What I look forward to with episode 18

    It's my understanding, although I could be wrong, but there is no elite gear in episode 18 and the difference I. Cr/stats will be minimal. This is actually a relief!!! As I am very tired of the gear chase as I've stated before.

    If there's no new gear, I will look forward to just playing some new content.

    Also, Mepps... Any word on the PM between us?

    An update would be nice, even if it's just a, "we're still looking into it" type of thing.

    they are replacing the elite gear from episode 16 with a regular and elite versions in ep 18
  3. CaptainColdilocks Dedicated Player

    Ughhhhhh. So another gear chase with remodding and all. Wicked.

    I know sometimes it feels like a hamster running on a stationary wheel

    youl be happy to know that green gear will now be 122cr and blue drops 126cr :)

    Wonder if there's any chance we could get... Oh you know, some recovery kits as drops in the new content?

    The good things is every month they'll be dropping just 4 pieces of gear, it's now 130, and that will be the best gear for that cycle. So for example if you get the 130 chest in episode 18 that's gonna be the best chest piece until episode 21 comes out

    It's only a gear chase if you let be. I know I'll be happy with just having vendor gear and not worry about elite gear

    Unfortunately, I'm that guy.

    What's the point of having 2nd rate gear? I never played super Mario to almost rescue the princess.

    Well then all I got to say is I hope you like coming out of wallet every month

    Under the drop rate scenario you would play super mario and the princess would only be there some on rare occasions and you would commonly get Luigi and sometimes toad.

    I will state that:

    In the last 3 episodes, I've spent way too much on replays and the last episode was my breaking point as I went 20+ bosses with NOT ONE drop. And that has left a bad taste in my mouth. With the newest episode being released, I will wait to hear about the drop rates before I use 1 replay badge on the content. If it drops loot at a fair rate, then I will support it as I enjoy getting gear drops, but at a reasonable rate.

    If I hear it's terrible loot drops again, then I'll just wait it out until the inevitable hot fix comes that increases the drop rate.

    Bahaha! That's good.
  14. Sleepy Healer Steadfast Player

    Again that's your choice. I haven't spent a dime on replays in years but that's my choice. Being 2 crs below max isn't bad

    I'm sorry, Mario, but the Princess is in another castle.

    Keep in mind that the gear progression and all was messed up for E 15-17. It is to be righted with E 18 going forward. So it's basically as if 15-17 never happened. You're starting over with E 18. But from there on it should be a lil smoother. As has been stated, the gear from E 18 will not be replaced until E 21.

    So shake it off and get back out there!

    I USED to be that guy...
    You know the guy that would spend obscene amount of replays week #1 to get main toon to MAX CR then the burn was there to make sure both roles were MAX CR. Only later to get on my main ALT and feel squishy so rinse and repeat.

    However after the last 3 episodes the Devs coming in and "adjusting" the drop rates or admitting (insert issue here) was actually right and then fixing that...I have since said F U to that and until they put highest CR in vendor they can kiss my lilly white arese and the money that came with it.
  18. Derio 15000 Post Club

    IDK who told you that lie. But there is elite gear in episode 18. The difference in CR from vendor and drop gear is still 3 which still makes vendor gear unnecessary. And supposedly the drop rate on rare gear should be balanced this time.
  19. Malachyte Devoted Player

    But that's not a fair comparison. We rescue the Princess, the gear that drops is just based on the stupid, idiotic luck system they developed.
    If I wanted to play a game were my optimum outcome was based on luck, I'll go to the casino and play craps. This luck loot system is a frigging joke

    Really? Cause that's always how I played Super Mario. She was always in some other castle. You would think that after the third wrong castle Mario would think to stop for directions. ;)
