    100% on them. Prior to the server migration I never had issues with group invites. Now I send and it takes 10-20 seconds to show up.

  9. ShadowMan replied to the thread Where is our necro DoT revamp????.

    100% but the ask's largely came the three years prior to ToV. Now its scalpel time and we likely still get sledge treatment.

    ROS had it right. Normal raid was best and multiple trade skill drops per chest filled the rest as close enough.
