    I did the Defiler final event last night and boy was I disappointed. It wasn't that tough but it took a fair amount of effort and after the long arduous fights with crazy over hitpointed monsters to get the quests finished during this story arc, this was the icing on the cake. Immediately after the Defiler was killed I guess a statue was put up for people to get the claw. Unfortunately about 1/3 to 1/2 of the people there never saw the statue so got nothing. This includes me, my guild leader and the guild leader of the largest guild on the shard among the many. Now to me it's not the danged claw that's the point, this was the final chapter of this story and like I said, after this being the most difficult of the storylines to date to do, not to let everyone that attended and fought to get a small reward is just ridiculous. Several folks had died at the end and when they got rezzed, the statue was already taken away. The EM moved the statue I guess 2 or 3 times, I asked and was told what it looked like but I could not see it and it did not show up on control-shift so no claw for me and the many others with the same problem. It seemed the EM was more interested in keeping the reward away from the xsharders than making sure that the actual fighters got one. I never read anything about other shards having this problem, was the system different or ?

    Yeah..fight was boring but as soon as people started gating in leeches, we all covered up the statue with garg wings so that it was "difficult" for the un-experienced to see it (use object handles to overcome this). We all got the claw, of course. Kept it up until the EM's poofed the statue. Plan worked like a dream and insured the claw numbers were kept to an extreme small limit.

    Them's the breaks.... next time..stay sharp and focused on the goal. Don't blame the EMs for your shortcomings. It is all your fault.

    Please explain. We made sure the leeches did not get their chance to abuse the system. Is there something wrong with that?

    A lot of people who were part of the event could not find the statue before it disappeared..you didn't just prevent the "leeches" from abusing the system *frowns* Your motive appears to be keeping the number of claws limited. I suppose to make them more valuable? Another reason why they never should have started with event items again. *rolls her eyes*

    Widowmaker your just a effin' jackass...no two ways about it.:loser:

    That being said I managed to get 6-7 on each of the two shards I play on Sonoma and Europa.

    Both EM's pulled the statue pretty quick when they started seeing alternate characters recalling and gating in.

    Maybe those players using the CC client were at a disadvantage compared to those using the EC. I used the ctrl+ Shift so it didn't matter if numbskulls like Widowmaker were covering up the statuette.

    I feel bad for those who attended the event and partook in killing Sceletus didn't receive a claw but there really is no excuse/reason why they didn't get the claw.

    I kept my eye on the Queen and her whereabouts the entire time duration of the event...listening to what she was saying and where she was going.

    *Kiss Kiss* Jesus loves you to Madrid. Even if you are hatin' the playa

    BUT...you did the one thing that the less than attentive others did...dare I call them fools?? You kept your wits about you, used what you should have and succedded in your goal achievement. I am so sorry that not everyone else used the grey matter God gave them and were successful, as well.

    *shakes head* I am simply amazed at the prevelance of stupidity in the human gene pool since ceasation the practice of eugenics.

    Statue was up for a good while, longer than some of the other shards.

    And if you missed it.. well like it has been mentioned before... keep an eye on what the EM was doing... clearly started talking after the take down, not hard to follow on the journal and see that the statue was erected. :pie:
