    Or at least stop selling the freaking treats.

    They are effecting SEVERAL PvP fights when there are harrowers or champ spawns with hell hounds.

    They don't need to be turned off, just limited to where they can be spawned.

    If they are being used to grief, this is a bad thing(tm).

    However, whining about it at every opportunity is what's getting old. Especially when the whining is aimed at the EMs who have ZERO ABILITY TO AFFECT CHANGE in the matter.

    Not sure if I would agree that they have been "overlooked". Treats were sold and some people bought a truck load. I would put them in the same category as the yellow crystallized essence. And while these are likely in much less abundance than the Hellhound treats, I'd say that they fall into the same category.

    That being said, perhaps some thought might go into limiting where they can work - i.e. non-champ spawn areas? But then again... if they did that with the Harbinger it wouldn't be fun to drop one in Luna now and again would it?

    I think ancient hell hounds are fun. Seriously. If you don't like them, try camping another spawn. It's not like Rat spawn is the only one -or is it?

    I would say the possibly the best thing was if the same rule applied to hell hounds in champspawns for treats as for taming. You can't tame champspawn

    what I mean by overlooked is that hell hound treats are still purchasable all day every day in umbra. Since last Halloween.

    I've never actually fed one, but am I wrong in thinking these are the same 'tasty treats' that spawn in treasure maps and can be fed to pets? I thought that's what was fed to them?

    These are "Hell-Hound" treats and are only sold on a vendor at the Umbra Moongate. They are not the same as the "Tasty Treats".

    Your poor PvP character can't deal with Ancient Hell Hounds?

    Tragic, deal with it.

    Let me guess.... You play Legends? And your one of the griefers that use this tactic to shut down a spawn by turning 20-50 hell hounds into 20-50 ancient hell hounds? Im sorry but I have yet to see a player let alone 5 that can take out 20+ ancient hell hounds no matter how good they are. Especially when players like you just make more.

    Tragic? Yes because your shard now suffers from the lack of any pvp action in any spawn location because of players with your mindset!

    There are many other spawns to do with scrolls and far better rewards.

    Wrong... I play on Atlantic.... nice try though.

    Nah, I find it amusing that there are PvPers that believe that the power scrolls should stay in fel only because THEY are the risk in the risk/reward, yet when there are mobs that they can't handle (but a PVM char can) they start crying.

    It only matters in despise, and if a harrower pops in hythloth. otherwise they are great fun. If popped in despise, they force you to pvp at other spawns.
     
  17. Its a chicken s*** way to get out of a fight, if you ask me.

    The only people who use them are those who are too scared to fight or dont have the "numbers" at the point and time.

    Turn it off.. make people actually fight again instead of letting hellhounds fight for them.

    I'm better than you and anyone else in MSI 100% guaranteed.

    When there is a harrower up in hythloth and there are 30-40 ancient hellhounds that end up killing every guild that is there, that is an issue. Please let the people who actually know how to play the game talk.
