    Has there been any word on when this is going to happen? I'm tired of lizardmen dropping better loot than Scalis.

    One would think it would be fairly easy to apply the loot table (artis aside) from Cora to all the peerless class and champ spawn bosses.... I mean the table is aready there so it should be all new work...

    It would be nice to see it rolled out across the board.

    Pretty sure it was stated that it is how it is for now. No plans to redo it.

    I know you're joking, but I'm pretty sure Scalis' artifacts are better than anything a lizardman can drop, paragon, revamp, or otherwise. I'd **** a brick if a lizardman dropped a 3/1 15 DCI bracelet.

    Either way, it would be nice to see the system deployed universally. Seems like the community accepts the revamp loot by now.

    Go to Wrong you might find a Lizardman drop with 1/4 and you can add DCI 15, or maybe even a DCI 20. Please record the brick sharting I haven't seen one in game yet, only heard of such events. ;)

    The trouble with universal deployment, is where the heck would you get slayer instruments? Either my luck is awful or my memory flawed, but I don't recall getting any musical instruments off creatures with the new loot drops.

    That's fine. But I didn't have a bard when they were dropping as loot, and they're not available any more. What do newer bards do?

    Don't worry Petra, soon all mobs will be immune to all bard effects because they obviously make said mobs too easy... thus there will be no need for instruments to drop as loot.

    Buy them like the rest of us. I've bought 6 or 7 sets over the years.

    Such a cynical attitude? This is because bards need to take a support role at Exodus? Though they are exellent for obtaining the keys? I have 2 scrolls and a Dupre's Sword that I gained using my bard at Exodus - from running 'inspire' to support the group.

    Exodus was not the first mob to be immune, nor will he be the last.

    I'm not talking about the artifacts he poorly drops, but rather the nearly 80 items he drops on his corpse. Of the 50+ I've killed, I've only gotten 2 artifacts. Knowing the rest of the loot on his corpse is nearly pointless to go through makes for a pretty disappointing experience.

    But for fun, I have bagged up every single item on his body and brought it to my imbuer to unravel (I did this to maybe 10 or so of the fights). I've gotten as few as 2 relic frags...and as much as 7. Woo.


    Hey, you know who's fun to fight? Exodus. Even if you don't get an artifact drop, you get to nose through high level major and legendary artifacts because he carries what a boss should carry. Hell, I've even gotten item set pieces from him.

    I just want a bosses' loot to match them.

    Since I've been farming Cora I come back after every third one to unravel the loot and I get about 45-70 relics per round. That said I've never got anything that was worth keeping but some amazing cursed, brittle stuff.

    Touche. After all, Scalis' bracelet is 255/255.

    I would like to see the new loot system in all of Ilshenar and/or Tokuno. I think this would revitalize these lands. I do like the standard loot in some areas. Things like a FC1 ring or brace with nothing else just don't spawn in the new system.
