Has anyone tested out Abbot yet?

Any problems there?


Theory:
On live there was reported long ago a bug where you could potentialy run out of astoriods.
If this happened, it was possible for the game to equip your greensteel and throw it.
Since most greensteel weapons are not returning, the greensteel would be destroyed.

Theory:
On live there was reported long ago a bug where if you want astroids equipped and left the raid somehow, you could lose your greensteel.

Question:
Someone, please tell me,
Was this bug ever fixed?


Theory:
Last update presented problems in Abbot.

Question:
Have the new changes presented any difficulties in Abbot?

Everything in the game that has to do with throwers or physics is pretty heavily bugged due to physics update.

You can toss a dozen rocks at a asteriouds with perfect aim and nothing ahppens now. More broken then its ever been.

re: Toss your greensteel away: Been fixed months ago. Was not limited to abbot or greensteel, was a bug with limited stack throwers: Toss last one, and auto equip next weapon, then toss next weapon as if it was a thrower.

Just most often seen in abbot cuz no one uses limited stack throwers anywhere else in the game.

Possibility to fix physics brokeness before launch:

The greensteel issue was fixed.


Latest issues...
Invisible asteroids.
Asteroids that are not destroyed when hit even 2-3x

The rest is pretty much the same,.. depending on how long you were gone (assuming since greensteel incident).....

Abbott has more HP and has some sort of periodic disitigrate avoidance.

Abbott loot was "upgraded"... meaning it was downgraded to be upgraded using a rare drop seal that only drops on hard/elite.
This allowed the new version of items(nerfed compared to old version) to upgrade to be better but ended up upgrading to be the same as the old version.
Don't convert your old version to the new it will make you sad.(vile blasphomy goes from 3 clickies to 1 clickie and can then be "upgraded" back to the 3 clickie with a seal even though the crafting alter said it would go to 5 clickies.. (this description may have been updated)

Only good upgrade out of this...
-Quiver when upgraded with the seal gives 30% striding.
-Littany upgraded removes the taint of evil so you can equip it on good players.

Noxious Embers actually results in an "upgraded" form that is identical to the old version except it no longer has the fire spell damage boost.

Bow, Staff, and Long Sword have vastly different abilities than before, so you may want to keep an old version around. The Long Sword, for instance, was one of the best elemental beaters in the game, and now is vastly different.

The only other place where the "throw away your greensteel" bug was really seen was Tomb of the Blighted, which also used a stack of throwers. The bug was fixed prior to the creation of Spinner of Shadows.
