What does the "Burst" modifier mean? I found out that Turbo means "Monsters run, attack and cast 60% faster.", but couldn't find anything about Burst.

Could all active modifiers and their effects please be added to the "Rules" listed above each event post? Right now it only shows Hardcore and Solo and their meaning, but neither Burst nor Turbo.

Some of these races seem just thrown together, I don't understand the rewards like this is the same lvl req as the regular burst for points but will be WAY harder, the "signature race" 2hr solo is twice as long rewards half the points.

I'm not a hard core racer or anything but I think the challenge of the race/time invested should equal the reward!

Problem is, in most cases race modifiers are easily worked around by using a different build or grabbing a few different items; immolation, for example, already gets a lot easier if you equip one or two ruby rings.

Turbo races limit you in your ability to escape, keep distance or group monsters up, so anything that focuses on killing the enemy before they can do anything of value (Think burst mages, crit archers, powerful melee hits) has a great advantage.

Since it's fairly easy to adapt to these modifiers, it's a bit odd to increase the rewards you get for them, don't you think?
Literally had 5 resyncs happen when fighting the first pack. Gathered up a pack, go to groundslam, get resynced and groundslam misses everything x 5. How is this getting worse?
The desync was absolutely atrocious. I mean some desync we are all used to but I could not engage a single mob without resyncing several times.
OK, I Know this is about being ridiculously hectic - but could you please remove all the dialog and all the skillpoint confirmation rubbish for this type?
