    Default Hyper-Thrax Dungeon Thoughts + Suggestion!

    I am very pleased with the new Hyper-Thrax Dungeon. It's a blast being able to find parties so easily, and the economy is really active again (in a much healthier way). I even bought plat for this particular map, which I haven't done for months -- it feels good being able to support STS and to feel rewarded for my time in PvE. The dungeon achieves this balance (imo) very nicely.

    One suggestion I have is the frequency of higher XP orb drops. Cinco, would you be open to the possibility of having higher, more frequent XP orb drops from the mini bosses (i.e., 10k-30k xp orb drops)?

    Let me know what you guys think!

    I completely agree!

    It feels somewhat unrewarding going several runs without a single xp orb only to drop something like 500-2000 xp the next run.

    it seems as if the mobs drop orbs the same frequency as mini-bosses as well. I think mini-bosses should have a higher chance of dropping orbs since they're tougher.

    The new map has been fun but there are a few changes that can be made to make it better. This is one of those changes.

    Considering the alternative I am happy with what has been provided, no need to increase orbs.

    Why? so that this game keeps people coming back for a while, not just cap and leave...

    My only suggestion is that when I die at Ebonthrax, I can rez right there for free.

    I am not sure if it is just me, but Ebonthrax's dragon breath 1 hit kill is super bugy. I like to taunt to get the agro on myself then run behind the gold stacks to try and survive. 50% it works fine and he attacks with no effect, 50% of the time he just sits there and waits. Then I'll come back to join the attack and he will randomly KO me. Pretty annoying as he tends to wait till he almost out of health, have missed plenty of rerolls because he kills me at the last second.

    Maybe I am crazy and seeing things

    Yeah, Ebon is likely still a buggy... fortunately not to the point where it ruins the whole boss experience, though.

    I like the challange of Ebonthrax.

    Keep in mind when you wear a full level 110 elite set and mythic set you will be much stronger and will most likely no longer get one shot death by Ebonthrax's special attacks and when he focuses on one person in the group to pull in towards him and destroy.

    Others have mentioned thst the xp orbs in the new HYPER-THRAX platinum map is rather low and less compared to our previous campaign of MAXX CAVE.

    I definitely agree with you on that. It's a very well balanced boss for a group of 110 geared players. I think the difficulty should remain the same.

    I just hope Cinco can consider increasing the drop rate/types of xp orbs. Sometimes I'll get on these hot streaks, but it never compensates for the longer streaks of getting virtually nothing.

    If possible i would love to see a different lay out for the map

    Put Ol thrax in the middle, with the doors shut, and then a circle around the map to kill enemies, this way WHEN I die, i can rez and just walk back to the middle.

    Doesn't check out. Still got one shot killed wearing almost full mythic 1h str set. Unless the set bonus is some magical armor bonus, it ain't going to add much.
