    After 1,5 hour of fighting a blackrock golem with 2 tamers and a Greater dragon on Napa here is a picture of our reward:​

    1.5 hours with 2 tamers with GDs?!

    Yuck!

    Did these drop into your pack or did you have to loot them?

    Here are all four suits. Each seems to be missing a sixth piece.

    Since its listed as 'exceptional' armor I'm assuming that these are intended to be imbued...?

    I dunno, hate to be yet again the negative one but these suits seems very, very... bleh.

    I can't help but wonder if the Mage Armor property also eats up a potential imbue slot.

    Hope we can hear some testing on the mana burst soon.

    Ya they can be imbued and have 500 total intensity. But they already have 140/500 intensity and 2/5 properties on your first attempt. So you are penalized for the mage armor property but not the additional mysterious properties. Considering you do not have the GM arms lore resist bonus, you will probably be spending most of your intensity building resists.

    If where this is headed stays true to the path, I can see specialized suits built high in one or two resists against mobs that don't cast and only deal one or two types of damage. But we don't know what this extra stuff does... Since it is a set bonus and no one has put together a set yet.

    *edit* you are not penalized for the unknown properties on imbuing. My mistake, I forgot mage armor is a 140 intensity imbue.

    Thanks! I love figuring out new spawns. These golems are some of the trickiest mobs yet. A dragon will take them, but like the op says, they will take a long time to kill. These things flip hate a lot and like to turn on anything that deals high damage. A dragon or rising colossus helps out a lot when you are trying to keep them under control. But neither seem to hurt it a lot. Sampires are going to get a nice surprise too. I had to build a custom template on my damage dealer just for them. At low health just have your spell weavers do their thing if speed is your goal. If having fun is the point just have everybody jump in at once and enjoy the mayhem.

    Worth noting is that there's no obvious indication that there's a bonus for having the entire set.

    Very odd.

    They probably hope that that mana boost property will make them considered more useful?

    Great Lakes has the event tonight, assuming that the fiction, the appearance of the Blackrock Golems at Humility, and the scheduling of an event are all related. (Which seems an excellent bet.)

    I'm glad my suggestion at the HS announcement TH that some in-game loot be exceptional stuck with someone, though I'd preferred it to have been my original suggestion of having some T-map and SOS chest loot be exceptional. Maybe this hints that it may still occur in the future.

    Good/Evil Mana Burst eh...
    Sounds like if you are wearing the suit you would have crazy mana regen and never run out of mana ect.

    There's no indication if the mana burst is useless if you had a set neither... You get 2 unknown properties they could be good or bad... but either way instant nay saying is so typical with some people. I remember people doubting hit splintering weapon being useless... yet I see people QQing about it from time to time.

    There will be an event. On Great Lakes it's tonight.

    As to whether or not the items will be available after that event I cannot guess.

    Anything crafted w/ blackrock would be nice, it's worthless as it stands(generally)
