So last night I went along to my first Odin FATE, pretty much to see what all the fuss is about.
Well, as it turns out this was a big mistake and a waste of game time. After getting to the fate and fighting for a minute or two, the server had a massive coronary and a large amount of people in the zone got the 90K error. It took me about half an hour to get back on, it took others over an hour.
During this time I could have been doing something useful, like waiting in DF, gathering, pretty much anything else in fact.
The way I look at it at the moment, this content is broken. The trinket like rewards that come from doing these FATE's are basically vanity items at level 50. Combine this with the very real danger of the server crashing and keeping you out of game for a while, and these simply aren't worth doing
I guess the question is: does this situation occur on other servers too? I expect this will get ironed out as we move down the track, but honestly a lot of the server issues are taking a lot longer to work through than I would have hoped. At the moment this content gets the big AVOID stamp from me, and I'll likely be avoiding it for a while to come. After this I can't see it being much more than a curiosity..
