    That is a sizable post o.o

    One thing that i am wondering: Imagine i open a portal to an 'uberboss', but then find out that i'm not powerful enough to beat him. Will this cost me the 3 keys, even although i didn't defeat the boss?
    I'm a bit disturbed by the fact that you apparently need an entire team to beat them. I play solo most of the time, and when i do play with a few friends, it's a lot more casual as they have very little time to play and hence have terrible gear.

    If i have understood it correctly, yes, you will lose all keys although you wont beat the bosses. So you just need to be powerful enough before you enter the uber boss thingy! Go to PTR and try it out so you know how powerful you need to be.. ;)

    great post guys.

    so are we talking about possibility for 1.0.5 patch tomorrow on PTR or on the real server?
  • #27
    Didn't they say that MP only increases monster health and not their damage?
    Don't believe the hype!
  • #28
    No, just that damage scales much less aggressive with MP than health.

    i saw the bluepost for US maintiance over the weekend then i saw 8 hours so yeah, longer than 5-6 hours usually equals patch :P
  • #30
    I was wondering : can you have a stack of multiple keys or are they "unique"?
  • #31
    No news about EU so far? I'm not getting to download any patch, and I haven't seen any blue post regarding the topic..

    Yes, you will lose the infernal machine when you create the portal. You can keep trying until you leave the game. You don't need a team to beat them - however, it is much more efficient to do so since only one of you has to use your infernal machine. And you can fight them at MP1 if you like, though they won't be very likely to drop the ingredients.

    If you can't amaze people with your intelligence, confuse them with your bullshit.

    gehennas is craftable, so you could excite yourself by crafting them. :)

    u should mention about DOBULE DROP RATE OF LEGENDARIES i think so...


    Means nothing when the drop rate for legendary is 1 in a millions. So now your chance of getting it is 2 in a millions. Great.

    Double drop rate is double drop rate. You can throw whatever imaginary numbers around you want, double is still a huge increase.

    Do the keys have a chance to drop with no monster power, or do they only have a chance to drop on MP 1 and up?
  • #38
    Only MP1+ and NV5 stack
  • #39
    So I wonder what's better:

    MP 2 - with like 115% base MF (before NV stacks)
    or
    MP 3 with like 70% MF

    My new helmet doesn't have MF on it; but increased my DPS about 10k or so. I'm thinking MP2 would be better, due to the ~45% extra MF.

    this is untrue to what they want, nv5 is all you need for it to drop, the MP only increases the chance of the key dropping by 10%, up to 100% at mp10
