I second that, also no more necrobots in dunc?


Patch notes should clear this up when they're released. The community challenges are separate from patch notes for Chaos season.


Yeah, you're right. I just saw sharky's post and immediately made a post because was thinking about the same thing.

to be clear..

"Trickster: This challenge requires you to record a video and post the link here. Your time starts when you enter the zone via the entrance and stops when Valthek is dead and his drops are visible."

This means entering the Yshari Sanctum from Spider Forest or entering Valthek's 'zone' ?

It just says you have to solo the boss, and switching gear could be another 10-15 seconds lost to put the sets on. Can you have a second char wearing the sets join the game right at the boss area as long as the second one does the fight solo, while the first one rushes the level with his main gear, then leaves for the fight?

It's referring to the Yshari entrance obviously.

It's a solo challenge - you can't have any assistance from other players while doing the run. Same goes for doing stuff like clearing monsters to valthek first and only then starting etc.

So we will waste 50 xis runes finding out that recipe? Unless there is a glitch way directly to Valthek this challenge is impossible. Maybe this is foreshadowing some chaos changes like him standing directly at the entrance.

:D how will xis runes help? (you dont even know if those recipes require any)

I just tried to reach him and measured my time, it took me almost 8 minutes(but im highly out of practice and not asian) so this challenge (if unchanged) is really tough

Just guessed.

12-8 mins is possible for the way yes. Some helpful illegal blinks over the walls are maybe not found yet, anyways I highly expect this uber to have some weird change. Chaos means anything can happen.
