    Yeah, funny, the "interesting twist" in the mage version seems to be "do it how it was supposed to be done in the first place".

    And an update re:Test server. It doesn't work. At least for mages.

    I was able to do it on my Live mage. (I had originally thought you needed 2.0 to do it, so I didn't try on my Live mage, but you only need 1.5 done (and both ornament achs)). I then repeated the exact steps on Test, used the same spells in case my test DPS was breaking something. Exact order of turn-ins with the elementals. Even let Squallmane toss me around a little, even though my Test mage can beat him to the top of the hill. Event played out exactly the same but I got the success emote on Live, and not on Test.

    Quite a few of them were basically "do it how you are supposed to but don't screw it up at all because we won't forgive you this time". E.g. Bard, Druid, Mage...

    Sorry to hear it's not working on Test though... that's pretty lame.

    The reward. I rather enjoy the Monk epic request event.

    Any chanter that doesn't have the seal on them won't get the prompt from that ghost needed to know what to do.

    Ahhh, I was getting that message, but didn't get what seal it was talking about. Now to go find it in my bank or house, because I'm pretty sure I wasn't carrying it.

    Edit: Yeah it was in my house.

    Paladin one at least has a particle effect, but it is reminiscent of when they nerfed the particles on 2.0 not long after it came out. The particles are very minimal (small flame, mostly near the hilt . . . similar in color to the blade).
  9. Raptour_MT Elder

    The ranger ornament is pretty bland, it could definitely use some particles or something.
  10. eqnewb New Member

    please make non-lore. There's no reason to make them lore, and every reason to make players happy with removing the restriction.

    Necro retelling ornament looks like a fossilized Xenomorph (Alien movie). It could use a particle effect where it is spewing out green poison or red blood.

    Dzarn? Prathun? What'd you guys think?
  12. JPete Lorekeeper

    Monk one looks a tad on the bland side, but I can't even figure out how to complete it.

    Where are you spoilers for all of us idiots that can't figure things out on our own? :(
  13. Riou Augur


    When you get the option to pick a story side at the end, don't, sit there for like 5 minutes until they despawn and new npc's spawn, talk to those.
  14. Xianzu_Monk_Tunare Augur


    This, I'd actually done it way back when they first added An Epic Request, but I forgot about it for this, lol.
  15. EnchFWO Augur

    Totally didn't realize this till you said it but 110% true... yeah, there should be "acid" or blood dripping from the top.

    I still stand by my opinion that the majority are inferior to the previous ornaments. Then again, I suppose they aren't supposed to be "epics" but just a bonus leading into the next arc (tradeskill madness).
  16. Vilem New Member

    Has anyone figured out what to do for the Paladin Epic Retelling, I've done it a few times perfectly to the script but feel I'm missing something.
  17. Zenyan Journeyman

    Pay attention when you're in the ballroom (is it a ballroom? The part with the dancing vampires and piano.) There is something they want you to do with the mini maestro hands.

    Edit: If you kill them too quickly, you might miss it.
  18. EnchFWO Augur

    Cast stun on the Left Hand and Other Left Hand that are playing the piano. It will slowly drain off the health of the two vampires you have to fight. I don't know if you need to just do it once or a bunch. I just kept doing it a bunch till I figured I drained the vampire's HP enough before just killing them off. I also fought The Third in the pit of water at the final battle because at that point... idunno... seemed like something different to try. Like mentioned above, I'm fairly certain it's the piano hands though.
  19. Vilem New Member

    Yeah, I've stunned them til the mobs changed form, and still got nothing. I've done it 4 times now and haven't gotten the ornament in the preview reward after doing the event.
  20. Rakayn New Member

    I just went and got my Beastlord weapon ornament, The Warder, last night and was very disappointed to see that it is lore :( there is even a different particle effect for main hand / off-hand.

    I think everyone would be a lot happier if these new weapons were not lore, especially the dual wielding classes.
