as i remember perfectly it was from an event, i understand that, why can't that EVENT REPEAT? why was it a only 1 time? i wish to own a Cambion Magus since this active bonus is making a huge difference, yet it was given in a one time promotion ? it doesn't make sense to me...
if it were like a special thing that would make a difference that wouldn't give you such a huge increasement in damage, more like an appearnce item, such as a mount nowadays of 50% speed. i would've understand, but this item impacts the DPS heavily... so come on do somethin about this

    They should just add it to the zen market. Same goes for the wild hunt rider on consoles, not sure why these haven't been added yet. $$$ to be make from these two companions.

    Huge difference? Common... Epic SW pack companion has same bonus & is accountwide. Combo of 3 archons plus siege master. Plenty of other options out there. Owlbear cub before the fix procing of dots that was a companion with huge impact on dps both pvp & pvewise. 10% crit severity? Pff. Looks to me someone doesn't quite understand what special promo items mean. If any Jack & Joe can easily get one its not really that special. With all the bugs & glitches in game this is your complain? Really?
    P.S. Don't have it too btw. Couldn't care less. But do believe ppl who got it during that one special promo have every right for it to be a unique item.

    yep yep yep - you clearly know what you are talking about "Epic SW pack companion has same bonus & is accountwide" - just lol

    I second the OP - in fact why has the sets of mod6 been completely nerfed because others are unable to obtain them but the cambian magus has been unobtainable for eons but it has not been nerfed nor have we been given the chance at another event where we could get one?

    I'll bite. What is the difference between the two bonuses? Both offer 10% crit severity and that is the main DPS booster...what is missing?

    MOD6 sets were nerfed for one reason: People doing speed runs of brand new content, bragging a little too loudly at how fast they could do it, almost always wearing MOD6 sets. Had those people done the content in what devs considered proper gear, we'd still have those old sets in play today. I don't exactly disagree with the nerf on them either...they were flawed to begin with and were just getting worse.

    Also a note from above: The Archon bonus for multiple doesn't seem to work. I still run 3 archons, Siege master and the sellsword (you want to improve DPS, the Sellsword or Con Artist rocks...probably more than the Mage. 10% defense reduction that stacks...yes please).

    I've been telling them for almost two years now that there's a few very desirable companions that were promotion only, and they'd make excellent rewards for upcoming promotions.

    That being said, when you consider overall impact to DPS, 10% crit severity isn't actually very good. But regardless, some people really enjoy stacking it, so more power to them.

    I'll second the question. As long as we are talking about active bonus where is the amazing DPS ?

    Assuming 100% crit chance, and having vorpal and boons lets say a players has 150% crit severity.
    Erinyess will add 4% dps.
    Adding the magus on top will add 3.8% dps.....

    I don't see how this impacts the DPS heavily.. there are better options widely available.

    Seriously, not sure what the fuss is all about, from someone who actually has a Cambion and is using one, it's unnecessary to have one. You can do just fine without and having one does not give you great advantage over anybody. Rare does not mean best in slot.

    I want a chance to get the death salad. Cryptic likes having these mediocre zen promotions, but nothing big like this one was.

    I think it is pretty logical for a ghoul asking for death salad. :)

    This thread had a small point to make, and with your responses, you shot them right out of the water. Since the bonus is available to you, your qualm is simply that there is a companion you can't have.

    On that note, I'd like the Caturday title, the Cloak of Etherealness, and the Draconic Templar armor put back in the game to be available. Some people have it, and therefore, I should have access to it to. Oh, and I'd like the participation trophies I should have got in grade school for the baseball seasons that my team didn't do very well - cause it shouldn't matter if you win or lose...everyone is a winner.

    To be fair, most people who want a Cambion want to use it alongside the Erinyes for crit severity stacking, not by itself.

    This is the Cryptic: buy something valuable, spend horrors of AD OR cash until one day the item will no longer be valuable because it will be nerfed (death slaad, cambion, elol set, owlbear et all). It is the logic of not having logic, but rather of deceiving the next one while $$$ What about class balancing? What about the infinite f* @hamster grindind (+5 ring, new rings, new armor who never drop from FBI, and if they drop NEVER is what you expect rofl)? What about the table drop? What about DRAGONS, DUNGEONS and HISTORY? Second or third in the plans? Do not mock with your customers devs.

    For a BIS toon (at least in offensive stuff) who can't get any dps boost from anywhere else, a 3.8% or 4% dps increase is A LOT. I'd trade my siegemaster for a cambion magus on my dps GF, but not on my SW since she has more-than-desirable things that can't crit. I'd even use it over earth archon when I'm tanking.

    To anyone who cares, there is a difference between the cambion magus and the erinyes. The erinyes is not the companion in the slot just above the erinyes--which could be providing an additional 10 per cent crit sev.

    I tend to agree that crit sev doesn't equal per cent damage bonus, but I do like to mix the two.

    You "tend" to agree?
