    Default patron ability bugs- artifact tracking and currency bonus

    Issue 1: I just got patron status and it started me with 7 charges of artifact tracking. I used 2 , then 1 refilled this morning for a total of 6. however, I am down to 1 without using any. Plus, I have characters on several shards, and it is yo-yoing between 1 and 2 charges depending on what shard I log into.
    Issue 2: the patron currency bonus is not applying correctly for me. I noted several specific examples as follows: I ran intrepid adventures on 2 different shards and had these currency drops: #1: 1 plat, 71 gold. bonus: 11 gold
    #2: 2 plat, 47 gold. bonus: 11 gold
    #3: 1 plat, 91 gold. bonus: 14 gold
    #4: 2 plat, 16 gold. bonus: 10 gold
    However the bonus is figured, this is not 15%. I finally got patron only to have these issues within one day, it is frustrating. I reported both to support, but it takes about a week for a response, so I don't know if it will be resolved in any meaningful way.

    hmm I have a weak computer, and play on low. I don't know if the resolution will be good enough to see what you want to see in the chat box, but i'll try.

    It's hard to tell (timestamps in chat would help, but only a little), but I think you are looking at two different monetary awards. One for killing a mob or completing the last objective, and the last for the quest.
    Try testing with a solo quest and make note of the rewards, and your plat before and after

    which is what I got

    no the small monetary award for killing a mob in an ia is like 10 silver and I can see it when it scrolls as it happens. this is the bonus, I'm pretty sure. I never had a double entry for an ia finishing like that until I became a patron.

    My artifact tracking charges came back, a day later. I guess i'll use them before they bug out again. anyway, that is one issue solved. on the currency bonus, perhaps I am reading it wrong, but I don't think so. maybe it is just in IAs specifically?

    well, I spoke too soon. my artifact tracking charges did come back at 6, so I used 2. this left me with 4. however I looked later and they were again back to 1. so this continues. as for the currency bonus, when I saw that my charges for the artifacts came back, I thought I would try out an IA to see if it was the same. I am now sure that that entry is the bonus, because this time, on my home shard of laethys on my main toons, it was giving me around 30 gold bonus on a 2 plat reward which is indeed around 15%. who knows if this will stay stable, or if my other shards are working correctly.

    Default currency bonus

    well, I checked on my other characters on the other shards besides laethys. they are still getting lower than a 15% bonus. on my greybriar character I was in an IA, and saw the lowest yet: a reward of 1 plat, 71 gold, 26 silver with a bonus of only 7 gold, 28 silver. since the bonus seems okay on my level 65+ characters and not on my level 25-35 characters, perhaps the bonus is scaling by level instead of just applying correctly? no idea what's going on.

    continued in the IA on my greybriar character, and got:
    #1: reward of 2 plat,71 gold,35 silver with a bonus of only 5 gold, 71 silver
    #2:reward of 2 plat, 40 gold, 55 silver with a bonus of only 8 gold, 88 silver
    these lower than 15% rewards continued as I played more in the IA

    Ok, you're right it's not mob or objective rewards.
    I don't know what the first line is, but I don't think it's the patron bonus though. When you turn in a regular quest, you only get one line, that includes base and bonus.

    Have you got any items equipped that would change your bonus up the way - token gear or moneybags trinket - that may alter the stats slightly.

    Regarding your artefact tracking pots you may want to submit an in-game ticket as this sounds as though it is not resetting properly every 24 hours.

    No, no items equipped that would make a difference. And, like I said, I have now done some further testing. it seems that the bonus is applied properly on things like dailies and other quests. this says to me that its a problem specific to instant adventure awards. after more testing it seems to be perhaps a matter of scaling, ie the lower level characters are getting less bonus, vs my 65+ characters getting the 15% and sometimes a bit higher than that, when it should be a flat 15% regardless of level. As for the artifact tracking charges, it continues. the charges change by character, not by server. for example on my main shard, laethys, character #1 logs in and it says 4 charges. character #2 logs in and is down to 3 charge. then character #3 logs in and its up to 7 charges.

    Default Customer service response

    well I got a cs response on both tickets I submitted. both responses were the same, a form letter response saying they couldn't do anything.
