    I want to know this too. Or is this the 'mini-expansion' stuff that was mentioned earlier this year?

    The thread title literally says Adventure Pack.

    In An Element of Chaos it's hard to see where the path to the Deeper Chambers starts because of the weird random spike thing in the way:

    Slippery ice platforms and electric water? Awesome.

    Ik'thanor the devourer is weirdly tiny and also appears coyly in the corner instead of making a suitably dramatic entrance.

    In Seizing the Dawn, I came across what is triggering as a secret door, but it's a.) open, and b.) locked? Doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose of having a secret door?

    Completed Beautiful Nightmare on Legendary R1.

    I'll put this simply, quests that take place in two realities are not my favorite quests, and after one completion this ranks absolutely last in that category for me. Yuck, not my bag of tea.

    The handholds to climb from the main level to the first platform, didn't appear at first. Spent a couple minutes jumping at the wall before I stuck, once I started climbing they appeared. They are not labeled if you backspace while looking at them.

    Spent twenty minutes looking for the puzzle room on the top floor. Its like I just couldn't see the door way. Knew there had to be something up there but couldn't see it nor was backspace pulling up anything.

    Did the mobs have any hp and why reuse hill giant for the last two statues?

    Very frustrating and not straight forward.

    Ran all 3 quests on HE. Not too many bugs that I saw, did have one of the blue slaads bug in the kithri quest. It came out of the floor in the final cave and I could not damage or kill it spell wise. Nightmare quest was as Goldy said, a nightmare...trying to find the way through and switching back and forth between realities...yuck!! Then did them all on Leg R1 and no problems whatsoever.

    Why remove trap boxes? You have a perfectly unique and thematic mechanic in the game, it seems a waste to desert it.

    Unhappy

    Quick summary :

    1) An Element of Chaos - looks like one of the worst half-baked F2P quest. And yet another "Simon Says" puzzle. Why do you have to put it in EVERY quests pack after you've invented it ?! That's irritating at best.

    2) Seizing the Dawn - please, for the love of god, would you finally STOP with the reusing ?! You've created a unique puzzle for "The Dryad and the Demigod" ? Leave it be there !!! Don't touch it ! Ever !
    Especially after Feywild that alone looks like you've took every monster and puzzle ever created for DDO and mix them together. (There is even that walking windmill, copied from the "Old Baba's Hut" !)
    I can understand it's impossible to avoid reusing completely, but at least don't do it so frequently and so obvious.

    3) Beautiful Nightmares - "Spies in the House" + "Through a Mirror Darkly". And another ancient puzzle...
    Well, among those 3, this one looks quite nice.
    Couldn't finish it though. That "final challenge" has never been begun (or ended ?).

    I liked it, it gives you a chance to practice the puzzles without running the raid. Every puzzle type in this game except the big Mastermind in The Reaver's Fate occurs in multiple places.

    Which quest are you talking about? I didn't have any problems finding the trap boxes in Element of Chaos.

    Elemental Chaos:
    really cool looking, especially the final room with all the elements. Really liked the feel of that part. The feel of the start of the quest, including the simon says, not so much.
    A couple of notes though:
    - In the final room, the slaad appearing just before the "burning ice" was stuck in "appear animation"
    - Is the burning fire supposed to do something?
    - Extreme cold wasnt doing anything to my toon (maybe too high cold resistance but still I mention)
    - Extreme cold stuck on me no matter where I went, including out of the quest
    - The boss appear to the side and barely noticeable
    - Slippery ice on a warlock that floats above ground and has FoM. Why I was slipping? Immunity to slippery surfaces anyone??
    - Secret door to optional boss was automatically found by a warlock with no search, no enhacement, no true seeing, without searching, just by approaching the wall

    Which monsters are from other places? Afaik, the monsters in feywild are largely drawn from dnd lore.

    Also the windmill seems very much inspired by Don Quixote, and they happened to need to reuse the Hut idea for how the windmill is moving around and attacking stuff.

    Seizing the Dawn:
    - the drop at the start feels really empty
    - The first "rocky" stairs lead to nothing, just some random climbing without even a collectible?
    - Where the water elemental is, there's the cavern to the right which does not appear on the map and has a *locked* door underground. Is this supposed to be a seced door?
    - The water elemental was a champion, dropped a chest, the chest was underground

    Nightmare:

    Pretty confusing quest, I did not understand how it went through, I basically power through it. Some notes though:
    - The final door can be jumped to by some tricky jumping on the walls. At first I thought "wow, this is cool I must do it". In the end, there was actually a door in the corner. That door is very difficult to see
    - Since i went everywhere tryying to figure it out, it seems impossible I missed a pet (yes, I did pet the dog). Are you sure every pet is there?

    I did not find the last pet either.
