    Now that Melange is trained up on item creation, he may be doing more of it in the future. =)
    Blamed? You ended up doing very, very good on eGH and 90% of the MoTU loot.

    You see that even one possible random mutation is no good. Especially on raid loot, and even on named loot but to a lessor degree. I am nearing 60 runs of CitW and still no Twilight for my Sorc. Now if you had put a random SP mutation on it and I ended up getting one without the mutation I wanted, I would be livid. As it stands now my FVS has all he needs from CitW and unless I am helping someone, I will never, ever set foot in that raid on him.

    It is 12 new items. Each quest will be getting one more named item added to its possible loot and Through a Mirror Darkly and What Goes Up will each get one more on top of that.

    So what are these new items, I'm sure you're asking right now. I have an answer!

    In Wheloon:
    The Shade's Hood - a Helmet
    Shadowsight - Goggles
    Glorious Dawn - a Ring
    Trapsmith's Crossbow - a Heavy Repeating Crossbow
    The Morning Star - a returning Shuriken (not to be confused with a morningstar)
    First Blood - a Bastard Sword

    In the Storm Horns:
    Frostbite Blade - a Scimitar
    Thunder and Lightning - Handwraps
    Elemental Fury - a Short Sword
    Giant's Fist - a Maul (and a really painful one at that)
    Nether Orb - an Orb/Shield
    Consuming Darkness - another Ring
    Come on!! Can we get a heavy or light pick? tons of good bastard swords, handwraps and shortswords already. There is only 1 named pick worth using, Deathnip, and its ML 14.

    There are only 2 "good" bastard swords, Echimera fang and Nightmare. But yeah that is still more than the one heavy pick.

    I'd consider Templars Retribution one as well. Anyhow, yeah I'd love a named pick.

    Ya ... totally forgot about them ... would also like to see epic picks ... IMO it all *screems* for a new crafting system like greensteel where you can craft each and every weapon type ... then there would be at least one endgame weapon for each type ... and then there is no problem adding specific named weapons as there is always the possible "fallback" to the crafted weapons (greensteel served that very role for a long time ... but with U19 it really is completely outdated ... it already was with U14 ... but now with increased dice and new enchantments you can random loot better than green steel ...)

    epic necropolis would be cool though as well ... would like to see some undead quests again (yes there was a time when DDO was too undead intensive ... at that time I also didn't want more undead quests) ... but now we have only very few undead in endgame ... and with pally post U19 being so focused on evil outsider and undead I think its about time we get some more epic undead quests ... AND that would mean the possibility for epic deathnip ... THAT would be epic

    Default stat rebalnces annoying

    New items are nice... would be even nicer if our current L25 ones weren't stuck at ML19 attribute bonus levels.

    Aka, EE Helm of Dragons have level 19 +8 attributes on them (as do tons of other L23-25 nameds gears).

    I'd most prefer these to just be updated to +10 stats on all existing named items... or add alter recipes so we can replace our ML19 named L25 stuff. Or you could add a ton of upgrade recipes for your EGH raid/helm loot to go from +8 stat to +10/11 stat... bump the ML if it's a new upgrade recipe.

    Or better yet reduce the power creep and cap attribute bonus at +9 for ML28... save +10 for ML30.

    Then do the same thing for DC focus items and an upgrade recipe for Dream Visor.

    It's like you've smashed the 8 layer cake down, added 3 layers and left current named loot with the raspberry.

    Default Big up!

    All good news there!

    And I just posted to say a big thank you to listen (atleast a bit ;P) to us!

    Also, yes the loot since u14 been very good, heck I love most of the stuff that comes from CITW, each weapon is so different and interesting that I get excited every time I run it to see what I could get! (even if I give to someone else if needed, ofc).

    I have confidence in the upcoming loot (even if a few mistakes were made, but nobody's perfect!) and can't wait to see what it will looks like! Dear developers, don't give up thanks for the great loot until now and keep going! Some of us can be (too much?) rude sometimes, but it's only because they love that game too and only want to get it improved!We have faith in you! Cheers!

    I second and third and fourth that. Please, please, please make it at least comparable (lateral move for different situations) and/or better than Needle. If it's not as good and has a higher min lvl..then it's not going to be a good use of development time.

    Just because something is named does NOT make it relic status. You've become too used to the Monty Haul style of loot.

    Heck, think of the legendary and mythical reputation that the sword Excalibur has. Do you know how 2nd ed. DnD designed it? Just a +5 longsword of sharpness. It didn't even rate vorpal or holy avenger status.

    Aaaand noone gives a **** about how DnD designed Excalibur.

    This is DDO, get your facts straight. There are 2 kinds of loot here: Named loot and Random generated loot. They shouldn't be mixed, ever.

    It's like saying: from now on, every random generated loot that you will pull will have Wisdom +6 on it. And there you killed a category.

    Cool right?

    i agree, named loot is called named loot for a reason,
    i can understand the desire to cater to different builds with the random stuff.
    Might i suggest a crafting system to fill in the random bits instead?
    The Shroud seems to be doing this just fine for many years.


    Question:
    When will we be getting a 2handed weapon that out dps the ESoS?
    i know the FoT gs comes close when dealing with full fort mobs!
    *same for some drow weapon master stuff and a upgraded cleaver*
    but we're 8 levels beyond this thing, mob hp kept inflating, when are we seeing propper 2handed ESoS beater instead of "close but not there yet"

    oh and no joke stuff either, like a greatsword that only works when naked

    They shouldn't be mixed ever? Your ramblings are starting to get more and more nonsensical.
