1. Has anyone gotten an Artifact drop while doing the Champ spawn? I killed thousands and got nothing, then went to kill tigers for pelts away from the Champ spawn area and got 1 to drop. Didn't know if that was just a thing to get you to explore the other areas or whatnot.
2. Necromancy spells not triggering Spell Plague. I tried on everything I could fight in the new lands, none of the Necromancy spells triggered Spell Plague here. In fact, the only thing that I could get to trigger a Spell Plague extra hit was a Colossus. I thought maybe it was a glitch, but went to kill a Gaman to test it out and everything worked fine. I might do more testing in other areas of the world and see what happens. I checked to see if there were any issues with Necromancy or Spell Plague, but didn't find much...although my search-fu is weak at times.
3. I got 2 black tigers for my tamer! I was excited. Not sure how tough they are on the pet-o-meter thing, but I was happy to get 1, much more so for 2! I did have to kill a metric crapload of regular tigers though. Still not seen a white tiger, but I did see a few white tiger armor pieces drop, so I assume they exist somewhere.
4. Just curious on what people's thoughts are on all the new stuff on their home shard. I like it on Catskills. Tiger armor looks neat and the turtle champ spawn didn't seem too difficult, and easy to get to so farming it could be a thing for a lot of guilds. New characters can check the area pretty easily and wait for the gold to drop and grab a few stacks
