Has new Nyzul been "figured out?" Have people practiced enough, revised strategies enough, and honed their skills enough that beating the Floor 100 boss is now do-able reliably?
Every time I see somebody in this gear, I'm inclined to think that they cheated to get it. Am I off base in assuming this? I'd like to hear from the people who have been spamming this event and are better informed about it than I am. Is it still next-to-impossible by legitimate means?
I realize that it is ***possible*** to get lucky with floor jumps and get to 100. For someone to have had that sort of luck often enough to get the whole set of gear just seems about as likely as hitting the mega-millions every single month.
9/10 times, you're right in your assumptions... Probably even closer to 10/10.
A lot of the time though it's the same situation that Fynlar mentioned, where someone will join a shout join, and notice that everyone else is somehow moving at flee speed, or something like that. Though it's not like the people that are cheating go around advertising it, the closest you'll see is a shout in Port Jeuno "(Nyzul Isle) Uncharted (Do you need it?) (Scholar) x2 (Yes, please) must have Skype.
Not that I can blame the people that do cheat though, the devs put some of the best gear in the game at floor 100, make it near impossible to get there, and then insist multiple times that "It can be done with a little luck and a well equipped party." What they conveniently forget is that "luck
" can be replaced with "cheating
", and with limited attempts at the event, nobody wants to go with anything other than 2 SCHs and 4 Legendary weapon holding WARs or SAMs, effectively tossing "well-equipped party
" out the window and replacing it with "Four players spamming Ukko's Fury or Fudo/Shoha
." The devs seems to be unwilling to budge on the issue. They know that the large majority or people that have this gear got it as a result of cheating, and they know that getting to/winning floor 100 is near impossible as is. As they refuse to acknowledge either of these points, it's clear what message that they're sending to the playerbase... Edited, Jun 21st 2012 4:59am by KodoReturns
