Wait wait.....Proto Ultima is in Dun Scaith? WTF??
Which is good because he takes arguably less time to kill than she did because of her stupid flans.
couldn't they have at least given him his own trial arena/queue? even a FATE would've been better than this, jesus christ
So this drops chests now on that boss? Whats the 260 piece just another dun sparce armor piece?
They could have just as easily given this its own 8 man flavor for something like that, and with how fast he melts with 24... I think 8 would have been your standard 4-5minute primal fight.
Regardless, if they wanted to keep people queueing until the expac they could've:
-Let people trade Ultima tokens for multiple crystalized sand/umbrites and other relic bs
-Let the DF queue pop with fewer than 24 players if nobody is queued (similar to Frontlines), let premades enter with fewer than 24 players
-Put it in WT
In the end even if it did die within a couple months, I don't understand why that's suddenly a concern - that's about the shelf life for a lot of content in this game.
The way they implemented this "trial" was just pure lazy bullshit and I don't know why they bothered. Even Odin was handled better and that trial was worthless too.
Frankly, I'm happy with a free, easy i270 accessory. Most of them are pretty good stat-wise too.
