    seems like dotd is moving slowly toward the right path
    if only we could get some items like the crit mounts etc buyable in some form ( wich is not another chest xD)
    and other stuff cuz for players like me who returned after the crit mounts were here it means beeing stuck without the trillion crit builds xD

    My very favorite thing about this week's update is: The additional requirements for quest zone. Nice!
    I liked it because: Makes questing a bit harder, with better rewards!
    Maybe we could: Find a way to stop 1shotting small raids? Short cd is nice, but...

    This week I didn't care for: The comment below me.
    I didn't like it because: It was slower than mine.
    Instead, let's: Can we make questing more rewarding? More hard legendary items? Like Vexanna^2?

    Oh, very nice! Baroness cooldown reduced!

    Rather wish the rented ghosts dropped off NM z9.10, though.

    Will it register on the 2nd run or at the 5th? Since one way would mean we would get less AP overall.

    Like: Additional reduced CD raids, caster names on magic (so I can find mine on guild raids or know who to bark at for others ), and new pet citadel items.

    Don't like:
    Hard difficulty requires the Legendary item Vexanna, and has a guaranteed drop off the final boss that is unique to this zone and difficulty
    Legendary difficulty requires the Legendary item Mina von Richten III, and has a guaranteed drop off the final boss that is unique to this zone and difficulty
    Nightmare difficulty requires the Legendary item War Snail, and has a guaranteed drop off the final boss that is unique to this zone and difficulty
    Way to cheapen Vexanna, Mina III, and War Snail! Much as I hated slogging through raids, quests, and puzzles for craftables, it was a worthy goal. Now everyone can just forget it.... you'll have it by Monday. Why not drop some of the crafting items you need instead?

    Move that back up to the "Likes"... I misread that as saying that you'd get those items when you completed the zone and difficulty. I did NOT read it as saying that each difficulty level has a guaranteed unique drop when you beat the boss.

    Need... more... Dew....

    I'm not sure you understand - the items are requirements for starting the zone. Those of us who have slogged through it all have a huge head start. The only way that folks are going to complete all of them by Monday is by doing truly MASSIVE amounts of questing this weekend. If anything, this increases the value of these items.

    yeah the rented ghosts have always been super stingy. not sure why they have them set to such low drop rates. think is the only questing event that I have been around for that I didn't easily complete with extras by the end of it. still don't have the second boost yet from last year even.
