We have come to rely on unofficial sources (Taringa and Wiki, mostly) for information on new and/or upcoming monsters. I am not sure why SP cannot provide this information reliably to the players, but it is frustrating. To give 2 examples:
- Over the weekend, there was no official information about Babari's skill-set and stats. Taringa changed several times, while Wiki had the wrong trait and did not show the G4 skills. I wanted to find out at what level Babari gets the trait disable skill and there was no official information about it, although the dungeon was already live.
- Currently, there is no official information on Storm Beard, although the event is already live. If I want to take an informed decision whether to invest in this event or not, I have to read on Taringa, which is not reliable.
The lack of information is pervasive. We don't notice it because we have these unofficial sources, but as soon as they are down or not updated we realize that we are kept in the dark. Is this done on purpose, or is it a need that is being ignored due to other priorities?
Would it be so difficult to publish the stats and the skills of the monsters in advance, like it was done for Necromancer, for example?
