    Default (deep) Chardok... wtf?

    soooooo... i've been there for an hour or two for the last 2 nights, and between those 2 sessions have cleared 80% of the named mobs down in the castle area. (the rest have been repeated PH's). this includes the queen, the boss of the zone. sum total? 0 chests. not even treasured, just no chest.

    this is the hardest portion of a contested dungeon, what the shit is going on here? i can only assume that there is not SUPPOSED to be itemization on these mobs, because there's no way in hell this got all the way through months of beta and whatnot without anyone noticing.

    and if there's supposed to be itemization, and the devs just never got around to it... again, what the shit is going on here? this isn't a top tier raid zone that people won't be prying into for a few weeks, this is a simple T8/9 contested dungeon. if anyone thought for a second that people weren't going to be L80 and cracking this stuff open after a week, they're delusional.

    Was about to make a post about the exact same thing. Europa was also down there all last night, did not see you guys though We got a few treasured of the librarian and treasure keeper or w/e. But only got adepts. Love the zone, but no loot kinda sucked to say the least.

    Giving SOE the benefit of the doubt but usually no chest means a quest mob.

    If you had to clear a PH to pop a named, that named should be dropping something. Because PH's are now giving AA (or quest updates) for their named counterpart, it would be a good indication that, perhaps, a PH that does not give AA may be holding a place for a named that will not be dropping any loot.

    we thought the same thing at first, noah, but then common sense kicked in, and i realized that having like an entire 1/3 of a difficult contested dungeon act as "quest updates" instead of dropping actual loot didn't feel right. the castle is laid out in the archetypical "dungeon crawl" setup, and it should be dropping loot appropriate for its level. so i'm sticking with the premise that someone just didn't have time to itemize it and for some reason they didn't think anyone would be killing shit there this early.

    btw, deep sebilis -- past the water -- has some nameds that i've seen, and is exhibiting some of the same issues. possibly missing a few named spawn too. myconid caves and no myconid named/PH, huh? with all the effort made to mirror parts of EQ1, there better damn well be a myconid named!

    if the mobs are simply quest updates there's no reason they should have placeholders; that's poor MMO design if so.

    I'll take a look. Quest mobs shouldn't have placeholders and named mobs should all be itemized. Taking a quick look at the queen, she has loot attached that looks like it should be dropping (Always at least a treasured, chance at a couple of legendary). Checking the logs she is dropping loot sometimes, but not every time like she should. So something is going on.

    Any other named in particular that I can take a look at in Chardok, I'll check out Sebilis as well.
