  • I'm a hoarder in this game, so have been doing quite well with the spike in the prices of mount insignia since they became refinable.
  • If you check the gear, each of those bonuses will have a name (the +3% to ranged powers is called "Snipers Perk" for instance). You can only stack the same buff twice - so you couldn't run 5x "Snipers Perk", you'd only get 6%, even with 5 pieces of gear that had the bonus. However, as you will have noticed, the…
  • Ok, a couple things stand out here: 1. In your preparation, did you also get a group of people together to run with you? Crazy as it seems, having a guild / alliance to go with, or a solid friends list of people to contact is just as important for stuff like this. The folks that spent time on Preview working together are…
  • There is "good" and there is "Xuna companions are the top 4 damage dealers in a LoMM run"...
  • Also, note that you'll likely need to log in to a character, then jump back to character selection to make a Gith.
  • I believe it just means you can't use a third-party chat client (I've used Trillian in the past) to access chat channels.
  • If your VIP is active, then log in to a character you already have. Then exit out to the "Change Character" screen, and select "Create New Character:. Gith should be an available option.
  • If you want to upgrade via AD, that option is already built into the companion. If you want tokens, you need to play the game - the devs have been pushing to make more rewards come from actual gameplay, and the Legacy Campaigns are an extension of that. If you want the tokens, they're fine with that - you'll just have to…
  • I placed an order on July 9, and it was filled on the 20th, if that's any help. I'd expect you see your Zen in about 11 days (Aug. 1).
  • Might it be possible for I'd settle for being able to reclaim the Cturday cloak - on my main I used it as a transmute when artifact necks were first introduced, and had to choose the RP or keeping the transmute...
  • Lance of faith -> Divine Glow -> Searing Javelins = a whole bunch of dead mobs - especially at your ilevel. Our DPS does just fine, if you're able to smartly manage your divinity - that means using a round of pips to restore divinity every couple of rounds. I usually fill Burning, cast javelins, fill radiant, cast BtS,…
  • (Playing as a Githzerai in a 5e campaign right now...) The INT bonus is because the Gith, as a whole, are smart, and know how to use that brainpower - enough to harness psionic power. Quick backstory on the Gith: they used to be one race, enslaved by the Illithids (mindflayers). Eventually free themselves. One faction…
  • I find that just running a circuit of the 3 lairs helps avoid this issue.
  • There is nothing more fun than finding out that the item you've had sitting gathering dust for some reason is now worth scads of AD....

  • The Barbarian in my guild has been BiS for years, and just keeps topping up his enchants when the top rank goes up. With all r15, the new artifacts, and runestones in the companion, he sits at ~212k power. The scary thing is, he's also capped most everything else, too, as well as being able to play his toon *really* well.
  • I have one alt that holds all unbound / BtA insignia - the last time I counted, they had over 100 different items, and this is after thinning down to create some legendary insignia. On my main, I have ~30 BtC insignia, and varying amounts (5-15-ish) on my various alts. The system needs to be reworked. It's as bad or worse…
  • So, there *is* epic gear available, but it just isn't the epic gear you want.... You could buy with seals - but you don't want that. You want to spend AD - but nothing available. You don't seem to be running MEs in Undermountain, either, which is a huge source of epic gear (and fairly quick, too!) - but you don't want to…
  • For the future, don't delete - the quest doesn't need to be removed for you to get 3 new challenge campaign quests. I do agree that having the BHE tied to a pair of zones where there is only 1 applicable BHE, that only spawns on a 3 hour timer, and you are unable to jump to an instance to get to a BHE that *has* spawned,…
  • Not to be terribly nitpicky, but according to the text, the Indomitable runestone only affects "pet's powers that target foes" - and the DoT generally doesn't target anything. That being said, companion powers could definitely use a bit of tweaking. And fixing.
  • There are two things I'd like to see when it comes to feats: 1. No feats that tie two powers together. That almost always uses up 2 of 3 encounter slots. Feats should only tie to one power - not rely on another power to trigger an affect. 2. A third, generic option, even if it's just a simple stat boost (maybe some of the…
  • +1 to this idea. Set the price at 2500 coalesced magic each (just like the other artifact gear), and some players would almost certainly buy them from there. I'd suggest that they be BtC on pickup, to avoid people gearing up alts with them.
  • Oddly enough, I main a Cleric. Maybe that's why my second set had a "earlgreybeard" tag on it.... Sorry about that. ;-) I agree that it'd be nice for players to eventually be able to get at least *a* set of new weapons - the Mountaineer aren't in the t-bar store yet, Watcher are even worse to try and get, and many players…
  • I'm still in my barkshield on my main - works fine, I have a rank 9 Bloodtheft on an alt, and it's ok. You don't want to be getting hit often enough to be firing off Thunderhead as DPS, so not sure why people would be running it.
  • While I totally understand why that makes sense (i got dc'd on a solo run the other night), with the introduction of the Watcher set / hidden bosses, this would be abused beyond belief. Group enters, 3 runes, no hidden shadow on first two bosses (or maybe all three, depending on the coding) - group all disconnects, and…
  • There are both green and blue Gond insignia, but no purple (epic). And, like all other insignia, you can't upgrade them.
  • You ever watch any of those cooking competition TV shows? Top Chef, Chopped, etc? Ever notice that when they want to make things difficult, they severely limit what the chefs have available to them? ("You must create a 7 course meal, using whatever is in this bachelor's fridge, and one frying pan!") Yes, they could have…
  • I'm more curious as to how that works in scaled areas - does the system see me as my actual level (80), or my scaled level (##)?
  • Because RNG hates you. You specifically. You know why. :-p Seriously, that's pretty much what it comes down to. I got two sets in about the first week of running MEs, and 3 more OH since. Others have numerous OH or MH, but not the other piece. Of course, I also didn't see a +5 ring from Omu until I took an alt there a few…
  • There is something going seriously wrong if you aren't able to solo things that are 10 levels below, regardless if it is the end-of-zone instance or not. I'd be curious to see your gear / stats / loadout, because NW is probably one of the easiest games to hop in to and stomp things with - and especially so if you're using…
