    Nah, this hotfix will not bring back the cogs saga givers. That doozy was discovered after we'd already pulled the build for Wednesdays hotfix.

    Please go through the players inventory and remove rare raid items that they didn't earn in a fair way. I am tired of the f... Cheaters. You should also do something about those who have like over 7 milion reaoer xp just because they farmed Amber Temple as casters, solo, earning 5k reaper xp per 2-3 minutes. It is your responsibility to keep the game fair. Half of the server knows who cheats/abuses bugs and you cannot find them and make them take responsibility???
    I won't pay a cent and i will convince all the players i know to abandon this gane if you don't take care of those who cheat.

    Will this hotfix make it so Shards Of Mechanus Filigrees will drop? (They currently aren't dropping at all for anyone and I'm getting everyone I can to help find a piece of that set, over 7 hours in and still no luck)

    Ironically, it's the cheaters that abandon the game. They have to have everything right now, dupe, exploit, and what not, to make that happen. Then they get bored. They kill the boss 30 seconds faster now, they have more ingredients then you could spend in a lifetime.

    No, it's not us that abandon. It's them. We keep soldiering on. Keep posting LFM's. Keep joining others on loot hunts. Keep playing.

    Dupers/exploiters don't directly impact anyone else. But they sure as Sharn don't group like they would if they still had unsatisfied hungar and desire. Indirectly, they are the fat cats sunbathing while the rest of us wait and wait for our LFM to fill.

    Come have fun with us? We ask. Nah, I'm good. -They answer, as they gaze upon their fat hot loot.

    How are you supposed to check a player account and determine whether the reaper XP or items were obtained in a fair way or used an exploit to get it? You create a LOT more problems if you punish innocent people in order to get those to abuse the game rules. What would happen if you removed e. g. 3 million reaper XP on all players who have reaper wings. You hit some who got reaper XP via Amber Temple farming, but you also get those who have played the game for hours every day without using the exploit.

    How can you call getting raid loot in the Sharn saga reward for cheating? Sharn has been out for just a few hours and players don't know what SSG have intended for them to get or not. Maybe you were supposed to have the minor artifacts as Saga rewards. It was not like everyone got them either. It seems that it wasn't and therefore you get a hotfix to fix it. However, it's completely unfair to blame people as cheaters for taking what was offered to them as a reward.

    Sealed in Amber is another example. Players are experts in finding fast ways to finish quests. It's not like they bent the rules to get the reaper xp so fast. It was more a flaw in the quest design where Madam Eva was present at the start of the quest and then players knew where to go to finish the quest fast. This is related to poor quest design. E. g. you could finish the quest before the end fight and shortcuts were possible. It's more SSG's fault they spent so long to fix the quest design flaw. Players have made SSG aware of this way of finishing the quest a long time ago and it wasn't reacted upon. In U42 this has been dealt with and the quest will be done as intended because the shortcuts are gone.

    You have many quests with safe spots, jump shortcuts and so on. Is it cheating to use such things? I would say no. It requires quite a bit of play time to find out where monsters won't attack. In some quests you can bypass part of the quest by jumping to certain locations. Pretty hard to plug all such holes since any place where you can jump you can get to locations others can't.

    Actually in some quests you're required to make a lot of jumping to get to certain chests. You will notice tha the Sharn quest Smash and Burn is such a quest. There you have to be Super Mario to get named loot. Players can't know whether that is unintended or not. Maybe the quest was supposed to drop a ladder if you solved the difficult puzzles in there, but you can get to the chest by jumping instead.

    E. g. in Maze of madness in Gianthold you have a jump shortcut. However, I've seen in pug's that you often spend more time waiting for people to make the jump than you would have if you moved the normal way. You also lose trap bonuses etc. So the jump bypass is only useful if all know about it and can make all the jumps required. So it's not really a problem.

    However, I do agree that SSG should be hard on cheaters. With cheaters I mean people who can dupe items, get infinite XP from certain actions etc. However, SSG have been good at addressing such issues fast.

    We need to have a server roll back. It's the only way to be sure. Nice, fair, even and equal for everyone- Dial the servers back to February 28th, 2006.

    I don't think you can call someone a cheater for taking look that they're granted by the game

    It's a bug that should.get fixed, but that's on SSG, not on the players. People aren't cheating if the game just up and hands them something.
    No one in the world ever gets what they want
    And that is beautiful

    Sadly, I don't have access to that feed and we opened so far ahead of schedule that those that do have access are not yet in. I made the determination that it was better to get the servers open with limited messaging than to simply hold them closed for longer.

    This is WAI - as stated in the loot previews, a selection of the Artifacts are available in the Elite/True Elite Saga rewards for the main saga at a 25%/50% chance.

    I would like to file a complaint on the basis that you are uncalled for to early. We can't have that. People have planed their day around you estimated downtime PLUS XY and you make it MINUS XY. Please compensate players with free xp elixiers and +8 tomes to make up for the gained play time they cannot use as they are out in town doing grocery shopping.

    In the U42 post you seemed to state they drop in the raid as well:

    "For clarity, the Artifacts available in Sharn are only found in that particular Saga on higher Legendary difficulties and in the raids. The Saga also contains Tomes, Renown, and XP - as well as Sharn Crafting Materials - but we're always open to suggestions on what could make rewards more reward-y"

    On a related note several in that post who received an option of 4 artifacts all stated that members of their group received the exact 4 specific artifacts out of the 10 (or so) that are available. If so this is a bug, correct?
