Reader Johnny said he played this game back in 2007: "Behind me we can see the endgame, the Baium Raid Boss. Baium resides on the 13th floor of a the Tower of Insolence, a massive, non-instanced hunting ground with 13 fully accessible and monster-packed floors. The weapon I am holding is a Flaming Dragon Skull, an A-grade blunt weapon."

So... your Hunter was shooting blanks? Poor fellow. They make a pill for that: pipeweed in an easy-to-swallow gel tablet. He'll soon be the life of the party once more!
"I had an interesting thing happen the other day," reader Chad writes in. "My party was running a quest that took place in an underwater environment. As you enter the quest, a magic bubble of oxygen is cast around you. Well, as we finished the quest and recalled back to the city of Stormreach, I found that I was still in the bubble and the whole city was now an underwater environment. My character was still moving slowly as if underwater and had small bubbles slowly rising up from him. Realizing this was a bug I may never see again, I climbed to the highest place I could and jumped off to capture these shots of my Artificer sinking down to the sunken lost city of Stormreach."
Admittedly, reader Joe has a pretty cool one to share. "Halloween mask + heavy-duty armor and weaponry + the carnage after a control point battle = the perfect screenshot to look like a total bad-ass," he said. I concur. Joe, you are awarded this week's bad-ass golden star sticker. It comes with a lifetime supply of awe and admiration from your peers.
If she could somehow slay the nine-foot Gorgon that snuck up behind her while she was admiring the graphical fidelity, that is...
