    The absolute crippling lag makes the dragon encounter impossible for many people, just like last year and every year since this event was spawned. Every year people bring up the same complaints about the lag and yet there has been no serious attempt to fix this problem. It's been pointed out that the mass spawning of the mobs combined with the number of people per instance is what's causing this so here's an easy solution: cut everything by half. Half the mobs, half the rooms, half the people, half the dragons HP. Problem solved. As it stands now the encounter with the dragon is laughably easy and the only way anyone fails is thanks to the 5 minute slideshow this game becomes, so it isn't a balance thing.

    i got in earlier: a few thoughts:

    1. with the level cap at 28, it woudl be nice if u could upgrade level 24 stuff to a level 28 version.

    2. I don't understand why creatures that are too weak are in certain level ranges. I am in the 26-30 level range with a level 28 character and run into creatures that are too weak to give a reward. Wouldn't it make sense that people in their own level range or higher get a rewards for the mobs in there?

    3. There is no draught of midnight in the store. I traded for one to see how it woudl work and then....

    4. LAG MONSTER. i figure i will get no use of my draught as i have spent the last 30 min trying to connect unsuccessfully... sigh. lost connection, lost connection, lost connection....

    Default Utterly Craptastic

    Made it to the dragon twice in the 26-30 range. In both cases we failed because the instant the first set of mobs spawn everyone in the instance is frozen with lag. First time was instant fail. Within 30 seconds of the start we received the announment that an alter had been destroyed and we were booted. Second time we just stood there for several minutes while night gargoyles destroyed our alter then proceeded to kill us. Unable to move the entire time. When we did get the message that an alter had been destroyed it took several minutes for us to get booted out. This was on Cannith. No idea what the experiences are in the lower level ranges but at 26-30 the dragon is unplayable. In its current state Mabar is not ready for live.
    Cannith: Lysaer (assassin); Arithon (assassin, too); DrShortLove on the Wand (he's short, he's a cleric, he has a wand and he's not afraid to use it); Mindok the Mind Menace (he's short, he's dead, fear his finger); Naruvek (pewpewpew artificer); Rathain (monk, that is all); Rauven (pewpewpew mechanic); Saruvek (mutt)

    You get a laggy instance you fail doesn't matter if you're good or bad or work as a team or anything. Used 2 keys entire instances lagged out for everyone there, make group size smaller put in less gargoyles, put a longer timer on the light lever; do something to reduce the lag on the servers/instances that cant handle it. i2049 is always a dog, throw that server in the trash.

    As for the mabar area itself; need to have some chance of normal liches dropping dust. It's just a grief fest whenever a red named one does spawn near jack or w/e.

    Angry Bug

    So I'm running Mabar in the spectral dragon chamber(lvl 26-30) on my level 26 wiz/monk. Took us a while to defeat the dragon but we managed. At the end it gave the announcement saying we defeated him and such and received a spectral dragon scale and signet. How ever i checked every ingredients bag i had(5), collectibles bag and even my gems bag as well as my inventory. I didn't get either of the items... Went to report this as a bug but it said it wasn't available. So i submitted a ticket and they respond with saying they couldn't help me with this...

    Default no fangs no dust lots of lag

    Killed a bunch of Litches in LVL 20-25 and 16-20 none dropped dust.

    Killed vampires no fangs, there where some invis. vampires but most worked ok except for the no fangs.

    Missed first dragon lag hit as I clicked the door had to relog to get going again.

    Second attempt at dragon bad lag so we failed.

    This.

    I did want to get a few of those augments, but they are honestly not worth the frustration. Wait around for close to two hours for it to open, and then BAM lag and fail.

    I don't think I've ever been this disgusted with this game.

    went in on a level 13 wiz then a lvl 7 wiz both times in the correct instance and
    it was 50/50 wether what you were killing would be in range or to small to pass
    stuff for the kills.

    did 2 dragons lvl13 sucsess lvl7 fail guess the 7 will be worked on so its higher leveled
    by the time it comes out properly.

    was playing on sarlona and didnt see any lag except when coming off the ship into
    house j.

    heard vamps all the time but couldnt see any and when i cornered one and killed it
    no fang

    do have a question tho concerning liches, do they only spawn in certain levels or
    are they ment to be seen in all? didnt see any.

    over all it was fun.

    your friend sil

    Didn't see it. I am having major lag like others are complaining about. I wonder if I lagged through it. Twice though... that's obnoxious.

    Default Lagbar

    Just logged on. I've only spent a billionth of a second in that summoning chamber, and I already hate it: lag.

    Crippling lag. Couldn't touch the lever, couldn't touch any monsters. Nothing went on cool down when clicked. Meanwhile hp is slowly chipped away by active mobs. Failed the instance a minute into the lag.

    During previous Mabar events, I don't remember lag being any of the negative highlights, so I have hope that this can be fixed. But if tonight's event activity level was really as low as it looked on Argo, and we are already struck with this magnitude of a lag, I am really not looking forward to the full-blown event.

    On a brighter note, thanks for readjusting the ingredient drop rate and mote rewards. Last year was an abominable farm. Also kudos for removing the +6 tomes. This game was not ready for and did not need that.

    Stupid Mabar.

    Used my store bought key from the last event , got stuck on a load screen as soon as I went into the dragon fight, game timed out kicked me out of DDO.
    and took forever to clear the old data and reconnect..
    Finally get reconnected, raid is finished didn't get end reward and took my key...

    yeah screwed again .. Thanks for the false Hope Cordovan.

    I saw a few things that were a little odd. Fire turret could be cast but doesn't deploy. some of the creatures I saw would come out then go back into the ground but would pop up fully when they took damage. i also did note that on my levlel (level 6) there were not that many mobs out.

    Just give everybody one of those signets for stepping in the dragon, and leave the dragon slayer reward as the spectral scales. The lag and player attrition problems make it exceptionally frustrating to try to get what you want here. I don't even feel like doing it when it goes live, because the lag will be even WORSE then.

    Also, sell signets for motes as well.

    I saw plenty of lich dusts drop on my level 27 toon in the 26+ instance while I was in a party. Most times we killed a lich 2-3 random people would get a lich dust.

    I take this back, both level 26+ instances failed on Sarlona (because Sarlona) but both level 12ish succeeded. So I'll just stay on my lowbies.

    Yep!

    The Spawn Griefing has returned!

    Had a L4, L9, and L14 all in the L26-30 Zone.

    Would not move. Ruined spawns for a whole lot of people.

    All of them reported.
