    Anyone else notice the drop rate on the keys has become way reduced?

    Granted a week ago I thought it was too easy but today I am getting one part every 3 or so hours at best it seems

    I think they need to check drop rates on travesty keys and grizzle notes also. I killed the travesty key rooms 15 times without getting 1 key. I did bedlam and killed every named monster down there for over 1 hour(I killed each one at least 4 times) and never saw 1 thesis note. Has anyone else on Atlantic has an issue with these peerless?

    They should make the drop-rate a flat 50%/kill and let the keys last a week just like the exodus keys do. so you don't have to farm keys and do the peerless when you're done.
    (you'd beable to save the keys for a couple days until you feel like fighting the peerless).

    I just spoke to two other players in the dungeon who each state they have been there for 2 hours and did not get a single key. So between 3 players you have 7 hours played and I got an alter. If that is the drop rate it will just be another "feature" of the game I will not be worrying about doing.

    In the patch notes they put out yesterday, under bug fixes, it says.....
    • Adjusted Combat Path key drop rate
    Hope that helps!

    The low level mobs were reduced by the greatest margin, while the high level mobs were tweaked a little bit. In application the champion (and exodus equivalent) are 1 in 4. The other Mobs scale down from there.

    Keys are easy to get. The part everyone is gonna hate is how Exodus moves at paragon speed/retargets people. Gonna be griefer paradise down there............ I can only imagine a high pop server.

    On a different note why can't other peerless get a refresher (new items,new loot). It's only been what 7 years since ML bosses have been introduced and never really changed after that

    On Dupre's Side you've got Squires, Knights, and Champions while Exodus has Drones, Sentinels and Juggernauts.

    I just got to reading about the new Exodus stuff. I went and seen the Arch Zealo,t but I do not understand how I get into the dungeon. I am on my thief and I was going to go in with him to try stealing. Even the about stratics guide doesnt say how to get into the dungeon. Any help is appreciated.. thanks

    Exodus dungeon is in the same place it has always been. Go south from the desert where the Zealot is, then west between the lava lakes until you come to a large structure. Go into the lower level of the structure (through an open portal, NOT the stairs) and stand on the void area in the middle of the floor. You will then be transported down to the dungeon. Look out for all the demons and other spawn that surrounds the entrance though.

    There are 8 small entrances around the base of the black pyramid. On some shards - some or all of the entrances are blocked by energy fields. Often - the fields on the west side are open if they are all not open. If none of the 8 are open - then there are puzzles that you will have to do - these are on the 4 pedestals at the corners of the pyramid. Once you get into the lower level - stand in the void in the center of the floor to get inside.
