    Default Nerfed party favor rate?

    We used to get 8 party favors for doing the anniversary mission 5 levels over. Getting 4 for at level, 6 for 5 levels over. Disappointing.

    Edit: Yes, killed the 4 devs.

    Also score of 6 giving a pay out of 6???

    Patch notes 41.3 stated payout is now 150% of score, a 50% increase from last year.

    I ran it at level and got 4 after killing all of the devs. I may run it once on my mains to get the first time bonus but not likely to run it again.

    Lichabel is currently broken and not rewarding any points. You can skip Lichabel and still get 6 favors.

    OK SO: Here's what's going on.

    Our intent was that you would get 50% more ingredients per point/star than last year - For a total of 8 on a normal, at-level run, and 12 on a fully optimized run.

    However: We ran into two issues this morning: That it wasn't granting the 50% extra, and the new Lichabel boss isn't granting a Point like it should. That leads to the numbers you see above.

    As of right now (QA is still verifying), we've adjusting things on the Live servers so you get 2 ingredients (at-level) for every Point; this means on an at-level run you'd get 8, and for a fully optimized run you'd get 12. You still won't get any extra ingredients for the Lichabel boss for the time being.

    Hopefully that makes things a little better for everyone! Apologies for the confusion.
    We don't only build for the builds that exist.
    We don't only build for the builds that are good right now.

    The fact that some changes are necessary is not diminished by the fact that other necessary changes have not happened yet.

    You can run level cap quests for epic xp, but you can't run non-level cap quests for RXP when you're capped.

    New coffee might be worth getting for the end fight of a raid

    One gives +75% hate and the other gives -75% hate. I don't like the coffee in general, but it's just for the duration of the end fight and it's pretty handy.

    Think they had that last year. I got the -75% hate generation last year on my Rogues.

    Thank you!

    Edit. I believe that there will be a lot of vermin in Sharn.
    And Lynnabel must be good at throwing daggers.

    Do you mean running the challenge five levels above character level and getting all of the stars?

    For example, if the character's level is 10, then running the challenge on level 15 difficulty.

    Yes, kill the objective named devs and complete to max score (8), and do 5 levels over for an extra 50% (12).

    To add to this for those that don't know. All challenge type events (night revels, crystal cove) and the eveningstar and cannith challenges work in a similar fashion. Running it up to five levels above your character level will increase the number of mats you get. Each star objective also increases the mats.
