Recently on the forums, a topic was posted by a user including various bits of feedback.
When talking about the new world boss, Dreadtooth (who I will probably be stalking for a while after getting HK due to the fact that he apparently has several codexes attached to him based off his form), this was mentioned:
I have no definitive feedback, information, or strategies on Dreadtooth. All I can really say is that he drops the Dread Guard’s Corrupted Mask which is Adaptive Armor in nature and is initially given with no stats and a buff which has no tooltip (probably a bug). There is speculation that the mask itself may house a special ability or trigger for other areas. The description reads, “This ancient mask is the most striking component of the ceremonial armor worn by the Dread Guard. The helm’s frightful, etched visage is designed to strike fear into the hearts of enemies.” Here’s a picture.
This could possibly be what the real “Don’t worry about it” could be referencing due to this not being out until the next patch. Also, considering it comes out the same time as NM EC which is supposed to have the rest of the Dread Guard gear, it is fairly interesting.
I’d just like to say this is not definite–there is a chance this could just be a neat item (like Karagga’s own bell hat). But there’s nothing wrong with speculating, right?
For now, I’m more curious about how Dreadtooth will be anyway. I’m hoping he won’t be another boss like Nightmare Pilgrim (though, his forms (Corrupted, Frenzied, and Nightmarish on top of his normal self) make me think of Tatooine’s own world boss being infected during the World Event) and be more like Primeval Destroyer and Gargath, although, I’d expect him to be harder than those… Still, a group of 24 just all charging at a boss can be a bit more fun than very strict mechanic ones (as much as I do like mechanics and puzzles, I like to play with my friends and I hate feeling restricted by how much I can do so).
And in the meantime, I should probably work on getting more companion gifts to prepare for HK:
Likes: Trophy, Military Gear, Technology
He does have a companion story so I want him maxed ASAP.
Edit: Mask tested and nothing 🙁 There’s always the chance it could be an all 16 thing…but bleh T~T THE SEARCH CONTINUES.
