    Many players including I agree that glass swords are just a bit too much, even for SOTD. At first I thought it would be cool but after a while I just started seeing more and more of them and it started to get ridiculous. So here's the poll that hopefully will get the attention it needs.

    Heres my feelings on the glass swords.

    PVP (Or Player Damage) - No. Completely Stupid

    PVM - They are fine. Helps people to farm things they WOULD NEVER be able to do for MONTHS. Barracoons; my guild did one; we were doing 8 point fireballs. Barracoon has 15K HPs (I believe). Thats 1875 fireballs (With no LMC.) Not to mention Barracoons HPR && his random spawn he throws. And this is if you ARE NOT interrupted by other players.

    Want to leave them on the shard? Fine. Fix them.

    My suggestions? Either..



    - Make them do 1/2 health to whatever it hits
    Players it does 50 Damage if they have 100 HPs;
    Barracoon 7500 HPs

    Easy :)

    Remove them please, I know the devs try to make it as stupid as possible for whatever reason but please for once listen to the players no one wants them on the shard... I mean like you guys said you can change things anytime you waNT here its just a play area... SO REMOVE THEM nobody wants them there.

    For the Love of GOD, Remove them. They sound cool, but to one hit a player and NEVER MISS? Who the hell was smoking what? I want some!!!! Or was this just an oversite, cause the team does not get much actual playtime?

    Or was this "test" of interst in a classic shard, purposfully mared by glass swords so the Devs could come back afer the fact and claim there was too little interest? I am not a classic shard supporter, but this seems set up to fail.

    Thats what I was thinking that some dev put these in to drive people away from the shard rather then bring people to it...
  11. shard of the dead was always known for cheap kills. this time it just happens to be at the hand of players.

    Honestly, I always thought devs have been doing this for YEARS on real shards. Some of the idiotic things they do can't help but make you wonder if they want everyone to quit. (Increasing spell plague damage when it's already the most overpowered spell in game. LOL.)

    Bet we wont ever get a response from any dev about this even though no one wants the swords and it clearly shows it on these forums.

    I would like to know if they will take them out or no if they are leaving them in for 2 months i'm done playing there right now & my account is going off. If they decide to take them out i'll continue playing i'm just waiting on an answer now.

    Regular shards seem to suck after playing that one tho :(
