Kander slipped an interesting comment into the raging TSO Stinks topic:
FYI: Stay tuned for the Shard of the Day solo quest, with some additional solo content. Cannot say more, but keep your eyes peeled for GU52.
The current plan is that it will take a time investment similar to that of running an entire instance.
So there you have it folks, while people have found a variety of more or less legitimate ways (which not everyone else approved of) to load up on Void Shards, now there is going to be an official way to get 1 shard a day.
It’s an interesting discussion to be sure.
- Fabled armor and Master spells were always designed and intended for Raiding.
- Legendary armor and Adept III spells were always designed and intended for Grouping.
- Treasured/Mastercrafted armor and Adept I/Apprentice IV spells were always designed and intended for Soloing.
Kunark started adding some Legendary-in-name-only as quest rewards. Kunark also added one Fabled reward for a quest series that could be trioed (A Fistful of Metal/A Few Coins More/An Ugly Bounty).
So the question of the day is: Is SoE painting themselves into a corner by making Legendary armor the new “solo” spec? What if in GU52 or the next expansion, you’re just expected to have Legendary armor even to survive doing solo quests?
It makes you wonder what form the new Solo content being added to Lavastorm will take.
Time will tell…
