At 5:00 Pacific Standard Time, The Empyrean Order and The Seventh Veil successfully cleared a Tier Two Escalation for the first time in the history of the game! Many thanks to all of the people who turned out to take down the escalation in the last few days, it could not have been done without the effort of each of you. Special thanks to Fierywind who put in a lot of time coordinating the raids on the escalation, our crafters for supplying the many sets of gear, those who guarded the raid groups, and all the dedicated people who scouted the hex for events!

Here stands the valiant group that defeated the Ustalavian Champion!

We look forward to future events and clearing further hexes!

A triumph of meaningful choice and exploitation to be sure. Congrats guys.

Gratz! Was the final loot a Cloth Cap? (only for insiders). ;)


LOL, I'm not going to ask exactly what the boss loot was, I don't want the spoiler.

But was it satisfying loot or disappointing loot? I only ask because the devs have heard so many of us suggest better boss loot.

I think the answer was "no loot at all", actually...

Yeah, the loot drop for the boss is something coming on Thursday with EE4. All they got now was satisfaction! :)

The Cloth Cap is an Everquest reference. It's a level 1 newbie item with like 1 AC. It was the default drop for when a loot-droptable on a mob had not been implemented yet. Often new expansions to the game weren't quit finished yet when they were released and when the players finally had beaten some big Raid end-boss, it could drop a cloth cap. Rage and fury ensued, off course, especially since those encounters were often not well balanced yet so could be really tough and buggy.

So the "Cloth Cap" basically means "all that work for this..."

Reading Damocles' answer, it seems they were clothcapped. Should at least drop a large bundle of tier 2 resources!

When DAoC patched their dragon zones in, each dragon had "a cloth cap" and "a fine steel longsword" as part of their common drop table, as a snide homage to EQ. They were actually some of the best items in the game at the time.

Ha, did not know that. Only played DAoC for the first 6 months. Great memories though. Actually my first PvP.

Out of about 15 escalation runs I was there for 6 of them, and the last one, it was fun, and we were able to clear out all the hexes around. The last boss has a nasty stun, and expendables don't work on them at all.

It was satisfying to be sure, the biggest worry I have was the drop rate on expendables. They were still very low, basically, we didn't even get enough of them to outfit everyone that participated 1 expendable.

Hopefully with the new changes to Bosses it will put more expendables into the game.

Goblin Squad Member

Is that the drop rate on the last run, or all 15 runs? Because out of 15 runs, you should have gotten at least enough to give everyone 1 expendable. I've gotten like, 5 of them just tonight running solo.

Goblin Squad Member

That is out of 15 runs, Tink. Yea, they should have been dropping more, but they weren't. Recipes, they were dropping fine, but expendables were far and few between. One day we didn't even get 1.

On the other hand, an Ogre Lout tossed me a level 3 fireball spell with it's dying breath yesterday.
