    My number one question in regard to Eternal items and more specifically the saga rewards - Are the developers ready to share with us how they're going to address the warrior/cleric tank situation as far as options go when the time to pick said eternals finally comes?

    There may not be a lot of main tanks in the game as there are generally only 2 spots in most guilds, but we've been left in the wind and would like to see some light at the end of the tunnel.

    Default Eternal Weapons.

    Just asking, will the eternal weapons be a mix of both ranged and melee weapons or be the same old 1-H,OH and 2-H with similar hits but greater dps? it would be fun to see a weapons with 750+ hit.
    And one more thing... Will we see weapons/armour with specific relations to a plane and can source some extra dps/shield from them?

    Dimensioneering - We know there's a bunch of stuff on PTS right now, but there's also supposed to be a ton of assets that Tacitus has been waiting to dump on everybody for Carnival that aren't there. Are we going to see those today (Today meaning tomorrow.)

    Wardrobe - rave green, neon pink, Roll Tide red, and, 13 other colors. What are the other new colors coming soon to a palate near you?

    Wardrobe - We've seen Crucia's outfit and Usukhel's outfit. Both look pretty sharp. (Some folks would like to see more skin on the male models for Crucia's, but it's liveable.) Are we getting any new wardrobe options? (Not that two full outfits aren't enough.)

    Gear - We got the 275 hit neck for Christmas (upgradable to 275 hit). What pieces will we be getting for carnival this year?

    Gear - Will we get a new cape quest?

    Mounts - Is the mammoth model that's been floating around going to be for the carnival this year? Or is the mammoth going to be replacing the 5th anniversary racing snail (Still love Nascargo BTW)? Or both? Or....something else?

    Rift bosses - Last year's rift bosses in shimmersand were fan-freakin'-tastic. Will we be seeing them again? Will they get upgraded or remain at their current level? Will Maelforge get added?

    Will more steps of the eternal weapon quest get a instant complete option with credits?
    For example on PTS:

    It was said that most everyone will get 2h eternal weapons.

    Which raises HUGE concerns due to attack animation delay. Especially for warriors. Will there be 1h/oh counterparts made available (this also feeds into the Eternal weapons for tanks question) or are we finally going to see a combat system revamp/wardrobe revamp that was previously said to be near impossible? Or are we just SoL?

    Really curious what this 'best' solution to cleric/warrior tanking is.

    Can we get someone to address the lag issues with the fortress siege?

    Also can Keyens explain his logic on the "balancing" going on currently.

    They need to add an option to recycle Planar Fragments so we get Cosmic Cores for free......

    ↑↑ This ↑↑

    For guilds that were fielding 20 players for previous content, and in the current content there no longer being any 20 man raiding, they'll be running 2 raids of 10. Which increases the count from 2 to 4 tanks being needed.

    I only enjoy tanking, for the most needed spec in the game (i.e. Warrior & Cleric Tanks) for non-pvp related content, is akin to be playing poker and not be allowed to use any face cards, when the the others get to use those face cards, is an insult of the highest degree.

    Not too mention the other classes that prefer the use of a 1 hander/off-hand over the 2 handed versions.

    With both of the above scenarios being forced into relying upon complete RNG (which a number of us are still waiting on even getting our first lesser essence to finally drop from Rifts) is a slap in the face as well.

    From my latest testing, dual-wielding still does more damage (nowhere's near as much before the fix to Icy Blast/Shock Pulse corrections though) than a two-hander. Not too mention, in my opinion, dual wielding animations also looking far, far better than the two-handed (in which some of the two-handed ones not even working any more).

    The image suggested nothing. You made that assumption yourself. Actually, if anything, the image suggested the opposite since it mentioned the "instant complete option".

    Mrs. Brasse and Mr. Wavy Haired God,

    If we do the objectives for the upgrades that we are not on will those be updated once the weapon is at that stage?

    EX. If we did 40 experts or completed 20 zone events, would those objectives auto complete when our weapon gets there? or would we need to redo them?

    Brasse, with regard to eternal weapons, what are Trion’s plans on handling the issue that warriors and clerics need specific tanking and DPS weapon sets (MH+Shield vs. MH+OH/2H), while mages, rogues, and primalists can tank and DPS with a single weapon set (2H, MH+OH, 2H)?

    This issue has been discussed unnoticed prior to the release of Starfall Prophecy and has been raised again with the announcement of eternal weapons.
