    nah, if you really want a positive reaction you blatantly overdo it, then change it after criticism. "yay, they listen to us! <3".

    otoh, players are whiners in general and whine about everything, blindly following all of it would leave the game a hot mess...

    that being said, let me whine about upgrade costs it's cheaper to buy a t1 piece than upgrading a dungeon drop... that makes 0 sense.

    All of the Crafting Rifts that drop Imperishable Motes have been changed to now drop the Imperishable Prismatic Mote.
    With the changes to the Imperishable Motes going Prismatic, the drop rate from Crafting Rifts has been reduced.
    Due to changes in the economy within Rift, the drop rates for the relic Imperishable crafting materials have been changed to drop less frequently than before.

    • Recipe for Phenomenal Bottles of Critical Strikes has been changed to only require 6 Sarleaf Extract
    • Rune Amender and Advanced Rune Amender recipes have had their costs slightly reduced. Mostly on the amount of stars required (both Capricious and Nightmare).
    • Pelagic Fragment and Sarleaf Fiberwood costs on Tormenting/Opaque Amenders have been reduced by 50%.

    All these upgrade paths etc are just poor gimmicks to help people part with their money yet again,remember the good old days you got a piece of armor or a weapon and only needed one item you could use your dkp on to turn them into relics?

    Yeah they were better times,getting a piece of gear and having to upgrade it a gazillion times at an extortionate rate or spend a ton on enchants/orbs/whatever adds nothing to the experience but frustration.

    Just another reason i could never ever take raiding seriously in this game ever again,it should be all about the experience of dropping bosses with your guild,not about the damm costs.

    Wait, did you just say that while quoting a post from Vladd that was made 8 hours after mine?

    You do know how time works, don't you? If not, I will confirm reading statements from the future actually IS hard.

    in rift vanilla doing HK, when you killed AKY a relic Voucher for a chest pc would drop (among other relic items) and all you needed to get the relic piece was to go to the vendor outside HK and turn in your old chest piece, and the voucer. BAM you now have a relic chest pc.

    ...and there was no upgrading the relic piece. You didnt have to further upgrade it because it was a reward for getting the damn boss down.

    I was going to mule a couple of tormenting textile amenders from shard to another, but decided to hold off before raiding over the weekend.
    While raiding, I picked up a chest that's worth upgrading and using in my tank set, and I'm just sitting here looking at it now, thinking... I have to make two more amenders for that crap too?

    Pretty sure I spend more time crafting upgrade materials than I do raiding, these days. It's ridiculous.

    I bought most of my armor pieces instead of taking drops for that reason.

    Sad that I will be 5/7 T3 armour this week with not a boss down in T3 to my name. And to be honest I couldn't give a rat's...

    Chronicles/IAs/NTEs/WFs/sparkles etc FTW! aka RIft raiding...

    One of those pieces was a "dungeon drop" from sparkles... I totally see what you mean. Upgrading that twice just to get it up to store grade ... simply ludicrous.

    It's equally sad that I'm 8/9 yet half my gear is from chronicles/IAs/NTEs etc and not from either marks or loot from raiding.

    I don't mind doing non-raiding activities, but getting much of my T3 armor from it is ridiculous.

    So I take it from the silence that all the spit-balling will amount to nothing. Oh wait, there was the slight increase of crift relic drops /woot. Getting the feeling Trion is simply pretending this tier didn't happen, or something. Look over there /point ... new shiny!

    They're just waiting until it dies down again so they can unveil their next new money making idea.
