  • I'm afraid we'll keep debating for a solution till the end of the event and possibly over. Shame for that third unobtainable book that so many would have gladly grinded for :/
  • I still remember the old days of original DV and all that I can say is: plenty of adds in a lenghty dungeon was good when the combat system included exponential synergy buffs in the parties and lots of movement boosting skills/items. These conditions made the dungeon on par with the combat system running at that time and…
  • You're right, it's 2.4%. Still you don't get 1 second cooldown before the damage bonus is applied and it's true that it's meant to be a complessive bonus and not a direct increase of 2.4% damage on overall DPS, but it's consistent on every hit and it doesn't depend on chance. Even more, with the sudden powercreep give by…
  • And here goes another kick in the mouth of customers. Now all the population in NW will be slotting radiants for 2400 power, i.e. 4,8% increase of damage for each enchantment slotted in an offensive slot, while one of the main chances to keep up with aggro (in a very inconsistent manner) was slotting tenebrous for having a…
  • I have considered it, but essences drop individually in the end chest and don't seem to be a choking point to activate the wraith. In a full party running regularly ME there are always enough essences to activate the wraith, so it doesn't actually lower the chances to obtain the set weapons (even if the odds are still…
  • Make those 75 RP count :#
  • Lol you should post a screenshot, at least it's worth a laugh :P
  • That's a huge holy symbol :)
  • If there is an internal cooldown not indicated clearly or if the tooltip's percentages don't correspond to the real numbers, it would be a plain scam over those enchantments. Hope this won't be another case in which the answer will be silence.
  • Can't wait for the next driftwood stream
  • You even mentioned the obvious beholder theme of the set and can't see the connection with one of the largest secret thieves guild mainly know for how many beholders are in their ranks (not counting the boss which is a beholder named "The Eye") and which are present as mobs in many parts of Undermountain? Still I think…
  • From min 6:50 in the stream recording.
  • By the way, "the eye" is a recurring element in dialogues, the Watcher's set description and the beholder concept. It is incidentally also the alias of the Xanathar, the kingpin beholder ruling over all the Xanathar guild found around in Undermountain. The Eye controls all beholders in Undermountain other than the whole…
  • There has been quite a lot of brainstorming lately, with plenty of theories that are fun to read but have unfortunately started to stretch a bit too far to be plausible. We have two solid points to work on since tuesday's stream, which should be focused upon to find a solution to the riddle. The first is that someone, in…
  • During the quest chain you have to upgrade the resonator in order to use resonances to create and use runes during master expeditions. Anyways almost everyone doing master expeditions has an enhanced resonator in inventory but still noone seems to have found a way to obtain the Watcher's set. The community manager has…
  • If someone wants to try it, you can use the fishing rod while standing on top of the waterfall running down the chasm and, if I guess correctly, also in the pool after the second campfire in the area where there's a big wooden floor that collapses. If fishing is broken and it's needed to proceed in the hunt for rare…
  • In Chult there are specific places where you can lure out hunts; it's completely possible that the "rare monsters" in Undermountain could only be lured near the spots where that pattern appears. This could be the kind dicrepancy @rafaelda was referring to. With all the stuff going on with this module, why should the devs…
  • One of my theories proved true in today's ME. While the environment in the various areas is identical in every other aspect, there is a subtle addiction that appears randomly. On some cavern ceilings, in specific places, there's a chance for some kind of luminescent starry pattern to be present; it doesn't always appear in…
  • I tried it but the plinths don't accepts anything other than resonances and runes. While looking for something related to rare monsters and a way to use essences, I've killed plenty of times the named monster in the leveling areas of Undermountain but they have never dropped anything more than standard loot (coins and…
  • Even if the "rare undermountain monster hunt" has been thought to be some kind of secret that players have to discover, Essence awakening to restore the Successor Set should in some way at least be hinted at in order to complete the content that has been added with last module. As I stated before I don't mind solving…
  • Tenebrous enchantments have stopped working alltogether with today's patch.
  • Yes, now also rank 14 have stopped working. No idea if the other ranks are also affected. It starts to feel like being inside a joke.
  • They drop randomly from the chest, putting more than 1 rune doesn't make any difference. Got 3 on a toon, 2 on another one and 1 on the third. Evidently I'm lucky with those and not with the Alabaster weapons, because none of them has ever seen an offhand since they started doing ME (couple days after mod release) :/
  • Yeah, I've noticed that too, even if the icons are identical. The flavor text for the awakened Essence of Despair says: "A feeling of despair washes over you when you touch this sigil", so it's different from the unawakened one. There has to be some way to transform the unawakened item into his awakened form and it could…
  • This is what I've been investigating recently. So far I've found three different items called Essence of Regret (icon shows some kind of hoof, like the ones of a Goristro), Essence of Despair (a broken mask adorned with feathers) and Essence of Longing (an hilt of a broken rapier). The names remind me strongly of Umbraxxar…
  • It's even sadder for us PC players to have that weapon choice effectively barred in favour of Alabaster or Burnished set. With the new dungeon already available there will be little chance to have the Watcher's set as an option, considering that everyone will probably have already maxed out one of the other weapon sets for…
  • Thank you for the clarification, at least we now know there's a chance to obtain it :) If it's not too revealing, may we know if expeditions are actually involved in the process to get that particular set? The new mod is huge and any hint would be helpful.
  • On which basis? Has anyone ever dropped one of those artifact weapons under those conditions or it's only a personal supposition? I wouldn't mind some riddle solving in order to get particular items in game, but that "you can find it in: Expeditions - ??" is definitely too vague to be interpreted and nobody to my knowledge…
  • I have extensively tested a setup comprising 3 Tenebrous Enchantments, rank 14 and 1 Tenebrous Enchantment, rank 15. These are the results of the tests: Slotting 2 Tenebrous Enchantments, rank 14 in each of a ring's offense slots, 1 Tenebrous Enchantment, rank 14 and 1 Tenebrous Enchantment, rank 15 on separate items: On…
