Why still have loot on monshers?

    With Imbuing, i have to ask what the point is in monsters having loot?

    now we have imbuing, 99.9999% of loot is useless (apart from champs or named creatures)
    infact, worse than useless as it adds to server lag ...

    I guess you can unravel some of the decent loot for imbue ingredients...

    maybe best to remove all useless loot apart fro gold ... ?

    Just a thought...

    Also where do you expect to get the stuff to imbue with if you do away with monster loot?

    You should try starting a new character! You'd be thrilled at the monster loot then!

    You need the loot to unravel.

    Well, I have a network of people in my guild who are more than happy to twink me, but I continue to decline.

    I use the equipment I get from monsters. I am THRILLED when they drop a piece of armor as I am wearing a piecemeal set on many of my characters. I do have a GM tailor, but I'm trying not to twink if I can help it.

    The game is much more fun for me that way.

    I even use the clubs Ogre drop! They are excellent backup weapons! ;)

    Well, i might not be a power player but i find monsters loot pretty useful to get items with properties that my artificer can't simply afford to imbue. I don't know the prices of reagents on your shard but in Europa you need to be a billionaire to craft a decent suite.

    My preferred items are fc/fcr rings, lower mana cost leather parts, super slayer and spellchannel/mage weapon weapons.

    The biggest problem is that looted items have this weird -50 on total properties weight that really kicks in when you're trying to carve out something good.

    Monsters (not monshers- Damn Laptop keyboard !!!!)

    I guess just a little Disillusioned with killing high end critters and finding no armour or weapons that comes on a par or even close to items with imbuing - either forcing me to make an imbuer char or beg another player to make something for me...

    I was only playing! I personally hate the imbuing stuff. I would rather do it old school, but I won't lie, I have quite a few pieces that are imbued....
     
  13. If you're cheap like me, you can still find useful items to enhance. Like a ring with high DCI and fasting casting, for example. ;)

    *laughs* Are you serious? If you ARE serious and don't want the loot then its rather simple solution. Umm...don't open the corpse after you kill the monster. As for the rest of us. There are so many reasons why monsters have loot.

    1) Knowledgable smiths and tailors can make better and more powerful armors and weapons using items found in loot, than a legendary imbuer can think of making on their very best day. And it can have the repair property..ie blessed all 70's repair suit. And non imbued items can be powdered and repaired forever.

    2) New characters enjoy having equipment and being rewarded for fighting monsters. Otherwise why even fight a monster?

    3) Looted items can be smelted/unravel/cut-up loot for resources.

    4) Imbuers can find loot pieces with modifications that save on the more expensive and harder to hunt imbuing ingredients. For example leather armor with mana regen 2 or a kryss with high swing speed increase.

    5) There are tons of players who could careless about powergaming.

    no you cant, because looted items have a cap of 450 for imbue, which is really low. The only loot pieces worht keeping are jewlery, everything else is just unravel fodder now.
