    Default OFFICIAL: Eternal Weapon Quest Chain

    [Hey folks, just yer auld Dwarf trespassing here - we need an official thread for Eternal Item quests anyway, so I decided we may as well grab this one! Thank you for your feedback - please keep it on point and with lots of useful detail.
    Much obliged,
    Brasse]


    Here is a list of the current steps for the eternal weapons. (as of 24.02.2017 or 02/24/2017)

    Every weapon has a use-effect once it becomes eternal (after 3rd upgrade), which has a 30min duration (persists through death) and 60min cooldown.
    Clerics and Warriors do get a onehand and shield once the 2h weapon becomes eternal. Rogues get their second onehand once their first becomes eternal.

    Use-Effects:
    Warrior: +4% raid-wide mitigation
    Cleric: +4% raid-wide healing received
    Rogue: +4% raid-wide damage done
    Mage: +4% raid-wide health
    Primalist: +2% raid-wide damage done, healing done and health each.

    ---------------------------------------



    Only two out of sixteen steps are skippable by investing money , that's quite nice. The minion one would be hard to adjust, but I would like to see the cosmic cores one to be changed to "Salvage Planar Fragments x/n".

    Edit: Yes, it is nitpicking, I know.

    Nice find! And i have to agree, we need more options to accelerate the quest chain or it will not be possible to acquire the weapon on the first day for working people.

    If eternal weapons are 2h I don't think I will be pursuing them. And if they are not 2h I would have to think long and hard about pursuing them as I find the concept of paying credits to complete a quest to be distasteful. I understand that I don't have to complete the quest with credits. I am concerned about hitting a wall which can't be over come without the investment in credits and rl currency.

    Oh, that's sad to hear. Guess there's no chance of it being reverted then. I guess obtaining 1000 cores is faster than salvaging 1000 fragments atleast.

    You don't have to invest credits to complete the quest, it's just possible (at a steep price) to accelerate 2/16 steps on PTS. Not sure how it will look when more upgrades are added, but I hope they will focus on gameplay like in the remaining 14 steps so far.

    All the class's weapons are now on the pts with their new procs. I'm sure someone is busy making SS now so ill let them post it.

    Just wanted to point out that the weapons now start off at blue rare rarity and not at eternal right away but the lowest level weapons have the same appearance as the eternals. Not sure if that is intended since I felt the awesome appearance was part of eternals just as much as the stats.

    The rogue dagger proc adds 4% damage to the raid and the primalist weapon proc adds 2% healing and damage. It seems like the dex users got the best procs since everyone wants more dps. I'm not sure if I really like these procs too because I feel like even if we end up replacing them we will still carry them around in our bags so we can buff our raids.

    Instead of bring the player it`s again the class? Why don`t just make them 1h long and 1h cd or both 30 min...trying to fill your raid with exactly 2 of each class to have a 100% uptime sounds bad...or we all have to get some alts to buff our raids before we enter them
    Time to get my Rogue to 70 I guess?

    Default And ...

    The weapons are well named because it will take an eternity to get them fully upgraded.

    2 and 4 will take some time, the rest is mainly closing rifts.

    God forbid you can't get a BiS weapon in a few weeks that you'll use in all tiers.

    At ~5 minutes per rift (I'd estimate that's how long a lvl 10 rift takes, maybe a little less) it would take about 53 hours of farming and that's just the rift portion. Personally, I'm glad it's such a major time investment. I was disappointed at how easy the Nightmare Saga weapon was to get.

    Should have been more like an Epic Weapon quest from EQ days, for all you old ppl who know what I am talking about....

    This is more of a grind than a quest, but at least it is something to work towards!
    Those that can, do. Those that can't, write guides on the forums.
