    That wouldn't shock me.
    Not really... if there is some sort of "weighted" crafting, it might be useful to get back one or all of your ingredients.

    Do you realize how pointless a crafting system that gives you everything back is?, let's say, I want a legendary 2H staff, with close to max values of my preference, so I put 4 extraordinary items and ~80 gold, so, in your universe, if I don't like the staff I click revert, get all of it back and try again, and again, and again, and again, until I get the stats I want and it would be practically for free, that's even worse than the totally free crafting system some people dream of.

    Haruki said on a Twitch stream reverting might be possible but of course you'll have to spend something, e.g., we might get back the 4 items we used, but not the gold/ander fee, this makes sense, because otherwise it would be pretty much pointless, prone to be abused, and utterly game breaking.

    A lot of people rant here, sometimes me included, about imbalance, yet some people ask for such a feature?, free crafting/endless tries for crafting 1 item for a one time fee? LOL, get your stuff together and think before typing for Agathon's sake.

    I couldn't agree more to this.
    Already now, most people I know use very few unique sets, mostly good legendaries. As for myself, my 3 main chars only use the Dragan set. Not even Dragonache makes any sense for me. Crafting 2.0 is ANYWAY likely to worsen this effect, as it will equip people with even better legendaries.
    Also, I have started collecting good extraordinary items with nice enchantments and values since I reached Level 50, shortly after R155, and I know many people did, which is why we are all waiting eagerly for crafting 2.0 (and always longing and looking for more inventory space...)
    If Crafting 2.0 will make it TOO easy to get the item of your dreams from those inputs, it will mean that a high percentage of players will more or less instantly have absolutely OP stats. As @EhtovK said, that would be game breaking.
    Therefore, the revert option is also what I am most "afraid of" in the new system. The ability to craft 4 (powerful) legendaries into an even more powerful legendary also sounds "dangerous".

    How much more broke can it get? PVP is so messed up and unrewarding, they might as well sell god mode and be done with it.

    Nowadays only those players can be OP, who have got 1 of better sets (PW sets i mean). So crafting 2.0 would be a good opportunity those players who couldn't get these sets yet.
    So what would be the point crafting 2.0? If you have 4 extraordinary bows with enchantments of increased weapon dmg and dmg is it sure you will get a leg bow with same enchantments? Or? That being that case - spending golds or other virtual currency for revert is totally ok. If not, i still think revert function is pointless.

    Now ... imagine if I get all resources back ... I can click all day/year long until I got what I want.

    Exactly my thoughts. I am quite skeptical about this "making a better item" thing. Sounds like game breaking to me.

    No, its not pointless , after all you won't have to farm 4 extraordinary items again.If it would give you your gold back then you would just need 4 extraordinary items and you could potentially keep re rolling the stats on the legendary for free which would break the entire crafting system and make it too OP.

    hi haruki

    after this r162 my q4 mage set is bugged ( belt + weapon).

    this set has the following bonuses :
    + 150 health bonus
    + 10% lightining resistance
    "Lightning strike" now deals additional 75% base damange as lightining damage in cross lines outgoing from the target point.

    this last bonus is bugged and it's the most usefull of all this basically actually q4 mage set it's useless at all....

    before this release 162 with 1 lightning strike with this set i deal with red essences on grimmag hard 75k ( first dmg of lightning strike) + 55k ( 75% dmg bonus set for 2/2 pieces from the target all correct)

    and now after r162 im dealing on same monster with same essences with same stats this dmg : 75k ( like always because its not influenced from bonus of 2/2) and 14k ( so basically 75% here its not 75% anymore but 10 or maybe 15% or maybe doesn't count red essnces).

    it's a real big problem.
    actually i'm spending 40% more time on bosses 40% more essence every boss and this it's not correct from you, just because it's your fault and i'm spending more essence ( REAL MONEY) for yours fault.
    i farmed tons of berarch for this set..i got it 1 months ago and used day after day and gone all ok and puff after this r162 is bugged..
    so please fix this bug in a acceptable time.
    thank you

    I don't know what your base damage is but i highly doubt that it is 75K ..
    Please note that the damage of the lightning cross is 75% of BASE DAMAGE and not the 75% of Lighting strike.

    What i think is happening is that previously somehow grimmag was hit by each of those 4 lines causing it to be hit for 14k*4=56k damage but now it was just hit by 1 line.Thats the only logical reason i could come up with.

    Could someone please verify whether is it possible to hit the same target by all the 4 lines or not?

    my base dmg with red ess on is 10.500 with x4 ( 300%) critical dmg at 70% critical hit rate.
    grimmag was just an example. i hit a lot less on every boss/player/mob

    and u can't hit with all 4 lines. and i can't too before this r162.

    nothing has changed.

    weapon has 50% more dmg on lightning on an enemy already electrified.

    i run more or less 50/60 boss fatal daily..i know my dmg on bosses and now something is changed.
    in patchnotes nothing speaks about q4 set so it's not a fix of anything...and if it's not a fix---> bug of q4 set.

    with second dmg of lightning i hit 3k ( no crit) and 14k( crit)

    3k no crit are u serious? with RED ESSENCE and with 10.3 base dmg.
    it's like don't count RED essences on.
  13. ekant1992

    Well nothing is wrong then, as i said the bonus of the items is 75% Base damage, as your base damage is 10.5k with reds this means

    75% of 10.5k= 7.8k damage from that cross lighting

    Now as all mobs of your level would have 50% resistance this means that the damage would be half of that i.e. 3.9k and when you crit it would be 4 times that that is 15.6k.

    So as you can see by maths, nothing is actually wrong.There are only 2 possible explanations

    1)Previously the mobs were hit by all 4 limbs of the cross.

    2)Previously it was taking 75% of damage of lightning strike which would be a bug and there was a blind fix in the new patch.

    Hello CM's,

    when we can expect the Dragan event ? I hope we don't have to wait till halloween :(
    I'm looking forward the next Release. I would like to suggest that it would be nice to have ability to "hide" the wings on characters, as
    I know there a lot of people who doesn't like them and thinks they do not fit in the game. Maybe it could only hide in the City areas....
    Keep up the good work!

    Hello, Haruki.

    Well, I have decided to cancel premium and will not purchase any andermant untill this pvp matchmaking bug is fixed. I am done farming, I have all the gear I need, and I have enough glyphs to upgrade everything of importance on my character. The only thing left to do now is pvp, which I can not take part in. So, bigpoint has just lost a pretty sizable amount of business by leaving me unsatisfied with this situation, because I am sure I would be spending plenty if I could pvp like everyone else can.

    I have recently through my investigations discovered something that may be of use to you in regards to who can fix this bug on the Dso team. During all of my sparring matches with support, I have only ever spoken with Alex and Chloe. A guild member who had this bug fixed for him by the Dso team provided me with more information as far as who helped him. Thalsadoom initially filled out a ticket explaining his issue, and Alex gave him the generic response that his name would be added to the list of affected accounts. He did not accept that there was "no fix", and proceeded to push support to get the Dso team to fix his account. He got nowhere, as I have gotten nowhere, that is untill he cancelled his premium, letting support know that he would not continue to pay for a game in which support will not help him. This got the ball rolling for him.

    He continued to speak with Alex, then Chloe. What is strange is the fact that his issue got sent "up the chain", where as mine never has. He was reffered to Stacey, and then to Chris. I have never spoken to these people, for some unknown reason. I guess my issues have never been a big enough problem to get escalated to the next level, in supports eyes. Chris is the person who confirmed this problem to have been fixed. I don't know who on the Dso team fixed it, but Chris did in fact confirm that his account had been fixed, and ever since his pvp matchmaking bug has ceased to exist.

    So, I have provided you with some breadcrumbs to follow here. I can't provide complete evidence, but this is a starting point for investigation, if you care to do so. Who did Chris send this problem to on the Dso team to take care of it? Whoever took care of it is your man with the plan, Stan.

    Just thought I would share an update with my search for justice! ;)

    Hi Haruki,

    Regarding crafting 2.0, can the outcome of the craft be targetted or is it random? For example, i want to craft a legendary belt with 4 lines of damage, so i should save all extraordinary belts with 3 lines of damage?
    Does the quality of the ingredient matter? It will make no difference if i use a belt with a total damage of 50 versus one with 90?
    I am assuming the same rules apply when crafting legendary items into even better legendary items....
    If i craft 4 legendary items into a stronger legendary item, will the outcome be stronger than what i can find as a random monster drop?
    You mentioned recipes and recipe books in your last twitch, feel free to give more information on that if you have it.

    Its not an urgent thing but it would be nice if you can change daily quests for something more attractive,worth to make it...especially for the 50lvl players...I think nobody is motivated to make it for 1 gold ,1 blue item,etc....
    Personally I would like to see there something like 50 golds,1000anders,1k red,pink ess,lucky box,etc...Ofc daily could be more harder and more interesting too,but like this how it is now its just exist for nothing.

    Dear CM's

    Some of the worst meme win the contest. I donno who pick the winners but he/she should seriously take a better look at the meme he/she picked for winner. I'am only happy for the MegaNuker he deserved the reward but others, not even close.

    The idea: Make a team for contests that can pick winners more fairly.
