The hidden ap requirement to actually clear this place at a reasonable pace is ridiculous, you shouldnt need 1000 hidden ap for a 310 monster zone, give me a break. I have 313ap with a pen blackstar mainhand and the clear time for me was snail paced even fully buffed. So just more "content" for people who are already max gearscore that don't even really need these drops lmao. Just another half-baked idea from PA I guess.

Elvia trolls's softcap is 920.

PA straight up lying about these zones being 310 AP. Their world map and monster zone info needs a complete overhaul.

Agreed, all this hype for a new zone with some "content" and a miniscule percent of the playerbase can actually do it. When winter zone released at least the mobs were a reasonable ap and grindable by most people with a gear investment. This is just ridiculous lol. Actual clown driving this ship.

I also have 313 ap with a pen blackstar main and awakening and can grind there efficiently enough. About 20-25 seconds per pack. Went there today to test it with a few guildies and they're all more geared than I am. One of them was getting roughly the same clear speed as me, another is a bit faster. 

What's more important than gear is stats: buffs, addon's and most likely most importantly; class. When I did my test, I was sub 1k total ap. I changed the build after to something a just a bit over 1k and tested it on a pack and it was better for sure, but it was still grindable below that. Since I can hit it with 313 ap, OP should also be able to hit it. If you're hitting that ap value and still struggling, then there's a few things to go down the list before ultimately class choice becomes the last thing that may be the issue.

Which is absolutely shit if true. An endgame grind spot, required for a gear upgrade, that requires you to be at a certain ap value to grind it efficiently might be not grindable on some classes and that's stupid. One of my friends who mains corsair is having some issues with his clear speed, even though he's also at 1k total ap. In that instance, it could be his skill rotation or addon choice, but Idk for sure. That said, his speed wasn't far under mine though and he's 310 sheet ap.

Unless you're doing something wrong, you shouldn't be taking forever to grind the place. A "snail's pace" is a broad term. Its very opinionated and could mean slower than one shotting based off of ones user experience, all the way to actually taking minutes to kill a pack. I actually think the zone is fine, but that could be because my class of choice(that I've been playing since 2016) is wizard and wizard has it easy right now. Awakened Wizard to be specific.

It's day one, people are still figuring the spot out and how to efficiently grind it. It's also a spot that you should be going to when prepared to do so. At our AP levels op, we are prepared to do so.

Are you guys saying PA lying ? Are you saying its  hard class based ? Wow! We all knew this like 2-3 years ago, its just doesn't bothered you then.

Also if PA show real requirements you'll might notice that its  mandatory to have Blackstar gear, remember PA said its alternative gear to already existing to help out new players ? We, that's was a lie as well, Blackstar have sugnificantly more monster AP that unreachable by any other gear and you forced to throw your old gear away ( yes exactly throw away as its useless) and start your grind over.

Also don't forget you must use Vaha/Disto's earrings - afaik PA "posted" screenshot of gear set they only know existing and all content build around its gear so if you don't use it, well get rekt pleb go grind gear first.

Good business to create a zone for the bis boots that only 10% of the playerbase can do, lol.

Boots not the problem they'll be sitting on MP at lowest prices in a month or 2, its artifact from same zone where you need 2 of them.

Whether it's the artifact or the flame or boots or pity, everything is purchasable at the market
This spot is made for those who have too much gear and don't know where to grind with it.
90% of the game's spots are accessible in Tuvala, a gear that you can have full pen in two days with a new account if you have sufficient knowledge of the game
Stop crying about anything and everything

If you want to complain, do it for the hidden APs and accuracy that PA does not want to display on the mini map and which represent 99% of the real prerequisites

If you have enough AP and still have a problem grinding profitably on this spot, check out your class's discord or play Woosa
