Mage Epic bottle neck

Post by Maceblade » Fri Aug 23, 2019 9:04 am

At the risk of sounding like a blat ass, I feel the biggest bottle neck for the mage Epic is the hate staff. We've had 9 kills and have yet to see it. We have 6 Mages waiting on the staff. Not asking for you to give it to us, but perhaps separate it onto its own loot_drop with a 20-25% chance to drop, or possibly increase the chance at which the mini can drop it.

Now I know you're gonna say "Inny's loot table is huge", and although that may be true, how many other epics have to contend a vital part with a "huge" loot table?

Even if his table had 16 class specific drops, that's at least one staff every 6 kills. We've seen duplicates of everything else. I'm not sure how many kills GBC has been through either.

10 kills and still no staff. Will most likely be another kill with no staff tonight.

11 inny kills / Hate clears and not one staff. Literally equivalent to 3 months worth of Hate farming. Chanter rod, warrior 2h, cleric hammer, bloodmoon and bard weapon have rotted bc they are way too common.

Can you please put the staff on its own table? No other epic in the game has this bottleneck.

Will give you a call today Trev as there are a couple of other bits I would like to be able to add my second bottle to the system for a trip to the Nurburgring shortly
