    Actually. Ghostbane itself is not what's wrong.

    It was the convoluted, short-sighted, utterly idiotic decision that brought it about, and the utterly incomprehensible decisions to make it occur on every other drop afterwards, while getting rid of all the other cool prefixes, that is actually the problem.

    Combining Ghost Touch and undead bane? Not a bad decision.

    Combining it for new players levels 1 - 6 where Ghost Touch is not even remotely needed? Unbelievably dumb..

    I agree with the general sentiment expressed herein.

    The new loot tables have eliminated a lot of the stuff I enjoyed getting.
    Please Turbine, bring back the rich, full loot lists we enjoyed prior to Shadowfell.

    Oh, and you can probably ditch ghostbanes and retributives for a good long while, the game is overflowing with these.

    Thanks!

    How is the loot worse? You can get outstanding rings, cloaks, necklaces, bracers, belts, boots and goggles now that are often the best in slot from treasure chests. So you lose some weapon prefix/suffixes, so what? Isn't everyone using CitW weapons, esos ot grave wrappings? Lots of the random caster sticks are draft sexy. What exactly are you missing? And you leave out some really good random gen weapons like improved vorpals with doublstrike. The number of weapon choices now vs 5 years ago is staggering.

    That is only in epic levels. And the point is: why in God’s name would you make random loot that outshines hard-to-get epic items? It defeats the purpose of running raids.

    Besides the fact that they were useful and fun?

    Ummm…no?

    I have 4 toons post lvl 20. I have maybe 1 desirable weapon like Pinion. Not everyone grinds for an eSOS every minute they log on to DDO.

    They were. I’ve got three of them. Those don’t drop any more.

    I have yet to see one “improved” anything. And no, the number of weapons choices if not “staggering.” Now they suck.

    Rather than roll it back to the far superior previous version of loot, I suspect it is far more likely the next expansion will bring us an even more refined and streamlined version of loot. All loot will be further reduced to one of four versions.

    "Heroic Named Item" (Not acutally named, just called "named x")
    "Epic Named Item"
    "Heroic Random Item"
    "Epic Random Item"

    They will have on them only Ghostbane or Riposte and augment slots of various colors, purchasable only in the DDO store.

    I want to be able to farm specific chest for specific loot, not open 200+ without seeing good combination.

    While you may not like how best in slot loot is now distributed, the loot is better which was the point of the thread. You say not everyone spends all time grinding for an esos, ok fair enough but this shows there is a point to run raids because that is where the best weapons still drop.

    Yes, the slicing and bleed and desert sand stuff was fun, but why can't stuff be put out in limited editions? And most of this stuff was best for TR leveling anyway. You can still craft twink weapons and GS is still an option.

    Now if you want to complain about a lack of space to store some of these weapons that are nice to have I second that.

    There are some items that are higher power (although most of the best stuff from MotU random loot isn't replaceable), but generally the new stuff is dull.

    By dull, I mean Eldritch IV is almost the same in effect as the old Cosmic. Which sounds better? Phlebotomizing or Bleed V? Incandescent or Solar III? What's more interesting, hitting an opponent for 4d4 lightning damage each swing, or CAUSING AN ENORMOUS LIGHTNING BOLT TO STRIKE FOR 600 every now and again?

    Then there's all the critical old stuff like healing amp 20 or 30 bracers with a useful suffix; invisibility clickies; spell proofing items - the list could go on.

    The new stuff that is good is mostly stuff we would have got anyway with any increase of max loot level (Resistance 9-11), or is one of the two extremely good affixes, Seeking or Deadly.


    Also, if I had a kitten for every Ghostbane weapon I have had drop, I could fill an entire swimming pool with dead cats.
    I don't have a zerging problem.

    I'm zerging. That's YOUR problem.

    History teaches us this. One does not need insider knowledge to realize this fact.
