Still haven't updated gun animations, huh? I couldn't use the Seraphic Pistol because it just looked silly. I had to switch back to Ada's Scythe.

It might be better if guns and bows were different types of weapon

To confirm, despite Northpointe dialogue, currently, there are no areas called Shadowrise Tower, Havokrun Fortress, or Brightshield Keep, correct?

Do we need a dedicated thread for asking what items a particular NPC is wearing? For example, the capes of the Dragon Slayers in Dragon Town: http://aqwwiki.wikidot.com/dragonslayer-general-monster http://aqwwiki.wikidot.com/dragonslayer-monster but also the hood and axe of this Dark Crusader here: https://imgur.com/f5gno7K

I LOVED Exaltia...in Dragonfable. I think it could have been better implemented in AQW. Although yesterday was the first day, so I may be jaded.

I'm waiting to do the Ultra quests until more players learn the strategy and mechanics of the fights and pick up new classes and maybe improve some of their gear, since groups are random. I don't *need* the weapon, I just desire it and the badge in my collection. I have the NSoD.

What is this RNG? Zhoom's Berserker quest in Nostalgia Quest seems to consistently give the standard Beta Berserker armor, rather than the Dark version. Dark Berserker is only "weird" rarity.

New release was great, I think I have lost my last bit of hope towards the playerbase at large.

People can't make a proper party or co-ordinate in any capacity to save their lives.

Not that the full blame is on them given AE has coddled them into the mindset of 'just throw VHL plus some support class* at anything' over the last, what, eight years? More? Not that they have too much choice, most of the classes in the game are completely useless and doesn't fit the traditional MMO class triangle, like we still don't have a proper dedicated tanking class (aside Blood Titan but that's so outdated and costs 2000AC or a membership it hardly counts). It doesn't help there are only so many kinds of interactions your can implement with a system where space is basically irrelevant because bosses can hit you anyway. AQW was obviously not made - or rather, grown - for a release like this.

*which is a great testament that people don't have a clue how classes and their auras work together since VHL gets no tangible benefits from extra crit rate, spell damage, crit damage, haste, or nearly any buff that matters, God, I was supposed to be the casual player who just enjoys dress-up how did this happen?!

I do agree about the space, along with that guns and bows comment that I made earlier. Also, I just realized something. Like the king in Sand Land, Dethrix's insignia is also just the silhouette of his face. Given that, should I assume that both kings are first generation? I mean, otherwise, what was the insignia before their reign? The silhouettes of their fathers' faces?

I have noticed a few problems with these ultra fights.

First, obviously the lack of coordination and the lack of players knowing the strategy and mechanics. When you get in a good group, great. Although it can take a while to get in a good group.

Second, the weapons arenít useful until level 80, most of them level 95. So why are there so many low-levels in there? Have a lockout set at level 80, at least 75.

Third, there are AFK players hanging out in the rooms. If youíre marked AFK for more than 30 seconds, you should be kicked from the rooms.

Fourth, while PWD is awesome when it fires, it only fires 1 in 1,000 times. People are trading in their more reliable BoA enhancements for PWD due to the intensity of the fights hoping it will fire. Rather than hoping PWD will fire, we need to rely on classes with nuking abilities.

I would support ENGINEER and WARDEN being buffed (not Ezrajal, heís adequately tough enough for what was the easiest of the three bosses in Dragonfable) if AQW would increase the room size to at least 5, preferably 6. 7 may be too much. An ideal full support group, if you can get one, is a Legion Revenant, a Lightcaster, a Stonecrusher, an Infinity Titan, a Lord of Order, and an Archpaladin. Thatís six. I do have all six of said classes by the way as well as others, either in inventory or bank, although I am best at Legion Revenant and Lightcaster, because those are the two I use most often, and I use Wizard enhancements. I could trade out enhancements if given time, but you canít change BoA enhancements without going to the crossroads.

The Ultra versions of monsters are powerful. The AQW Team created those versions to be a challenge to the players.

Now imagine one year down the line when everybody who bothered wanting to get it already has it. It's hard enough already to gather people for farming Icewing, nobody will look at this map again. Ever.

Of course they do. Statistically, if a fight goes on for long enough, a fast auto-attack class with PWD will always surprass anything that's not a game-breaker like a Chrono in terms of damage. It's a random guaranteed instant win which is better than a less random slight damage increase.

You know, the more I think about it, this release is the perfect summary of AQW now:
- It's a half-baked Boss Rush with somewhat kitted-out damage sponges instead of normal damage sponges...
- ...whom can be cheesed through with PWD or Chrono classes again.
- It has a boosted weapon reward for them hardcore farmers (that everybody agrees on are bad things)
- ...that is utterly worthless as its +50% damage bonus is mitigated by it's +500% framerate loss from how ridiculously overdone it is.

Just to confirm, the Shadowfall Nursery dungeon and thus its rewards will now be available all year round, instead of just on Father's Day, right?
