They are so sensitive to any criticism, smart to temper it.The decision to make some items BtC was IMO one of the most stupid ideas brought into this game (to be clear: I'm talking about the decision, not the person who made it). Therefore when any dev says that "we don't hate alt playing" it's just empty words from player's point of view - the reality we can see in DDO simply does not support such claims. And I'm sorry to say that, because besides that I like this game.
to be fair people are constantly ***** on them (wether thats reasonable or not is whole nother topic of its own) so Im not suprised it builds up.They are so sensitive to any criticism, smart to temper it.
The loot in the new raid "Fire Over Morgrave" is improperly set to be Bound to Account. We intend to change the binding status of the loot in our next game update, tentatively set for next week. After the update, this loot will become Bound to Character. Any loot acquired prior to the fix will see its binding status change at that time.
Our guild ransacked the raid three times. We'll continue to run the raid regularly for the secret chest, as well as threads. It's only a 10 min raid on R1, making it the quickest legendary raid to complete.The hardcore players out there have probably ransacked all their toons and run this probably 40+ times already
Im guessing they have everything they need from this raid - appart from the Secrets aspect so may not be inclined to run this alot after the patch.
I think you are not disagreeing with keeping the drops BTAOur guild ransacked the raid three times. We'll continue to run the raid regularly for the secret chest, as well as threads. It's only a 10 min raid on R1, making it the quickest legendary raid to complete.
I couldn't care less about the binding status. I play the game as it is, not how I wish it would be. I do think SSG should be exploring alternate rules servers, such as trading/auctioning named items. It's the most popular ruleset for Daybreak's EverQuest time-locked progression servers.I think you are not disagreeing with keeping the drops BTA
Guilds dedicated to raiding are going to play the raids even if they have all the loot. Lava divers continue doing the old raids, and at this point they no longer get anything useful from them, except threads. I'm not in a dedicated raiding raid, but I like the social aspect of raids and play them on pugs every chance I get.I think you are not disagreeing with keeping the drops BTA
And boosted gear. Last night I got a +1 mythic Tumbleweed and a +2 mythic Labrythine Edge. On loot boost weekends, we tend to run many raids just for the increased chance at boosted gear.Lava divers continue doing the old raids, and at this point they no longer get anything useful from them, except threads.
Because although we know that it will be of no use in this case, it helps SSG to realize our level of disagreement with the state of the loot and storage.SSG refused to keep the VU artifacts BtA, so I don't know why people think they'd do anything different for raid gear. All this raid release has done is demonstrate SSG's quality assurance process has a very low standard for success criteria. Rerolling raid chests, BtA gear (except for the runearm), no Threads of Fate, no +8 tomes in the main chest, and item effects that aren't scaling properly. The only thing they didn't screw up are raid runes, which have been passable at release for some other raids (and subsequently fixed).
There is a solution to your problems…Because although we know that it will be of no use in this case, it helps SSG to realize our level of disagreement with the state of the loot and storage.
Many of us are tired of the game's deplorable storage system, which is reaching saturation levels. We are tired of spending an hour or mroe emptying the TR cache because there is an excess of btc items. We are tired of having so many mules, and that in each xpack and each pack they create more loot but not more storage.
If we don't complain, Ying, there will never be changes. Complaints may not be useful for this raid, but SSG has to start thinking about the problem of storage and an oversized TR cache. It is a problem that is not solved by selling 10 slots to a single character in packages of 100 bucks. That is rather an insult to our intelligence.
A review of btc items is the first step to solve the problem. Not the last by far, but it is a fact that there are an excess of btc items in the game. By God, even the Crystal Cove compasses are BTC. What nonsense.
And honestly, alts also need urgent help. They are in a dying state. So much grind, so many obstacles to alts... SSG would sell more tomes and more storage if they incentivized alts instead of creating a lot of btc loot.
