    Default Why are instant adventure purples better than NTE gear ?

    See title. Why are Hammerknell instant adventures Better than NTE gear ?


    Other players have to work hard and gear themselves to run dungeons.

    Now you can literally hop into an Instant adventure and get purples that are better than NTE
    gear.

    Is there a reason for this ?

    A bit off topic, but how do you get those? I've completed 30 IA weekly in those twice now, but I didn't see any purples. Is it some super rare drop?

    Havent seen any better than epics. They also don't have procs. Also, who cares? you need to do IAs for your weekly anyways.

    Hammerknell IAs.


    To the OP: People complain about not getting the drops they want in NTE experts. People complain that you can get gear from just farming weeklies for marks. People complain about gearing being available to purchase with credits.

    Is it really that bad to have another source available to gearing up?

    I don't think it is a bad thing if they are equal to NTE or even slightly better, it is another avenue of gearing up.

    I'm not mad they drop gear, just that the gear is better than NTE gear


    Example: A healing trinket dropped, and the Proc was better than the Finric trinket proc. We raided for weeks to get those drops, and geared ourselves and coordinated raids.

    Now you can do an IA and get a better proc

    So how often do you see those pieces in there? I must've done around 70 IAs and never seen a piece. After one tougher boss kill, where lots of us died, I actually joked "where are our epics?" I guess that wasn't a joke, after all.

    This is actually an error on our part. The trinkets are not supposed to have procs on them at all and will be corrected with next week's hotfix. Sorry for the confusion and inconvenience.

    Thank you so much for this communication !

    While I have your attention, the 2h Weapons have 250 Hit and dont require any abyssals/voids to upgrade (to get that 250 hit) is this also intended ?

    In my 35 IA today I got 6 or so caches, 1 of which had a piece of gear: A blue quality non-upgradable BP with 125 hit and +phys crit. Inferior to my upgraded 125 hit crafted BP, and soulbound, so it got runebroke.

    The gear rewards just got added with today's hotfix. I saw a lot of shard firsts during my HK IA run today as players started getting gear from their adventure caches.

    While we are at it the warrior and mage gloves drop with no hit. Not sure about the rogue and cleric gloves.
