lol, maybe to add the fucking EW quest NPC into the game? Or maybe there's something else uber broken that we aren't aware of.

Some named spawns are on chain repop. Exp seems mental, fellowship vitality seems broken, merc revives are patchy, mobs are strangely easy for a new xpac.

bahh why am I never in the loop to take advantage of this stuff. But then again, I do remember the big ban hammer from a few expansions ago from people exploiting some bug with instance chest or timers.

I did some farming in crystal caverns last night- my impression was everything was just slightly harder than the yellow con mobs in meartas. I was thinking wow, this expansion is going to be super easy once my group is decked out in the newer TS gear. I could see them making this expansion easier given how much bitching there was on the forums about TBL and its difficulty. On one hand I like the challenge and don't want to breeze through content but easy mode is nice too!

Expect exp to get a bump and mob difficulty to get a bump, as well. I have no info for this ... just my guess.

My main concern at the moment is the missions that give group currency are not easy ... and will he VERY hard to box ... and the amount of currency they give is tiny ... so .... get ready for an insane grind.

From What Ngreth said it sounds like a major hit to the amount of Exp from the group Heroics that were giving ~46% exp for first time achievments.

That is odd to me -- in one of his posts where people were talking about the best place to level he basically said ya dummies you know the achievements give a ton of xp right? It's almost like that was his idea and wanted everyone to be doing it
add that to the list of things we missed out on!

probably but just more like the 12% that the partisans and merc achievs are getting.. it was pretty crazy that for 1.5hrs of missions you basically went from 111 to 113.

Sounds like, as usual, the group stuff is tuned for raid-geared players.
Aside from ToFS, I haven't found a single thing that has challenged me yet & I've done all group missions, a lot of merc/part tasks and quite a few nameds. I'm fully group geared too. I get some expansions in the past have been too hard, but i'm almost done with this one after 2 short days of playing...!

IF you could figure out how to complete the missions

IF you could get the mission dead

IF you could get all of the achievements

... the only people who checked all those boxes were raiders who saw all the raids in beta OR the one or three group players who spent any time in beta doing the quests/missions (when they weren't bugged).

I guess I'm In Mongo's boat, I did the 4 missions not doing in beta and we didn't even blink an eye. have done a few other partisan etc, so far seems easy mode.

Going to be very boring very fast. if that's all there was to do. Though the biggest pain is how little currency you get from the missions, so literally going to have to do them 100s of times to get anything.

not banned, but you could find yourself on the receiving end of a rollback.
