Still updating my Beta client, but I'll go ahead and ask now - are the appropriate content packs available in the Beta Store, or can only VIPs get into the new content packs for now? If there *are* new content packs, of course.

BTW, the character copy systems have some time sync problems.
Time requested: 2013-01-16 12:15:26
Time completed: 2013-01-16 12:12:03

Well, either that or the fields are reversed. Or the character copies are REALLY fast.

Also, I see no mention of updates to "classic" items ... not the quest specific ones but things like the Frost Brand, Flametongue - curious if they got a pass this time as well.

No more Crucible required for flagging? Not sure how I feel about that...
No more relics required to flag, thank you.
Relics can get you additional treasure?? Nice touch :).
Explorer area has an epic version? Freaking awesome! Oh, and it has random encounters?? Yes please and thank you!
Vorpal, once an outdated and usless suffix due to the Ring of the Stalker, now has value again? Yes and thank you :D.

Too many people complaining about the swim?

*shrugs*

Not sure how I feel about this one either, but I have never had issue with getting a group for Crucible and I can solo Cabal with zero issues, so maybe they are just trying to get people flagged easier and quicker.

not to mention lord jorgundal isn't actually in cabal. you're supposed to be getting his approval, after all.

or the fact that the crucible only really makes any sense whatsoever if it's a quest to get into the super-secret clubhouse.

Keep in mind they made changes to the heroic quests too, for all we know Jorgy is in Cabal now.

Too much detail to be a typo. It even says people who haven't run cabal will have to run it to be flagged.

Bad idea to change flagging quest from Crucible to Cabal for One. Cabal is sooo easy compared to Crucible. With Crucible, you earn it. Its such an Iconic quest. If its not required anymore who's going to run it? What would be the point? Big mistake in my opinion.

Sorry but how in the world do you find this raid to be a PITA, This raid is easy to complete.

Gkar
01-16-2013, 02:17 PM
Some aspects of the changes, such as buffs to weapon damage dice, critical profiles, or an armor's base AC will be retroactive to your existing items. However, added augment slots or other changed effects on an item are not retroactive.
To get the complete, updated version of an item, you will need to find a new copy of that item.

Boo.

Please reconsider making them updatable via stone of chagne.

Who ever said it was hard? Every horrible mechanic in the book plus boring fights and dumb dialogue make it a PITA, not it's difficulty.

Well that's not all of them, so either they drop in quest or can be bought from somewhere else.

But yeah tokens seem to be needed still, sigh.

From what I understand, named augs will be dropping in chests or somesuch, but there's still the availability of augs from tokens, which is why I'm expecting/demanding them to be dropping tokens in FR.

There's a bunch of new traders in Gianthold that have all the other augments listed in Tolero/FoS's NEW AUGMENTS description post. These alternate augments cost relics (normal for L16- and REFINED for L20,L24 and L24 also take a commendation of heroism).

This along with yet another tier to CitW items... I hope epic reaver's fate drops heroic commendations...

I don't really see a way they could omit Commendations of Heroism from epic giant hold given some people may not own MotU but would still want to make L24 augments. I'm almost more happy to see Comms of Heroism in these Ghold recipes because it means there IS another source of them for upgrading CitW items.... though I'll also want some L24 augments.

Heroic Comms for the L24 upgrades makes for very very sad pandas.

Unless there's some mechanic where you can trade in 15 of each normal commendation for 1 heroic....even that horrible exchange rate is better than getting them to actually drop.

Correct. In the raid, you have a chance of getting 1 comm on norm, up to 2 on hard, and up to 3 on elite. And when I ran it on lama a few times, several comms dropped. So personally, I'm not worried about having to collect them.

But it appears you can 'skip' upgrades by running on higher difficulties.

Wish this was a feature of CiTW, it is a great addition.

I am for the sole fact that the level 24 augments require a Comm..
