    The following two changes make a huge difference to your TLP community, and hopefully it will bring some of the lost players back to Agnarr.

    After work yesterday, I took my necro over to Lake of Ill Omen to see how the changes were working out. Of course, there was a 6 mage box army sitting on the regular Chancellor spawn point.

    I ended up just picking a spot in the fort where I could cover about 5 spawn points, and left the stage to the mage box army.

    I ended up spawning the Chancellor a total of 3 times with 4 prod drops with in 45 minutes of showing up there. I gave 2 of the prods away to random strangers that said they were looking for it, banked one for my brother, and kept one for myself.

    After that, I headed over to Kaesora to see how bad it would be there. To my surprise, there was a raid group setup on Xalgoz's spawn point. They were putting anybody in the raid that wanted in, and keeping a list of who got the drop next. It took me about 3 hours to get my drop, but it was amazing how civil everybody was there.

    It was kind of funny that a couple times we had people show up for Xalgoz that thought they could out dps the raid force. They lost both times, and each asked to join the raid afterwords lol.

    All and all, it took a grand total of 1 evening playing and ZERO Kronos paid to farmers to get my key to Howling Stones. It was amazing. I made some new friends, and it felt very rewarding to get it all done with out paying anyone for any of it.

    I would like to point out that the raid force at Xalgoz was made up of a lot of different guilds including some guilds that are often times depicted in a bad light on these forums. Remember guys and gals, despite what the trolls on these forums would like you to believe, not all people are bad people.

    Well written post, I agree. +1

    I also found the Xalgoz raid system very good. About 2.5 hours there for the drop, people were friendly and patient. It's funny that this is now the bottleneck in the quest, but it's a very doable quest overall.

    Thanks DBG for making it fun and accessible!

    This is what we did on Ragefire pretty much from day 1 when TL was monopolizing all the pieces. Sometimes just a couple of groups, sometimes more than that. But we held a list. Just like the old days (1999) in Highpass and High Keep!

    Glad it worked for you. And glad the prod can drop in more places making it harder to monopolize.

    Oh I remember the waiting lists in High Hold Keep down in the basement. Brings back memories.

    Don't be mad Daybreak fixed a problem that you helped perpetuate. There are a lot of things to be mad at daybreak about. This patch is definitely not one of them.

    You should have known this was going to happen eventually.

    Only have yourself to blame for that one. People like you are the ones that feed the beast.

    Comments like this excuse and promote deceptive behavior. Odd that you are in favor of DBG's actions which encouraged people to buy the items with Kronos, and blame the people who bought the kronos (two posts earlier):

    All it takes is enough people voting with their wallet and nearly anything can be changed, regardless of what has been previously stated.
    I personally know over a dozen people that quit over the BS before DBG fixed the issue. Maybe a few will come back, most probably will not.
