Tiur, the Gnosis
May Promotion

We're going to delay release by a day or so. I've been doing some data analysis and I think May is a good month to try to mix things up!

Feel free to drop thoughts on the forum thread this news makes. We're considering bringing some old things back!


PS Next month, by pattern, is chests. But there were thoughts we bring back crowbars and crates?

PPS. This was last minute. Normally this is all done well before now, but hey, let's be daring.

Penned by my hand on Kinsday, the 15th of Lanosian, in the year 487 MA.

    Crowbars + crates for relic pieces to flood the market.

    Actually, I was considering crates and crowbars for half the month. Most requests seem to be relic oriented.

    After that, maybe Arti-Cart and direct Salvage?

    Everyone's stuck at home, so why not hit the trifecta or promotions? Except that then no one will care about June. Hm!

    Look at HELP ANTIQUATED ARTIFACTS in game and behold the random abilities they give people who want to spend 200-300 credits per salvage/level.

    Nice! Looking forward to seeing what I can spend some money on haha
  • CallidoraCallidora Member Posts: 10 ✭✭
    Please let me spend my money on crowbars so that I can open up the twenty imported crates which have been sitting in my inventory for years.

    I still loved the diminishing discount. Best promo ever. Or let me directly buy globes of elemental energy.

    I would enjoy having arti carts, and it seems that direct salvage parts from them carts is in demand.
  • RhyotRhyot BloodlochMember Posts: 622 ✭✭✭✭
    The only downside to direct salvage purchases is that once everyone who wants salvage has their maxed out items... Salvages become useless and it's just another lame promo that provides no income for IRE.

  • DrystinDrystin Member Posts: 147 ✭✭✭
    As someone relatively still new compared to the rest of you old bastards, it gets rrrrreaaally old not having any access to the antiquated stuff when so many of you have maxed out pieces.

     Take my money. 
  • DemarcusDemarcus Black Flagon InnMember Posts: 551 ✭✭✭✭
    I apparently need some learning, could someone kindly indicate what makes these antiquated things so great? I don't use a mount, so I have no frame of reference for the riding crop. The goggles seem kinda cool, but nothing game changing. The gauntlet would be alright if ylemmed it up, like the 40% damage increase to eld. 

    Literally the only one that seems truly awesome is the ring-of-you-must-have-friends. I have no friends so it would be expensive but functionally useless bling.

    That being said, this has generated more suspense than my COVID test last week. I might have to buy something for the entertainment of not knowing!

    Also, I like chests.

    I don't want to live in a world where several dozen people can rezz each other three times at a lesser focus. Instantly. With no corpse.

    While the effects of other salvage artifacts are strong, the ring really is gamebreaking in a group PvP world where targeting the target callers is considered a cornerstone. Not to mention, there's zero real counterplay to the ring itself. Skills that exist to eat the corpse like Rot, Damnation, etc. do nothing because it offers a bodiless rezz at no risk to the ring user. Hell, the Ring user doesn't even have to be in the room.

    I've watched Benedicto come back within ten seconds of having his body destroyed and resume target calling. Yes, I know Mazzion and Meltas do it too. I also don't approve of it on our side either. It's a fundamentally imbalanced artifact. I get that it needs to retain its value as a salvage item, but a bodiless rezz is value on its own even if it had a better cooldown associated with it. The closest thing we have that does what the salvage ring does was an auction-only resurrection ring that would rezz someone without a corpse -- ONCE PER HOWLING. That's how powerful that effect is, but now we've given it to multiple people in fights, that can be cast multiple times.

    Why is it usable in combat? Or under the influence of the ylem aura? Seems kinda strong.
  • XavinXavin Member Posts: 1,581 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Does anyone else remember when an antiquated artifact was introduced that allowed an outlier to generate an insane amount of gold and as a result gold generation was nerfed across the board, as well as the things being bought with that gold, rather than just nerfing the antiquated artifact?
