    Shadowlord Manifestations will now spawn at two hour intervals instead of twelve.

    That's... pretty much it, yeah, sure, that's all we changed. Heh.

    Ahh...good. Not only were they spawning at bad time but they were really too easy. One would assume both have been address.


    Good show ole man!

    Ahhh...there it is. Was waiting for you to speak up toolone..er..slaveone. The UHall never lets ya down. :loser:
     
  21. Having them spawn ever 12 hours, real life, was just way to wrong. People want to play the game not pay those players that can play at server up and then again 12 hours later. Some folks have real life matter to care for, work, children, spouse, etc.. It is these folks that want a chance to earn their rewards in game like anyone else. I am glad they changed the times for all to be able to get a chance at getting that golden ring on the merry go round.

    The "change" Draconi hints at seems to be that they no longer spawn all at the same time at their 3 locations. They spawn randomly about 10 minutes apart. At least this is what I have experienced just now on Legends.

    I don't like this change myself because previously it spread people out over the 3 locations. Now when one is killed, everyone (and their 100 dragons) goes to the next location and so the crowds aren't dispersed.
     
  23. Grumm

    Grumm Guest

    I couldn't agree more. Why give those of us that have responibilities outside a video game any chance at participating in this event. They should just let those that can afford to play all day and night have the oppourtunity. They should just make all events trigger on 12 hour real life cycles. After all, you need to have your pixilated wealth.

    Sorry you're not going to get virtual rich off this event, but for those of us that have a life outside this game, we thank the Devs for allowing us to be able to participate.

    Once again, sorry you're only doing this for the wealth factor. Don't worry too much though. I am sure you can find some other item to get rich off of.
     
  24. No offense Grumm bet everything turns out to be worthless in the end. Dont forget the 1000's of cloaks from last event that are being turned in.

    Dont forget people were getting double the robes, for hours, yesterday.

    The robes were destined to be worthless.


    I want a faster spawn for the other items. Dyes and Mempo.

    Hopefully, youre selling your robes now while the selling is good and can buy back what you need later.

    Or sell, get gold, and buy some more expensive items you might need.

    There is a ShadowLord at the waste on Lake Austin. I don't think I can kill it alone. Where are you, Lake Austin people?

    And the pets can't enter the house of the Waste when there's too many people. And even if they're inside, if they haven't a path to the Shadowlord, they go nuts and stand outside doing nothing.

    Good luck to the players who can only play at peek hours! :/

    I normally don't whine...but there are quite a few people who do work and the times were impossible for those to participate and besides "WHO" said the
    robes were suppose to be rare and expensive?

    Oh and a huge :thumbsup: to Draconi for the changes. Hopefully,
    they will be beefed up as well.
     
  32. ok I love the two hours, but hate the 10 minutes between the three, when they all spawn at same time then they had three places to be at one time, with the 10 minute spawn between them, then there is time to kill one, recall to 2nd one, kill it, then recall to third location kill it.

    I agree with you, I wish they all spawned at the same time.

    Thank you very much for reducing the timer getting up at 4:30AM to kill them was making me cranky.

    Yeah they simultaneously made it easier AND harder for people to get the cloaks. Easier because the 2 hour timer, but harder because you are now competing against far more people than if the 3 locations all spawned at once.

    The shadowlord manifestations die so fast -- its a mass of dragons and then death. If they want to help the casual player (or non-tamers) make them all spawn at once.

    *sighs* :(

    Again I have to ask what are they thinking? The 10 minute intervals seems just plain mean spirited to me. I really dont know what to think about it. *shakes her head*

    *looks at screenshot of swarm of players converging like piranha upon the newly spawned shadowlord*

    hmm ... that whole ToT "distraction" of theirs isn't working all that well any more.

    The swarms will die down once people start getting cloaks. The first week will be cramped but in a week or so everyone should get a chance.

    bah its great news for siege! no trammie insurance.... I can wear my cloak now!
     
  43. Coppelia

    Coppelia Guest

    The majority of players already have at least one cloak apparently.
    There'll be less players when those who want a fixed number of cloak will stop. Also a general boredom will probably come when the euphory of first days will fade out.

    How is the loot on them, and do they hit too hard for a sampire to tank?

    Like a DF I'd say. I have seen or heard of any set pieces or arties spawning on them though. Sampire should be able to tank them fairly easy. They aren't quite tough enough.

    I will be there when I can to kill them, because well, they are there.

    I've been on hand for the death of 9 so far and I've gotten 8 dyes and a chest of heirlooms. No cloak yet, but I still have like 25 after doing turn ins.

    But... 600+ drops, no mempo. Awesome. Think I'll add to my sig.

    Loot is Dark Father loot or Crimson Dragon loot. A lot of 8th circle scrolls and reagents, plus high end item loot (or as high as it goes).

    As far as tanking goes... would you tank this?
    [​IMG]

    In other words, they're pussycats. A pack horse could tank them.
