    You can get a thousand weapon essences in less than a week? You must never sleep.

    It's about 20 per solo run of 12 zones, this can be done every 90 minutes.

    If you get a steady 20 per run, that's 50 solo runs to get 1000 essences. If you also do the clicky quests each day that's probably only say 40 solo runs in the week. That's 5.7 per day, let's say 6 per day accounting for bad luck. I can do a full set of solos in about 40 minutes. That's 4 hours per day grinding solos, but obviously having to organise your day to do them every 90 minutes. I've also got 3 weapons. And none of them are level 10 yet, so I'm already behind with this.

    I dunno, I've got a job. And kids. And I raid half the time I'm playing for some reason, probably subliminal self loathing or something.

    It is doable, and during the limited spell researcher drops, it's more realistic, but still 1000 in a week I'd be slitting my wrists. And I need way more than 1000.

    When was the last time you "played" Everquest 2 ? Its only grinding, grinding, grinding at this point.

    I am not sure anyone answered Almee's question. Will there be solo play for those of us who are casual players or prefer to enjoy to game alone?

    It appears they dont want to respond to the questions about soloing. Apparently there is no provision for that!

    In Roosha, we don't play EQ2...EQ2 plays us.

    Sadly, GU115 won't do me a bit of good. No 120s (except TS) - mostly 80s-95. Not geared to raid, nor do I want to. Don't like to be forced into Heroics in order to get spells or recipe books, either. If I'm LUCKY, I'll get a recipe book from Overseers, but snowball's chance in Sol Ro of getting spells.

    Adorn slots are correct, dreamweaver posted the wrong picture.

    Hey look on the bright side, finally a BoL weapon with better damage than a CD one.

    Just another expac for the raiders and the casual players are shafted yet again and I know of several CASUAL players that got the life membership talk about the devs ripping off casual players

    Generic effects again, seriously when was the last time people got excited seeing effects on a new weapon? The tags of fabled/mythical meant something a long time ago where getting them was not easy and when you did, you would cherish them for a bit before finding an upgrade. All we see now is a resolve upgrade with a 5% boost in stats and effects that either give you more stats or a debuff. No new ideas circulate during the development brainstorming session it seems.

    I personally have stopped upgrading weapons now because just when you think you have found a decent weapon you find something better and the process starts again. This is an incredibly shallow mechanic in my view to pad the content with needless extra grinding in a game where pretty much everything has grinding of some sort.

    They should really allow you to salvage the weapon to get at least 75% of essences. You never truly get attached to any one weapon and that is a shame. The solo/group grind becomes so tedious that the only way for most of us to keep on doing them is to dangle I'd rather prefer the option to have one weapon through a signature line that becomes best in slot for the expansion that you can upgrade slowly.

    I hate to be a downer but lately they bugs in the raid zones is so crazy bad are any of these raid zones going to work? I mean you didn't even fix the ones we are playing in now and you are bringing out new stuff really.

    Historically the Game Updates are always high level content. Usually they include some Advanced solos as well, but that doesn't seem to be the case this year. To be honest, I was surprised to get a content update since they said earlier in the year they were more focused on fixing lag. I haven't really seen much evidence of that, but I can only hope it is happening in the background.

    Glad you've tweaked the mushroom in Fordel challenge, we did that one Sunday. Lost 3 raid members to seizures, another 2 to blindness, and 4 graphics cards melted.

    why don't you have something like the battlegrounds for heroic or raid. you would enter the pool and then made into teams,groups whatever. i have the lifetime membership but i play solo for the most part and from what i see in chat that is the same for most of your customers.

    (Sigh). Granted, none of my characters is anywhere close to 120. But.. I know there have been misspellings in the past.
    The word "effect" popped up like fireworks in this update. I have no idea, since I don't play high end zones, whether at least some of those "effect" words should have been "affect" instead. My flimsy little mage may come up with a few surprises to her detriment. A note of word usage intention would be appreciated.
