Yes, it should be there. 0.7.16 only introduced one new quest.

Been grinding for a Hunter's Sword, tho seems the stats should be better considering how difficult to get one.

Only 2 Demonic Arulirs, so that 1/1000 opportunity chance is extremely limited..and the Gornauds are stretched thin, so not many chances there either. And both--esp the Demonic Arulirs--are about the hardest monsters to kill in the game--at least ones that come back.

Shouldn't a Hunter's Sword at least have some Crit capability--and among the best Crits considering it's a so-hard-2-get Extraordinary item?

The 10% chance of Berserker's Rage is fun, but not exactly helpful, on balance.
And the 1~3 AP boost is only after a kill, so no good unless fighting multiple monsters--and even then, only helpful IF you get the max 3 AP, right? -and that's assuming your Attack Cost is 3.

Be nice to get one, but hard to imagine it's worth using, unless there's a very high Damage Modifier??

What am I missing?

The low drop chance extraordinary and legendary items were created mostly as collectors items. Some of them are good, some are mediocre, and some are just crap. The GoW can't be used for anything. The only ones I ground for were the RoL and the WoB (which I got very quickly). The others I have were pure luck (including RoLS!)

Thanks for your reply--that does help to understand the rationale.
Yeah, I stumbled on a few during the normal course of play--not appreciating their rarity!

Btw, I can better understand a gem, say, not having any practical use (it's shiny, see?) but seems non-decorative weapons (such as a Hunter's Sword) could be jacked a bit..unless the Demonic Arulirs only used them for non-vorpal bunny-hunting ;)

Finally got a Hunter's Sword shortly after last post! Was about to give up and head towards where the new content (Sullengard, etc) was supposed to be, then bam..it dropped. Poor Demonic Arulir..heard him (it?) cough..and curse the blade with his dying, demonic-foul breath :(

Won't use it (except for puppy-slaying), but nice to add to the collection.
