    Default Rusted Blades - can we go another route?

    Have the quest still give some XP, but move the drow weapons to the optional chests? The Matron already has this - a reason to farm the optional - let's do the same w/ the drow weapons.

    Would rather see that chest just be another chance at them or to start dropping the missing weapon types such as falchions, repeating crossbows, heavy picks, throwing daggers, and bows.

    Anybody know by how much they reduced the base and increase the optionals? I know the note says overall it has increased, but I am wondering what the actual ratios are.

    lol All the commotion...

    If they were really serious about nerfing it they would make the base xp 6k. (and up the optionals accordingly)

    This little drop in XP will make other quests more or less equally profitable. Heavier nerf would make this quest useless XP-wise, this way you just encourage variety. It still retains its own niche confront the other farmable quest for the easy completions.

    Yeah, the result that went live was minimal. Death undone had a bigger hit due to the speed bumps.

    They raised the optional of doing all weapon wracks to 2K XP. So, it'd affect the overall amounts (w/o other bonuses) that you get roughly +1K more now than you did before when doing the optional.

    Of course, the optional requires a second to pull a lever (hireling or cat will do) and adds a few minutes, so for purposes of XP/min only you still are better off not doing it.
