To steal it has to be taken without consent, the only money brad receives if from those people who still enjoy the game, if you do not enjoy and are bored, nobody is forcing u to continue to play :)

*wants to see the blocked off part in east section of earthshaker dungeon made into something*

For some reason it really bugs me when you can walk around an area but not get into the middle hehe

FLISK: talking about updates, real updates, after u get top lvl/sk what can u do? go back to find some "new" area? im talking about places for lvl75+, why not let us get more exp? new areas to hunt? did u ever fix the last lairs?
i dont really care about the events, i cant be here for them. they are cool, but im talking about NEW AREAS FOR 75 CRITS.
really after i got all the gear i could i dont have anything to do with my pally, and that was like 3 months ago, after i came back from a break. what can i do? go back to do lairs old lairs just for "fun"?
so pls, try to answer me what im asking, im not trying to attack or fight. so i will be waiting for something like "NEW ARE FOR 75 CRITS" and no "NEW XXX IN COB" givme something to keep going and advance in game.
thanks.

Unless new areas are in NL, can gain skill from them, can actually hit them, is soloable, dunno why they're even in game. New lairs are nice, but that's a fraction of what people do in the game, most is killing stuff growing crit.

Events are nice up to a point. It's still just a couple hours out of the playing experience though. I personally liked the con reward from grr, but others are losing interest in doing events due to rewards for lvl 75s isn't worth the time. +4 con on a crit that dies a lot, in reward for getting 1 shot by grr a couple times probably would sour me a little too. I hear the reward for the ajam on saturday was a random +1, which again would be fine with me, but might sour others as to why waste their time on events for sub-standard rewards in their minds.

Darge has new artwork, and that's a good thing. It looks awesome, but a lot of people still use legacy, so that's kind of moot.

I still enjoy playing in old areas growing up smaller crits, but I can see why people are having trouble. The only new area in the past years has been gdh/2/bdc. GDH is smallish, a couple decent quests, but nothing to really get excited about. GDH2 is nothing but a party farm place for tiers. BDC is nothing but a place of nigh unhittable crits that no one wants to waste their time in. Give us something where we can actually grow our crits on our own, and not have 3-4 other people with us to actually kill something with some speed. BDC only area that we can gain skill in, and there's not too many people jumping around BDC to kill forever to get 1%.

Well, if I get my way, 8 bit will eventually get some tweaks too.

Lol, I was trying to think of "Something Game" and that popped in my head. Too late I thought of Drinking Game. At least I made sure not to use a pic from the movie and be accused of insinuating something else. :)

I tend to react poorly when someone is unfairly accused of stealing. I want more in the game as well, I'm growing smaller crits out of boredom and for a challenge and I don't like BDH. I've complained or "cried" too... but only up to a point and no further.

Now I get to rant at you Omni <G>

Been all around "earthshaker lair". Passwall, illusion, disintegrate, blast, door, chi wall break and every other wall damaging disc do not seem to effect it anywhere. However, casting shockwave around the lair seem to kill crits INSIDE of it....
Surely if this is a removed lair, there would be no crits inside to die...

*looks confused*

Anyone able to provide any other additional info? :shock:

I don't believe it's removed nor is the Doppelganger lair. Just no longer accessible. Or is it?

I never claimed YOU could get in to see the Earthshaker - I just corrected the assertion that it was 'nothing'.

So these new places =)

Any hints to their entrances like say descriptions in the text or obvious hex difference?

I dropped IH throughout most of the Alerian south "seas" to delineate where the blocked hexes are and haven't found a hole or passage yet. I suppose I'll work East, West, North tonight. I anticipate many hours of walk 1 hex, check for description update ad nauseum because I suspect they won't put in an obvious terrain change.

I threw BDH nades on some hexes of Earthshaker just in case higher skill was needed beyond what a ment could cast. More nada. Overkill anyway as I'm guessing these will be areas/lairs will be more for exp15 to 20 size with appropriate skill.

Why was the earthshaker lair made inaccessible anyway?

Seems to me that reopening it would be a good way to generate a little more interest in an area few people even know of let alone hunt.
