    I agree with a lot of peeps here... I have no reason to run CITW even if I were to enjoy epic content enough to make it up to the level where I can run it. All my characters got the loot they'd want out of it with the free raider's boxes. That and it requires a LOOOOOOT of flagging to run a not very fun raid. I haven't even run Twilight Forge ever and I know I'd enjoy it more than CITW. It's just not fun for me.

    This is true IF everyone is fast enough at the fire levers. Some groups do need more people/pets for that part. We did it with three, but we had a monk who was fast enough to help pull to cover for the slow cleric and still get up in time to get launched. : )

    you can technically do it without a pet but it's very tricky

    What I want is a vid of someone blind shooting the two top levers from the door to that hall.

    YOu're talking about the split hallway? The one with the str-wis-range things that need clicked? Any kind of range will do it, I keep a returning throwing something on all my toons for moments just like that. Also people with a really good jump just jump up there, pull them, drop, and hit the other two. This door can be done with two if both people can fulfill both the strength and wis and carry a returner.

    I rarely see anyone posting or responding in trade channel, if responding they usually just trolling you a bit then move on.

    DDO has the potential for a really good economy, but

    * Bindings
    * Named items always almost being a better choice than RandGen
    * Crafting being mostly trivial in between named gear
    * Augmenting
    * Loot drops are fairly heavy, you can end up with 2 inventory slot of trash in a few runs of 10-15minute quests.
    * Shard Auction
    * They almost completely killed the "oh what i just found" feeling, that occasionally showed up some ioun stones and scarabs,..etc. But these "rare" drops are now seem to be abandoned.
    have an NCP sell shards 20k for 1 and make them unbound. and you will see an economy.
    Turbine didn't want to outright sell plat but they wanted to get rid of the 3rd party pp sellers they used shards to do that. now all they have to do is make the shards unbound to get the economy going again and offer a way to exchange plate for shards 20k pp for 1 shard seems fair to me but that can be adjusted I'm sure many would even pay 50k per shard (this would put the value of the highest guild ship at 2billion pp a reasonable fee considering most people do not even have 2mil pp at any given time.
    really don't understand why shards are bound other then to force players to buy from turbine so they can give it back to turbine in exchange for an item another player found.

    Several characters on Sarlona all starting with "Rand" in the Guild "Guardians of House Cannith". My main four characters are Randowl (18 rogue 2 artificer mechanic - hope to go back to DC casting some day), Randslar (Bard 14 / Fighter 4 / Rogue 2 Swashbuckler), Randek (Druid CC Caster 17/Fvs 3) and Randomall (Rogue 20 assassin).

    You seem to understand exactly why they are.

    Yep, 1 person can do all 3, just do range last.

    Unfortunately, because that raid sucks. It is literally the worst raid in the game.

    It's always a shame when the hammer of poor design choices smashes the fun of player tactical adaptation.

    It is the raid not doom to DDO. VoN always fills fast. Chrono fills fast. Deathwyrm fills fast. FoT sometimes fills. What do all of those have in common? People want something from them in the case of VoN and echrono they give good XP. People want shadow scales and philg from Deathwyrm and FoT drops COMs. Citw doesn't offer anything so it doesn't get run much like Lord of Blades.

    Brought this up a few months back on the PC side and Cordovan popped in and said he hasn't noticed any lack of interest or slow to fill CitW's and then most of us related the same things being posted in this thread and we got no further official comment or discussion which seems to be code for "we're not going to talk about it no matter what you say, ask or beg".

    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?

    Thanks for relaying that. Would you mind pointing it out again? Maybe pointing them at this thread.

    Like others have said, during prime time, I can usually get one of the other raids going, but its nearly (nearly) impossible to get a CITW at anytime other than a weekend AND primetime.

    thanks!
