TL/WR version: Don't like reskins/rehashes - but understand that devs are bound by the story Miss getting new artifacts - but understand that the dev cycle here went to tweaking existing artifacts and catalysts. The 218 weekly mission is a lot more than JLD's 54... but a lot less than AoJ's 400+ Like many of you, my first instinct was "WUT!? This is just a bunch of rehashed, re-skinned content! RAWR!!!", but after that initial impulse... and thinking about it for a bit... the devs are kinda handcuffed by the story. All the places we re-visited? The story basically demands that we revisit them... Now, the devs could have taken those assets, rearranged them, and said "VOILA! Now you're in a DIFFERENT part of Central City / OA / Batcave / etc.!!", but would that really have helped matters? I think we would still have the same complaints we have now, and the devs would have just wasted some cycles... So basically, while I don't like the rehash/reskins, I see why they did it continuity-wise, and don't see a good alternative for the devs. Then there's artifacts... I'll be honest, I was disappointed when I learned there would be no artifacts in this ep (someone please correct me if I'm wrong), especially after being spoiled by Atlantis and JLD. I was really hoping - at the very least - to get another episode-specific artifact ala Van Helsing's Lantern. But then again, they did basically revamp the catalyst system and re-balance the artifacts, so I imagine they didn't have time to create new artifacts. I'd expect them to arrive in Part II. So yeah, another give and take. I've seen a lot of complaining regarding the 218... but considering the range is between 54 in JLD and 400 (-something) in AoJ, isn't 218 smack dab in the middle? Again... a give and take. The one thing I will say is that the difficulty balancing seems... off. For me, my main problem is with False Idols. That initial rush of mobs at the hands of Ares has led to many wipes and even more quits in my experience... but everything after that is basically cake. I've run it twice, and both times we've wiped on that first part at least twice... and then never again in the raid. Weird.
