    They haven't used the slippery ice terrain in locations with severe environmental hazards (like where falling in the water can kill you).

    "New Gameplay: Fishing – We’re heard your feedback and have made fishing a whole new system built as a mini-game! Come try your luck and skill… but try not to become bait yourself!"

    Can you please link us the "our feedback" part since I haven't heard of anyone liking this feature.

    Short memories. While nobody likes the hella-buggy Lonelywood fishing, lots of people over the years have asked if we could have permanent fishing like from the winter event.

    They can't even get people to use the stronghold weapon set and they're trying to push stronger weapons on everyone. No thanks. The grind for any weapon set is punishing enough.

    It's because the Stronghold bonuses are stupid (only works with other people who have the set) and the amount of work to unlock them in Masterwork profession is...daunting.

    Oh good, new artifact weapons. Just when you might have been closing in on the last ultimate weapon, here's a new one! Back on the treadmill for you!
    @Venture-1 @Venture from City of Heroes if you remember that far back. Yes, *that* Venture. Yes, I probably trashed your MA arc. For me it was Tuesday.

    Goodbye stronghold weapon set, and yet another nail in the coffin for mastercrafting (RIP soon). Guess there is really no reason to grind this lousy professions stuff at all anymore.

    HAHAHAAH!!! so true!

    This is why I am still perfectly comfortable with my elemental set. I still kill stuff prety good at 3.3IL. I perposfully didnt get the twisted set because I knew another was just around the corner. I still may not even go for it if a portion of its stats are allocated to Black Ice resistance.

    -New Artifact Weapons - In your continued efforts to reclaim lost relics from the frost giants, you will earn powerful artifact -weapons. These weapons are far stronger than any seen before. You are going to need them to take down Jarl Storvald!

    so should i assume we are going to have to farm the trial in order to get the new artifacts? we are going to need them to beat jarl but in order to get them we need to beat jarl right?

    same thing for getting this relic gear, which i don't even have 2 pieces yet. boots are easy to get but farming FBI for the relic gear so far has been hard. most of my guildies and friends don't want to waste time in FBI. so me trying to just do the run it is hard enough, then i actually have to grind it out. so far i haven't been able to grind it.
    how has everyone else faired at grinding FBI?

    You have people who are farming FBI, but never even bothered with the relic set due to the insane costs of maintaining it.

    Just like the BI armor and weapon sets of mod 3. Don't waste your time on em. You know what happened once mod 6 rolled in. They were all invalidated and ended up as useless trinkets. All that misery for nothing....

    Since the complete and utter flop of the last 5 mods I really don't see how the more than a million or so extra refining we will need per toon for the new artifact weapon will get the players excited.

    Looks like another massive resource waste but still there will not be enough resources for 13 months to fix CW or OP(the 2 classes hit hardest by unfair needs in the past. Both are way sub par to all other classes ... I guess they want to save the hardest job for last).
    There are more than BIS players in this game
    It has been 5 YEARS since last new class this is getting ridiculous
    FORCING the majority of your player base to play 4 mod old dungeons and trial will have a bad result on player base
    Please do master/normal version of dungeons. This way content for all MOD 19 have nothing new for vast majority of player base. Giving an EVENT is not same thing as permanent content for non BIS. As we suggested in CDP
    Changes are getting so bad i would rather prefer no new changes (RIP ICE FISHING in winter fest)

    @dheffernan Twisted set is out for already a long time. It was about time to get new tier of gear. Officially mod 10 should have had a new weapon set as it introduced a new tier of gear.

    Also .... its normal practise in MMO-land to introduce new gear tiers so why complaining?

    Lastly, I wouldn't call doing edemo 20x a grind. I think you have done other content much more often than that.

    I wonder if you need to feed vorninblood to the weapons. Then they can just keep them...

    The rest of us were fine knowing we'd have weapons good for ~ a year.

    The people that got screwed by this were the people that got Stronghold weapons. 4+ million AD down the drain.

    You have to restore them. Doesn't seem like you need to empower them.

    just looking at the FBI raid relic gear i want to grind. the set bonus is not worth it at all. when can we get good set bonuses again for armors?
    the only reason the gear is decent is cause its stats are better, but the set bonus is completely useless in almost every case. well i guess its ok if at least the stats are somewhat better. i might stick with my drowcraft gear at this rate though.
    i miss the old corrupt black ice gear set bonus; back when set bonuses were good.

    the main reason FBI is not worth running is because the rewards are not worth the time or effort in doing it. if the relic gears set bonus was decent and the loot for doing a run was fair more people might run it.
    anyone know the drop rate of the relic gear? how many runs will i have to do just to get one piece i actually want?

    I love there are new game-play elements, instead of more dailies, but as we've seen in the Winter Festival fishing overcrowds the inventory, which is ok for an event, but not for the rest of year. Also hopefully it won't be to reliant on cash-shop items. I hope they won't just introduce another problem and the then bring a solution moths later like it happened with the Elemental Evil module. I'm really looking forward for more info on Fishing and Treasure Hunting. I've been looking for noncombat game-play since Icewind Dale. Please make it good!

    how has everyone else faired at grinding FBI?

    @strumslinger what is the royal allies? i was looking into how to get the trailblazer weapons and it said royal allies.
    set bonus is not bad, (heres the but) its not that great when compared to other set bonuses. stats are good.

    why not let the outgoing damage and defense of overcharge stack to 3? as for run speed and the healing just have its timers reset instead of stack.
    why have an overcharge cooldown? and why 30 seconds? (maybe because the buff is 10 seconds long) make it feel like sudden rings.

    any future plans on changing the trailblazer armor? cause the set bonus is really bad, i mean not that great. i didn't look at every classes set bonus for the armor but for the hr i did.
    *10% DR to giants-----------------this is not bad considering how much giants hurt you
    *4k movement under everfrost------i cant find a reason anyone needs more movement
    *10% damage on drinking everfrost--cant see a reason to even get the 3rd piece with this set bonus

    valhalla set is actually very nice, great show of a great set bonus.

    legendary rings are not easy to get are they? they are such a small improvement of epics and they have the same everfrost resist. not worth grinding for in my opinion.

    this is all really just my opinion, but though i say it anyone.

    Hi devs, just wondering if you could adjust the FBI item level requirements as well as make the amount of voninblod required to complete the campaign tasks less in quantity. Thanks alot for your time.

    BTW, the ER reinforcement on shirt and pants are still bugged (as in mod 10 and not fixed yet) the ER stat don't increase after I've applied them.

    Interesting, mine works fine. 6% listed on the sheet just as it should be.​​

    Just give us artifact armor set where u can change set bonus, even that would be better then 1 more weapon artifact set :( or cap it at 500 item lvl so we will grind it for 10 years that would be better then change items each 3 months. You use new items as bait for ppl to play new content, where u should try to make new content more interesting and before ppl are able to go to new maps they should have done at last 2 old campaigns. At last give ppl more ways to get voninblood let it drop in old dungs let relics to apear at stronghold too and even more at icewind dale module maps. Make it that ppl will have voninblood just for playing old content too so they wont see it as only grinding all time long. Sry for my bad english.
