Friday has graced us with it's presence once more, and thus, it's time to talk about something new!
Today, I'd like to poll the Wizard population about a specific location - Briskbreeze. Have you completed Briskbreeze Tower? If you have, what is your favorite thing about it? If not, what would influence you to go back and complete it?
Have a happy Friday, and a phenomenal weekend!

Sometimes, we may not feel it is within the spirit and vision of the spiral to add or change something.

Chances are I have read your threads and would like to hear more!

I've done it a few times. It's kind of a right of passage at level 50 but doesn't drop anything special so it's just usually once per wiz for the badge. I'd do it again for drops, or as part of another quest (for the Professor or to unlock a world or a spell or something)
The cheat bosses are fun. Having so many mob floors feels like a bit of a time waste but they are easy at least.
I have been in briskbreeze tower when it was first released, mainly for the powerful ring. Now that there are other rings easily available from both regular npc vendors and the bazaar, the only possible think I could think of for people to want to go in would be the badge. That's also why I would want to go in now. But once I get the badge, I have it and never go in again. Something that would want me to go back in would be better drop rewards. Drop rewards being maybe cool looking equipment, more powerful equipment, or maybe something completely new.
I did complete the tower with my first wizard. I don't know if I have ever come back to it though, even with my other wizards. It is not an instance that is very memorable for me, honestly.
For the most part, I really don't like the long dungeons with cheating bosses.
So I have to say, I did not have a "favorite part" to this tower. I would actually prefer it if all dungeons could be completed in a shorter time span. Keep it short, and I would be more likely to come back.
I have, and I think my favorite part of it was how it was the tower that basically just introduced us all to the whole cheating boss mechanics as well. Now that being said though, however, I know that I and allot of other people as well would just love to see the continuation of the whole Briskbreeze/Gauntlet of Woe storyline that you made back then, if you can even do so that is to say of course, so there's that at least.
I'm not really a fan of dungeons like that, but I'm also not strongly against them. The only strong opinion I have about briskbreeze at all is that the cliffhanger at the end needs to be resolved. Use as many, or as few dungeons as you want, but please finish the story.
The ability to get a rare in game item that increases an important characteristic when worn. At the time the dungeon was released, the Briskbreeze ring was important if we wanted to increase damage. It was a superior choice to the Gurtok ring at lvl 50 for my PvP game.
In order for me to return, there would need to be a direct benefit of a superior piece of gear at my level or other item to enhance my gaming experience.
Half of my wizards have completed it and the other half just avoided it, perhaps what would make us return to it would be explaining the story that was happening there just left off with it saying we would be headed towards Krokotopia? i believe.. but still nothing has happened since then? In Other Words.. What Happens Next?!?
I did it on my first wizard, maybe on my second too. So no point in doing it on others after that. There's really no reward worth the trouble. It's a deadend story with no real rewards worth repeating it. The story needs a reason to go on and complete it. As it stands there's really no point in it.
I have 7 wizards that have completed it - the tower was fun and challenging. At one time, we use to farm it for drops - something that the level requirements don't need anymore because of pack gear or crowns gear.
I completed it on my first wizard because I didn't know it was optional. I waited weeks for a "team" to complete it with after failed attempts. Between sitting and waiting there and then Marleybone Tower to get into Celestia I held up a month of game time waiting...
Would never take it again on any of my future wizards and was glad the Warehouse was removed from required to get into Celestia on my next wizard.
Accept for saying you completed it, I am unaware of any valuable drops it offers.
