Why can't i have a veiled and a unveiled riven on a single weapon?

Recommended Posts

It’s probably because of the code that prevents more then one Riven from being equipped on a build. Looks like it doesn’t distinguish between Veiled and Unveiled Rivens. 

Most weapons will perform perfectly fine without Rivens anyways. Just un-equip your Unveiled one temporarily and then swap it back on afterwards if you really want to use your favorite weapons for the Riven challenge.

no, in the particular case that compelled me to make this post i really need the riven. I want to do a melee riven and the only really good weapon i have for that is my plague kripath. And it would suck to do that without my +cc for slide attacks +attack speed -infested dmg. Also this is more a question about the game design of this particular element.

You don't have to complete a melee riven challenge using a melee weapon. For slide kills for example, you can just shoot a gun while sliding, even if the challenge was on your melee weapon.

Why? Is your build really that reliant on your riven?

We are not allowed to stick two rivens on any weapons. A veiled riven is still a riven.

keep up a 3x combo active for 30s with a active pet

attack speed helps a lot with that

Take the worst weapon you have, stick a combo counter mod, lots of attack speed and slam countless times the same enemy with the weapon without actually killing it. I did all those rivens with just 1 or 2 enemies haha

Why not? DE could just make up some lore reason ('equipping two rivens makes you weapons explode') to justify it. 

  • I see no good reason for this to change.

If you want to be extra weak, take an Extinguished Dragon Key (1/4 normal damage).

Just chuck any melee onto a frame that can tank/go invis and wail on Lech Kril during his invuln phase.

That would save you like maximum of 5 seconds lmao. You'd save more time by switching melee weapons to something with more frequent attacks, like Ninkondis, which gives multiple strikes per melee attack lmao.

Equip venka/venka prime and go do a low level infested survival.  Put on body count and one of the other ones.  They'll run right to you and let you build your combo.  Bring Ash with the combo augment for overkill.  It's a really easy challenge and Im kinda wondering if it was a riven brag topic like the other poster suspects.

So instead of figuring out how to complete your challenge and in a larger extend trying to understand how the game works, you come in a forum to complain about how the system works.

Cute ☺️

If your plague kripath can only kill with a riven then your build is complete trash.
