    I just did a few spawns with my guild. Our protector received 6 scrolls each one, but we only received 3-4 a spawn. We even had ONE person kill Rikktor & Baracoon and he only received 4. Is this intended?

    How many sot's were received? my uneducated guess would be that would account for missing scrolls.

    But that's not in the patch notes from what I saw. Unless I overlooked it.

    He's most likely a Follower of Justice. If he's knight of justice then have everyone drop protection and relog. That should fix it.

    It's not intended. I have just tested this and am unable to reproduce it. Any more details you can share?

    Just happened 3 more times.

    Will be doing another within the next few minutes if you wish to log on and watch if you are able.

    We have one player protecting, one player hitting, and one character discording. Our discorder does not have meditation or eval so he don't do nothing but stand there. We even protected the discorder just to double check.

    Also rikktor is now teleporting. :X

    The protector is getting 6.

    He is a knight.

    The person KILLING the champ is only getting 3-4. No other single person is hitting the champ.

    Doing things the same way as we have been for years.

    What class did you use to kill Rikktor :p?

    I haven't had a chance to test it... but maybe it has to be done with one person, without insta kill? and who knows.. maybe SOT really does conflict with the scrolls (say if the killer got 2-3 SoT scrolls)

    Are any replicas dropping? Possibly in place of scrolls. Always depends on whether they are counting the possibility of replicas as placeholders for scrolls and the max number of 6 is forcing the numbers you are seeing. Of course one can only guess as to coding that isn't in front of you.

    You using a pet or melee to kill the boss'?

    Just did another baracoon. This time with two players hitting it. I received 2 scrolls, the other player 3 scrolls. Protector once again had 6 scrolls. No pets used, no deaths, nothing our of the normal.

    We killed rikktor with an archer one. Then again with with just a dexer.

    One oak leaf. 2 Krysses. One slime statue thing.

    We're still missing scrolls even on the spawns we get no other special reward.

    The new pink scrolls don't show any link to the amout of scrolls missing. We had 8 of them this last spawn.

    What happens is the people that worked the spawn even if they do not hit the Champion will get atleast one scroll, I guess it has to do with the replica system overlapping with the powerscroll drop and messing it up.

    This just happened to us. We had about 5 people hitting the Barracoon, only 5 scrolls.

    If you could also let me know how many SoTs and 105s you got during the spawn vs how many scrolls the attackers got, that would be appreciated.

    Regine, I have spent over 3 hours total in Destard Fel working the Reptile spawns up too the 3rd level and then leaving. In total, I have received 5 105 scrolls and 0 SoT's.

    Doing the Ilshenar champs, I have completed 5-6 of them total and have received 0 SoT's.

    Before the publish, I could go to Destard and in the time it takes for a necro mage to work the spawn to level 3 solo, I would almost always have 5-8 105 scrolls.

    Also, my guild did 3 champs in Fel yesterday and they reported getting all the protector scrolls but coming up 1-2 short on the scrolls for killing the champ each time.

    This also happened to us, and even chars that did not kill the champ/protect and just killed the normal spawn were getting power scrolls, even 115s and 120s.

    There was a screw up when they implemented replicas. Now, when you work a spawn you have a chance to get a scroll no matter what even if you do not attack the champ. A friend of mine worked despise all the way until right before fourth, was raided and lost the spawn. He stayed in the dungeon trying to fight them off, but they killed the baracoon and he had not done any damage to it. He still received a 20 fencing.

    Yup.

    We had a player there not even attacking the champion receiving the scroll.

    It's a error tied into working the spawn.

    They owe me like 30 120 magerys probably! hah.

    We just finished a spawn. There were 6 people hitting the champion and one protector (me). Five people ended up with scrolls, one person got two, and I got all 6 protection scrolls. The person who did not get a scroll did get looting rights, so they should have gotten one.

    i think it should stay this way. at last people have the chance to get a 120 scroll when they worked the spawn and get raided on the end.
    is more then fair. like it..

    But what about when a RED works the spawn, and the protector works it, and they complete it successfully but don't want them to get the scrolls because then they lose scrolls because of protecting.

    A red player today helped work our spawn. 2 scrolls came up missing.

    I had 4 scrolls.
    The red had 1 scroll. (Didn't touch champ but worked spawn)
    Protector had 5 scrolls (4 from protecting me, one from themself for working the spawn)

    We lost two scrolls because they wern't all going to the person who damaged the champ, and thus could not be protected.

    If we wanted to not be able to get max scrolls like this we would simple let our red hit the champ. But why would we when noone is bothering us.
