    Hi,

    Has anyone received a Shroud of the Condemned from killing Tyball's Shadow this past week? I have killed 112 this week without receiving a single shroud and was wondering if something has changed.

    Thanks, Katrena

    Soon after the launch of Stygian Abyss, Tyball was nerfed from the drop being common to very rare. That is the last change I've heard of.

    After the change and nerfing of Tyball I've not once ever received a shroud so I guess I can't help you there.

    Is that the only way to get the shroud except buying from players? thanks

    They nerfed the drop rate into oblivion. They really need to readjust all of the Stygian Abyss drops so they are a bit more reasonable. If the current chance is 1 in 100 (and that is a guess based on other mini champ drop rates) then I would tweak it to 1 in 50.

    I agree with you on this one. While I am normally doing the mini spawns for the imbuing ingredients it does seem like the drop rates are low unless you get really lucky.

    I dont understand why they go to all the bother of devolving things just to make them so rare they very rarely drop. People don't want to have to do something with a 100 to 1 chance of getting the reward. More so when it takes 30+ minuets to do 1

    Yes, "someone"...

    I can do 20 and not get a single one. Plus the respawn on Tyball is slow. :(

    I haven't even been into the abyss since the shame loot changes. There are a couple of drops from renowned that I want, but I've mostly received trash artifacts in the past and haven't been interested in trying my luck. After I get around to making some new suits and need essences I'll return to farm those, but probably not until.

    Tyball seems to be the one thing I don't have problem with drops. Did 10 the other day and got 3 shrouds.

    What I do have a problem with: I've done several hundred of the Stygian Abyss [Reknowned] mini-champs. I have never seen a Stygian Abyss Artifact. Never.

    On shards where I don't have the gold for a conjour's garb I farm the the shroud. I don't know how many I kill but unless I am having bad luck I get about 1 per hour.

    Did about 15 or so with zero drops. Loot is also completely awful - its like gazer level loot. You would think this would provide more than single mod jewelry.

    It is typical UO - instead of making ADJUSTMENTS to systems they swing the dial wildly in the other direction.

    From a drop on every one and insta spawn to dropping every 100 and 1 min waits between spawns. Why can't you have it drop 1 per 10 or 15 and autospawn.

    Same with the spider... The 15 min timer between spawns is just stupid. Everytime I decide to try to go down and get a tangle - I leave after 1 or 2 because I'm bored off my rocker. No one likes to sit in a room and do nothing while waiting for the next to spawn. It is a completely stupid way to 'limit' the drop. If you want to limit the drop - make it drop 1/2 as much but then insta spawn.

    I swear that the devs do NOT play this game whatsoever nor do they have a decent focus group to get feedback.

    You can evidence it in the declining numbers. Its like Best Buy going out of business. Anyone can tell you the problems with Best Buy and why we don't shop there but they turn a deaf ear and instead will go out of business.

    Out of touch with your customers - out of business. Welcome to a capitalistic economy.
    Diablo III out in May!!
