    Why not just make the champions an instanced boss encounter? limit only one account per person going in. Possibly as well even limit the amount of individuals that can go in? Or even the amount of individuals that can get platinum from the boss. Much like the new taming quest where it restricts the bonds.

    I hope this is a joke.

    We have enough instanced content here, imo.

    I noticed some changes to the PvM leaderboards (showing just 2014 data now, I presume).

    What are the eventual plans for the leaderboard? Will it refresh every year in January? I personally would love to see a lifetime leaderboard by monster still available somewhere. (maybe it is and I can't find the link?)

    I love the escort one minute change.
    For certain monsters that are skin able, such as a stone harpy, when you skin it, it's possible for the feathers to be mostly under the container. Luckily the one time this happened, it was a small enough container I could just grab the feathers. Why does a stone harpy have feathers anyway? :)

    Don't listen to this guy, he's an idiot.

    After a couple rounds with "Newcoon", I'm changing my tune a little bit. He obviously needed to be fixed, either plat reward reduced or made a lot tougher. But both happened, and he is certifiably ridiculous tough now. I've yet to fight any of the other champs since the patch, but the amount of ratman mages Baracoon spawns has to make him one of the toughest champions now.

    This is just a side affect of him moving around more and failure of him to check a large enough range when spawning more ratmen. This has been fixed for patch 53.

    Also if his difficulty has been sufficiently increased we will improve the amount of platinum he provides as well.

    I was wondering if you were going to come back and comment again. I knew you guys had worked that spawn and summoned the boss and abandoned it. I know 24 hours later still noone wanted to kill a lone barracoon. For all I know he may still be out there.

    Still, the rest of the guys that backed you up don't do champs and won't be doing them so their voices will still be supporting the change fully.

    Do the new Bosses spawn outside of the taming event? If so, do they have specific spawn locations?

    I have heard that they do. Tela has been really good about deploying new content so all can engage it in various aspects. Although I think the exact locations are left to us to find and disclose/conceal.
