Open only the new box the day of..then save my keys again for the next box. Everyone is different. To me, a good reason to invest in VIP. In case you don't believe in good things come to…
  • I would posit that they have an incentive to do this: It's how they make their money. Thanking them for putting much sought after items behind a gambling mechanism? Well, I suppose there are all sorts of people in the world. 🤷‍♂️
  • > @greywynd said: > But in the end it is still only entertainment. You own nothing except maybe the device you're playing on. And that does nothing to instill confidence or desire in the player/potential customer to spend/continue spending money (which Cryptic needs them to do as a business). Are the basics of quality…

  • > @greywynd said: > Did you have fun playing? Did you get use out of what you paid for? Ever the one to skirt the issue, and try to avoid answering legitimate observations and questions directly that make for uncomfortable reading if one is on or for Team Cryptic. Feel free to try another glib reply in an effort to…

  • > @oldbaldyone said: > The problem is, most people spend a ton of time and resources getting enchantments, runestones, insignias and collars. The game is designed for these things to be a massive grind, with the idea being their worth will always be there. Other gear is relatively easy to get, but this stuff takes a ton of…

  • > @kreatyve said: > Technically - you didn't buy anything. If you want to get technical about it, you are renting pixels. You are not allowed to sell anything off your account for cash. You get no physical goods. The sooner that players *realize not to spend money on this kind of ponzi scheme*, the happier off they will…

  • > @hotfrostworm said: > My wife asked me to translate this wall of text to her tonight when she calls me. From my perspective, unless I am wrong this is just a developer who allowed you in on upcoming alpha changes. The changes are not even set and many of you are walking around with sandwich signs, "The End is Nigh!…
  • > @arazith07 said: > There needs to be AD sinks in the game in order to slow the rate of inflation. In my opinion, there should be more AD sinks like this, not less. It's a drop in the ocean - so much so, that it only serves as an irritation, and discourages fashion in this game. Want AD sinks? Sell items players both want…
  • > @greywynd said: > They lost what amounted to their DPS path when each class was reduced to 2 options. Gods, I miss the pre-Mod 16 combat-&-skill-tree system.
  • Just wait as more players come to realize they'll need upgrade reagents for their season pass weapon set from Avernus hunts.....BiS truly end-game players have struggled to bring down t3 hunts. How on earth are the more regular casual/non-BiS players supposed to do it? To those who know how to play ToMM, that run is easier…

  • > @"zimxero#8085" said: > Where I live now, the power goes out more often than in any other town I've ever lived in. It goes out at least 50 times per year. They have never sent me a refund for lost productivity or damages. If every resident sent in a claim each time, they would spend all their time doing claims. There is…
  • > @falkenblackhand said: > Basically it took what we had, downgraded it, added another tier and forces us to upgrade not one but ten mounts to get back what we had with one BEFORE this change. All under the shiny guise of a brand spanking new tier we have to pour tons of AD and or Zen into to achieve. I was hoping I would…

  • > @autumnwitch said: > Bioware would give us the Neverwinter we deserve. Years ago I would have agreed when dealing with the BioWare of old. These days?.... Yeah, no.
  • > @dolrey said: > Massive-Wall-of-Text You again. You had similar complaints before Mod 16. You got your wish, and it destroyed the game, and replaced it with a worse combat experience, everything from movement speed to cool downs being slower, and an instant massive devaluation of players' resources (i.e. AD, companions,…
  • The real way you win at this game is by walking away (and spending your time, efforts, and money on other activities/pursuits/games/people). 🙂
  • > @melechest said: > @lantern22 > > I said that in response to someone talking about dps not being able to run ahead in lower item level dungeons. If you read what i say in this post, i have seen dps being able to do it both in lomm and IC, and these are by no means old content. The one thing im asking is for the dps to…

  • > @melechest said: > @zyronax observations? yes. Factual? no. I didnt say anything about Zariel, cause its really the only difficult trial in the game. And for tomm and IC, depending on the group, are very easy. <snip> I see a lot of "I don't like it" in your response. You are entitled to your own preferences....Just like…
  • What you are clamoring for has already been clamored for before, and it was implemented, and it brought NW as a game to its knees. It took Cryptic roughly a year to somewhat iron-out the disaster that was Mod 16, and it still casts its ugly shadow over NW today. 20-25% of the PC player population left when Mod 16 hit. It…

  • It updates the role bonus depending on which class role is needed for the parties already queued. I've even seen (and gotten) the rare dps-role bonus. It's working as intended. You've been unlucky in your timing. Next time either keep switching quickly and hope the role is still there, or wait for it to change to your…
