So I hadn't run Dreams in quite some time, but needed it on my latest build on elite for favor.

I warned everyone going in about what a buttkicker it was ....

We get in ... and the Chaos Orbs are completely FUBAR. Most don't move. Most are USELESS.

Why, dear DEVs, did you do this?!? This quest was AWESOME. It was pure insanity.

Now ... well now ... its like meh. Just a run. Nothing special. A few beholders, a few scorps, yay.

Please put the INSANITY back into Dreams of Insanity.

Thank you for your time.

What... you mean something on a computer game bugged? Wow... that's crazy-talk man... crazy talk.

You saw it happen once... that by no mean makes it something the devs actually changed.

1. If you see it happen once, bug report it.
2. If you see it happen multiple times, discuss it in the Bug Hunters Lodge.

Anything else would just be silly.

Ran this quest for the first time ever on normal, and not only were the chaos orbs stationary, so were the beholders. The only enemies that moved were the ones with legs...

I ran it elite a few days ago to help a guildie with favor... orbs were moving, beholders tried to be mean, etc... in fact I picked up some tasty hams from the orbs. Will check it out again soon let you know what I find. I always had loved the quest... every quest with chaos orbs rock!

Not all of them are stuck. Some move, some don't, some move just a small amount and then go back.

If you want to see some other funny pathing bugs, go into the first hallway of Invaders!

Hurry and run it fast on leet b4 everything starts moving again.

Just kidding (not really).

That quest is a doozy, and it is rightly named dreams of insanity. A good caster with PK and your done.

Dreams of insanity, it was never awsome, or fun it was a grind quest that we could run with 4 people on leet and knock it out.
if dreams of insanity is ur obber run maybe lvl past 10 and experience some thing different.

I joined a PUG that asked for help on the end room last night. Both the beholders and orbs were both moving.

Yeah let me clarify: It wasn't that all the orbs were still (but I did say "all" in my OP - my bad).

Just most of them.

The very first orb came whizzing by (although it seemed slower than I recalled), and I definitely remember the orbs were moving in the last room. There may have been 1 or 2 in between.

But it was nothing like what that quest used to be, which was a blast (IMO) with the "hold your breath run to the rune, disable, then fight a ton o' mobs" technique.

Sorry if that makes me un-obber (lol@u).

Our group had the same experience a week or two ago. I believe the orbs were working OK on the inner path, but not the outer. I didn't notice anything odd about the beholders (well, other than being giant eyeballs with ten tiny eye stalks, which probably counts as odd in most other places).

I didn't think to bug report it since I assumed it was a one-time thing, but it definitely made the quest less enjoyable.

Nothing is uber.

I only run elite quests 5 levels higher than my toon, and I don't use weapons or armor. All my toons are perma-death toons and I won't swing my weapon in the game until I have time to roll a 20 sided die myself to compare the numbers. I almost always play with my monitor turned off because seeing would make everything a joke - where's the challenge? I solo the Abbott on elite every day, but before I do I replace my ram chip with an old 32Mb ram chip to try and make it a challenge. I then blindfold myself and have 20 martial arts masters practice full contact kicks and punches to my face while I play to help make it more interesting. Normally I will allow a large rattlesnake to bite me before I play so the venom blurrs my vision and the pain racks my body, then I pull the 'w' key from my keyboard, along with the up arrow so my character has to walk sideways everywhere I go. I do this while 4 people shoot super-soakers loaded with jalapeno juice into my eyes to make sure I don't cheat and peek.

I'm so uber it makes me want to **** my pants!!!

(play to have fun, no-one cares if you think you are uber...)
