    I would like to see more even competition for the Ruined Paintaing then trying to compete with three scripters, hiding there until the damm thing spawns. (Changing the spawn to anywhere in a 4 month period instead of within 2 weeks of 4 months would please me also).

    There is also one particular irritating archer that logs off next to Nix, who likes come out and let you solo the whole damm monster and throws a few arrows on occasion. If you log out in doom, when you log in, you should find youself right outside the entrance.

    So anywhere in a 4 month period could be like 24 hours - 4 months? Um - - - NO!!!

    :loser: It costs you a gold skull to get into to Doom, I I chose to log there and not have to spen a skull to get back in MY choice - get over it.. If the archer is there stop killing it let him die or leave and start up again.

    Devs dont even bother wasting brain power on these ideas.

    A better solution would be to randomize the spawn location of the painting along the doom walls. There is far more to doom than just a stealable. To affect everyone's ability to take a break from killing DF and come back to it later without needing to get another skull all for the sake of an item that appears only 3 times a year is not a good solution.

    I like the idea of randomizing the location of the painting. Not in a room but anywhere along the walls outside the rooms.
    As to logging out, I don't think it should kick you all the way out of doom. But kicking you outside the rooms or to the gate or randomly along the hall or something would be fine. That would prevent people from just staying in one spot and logging in to just "check". But would not make you waste a skull if you wanted to stay on that side.
    Nothing you can do about people not helping. Rude people are everywhere. No reason to make others pay for the few bad apples.

    It is a small matter but should be addressed - The most rare item in the game should not be so easily grabbed by people not even sitting at their computers.

    You should have to spend a skull to get in there. It should be a pain in the ass. It should be challenging and the rewards should be satisfying (Doom needs an upgrade there). Everything in this game should not be catered to the lazy... Maybe it would be easier to skip the golden skull, skip the fighting, and have just drop in your pack when you log in.

    Maybe a better idea would be to make all the Doom monsters 95% resists across the board, have tainted life (Goodbye Sampires), and quadrouple all the Hit Points...maybe have that teleport you in beauty(Goodbye Tamers)....But your inputs into this were appreciated.

    I could be wrong here. but I was under the impression that only the original dungeons were being revamped?

    I don't care about some dumb painting.

    But not letting us log in the gaunlet would be irritating.

    They need to redo the mini bosses and then upgrade DF.

    Also add Gauntlet 2.0 where you get key from DF to kill Exodus or something (lets reuse that Monster mondel!!!!!)
