Increased costs for converting crafting materials and crafting High-End items:

  • 10 Standard (Green) materials instead of 5 to craft 1 Specialized (Blue) material

  • 15 Specialized (Blue) materials instead of 5 to craft 1 High-End (Gold) material

  • 10 High-End (Gold) materials instead of 8 to craft 1 lvl 31 High-End (Gold) item

  • Changed deconstruction yield of Standard (Green) and High-End (Gold) items:

  • Deconstructing a Standard (Green) item yields 1 Standard material instead of 2

  • Deconstructing a High-End (Gold) item yields 1 High-End material instead of 2

  • They didn't just increase the cost of crafting the best items, they're fucking all high-level crafting across the board, hard. As if you didn't already have to craft everything multiple times just to get something usable out of the RNG...

    Still considering how easy it is to get crafting materials I still stand by my statement. 2 more gold items to craft high end stuff is nothing. Blues and green's are cake.

    Elf, I know you probably have as much time in the game as I do. but these changes are NOT for the better.

    Its totaly shit what they are doing. This is what it's going to cost you to DE and craft now.

    10 GREEN = 1 BLUE - Vs the 5 it used to cost

    15 BLUE = 1 GOLD - 10 plus more vs the 5 it used to cost

    So the conversion is now this on what the total cost will be.

    150 GREEN = 1 GOLD

    No matter how you slice it, this is NOT for the betterment of the game.

    Eh, I can speak for myself when I say i'm tired of 'The Dog and Pony Show'? From what I have watched of these he talks about some fairly minor points of the game development that they are currently working on. As a non-backer and a guy that would just like to play the finished game a lot of this info is irrelevant. Basically, give me a shipping date, at this point that's all I care about.

    I am a backer, 60 dollars in. And I've been tired of the BS for the past two years. Like You All I want at this point is to see the fricking game released.

    Loved the game when it was originally released, but I've found it really difficult to get back into that old looking game. Pillars to me has been a much more fun game. Maybe, I'm just getting spoiled with the newer and better looking graphical games. Am I the only one who feels that way?

    Yes, thank you Blizzard, more set gear and uniques and not enough stash to store it all. This is the legacy of your game. Fill it up with all kinds of gear that you keep rendering useless with each season just so we can change our builds, re-roll gear endlessly and grind for more gear.

    I think you pretty much highlighted why it's a disappointment for a solo player. You're playing with a group. When you can't play consistently for hours each night, have to take random breaks for other things, etc., then playing with a dedicated group is pretty much impossible.

    Pub groups are very random. Took me well over an hour to finish one challenge mission the other night, because the group was terrible. Ended up disbanding and joining another group, then one guy drops and we have to wait for another one. Fun.


    I understand what you're saying. Again, friend me, we will run you guys though it's not a problem.

    No idea how you think this is a disappointment, been playing this game almost every night, Just made lv 50 in the DZ last night. and it's been a lot of fun. just got my New MP5 N Navy and its a beast.

    This is a free DLC addon btw, I have a bunch of friends I hang with every night and we do all of the dailies and everything on Challenge Mode. we blast through everything right now. so we are looking forward to this new gear and challenge mission.

    I will say that the DZ needs to be fixed. There are far to many high level players there griefing the lower players who are just trying to level and get better gear. They need ot instance the high end players so that everyone is playing with players at their same levels.

    And yes, looking for Division Tech is a freaking chore. This also needs to get fixed.

    If anyone wants to run with us, let me know im darkxxxx in Ubi.

    I know of at least one game-stopping bug. My wife found it while fighting the humongous spider right before you go into Underdark. As far as I know this has not yet been fixed.

    You fight the gigantic spider, then kill off the waves of little spiders. This happens three times, then the large spider is supposed to drop down for the final fight. It drops down, but then goes right back up, never to be seen again. Meanwhile, you're stuck in combat mode until you exit the game. You can re-fight this over and over, you can choose to reset as far back as the game allows, but it always ends the same way once you get this bug. The only option is to start a new game and hope it doesn't happen again.

    Arrgh, sucks. Hopefully some kind of community patch will come out that can fix it plus tweaks on difficulty or something. Who knows if that's even a possibility.

    I'm pretty certain this was fixed, we went though the game recently and had no issues with this.

    As long as you mean successor to Neverwinter Nights; Mask of the Betrayer. That one was truly awesome - the others? not so much.

    Wrong. Hordes of the Underdark was really good.

    Ill second this one, it was the best out of the entire game.

    Loved it!!

    What fact are you referring to....the toolset? They've indicated there would be one since early in the process. They only later indicated that it would initially be a tileset. The one they delivered was anemic. "Create your own epic adventure to share with your friends" - a quote still on their website....

    I respect what you've pointed out - I hear you, I get it! but...

    and from what I remember, a lot of people thought the NWN toolset was shit. There was always a lot of bitching and moaning in their forums, from what I remember.

    This quote cracks me up. The Aurora Toolset was far from shit, many people just didn't understand it or know how to use the tools to their full capability. I am very well versed with these tools, I created two very large modules, both Eye of the Beholder 1 and part 2. Spent countless hours creating new scripts, tiles sets and models. I have roughly over 2 years into making those mods.

    The toolset is the exact same toolset the Bioware devs used to make the game. So anyone complaining about the tools just didn't know what they were doing. And That's a fact!!

    Right...my bad. I should have said early-access/crowdfunded instead of kickstarter.

    Yea, we will never see that now. This game will be done in a year's time. Servers will be gone and so on.

    This game failed mainly in part because most everyone was hoping for a Neverwinter Nights successor. Well that never happened, this game was far from what Neverwinter was.

    Division is so 'meh'. The highly vaunted PvP system is utterly broken.

    Have you played The Division? How exactly is the pvp system broken? It's a risk vs reward system.

    Really digging The Division, especially playing some of the lower missions again on hard with a full team.

    Yea, some people are talking out of their asses. They haven't played but are making assumptions.

    Elf, have you been doing the daily missions? on the really hard level? So hard, you have to have pretty good gear to do those or good luck getting by them. I've completed 2 already to get the Dark Phoenix credits. Getting my first epic blueprint tonight to make the vector weapon.

    I look at popups and ads like someone who calls me at my house in the middle of the night trying to sell me solar panels. If I wanted your fucking solars panels I will call you. So I block their calls.

    But these jackasses think they have the right to intrude on our privacy and they try to force themselves into our daily lives. So, no I don't feel sorry for any of these asshats. I just don't answer my phone anymore. just like I use ad blockers to stop this bullshit.

    So many sales, yet I hardly ever see anyone in the DZ late at night.

    finally decided to push to lvl 30 last night, that's where everyone's hiding, my DZ is constantly full now.

    I have a feeling a lot of people were like: "i'm not even going to bother with PvP until I have max lvl gear"

    which is too bad, cause i stopped at 14, 19, and 24 and got great gear for that level, and had a blast in PvP. but they started being pretty empty recently, lvl 30 DZ is hopping tho.

    And that's just bad game design. If you can't PvP until max level without max gear you're doing it wrong - as a designer. It was why Blizzard's PvP always sucked. You have to provide a level playing field or it's a waste of time. That's why I'd only ever PvP in level FPS' like CS.

    Well you would be wrong dude. You can go to the DZ at any time, its all open. But most players are playing out the story and leveling to 30. its what Ive been doing . i'm not heading until later on. but that was my choice, and I believe that is what most others have been doing to.

    This game has been great, so don't knock it until you have put some time into it. Its been a really fun game.

    Am I the only one who tried the beta an was already sick of that gameplay from that alone? Aside from shooting there wasn't really much to do there...

    This is how you based your time in the beta and came to the conclusion the game is lame because they locked down the beta and only gave you a small taste of the real game.

    Now had you played the final release of the game and based your decision then you would have some validity to your comment. But seriously, I take this comment as, I ate the ice cream cone, but I didn't taste the ice cream. That about sums it us here for you.

    Seriously, I was amazed how much was held back from the beta in the original areas and how many missions popped up when you go back to the base and open up new areas for the med and tech centers. You guys really have no clue how much more content there is in this game but you all are basing your game play from a small beta that gave us literally nothing.

    I'm really enjoying it as well. However, at level 7, I'm still using the starter weapons (although modded). I can't seem to find anything that increases the DPS over them. I should probably head to the DZ, but dammit, I want to improve the base! I suppose I could .. *gasp* .. buy a weapon from the vendor instead of waiting until one drops.

    Now if I only had more time to play.

    don't sell your gear/weapons to vendors, recycle it and use the materials at the crafting station. You can convert green materials into blue etc.
    Found that out the hard way

    Thanks for the tip bro, I haven't gotten too far in so this will help. I did read that crafting weapons and mods were most of the time better than what you can buy.
