Dark Devices FATE is now nerfed (this morning's patch)

So no more 200k+ XP in 10min.

Just FYI - looking for alternate farm sites.

    So they waited till enough People were Level 50 to start rolling endgame and then they finally gonna nerf it.

    SE is just as bad as SOE when it comes to crap like this. Anyone remember "The Hole" in EQ2 (as one of many examples in EQ2's history) ?  /shrug

    I think they just didn't realize that players would exploit the endless spawning mobs, they thought that people would kill the boss instead.

    Either way... its gone. I am thinking Dragonhead area could be a good alternate spot for xp chains.

    Well on my server you have people ignore the amazing xp and kill the boss to end the fate too quickly about 50% of the time anyway so it's not going to change much for me. Some seem to be trolls others seem to be idiots. Kinda stinks cause my next 50 was gonna be blm which is super useful there but I'm over it.

    Had the same issue. Troll guild loved to hang out in DD and kill lambs.

    Well, people have told square since closed beta phase 1 or 2 of ARR that fates allowed you to level way to fast, but they didn't listen like usual. I quit the game like 2-3 weeks ago, nothing to do at 50 that was actually intersting. Fate grinding an alt while fast was extremly boring to me to the point I just lost interest in the game. Hows the population?

    Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

    A. Proven right (if something bad happens)

    or

    B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)

    Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!

    So they fixed an exploit that's cool.... Not sure why its a big deal that it deserves a  thread. Now if you started one about all the fixes in the patch thats one thing...... but ya 

    You all do know that MMOs are like the special olympics ... everyone gets a medal just for showing up.

    Other options still exist...

    Hint: Think of turn-in FATES.

    Except there are always people who constantly turn in items. The thing I hate about this is Fates are a lot of times slow to spawn and DD could be the only fate up for quite sometime...now it's back to just standing around the crystal for 80% of your time there.

    People had to learn not to continue the process on Dark Devices too....

    Good.  If they start nerfing FATES then maybe they can work on a better way for people to level.

    Maybe if folks were not is such a hurry to blow through a game these days and get to the "end game" this wouldn't be an issue! 

     

    Just saying....

    I get Q's every time I log in so pretty good I'm betting.

    This is only alarming because they stated it was working as intended like what, 2 weeks ago?

    Working as intended =/= nerfs.

    The damage is already done anyway. People who wanted to get a second or third job to level 50 did so, no doubt.

    Waiting for something fresh to arrive on the MMO scene...

    It was only this one fate. Plus there are many people just getting the game and lvling their second class I'm sure.

    Love how people act as if leveling fast is some kind of right.

    Well you can still get a ton of exp . But people end the fates to fast . The fates where you gather an item for the NPC.if you farm that fate(s) you can gain upto 30-50k and hand in items with one min. left then rather then getting 5 items and turning in right away.

    Personally I think this is a positive development.

    There Is Always Hope!

    Exping is fast enough this really doesn't matter much.

     

    I mean we're basically talking about it taking a few hours longer to get from 45-50 than before.
