1. Get the new Mod8 quest (from an old NPC in PE) 2. Go to Drowned Shore (An old Zone with nothing new added) 3. Fight the crab encounter 100 times (an old simple encounter no one thought they would ever have to do again) 4. The crab encounter spawns every ten minutes: 100 x 10 minutes = 1000 minutes = 16.7 hours wait time
Summary of new content:
You are FORCED to wait in Drowned Shore near the Crab spawn area for a total of SIXTEEN mind-numbing hours in order to complete the quest to obtain the weapon.
That's example one. There are three more EXACTLY like it for each of the other three elemental types.
