    Default New reapers?

    Any info on the new reapers?

    I'm usually duoing reapers with a friend, so going 6 skulls@level tends to be quite painful. We did do a Trial by fire (which is really easy for its level) at six skulls and encountered two new types "Despair" and Vegneance" (a prime candidate for a name change right there). Vegneance did us in pretty harshly and we had to cake to continue. The Despair had a cool aura but didn't accomplish anything.

    By the release notes I had the impression that there would be additional reaper types even on lower difficulty settings. I haven't seen any of those; what's the status with low skull reapers?

    R10 Heroic Cogs. I can add Doom reaper to the list. I have screenshots at home, but I am at work right now. If I remember right, it has an aura about it, but I do not remember what it does. Also, one of them, maybe Doom, uses binding chains like Suulomades.

    Seen Doom and Despair in an 8-skull.

    There are new Reapers - some that appear in all difficulties, and some that appear in Reaper Skull 6 and above.

    "There are so many people running around and so many LFMs that it actually doesn't feel like a single player game." - Some guy on HCL

    Also what the live servers would be like with server merges or cross-server grouping.

    Despair reaper has a permanent aura circle effect. It has a buff giving it a boost to it's saving throws.
    It kept causing a message "you grow weaker as your enemies grow stronger" but I have no idea why enemies were "growing stronger" or what those effects were since I had a cluster of mobs to deal with. AND those enemies were only actually getting weaker due to me reducing their hps / killing them off.

    The reaper had some stat buffs (fox cunning, something else) but that coulda been some trash caster buffing it .. or not.

    R6.

    Vengeance Reaper is a spellcaster of power similar to Famines that "explodes" on death, buffing every enemy around them in some way - they get a white glow above their heads that's obviously a buff, but I have no idea what it does.

    Seen on R5, but not anywhere lower.

    Was kindly told :
    Veng on death AE buff nearby mob's melee power a lot.
    Doom does a heavy dot.

    I thought the idea was that some of the new reapers would be at any skull level, while some would be in 6+ skulls only. Yes, they appear in 6+ skulls. However my experience is that I have also consistently seen new reapers in 5-skull runs, but not seen any of them in 1-4 skulls.

    Any confirmation of a new reaper type in 4 skulls or below?

    I've done a fair amount R1-R3 in the last little bit and I haven't seen any of the new reapers in that range.
