    Considering the amount of effort that players must put in for each higher tier, the "core" rewards need to be reworked to represent the effort players are putting forth. As such I suggest the following new reward table:

    Normal
    2​
    Painful
    3​
    Excruciating
    5​
    Fatal
    7​
    Infernal I
    10​
    Infernal II
    13​
    Infernal III
    16​

    Would also suggest core drops outside PW could also have a better drop rate. Have been fortunate this Dragan event to pick up a couple of improved items. The number of Draken cores required to move enchantments means I will be holding onto the items for quite some time before I will be able to transfer enchants and actually use the items. At least with cores dropped in PW I can work towards collecting required number. With Draken cores I am reliant on events?? Well at least I think I am?

    Right now there is really no big effort in killing inf3 bosses, but sure I'm always in for more loot. I also think the pw chests should drop pristine cores on lower levels too. This wouldn't really make a difference for us older players who have thousands and thousands of pristines collecting dust, but it would slightly benefit the newer players and make the game a bit less grindy for them.

    Not needed.
    They will probably ditch all cores anyway ... they will probably make one core for all items + Augment+Soul+Pristine cores.
    16 in infernal III ... you must be tripping.

    Come on, you are giving them too much credit

    They do not plan, they make ideas on the spot and then put them right away ingame

    What I have said is not based on rumors but it is based on those changes in R209 which were removed because they were not ready to be released on live servers.

    Yes i have seen those screenshot, it was a snide remark to BP

    But still the screenshot shows that elemental cores still exist plus two new types of cores

    I think your suggestion makes sense in general - like you know, you get better drops (materi, andermant, armor tiers, ...) on higher difficulties which is fine.

    However, in case that this will be implemented:

    ...getting cores will be probably easier, or at least less repetitive, as you will not need to farm only 2 bosses over and over in order to get idk, blaze cores. So increasing the drops significantly on infernal difficulties could lead to over the top boosting of the old players (or those who have some you know, good strong friends).

    But even without the core update in play that @trakilaki has mentioned, the values are maybe too high.
    You see, the thing is, just like you said, your proposition is supposed to match the effort with the rewards, but different players have to put different effort into the battle. So in fact you might end up with a system where very strong players would be getting tons of cores in inf3 killing the boss within 20 seconds or so. And weak players having a hard time killing painful bosses, struggling and dying repeatedly, would get so much less cores.

    There are people (and not just a few per server, that's the whole, so called, high-end) who can kill inf3 bosses under 5 seconds. They use red ess for that, true, but that requires so little of this that they can do it all the time.
    On the other hand, players that weak don't really need the cores...

    This will stay true however:
    And the update is to come... It was in TS and they confirmed it in the live stream. All the PW cores aside of the massive cores will be merged into one type.

    Only those in the new bag would stay ... those in the inventory would be probably converted into new ones.

    good them, more inventory space, if they plan to merge all elemental cores into one single core
