    Please god fix Tyball, hopefully with the way I posted, but even just a difficulty increase would still be ok.

    Don't know what you suggested but difficulty needs to go up and respawn timer needs to go down.

    I hope they don't revert anything. Been working imbuing the past hour....

    I suggested difficulty increase and everyone that gets looting rights get key and robe.

    Nope. Robe should be given to everyone to stop the constant farming.

    Gonna guess that this publish is strictly a fix for the crash caused by the quest identified earlier.

    Ya, shards go down for that. I bet they will just fix the problem in code then delete the houses instead of revert.

    lol.

    my question is -- who would *want* to live in the middle of a champ spawn?

    This did happen, but we handled it earlier without a publish. The emergency publish is for serious stability issues. As such, it won't have a fix for Tyball yet (though this is scheduled for the next official publish)

    Tyball is the red NPC who's so easy a fight that the last Abyss key is almost impossible to get, right?

    I'm glad fixing him is on the agenda, but be aware....Next Publish is likely effectively "too late" at least for anyone who can't cast an Energy Vortex.

    Unless I can solve the Tomb of Kings puzzle....I, for one, am never going to see the Abyss until he at least lasts long enough for a warrior to target him.

    Kinda inclined to agree...I did get my shroud and my key, so I'm not as annoyed about this as some others, but by Monday, changes to Tyball won't matter much -- everyone will have their shroud and their key by then.

    They need, I would argue, to prioritize this fix. I cannot possibly be the only one who is 100% prevented from getting into the new dungeon because of this. I can't possibly literally be the only one with this issue.

    Here is a fix they could do right now. Place a GM there that can boot people out of the area after they get the key/robe or let a Dev do it on a GOD Char.

    I have tried the last two nights.

    I am not going to waste my time idling in that room with a bunch of barely literate nincompoops only to not be able to acquire the key.

    You can't really page on someone for PvMing.

    Hell, I'd farm it too.

    But anything that's worth farming like that should be a lot harder to kill, and making it harder to kill would fix a lot of problems and make it a lot more fun.

    I don't see why it can't be tinkered with quickly...Kind of like what the Event Moderators can do to modify critters for their events.

    Hell, cheap out and make it a polymorphed Paragon Devourer of Souls or something. Make it Nieara the Necromancer.

    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.

    I had to laugh out loud a moment ago.
    After all the hassels of today and Europa being down all day, we finally get in about 2 hours ago'ish.
    Only to see the shard go down for regular maintenance :thumbup:
