Does anyone think this will actually change skunk merc behaviour? I'm curious because I'm not seeing why a camper wouldn't just look at your notes and see that the drops are now the same...and P3 is still massively easier. Shadows will drop in P2 but I'm guessing a lot will already have the ring.

I think it will help because instead of waiting 30 min for p3, they can do a full dump in p2 for same reward. Besides, the p2 pushers are now more likely to push since reward has been upped, an it's not so insulting if someone waits for p3

I think the issue is more with the essence and other loot drops in phase 2 not being matched to the difficulty of the mobs. I don't see phase 2 dropping impure shadows but hopefully more pure essence and silver.

Snap. I hit p2 anyways, but this will be helpful, as I can hit just p2 with a strong toon that already has the ring and get a better essence payout, so I'm more likely to be happy about leaving p3 for the weaker / shadow-needing toons and missing the p3 payout.

I get what Ilyana is saying, and I agree - for any serious skunk and weaker toons, we'll see more of the same. But it's a move in the right direction and hopefully we'll see more people contribute if there's something worthwhile for their efforts.

Crap. I am about 4 hrs into my 48 hr amulet. Does this screw up my empower timing, or will it still be going upon the server coming back up?

It will be fine. I run enchants all the time during upgrades and they have always been fine.
