  • Xuna is a female. They love to change their clothes and hairstyles to follow the latest high fashion trends. Enough said ;)
  • I can certainly give you a partial answer to that: In order to force more players to inject Zen into game and increase Cryptic's income, it will be harder to obtain Zen(or Zen-purchased goods) by other means than buying it for real money. Be carefu…
  • You are guaranteed at least 19 Arcane Focus per week from quests, but you likely will get some as random drops too. So you are looking at 5-6 weeks for farming at most.. that sounds in line with the other farming challenges in game. For what is th…
  • I am getting worried their promise of servers coming up is like their promise of bringing back the Arc Zen rewards...
  • A level 5 winning the parse is sort of surprising though. It just shows what massive problems the new combat system has. No boons, very few skills.. and winning ToMM parse. No point in levelling up or farming boons guys!
  • Which directly points to the demand for more AD sinks to balance the economy. When Cryptic started dropping refined AD into the economy, the ZAX queue responded by growing, as expected. When Cryptic dropped massive amounts of AD into the economy as…
  • As it is, the ZAX basically is there to support the non-paying players. For the paying players the purpose of the ZAX is to convert Zen to AD, and that can be better done by selling Zen items on the AH. So the big question is: How important are t…
  • Yeah, I was just noticing the same. The activity here on official forums has dropped dramatically. That is also the case on Reddit.. and a lot of the Reddit posts these days are newbies asking for basic advice. So even your post is meant to be pos…
  • Mod 20 episode 1 has too little content to be of much interest. I am *hoping* it is because they thought a new mod with new area to explore would compensate for little content, so they are saving their bang for episodes 2 and 3. If episode 2 and 3…
  • It is a good time for new players that put AD into game. :)
  • From Cryptic's point of view: The only *real* problem with the ZAX today it is a suckers bait for valuable new players that do not know they can get a lot more AD for the Zen by selling items on AH. The only people losing out on the long queue is p…
  • Yes, rework the Zen store to put even more great items only available for Zen into it! What do you think would happen to the Zen queue in this scenario? :)
  • That would basically be the same as removing the cap on the ZAX.
  • Yes, but is not a lot of that price increase already in effect on the AH? Just look at the price for pwards...
  • The important thing to remember is that Zen sales is Cryptic's main source of income. So suggestions like removing Zen altogether will never happen.. unless they then introduce the new Nez currency that fulfills the same job of course :) * For the…
  • Queue has been fairly stable at just over 69M Zen on PC the last 1-2 weeks. We have seen this before, queue usually tends to stabilize at some level until some event makes it move again. The last event that pushed it up was the bondings payout. It …
  • I think the current low activity level is not only driven by the Combat Rework attrition, but also because mod 20 chapter 1 is so slim and most are done with it. It is usual activity levels are low at end of mod.. and we are in an 'and-of-mod' situ…
  • Yeah, and they have succeeded too well with that. Now it is almost pointless to improve your gear in scaled content.
  • In scaled content, after combat rework, the level of performance between a BiS tank and a lesser geared tank is not that huge. It is more a question about a proper build. Discussion moved away from tank overall performance to whining about gear dif…
  • I have been watching the Zen processed per day for a long time, and it seems to be a fairly stable way to measure what is going on with the Zax, including using it to estimate completion times. It will however fluctuate some over time, but the chan…
  • So 0.37M/day processing rate.
  • So basically they drained the market of a lot of unwanted empowered runestones, which should help to keep the price of them up.
  • Or just give tanks 20% damage resistance along with their 20% extra hp.
  • The method we have been using earlier to estimate wait times is amount of Zen processed each day. It previously used to be at around 0.5M Zen/day. However, looking at the data above, it seems to be significantly lower now, down towards 0.35M Zen/da…
  • Lower experience and gear levels in RQs is very noticeable since it seems Combat Rework and the somewhat underachieving Mod 20 episode 1 scared away a lot of the veteran players. It was the same after mod 16.. and just as the game was recovering fr…
  • I'll just support @regenerde in this: * It most likely is not the Neverwinter installation that brought this into your system * You need to get a tool to scan and remove the malware - it is unlikely you can fix this manually by yourself
  • I agree. I have a tank and a healer I use for quick RQ run AD farming. It used to be 50/50 role bonus tank/heal, but recently it is really hard to find role bonus for healer. Cryptic probably have good statistics on this. I would assume they genera…
  • The AD injected into the economy as reimbursement for the Bonding runestones pushed ZAX queue length up a lot.
  • My problem with my tank is not so much directly related to the numbers as such, but how he is performing. The recent upgrade to threat multiplier fixed part of it. However his defenses are a bit too low. When I get to tank a big heap of 5-10 mobs…
