    What new arties have people gotten from the new spawns so far?

    I just got this from the Abyssal spawn. Drops in your pack when champ dies, but I don't remember if there was a message or not.

    Specials are Armour Ignore and Para. Should be a AI machine with all that mana leech. Pity I have no Garg to use it with.

    it was listed in the PUB60 notes, all the stats for arties and what the new stats do, fatigue and drain mana lower the targets stats. Sneaky, I love you, that was the weapon I wanted most, let me know when you find the Sign of Chaos and Berzerkers chest peice!

    I liked it also till I saw the speed on it - 3.75s for 15-17 damage. It's the gargoyles version of a viking sword and they're used so much. (I wish they were more viable) 20 SSI doesn't help.

    Dread Sword being 3.5s and Stone War Sword being 3.75s with not so great damage make the things worthless to me :(. However, I think they did a pretty good job on their appearances.

    That abyssal blade looks pretty good, but a bit slow.
    Hit fatigue would drain their stamina I'd think.
    I wonder how it would do in pvp.

    if they make garg earings medable or make it so you can convert gargoyle artifacts... this might be the best shield.

    Hey wait....The new Fel champ spawns are dropping artifacts other than Replicas and deco items?

    That sounds like a bug....My impression was that the Fel champ spawn rewards were decorative artifacts, Replicas, and scrolls. And the Trammel monster rewards were Imbuing components and "regular" artifacts.

    The 2 Abyss champs also have a chance of dropping 2 new artifacts (non replica).

    Thank you for the clarification.

    Based upon what I've seen so far you've definitely skewed the rewards in favor of the Felucca rules champs, in terms of quality. At least two of the Trammel-side artifacts have negative mods. (One weapon artifact has negative "Damage Increase," and another has negative Defense Chance Increase.) And that Sign of Chaos shield is already a hard sell, a mere one week after the expansion.

    That Abyssal Blade, by contrast, is drool-worthy.

    Your boss may consider Trammel players to be "care bears," but I would urge that all of you please do remember that we're the bulk of the player base, and that the Replicas available from the new Felucca champs are quite powerful. Doesn't one of them even use an equipment slot that doesn't normally have mods, thus earning it a place with the "gold standard" Replicas? I'd argue the rewards were substantial without the introduction of non-Replica artifacts.

    Don't forget about all the new deco stuff that's also apparently coming from those spawns as well, Galen. Already seen people asking tens of millions per piece for them.

    At least 30-40 seperate items (probably many more than that), all parts of the decor of the areas that may come unlocked as the spawns progress. Not sure if that stuff resets or not, though..

    Wow, that's quite different. I suppose you could be sporting a +70 DI suite, then you'd still have a +30.

    Actually the standard of chaos is freaking insanely fun.

    The 40% damage penalty doesnt affect dexers that much unless you dont have tactics and in combination with high dex and swing speed, you're going to you do have 3 separate rolls to proc a spell and a chance that all 3 spells will fire at once.
    Considering lighting does about 80% of the same damage as weapon, harm will hit for about 30% of weapon damage and fireball will hit for about 60% of weapon damage the cumulative amount of damage you can potentially do is 170% - 40% which would still be 130% bonus damage without using a special.

    30% chance to do 90% damage on a hit
    20% chance to do 120% damage on a hit
    10% chance to do 140% damage on a hit

    And whoever wants to do the math for 2 at once and 3 at once
    your chacne to do 150% damage when Fire and Harm go off
    your chance to do 170% damage when lightning and harm go off
    your chance to do 200% when Fire and Lightning go off
    your % chance to do 230 % damage on a hit when all 3 fire

    This is of course assuming the target has all the same resists.



    Yeh that 40% Damage penalty is a REAL deal breaker, may as well just put that on your vendor for 5k.

    Hang on. With this expansion Tram players have gotten three whole new land masses (Underworld, Stygian Abyss and Ter Mer) full of new unique arties. In comparison, Fel players have gotten two relatively small spawn areas with a couple of unique rewards.

    You are right, the Fel rewards are quite powerful and rightfully so I might add. However some of the Tram rewards are just as nice and potentually more powerful (depending on the application).

    How you come to the conclusion that the rewards are somehow 'skewed' towards Felucans I don't know. There are so many more Tram rewards and so much more Tram content in SA that it is not funny! The reason that a couple of the Tram arties have negative mods is obviously because they would be way to overpowered without it.

    I would urge you to remember that there is a large and signifigant number of players that are more inclined towards the Feluccan playstyle (despite the poor treatment we have recived since Ren). We should not, and will not be forgotten about. I thank Mythic for remembering us.
