I am happy that honing up to 1445 is now free of gold and I couldn’t care less about the gold nerfs considering that you don’t need it anymore until attempting to push to 1460 and beyond. If the gold nerf bothers you so much then maybe you should try to experiment with different things and figure out how to make extra gold other than from raiding.
One thing that I have always disliked about this game was the abysmally low honing rates. The required cost and mats would be fine a single hone that should be a easy upgrade but no, honing rates are so abysmally low that your honing costs accumulate astronomically.
I agree with someone I read post about this earlier, higher ilvl characters should be earning more gold from raids than their alts.
that was literally my last reply to you and I said you should make the argument of having more liquid assets to maintain your main and that my argument only works assuming your main is maintained on top of alt pushing.
but for most hardcore players that isn’t an issue, especially ones who bus. Like I said what I suggested should only be for hardcores who play a lot and will play for at least 1 year
As i said in the OP, i don’t mind a gold nerf that is reasonable. I also like the fact that honing to 1445 is now free of gold. But the nerf was just too much. If anything, they should reverse Valtan HM nerf, and nerf Vykas NM so it’s not an infernal torture with pugs. That would still mean a reasonable gold nerf to alts (Argos down to 1/3, Vykas down to 1/2), but a space to breathe for making some gold and pushing further.
Don’t know I made yesterday the Ayaya and honed directly to 1460 without buying any mats so it cost only a bit gold from 1445 to 1460.
Yes a Express Event character get enough mats to hone till 1460 and even above maybe only some leaps (depends on luck) will be missed.
And that was the 2nd or 3rd express Event till 1445 so you should have atleast 2 or 3 alts at 1460 already + main above. Except you didn’t play during all that time and just started now with Ayaya.
Yesterday I met so much bad players. Not kidding, whole new level of bad players and not just new characters. No no, 1490+ characters too.
I dont know what happened yesterday but players forgot how to play this game. And no, they werent beginners. All of them with 130+ roster level.
You dont need to invest 5x3, 90+ quality in a character to not being completely useless in the whole fight. You wont be cruel fighter, totally okay, but can you not die in the first 30 second and just do the mechanics?
I made yesterday 2 Argos and both where jailage. Or better to say the people who joined didn’t even know the mechs of g1. Good that it was only 4 pugs and 4 premate where the premates where 2 high ilv and 2 ayaya. So it was possible to clear but with full pug oh no.
