Found it fun at first but it became really boring after a while... In the last 20 minutes, I was just running after people until they reach the next instance, bail out or portal out.

I don't think I will ever play a longer cut throat mode, really not appealing to me right now :).
Farmed ledge for 40 min or something
Got most of my gear on people "I got to kill him he's running fast he must have ms boots"
it was quite fun, we abused of a few things (and some people), joining instances with more than 2 people in and never fled

mana flasks + 30% elemental res' are broken, I wanted to make a thread about it but ggg needs to decrease the value

Bear trap was awesome
Especially when you put it on the wp

but it can't prevent you from being ganked by 9 lvl folks (esp rangers) at mud flats.

My opinion is still. The plp balance system must be reworked somehow.
At some time ppl realize that they fail at race (and maybe at life?) to challenge brutus (ofc glasscannon build) and begin camping low-lvl areas.

Hateful post.

There is definetly no TP delay because I had him close to death 5% with my replacement bow(if it would be 5 seconds he would have died but he tped instantly) but then I ran out of mana. In the end I ended up in Forest but not his instance last 10 sec. I would have loved it to hunt him during further questing



You never had me 5% hp im pretty sure, and I got you freeze locked and killed you after i came back :D

You got me only once because I had had wrong rings on, that was only because I was expecting spark(forgetting that lvl 1 shadow gem is Freezing pulse), some witches I tried to intercept during lower prison used spark though.
You were at 5% HP pretty sure also I had 1 major problem I lacked 1 green socket and lacked mana because after death I forgot to put spare tps back, it would have been a grave mistake to chase into reach for freezing pulse then believe me but I had really bad luck with colors I found 2 jewelers but somehow the 2nd socket turned either blue or red.

I assumed tping out would take 5 seconds but it didn't else I would have tped out once I got unfrozen before you killed me. Now I know it better that there isn't really a 5 second delay and on the next Cut Throat races once I force players to TP out I will blindspot trap their tps once they get back or TP out myself to find out if they try a new instance from a WP.


1hour Cut-throat is definetly too short. If it would be turbo you had nice chances and make the brutus fight a nightmare.

But on normal 2h or 3h would be the best time.

I still wished the gloves would have gotten a green socket.

Also I didn't try to reach level 13 else I would also had used.

I got into forest and if I it the race would have been slightly longer I would have disturbed your entire progress.Eventually I would have swapped burning arrow in case you try to kill me.

Also I tried to intercept Top 10 players earlier but they either were just resetting instances over and over and the upper passage level I had was really really stupid I ran into 3 dead ends and since WP was close to I just reconnected and took the WP again but I lost 5 minutes there pretty sure.


Chris used /serverrestart I guess because some players ganged up on him ^^


Also it should be easier to join see which instance you joined the last time because when I got back I needed 1 minute to figure out which was your cavern instance again.


But there definetly must be an escape delay or else Cut-Throat will be pointless because I was in the impression there would be such an delay, so I had replacement equipment in case of a death but I easily could have escaped like you when I got to low TP.

It would have been far more interesting if I had gotten into your instance during merveils first form but after the crash I had to run from ship graveyard again, which took quiet some time besides finding your cavern instace the first time. There were 4 instances open. 2 belonged to the "only witches" but I thought it would be to easy to run away on the coves so I followed the partial trail corpses. But like I said it once I got back there were 7 WP instance open and the times were too similar when I left and others joined.

10 more minutes would have been far more intersting because I didn't equip all replacement eq since there were only 2 or 3 minutes left.

I didn't play this event but I think there should either be a 5 second delay (To enable use of the portal, not on every transition) or just decrease the drop rate of portals to 10% or even make them only available from the shops. You should be allowed to retreat, but not from EVERY encounter
Making TPs rare won't solve anything. Players will only end up killng lower characters for id scrolls to buy tps then, if it's turbo mode.

There must be a TP delay if a hostile player comes into range without increasing the time if a 2nd hostile player comes into range, this also includes already opened tps.

If you can bail out instantly a portal gem will be really valuable because you till just bail out with a normal TP join a new instance take the WP and if the player follows you, you WP to town just to take your TP again while opening another one to drain the pursuers amount of tps without being in danger even once.
