    Default Warning: Upcoming Planar Essence Unsocketing Change

    Hi everyone,

    I just wanted to give a heads up regarding the following change:

    Once this week's hotfix goes live, unsocketing a bind on equip planar essence from a planar focus will give you a bind on *pickup* version of that planar essence, which will immediately bind to your character as soon as it enters your inventory.

    Effectively, all the essences that currently say "Bind on Equip" but don't really bind to your character now will. If you want to unsocket one of these essences and trade it to another character, you have until the hotfix to do so.

    Since the essence is Bind-on-Equip, then equipping it makes it bound. Therefore when you unsocket it, it's a soulbound item. If anything, I have to ask why wasn't it working like this already.

    @OP Thanks for the heads up.

    P.S. Nightmare Tide is certainly shaping up to be a prophetic name isn't it? <laughter>

    On a brighter note, no more cash shop rune unsocketers. Drop more cash shop stuff please and maybe Nightmare tsunami's of player leaving will cease.

    Process of hot fix and aftermath:

    1: planar unsocketing fix goes live
    2: People become angry.

    On the bright side, Fae Yule should return within the next ten days...just in time for final exams. Trion couldn't have planned it better.

    Default Pardon my ignorance

    Pardon my ignorance. Am I missing something here? If I want to upgrade my essence why would I bother 'unsocketing' it ? Surely I would just save my dosh instead of buying the unsocketimg item and overwrite with the one I want to use?

    So you could give it to an alt, a friend a guildie or sell it, I would presume.

    My only concearn is that BoA essences remain BoA with this chance.

    What was the point of introducing the 'unsocketing' device in the first place then if they didn't like the idea of being able to trade? They have a value of just a few gold even high end so who is going to spend 144 Rex to get bacj 15g?

    Because sometimes you want to move them to a new upgraded focus or are putting together a more specific focus ie all sp or all cp. Renting essences was never possible before.
