Brawler's Guild .... already old news?

A week or so after Brawler's guild was out, I dropped a boatload of cash on a ticket and got in. It was exciting for a while, until I hit a wall so I stopped.

After collecting a bunch of fancy gear I found myself with some free time.. "I'll head back to Brawler's Guild!" Low and behold - the place was empty as could be. No lines, no nothing.

Is this the experience others are having? Does anybody do or care about Brawler's Guild anymore? Why or why not?

I did it on my DK. Got bored with it after 2 or 3 levels.

Before I get told the fights are more fun/interesting further in...I don't care. I don't feel like going through something I find boring in order to get to something fun, when I can go to something else I find fun right now.

I'm not saying it's a bad addition to the game. It's just not for me. If you enjoy it, awesome.

I don't think it is old new, I still go in at least once a fortnight to watch a couple of fights and also continue my progress and try to down Millie Watt (1st. npc in rank 5).

I see prices have dropped for those tickets though and no one talking about it in trade chat.

A better topdown view of it would be nice too.

I think the tickets have been selling on my server's BMAH for literally the 10 gold above starting price that is required for them to sell.

Dead as dead gets.

I regret buying my pass, it is way to boring and pointless.

I enjoy it, spent some time in their last week with my friends watching people die to the 1-1 Croc. We had our fights and watched each other win/fail.

10-20 person Que whenever I go in. Im on Laughing Skull (so w/e battlegroup that is.)

Most people hit a wall around Rank 7/8 where their gear simply isn't good enough to kill something and they stop. Coincidentally, I found out that halfway through Rank 7 was where I stopped enjoying it and only occasionally go back to attempt a Rank 8 boss, kill myself immediately because it's always stupid RNG Manastorm, and leave.

With no shiny at the end of the tunnel, it's bound to die eventually.

She's really not hard as long as you jump in the lightning as she is about to finish casting the Discombobulator.


When on the raid training dummy I am able to burst to high 60's with no potions/flasks or food buffs but inside fighting Millie Watt I am hitting the enrage timer.

I would do it more if you could go back and do other fights just for fun. Being stuck at Battletron because of gear isn't a good time.

Am I right in seeing there are only two item rewards (one being a companion) and a title for the entire thing? That'd explain why it's dwindled down so fast.

I'm glad I didn't waste tens of thousands of gold on the first few passes when it first came out, lol.

Had this feeling that its popularity was going to die awful fast.

Edit: The BG wasn't meant to be a loot bag. It was put in to test your individual skills.


Test your gear, you mean.

They should have normalized the stupid thing for i463 and made it Skill > All.
