Elrey.5472 Posted August 28, 2021 Share Posted August 28, 2021 (edited) Let's be honest, this event is not played often anymore, and a HUGE part of it is because it's instanced in the eye of the north. Do you like the marionette being instanced? Pros: You can technically get into the map with only the persons that you want, more control over the squad (in reality, almost nobody does it). Cons: It's hidden after a system that it does as much as possible to hide this event from major population to even know it exists, the scrying pool really? In eye of the north, really? Why did Anet not just drop it into the map of Lornar, like it was years ago? Why it isn't in the open running on a timer like any other World Boss? I really don't understand why they took that decission but it severely crippled the replayability of this event. If you add it to world bosses timer, a lot more players would discover it and after a few months of re-learning the major population would farm it daily as we do with world bosses. Tequatl used to fail for months but then people learnt what to do and now we got a cool daily dragon hunting. The World Boss Timers are already in need of an upgrade because some events are not that interesting (fire elemental dies in 10 seconds after 10 minutes of boring golem escort. Or Taidha, which is incredibly boring to break the door with the barrels) and more interesting events could take the spot of boring ones. After all there's a precedent, since a world boss was removed from the timer many years ago, the Fire Chaman in Iron Marches. EDIT: To clarify, I love the event, which is why I feel after spending so much time re-creating such an interesting fight like the Marionette, it's a waste having it instanced. Anet developers and designers are people after all, and we all sometimes make bad decissions. This was one of them. Can we fix it?
