    Yeah, the only reason I'm going there now is for XP. I'm not a fan of having to group-up any time I want to grind for XP. I just want to go do it.

    I think where a bit of frustration is coming from the hour’s spent, collecting essence. How many shadows are you actually killing in say an hour?

    If this item has even a 10% drop, you will need to be killing 1 - 50 shadow creatures per drop.

    That's actually part of the problem. The creatures are super tough and hard to kill, so having a low chance to get an essence just makes it frustrating.

    Anyway, I've given up on the idea of actually using the potions. I just go there for the XP.

    The XP will still be "good" after double xp. It'll be half what it is now, but so will everywhere else. Comparatively, it will still be good.

    Chris is also planning something regarding xp. No details yet, but some sort of increase "so the XPs are more reasonable when we disable double XPs."

    Anyone know what type of damage these beasts do? What is shadow damage? Moon? Death? Chaos? Also they debuff you with Corruption +24, what is that? Is that a Chaos debuff?

    I don't know but Celestial Blessing covers two of those.

    Please fix it

    Has anyone else noticed that the shadow spiders leash if you even touch an egg sac or tree root? I filed a bug here but, as usual, it's gotten no attention.

    I noticed that the shadow beasts randomly do insane damage to pets (with taming spec 110 and hide toughness 120)

    Level scaled loot system hasn’t been added yet.

    On a livestream, ask Chris when that will be added.

    I noticed this as well. After every 2 kills on a shadow spider I have to release my pet and re-summon it or they will start hitting it for over 3k. Doing this seems to fix the issue but is a pain in the butt to release and summon every 2 kills on a shadow beast.

    Lamech's Bazaar was released months ago, this method of adding half finished things is very frustrating, now they are working on new things like the new food system, mounts, etc. and god knows when they'll finish the loot system
    And by the way, why didn't they add a boss-like shadow mob with 100k HP and some unique ability? Something that gives a meaning to the adventure, and not the usual endless grinding...

    That is the current content delivery system that Chris currently is using. Many of us greatly dislike that, and have expressed that and would like this content delivery system changed. So this is how it will be.

    Feel free to discuss that with Chris on a livestream.

    I bugged this and have asked for feedback twice but heard zilch back. Purify doesn't help and neither does AFKing with the pet out for 15mins and going again. You need to unsummon and resummon. A bug around watering plants was fixed pretty damn quick though so that's something!

    You seem to have to be in the position to watch the livestream now to get any feedback. Probably won't get anything here.
