      Unfortunately, those cheating bosses are not "Stupid as a rock." The AI has been upgraded considerably over the last couple of years and it boils down to Wizards, their spells, and soon gear stats being on the chopping block. Very little is being done to ADJUST CHEATING BOSSES.


      The fact that KI has gone overboard with Cheats on many bosses just makes it much harder for many players to continue. All those "LATE" arrivals on virtually ALL BOSSES is becoming not only frustrating but ridiculous. The don't take into account that large numbers of players DON'T have computers that allow them to move as fast as needed to beat that Cheat. Even though I have a fairly new laptop, there are times one of my wizards does not get in fast enough to beat that "LATE" CHEAT.....


      With some bosses, there are so many cheats it is nearly impossible for Casual players to get a single hit. Too many bosses are, no shields or blades, no traps, you can't blade another team member, no heals any kind. Some even have it to the point you can't use a spell over 4 pips.


      The only thing KI has done with the "Spell Balancing", is make it that much harder for most casual players to advance. This last round of Test Realm with only a 20% reduction in Boss/mob HP was not tested LONG enough. Too many bosses still retain all their cheats, MANY of their spells at FULL strength. But we were told that test had to go live on schedule.


      I really think most players would have been happy to continue with Test Realm until ALL adjustments were made..... Sort of like a Beta Test.


      I have researched every boss in Empyrea including those in SIDE QUESTS. Normally, those that are set up for "HARDCORE" players does not show up in a Quest Guide but this time, they did. For the first time in all the years I have played (with breaks here and there), I WILL NOT be doing side quests in Empyrea that include ANY boss that cheats. Besides, side quests no longer give XP so not really worth it. Even the amount of Gold given is not worth battling a cheating boss.



      Even though it would have still be shut down during the weekends. Playing between Live and Test would have been a comparable way of seeing just where more adjustments needed to be made. As it is, many are dealing with a lot of Bugs/Glitches that seem to crop up after EVERY UPDATE GOES LIVE.



      NOTE: Sadly, we don't have any Guides for Empyrea Bosses like we have had with other worlds. ANY GUIDES for Empyrea bosses are now on other rather obscure sites.

      Well, I'm embarrassed to say that there is at least one guide to one cheating boss, Medulla.

      I know 'cause I wrote it.

      It currently languishes on page 56 of the Fairegrounds and in the time from August 2018 to now, it has not received even ONE SINGLE REPLY (and only a few views).

      Seriously, it must have been the worst written guide in the human history of such things.

      But it works.

      I beat him with nineteen wizards using it.

      Failing (!) that, you can look at Vanessa Mythdust's guide to GF Spider in Mirage, which is what I based my guide on.

      And anytime you and your grandson need a questing partner for a cheating boss, I'm available.

      My apologies, I did forget about the Medulla guide. It was so surprising to see all the Boss Battle Guides we have had in previous world then to only have one in the Empyrea guides.

      Thank you for your offer. I will remember that.
