The quest for the helm - journal entry

#35
This morning my friends and I spotted the mighty Bloodthorn again in the Gardens that are corrupted. The excitement has faded at this point in the journey. We now understand that this is more of a punishment than a journey of hunting treasure. When we first discovered the Garden a little over 5 months ago we were told by some people of a group called BETA Tester that there existed a helmet that would stand as a crown upon anyone that wore it and it would instill powers upon its beholder like never seen before. This helmet was to stand as a symbol to all who embarked upon the challenge of defeating the foes of this world what they could receive if they survive the years of preparing themselves and grinding monster after monster, the endless nights camping the atrocity known as Snorri, the endless journeys spent traversing down the tunnels of Carrowmore to slay the evil Mordris (still haven't figured out why the all powerful known as admin hasn't put one of his fancy stones to ley on near that cave), the life sucked from our souls from the Necromancer, the multiple idols that had to be consumed to resurrect yourself at the feet of Unox, and the fiends in the tops of the tower in the Arcane Sanctum it would all mean something when a helm was bestowed upon them. A symbol that said all of the grind is worth it.

Yet, it has came to pass that we have slain this plant that exists because of Crom's corruption of a once beautiful garden multiple times and yet we find more necklaces and not a single helmet. Today was day 150 of killing this plant for our humble clan, Friday will mark the 5 month mark of us slaying this vile beast. There is no more singing songs of victory around a campfire with the Wardens, rather we meekly look around as someone pipes up, "you realize when Bloodthorn actually finally drops a helmet there is only a 10 percent chance that helmet will be for your class and build." What was once cheers of jubilation now only have moans of understanding. One mate put it like this, "0% of 45 kills means that the odds of a helmet for my class dropping are... 0%."

All of the potions of purification have started to slow our minds a little. Today one of the druids decided to stand in the middle of the poisonous puddles without a potion active just to see if he could survive off of the AOE heals of his comrades. Needless to say there is a stick in the ground marking that spot now with some kind words engraved on the stick. One comrade has lost his mind so much that he started calling the helmet a Ferrari, we took him straight way to the Tavern and he is rethinking his life in the cellar at the moment. The entire trip across the Otherworld and into Stonevale this guy wouldn't shut up about a "status symbol" We finally cast Calm on him and dragged him the rest of the way. We know take turn throwing Perfect Fruit Cakes at him.

I must close this entry as I hear Mordris might be returning sometime in the next 36 hours and even though up-and-coming explorers would love to have the opportunity to slay this beast we must be vigilant as its helmets are still the best in the land.

Swee was trying to be nice and turned his complaint into a story for entertainment value, because let’s face it, after 45 kills and no helm what can one do except make fun of the state of this game.

I will be a little less subtle. I have for some reason that is beyond me now (maybe blind faith that things would improve), have spent a lot of money on the game over the years only to see the same failures with game issues and crap loot tables that have plagued the game since day 1.

My story/complaint summary is simple and can be summed up in one small summary; Fix the damn loot tables.

You have a good base game, no other mobile MMO offers with the look and style of this one. It could be the dominant force in the market, but falls short due to everything including gear and levels being a long slow grind. If only you approached the damn game fixes in small quick updates versus large 15 month projects, you might just have something special.

I thought crafting would have been here and be dominant, instead we have a stupid cooking meta that costs competitive servers millions in gold and hours of churning butter for 8 perfected baras to use for lock battles instead of hunting for loot and bosses.

Fix it. Please.

Just in case VR is still confused: Boost the helm drop rate

For dps classes, the helm is not as big of an upgrade over DG as the team is making it out to be. A DG helm is guaranteed in 1-2 weeks from farming Gele.

Day 151:

Generals Log Supplemental:

Today is a day we do not have to worry about the plant known as Bloodthorn. Plans are to make my way to the Tavern to cook Fruit Cakes and Baras, we want to minimize the precious resources of our clan when the time comes that Bloodthorn returns and we have found Baras to be an effective way of reducing the time and resources. Also there is a need to replenish our store houses of Perfected Baras. These last few months have proven to be exhausting on resources as we worked hard to stave off an uprising of a clan in our area that was dead set on making our life hard. Fortunately as it is with any war you tend to make some allies and we have formed a close alliance with another clan in our community. Our hope is that this alliance is the seed to unite the server and show that we would prefer to work with people outside our clan rather than against them.

Meanwhile, the unrest heightens. We heard of an alternate parallel universe called Epona that has killed their own Bloodthron more times that we have, report is from our supernatural agents that they were fortunate to uncover the almost forgot about helmet on one of their first times killing the plant but that since then they have had the same result we have had.

Other notes from the clan we were able to equip some of our clan members that have started to carry the load in weapons forged from the Elder Dragon Lord, some of our long awaited rogues got some nice weapons to reward them for their sleepless nights slaying the beasts in Gelebrons Tower. Today is a rather exciting one for me as a leader of the clan, I get to discuss with my fellow leaders who to distribute these seeds that Bloodthorn leaves behind that allow for their weapons to glean an even greater power that will be used to slay beasts more effectively in the future. I have found these small rewards to be important to keep morale up for my fellow kin.

Whats that, "Okay Praetorian I will be right there!". Well the elders are wanting to begin our deliberations and I must tend to clan business.

These helms are in now game breaking that they should be this rare. Even if you had 60 toons with a royal helm, how much kill time would be reduced? A minute? Maybe 2?

Even if 2 dropped per month, it would still take 2-3 years before everyone got one. By then, better gear is already out. Why even create something that is so rare, it might never drop?

This is a video game. This is sitting on the couch pressing buttons. Comparing drops in a video game to real life items like ferrarris that require people to work their rear ends off for is silly.

Not sure if it is possible to re-seperate the "Still no BT helm" and the "journal log" thread. I intended on doing the journal log as a fun engaging daily journal that might even add some lore to our adventures. By combining it with Still No BT helm it has taken away from that intention.
