EDIT: Wow...380MB and going.

That little Z or lightning bolt + the MB amount IS an indicator of downloading, right? I've noticed that in the game for some time now and always just figured that thing was downloading the patches and whatnot.

EDIT 2: Good lord! 545MB. How big is this?!
Holy C*** I didnt let it finish downloading at login screen nowits 545MB+? rather big.

I think one of the effects the latest skill balance changes had was trying to make other builds and professions match in effectiveness with b/p ranger groups entering Tombs UW .PyroNuker and Warrior skills mostly been boosted imo.Rodgort's Invocation fries them extra crispy now.

Recently its been all about barrage/pet rangers + one MM and/or a Monk groups forming up to go get their, incresingly getting cheaper in price, green drops.You needed to wait alot to get yourself in a team if you were not a b/p (before update). Seems like b/p is the fastest way to do it.I wanted a bigger slice too so I made myself a R/Me he's been a 20 with a 19 pet since divinity coast mission, still a long way to go for him.

EDIT:imo green drops are getting less and less exciting unless you get a Victo Shield, but the challenge in hoh is still there and gives you a sense of accomplishment when you finish it, even when you get no drops.
