    In Release 46 we added the powerful ancient tree creature known as the Reaper and many players were afraid! Well don't fear the reaper anymore because you can wield the awesome power of the cowbell!

    Reapers, plants and mushrooms hate the cowbell so much they become confused and weakened just by hearing the sound of this fearsome weapon. Consequently Reapers have swallowed all the cowbells in the land so now the only way to gain this artifact is to slay Reapers.

    A guildy killed over 60 reapers since last night and not one cow bell dropped.

    Maybe tomorrow's date is relevant... but I hope not. That emote is a must have!

    Ok edited perhaps this is a joke. Lol Cowbells are a joke I know in the past. So Below is feedback regarding our Reapers.

    @DarkStarr why were Reapers removed from Greymark forest? I've heard some say they added so much to their enjoyment of that area.

    Also Reapers may have been tough but it was a nice change and perhaps instead of changing them all we could have had baby reapers in lower tier areas instead of one size fits all type of thing. And still have them surprise us. I am not interested in cowbells but just imo.

    Reapers to me were an awesome addition to the game and I just don't want them over done but stay surprises. and also now to add more types of surprising creatures like cliff stone golems that break away from the cliff in surprising places and I really miss have lions/leopards, panther type of creatures and a few snakes here and there would be a nice change up to same old creatures everywhere. but future stuff coming I hope ;)
