What have you done to Miasma's spawn rate?

    Dear gosh it's so SLOW now on test! I used to be able to kill 8-10 miasmas before having to cast EOO, now I can barely kill 2 before needing to cast again. Please don't send that spawn rate to production shards. :(

    And have viking swords always been 50 stones? Because the one I just got off Miasma weighs that.

    That Viking sword almost looks like it has the new "massive" property and just isn't displaying it because I don't recall those being 50 stones

    That must be one of those Unwieldy items, (Increased item weight) I guess it just doesn't display as a property on the items.

    Yes, it's unwieldly. We didn't put in a discrete item property for unwieldly since it already has the weight to describe the increase.

    Will have a look at it. We didn't specifically change any spawn rates.

    I have actually noticed a decreased spawn rate everywhere. Take that with a grain of salt; I have only spent about an hour out hunting on test so far, but everywhere I have gone the spawn rate has been crazy slow. Shame, Blood Dungeon, Swoop, etc.

    Could be your Karma and fame did not copy over to test and that effects the spells duration. Why we need the Anti-Paladin that works off negative Karma.

    No. Miasma has always been a decent spawn rate. If you do it on test now, you catch yourself standing there quite awhile before the next one spawns.

    Ravamped loot on critters compounded by the paragon chest spawn also having the new revamped loot. Then also factoring the chest having a map inside and giving out MArty drops to backpacks. Maybe the game is confused with all the thinking.

    Massive seems like a 125 STR requirement, and is tagged as a curse.

    Hm. Discrete way to describe weight. "Does this sword make me look fat?" "Uh, no, honey. It's very sleek and discrete."

    Yeah that was my mistake, I had them backwards. I do think I'd like to see unwieldy spelled out though on the item. Maybe that's just me.
