    Kids: Daddy, look! I found a pine cone!
    R: Mmm-hmm. Sshhh. Daddy's trying to tank now kids. Show the pine cone to mommy.


    Kids: Daddy, daddy! There's a leech stuck to Jason's arm!"
    R: That's nice... tell Mommy to... darn it!!! Where did that stupid one-shot come...!!! Um, princess... can you pass Daddy an ice-cold beer please, OK?
    Princess: OK. Which one? This one?
    R: Sure, whatever. Yeah... dang it all .... what the heck is going on?!!
    Princess: (pops open beer, takes a few swigs) Here, Daddy.
    R: Thanks, baby girl. Hey, you opened it for Daddy. That's great. Now go play go fish with Mommy, OK?


    Kids: Daddy, look! Jason hooked his lip with a fishing rod!
    R: Mmm-hmm. That's cool. Show it to Mommy.
    Kids: I can't... Jason fell in the water and the fishing rod got stuck to a tree...
    R: Oh, that's interesting. We should show it to Mommy... Excuse me, what did you just type?! This idiot can't even pick up a barrel and he's whining about...
    Kids: Oh, never mind Daddy, Jason doesn't have the fishing hook in his mouth anymore. He's crying though.
    R: That's nice princess, look, be a good girl and fix Daddy a sandwich with some cheese puffs, OK?
    Kids: Uh-oh, Daddy. Mommy's coming and she looks mad...

    (eyes perk up)

    R: What? Mommy's coming? (slams laptop shut)

    Mommy: Tell me what in the royal heck you think you are doing in this camper while your family is ON VACATION and YOUR SON is BLEEDING OUT like a piece of SALMON?!!!!

    R: Nothing, honey. I was just checking an email from some clients in Taiwan that my boss told me has to be finished before Monday. But I'm done now.

    Mommy: What's the controller for?

    R: Umm... It's uh, faster... to type. Using the controller... and uh, my beer spilled on the keyboard... so...

    Mommy: You spilled beer on the darn keyboard?!!!

    R: What?! Um, no, I didn't mean that... I meant...

    Mommy: Do you have any idea how expensive that beer is? What are you doing drinking it anyway? Didn't I tell you before we left that the beer was for the children?!

    R: Sorry, baby. You're right.

    Mommy: That's right I'm right! Wait a minute... you better not have been playing DCUO again!!!

    R: But it's double XP artifact weekend!!!

    Mommy: I told you to keep your hands off of my DCUO account!!! You always mess up my skill point distribution and fortify the wrong artifacts!!!

    R: But the Amulet of Rao is cool...

    Mommy: I don't care if it's cool or not! Chill said Rao is trash and that Scrap of the Soul Cloak is the meta!!! Get your hands off my stuff!

    Chill: (evil laugh) Yes... that's right... another marriage dashed to pieces thanks to my YouTube channel. Today the forums, tomorrow the WORLD!!!

    Editor's note: Sorry it got weird at the end, I couldn't resist. :eek:o_O

    New artifacts being released doesn't change the fact that it's still meant to be long-term progression, and yes...feeding the new artifacts for their respective feats would stop progression of other artifacts...but that would be temporary. Once you get the feats you can either keep the new artifacts and go back to your regular feeding schedule OR feed those new artifacts into the older non-maxed out ones and go back to your normal progression schedule. Where's the actual problem???

    What are you talking about??? Replays aren't required. Just run content, kill things and Nth metal drops. Run the vault, do the stabilizer duo. No replays required to do any of that. Whatever Nth Metal you get will have its XP doubled....nice bonus, keep it moving.

    I think the only problem here is that the last time they did the Double XP weekend on artifacts, it was shortly before the Kryptonian ones came out that most everyone then wanted to try and level up. If you have a ton of Nth saved up, and your best artifact today you were trying to level was say level 141, dropping all your Nth in that artifact might progress it 8 or 9 levels...then the next day they come out with a better, more attractive artifact (or 4 artifacts like last time), with feats attached, you now have to start the grind again. Now the double still makes using the Nth this weekend the better deal, but I can see where you might want to swap progression from one artifact's 148.5 to 149 today for 4 artifacts leveled to level 20 and 4 feats tomorrow if given the choice. I think if the feats were not attached to the new artifacts, no one would care. The feats make it a 'want it now' thing.

    All I know is that I saved my Nth for the last 2 months and ground out 40 TCs (been sitting on stabilizers....bought none) to collect extra sunstones and took one artifact from 122 to 142 (I'm 8 seals lighter now too), and a level 4 kandor soda to show for it. Meh, anti-climactic if you ask me, especially for the 20-25 slots I've been eating up these last 2 months.

    Thanks Mepps. I got a question for you. I have all my style feats unlock and now have nothing worth while to spend my marks of victory, i think it would be a good idea to make the nth metal you buy from Constantine a more reasonable price and maybe add the ability to buy the purple 1000 xp nth metal rom Constantine as well.

    Just a tip, use MoV to buy Catalysts and sell them. I do it daily and you can make millions.

    Thing is that most of those feats go up to Lvl 20-40 at most...not that great of an investment to qualify as a great disruption of progression. Not to mention that if you don't like those artifacts, you can feed them into ones you are working on or wait for new ones...and they take much less space than the Nth Metals themselves.

    I hear you and others that have the same opinion. However, I don't think, that a SP increase by 1 isn't that impactful and you wouldn't need it "now". Think about it. With the kryptonian Artifacts it was I think 25pts for each Artifact Rank 25. That's not even a whole SP.
