    Hi everyone! Just want to say sounds great for now. Also it is a lot to take in having played since launch. Although I am very happy with the news. Thus I will get back to you all soon with more to share.

    We expect everything in the vault to find a new home.

    I’m really not looking foward to the new ally system. It sounds like another variant of artifacts

    With respect to items that previously dropped in the vault, will these rewards all be account bound? In particular, the omac trinket has dropped for me several times but not on toons I intend to use them on; it would be nice if items like this could be traded across toons in the same account.

    Wow, this sounds promising. I'm glad to see Dev Discussion feedback has made its way into the changes.

    As Mepps said, the item drops won't change at all and I have made it a side project (hustle?) of mine to add more cool rare drops to older content. Tiered combat pets, iconic weapon styles, etc. It'll likely be an on going project over time to add more cool shinies but I hope to get a good chunk of them implemented in time.

    Is there any news on Skill Points? I seem to remember something being mentioned about them previously but can't find any mention by searching here.
  8. Flemix Level 30

    Though there's a lot to be excited about I'll admit being disappointed by the lack of a forced queue feature for the On duty menu.
    I had high hopes for this menu revamp and it now appears to be more limited than I expected. I really thought it was a perfect opportunity to add this awesome capability to the game.
    Also, the addition of seals to the fate vendor sounds great and much needed tbh but it all depends on the pace at which we can expect to get those seals.

    I have got free seals with my membership. I have always used my legendary points. I used to use them for recovery kits but those no longer exist.

    Will the vault still exist? I enjoy doing it.

    I hope the current volume of bots and compound omegas that flow in to the game now will be maintained if not boosted. I tend to pop omegas quite liberally.

    Not included as in you will include it at some point?

    A few questions about this system.

    1. On the one hand, you write that we will be able to summon an ally, on the other hand, that we will be able to use new skills ... will new skills be available to our character or will these skills be available to the summoned ally?

    2. You named several allies, but most of them are heroes ... you also said that an ally will provide us with unique bonuses ... does this mean that if we want a specific bonus, then we will be forced to call a hero despite the fact that we ourselves villains? or will there be a mirror villain for each hero with the same bonuses? You have to understand that if we are limited to heroic characters then it spoils the effect of immersion in the game ...

    Neato. I'll share other observations in the apropos categories, but this does qualify as "a functional, meaningful change in game playability and approachability". Giggity.

    Do you mean full access as in "right to access when buying the (kinda expensive) respec tokens" or "able to change more easily than in the past?" The cost of power respec is my core complaint with the game in that I'd love to hop around to different powers by $10 a pop is ridiculous.

    Nice. This is the step we needed to make artifacts affordable. With the seals on fate and +50% nth metal, rank 220 arts and 4th slot will be a possibility, maybe? I was always up for more artifact combination possibilities but seals were a limitant.
