  • Re: Tethers and Conversion

    You can't both argue lore and then try to dismiss it when it is brought up or clarified.

    Severn's gift of training does not mean that the class itself is as infused in shadow as characters (and players apparently) believe. Was there some intended bleedover for some time? Yes. Should anyone be shocked that the God of Artifice might lie to his own people to prop up this sense of being really *special* pets, in lieu of the history of the Ankyreans? The most prized and trusted rellyw? No.

    As stated, Wayfarer is not native to Sapience and is offered training. The true Wayfarers do not move between cities, they are off protecting borders and hunting in Albedos, which is Hard Mode compared to what Sapience deals with. Willfully ignoring the clarity offered on this point does not serve any purpose.

    Monk's one tie to Spirit is through Kaido, which is primarily the manipulation of that amount of essence inside of you rather than a link or draw from the larger element. Every mortal, even Undead, still have a bit of Spirit in them. It gets dominated by Shadow with their state, but it holds out.

    Shapeshifting is a non-genetic mutation rooted in an ancient ritual. Someone being able to drop the training bears no relevance to the conversation, regarding lore or without.

    I am sorry you see the well documented refund rate as punitive, but those are the breaks. I am sorry you do not find our explanations satisfying (though I will say that that is reciprocated, the arguments themselves and the attitude in which they are conveyed. This is becoming a reoccurring situation where tone clouds meaning to everyone's discredit.).

    The tethers are in place for several reasons: both the mechanical balancing, as well as the lore. A Templar channeling the gifts of the Spirit plane makes little sense assisting Shadow as a Spirean citizen, just as a Sciomancer has little place warping the balance of the elements in Duiran or Enorian. There is a hard polarity with these two elements (which are physical things, not just propaganda for politics), which group some training in ways that are incompatable with others. It is easy to come up with personal narratives as to why you might toe the line, but the elements are not so forgiving once you try to immerse them within each other.

    We used to be able to do RANKINGS (name) to see where that person was in rankings without having to get the number off their honors. Can we have RANKINGS EXPERIENCE (name) do such? The other rankings as well, would be handy.
    You can already do this: RANKINGS ARBRE

  • Re: The Good, the Bad, the Ugly: Promotions

    So I know the direct credit worth turn-in isn't the primary motivation of giftbags for most people (nor should it be) but I do feel like I should point out the credit worth you got in return from those bags, because I think this is a factor that often gets overlooked.

    First lot of bags came from a 200cr purchase, so 8 bags total. If we were running our normal bonus credit sale, you'd get an extra 30% credits on that purchase, so an extra 60cr.

    These are the items you got in that lot of bags that can be traded in for credits or iron coins.

    Tokens: 3x 5cr Crucible: 1x 5cr Pages: 3x 3cr Style: 3x 5cr Consumables: 3x 3cr Chalice: 1x 20cr Customizations: 5x 6ic

    Total bonus credit outcome from trading all those items in:
    73 credits
    30 iron coins
    34,852 gold

    So you can see this is a bit more than the 60cr bonus you'd get in a regular sale. Also worth noting that those 30 iron coins is enough to buy yourself a cryptic chest, potentially increasing your credits even further.



    The second lot of bags came from a 300cr purchase, so 12 bags total. With a 30% bonus credit sale, this purchase would usually get you an extra 90cr.

    Vox: 3x 3cr Consumables: 1x 3cr Style: 1x 5cr Chalice: 2x 20cr Minipet: 1x 5cr Crucible: 3x 5cr Rebirth quartz: 1x 5cr Mount: 1x 50cr Page: 3x 3cr Iron Coins: 30 Customization: 6x 6ic

    Total bonus credit outcome from trading all those items in:
    136 credits
    66 iron coins (turn into 2x cryptic chests potentially!)
    74,031 gold

    So again, in terms of pure credit trade-in, still did alright yourself. You did note in your post that you cannot trade in your mount whistle, but as far as I can tell this definitely works. Are you using the correct command? PROMO TRADEIN <item> should work on all those items I listed apart from chalice and customization certificates, which you use the artifact tradein command for.


    Anyway, to reiterate, direct trade-in values should not be the primary motivator for buying a giftbag, and obviously our giftbags just aren't hitting that mainstream appeal we want from them. My primary intent here is to point out that as far as credit worth goes, that turned out pretty well for you.
