    Item score has bin on items wince DoV beta and was just hidden from site after the beginning on DoV Beta. I dont think it has anything to do with WoW players.

    The quality of several pieces of Skyshrine heroic challenge mode loot has been increased.

    Actually it hasn’t. logged in to find that my ring (nerual band of internalism) was left completely unchanged, which if you go to the official forums can see it is one of the pieces of gear being listed as being disproportionate. since petitions fail to go through anymore, I started to send bug reports. Before and now after this update. None of which have ever been formally acknowledged.

    I’ve been playing this game for too long. I started playing when this game first came out and I was still in the military then. It used to be you could announce or ask in open chat in any chat level for a GM for help, and you would get an immediate response….

    Now just to test to see if anyone even pays attention to chat channel logs, I typed abunch of ridicoulus stuff in a popluar chat channel and have yet to fret or worry about getting my account suspeneded or banned. (which had I done that when gms were around I would of on the spot got sent a message, subsequent warning or even an immediate kick to character select followed by and email saying my account has been suspended for x amount of time)

    The point I’m trying to make isn’t so much that I care that the ring did not get modified (its all water under the bridge at this point) its that there’s no one even there anymore in the support sectors that were told to use that even respond. The Official forums are a choke and pms get ignored, even if the complaint or notice is a game breaking mechanic. When you have a dev post a hotfix stating x,y,z are to be adjusted and the adjustments don’t go through, you have serious problems. When you cannot ingame petition because the process is so slow it never goes through (and yes I have a good gaming comp) you have a problem. When you have to petition via using the bug report method and you never get an email sent to you acknowledgeing a response to your inquiry, you have serious problems. When you PM a dev who is currently online about a bug, a mechanic failure, or an exploit that is significant to game play and you get no response ever back you have a serious problems.

    I used to be a huge supporter of this game, and did numerous beta’s. As of now my toons are deleted and my subscription is canceled.

    Feldon and Dethdlr I want to personally thank you for such a wonderful job you guys have done with this site over the years. I hope you guys can make it past the summer with the way this game is going. I wish all of you who are still playing, the best and that game remains fun for you.

    Best regards-

    “The quality of several pieces of Skyshrine heroic challenge mode loot has been increased.”

    I think ‘several’ and not ‘all’ is a key modifier in that sentence.
    I get where you’re coming from though.
