View Full Version : Make books in crypts usable as puzzle helpers in abbot

It would be nice if the books collected in bloody crypt, shadow crypt, and cursed crypt could be used to provide a benefit to puzzle solving in abbot. Normally, people just ditch the books after clearing the quests.

If say book in bloody benefitted roids by adding a 2-3 hit shield,
book in shadow provided a short window of tile visibility or slowing tile fade,
and book in cursed halted dart traps temporarily.

It would be a tradeoff of time collecting the books (shadow requires rerunning all 5, ergo it affects goggles) versus just running the puzzles as normal.

I would rather not have to do the puzzles in Abbot at all. They are such a pain, and I have never gotten a completion in Abbot. I've done all the other raids except Titan on hard or elite, and none of them were as difficult as Abbot.

The only problem I have with your idea is that it requires alot more effort, and if you don't have all four necro packs, it becomes very difficult. Abbot already requires a high level of coordination.

My logic was based on some of the previous topics that harumphed at making the puzzles simpler without a price. So I figured this might be a nice middle ground.

My solution makes the puzzles easier and also adds relevance to the earlier necro packs. It'd actually possibly help people get in to the raid if they are carrying tome x.
