    I REALLY wish you would consider the drop rate for the doom Halloween artifacts. This time of year is busy for a lot of us and from what I've read and heard....1-2 artifacts an hour of constant monster killing is just a plain out grindfest. Now picture that on larger populated shards and it doesn't sound fun at all. :(

    i built a new suit with loads of luck and crazy stats. using all the new properties and awesome loot the devs have painstakingly put into the game i plan of Whirlwinding 5 dark fathers at a time, clearing out doom non stop fast and getting like 1000 arties YAY ! very cool. some of items are even actually useable. the mace is really bad but good for noob character / auto-attackter. cloak is a good mid-range option. boots are sweet. ring opens up some gear options. very cool stuff im excited to get killing.

    I tested it a bit on Origin, with 220 luck my tamer got 1-2 a hr. With 1220 luck my myst mage got 6 a hr... It's just a matter of killing as much as possible in least time... Or killing high end monsters...

    To put it into perspective, the "guaranteed reward point" (which is the base for ToT-esque events) system uses a value called "frequency" to control how odds are calculated based on the amount of points your character has accumulated. The lower the value, the better your odds at a drop, the lower your creature points. For Treasures of Tokuno that value was 44, for Blackthorn's Dungeon that value is 22, and for Treasures of Doom that value is 1. The way the GRP system works is that each creature you kill awards a pool of points based on their fame. That pool is distributed among players on the creatures "top attacker" list (which accounts for damage received, damage dealt, and damage healed). As you kill creatures you accumulate points, and the more points you have, the closer the chance of you getting an Artifact of Doom approaches 1 in 1. As mentioned in the patch notes, luck plays a role, and being hidden will reduce the amount of points awarded (this has been that way since Treasures of Tokuno).

    Could I PLEASE, get my account age back!?!?! It's been missing in the EC since the new UI went live. I can't stand not knowing how old I am!!!

    And what about that stinking target window defaulting back to the top center of my screen every time I log in!?!

    And how about the fix for my skills? No mention of that? Am I still not going to have my skill tracker open and properly updating.... I so miss it.

    Thanks, Kyronix. But 5 weeks? Honestly? I got 2 little childs and a hard job. I am really disappointed. How shall I find enough time in 5 weeks? That is not fair. This is an offer for unemployed, addicted, retired people or millionaires. January 01 would have been okay. But 5 weeks? Bah... :talktothehand:

    VvV Players who are hidden will not count towards occupying a city.
    Does that include the thieves that are stealthing, stealing Sigils and turning them in? Hope not...

    The character profile page in the EC is uneditable, and half the time once you open it you then can't close it.

    EC RPers would like this functional.

    @Kyronix
    Are Tamers or Mystics penalized for using pets or summons?

    Could you PLEASE say more regarding this. For instance, if I'm surrounded by mobs and I invis/hide to get the agro off me and then continue killing, will that knock points off me for kills?
    Or - are you targeting the stealth/tamer here - or what? Kindly give us a bit more info on the hiding.

    Numbers like 44 or 22 or 1 say nothing without knowledge how they used.

    The lower the value, the better your odds at a drop - this part I understand.
    the lower your creature points - this one is cryptic.

    There are no penalties for using pets or summons. It only counts if you are hidden at the time when the points are awarded, which is at the time of the creature's death.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you... So being hidden at the time of kill (just like Luck) is what matters... Thank you very much for clarifying this, Kyronix... Did I mention, you're my fav dev... Although Bleak's pretty kewl... At least both of you are here talking to us...

    Let's say for example you kill 1 vampire bat which gives you say, 70 creature points. When you kill the next mob, you will roll for a chance at a minor artifact. In this scenario your odds are based on having 70 creature points, which is very low. As a result you maybe have something like a 1 in 150,000 chance without any luck. Fast forward to having killed multiple creatures and now you have say, 100,000 creature points. At this point the next creature you kill may roll with odds of something like 1 in 3. Frequency comes into play in saying that you are getting better odds at getting a drop per kill when having lower creature points.

    Now I can't understand why lower value gives better odds at a drop. :confused2:
    And where 44/22/1 numbers are used.

    What are odds at a drop on killing 100th vampire bat using ToT values compared to killing 100th vampire bat using new doom values? Is it 44 times better?

    Kryonix, I haven't heard of anyone getting the FC1 mempo from trade orders. I know this this doesnt mean people haven't gotten one but could you give some insight into the drop rate for one, or if theres a minimum number or orders needed to be turned in to qualify etc. Seems like an awfully low chance to get one considering time put into doing them.

    luck has nothing to do with the drops from the merchant quests.
    luck does effect stuff you kill.
    so for Doom you need luck to increase your 'frequency'

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the devs say a few years ago that luck has nothing to do with the frequency of drops, only the power of the drops once they appear? So it might take you a month to find a great ring, but once you find it it'll be the best ring ever, type of thing.

    Is there a way to track how many "creature points" you have? Or how many each mob has?

    Yes, that was a few years ago. Luck would change the intensity of the items that dropped - not the frequency.

    But - game changes...now, we have to choose luck or high end suit...

    I haven't tested the treasures of doom content yet, but 5 weeks doesn't seem long enough especially during the holiday season. Feb 1 would be better. May even persuade some rtb'ers to opt for the six month sub....

    8-23 per hour?
    im assuming thats a party of 20 people?

    the best drop rate ive seen so far with luck over 2k has been 3 per hour PER MEMBER of the party.
    so 3 guys pulling 9 per hour, 5 guys pulling 15 per hour.
    cause if your pulling 23 per hour on one guy i am doing something seriously wrong!

    I got lucky and noone was in the gibberling spot, got 2 in the first 15 minutes then nothing for the next hour.

    Also I logged off my mage/tamer and logged on my crafter to do some Trick or Treating and have gotten NO rare drops at all..nothing but candy for the last 2 hours....

    Something is wonky :/

    As I recall from previous years it's always been streaky like that... RNG never did work right. I thought at one time one of the DEV's ages ago before he got canned was going to put in a newer much better RNG... but that never happened. Sorry to say.

    I've always been of the opinion that when you account is "created".... you are given a "luck" number or bonus to the RNG. For some it's a + number.... for others like myself it's a - number. Has to be... Everyone who plays knows this guy or girl who ALWAYS seems to get all the drops... they seem so "lucky" that it's downright disgusting... and then there are some of us like myself who couldn't get "lucky" at a drop with 50k in luck on... because quite frankly the game puts us at -100k luck to begin with... making a drop chance something like that ever elusive Moonstone stuff. Which I will probably never see in my lifetime if I played uo 20 hours a day 365 days a week solid.

    I don't know how long I played going to Doom 100's of times without EVER getting a drop.. no matter how much damage I was doing.. even if I NEVER died.. and never quit attacking I never got a drop... Doom had been around for YEARS before I finally got my first drop... and what do I get? Freaking Dragon Lance.... I was like you can't be serious..... I get a drop and it's almost the biggest steaming pile of **** in Doom... Meanwhile one of our guildies goes down there and the Dark Fathers are up and we kill the first one..... he gets a freaking orny.... we pull the next one..... and the MF gets yep.... another dang orny. Explain that. There is ZERO explanation for that sort of "luck" besides what I said.... when each account is created it's given a "bonus" hidden... either you are a + or you are a - and maybe there are some neutrals... but I for one am for sure a - .... Only thing I was ever good at getting was EM drops until they of course put in that stupid top damager BS..... then once again my luck factored in at a massive negative and I never saw another drop .... now it's a rare day in hades if I get anything. I'm sure if my guildie was still playing... he'd have every dang drop there was. *rolls eyes*....
    He'd have that elusive mempo and 4 or 5 pieces of moonstone jewels too.

    I totally agree Piotr, they do look better in my opinion, still could be cleaned up a bit I think.

    I did manage to get an obsidian skull right before I went to bed so here they both are.

    I just got a crystal one. Looks like it did in the EC sans some of the black boarder artifacts.

    Sad thing is I could clean this thing up in photoshop in like 10 or less minutes.
