    Corrupted Golems (Mount)
    8. His power grew. Of course it did. He had become Putrefaction's new vessel, and he continued to spread corruption across the realm. Twisted golems became his servants and enforcers, spreading further suffering amongst those who still lived.

    Things only got worse; the land itself began to wither and die, the psychic pain taking physical manifestation. Slowly, what few people remained fled over the mountains and across the sea, seeking the promise of better lives and better tomorrows.

    Wow, thank you Mouse! Reduced timers, new raid, community tier on Hecate, and new familiar. No wonder Mandrake 4 was delayed.

    New raid looks nice.
    6 hour CDs on a ton of raids is great.
    Promo Code looks good.
    Not a fan of yet another rng chest, but oh well.
    But the best thing about the patch notes is:

    I always ask for some of the generals/troops with passives to show up in the buff window but it never happens.

    I notice that the Baroness isn't on the list of 6 hour cooldowns. Is this an oversight?

    Edit: Jack and Jack's Revenge would be a nice addition too.

    Think they're only doing z1-10 and no bonus zones we had back then.

    My very favorite thing about this week's update is: cooldowns
    I liked it because: AP
    Maybe we could: Increase Vampiric box chance from random boxes

    This week I didn't care for: Late ER
    I didn't like it because: Was waiting for it
    Instead, let's: Set your alarm

    My very favorite thing about this week's update is: Reduced cooldowns are nice
    I liked it because: Well, it might not prevent the raids from getting one-shotted, but we might see them a little more frequent
    Maybe we could: Find something to prevent them from being one-shotted?

    This week I didn't care for: The new raid
    I didn't like it because: There is enough **** the be crafted from the wizard tower, aint nobody got time for that!
    Instead, let's: Find a way to craft arcane essence? Like using 10x oil for 1 arcane essence...

    Please. Increase. Vamp box drops. I rather the urns that are a 100% chance for double honor volos be 1% and the vamp box that has a less than 1% chance [When accounting for the box to drop, the random box to be obtained, the vamp box and THEN Tollo having a chance to drop] to drop Tollo to have a higher chance.

    Okay, this week we are missing the following items in the "New" craft-tab:
    Eye of Doom
    Doomglare Hide Set
    Basiliskus
    Fylaris the (Sort of) Blind
    Murmilla
    Jazeriah the Bloody
    Advanced Clockwork Set
    Cogs III
    Grand Artificer's Clockwork Golem


    Veteran Brathrur the Manticore Slayer
    Veteran Haunild the Centaur Slayer
    Veteran Malota the Demon Slayer
    Those 3 could be completed outside of Events, but the chances are much better with Soldier Ants.


    I offered you to do this before each patch via PM


    My regards,
    Keyki
    - Best equipment vs a certain raid type
    - Magic calculator
    - Expedition chances
    - Leveling and Perception summaries (made with the help if LanderZ's data)

    while the small fry raid cool down reductions are nice, there is a troubling implication to them.

    guess this means they is no hope of us ever getting any kind of damage limiter mechanic for raids, otherwise why go to the trouble of reducing the cool downs like this.

    While you are probably right, it could just be because changing the CDs was easy to do immediately while working on a damage limiter will take more time.
