    Could we get sieges put back the way they were? Right now sieges are feeling like a huge waste of time with the lack of wood and now the hood drop rate has been dropped from 2.5% to 1.5% there is almost not point. I mean after 440 sieges and not one drop?? Atleast before i was getting wood now all im getting is mediocre XP. They were rare before I don't understand why the need to mess with them in the first place?

    Well if being courageous isn't your thing, I guess you could just "bypass" them these days...

    It seems to be more and more the Shroud way. When small % of players can do something and farm it hard thats fine. Once the hoard starts catching up doing teh same thing THEN it needs to be nerfed. Nothing unexpected here. Farm early farm often.


    Its hard to get motivated to roll thru sieges these days.

    Im about 150+ kills deep with sieges with no hood. At this point I won't be doing sieges. There really isn't a point in it. I doubt they understand how expensive hoods will become after people realize what happened. Hope you boys have some stockpiled. Ride the wave until it crashes. They'll have to fix it eventually.

    Yea and It shouldn't matter if people are farming them that's the only way to get them. They barely dropped before now it seems to not drop at all. I don't have half a mil to go buy one tho it would probably be faster to grind up half a mil to buy one before you could get one to drop.

    Jeez, I got one the very first time I killed a Cabalist. A year ago. I haven't gotten one since. And now they're more rare?

    I am furious about this. I too blame both the many people who wanted this and the silent indifferent crowd.

    They should just accept the competativness open mode brought and learned to steal and loot cabalists out from under people like any decent god-fearing gamer should.

    Im so pissed i cant steal peoples cabalists anymore that i cant see straight. Deffinately the wrong move

    Not so sure you understand what is being asked... he's saying he has no problem with taking them out, but there is something wrong with the drop rate on rare items like the hoods and weapons, something that seems to be affecting more than the Cabalists.

    There were enough sieges for everyone --- Is competition for resources not what happens in any other normal mmorpg? Welfare and selfishness here )) NOW deal with the resources and drop nerf!

    I couldn't give a **** less what modes they offer. Keep the private or forced multi it doesn't matter to me. What matters is the drop rate. They were already hard to get now they seem impossible. Mean while all high end players have all the hoods they need and the mid level players can't get one.

    Oh. Doesnt matter if there were enough sieges if the goal is to take the cabalist in the one you are in before the others do.

    Damn i didnt think about the wood shortage thats gonna happen. Now im gonna have to buy 200 logs from somebody every time i need a chair or new bow, which is VERY often i might add. Ug.

    I have no desire to get a full set of dragon heads, but I was hoping to someday be able to get a full set of Cabalist hoods. :/

    This is again a great example of the fact, that none really "designs" this game. They just do stuff like this again and again.

    Instead of figuring out the problem and then fixing that, they just hide it.

    They don't like that players get to high levels, their solution is to introduce even more grind.. clever.

    Game is nerfed, on every aspect. First ones get all the prices, late joiners get the grind. Same with xp, ores, gold and everything else.

    ill informed reply, the problem, why the change was made, was because some players "Griefed" sieges, call it whatever you want but it was NOT because it was farmed. The farming of wood was fixed that was all that "Might" have needed addressing.

    If any item is farmed it is a flaw of the system, the WHOLE system and it happens ALL over.

    Someone once said early and often to "MAKE SURE ITEMS DROP RATES ARE RARE, IT IS EASIER TO RAISE THEM IF IT APPEARS TO RARE THEN REMOVE THEM AFTER."

    Also
    and
    It is play like this that hurts the game, griefing players and taking advantage of the ability to roll over players is an affect, causing players to have a bad taste in their mouths.

    All that was wanted was the change BACK to allow players to NOT get steam rolled the drop rates and change to wood and other loot is a result of a Bad Design decision.
