    Hey Mepps, if there's still discussion for the second vendor pass can we get Bombshell WW's Shield as a style.

    Also not exactly a vendor item but I have to think more than a few ppl would part with some DBC for a Themy-themed lair.

    There's the empty zone in the NE corner of the map, I suspect another bounty is coming

    You mean the one with the huge-like Gazebo? It's an area for players to hang out. Not sure if that's what you mean though.

    Yup, I would be very surprised if a second bounty didn't show up there.

    Hello Charon and the rest of the development team,

    Great reward options for this first round. I have a question, I know it may be too early or late but will the second item round possibly consist of a skeleton sidekick (sword and shield) like the henchmen version? I really like the skeletons and have been patiently waiting for them to enter the game ( I had a feeling they would eventually be put into the game). I have a type of shadow knight themed armory and a skeleton sidekick would be a nice fit/touch as a pet. Hopefully they will or if not maybe for this Halloween event, next year or so with another fitting update.

    Possible Future Rewards (Suggestions):

    I was also wondering maybe in the future for some more type of themed trinket pets but more on the permanent side like the bat/joker drone trinket. Maybe even illusion trinkets (maybe some with bonus effects too) that can be used on any summoned pet/sidekick. More self illusions are good too, maybe have some with small bonus effects even if the effects themselves are only temporary/last a few seconds on use each time, like the omac nanite circuitry trinket. Each could have a different benefit some smaller/shorter than others depending on their effect. The illusions can last as long for the temporary (special) effects, while say the other illusions with small (basic stat increase) but permanent buffs can last as long as the player remains in the form or for fifteen minutes maybe more if not permanent (and removed on zone) like some regular form trinkets.

    Secondary Reward System (Feedback):

    On another note I wanted to mention if possible since this episode was a test for keeping players on and playing longer, would it be possible if something like his was to ever come back to expand on it and allow the secondary currency to also be earned else where/throughout the whole content. Perhaps spreading the amount appropriately as you all see fit within each mission and instance available for that episode. Even introducing a secondary loot table for basic drops (salvages and other farmable resources, etc) to go with the secondary currency.

    Another thought on the currency is to increase the cap and allow it to be an account bound currency. While also putting more incentives within the special currency vendor. My thought process here is to spread the activity throughout the entire episode and to not isolate it into one part of the episode or one character. What I've noticed this episode with this was less queue times because most where only focused on the open world and weren't as inclined to run anything else until they reached a certain amount that was satisfying for them. (There were other factors that added to that decision which include feat incentives and particular drops, etc).

    Spreading and expanding on this new secondary reward system should bring more activity throughout the whole episode and allow the players to choose freely on where to farm the secondary rewards, while also being able to play any of their characters without the fear of missing out on meeting the requirements for particular rewards. It will be more refreshing to move about/around the episode from open world to instance and from one character to another without feeling burned out or bored from repeatedly running one part of the episode only and only on one character at a time. (I am not saying players can't get burned out this way too, I'm only saying it would be more relaxing and it will give more freedom to choose how to play instead of being forced (semi based on the current secondary currency restrictions) to play one character and in only one part of the episode).

    I know this was quite a bit but I had these thoughts for awhile and felt like sharing them. Maybe you guys can consider a few of them in future collaborations and determine how to possibly expand on this secondary reward system going forward. Thank you for your time and consideration. It is very much appreciated. And great job on trying something new, it was a bit refreshing and interesting.

    Sincerely: Brav

    I remember how the developers said this during the test ... but let's be honest in order for the players to stay there for more than 1 minute per month, is not enough just beautiful place, it needs something to do, if the developers really wanted to make it a place where people will be stay, then it was necessary to place a broker, a bank and a post ... this, by the way, would solve the problem of long breaks between Bounty ...

    You know, I hope they do. And you are right. I forced my league to go there for a league pic but we never go there either. It has no benefits. I only go there with alts for collection nodes lol. I do hope we can get a bounty there!

    Did you post a feat checklist for the new items available via aether? If so, it didn't pop on my screen.

    But thanks nonetheless.

    Why would it be capped at 250? They upped it for all currencies cap at 999... beside PvP currencies.

    I'm not sure what you mean with it.
    Right now the items you can buy with Empyrean Aether are Ember Chroma Set (750), Heavenly Chroma Set (750), Divine Aura (500), Omega Orbital (350), Mother Box (500), Father Box (500), and Nectars (25).

    Equipment Specialist Kassandra sells stuff for Aether. Wonderverse Supply Bot Alpha sells things for Coins.

    So, the new feats are:
    • Blighted Statue - acquire any material for Splintered Coins. Currently it's just Venom Material.
    • Hades Hath No Wrath - any aura for Splintered Coins. It's only Hera's Blessing Aura for now, but at least it's tradable.
    • You Look Wonderful Tonight - get either Swept Back Locs, Bombshell Bracers or Comrade Belt, they all cost Splintered Coins.
    • Shoulder Materials - get any material for Empyrean Aether. Right now it's Ember Chroma and Heavenly Chroma.
    • God Rays for Days - get any aura for Empyrean Aether. At the moment only Divine Aura is available.
    If you bought any of items listed above and didn't get a feat, I recommend writing a support ticket and/or posting a bug report here on the forums.

    Seasonal currencies also cap at 250. So do Marks of Legend. Marks of Valor have weird cap of 6250.
    Source Marks cap at 999 999.
    But yeah, both Splintered Coins and Empyrean Aether go up to 999, like any other episode currency.
