    Greetings Developers (or whomever reads this stuff),

    Please tweak this so it does not take 4 hours to finish. I'm sure many EQ players can sit for 4 hours and grind this out but.... isn't this supposed to be a celebration?

    Best,
    PF

    It took me six hours, and I didn't finish :)
  3. EnchFWO Augur

    Haven't had a chance to try this yet... what exactly takes so long to do in the mission?
  4. I_Love_My_Bandwidth Augur

    What? You don't enjoy beta testing on live servers?;)
  5. svann Augur

    Im sure if you bring a full group of raid geard players it will go quicker.

    Just finished, took, 3 and a box 4 hrs. We got all the drops but guessed the wrong room, so no Aug. It is a timesink.
  7. Aurastrider Augur

    Does anyone know if it scales or is it meant for level 110?
  8. Tevraii Journeyman

    At 110, everything was yellow, minus a few white conned books. I was able to smokegloom everything. I do not have an answer about scaling.
  9. Riou Augur

    Believe this one is supposed to scale yea, dunno how low of a level though
  10. Zaviere Augur

    My guess is lv75 is the lowest it will scale, since the bonus aug is Req Level 75

    The mission is completable in a few hours...let’s say 2-3, but you won’t have all the clues unless you clear nearly the whole zone. Many expletives were uttered after clearing the whole zone to guess the wrong room but get the murderer correct. Nice job on making mobs see SoS too...

    The correct room made zero sense to us. I guess we'll just have to get lucky.
  13. Ngreth Thergn Developer

    This mission scales 70 to 110. (Player level... so player level +1 to 3 overall, in general)

    There *IS* a way to know the correct room. If you know the murderer and took good notes along the way of things that "don't belong", and make a careful observation of the murderer before you state the room, then information *IS* available. (that's as much of a hint, and it's a fairly telling hint IMO, as I'm giving, at this time)

    One shortcut, if feasible around mobs, is that killing the hallway NPC's is not necessary, nor the "entry hall" Only the rooms that Melion asks about can have the clues.

    I used the zone base-pop. The only thing I changed is I made them level scale and in most cases their faction. So they have any abilities the Dreadspire base-pop has.

    You don't have to clear to correctly guess the murderer and room, you can do it without killing a single mob, only needing an Eye of Zomm type ability/click
  15. Tevraii Journeyman

    I suppose I am a bit confused then, we tried to pay attention and one item we needed to turn into the NPC dropped in the hallway before the ballroom off a werewolf, it was a baton. So in our case it would have been necessary to kill in the hallway.

    We'll give it another go this evening and see if we do better.

    Cleared every mob in zone afaik, except that track was telling me there were some (or at least 1) in the room behind the wall in the library. Could find no way to open that wall though. Got 2 drops and 1 ground spawn. Is there a way through that library wall? Are there more ground spawns? Nothing we picked up worked except a turkey.
  17. Nekro Journeyman

    These mobs are on steroids which is one thing that makes it take so long.
    Tried to pet tank it and they chewed through the pets.
  18. Zaviere Augur

    It's possible to click the front door (southern most door in the area you spawn into) to go to the path leading to the "zone in" from The Hive. You can also click up to the southern spire from the end of the bedroom hallway to the east of the entryway room.
  19. Fooba Elder

    Cleared the entire zone and ended up having to drop the task.

    I'm convinced you have absolutely no clue what fun is.
