    Default Total Frustration

    I spent $80. dollars on Fragment Boxes from the Rift Store.
    Twenty dollars at a time x 4.
    All Fragment Chests were Revered.
    I only received two possible fragments I could use (Crit Power).
    As a Cleric/Level 70, I am really looking for my primary needs such as Spell Power and Wisdom, but out of all of them, not a one.
    Now I have a bunch of Level Three and some Two's that I can't use, sell, or trade.
    Really?

    That is a reason why they were implemented like this - you spending money until you realize that it's a scam (like any other kind of rng boxes by the way). Then you stop, but you are not alone who doing it, so it is a good source of short term income for trion (like it was unstable boxes which dropped everywhere and required keys for credit). You cannot scam your players all the time - but nobody cares about future it seems. Looks like current focus is on new players which coming, spending money and moving to something else.

    I don't honestly think they did this as a cash grab. I am giving them the benefit of the doubt here. It is just a system that had some good intentions that sadly didn't work out well at all.

    A common word I see in game and on this forum with regards to fragments is stress. This system causes a lot of stress to players. Regardless of anything else, if a system is causing a large proportion of the players to stress out and become anxious then that system isn't working and needs to be looked at. This is a game, causing stress and anxiety about a system is not good at all. We just want to have fun right?

    I don't like this system at all. I think it is confusing, stressful and makes actual item drops a lot less fun. My personal opinion would be to scrap the whole thing but realistically that is expansion level changes. It's ok to do this btw. We tried something it didn't work. Ok no problem we try something else and learn from our mistakes So....

    Constructive suggestions to improve the system:
    • Have rep boxes only drop class specific fragments.
    • Have tank and dps fragments seperate - no dodge appearing on a crit power/ap/crit chance fragment
    • Get rid of this tier system. It confuses everyone. Have any stat on a frag possibly be the main stat at the top. This can be the RNG rather than praying not to get block on a dps frag.
    • Documentation. You have to provide documentation i.e. in game guides on how the system works. What does this do, what is this, what is that. Players have so little information. If you need to close the game and look at forum posts and spreadsheets then we have a problem. Saying this if I am asking for almost a manual on a game system then we have another problem.
    • Have all stats available from the start. Change rarity to mean just how much extra stats on each stat there is already when you level up.
    • Lower the cost or increase how much of a bar you get without critting

    100% agree. I believe i heard there is a change coming but haven't seen any details. Has maybe the dev's care to comment ?

    I'm just hoping any changes to the fragments doesn't end up as:

    HEY all that time and effort and plat you spent upgrading your frags?

    WASTED

    Have to get a bunch of new ones now that they've been changed!

    fragments are a complete cash grab. there isnt really any other possible way to look at it.


    also, if you solely pvp, youll never get any useful frags. lets say you did though, you wouldnt be able to afford to upgrade it because you dont make any plat from pvp.

    A dev already mentioned that another tier of fragments could be introduced in the future, such that the existing ones are superceded.
