Shards of Fear (AKA ROF Pre-Launch: Fear Shard Collection)

Shards reward is in, seems u need max ally which is 20 shards and reward is choice of clicky to shards landing (2 hour recast) or 1 of 3 augs, 40ac 220hp / mana, different heroics. Dunno if we get a clicky to shards in preorder or not but shouldn't matter really, just gate to lobby or GGH anchor and use portal to shards landing.

There is a 4 Spell DMG aug in the set that is quite nice. Would like for it to be more, but it is an upgrade over 1 of the UF augs with 4 SD on them.

Clicky seems useful but pales in comparison to the Augs.

Preorder of RoF gets you the Harbinger Staff which has a Shards Landing port as the effect.

DO we know where in CoB yet ?

Prolly on the opposite side of the zone, that'd be typical :)

What's up with the augs being Req. 98? Anyone get a reason as to why a prequest rewards isn't usable open receiving?

Because it's not really a prequest--it's a "launch event" that's sticking around. There are 95-100 shards you can get in RoF zones. So there are multiple avenues for these items.

In a separate issue to the above quote:
The clicky reward is worthless, imo. I'm not sure why it's a choice since the GH has a port to shard's. Worse, as mentioned above, the pre-order has a CoB clicky so that's 2 ways in.

Ah ok, works for me. Probably won't take long for most to get 98 anyway.

CUT and PASTE of my comments on this from Alla's

Ok lets be clear, I havent done the prequest so wasnt expecting to get anythng when it went live.

But honestly for those that did what on earth were the devs thinking when they decided on the item requirements.

PRE Quest so your target player for the quest is max level 95 and the reward is lev 98 requred !! So you've done the prequest but dont actually
get to use the item ?classic.

People have mentioned before why bother with the lower level shards but now with a 98 required it does really seem even more crazy to me.

And then to pile on the insanity they're leaving the Pre quest active to become a Post quest.......... great i say, i get to have the nice aug anyway,
but really? hardly 'fair' i think.

So why not remove the requirement on the item if you did the quest before release thus are prequest flagged ( and really lets be honest the AUG
isnt a gamebreaker even if you were to have done the prequest at a really low level, the low level games had big boosts before ie defiant gear so 1 cool aug
isnt going to ruin it, and if you want to leave the quest in place for those of us that didnt bother, make the item have the higher 98 or even 100 required level and I'd be happy to get it then.

I also think the ring should be a longer cast time with half the cooldown time but maybe thats just me, not that many people would see the ring as a good option anyway given
the cheepness of gate pots.

Citraka 95 / KittyBeta 100 Beastlord naturally :) /endquote

It's not a "Pre-Quest." It's a "launch event." Piestro even posted about it:
