    I'm one of those people who haven't gotten a key. I haven't seen the actual Abyss yet.

    My solution, though, is to make him a lot harder, like at least Baracoon-level or more. More people will get looting rights; it'll be a lot more fun; and he'll finally match his artifact in power.

    The ease of killing him has the strong feel of a bug. If so it should be top priority to fix.

    And if it was intended this way, they need to slap themselves for making a stupid decision, and then change it. (And it should be top priority.)

    Can't get much more crucial than access to the main reason content of the expansion!

    The yellow key appears in your pack. Double click it.

    He drops a good artifact robe and is easy to kill. That is why he is being farmed relentlessly.

    Solution that would be perfect, and I've posted it before:


    1. Significant increase in difficulty
    2. Everyone that gets looting rights gets robe and key
    3. Robe and key can only be earned once

    Fine except for #3. Number three will reward those who have been camping him since the start.

    *UPDATE*

    After 25 minutes, he finally respawned - and for some ******** reason, i didn't get looting rights, even thought i was hammering him with spells.

    wow, ea. wow.

    Guildie of mine fought him 6 times, got two robes and only after that he got the key. Which was certainly odd.

    And limiting it to one robe per char would be ok, too, no? You can still get some this way since it´s not hard to get to it and not hard to kill either. 2 or 3 x-pots I recon.

    Ya I suggested when I was in the room he spawn in random spots, of course within that one room.

    I got my robe on second try (first try he spawned and died so fast I didn't even realize he had spawned), and got a key on my 4th try. I just kept two EV's out and pre-cast Flame Strike near the 15 min mark. Of course I never got my FS off, but it seemed like a good idea.

    If you get the robe before you know about the quest (like me), can you no longer do the quest? I tried to get the blue key by double clicking it from hidden room and it said "I had no reason to pick it up" or something like that? What do the keys do...?

    Yes, this is unacceptable.

    Two nights in a row trying and I still cannot access the Abyss.

    Please fix it yesterday.

    Try it on a melee character in the middle of 5+ EVs cast by people who seem to have the uncanny knack of running in moments before it pops and plopping their EVs right where it spawns.

    I luckily got one the second spawn... but it was more frustrating than fun to deal with.

    I used a melee char and it took literally hours to get it.

    If your sole purpose and intent in any action is to continually upset, aggravate, or otherwise annoy another player, you may be a "grief player." Using game mechanics to cause grief to others can also be seen as exploitation, and will be treated accordingly by game staff.

    You might get away with this if enough people paged under Phy Harassment.
    We don't know what there intent is until a GM asks them.

    The problem isn't direct griefing... it's indirect because of the rush to corner the market on the new cloaks.

    It will die down in time, but for now it is quite frustrating for people trying to get through the Abyss WITHOUT having to buy a rune from someone else.

    That is why I said they might get away with it if enough players page. It may not help but until people try they will never know.

    Draconi has already acknowledged the key drop bug and said he was going to buff the creature involved... so we'll see how it goes.
