Re: Changes to Equipment

Good post Tor, I agree with more or less everything in it, and you basically explained my feelings regarding the EQ-uniqueness changes in a better way than I had been able to previously :) The idea of making all big bosses always have _something_ (but not always the top tier stuff) is definitely als...

Re: Alignment

Cherek metions one point that matters a lot: Distribution of grinders. At higher end , if I recall correctly, most of the areas with highest xp footprint are neutral or good aligned. Locking evil out of some of these may require development of new evil only grinders to balance it out, unless we wan...

Re: Alignment

Redblade: Yes I know some goodie guilds are already very restrictive, so for them it won't be a big change. but for others, where you can drop relatively far, or even all the way to neutral, it will be a big change, as they will suddenly be able to throw RP and theme out the window and go grind in K...

Re: Changes to Equipment

As Cherek said, with several hundred sturdy bracers/greaves in the game already, you wont be seeing the droprate as it will look in 2-3 months when all of those are broken. This is the issue with tweaks on something that deals with diminishing returns. Does it suck now, yes. Will it suck in 3 month...

Re: Changes to Equipment

Cherek, Here is what I wrote on 29 December: "Does anyone else think we've gone a bit too far with the sturdy black armours?" (emphasis added). Earlier today, Snedecor wrote this: "There's a fine line between making something an awesome find and just torturing people with hopelessness. This is over...

Re: Changes to Equipment

So... as always it's hard to know the exact sweetspot between too rare and too common. I think this is all people are asking for. I don't think every time you kill the death knight you should get the bracers as a pity reward. "No skullplate? It's ok man, here's some bracers." But I think it's reaso...

Re: Changes to Equipment

It's not just those though. And have you hunted in Raumdor? It's terrible. Most enemies don't even have the opportunity to have them on that spawn (shades and trolls and wraiths and spectres and hands and mists). It's not just the greaves and bracers though. It's the skullplate, the midnight black ...

Re: Changes to Equipment

Sylphan: If someone says "these changes suck", it kind of implies that they liked things as they were before the change and would prefer the changes reverted? That's what I replied to. It sure sounded like Snedecor wanted things to go back the way they were, and that's why I said I do not think we s...
