  • Still no fix for the HE rewards is very disappointing, missed out on the last AD event because I couldn't claim the currency from campaigns that were included in the event, but rewards couldn't be claimed. My main is now parked not because the game…
  • (Quote) Oops.
  • The Mountaineer set is in the Free section of the Zen market, not the trade bar store.
  • (Quote) My issues began with the Elemental Evil campaign heroics. Up until yesterday, if I completed another HE, the reward was claimable, and I'd get a box that says "Open Another" that would then shoot the same error message as when I c…
  • (Quote) So I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that you don't play many MMOs? This will be far from the first time that some content has had to be removed, or locked, due to something glitching out. I would also like to point out that a dungeo…
  • @aratech By the time 4e released, Gygax and company were long gone from Dungeons and Dragons. They were all gone before WotC got ownership of what was left of TSR. So no hidden 4e jokes, they wouldn't apply to the statements I made. Regarding the…
  • Yep, this really needs to be addressed, I am unable to collect rewards in any HEs, including places where I could yesterday.
  • (Quote) At no point in their time did they envision players being demigods either, but if we compare toons from NW currently, pick a zone, to players in PnP, they are exactly that. So, concessions are made for cRPGs, and frankly, even outside of a …
  • (Quote) I stopped reading right here. The books that tell stories from the D&D universe came well after the table top game. The Dungeon Master's guide hadn't been written yet, nor the Monster Manuals, or the Player Handbook. All were, essenti…
  • (Quote) Lots of people want to see me naked... When I returned, I wasn't best in slot anywhere. Well, maybe I was, for back then, but playing prior to the update was still just as easy as it was when I left. None of my enchants were maxed, still …
  • (Quote) So your solution is that anyone that found the game too easy should just play naked, with no weapons, so that you can be carried through w/out ever having to learn even the basics of the game. I can see that being good for the health of an …
  • (Quote) I played it when the Player's Handbook was a pamphlet. Does that make me an expert? Not sure, but it does mean that I've got a bit of experience with it. I can look up on my desk right now and see my dice, still here, after all these year…
  • (Quote) Do you even D&D? Of course there's scaling, otherwise there's no point in running a campaign, is there. Everyone rolls up, gets their max level, with max level gear and goes home. I guess it makes cleanup easier that way?
  • (Quote) No, but apparently I did? I'm basing my comments on being around the industry for a very long time. This isn't my first MMO, it's not even my 10th, I'm way past that. I was way past continuing to support this game in 2013, when it was so …
  • How many patches have they released since the live stream?
  • (Quote) You honestly believe that the devs looked at player feedback and said "yeah, let's make the game harder"? If so, I've got some ocean front property in Arizona to sell ya'. Here's how that really works: They look at their back en…
  • I completed an encounter the other day, and when I try to collect the reward, it says I already have it. Completing another allowed me to actually get that reward, but when I hit the Open Another button, it gave me the same message. I'm not sure h…
  • (Quote) I'm thinking Tubular Bells from the Exorcist... I've seen them scattered all over the place.
  • (Quote) I've played MMOs past my actual enjoyment of them for the same reasons. Most of the crowd I gamed with 10 years ago are friends on FB now, and have even "recruited" me to return to a game now and then. Eventually, however, if I'm…
  • (Quote) Feel free, but let's be truthful about what we're saying? How about citations for "vast majority"? In PE I've seen the same 10 people going on for a while now, so unless the population is only 15, that hardly qualifies. How abou…
  • (Quote) Irony? I've been told repeatedly in PE zone that I'm a newb, and that there's nothing wrong with that. I went in with a class that I don't play, and found I could complete the content. The only thing I was looking to see is if this conten…
  • So I find myself wondering: If I went to a therapist, and told them I was doing stuff constantly that I didn't find fun, despite getting advice to find other stuff to do from others, how long it would take for me to be locked up. It's like standin…
  • (Quote) Yeah, I'm thinking I'm going to do the same thing, just to see. Something I ran into the other day, in another zone, is finishing the boss, but missing a drop I needed, and going back for it, and missing out on the end chest, which didn't l…
  • (Quote) This is laughable. There is no "betterment of the game" going on here, there's only resentment about the game not being "nod off in combat easy" any more. So how about some of that "truth": 1. Leveling zones…
  • (Quote) So you can put words in my mouth, or state the intent of my post, and that's fine, but if I post my perception of your intent, it's "putting words in your mouth"? Let's take a minute to consider the ramifications of that statement…
  • (Quote) It's really not salt, it's realism. It's watching a healer have a meltdown in zone chat about actually having to heal in a group now, as opposed to whatever it was they were used to doing, which I'd guess was closer to leeching their way th…
  • Salt: I may have to work harder to get the things I used to just roll solo. Issue: Apparent bug with an OnDeath script that doesn't allow the mobs to drop specific items. I trust that you filed a bug report on your issue, instead of, or along wi…
  • (Quote) Yes, I have, and I'm not uncomfortable reading any of them, even ones where I was wrong about something I said. It happens, and I'm just far enough right of center as to not believe that everyone has to share my opinions or be shouted off a…
  • (Quote) Except it wasn't a "call out", it was an observation from someone who's playing both games. Poster made a claim, and I submitted my take on the comparison. If you want to call that a call out, I'll roll with it. Oh, I get it now…
