This all to placate the epic hard players. Epic hard and its super easy, boring non challenging faster experience per minute. Lets throw yet another bone to epic hard. Yeah, boringsauce.
    You sound like you know what you are talking about. Do you have a guide I can follow?

    You know, if you are going to attempt to troll the forum's main trollmeister, you'd best do it with an alternate ID that doesn't have comments on it where you admit your FvS needs a hjealbot when doing solo content.

    And yeah, I'm still chuckling about that one even as I type...

    Failing a trap lets you know that they have a higher DC than what your DD was at the time, and that was information sufficient for your trapping thread.

    -monkarchers that die so many times they give up
    -Pure rogue with about 400 HP not die once and get respectable kill count.

    And so on.

    You can have a variety of working builds, of course most people are lazy and just use "the thing everyone knows works" and if player skills/understanding is lacking, the result will not be that great anyway.
    I agree with you!

    It's all about player skills, I really hate how people determine you are pro or not by just kill counts. Yes, it's depends.. maybe you have really decent character. It's not always the case tho.
    Some people just stealing kills, purposely or accidently.. I usually solo on my shiradi fvs, I have done many ee (without a hire). I would like to say EEs are not easy, some are.. yes, but some are nope lol..
    Well, fvs.. what can I say. Even tho, I solo'd all eveningstar chain 1 - 3 on EE. Gianthold (cabal, cry for help, foundation, trail etc).. I used to zerg and shiradi fvs are perfect match.

    I have seen some insanely OP builds too.. it's always multi class for melee, ranged. I'm very critical to myself and game system. I never judge people just because they are noobs. I just don't like how people lie.. They say, oh yeah I have 69 DC on necro, I can solo any EEs, it's so easy etc.. It's not easy at all. Just so much pressure and hatred when pugging. I don't want to make this thread too long, but lets all admit.
    End game EEs are not easy, 90% of players are childish. We need to respect those who actually care, smart and good at game.

    If I ate mcdonalds or kfc everyday for 365 days, Id end up anorexic.

    600-800 calories ain't much to live on. There's also far worse food you could be eating like mystery meat curries in Asia from restaurants with non existent food hygiene knowledge or practice.

    Oh good grief, if you are going to use a food analogy, at least use a good one.

    Wanting things to be Accessible is like Low Hanging Fruit. It grows on trees, so it's cheap, easy, and everyone can enjoy fruit without needing to process or cook it first.

    The real thing here, is that there needs to be more incentive/reward for running hard, or even normal, other then "Your build sucks too much to run elite"

    Right now, there seems to be this epidemic of nerd raged obsession with Elite being the only difficulty, and really, that is not healthy for the game.

    So what you're saying is, if we give you free food you'll stop posting?

    Maybe you should watch Fat Head , the truth is, "Supersize me" was not a Documentary, it was a stunt, borderline a hoax.

EE has been tilted so ridiculously far up for the tiny fraction of top builds that if you're NOT in the top build, you're a complete piker. Trash hits (non-crit!) for 300 points? Well the only solution is to not get hit ever. So you either have to kite or stack the living hell out of Dodge/Displacement/Incorporeal. Number of viable builds drops as monsters get ever-increasingly preposterous amounts of damage and health. It stopped being fun a long time ago. I don't see it changing any time soon, because the amount of work involved (rebalancing all monsters, rebalancing all saving throws, nerfing the living **** out of Shiradi and Master's Blitz, fixing destinies that nobody uses, purging the game of all the lootgen +10 stat items, etc) is something that Turbine simply isn't willing to do.

    I used to run EEs. But I stopped because of the pure tedium. EH is much more fun, varied, and interesting. As an added bonus, I don't need to worry about being insta-gibbed because I had a quarter second of lag and got critically hit through 150% fortification for 900 damage.
    QFT.

    Literally, this problem (or collection of them) should be shot straight to the top of Turbine's priority list over anything and everything else. The Enhancement Pass was supposed to bring more flexibility and diversity in builds players make, all I've seen is the exact opposite to accommodate for IMO far too unbalanced EEs. EE combat has taken a turn for the worse, regardless of the quests themselves and the abundance of a handful of builds or combos composing 90-95% of EE groups should be a dead giveaway. Turbine needs to boost the classes and enhancement trees being neglected (Barbarians, Pallys beyond a splash, Arti, Bard, the list goes on...) and take a long and hard look at how they build EEs in the future...

    Well, like yesterday we had FOT where people charged stormreaver. and dropped him when TO was at 5% and then proceeded to kill TO once stormreaver was up.. twice.. until people gave up. And yes gotten the ring thing way too often too.
    thanks man, though to be honest I have to use up my 20LR on my haggle bard to make him useful in EE's outside of buffs,CC and heals...............im stingy like that.......want to use it to get a past life I dont really want to do if I ever do that..........but by then the thing might be broken knowing this game.

    Makes you think the problem is not with the difficulty nor with the build, but the person playing the character, doesn't it.

    This is just another case of "If I can't do it, nobody can."

    It is the player that is the problem.

    can you choose anything on their menu? They do have some fruit and veg stuff? I don't really like MC'ds and KFC is only something I can stomach once in a blue moon, I ate whatever I felt like and had no problems, and as much as I felt like, good thing for me was I ofen felt like healthy stuff as well, and there is a limit to how much junk I can eat and not feel sick, also I was very active. Some people though its like a black hole...........some women I know are the worst they where all slim and trim in highschool but man once they started college/uni, at highschool they only liked junk food, they go to college, stop playing sports their metabolism changes maybe? start drinking and its down hill, and it seems worse and harder to get back into being more active the longer you put it off, and to keep it up.

    Its a whole lifestyle thing I guess.

    And this would prove what? That's right, nothing!

    You would continue to believe whatever myth suited your fancy, so why don't you do it if matters to you. In the end, if you want to believe something like Supersize Me is real, I lose nothing, the truth is out there, if you want to ignore it, that is your problem, I am not going to make it mine.
