I find the difficulty of the Grenth chain so completely out of balance with other world events such as the "dragon" events. It is completely unacceptable that this event goes unbeaten so often while the shatterer, teq, sb and jorlag are all dispatched regularly and with no level of skill or coordination. Sad really.

It's not all that difficult. I think like most other places there just aren't enough people ever there.

Before. there and everywhere else, got done every time it came up.

I haven't bothered with it much but whenever I have it has always failed. The new "drop from the ceiling" skill is really a buzz kill.

To the lonely desperate people shouting in map chat for help at Grenth I say:

Sorry I have had my fill of responding to these requests only to find a couple of noobs in over their heads with no clue as to how to beat this PITA event.

I can complete several other dynamic events in Cursed Shore in just the time it takes to reach Grenth since it has no close by waypoints and involves passing lots of trash risen.

I am not so 'PRO' that I can carry two noobs and survive this event, so good luck to you, I am going to stick with the golden triangle, Penitent, Shelter's Gate and Jofast. What about the downtime between events? Use that to transfer collectibles to your bank, vendor whites and blues, and TP the rest.

Also as a ranger the Grenth event is a classic example of how broken pets are.  The crappy new culling system shows me every particle effect, but maybe 3 foes and 3 allies, and the still persistent lag is so bad, your practically dead before any red circles display on your screen.

Lets do the math.
Chances the person shouting for help at Grenth knows what they are doing:  50% or less
Chances there are more than two players at Grenth when the above shouter calls for help: 50% or less
Chances even with competent players there you will get downed at least once due to the lag at Grenth: 75%
Chances the risk/reward (loot from Grenth minus repair bills) will be greater than time spent at the golden triangle: 1% (chests have a 1% or less chance to drop rares or better).

The only time I risk Grenth now is if there is a group I know going, or its prime time and someone posts in map chat a positive Grenth status report (Boss at X% health etc.). If its not prime time, forget it.

As to the OP's question/request, just use the vendor at Melandru, it's open far more often.

This Link


Its usually right. Still in beta but I'm sure dragon temple will have a full version eventually. I guess just update that as much as possible.
