    Exactly how I see it. Able to be converted, but highly costly so that you couldn't effectively 'farm' it.

    Yea, there's always problems gearing up people who need raid T1 gear still from RoS or GSB because no one wants to do it. I can't get upgrades from there myself so don't want to go, I'd rather bring my alt.

    Allow me to gain inscribeds and at least I'd get something from bringing my main. It will help close the gap between newer 50s and older 50s by giving an incentive for older 50s to still do T1 raids.

    The crafted T1 equivalent gear helped a lot in this respect, but this would help too.

By the time people would be able to have any gain from said crystals (AKA having more then 2 pieces of hammerknell loot), there should be a rather large number of crystals already distributed to the raid force.

    TL;DR Keep hammerknell crystals as they are - drops from hammerknell.
    Uhmmm, no. None of my guildys can upgrade gear because the use the T1 syn crystal, so I would say 70% of our loot is getting banked until we have a syn cryst and two pieces.

    Why cost marks? It's already a grind to get the best gear ONLY due to having a crystal bonus. The drops from HK suck because they get no bonus from crystals. Only way to get marks is from a boss.

    The marks should be used to FILL in the GAPS of gear that you were unable to obtain via bad rng in instances/raids. Having the BEST armor hands down due to crystal bonuses coming from plaque gear is mind boggling and stupid. So you clear HK for temporary armor until you grind it enough to get the best? Come on now!

    Give boss dropped armor set bonuses. THEN you could have the dropped crystal in HK apply to the dropped armor in HK, and the crystal that can be purchased via vendor be for the ARMOR that is able to be purchased via vendors.

    Why not make all hammerknell gear bought by inscribed if the crystals can be?


    This change is bad.

    I mean it makes raiding feel pointless if you can get raid drops from lvl 40 rifts.

    Crystals are supposed to be a set bonus, not the RNG problem they are right now.

    Even with 100 Insrcibed which is a good change, its still bad, once more, crystals are a set bonus, hence the moment you wear 2 and 4 you should have the bonus, not get cancer trying to farm crystals.

    We got maximum of 3 or 4 crystals from trash in the last 2 months + Vladmal ones, and we have people not able to use their gear because they dont have a crystal but have the items.

    This change is awesome, and i would prefer it if it was less of a grind.

    Crystals are a SET BONUS, end of story, should be available in a faceroll way without requiring farming or RNG or Vladmal.

    Hey guys,

    The gear from HK is the true gate here. The crystals were never supposed to be a massive time sink based on RNG.

    There is no "gaining HK gear" from inscribed. You are gaining your synergy crystals - which were designed in a manner that players would want multiple of them - and absolutely require the gear from HK to be useful. Consolidating them with our existing schema for gaining other synergy crystals is the logical move. You can expect to see this being the standard method of synergy crystal acquisition going forward.

    They also still drop in HK for those that do not wish to engage in other types of content - they have not been removed.

    Daglar, question. Why is everything being based on inscribed sourcestones? T1 Raid currency is absolutely useless right now with no incentive to run it. Shouldn't it be possible to buy inscribed sourcestones with Marks of Ascension? Or synergy crystals using marks of ascension?

    Thats what I said Kill. T1 Syn Crystals are bought with Pre T1 epic currency. T2 raid stuff should be bought with T1 epic currency.

    It gives everyone a reason to Do ros/gsb that is in HK, which means it could be better for new players needing to get geared.

    i don't mind buying them with inscribed, but they should also be available to purchase with T1 Raid marks or at the very least allow us to convert t1 raid marks into inscribed

    At first I thought it was dumb to have raid synnergy crystals bought with sourcestones, but now that I've experienced it I realize it was a genius decision. It has revitalized zone events and expert rifts, which is a good thing, because they are fun and build the community on a server.
