I am shocked that there has not been an outrage regarding the Otherworldly Components for the T2 Group Armor pieces! I've loved the recent expansions where you can farm ores and make the pieces that use them to get nice T2 gear. Now we need to get a drop for each piece like the old days? "Otherwordly Arm Armor Lining" and so forth?! I am hating this BS, isn't anyone else? Where my peeps at?

Yep, it's BS... and not only are they unique slots, they're not even a guaranteed drop in Chests anymore

Just a time sink to make up for the lack of content

Makes me glad I haven't invested into this expansion yet.

I’ve been farming with 4 groups (minus 1 toon) since the drop, I barely have 2 full sets.

I thought the silk, topaz, hides etc were at least super common and turns out they changed those, too.

So far everything about NoS has been “meh” at best.
the “Jackson pollock” ornament stuff is hideous

It would be easier if they made those other wordly components at least tradeable. Imagine how much of those will rot while waiting for the right componet. (unless they are mob specific like some augs)

i bought it for one gruop of toons and have to say unless they come up with something more enticing next round i wont be spending anymore money on expansions and will just play what is available. the armor thing although annoying, is second to my issue with them cutting and pasting the same crud now for the last 4 yrs ... TBL was the last imaginative expansion theyve done.

im tired of doing the same thing in rehashed zones with mediocre content

Everquest has been a copy and past expansions since they started revamping zones. They got away with revamping a couple zones and then started selling revamped zones over and over again. They make another copy and People keep buying it. Long live Everquest. :)

The drop rate on those things are horrible. So far in like 17 runs, I've had 1 shield, 3 earrings, 1 belt, and 1 range component drop.
I am amazed at how gullible the eq community is sometimes...guys they're just out to make a buck...the longer the keep ya on...the better for them...

We're gonna be on regardless; stuff like this has to tick off their solo customers. Can you imagine setting up groups and grinding for months (as a non-boxer) for a few drops (of course you can; the good old Vanilla experience, now with fewer actual players to share it with)? It'll keep boxed groups busy longer, I guess.

You can definetely box manually (alt+tab) with the right keyboard and set-up...it just suuuuucks on the wrists so much. I almost got carpal tunnel from 20+ years of doing that crap...so thanful for RG! I luv you guys! and now some humor!...

I’ve seen other game producers talk about similar stuff and how it actually hurts retention. I’m trying to Google for it, but I want to say it was Yoshi P from FF14.

Note my outrage now! I had no idea that the system existed until now.

But, now that I see how hard this is going to be to gear out my box crew, I am FILLED with outrage! lol

One more point of outrage, each piece is different so rather than just stacking up ores you got multiple slots being taken up in your bag until you can turn the otherworldly into its item. 😡

Its definitely one of the more un-fun parts of the new expansion. I get making T2 more viable etc, but double dipping on nerfing drop rates + Making drops random across literally every single armor piece + Weapon type + Jewelry + Charm + Augment is a bit overkill even in a game like EQ. It feels like the worst aspects of Classic Everquest in Modern Everquest. I don't feel like "having good armor" in a non-grindy way was a #1 complaint among EQ players that drastically needed fixing pronto. Getting full set of Type 5's still was a grind imo considering there is only 4 missions <Assuming you do all 4 missions each day religiously> with CD's attached and unlike CoV it didn't drop in open world.
