    Default Autumn Harvest - Potion Quests not repeatable??

    So its that time of year again where artifact collectors get all excited for what is in my opinion the most fun event of the year.
    We log on and wait for the autumn Harvest event to begin. It pops up and we start collecting fungus hurray! We then go over to the event instance ready to hand in our haul for lots of potions woo!.... but oh wait..... its not.... repeatable????!!!!!!*$$%?Sshabadoodaba!!!??!!

    I hope this is just a bug because otherwise the best Event of the Rift Calendar has just be ruined : /

    I couldn't agree more.
    I hurried home from work all exited, just to find that there's only a few daily quests to do, and if you want more dimension items , gear etc. you have to pay with credits.
    I'm NOT impressed

    You can buy the potions with ambersap. 81 ambersap for a bag of 10 random autumn harvest potions. Given how readily ambersap is dropping from rifts, you should be able to have a good pile of potions.

    No, those are the Visual Effect Potions not the ones that let you see the artifacts.

    Default Lets hope this is a bug and not an intended change.

    One would hope if this was an intended change they would have made some form of announcement or added it to the patch notes.

    Maybe a CM or Dev will happen to see this post and give some verification?

    This must be a bug. If not then I really dunno what to say.

    Collecting lots of artifacts and fungus was what made this into my favorite event in Rift, and with this change I don't think I'm going to bother with it at all anymore.

    You can look at it two ways...

    1st - if the potion quest was repeatable and we were able to farm Tens of Thousands of artrfacts like many of us did in previous years, dream ribbons and all recipes associated would be worthless, and a big part of the game economy would collapse along with a large part of the artifact resales.

    on the other hand, like everyone else I was not expecting this change and had played and dealt with this event in mind - another stealth nerf from trion !

    In the end, I think it's something they had to do, and the game will be better for it, except of course that we can trust trion EVEN LESS AFTER THEIR AH CHANGE and general lack of communiction on many issues......

    Thanks again trion

    Its only for a couple of weeks a year. It might have a temporary effect on ribbon/orb prices but this is outweighed by the sheer fun people have during the event. I am very very disapointted in the change if its not a bug and I am also getting pretty tired of the lack of communication from Trion in general

    For the life of me, I can't possibly fathom why you would expect this. They don't announce stuff like this anymore.

    This. The flood of artifact last year on the market was CRAZY. The options I had were to either SEVERELY nerf the number of artifacts available while under the potion's effect or gate the supply of potions. I went with the latter.

    on the other hand, like everyone else I was not expecting this change and had played and dealt with this event in mind - another stealth nerf from trion !

    There has never been and never will be a promise that content from a seasonal event will remain unchanged year to year. We retire some items, add new items, retool some content, and/or add content in the downtime between annual events. These changes are not announced because they are not changes to Live content.

    If I had to nerf the rates during the event, then yes I would announce that. But each event gets to launch with a clean slate.

    I am getting ready to add some new Fae Yule quests and achievements. Those won't be in any patch notes either. You'll get to find them when the event goes Live in December.

    I understand some disappointment, but this is consistent with how all our cyclical events have always run.
