    Oh geez, quick. Someone make an interpretive dance on this issue. Coupl'a power point presentations. It'll be made into a movie eventually.

    Is the written word not sufficient here?

    cause there were a few different things i was talking about, and listening to a video is usually what i like when i am interested in a topic rather than reading through a three page wall of txt. thats just me though =)

    i would find that acceptable. would still like to not see them available from the T1 weeklies. just add a T2 weekly (as i saw posted in another thread..... <Kill Murdantix and Zilas> as an example)

    This is quite a long video >.<

    One stupid thing is, aside from the dungeons, the GMoA/IMarks are the same amount. That doesn't make sense, why would anyone get GMoA ever =(

    It's... not even logical!

    EDIT: I just got to the "Silgen is the hardest boss in the game currently" part... he's not the easiest... but I've never understood why people find him so difficult :S

    because people have trouble pressing WASD in a raid encounter

    I could listen to Laughingskull talk for days.
    "I love being a father, but there are some things I miss: Silence, the absence of noise, one single moment undisturbed by the sounds of a childrens’ TV program called Doc McStuffins. There is no quiet anymore, there is only Doc McStuffins.

    Oh look, it's you again trying to get views on your youtube video. You didn't even keep it in the thread that already exists to discuss this.

    He says Umm too much for me. If he'd just stop that and say Mmm!

    But I like that theres a semi reward for not being a dirty raid logger.
    Be careful of the words you speak. Keep them short and sweet! For you may never know, from day to day, which ones you will have to eat!

    I do enjoy your vids laughing skull but only reason they would do this is to make it easier to gear potential recruits for guilds. With people quitting the game more guilds are needing to recruit able players.
    Of course skill over gear but with this route they seem to be making it easier to gear them up.
    I do agree with the current system its extremely fast to gear someone up.

    We recently recruited a cleric about 2 months back who had only been playing the game for a month and he's already 4/7 hexed. We had 2 clerics quit over the xmas period as well so the fact we have him ready for ID so fast is a bonus.

    I do agree though the IMoA should be in a hk/rotp weekly and not t1. People will run gsb and ros weeklys for the PA lvl

    Thanks for the journey RIFT - It's been fun

    I can understand all points of view.

    My opine or suggestion is this....

    1. If you have the Greenscale Blight Achievement - your weeklies and expert dungeons now have Greater Marks as a choose reward.

    2. If you have the Hammerknell Achievement (full clear) - your weekllies and expert dungeons now have Infernal Marks as a choose reward.

    So the game recognizes your achievement and changes the rewards that can be chosen.

    I think something like this is better. You want greater marks clear the T1 content, you want Infernal Marks clear the T2 content.

    If a guild that has cleared and geared from HK is progessing through ID, lets just say 6 bosses, that isnt going to happen in the first week, it may take a month or two to get the new content down. 6 bosses x 3 infernal marks = 18 IDmarks.

    Casual doing all weeklies = 19 marks. Which is better? So the casual part time raider is gearing just as or almost as fast as someone who has spent weeks/months in HK.

    Maybe after about 5 months or so redo the rewards to what is shown above.
