Hellu everynub and Aeria Team and welcome to my "Worldboss-Keres" Feedback Thread!
With Patch 42 the Keres Worldboss has been introduced, spawning in Viridian Steppe. Here I want to give my ideas and critique about her~
+ every Keres a chance for a different ground element (lighnting, fire, dark, ...?), which makes the fights more interesting. I count this as a pro points, but it can also be a negative point (I'll come back to this later in my feedback)
+ It doesn't take hours to kill her
- Her drops are more than outdated and not motivating at all, noone really WANTS to bother with her with these drops
- Her reset range is so small, as soon a ranged char takes aggro from the melees, she tends to reset very fast
- the Lightning Element is almost impossible to solo, due to the lift up
About the drops
Following pictures show all the possible drops:
For me personally the only semi-good drop would be the Dungeon Lord's Secret Stone Chest. The rest is simply outdated.
With the, also in Patch 42, introduced EXP-Curve everyone is easily reaching 90+. Level 70 gear, Enchantments and 3xLuminous Secret Stones (which I mostly got) are really demotivating. You can get the enchantments with DP, noone uses the Keres Set and there are no people that run short on Luminous Secret Stones. I also would remove the Unidentified Costumes, those we get in dungeons also.
I am honestly disappointed and I am asking myself: Why don't take the great opportunity?
With this curve new players reach endgame level without gear, why don't make this worldboss as aid for those people. Put some rare drops as in lvl 80 Recipes, green lvl 80 Enchantments, Costume Enchantments (orange would be already enough, ofc NT), Dazzling Eidolon EXP Crystals, 15th-Order Forts (or even the other ones too), maybe even make her drop Timesilk and Soulsucker. I could also Imagine coreless Lordswrath/ArcaneFrost/PerfectWar drops, Equipment Star Fusion Stones, etc. The list on better drops is so long.
Just anything more useful than these current drops would help with the popularity with Keres-Worldboss.
These are for now my thoughts! I might add some others later, after I hunt her a few more times.
Here at last some pictures from various hunts I participated at:
