    ... I've gone around the gauntlet 4 times now solo, honoring almost all foes and still haven't got an artifact drop. Also, isn't there supposed to be Mondain's Legacy items mixed in with the loot or has that changed? Maybe honor is broke luck wise, achieving perfection is suppose to give 1000 luck plus I got Conjurer's Garb and Soles of Providence on. Also 40 luck on one of my weapons so I'm usually atleast at 1220 luck on most kills. Any insight would be appreciated!!

    Think they changed the drop system it a while back to where the more you actually fought there you became eligible for drops. Kind of like a cumulative type deal.

    Well I'm up to 9 solo Gauntlet runs now with no artifact drop. I'm logged out in there for the day. No one has said anything about Mondains Legacy items as part of the loot on the corpses. I thought fore sure I read or heard awhile back that they added Mondains items to the loot tables. Was that in fact in place and they took it out, or am I dreaming all that up?....

    I don't remember those being added. I remember people asking for them.

    The only think I have ever looted off of a doom room monster is set armor pieces.

    Unlike peerless boses an such which u could potentialy try forever an not get a drop or so it seems-Doom is supposed to keep track of your kills and increase your odds of a drop each kill untill u get one.Basically if u keep fighting u will get a drop eventually.But it has always seemed to me that if u leave doom it restarts the count so if u do a round and get nothing and leave its like u wasted the round might as well stay and keep killing untill u get your drop before leaving.That's why i log out there if i didnt get a drop so i can resume right where i left off.I know it sucks cuz each solo round of doom takes forever so u ready to be done after a round but sometimes it takes a few rounds in a row to get a drop sometimes u get it first room theres still an rng it just supposedly increases your odds each kill.i prefer going in a 2-4 person group and just stay untill everyone gets a drop ;) might take several rounds but everyone will get one and they goo ever so much faster u ever need a groupie on europa just holler in chat im always down for some doom action :)

    I consider it broken because a dungeon that once requiered a group is now a single player dungeon. After a long break i tried doom again and even with lots of SDI, having the critter discorded and a slayer spellbook i don't even get looting rights. What the point in screwing over every single class besides the bushido gimps? No pets here, no pets there, can't provoke this, can't provoke that but a busido dexer can solo the most toughest critters .. where the F is the point in that?

    I don't think it was planned out or anything. People will always find the best possible combos, often ones the developers did not think of. Anyway, a bard tamer can solo doom with no problem.

    Times change and it's not every single class but just the one you are running though I find it hard to believe that one couldn't change a temp to some degree and see gains. What is this class and what do you have on your suit? Lots of SDI is a relative subject, a mage I have has some where a old peace-necro was near 80+ I think.

    oh wait they didnt like doom artifacts ...... they said no more overpowered aftifacts lol who remembers that, guess they dont want people to play...... wait lets make someone do 700 cure potions (waste the whole summer)so they can get a sweet pvp item but we are only going to give 2 out on each shard so those 2 people can fight each other

    This is how the system is "supposed" to work... but there's no way to tell how many "points" you have accumulated so there's no real way to know if it works or not.

    Based on my experiences with doom (within the last year) it always takes forever to get your first artifact, and after that you seem to get them every other round...
