IDK what everyone else's deal is or why the entire community has ignored this post, but I want to say thank you for posting this.

I get to play MAYBE twice a week, and without some tips picked up from this video people like me would never finish this dungeon. So again, on behalf of everyone this helps, and in spite of those too elitist or selfish to say it, thank you.

I'm not playing but I still think it was great to see that long of footage from the dungeons. Looks like fun and I'm glad the game is headed the right direction.

This.

To use a meme: Haters gonna hate. So long as you're being respectful and pleasant, any karma bashing will generally be fixed pretty quickly by the vast majority of Zam's community.

I could do without the karma whining, though. A couple of rate-downs and you feel the need to make the second and third posts in the thread complaints about it? Or was the third post more of a general "Waah, no one's paying attention to me!" post? Either way, if other people's opinions bother you, posting actual content is a better way to change things than whining.

The comments were because even though I posted something GENUINELY helpful, people feel the need to rate me down immediately.

"Waaaah! It's been 3 hours and nobody bothered to post in my thread XD. Better go and BUMP it up incase people missed it ^.^ Hey ppl why you no reply my thread ^^? omg HATERS!orz" *bumps twice over the course of 7 minutes*

It's just funny how OP gets all insecure and starts TRIPLE POSTING because nobody jumps to praise his video, and then wonders WHY. Bumping your own post because nobody replies is considered spamming on some forums.

Man this place is sour.

I wasn't bumping my thread, I was responding to rate downs.

I guess its not kosher to "reply" or "talk" about being karma camped.

Don't worry too much, Mog.

As in real life, what you hear on the forums is the voice of the vocal minority.

My LS is thankful for your videos.

I see you skipped most mobs yet finished with only ~20 minutes. Is it really necessary to pull this kind of BS to make it in time? The time limit seems way too short.

The dungeon was designed with that mechanic in mind, you can even see SE themselves using that strategy in the preview video they put out a month or whatever ago.

As per the official forum post, thanks for spreading the word to other forums with the vid Mog, it opens up some good tips for people who are unaware, and allows them to see how multiple chests are received at the end.

Any luck with figuring out the 5th yet? See some of the theorizing going on the lodestone forum post.

Edit:
People need to keep in mind too that this dungeon has multiple purposes, it can be a great grind spot for 45+, clearly has chest puzzles that need to be answered (and still one is alluding folks), you can just go on a chest run, you can kill mobs, whatever you want to do/your group is capable of. There's very few other MMO instances I've tried which have given players this kind of freedom for their time.

I was happy to bring it from sub-default to decent when it had no replies. No idea what the **** is up people's when as you said, it was a legitimately helpful post.

Whining about one ratedown surefire way to avoid any more. Your plan is bulletproof.

Protip: It's annoying. Crying and calling attention to it as if you've been dealt some great injustice isn't helping your cause.

PS: Where's video 4?

Thanks for posting the vid.

I can't help but think combat looks... weird. A lot of people kind of standing around, a few hits going on.

Nice to see a place I'm never going into but seeing Rank50s run thru with no fear is depressing. This is a cave with stairs SE need to give the high level mob houses and furniture so you guys can bust in and break stuff and loot and burn stuff.That's what good guys do when fighting evil.

The condition for the final chest is speed.

Our first successful attempt:

You must complete the kill of Batraal in under 25 minutes.

All other chests must be skipped to get it in time.

It's pretty tough.

So I guess each chest has a unique set of items it can contain? Way nice of SE to make getting the final chest exclude all other chests so nobody will ever want to go for it.

Hey Doctormog appreciate the info and the videos was wondering if you could just post a video of the run to the 5th chest. I would like to see paths taken not taken stops timing those sorts of things on the run. I would just like to see what it takes to get there with 40+ minutes. I think thats the most important part is the run to get there with enough time to actually beat betraal within the time limit. thanks in advance if you do end up putting up another vid if not its all good thanks anyway for everything else.

Ya same here, it's really the first thing that stands out, it looks extremely boring. Seems fluid and all, just, blah I guess? Needs more mayhem.
