  • Interesting Facebook post on bosses


    My first assumption, don't laugh, was that they had changed something with boss drops and I scampered off to the forums with glee.

    Doesn't look like it but it got me curious.

    It seems to imply that player rank or "contribution" in a bossfight is more important than is often discussed? I usually hit to my 3rd threshold and wander off without worrying what points others have. Am I reading too much into this or does it merit discussion?

      no, they posted it on facebook just today.

      while the 3 epic threshold (or 6 epic threshold for legend bosses) are set in place, maybe the players at the top of the board get the better loot while everyone else gets the usual crap?

          Hey guys,

          Just want to clarify before you guys go start testing for hours and hours! Players at the top of the board do not better chances at loot for being at the top of the board. Boss loot hasn't changed and is still based on the thresholds. [keep an eye out for potential changes next year though!]

            I honestly think it's a case of whoever controls their FB account not realizing that words actually mean things so vague posts like this doesn'tt help.
            I took the post to be referring to working towards the estimated thresholds.

            As for player ranks actually mattering, outside of MMB, I don't think they do. From my own experience, I've done about 10 Baron bosses while finishing in the top 10 and I've yet to see a Mafia insignia drop. In contrast, I got 2 other insignias when I put up fewer points. Getting to +350K points ain't cheap so I've become less inclined to continue trying. Of course, you can always argue that I'll need to do more than that but I usually get several copies of the worst drops per collection.

                  Re: Interesting Facebook post on bosses

                  I think the amount of effort vs reward in this game is terrible. I played Wow (world of warcraft) for a decade and even if you didn't get the boss drop you needed you would get some semblance of reward during the raid/dungeon. Even if it was small, such as honor/tokens/achievements. In UE you are often rewarded with absolutely nothing of use from bosses or dice jobs... I mean, how many players need five 8* uncommon's from the west side?

                  Topping the charts* giving at least some sort of reward would be a much deserved benefit rather than the crap shoot we have now.

                    My Omakases, Bubbas and Aladdins would beg to differ.

                    In all seriousness though, the community has done a good job in letting PA know we want a change in boss drops and as Renn said above... lets keep an eye out for next year ( hopefully not next year soon ).

                    Funny thing is PA's other game ( Castle Age ) does not have this issue and is going strong in terms of boss drops.

                      In the 2+ years that I have been playing Underworld, it seems to be that Castle Age has always avoided the issues that UE seems to have. The players seem to be pleased over there. I know that you can purchase past black market LT's and their gear at any time, and just seems like it runs so much smoother than the shitastropies over here. If I could just get into playing that game...I've tried a few different times, and still come back to UE in hopes that they have applied the same tactics and fairness here as they have in Castle Age. I just don't understand how the same company owns both games, and they are so much alike, but yet so different...

                        Funny you say that, but I was thinking about this the other day and what keeps me playing castle age is even though I'm a bsi with not even 400 stamina I can still reach thresholds easy and on top of that can still farm monsters to get the alchemy builds. For example a monster I just finished getting the alchemy for was lothorywen, didn't need to spend a dime. Yes I had to farm them slowly but honestly in the end it was worth it. Monsters there just drop loot better

                          This. I really hope next year brings awesome changes to boss drops. They are a total buzzkill in ue. No matter how much I want to try my hand on bosses here, they are just not worth the effort. Which is ironic considering it's supposed to be a better upgrade to castle age, a game I as a bsi, have managed to get a lot of legendary gear through boss hunting. That too With only 300 stamina /energy 2500/1000 at/df and slow kill groups. They are much better organized because people know they can get good rewards if they work together. Not at all like ue bosses where we can kill them to infinity but still get the same useless drops 99.999999% of the time.

                            We aren't happy with where it's at and are making changes - it's definitely on our radar - once we know more we'll post some more info

                              I just noticed the old skin bosses (which I love by the way, way better than the new skin that require insane stam to beat) the old ones now have the fraction stam hit. E.G. If you have 39stam and do a 40stam hit you don't have to wait for that last 1stam to hit. I love this feature as it allows you to power level.

                              Also again, I really dislike the new bosses/reskined bosses. I liked the old ones where you did more points and take high counter dmg. I understand the thresholds are supposed to be lower (old thresh from rpc is almost half)but they **require much more stam to kill. Also newest boss War Hounds has a 2x epic thresh as the same as old bosses 3x epic thresh. So you're basically using 4x the amount of stam and the amount of junk epic still drop.
