    Default SFP Obersevations

    I am pretty much a solo player. That is changing slowly as I gear up more but for now I am still a solo player. These are things that I have observed.

    So far the content is very doable by oneself. However it seems clunky and doesn't flow as smoothly as Nightmare Tide which I am told doesn't flow as smoothly as Storm Legion and before.

    Zone Events invasions come in 65-66 zone at 66. I understand there is percentage difference in hit and damage between the levels but here it seems exaggerated. I am tier 3 - tier 2 gear and I found that the mobs are very difficult to kill at 65. There is one or two monsters that are bigger then the rest that seem to take no damage. Fast forward to level 66 and things change dramatically. Mobs that I once struggle mightily with present little to no problem provided I don't get a dozen or more all at once. That smacks of a imbalance.

    Equipment - At some point during the last week hit was added to equipment. But equipment still lacks AP, SP, PC and CP. The lack of these stats makes it very unattractive despite having vastly superior primary stats (Armor, Strength, DPS...etc). I understand that focus will be on planar fragments to get the stats that the equipment lacks. But this is going to slow going. It might take some individuals the entire expansion to get back to the CP and AP they had prior to Expansion pack.

    Onslaughts - Just as much a pain in the *** here in SFP as they are in Nightmare Tide. Perhaps worse because the Onslaught never seems to end until the player gives up and walks away.

    Tempest finisher Skyfall has more damage in the expansion prior to the application legendary power then it does in Nightmare tide. Intentional?

    Legendary abillity Dire Coruption does not trigger from Shadow of Dread. There seems to be no way to apply the normal ability by itself.

    The per-requisites for skills (mining, foraging..etc) don't seem to be in play.

    Equipped SFP weapon with no hit or attack power. DPS went up ~2000 points, hit and attack power stayed the same. Armor deducts and add hit as needed. You overall total will rise and fall. But not from weapons it appears.

    Would be interesting if we could trade/sell non-equipped planar fragments.

    When the game functions it seems to be smoother overall. I have no clue if I am running the 32 bit or 64 bit client at the moment. I haven't invested the time to find out.

    On idols of whatever it seems to be an all or nothing deal. If one attacks they all attack. I haven't found a way to lure off one monster yet.

    Any ranged enemy seems to do more damage the any melee enemy. Sometimes melee does nothing at all despite the animation happening.

    Tempest finisher Skyfall only does its tooltip damage. It never crits. Where as Dire Blow does and frequently. Getting 100k out DireBlow is not unusual. Skyfall has never gotten beyond 36k.

    Yeah...that's the point of the planar fragment system.

    The profession vendors haven't been added to Allitu yet. Go to TB if you want to start doing profession stuff.


    Remember this is still Beta. Expect a bunch more stuff to be added day one, and more to filter in afterwards.

    The "Remember this is still beta" just doesn't cut it now I am afraid... You posted this on the 12th November, the Xpac is supposed to be released on 16th, that's pretty poor that 4 days out not everything is in the Beta. it smacks of not been ready, far far from the Original Beta standards, even the SL Beta and NMT betas were better than this. I hope they have the sense to sort out these things before release.

    Beta is to test things and iron out bugs, now 3 days out and nothing to test, how can they fix it if we haven't found the bugs?

    Live testing. It's a thing.

    I could be wrong, but i think this is intentional, there wouldn't be any crafting trainers/stations added to Alittu, Tempest Bay will still be the main hub for crafting.

    They were in Drauumheim, but yeah, maybe not. There's no "crafting spot" there.

    In addition to above. The Vendors don't recognize that you have the appropriate currency. They know that you are not the right level or the wrong class but fail to realize that you have currency appropriate to the purchase.

    Also the crafting window does not list any of the new stuff in the comet. Unless of course those recipes have to be bought which i wouldn't think that you would have to for things like mining and foraging.

    Profession vendors won't be added to Allitu. They are staying in TB so players will still visit players who didn't buy the expansion



    And as stated above, there is no ap/sp on gear because you get those stats from Planar Fragments.

    Wasn't referring to the Profession vendors. The ones that are there now have content that can be bought. It is not the experimental stuff that was being sold for 1 platinum. This appeared to be stuff like level 70 armor. Can't remember the name of the currency now but it is the same stuff you get for doing things like carnage quests. When looking through their wares the vendor say platinum, gold, credit and Fragments of Shadow (I think), No Credits, Void stones or any other was listed as acceptable currency at the vendor window.
