So.. maelstrom?

hey i recently joined siptah and after 2.3 patch im a bit confused about the maelstrom… so i thought it was a hard/better rewarding way to farm essence, but now on official servers it is active for like 15 minutes every 2 hours or so… so whats the point anyway? when the boss “lloigor” spawns its already over and it vanishes, im currently farming essence from npc chests and i dont mind it, but i mean… is the maelstrom just useless for now? why would i bother going to? and the bosses :frowning: i wanted to kill the bosses/elder sieges or whatever they were called

I think the problem comes from the lack of accumulation time. Before you had 10 min notice, you could see there was a storm starting and had enough time to get there. Now, unless you happen to be there or follow the cycle, by the time you get there, it is over.

Yes, I’d like to know where to find them now too. Is it just luck after initiating a purge within the Maelstrom area of effect?

Yeah the new timers are strange. I think they need to be modified a bit to fully enjoy/benefit from the storm. I did 15 minutes accumulation so there is enough time to prepare to head on in. I also increased the duration to 30 minutes, every 90 minutes. Seems like a better balance to me.
