    I don't think it would change the zone population, but yeah the raid version should be better, even if its a just by a little bit. It's silly.

    So uhh 46 people in Sol B just doesn't work same thing with 40 people in castle mistmoore. I kinda have a feeling these zones should of been instanced

    Get out of my zone!
  4. Laronk Augur

    lol the best part is I see people actually using tank mercs because they don't want to invite a tank to their group it's so rare

    argh

    Well 10min repop times, you can't necessarily afford to have people afk.

    Not that your reason isn't valid, but having something that can't go afk helps on a 5+ hour session heh.

    Total greedfest, man am I sick of all the wtb ant wts this item in chat. Make it no trade already and let people who want it go get their own. What a mess.

    First of all, the RNG is not my friend. Went at the zone for a solid 10 hours saturday night, saw one of these around hour 8, forgot how to play for a bit I was so deliriously happy about it. Was pulling so hard my damn bones hurt. Sunday night, went at zone a solid 14-15 hours probably, not a thing, although apparently a mob of mine I had been clearing wandered into another camp(I was camping stone spider/ldcs), with the cloak. Hurray for them, right? Hurray for me starting work Monday with no sleep!

    Needless to say, I was not happy, I do not wish them cancer any more, until they open their mouth again possibly, but anyways.... Fun idea to have absolutely anyone have a chance at this item, but what chaos, what horror. Why did I have to need 2 of these things! Is a nice change of pace for sure, but I can assure you I won't touch those zones with a ten foot pole once I hit my goal. Was thinking 6 rings, but now thinking, how about having a life instead, lol :)

    Haha, people are having a short fuse in the zones. Me included. Not a lot of patience left after a dozen hours camping the same mobs and someone pulls it. I see it and think I'm gonna jump through the screen and strangle them if they say in dropped. LMAO!

    On another note, I'm fading a bit here, but am catching myself trying to use the keyboard to look around for mobs, making hand motions like I'm using my at home mouse with more buttons, keep having visions of more little bug corpses to loot..... Yep, I been doing this camp a little too much.....
  12. Edrick Augur

    No, please - no instances. There are many more negatives there than positives.
  13. Laronk Augur

    Like what kinda negative can you think of? People not argueing with each other, no stupid trains? People not holding down some of the item camps/aug camps for the three weeks (breastplate clicky we're looking at you!)

    40 people works perfectly in MM.

    That's roughly 7 groups.
    Entrance, GY, Bloodwolves, Garden, Grathon, Noble, Kitchen .... 7 camps, all having the same chance from trash to drop the crested ring.

    Oh and I am leaving out some other camps too. Probably could entertain 54 people

    No....
    Just no.
  15. FVRules Journeyman

    I just hope that once people got the augs and clickies they want from MM they give someone else a chance. Only been a few days but a concern.
  16. Risiko Augur

    As much complaining as people are doing, one thing is for sure. People will remember this event, and that's what this should be doing... creating memories. How many things have you seen in the past five years of EQ that you were like "man do you remember the time that.... "?

    Good job Devs.

    Risiko is exactly right. Gameplay is a psychological experience. The attachment that people get to the adventuring combined with the attachment that is gained from the world itself (lore) will not only keep people playing it will keep the player base growing.

    When's the last time you told your friends that you went to a Mc Donalds? There has to be a way for you to make your game so players want to tell their friends about it. The way you do it is by creating a memorable experience.

    Sad thing is this was supposed to encourage grouping. Instead greed as taken over due to these items.
  19. Kurayami Augur



    What would be really bomb is if there was a quest, kill 1000 mobs in solb for a cloak reward, or kill 1000 in MM for a ring reward. People would sure group more then!

  20. EQbud Augur

    or even 100 of each mob type, then people would rotate camps.
    Kill 100 Bats.
    Kill 100 Fire giants.
    Kill 100 Kobolds.
    Kill 100 Fire Elementals & Imps.
    Kill 100 Spiders.
