    Ah, that's certainly very easy to do, but suspect won't happen. Doing so might dilute the "bling" effect of earning your reaper wings. I don't really care for that particular cosmetic myself, but...
  3. Lost in the Swamp: new invisible wall blocks trapping?

    Just ran Lost in the Swamp again this life and it looks like there's an invisible wall now that blocks access to the second half of the pillar-traps, making them inaccessible. It's been at least a...

    If you're not dealing damage, you're not making progress. This is the ideal that groups in every single MMO more or less strive for. Sometimes folks forget that the pronoun "you" in that sentence...

    LOL. Someone recalls fun & games from FFXI. My own philosophy for that situation was "if you can't handle the trains, don't fight on the tracks."

    Fixing reaper (for melee)

    Reaper should be more difficult than elite. This is a fantastic decision and I'm glad SSG implemented it because elite is far too easy to be considered the most difficult content.

    However, I...

    This is why L/DA should proc things as well. If a warlock aura can proc consecration's 10% critical bonus (and other things), L/DA should also be considered an appropriate trigger, too.
