    Eveningstar Challenge Cloak Upgrades are also affected by this reduction, with the ML20 and ML24 upgrades each costing the same number of ingredients as the base version (plus the cloak to be upgraded).

    These changes are currently up on Lamannia!
    That's good news!*

    Are there plans to create ML28 versions of the cloaks?



    * Regardless of the fact that I recently upgraded a cloak to ML24.

    Roll up an iconic to farm challenge ingredients.

    Roll up another toon and level to 15 or 16 and leave them there to farm challenge ingredients.

    Seems easy enough if you want the challenge ingredients.

    I get plenty of them on every TR as several challenges can be worth the first time bonus at various levels.

    Thanks for the tip! Had to go thru a couple pages of the Lama tracker to find it.

    Just FYI Steelstar - I do appreciate your responses here but when someone who spends a bunch of time on the forums (me!) has a hard time finding something, how would you expect expect someone who doesn't know his way around to "Just find it! We already told you!"? A little repetition never hurt anything.

    *sigh* How about you take a stab at answering #2.

    If... DDO is serious about possibly making money out of challenges, then the challenges and reward system need updating.

    Not to be an A-hole about this, but we've been told alot of things about the Cannith Challenges that never happen and have never been given an update on. Usually it's something along the lines of "it'll be fixed in the future" or "we're still looking at options" or "we're keeping an eye on it and adjust as time goes on", but we've not be given solid information on the changes that will be made and when they will be made.

    Just a few examples are the numerous times after nerfing XP and mat drops, we've received messages that things may change in the future.

    Another example of something that players never got an update on was the status of the Wand Bracelet. We were told that it had a bug and would be fixed for the next update. Update 13 happened without mention of the Wand Bracelet. Sure, most of us have forgotten about the item, but I think some of us would have expected some information along the lines of "We couldn't overcome the problems of implementing the Wand Bracelet, so it will not be put in the game" in the past two years.

    How about finally fixing the XP?

    Or the double scaling issue?

    I just checked.

    The Set of ML 12 - Tier 3 Master Craftsman challenge gear is still ML 12 when logging in, not ML 10.
    Disjuncting it sets it to ML 11.
    Applying MC to it again sets it to ML 9.



    Yaaaaa... still broken.
    But the lores are correct on them!

    The lores and spell power are correct on live, too. That's just a display bug. If you un/equip them and look at your Effects chat window you'll see what the actual effect is.

    I didn't even know you were looking at changes to Challenge items! There's a lot of questions that raises about what else you did, or could do, and why didn't you?

    1) Can you add a L24 tier to Cannith Challenge gear? It currently caps out at 20, which doesn't carry you very far through Epic anymore, despite the fact that Challenges scale up to L25.
    2) Are you updating existing Challenge gear to reflect new standards for static affixes like Dodge, Lore, etc.? Are you updating base weapon damage to properly scale to Paragon, Epic, etc.? (or fixing the display bug, if that's all that's wrong right now?)

    Actually...I guess its just those two questions....

    Cool about cannith although I can't play them on my level 28th anymore. Since it bottoms out at 25 and you can convert downward from epic mats to regular mats making one let alone upgrading is fast becoming impossible. So fixing those are nice but useless for high level chars.

    second - most of the issues are with Eveningstar. They're borked beyond borked. Because so many interesting features was removed the items generated are either broken or no good. Now I might run to get the cloak but the challenges drops such a meager amounts that I get tired of them and quickly. It's very discouraging.

    I know this is going to come off A-Holish, but it doesn't appear that they plan to make money off stuff already published, or by producing a quality product.

    There are many packs that need fixing and/or updating, and even non-packs like Cannith Crafting are apparently languoring. I say "apparently," because we hear very little of the Dev's intentions, so it's impossible to know if they care.


    It seems that the current revenue strategy is to produce new stuff to charge for, like "expansion packs" and generally creating problems and then providing solutions in the DDO Store to nickel & dime us to death.


    Well, at least there does seem to be evidence of a pattern, and if we're going to be treated like mushrooms, at what conclusions can we be expect to arrive?

    You are asking a whole lot of most of this community.

    Add to this the change to level 20 and 24 eveningstar challenge gear costs on lammania, and it might be worth running them a few times this weekend and saving the mats till 19.2 comes out on live.

    Default Please fix Kobold Island Challenges

    Does this include looking at the kobold island challenges Disruptor and Short Cuts? To my knowledge, neither of these can be completed to more than 4 stars. And, I don't know of any one that has even gotten 4 stars on Short Cuts at any level.

    I did manage to solo Disruptor on level 8 to 4 stars, but that is it.

    The current known issues:

    Disruptor: I have never been able to get all three upgraded to level 3.

    Short Cuts: I have never gotten the orthon star. Either 5 don't spawn or it doesn't count them.
    Short Cuts: I have never been able to get the extractor rate at 12 for 2 minutes.

    Work abounds are not solutions.

    I have kept a character at 20, I would rather have him finish levelling.
    I hate TR.

    People have been finding reasonable solutions but the problem is still the same. Put an exchange for epic to non epic or put a second recipe for epic ing only.
