Light sources
« on: May 07, 2011, 09:16:47 PM »
When I first upgraded my helm to the Lucid Wildroar helm, I had the Charm of the Elusive Eidolon with the restriction of fewer light sources for more power from the HoT vendor in Feerrott about 3 weeks ago. It never acted as though the helm was a light source but then I got killed about 1 week ago and after being gated to the lobby where I was bound, suddenly my charm was acting as the helm is a light source. Anyone have any ideas?

I did check the charm's stats after I equipped the helm and there was no change originally but after that death then the change was there.

More than a week ago - it was the March patch I think, maybe April.  And yes, this is intended...it let them nerf the charm (since it was better than most dropped charms) w/o directly nerfing it.  Silly way to do it but /shrug.

Aye annoying.  Now consider that on my necro I have both the lucid helm AND the Necro's 2.0 which have both light sources.  Since I have not bothered to hunt for a replacement charm, it's actually like 950/950 or so with 2 light sources.. grr.  I was shocked when I saw it.  For us BST's it's not so bad.  What is the other option... the one that grows in power the more hungry you are? Is that the only one? I would HATE to see that freaking message over and over again.. you are out of food, you are starving.  Is there an other option?

I have a charm from Princess Klaknak, its pretty good, not the best but had more reliable stats then the eidolon charm as that was pretty crap when I first got one. No idea if they changed it.

Thanks. Yeah the hunger charm is probably the one I will go after but it"s hard for me to find a group to get since I'm on so rarely anymore.

EDITTED for spelling. Cellphones are nice for checking posts... not making them.
