    So, for those unaware, The Shrieker is a new plot enemy that was put into the game. It’s like VVulf in which you can fight It once you get the town event to do so, as well as its a champion difficulty. And if you don’t do it, you’ll get a message that it stole 8 of your trinkets! The game offers you a chance to get those trinkets back of course but that’s not why I’m talking about this.

    The reason is that it happened while I was on week 23, which is about 20 weeks before you can get VVulf! The fact is, I had no one, no lvl 5-6’s to fight this. Hell, I JUST got my equipment to be upgraded to lvl 3! And my guild is still lvl 2! I thought the devs/ Redhook would’ve learned by now thanks to making VVulf, that people don’t just power lvl people and get to lvl 5 upgrades in buildings so quickly. I mean, that’s why they changed VVulf in the first place. I’m sorry if I’m sounding pissed off cause that’s exactly what I am! I lost VERY RARE TRINKETS that I fucking strived to get, and that were also amazing!

    To end this, I’m requesting Redhook/ Devs to change the Shrieker so it can’t begin to spawn until a certain week. That’s all, thank you for reading.

    I put off the Shrieker for several weeks. Maybe even 10, I don’t know. This was after I sent 4 level 5’s in there without any clue what I was up against, and got them all killed.
    I don’t remember seeing anything about losing 8 trinkets until all that time had passed, and by then I had a bevy of level 6s who went in and trounced the Shrieker in 3 turns. I not only got my 8 trinkets back, but I seem to have gotten the ones dropped by the first squad as well. At least, some of them.

    So this is nothing like Vvulf. It’s annyoing and must be dealt with but there is 0 need to do it right away.

    I just looked it up. I was “offered” the Shrieker in week 25. I took the offer and killed 4 heroes.

    Then in week 35, 10 weeks later, I was offered the quest again. I don’t recall that exactly but the log says it. I do know that the quest was available after I failed it, and remained so. I could have done it any of the 10 weeks.

    Then in week 37, 2 weeks later and 12 after it was first offered, the Shrieker stole 8 trinkets. That week, I went in and took it down.

    Nothing needs to be done right away, but it’s still a problem that should be fixed. Sooner rather than later. HMV, when you said it’s nothing like VVulf, I’m guessing you didn’t see what I put when I said it was like VVulf. I gave specific points, comparing them to what was similar.

    I looked more into the boss and I love it a lot, I just wished it happened when I was able to fight it, and not when I hadn’t even fought a lvl 3 boss yet. That deters players a lot, and should be close to a top priority to change it so it’s like VVulf in the time requirements to get to fight it.
