  1. If you're serious about putting Trials only on temporary hold, outside of the main game -

    Do not introduce those Arcanes into Eidolons. Because that's when we will know, that the Trials will never return, and Arcane prices will plummet.

    Keep those on hold as well. Plat inflation & artificial scarcity is a good thing for you guys, to be brutally honest.

  2. Change of pacing that Convergence Orbs offer... That's why we still have them?

    Same can be said about why we need them to be gone, you know. They disrupt gameplay, forcing us to wait for enemy spawns before picking it up, having to go back just to pick it up... It doesn't help that the behaviour of these orb spawns - especially in the Plains - are erratic, slow, and generally bad. You've fixed the orb spawns happening beneath the ground for the most part, but take this for instance.

    You've just finished your last bounty mission, and now it's time to pack up and move out to another bounty. You've summoned your Archwing, and you're flying there. But wait, the Convergence Orb managed to spawn late, and now it's all the way back at the old bounty area. Do you bother to go back, and then fly to the objective location - which will seem like you're not really helping the team, not to mention you'll likely waste half the time on the Orb anyway - or do you ignore it, and just forfeit the extra focus gains?

    Focus Orbs offer very little in the grand scale of things, but in mission-to-mission basis, they come across as this thing you really should pick up for some tangible bonuses down the road. Picking them up is such a pain, but you're obligated to do so because the base focus gains with just Lenses (even Eidolon Lenses) - are just awful.

  3. I feel like all Opticor needed was the 2x Explosion AoE. Revert it back to how it was at U21, problem solved.

    Reduction of charge rate does not help Opticor's identity. In fact, now without the explosion, it's more like the Ferrox.. in which you trade out faster charge rate for more base damage. With lower crits.

    DE, you don't have to find other ways to buff the Opticor. You've already found the one that works, and that people like.


    Edit: Player _Silas tells me that the Opticor now does way less damage, and no visible stat changes (aside from intended fire rate). Well, this is disappointing... At this point, I've given up Opticor. I'll stick to more reliable Ferrox that hasn't been touched in a while.

  4. Just now, PoisonHD said:


    What are you talking about ._. With it's innate punch through, crit buff, and splash range it is amazing.

    They just *undid* the 2x AoE change. Just tested it. Splash range you speak of, doesn't really do much now.


    As in.... now Opticor just doesn't seem worth it. Ergo, back to Ferrox. Stronger Crit beats mediocre Splash Range it has now - considering the charge rate, too.

  5. Hoping Riven Dispositions'll be up on that site, too, but I guess that's somewhat unlikely, huh.

    Regardless, just showing us 5 levels of different strength for such an RNG-reliant system as Rivens... sure feels insufficient.

    And, as some suggested, it wouldn't be too difficult to ask the dataminers to only release the content that's already in-game. Post-Umbra, I guess, but asking can't hurt.

  6. Alertium does not need to be on Sorties! It's... Alertium. Do not kill our Alertium :scared:.

    Forma also does not need to be in Sorties. We can get them easily enough, all you're doing by adding forma is diluting the pool.

    Decreasing the drop rate for 2k Endo isn't entirely a wrong move, but some will still end up getting it every single day of the week and get frustrated.

    It's unlikely, but it's not impossible. Instead, I think removing 2k endo from reward pool entirely is the best - or, increasing the amount from 2k/4k, to 4k/6k.

    Boosters are okay, but there are some with no need for it (i.e. Prime Access purchasers). Resource Boosters are always great, though (especially with Kuva around).

    All in all, veterans are gonna get grumpy over series of Nitain > Affinity Booster > 4k Endo > Nitain > Forma > Exilus Adapter Blueprint > Forma.
