    Default Well, well, well.

    Some of you may be pleased and others...not so much.

    The Feareater looks like it will stay nerfed. [EDIT: See Lynnabel's comment below]

    A better solution regarding the number of runes for a piece of Feytwisted raid loot would have been to require the non-Feytwisted version of the raid item + 1250 runes, not 2500 runes outright.

    Would you believe I actually got the correct effect for this working no less than an hour ago? What's on Lamannia is a cross between my fix (which wasn't working) and a panic-fix (which would have set its min level to 8 and also wasn't working), please ignore! :P

    Ok, so Feareater will be useful when Update 49 is released. Thank you.

    Any comment on the # of runes needed for the Feytwisted versions of the raid loot and the suggested alternative?

    Nope!

    The cost thing I agree, having the option of basic item plus runes would be nice though with 2 chests that can drop runes & named loot, that at least puts it into the same level of grind as VON, HOX & ravenloft raids, all of which are tougher & more time consuming than Dryad & the Demigod.

    Incidentally, an optional to destroy the 2 mounds at the end of Baba's Hut to get another raid loot chest would be a nice addition

    I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was, now what's it is weird and scary to me.

    Happy with the 2500 rune cost. Thanks for adding!

    At 500 damage, it's saving 1 hit to scare an already dying creature to death?

    Talk about adding insult to injury.

    The cost of raid items in general is too high, but at least we'll be able to acquire the twisted stuff with runes.

    I think it's fine, it's a direct upgrade to the old system of running a raid 20x in a life to have a chance at the item you want.

    • doesn't require all runs to be the same life
    • 20 normal runs get you slightly more runes than you need for an item, so you have a similar "20 runs for an item" if doing normal except you don't need to stay on one life for them
    • 15 hard runs get slightly more runes than needed for an item, similarly to normal
    • 10 elite+ runs get you exactly the necessary runes for an item

    I mean, you should be required to put in more than the 8 runs to ransack in order to get an item for free right?

    Note: the list above assumes 1 chest with runes, since that's how the majority of cap raids work

    Fey rune trade-in seems fine. The whole point of raid rune trade ins were to be able to get an item you couldn't pull in the raid. If you need that + runes...

    Feareater seems a bit off though, maybe if it WERE a lv 8 augment lol, and greater feareater for epic?

    It's not just fear eater that is absurdly nerfed

    It's also the:

    Legendary Lucid Dreams

    Legendary Necronomicannon

    Volley, Arbalest of the Damned

    Also yeah, the price should be 1250 plus the non feytwisted version of the item, if programmable this solution could even allow for the transferring of the mythic and reaper bonuses from the base item to the feytwisted version in which would sufficiently bridge the gaps regarding the acquisition rate making more sense!

    Wow, people really don't read.. Lynnabel literally said in the 2nd post (and OP was amended too) to disregard the feareater change because he's gotten it working properly now.

    I do like the idea of that being a greater version & having a lesser, ML8 version available too though - not as powerful as vorpal which is available even on lower level gear, but as an augment that can be added to a number of items for heroic levelling it'd be a pretty tasty addition.

    I'm confused about the confusion.

    Lynn said it is working, but isn't going to be changed from 500 (literally said in 4th post). Which is what people are saying is pretty worthless. Because it is.

    I'm happy to be wrong, maybe I don't read.

    That post was answering the question about runes, seems obvious

    Oh, I guess it's obvious. Where it is one of two things.

    Still, I'll believe it when I see it.

    I cannot begin to express my disappointment in pulling this thread up and not seeing a picture of 3 holes in the ground

    Question

    Do you mean portable holes ?

    It is still useful when on favor runs... especially if main damage will be nerfed in an upcoming "balance", sorry, "lag reduction" update.
    You nerfed my monks, throwers, dailies and alchemists.
    I hardly play anymore, found a better hobby.
    Thank You!
