    Why increase the amount of SP's by 15? Do you guys realize that less and less people care about accumulating Skill Points? Sometimes I really don't understand your decisions at all.

    Have to agree. Some feats give way too many points in relation than they would've had way back when.

    Omnibus Reward Box

    ^^^^ this change is fantastic!!!! If anyone knows poker and dnegs with his "more rake is better" meme. well i can honestly say, "more loot is better" :) this is a great change and i hope ppl are thankful for it.
  5. BumblingB I got better.

    God, I'm really getting drained by the generator mods every DLC. Something has to give, because it's so costly to build the .4s and then immediately the trash .0s are better. It's devastating. Is there really no way we can have the system revamped to the fortifying system like origin augments are? I know you are trying to revitalize the RnD system that was introduced since GU8, but honestly, it is a clunky system that is more frustrating that useful. If you want to overhaul the RnD system, that would also work, but as it is, these mods are for one character and one character only. (Would be nice if we can craft to account bound.)

    Love the changes to the Omnibus rewards. That way we don't have to choose between advancing our gear or that OP collection.

  6. BumblingB I got better.

    The 31st Century loot boxes from the open world still have the unattuned 279 gear and not the Omnibus 305 gear.

    Please can you add a description to elite renown on how much renown it grants the player? At the moment it's guesswork unless I consume the renown (which I will do at a later time).

    Gas prices are cheaper than this vendor person! Why such the ridiculously high prices?!?!?!?!?! If they don’t come down half way, I just ain’t playing this easy recycled content.

    The other day we queued for Omnibus in my league and we got Convergence of unmaking regular, we noticed that it's still dropping 280 gear instead of the omnibus one. I don't know if this has been mentioned before.

    Thank you.
  10. Essential Exobyte Dedicated Player

    Full gear cost is 780 marks.
    Or 815 if you also buy a trinket.
    Kinda makes it ~55marks/gear item if averaged.

    After weekly reset I can get 40 marks. Yay. (Reg content)

    And if you play 1 day a week… 780/40 = 20 weeks or 5 months just for a full set of gear!!

    Everything (give or take) basically went up by 150% compared to the standard costs.
    Chest is 60, not 90
    Back is 40, not 60
    Hands is 30, not 45
    To name a few

    This is quite ridiculous. Did someone leave a multiplier running and thought it was correct? There is no way I’m spending that much for something that is just ‘+2’ higher than purple gear. This is a major turnoff. I definitely don’t even want to log in knowing how inflated this dlc is. Smh

    Are you counting the 9 extra marks from the 5 mission?
  12. Essential Exobyte Dedicated Player

    Do those even grant marks?
  13. Sleepy Healer Steadfast Player

    Yes 3 per
  14. Salurian12 New Player

    I also find the costs increasing. Death metal guitar is 25 and the needed cat, which you need to buy at the vendor is 40 death metal each. It's 10 days dailie missions for one cat alone. In past episode gause fields were 35 marks. So increase of 5 marks there. Thats roughly 14% increase. I know inflation is running, but 14%?
  15. sebfm Well-Known Player

    Just wanted to ask if it's on purpose that the Bat Metal chest has weird clipping with the skin which makes skin appear a lot where the chest has the neck part. BTW, other than this "little" skin issue, the skin is awesome :)
  16. IonHero Committed Player

    Kinda disappointed that the King Robin Ring, isn't an OP/Omni/"All Roles" ring, like the other movement altering rings.
    (To Clarify, King Robin Ring box has you choose the role of the ring that comes out,

    Legion Flight and Speed Force rings have
    the Defense, Health & Dominance from a Tank ring of that Item Level,
    the Vitalization & Dominance from a Controller ring,
    the Reforestation from a Healer ring,
    and the Might and Precision of a Damage ring)

    Style feedback:

    The styles we got this episode are insanely good.
    Both the Bat Metal and the Amazon Metal styles are exceptionally detailed.

    We usually get styles of that quality only in time capsules recently. Very impressed.

    I'd like an answer to this as well. Everyone in my league has been complaining about it. The elite chest, for example, is 110 marks. I went back to the last few episodes - in LOD it was 85, and in Flashpoint 55. Why is everything so pricey?
