    Raid Boss, Orbs, and You!

    Hello Lords and Ladies!


    Your feedback was much appreciated concerning the availability of orbs during the last raid boss event. In consideration of this we have taken some measures to help make orbs more available for the upcoming raid boss: Skrix the Underlord, which begins March 31st.

    1.) The epic boss: Ratticus, will now be rewarding more orbs than epic bosses in the past.
    Edit: to be specific, each boss should drop 1 orb, and the legendary goals which reward orbs will reward twice the amount of orbs as previously.

    2.) The honor cost for acquiring orbs has been lowered from 5000 to 1000.
    3.) Orb drop rate from enemies has been raised slightly
    Edit:
    4.) We have also raised the spawn rate of the Epic boss at lower levels (higher levels were already high) so it should be easier to trigger the boss in order to meet your goals and farm orbs.

    Please consider this information when managing your honor and gathering orbs in preparation for Skrix.

    Thanks for playing!

    Please look into the drop rate - it is actually less right now than during the last Rb according to my trials.

    first part, nice move! Regarding legendary...well, I think you guys didn't missed the point that only VERY VERY few people actually did legendary because of the tremendous health and needed additional kills

    At least "something"

    That was about due!

    Managing honor?!? Let's assume we are raiding/PvPing non-stop 24hours and also assume 1 succesful raid or attack gives a pretentious 30 honor points (which is already very high), we get an incredible amount of 14.4k honor per day. This would be 14 Orbs per player and 860 Orbs in a 60-man guild. Not very much, because you need to take into consideration that not all 60 members are willing to do that (we have also some RL) and especially not 24/7. Huge stacks of honor have been spent last RB already, so the trend will go down further even with these changes.

    Are the legendary epic boss requirements going to be reduced? Most players don't get anywhere near close to finishing the normal portion of epic boss, and all but a handful even attempted legendary last time. Unless there are significant changes to legendary EB, hardly any players will benefit from doubling the orb pay-out.

    IPB:

    If EB health is going to be same or very similar to last EB...................then 99.9% of players will only kill bosses for guild goal and not even gona try getting to boss 150 as it will be impossible

    so giving double orbs on legendary is useless if EB health is the same or similar as last event

    2 X nothing = nothing

    Not sure Gree math covers this.

    It seems the EB health stayed at the same crazy level as last time. 655,795 health of the level 150.

    Hello Gree: Not very many will even attempt Legendary. So you could have multiplied the Legendary orbs by 100 and it wouldn't have made much difference. Thanks for nothing there.

    I bet the four players who actually attempted to do legendary EB are happy with the additional orbs.

    For the other several thousand players who even try legendary, you really haven't done them any favors. Most guilds have actually asked their players to conserve boss kills so that they can complete daily goals. Make EB easier and less time consuming and maybe players can take advantage.

    Also, for what its worth I bet you are selling a lot fewer equipment packs these days. Why spend money on equipment when you aren't going to finish EB?

    Please do something with this EB format. 150+ 130 kills in a few days are just insane. And with the insane health needed it makes it just not worth the effort. We play to have fun, to relax, it should not feel like a full time job to obtain goals in a game, having to live on timers to get the 20 something gold hits needed to bring them down.
    Not to mention the last one .. 5 minutes..

    What is the point to purchase all the best equipment Gree, if we are not rewarded with an easier task of completing the quest? It seems we purchase the best only to have you raise the health to insane levels. Epic boss health is ridiculous, cannot imagine anyone and if someone does it is just a handful that would waste money on the legendary boss. Rethink your position by lowering it to 100 bosses or lowering the health on 150. Current health amounts should be legendary and even that is insane considering all epic boss bonuses, quick health regen and high weapon attacks top players have, impossible to complete. If you don't want to lower it, then be honest of how many people actually completed legendary.
