    Excuse me, are we supposed to keep our inventory full of items because we cannot craft them?

    I had same surprise as other player here: put 4 maces into the workbench and ... nothing, just tier 0 and no possibility to revert

    So, 4 wolf slayer items in the crafting bench shield = deleted items? Is that what happens? Or was it just the tier number in the corner that dissappeared?

    What are the stats?

    3 Tier 1 item + 1 tier 0 item = 0 tier item. What i really want to know is will 4 new tier 0 item post 185 = 1 tier 1 item ?

    If not, i am gonna melt all the FM uniqs

    What was the item and what were the final crafted stats?

    The reason I asked is because I put 3 tier I level 50 wolf slayer absorbers and 1 tier 0 level 53 wolf slayer absorber, all with block rates bonuses in the 30% or 40% range. on the bench, but didn't hit the craft button. The stat range for the craft showed block rate bonuses in the 50s and 60s as well as being tier 0 and level 53.

    The following rant is not directed at Traki :)

    EDIT? <-- we can't even use acronyms? :) ok ... "what the heck"

    We need to successfully navigate Infernal difficulty in PW in order to craft Tier 2/3/4 event items? After BP/DSO increased the strength of the PW end-bosses in R185, I can barely beat Heredur and haven't come close to beating Grimmag on PAINFUL mode, let alone INFERNAL.

    Wait, I can buy the Draken Core for 5,000 draken ... which is 6 to 12 months of saving up draken from partially completed events for my weak toon. Just to finally be able to carry out that first event unique craft. Should I stop playing events so my storage doesn't fill up with crafting material? Um, but then I won't earn Draken to purchase a Draken Core to craft the event uniques. Catch 22?

    Oh, and it's probably just an unlucky streak, but it seems like the Moonsilver Mine silver essence drop rate has been nerfed: I've played the mine 8-10 times today and 4 of those have netted me a combined total of 300 silver essence more than I spent defending that female RA (I use 400 silver every time ... yeah, I'm not efficient, but I blame some of that on my low DPS) ... obvious solution, I just stop going for that particular reward chest and bypass that repeatable quest. (And, yes, I had farmed silver essence in daytime previously, but wasted 3,000 [plus ~200 in revival Andermant] or so trying to survive just one run on EXCRUTIATING difficulty. I finally got to Vargulf, only to, obviously, get my butt kicked in a few seconds.)

    So again I ask you, BP/DSO, are you intentionally creating disincentives for any but the most elite players or payers to play even the most basic of events?

    I'm really cursious as to your active user count trends; have we entered that Spiral of Death yet on Tegan?

    if you dont mind me splitting posts mods but just to make it more interesting, :) since others replied my thread

    4 tier 0 item crafted into 1 tier 1 item.

    NOT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - you get a EDIT Tier 0 item also

    So what is the point of tier system. How many ppl can do L2 or L3 to get tier item.

    I think it is time to melt all the FM uniq. The new TIER system is worst by far, amongst the updates recently !!!!!

    Also another update : Reward chest tooltip says giving tier item, but I got tier 0 item

    Open letter to CMs, Mods, Devs, etc.,

    So, a recurring MONTHLY event has new/different progress rewards...this concept falls fully into the realm of expectations.

    But, in regards to the uniques/crafting changes (assuming that there isn't a MAJOR bug at play here):

    1. Why was there no warning last month that the next release would be different?

    2. If there was no prior notification of changes, why not release a notification of the changes concurrent with the release of said changes?

    3. If it didn't seem as though a notification of the changes was necessary, why not release an explanation of how the new system works?

    No game can work well without rules/ either follow or break. Many of us are resilient enough to roll with the punches...if we know the punches are coming. But, why on earth would someone take a nearly universally loved/liked/praised event and alter it without owning up to those changes before, during, or following its release? Presently, we are left in a state of limbo---experimenting and passing along advice to one another through sheer trial and error with no official word as to worth of such actions. Effectively, we have been left to the wolves.

    Are you 100% sure about this?

    Yes, as you can see the lower screen shot taken from my stash, there is stash background behind the item panel.

    Just put the ingredients in the workbench and check the coming result, does it will become max stats..

    Okay, I see! Thanks! But I'm still 4 shields away from the tier 3 (max) shield.
  11. Hornzzz

    Hornzzz Forum Greenhorn

    I don't know if i understand you right. But let me give it a shot.

    So 4 New lvl 55 shields(We call it X) is equal to 1 new lvl 55 shield (We call it Y) but with better stats. Then 4 Y shields equals the Max Shield (We call it Z).

    So basically 4 multiply X = 1 Y and 4 Multiply Y = 1 Z. If this is right, then i have the following questions.

    If the above is correct, does the Shield Z have the same value as 4 X excruciating shield drops? the frak dow we keep track of which shield is X, Y or Z? what are the demarcations if any? Cos the going by stats is confusing since until Z they can be random...

    Once again, BP, the community is doing your work for you. Where can i apply to BP please? Email i can send my resume to? I always dreamed of getting paid for doing nothing.

    Look at the shield(s) when selecting the modes:
    It looks like it's the same shield on all modes.
    I believe that it's the same as before, i.e.: you drop a (old style) tier1 item on all difficulties just like before but without the tier indicator.
    I think that now, because of the new tier notation system based on difficulty levels like in PWs... on events it looks like it was screwed up since the unique items were already tiered and now you don't see the tier of the items.
    So... As I've presumed, you get only tier 1 items and you craft them as before, but now you can't see the tier of the result but only the min-max possible values of the result (just like before).
    I'm gonna try tomorrow to see if you can combine different tier (full moon) items, or if the workbench can tell their tier and won't let you craft them.;)
  13. Novadude

    Novadude Commander of the Forum

    My belief is that you can craft them and that the craft has higher min-max stats, like before. However, I can't test this until level 55 (unless I get 2 more absorbers on my mech or 4 more on my dk).
  14. gun

    Unfortunately Y stats can be low(as stated in event window). That's what happened to my Y.
    As for 4 x Y = Z (max stats), I can not confirm it. Since I craft 3 pcs old tier 2 + Y.
    But hopefully it's going to be max.. since the bottom note is "Use the work bench to craft a higher...". And the item with the max stats does not have that note anymore.

    You are right.. it is confusing..
    I wonder what would happen if put 3 X + Y in work bench...

    Main problem with this event is that players <lvl50 will get gems of qaizah if are in party with lvl50 player.I played with my friend and since he is just lvl46 he can use that gems. Now you can say its not such a big deal but for this event he get about 30 gems and it took 14 space in inventory.... so why? BP didnt get much money on selling inventory space?

    No. For last year or little more thay are building up grinding level needed to play this game. Most biggest lie is when thay say: "We increase drop rate" but that was in realise that announce tiers for items.... so increase drop rate a little but at the same time ask players to get 16 items to get one that is a goal? How is that increase?

    And if you ask if its intentionally answer is YES. Every bussines goal is money, and BP goal is to take a lot of many from players that will pay to be the bast on the server.

    So should the majority of level 50+ players be penalised and have to find more Gem refiners because a minority of level 50+ players want to take twinks along to avoid experience ?
    I think not :p
    If they get Gems of Qaizah and it takes up Inventory Space may force them to level up and stop twinking :-D
    Best think I think is they now can not use these Gems until they level :)

    From all the above that has been said, I would like to request an improvement on the rune drop. With so few entries on the bloodmoon it's very difficult to drop it.

    You know...[EDIT]

    My idea was that <lvl50 should get plain gem that thay can use.

    And if I play with my everyday, real life, friend I dont look if he is strong/good enough, right lvl or something else. Simply I play with them because we are friends. Second, if he does not get exp while he is in group with me it does not mean that he is the "twink". It simply mean that he is more than -+5lvl than me. And he play his game when Im not online, and he gets exp.

    [EDIT]The game is to play and enjoy.

    Rejoice my fellow Dracanians (or not), I was right. The workbench can tell the tier of the items and thus you can't craft the items unless they're the same tier:
    And it crafts them as before, this is a tier2 shield (see the possible min-max values before the craft):
    And this is the result compared with the max one from the event window:

    PS: It looks like the time of the Vargulf Round Shield is back.
