    Default Please reduce cooldown or just remove temporal conquest cores all together.

    Seriously.. 12 days to open a box that 95% of the time holds some garbage blue item that vendors for a platinum? I'm so tired of getting these in conquest. I would rather get infinity stones or more conquest marks. The sheer thought anyone actually spends credits on those aligners is lunacy. It would take 3600 gems to unlock that chest on day one. That's about $25 US dollars to get a piece of garbage. It's not even worth it. Even IF you were to get the epic loot from a random expert dungeon boss, the loot isn't even worth the cooldown time. You might as well just run the dungeon for the item you want. It's a whole lot more lucrative. You'll gain more than just one item, you'll gain experience and planar attunement xp etc etc.

    It's not often you actually win conquest. I find I will get maybe 2 wins a week on average. It would be nice when you DO win that you actually get something of worth from the conquest chest. It's almost a slap in the face when you get a conquest core after a long hour or so in cq. Wasn't the change to the last boss of an expert to only drop epic loot done for a reason? People got tired of running experts for crappy blues and wanted some guaranteed worth for the effort and time they put in to run the dungeon. Give CQ the same thing. I would rather see conquest cores removed completely imo. At least then I would get Infinity Stones or something I can actually use.

    Its not just me that feels this way then....

    But then....

    Everything that the chest at the end of CQ is garbage really apart from the RIC. Best fix - remove the temporal core since nothing should drop PvE items anyway and replace it with a timed version of the depleted supple crate. Also, remove the 500 IS reward and replace with mebbe 50 depleted infinity shards.

    And then, while they are at it, they can replace the daily warfront reward chest too. various rewards that are useful to anyone, anywhere, ever would be nice. Small chance at depleted infinity shards and depleted supply crates from them also.

    And then, Change the weekly guns for hire reward chest in the same way - also give it a decent chance at dropping a depleted supply crate or depleted infinty shards.

    Then we might have something worth having from the reward chests in PvP

    yes please get rid of dungeon gear rewards for pvp

    if you want to try to trick people into buying those speed up thingies, make the timed chest one of those depleted pvp chests.

    Didn't you know: conquest is the best competitive pseudo open-world large scale pvp, infused with profound pve elements available. And If you're really lucky; you can get some awesome empyrean slayer marks. I totally want that tier 1 raid gear part from only pvping, since it is really challenging to get. Hopefully I will get that part after 1000 times looting the box .

    What's more intense then stillmoor? after zerging for 1 hour for the win; I get to zerg even more for my loot, and beating on that brain dead raid boss for a minute to get my awesome rng loot. If I don't get my loot I just /yell my team so bad, and rage retry and smash conquest even more.

    What's even more gratifying is love how steppes of infinity was made for brain dead pvpers. Conversely was it made as tier 0.1 raid content? because the devs must've saw it was the best solution since 0.5 raid content stillmoor was to hard simply to hard due to the many pvpers that quitted? I know rite what noobs! pls come back, infinity steppes to the rescue. The devs sure did do a good job there. I love how predictable the results are and the spectacular terrain and the challenging mechanics when I run between bases. Steppes of infinity is better then stillmoor, because I'm almost guaranteed to get my rng loot if I decide to join at timer! This content is certainly so addictive that I want to play it 10 times a day, if I wasn't limited to 24 hours a day!

    ??? tl;dr These rng conquest vaults are overkill, they give gear even better pve gear then what I can possibly get from mercenary crates, oh boy what fun, I love rng... infact I hope everything goes rng in 3.0.

    I forgot to answer your question, since I was to consumed in writing the wonders of rng.The wait is what makes the loot more desirable right? If you really can't wait you can make the pockets of the devs warm, correlating to what you said that you need to buy $25 worth of aligners to open them. It is a win win situation for everyone right? The devs know the little pvpers that still do play the game are to incompetent to get their own gear and like face rolling newbies. They probably then thought, by checking their data to see why many of them raged at level 40; the reason being dungeons got to hard. So they try to get pvpers the option to attain some basic gear for pve incase they change their minds. The gear from these rng chests/vaults also helps new players gear up faster for both pve and pvp. Killing two birds with one stone... I know Trion FTW

    Is conquest still mandatory? I was hoping by delaying having a lvl 60 this long they would have made it worth the time for fun instead of a grind it has always been described as.

    back in February I posted this thread. while the CQ chest remains unchanged, most of the suggestions can now be found in the depleted supply crates, apart from the marks of notoriety, which they gave us separate pvp pills of faction notoriety to purchase from the rift store.

    I was making jokes all week about how another timer Trion put me on for a while was going to be up a week before I could even access my Temporal Cores. And I got the cores first.

    12 days is sort of long for them to contain the majority of sub-par quality items they do. The gimmicks in this game just make me want to rip my hair out though. How about this. When you get a temporal chest, you can open it.

    WHOA, HOLY AMAZING IDEA.

    I wouldn't mind waiting if they offered something worth waiting for, but to date, they have not.

    I hate this chest even more than the dungeon marks. I join a HK PM. Bust my *** for a half hour in stilmoor. Then loot a chest that I have to hold for 2 weeks to salvage a crappy blue piece of rogue tank gear with parry.

    Throw in some novelty pets or something. Make it interesting.

    Please, please do not reward PvP with PvE items like Temporal Conquest Cores. Anything but PvE gear.
