    I don't quite understand what you asking ... can you please be more concrete?
    What I will say is no "insider information" ... but rather a personal opinion formed over the years of playing this game.

    You have to understand that the devs are working with the assets and tools provided by the company ... they can't make you a rubber boat out of a rubber boots they were provided with :)
    The test server has a limited capacity (I remember whenever was a big feature at TS I couldn't get in because some kids were logged in and begging for freebies while those who actually do testings were out XD) ... they can't provide testing environment for everyone. Therefore only selected few are getting the opportunity to test there (even though i think they have increased the capacity ... still can't be everyone). There were few testing promotions in the forums where players could apply for testing ... and later on, only the selected applicants could test in special environment. Both gurus have had testing sessions in special environment :)
    Those technical limitations are one of the reasons ... the other reason might be the quality of the feedback. It is better to have a handful of knowledgeable testers rather than entire playing community transferred on Testing Server.
    Also ... at the end ... the feedback provided by the testing players may be overlooked ... according to the companies plans and policies.
    So at the end we are coming to the same old question we are asking in the forum "why asking for feedback when it gets put under the carpet"?
    It doesn't matter if you were testing and provided a significant valuable feedback ... if it is not implemented at the end.

    BTW ... here is the updated Crafting guide :p

    Traki, what should I do with the old Magotina cloak tier 3 I bought some time ago on lev 55? Should I keep it as it is, or buy a refiner to change it into newer version? I find the spiders too powerful to defeat on higher difficulties thus I'm unable to get the new one :(
    currently I'm using the dragan cloak and hope for gwenfara's one...

    What are the stats of your current cloak, the stats/stats range of the refined cloak and the refined cost?

    As for gwenfara's cloak, if you don't have it, you will never get it. If it comes back, it will just be a new cloak with new stats using the new format.

    It depends on your build and the items you are using.
    With some items the old set has better crit in example but has no base stats.

    There you go. I'll try to take a screen of the old Magotina cloak when the servers will be on.
    This one was the best from the drop, so I kept it.

    I play a ranger, so I need the crit. At the moment my chr is rather low (around 30%) :(
    As for the cloak, unfortunately that was the only item from the set I managed to get before the removed the flowers :/
    Still cannot decide which one is better: the old or the new one.

    EDIT: this is the old cloak: [​IMG]

    A few questions about cloaks:

    - Should i bother doing the 5th cloak quest?

    - where do you get these 5000 combat value cloaks as drops?

    It depends on your other enchantments and base stats. I am playing ranger as well ... i am still using the old cloak and boots.
    You can do that quest as a side quest only ... as for the CV reference ... no one is looking at the CV of the items ... that feature is only wasting the tooltip's space.

    I'm back... Again!

    I swear, I must come and go from this game more than anyone else I know.

    Life has kept me incredibly busy and something had to give. Unfortunately, it was DSO.

    That said, life has calmed down and your second Guru has returned. Ask away.

    I have one question.
    Would it be usefull to introduce some type of reward in pvp after a match? somewhat of a reward chest, that'll give useful resources like essences, gems, glifs, ecc. and as a jackpot a decorative reward such as the bear mount or the quest costumes?

    It depends on the point of view.
    If i get it ... it would be useful ... if you get it ... it would be useless. :D

    I mean, would it be useful to convince players to do pvp more?

    Probably not more than the dailies do. Which for me doesn't.

    The PvP part of the dailies can take many hours. I know from other characters I have. My main and me in particular, other than the weekends, just don't have enough time and the rewards for the time needed are laughable.
  18. sargon234

    sargon234 Commander of the Forum

    It actually takes max 1 hour to do pvp, depends on the quest
  19. TwiliShadow

    TwiliShadow Count Count

    Not true. When the quest is win 10 matches and it takes me hours per win.... :( Well, on another toon, since my main toon has never been in PvP.

    I can believe that you have never done the PvP quests. Because there is no such PvP quest as "win 10 matches".
    The quest you are referring is to get 10 PvP kills. Which is the easiest. You just log into a 5v5 PvP match and wait few minutes. Even if you didn't do anything you will get the 10 kills in no time because the kills your group do counts towards quest.
