    What server are you on? I like this raid and will gladly run it with you 2x/week if you are on Khyber.

    If you are doing an etr soon you can leave the reward list unclaimed and it will regenerate upon ETR unless that changed recently.

    Shortly after getting a few epic past lifes when ETR was new I tried and succeeded in soloing the raid after narrowing escaping death when she was enraged at the end - and torc dropped for me. I never took a screen shot so asked the defense channel how to take a screen shot. Instead someone gave me the command that closes the client and when I relogged I was out of the raid and lost my torc lol. Took me another year to get it. Glad they put in the reward lists.

    Having to sit on one Heroic life for 2 months is the hardest part of this.

    the combination of no runes and no raid timer bypass makes ADQ the hardest leveling gear to obtain. Way harder to pick up than any gear you’ll put back in the bank in 8 hours has any right to be.

    Parked for 20x HE runs didn't get it off drops or end list. Decided to just run it each time I reincarnated and to never park again; got it a few lives later, probably a couple runs per life. RNG is a cruel cruel mistress in there. Good luck on eventually getting yours =)

    I feel your pain. I think it took me either 60 or 80 runs to get mine back in the day, can't remember exactly.

    Just if you happen not to know what a Torc actually is : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torc

    It's nice to see someone putting this kind of ... "jewellery" ... into a game.
    The current Asterix comic is also about a torc.

    At first, in my opinion, there should be a certain point where a player gets the item he wants from a quest.
    Like in the newer raids you can buy any raid item for the runes.
    Therefore also the old raids should be updated to this new better system.
    And for normal quests I would e.g. love if you get a full list of named items after you complete a quest 8 times then your desired item is guaranteed at least at the point the chest is ransacked.

    But to be maybe helpful for some of you.
    You might not know that your list of raid items after 20 completions are rerolled after an ER.
    So you only have to ER one time instead of doing the raid 20 times again for a second chance to roll the item you want.

    I agree on this.

    RNG can be very harsh, and with chest ransack, you can have to ransack one quest each week for months while hunting for certain named.

    One example is that I ransacked Bonegrinder 5 times while hunting for heroic light armor.

    Finally got it once Flimsy changed quest to have 2 chests with named. (THANK YOU!!! You sawed me LOTS of grief.)

    Yes, exactly such frustrating situations should be removed.
    I dont want to have items rain like candy on me but I want to have it done at a certain point for sure and not only if I have luck.

    The Torc... I got mine at the reward list from my 100 times.
    Don't give up, it will eventually drop.
    And although I didn't test myself, I have heard that the reward list will reroll again after server restart.
    Can somebody near 20th complete confirm it?

    No, but it gets rerolled when you dont take the reward and ER (Epic Reincarnation)
