    Default Any chance of an Update on Epic Delera's and Threnal

    Hey guys I know your super busy with the E-Pass and the Generic Realms but I recall a contest a while back that resulted in the Voice of the Master and Mantle of the Worldshaper being chosen to be epicfied (From Delera's and Threnal respectively). Which imo is very apt as they house monuments and are voiced by the late great Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson.

    Just wondering if there's any progress on this?

    If not no worries my static group was just buggin me to ask.

    I would truly like those two chains to be revisited especially with Iconics not starting out with either item and having to run those chains for no experience (at least you still get favor and loot).

    I wonder if their answer to this epicification was when they introduced the ability to combined them into a augment slot. From the brief snippets here and there about what is tentatively on the horizon, it's doesn't look like a epic version of these is in the works. I also seem to recall them saying that nothing will be done with Eberron much anymore and they were concentrating on the Realms..

    Mainly the post yesterday from Producer Rowan indicating a Endgame raid Early 2014 (presumably with Epic TR of some sort) then a move to level 30 by the end of 2014. Here's his posts:

    At least for me this leads me to think that it's probably not going to happen. Then again and sort of confirmation or denial would be nice.

    Delera is one thing, but Threnal kinda needs a major overhaul. Well, not "need" but if you are going to dip your toes into that pool a lot more than standard epic-ification should happen.

    First those quests need to have their levels tweaked so that they can be run while utilizing bravery bonus (which threnal south loses out on since those quests are level 9, which E & W both have 10s)

    Second, the entire wilderness area should have something done with it. The three giant cave "quests" should be replaced with real quests... as giants are not appropriate for level 10 content. They should be limited to 13+ content for consistency's sake. (I *think* otherwise they are limited to Stormcleave, Tempest Spine, and Redwillow.)

    Lastly, and this is just an opinion, but at least one of the three escort/protection quests should be redone. My preference would be West 2, since E2 has the escort component at the front end of the quest and failure conditions, whenever possible, should be up front in quests to save on monitor flinging.

    And this would be an excellent area to convert into the new saga system. It has the appropriate amount of content for a saga.

    They never said the packs would be epic only those two specific items. As someone else mentioned I suspect that we got the augment instead of the individual items.

    The items in these quests would be great with epic versions. So many possibilities.

    Default Threnal Epic = death sentence

    Oh god, are you insane?? Coyle is bad enough as he is on heroic. Imagine an Epic arrogant doofus showering bravado about like some kind of Mob repellent. I would refuse to even step foot into the Threnal chain for epic content. The story line is boring and annoying even without the beiber hooser. I'd rather become a rust monsters chew toy first.

    Just make Coyle Invincible seriously I don't get why the quest "fails" when he dies...imo his death should cause you to win right there lol besides the epic version of both quests can be different like they did with gianthold. Which agaion since these are Gary and Daves quests they deserve the extra attention.
