    Default Devs: Please Consider Upgrading End Rewards from Sharn, Carnival and Sentinels!

    You rightly Upgraded STK, Waterworks, Catacombs, Tangleroot, Delera's etc. End Rewards {Yes Some items got missed out - Specifically Rune Arms}.

    You did a Great Job on the 3 Barrel Rare Drops and Weapons {not so Great on the Corsair's Set I'm afraid}.

    Slightly related request:

    It used to be that chain end rewards had lootgen items with lower-than-normal minimum levels.

    Now, they're no better than any other lootgen. So what's the point?

    Suggestion: all lootgen in chain end reward lists automatically have Master Craftsmanship for lower ML. With a decent chance for Wondrous Craftsmanship.

    All perfectly reasonable.

    Turbine should be fixing pretty much *all* named loot because there are now only a handful of items which you could say are considerably better than the random loot which now exists.

    A minimum should be Paragon and Epic updates to all weapons with no Adjustment to ML. And items should all get at least 1 Augment Slot without adjusting the ML. Serious consideration should be to add Master Craft and even Wondrous Craft to all named equipment.

    Following this, there should then be a serious look at the buffs and effects on the weapons and items with the only question to be asked: "Is this really a good combination of effects which will have the playerbase eager to track down and get this piece of equipment?"

    I would like to see upgrades to the loot lists of the following areas as well:

    Tangleroot - for running a lot of quests from lv.3 to lv. 7 w/o in between rewards, the loot list is even less than meh.
    Shan-To-Kor - the series brings good XP and all, but the end reward is less than rewarding.

    Both were upgraded recently!

    Yes Many of the Upgrades weren't great and Visor of the Flesh Render Guards didn't get an upgrade at ALL!

    BUT

    Let's get the Devs to Upgrade the remaining packs first {then by all means go back to items in each pack that need a bit of help.}.

    Packs that Haven't been upgraded at All Since MotU
    --------------------------------------------------

    Phiarlan Carnival
    Sentinels of Stormreach
    Chronoscope/DA
    Red Fens
    Vault of Night
    Lordsmarch {f2p & p2p!}
    Madness Chains
    Vale of Twilight
    Reaver's Refuge
    Inspired Quarter
    Amrath!

    I'm working from the bottom up in this thread BUT Almost ALL of these Packs need serious Loot Upgrades {OK Not Vale!}.

    Carnival and Sentinels Heroics are particularly hurting currently thanks to all the changes elsewhere {Even The Antique Greataxe could do with a Red Slot! And the likes of Jid'z Tet'ka have been hit especially hard by recent changes.}.

    I like the idea of making named loot more relevant!

    If it´s only for the augment slots, a simple SQL statement would be sufficient. All the named loot has at least one corresponding slo, job done.

    With all the new masterwork, paragon and epic items they would be well advised to take a closer look on named loot from my said packs too, because wirh the notable Visor hte rest simply stinks.

    at one time I used to equip the gear from those packs because it was better than the random loot. whenever I TR now and need the room pulling stuff from my cache, ive sold to the vendor piece by piece because random loot is now better than the gear from those packs. a lot of the named loot in heroics isn't worth equipping anymore.

    Biggest Issue with Tangleroot = Visor NOT Guaranteed End Reward! {and for goodness sake give it a Yellow Slot so it can double up as a Feather Fall or Underwater Action item just like every other Clickie with a Yellow Slot!}.

    Augment Slots actually aren't much use on a Clickie or Swap in item anyway atm - Until the Devs put in More Types of Augments this won't change!


    Delera's Loot Upgrades have on the whole been a bit Meh too But you didn't mention Delera's did you...And we all know why...Voice is a Guaranteed Drop!
    And let's face it...The ONE other item in that chain that people actually farm - CARNIFEX - Didn't even get an Upgrade {A Red Slot wouldn't be OP you know Devs - Especially Not with the Ridiculous Min Levels STILL on Ruby Augments!}

    STK actually got a Pretty Large Upgrade over-all as before there wasn't a Single Useful Item in the End Reward List even for a Newbie who'd just left the Harbour!
    Yes it's still weak BUT we are talking About Lvl 3 Loot Here!

    If it wasn't for the fact that Catacombs Loot has ALWAYS been much better than STK's and ALSO got an Upgrade {I'm More than a Bit Miffed at the - Marguerite's Necklace - though - A Yellow Slot would have been a much better choice for this than a Worthless Colourless!}
    AND
    The silliness of the - Ring of Feathers - NOT getting an Augment Slot!
    STK would be OK.



    BUT Coming back to Carnival and Sentinels:

    1) Chronoscope is released

    2) Cannith Crafting Comes out

    3) Random Gen Min Levels are reduced

    4) 3 Barrel Cove gets a Massive Loot Upgrade!

    5) STK, Catacombs, Tangleroot, Delera's, Threnal, Sands AND a Bunch of Older F2P Quests ALL get Upgraded Named Loot!

    Each of these has significantly reduced the Impact of the Previous too {Except for 3 Barrel which Still has some of the Most desirable loot in the game!} leading to Chronoscope and Cannith Crafting also needing looking at!

    This thread is about Quest Loot though so I'll leave Cannith Crafting to Other threads.

    Regarding STK - lv. 5 endquest, lv. 3 loot. Same basically for tangleroot. The loot barely better than random items and with the masterwork items available at that level even not as good as some random loot. Now, if you want to upgrade the old adventure packs (for which you get a /signed from me any time, I think of your proposals as very good, actually), I would like to see an upgrade for some packs that officially gained some slots as well. The loot is not done with select * from loottable do include colorless slot.

    I did not mention Deleras, you are right. Because, you named it. And I did not include Threnal, for the same reason. But if loot gets a rework, like they did with 3BC some time ago (Corsair´s even w/o slots is not too bad for lv. 5-7), most loot needs more than adding a slot. This would just translate to masterwork items, not to named loot from a whole adventure series like STK, Tangleroot or whatever pack we paid TP for.

    Oki Doke:

    Shan To Kor
    ------------

    Now I'm using the DDOWiki here as I have no intention of farming STK till my brain hurts to figure out what's got what with the upgrades!

    Unless Stated Otherwise Upgrade Min Lvl Requirement to 4

    Berserker Bracers - DR 1/- / Intimidate 3 according to the Wiki - Hopefully these have actually already been upgraded BUT here's my Suggestion:
    -Change the DR to 3/-
    -Change the Intim to +7
    -Add a Blue Slot

    Cloven Jaw Warbeads - Constitution +2 supposedly - So basically Random Gen Loot!
    Suggestion:
    -Add Concentration 7
    -Add Yellow Slot

    Gatewarden's Girdle - Fort Save 2, Light Fortification
    Suggestion:
    -Remove the Fort Save 2
    -Add Blue Slot with Resistance 2 Slotted
    -Slot Light Fort into Second Blue Slot

    Gloves of the Poet - Heal 3, Perform 3
    Suggestion:
    -Change to Heal 7, Perform 7
    -Add Colourless Slot with Cha 2 Slotted

    Ring of Dragon's Breath - Pointless Clickie
    Suggestion:
    -Add Elemental Resist 10
    -Add CL 5 Fireball 3/Day
    -Add CL 5 Lightning Bolt 3/Day
    -Add CL 5 Acid Blast 3/Day
    -Add CL 7 Cone of Cold 1/Day
    MIN LVL STAYS THE SAME!!!!!

    Surefoot Boots - Balance 3, Move Silently 3
    Suggestion:

    I normally don't agree with players who ask for more of anything but I think your right the loot is pretty low budget in those quests I usually take renown.

    While I'm definitely in favour of improving these items, I have to disagree completely with increasing the MLs or adding augment slots. With a lot of low level named loot, the *only* real drawing point is the lower than normal ML, raising that removes that benefit.

    And augments... god I hate those. They are yet another thing that could have been worthwhile if the planners (not the devs) had a brain among them. Please do not ruin more low level loot with augment slots like you did with the Tangleroot stuff.

    I used the BTA items in Sharn to make BTA crafted items.

    While I don't see myself needing too much more of these things others may want to do the same so I would like it if the BTA random items given as end rewards remained as such so others can easily and quickly craft TR twink gear that doesn't clog up inventory or need to be made for each and every toon.
    BONGO FURY - Ghallanda - Thingfish - Wizard, Diuni - Ninja, Gheale - Angel, Dullknife - Tank, Noodlefish - Gimp, Jaquaby - Treacherous and other gimps I won't cop to.
