    Default Are YOU willing to deal with lag and multiple failures for a +5 tome?

    3 successful runs on 3 different days. I personally already have 3 keys, and I don't feel any need for the other items availble from the mote vendor. This frees me from any desire to help farm tokens to open the doors to the dragon fight(The non-intuitive way that drops are determined doesn't encourage me either).

    So basically I'm at the point where all I do is periodically check the countdown,and jump in whe the doors open. If lag strikes and an altar died, costs me nothing. If lag doesn't strike I have a real shot at a successful run.

    The worst part? So far I've had no runs without crippling broken lag that's so bad you can't even move.

    Is it worth the frustration to the rest of you guys? Or not?

    One tome down, one to go.

    Depending on how annoyed I am with the lag (it was incredibly annoying) once I get that second tome, I may or may not pick up a third one for my melee with stunning blow. My pally and ranger, OTOH, can go pound sand. No way am I getting more than 3 tomes.

    (The DC wizard already has his int tome, next on deck is a wisdom tome for the DC cleric.)

    After that all I need is ~1000 motes to finish my monk's wraps and I'm all done with mabar. The augments are nice but I'll live without them. The lag is just too prohibitive.

    Seems to have just crashed thelanis. Unlike when they were +6 tomes I wont be taking any +5's I can get them in the store, the augments and cloaks and upgrades to existing stuff is where I'll be spending my time. Assuming the game is running. which is not a safe assumption.

    IMO they borked something the last update, I've been getting long yellows on join since the hotfix for the exploit. I suspect the game is sending too much data, and so here we are and it's Mabar time and the game is sending too much data AND mabar is usually laggy the first night or two as the crowds peak. Not a good combo. I usually don't lag at all during events.
    You guys filibustering a new mode have already succeeded in scaring the Dev's into not doing it the right way and re-scaling the existing settings, why in the world are you still filibustering? Drunk on your success? Schadenfreude? Spitefulness?

    ....for once, I'm really glad to be in European time zone & therefore the off-peak hours
    I don't mean to come across as unsympathetic - but I am, so I do.

    Pretty much this, don't know of any other way to get them in game so will give it a try. Not going to bother for alts though, so much grinding added since MoTU that I barely play them now so why bother.

    Default yes

    in short yes it's worth it +5 tomes cost way too much TP and I'm poor lol

    Nope. And if I log in again to find crippling lag OUTSIDE Delera's, then I won't bother to log in at all until this PoS is over. If I find another game in the meantime, then so be it.

    I'm pretty used to Mabar being laggy and feces by now, but this is even worse than usual.

    Yeah, it was awful. I quit after an hour and two runs. And lag was bad enough everywhere else tonite that I quit early.

    Pretty much this.

    I've never even found a Tome of any kind. So I'll try to find some time zone that the game isn't a clusterflock to get a +5 tome or two. But I'm not going to go through that garbage again.

    Yes, I will grind this out!! It wasn't too bad last night, aside from a couple instances. The L25ish instances seem harder hit than the lower level ones.

    All in all though, it was a smashing good time with only 25% failure to lag
