Aye, it isn't a matter of "giving up" for some of us, it is that we asked (repeatedly and to no avail) during beta for details on the ability. When the recipes got changed AFTER we had tested them on beta (suddenly BOOM, the advanced books had adept recipes instead of experts and the books for the experts appeared on Oliver) we asked for confirmation and details (again to no avail). We couldn't test the process, we were not given detail on how it was "supposed" to work, and since the staff did not have stats on beta, we could not test how shadowed harvesting was working, much less how to verify that how it IS working is the intended way. The TS line got a lot of eyeballs and a lot of responses in beta. There are still a few rocky spots, but there's been enough response that we know issues are still being worked on and looked at. The recipe books and itemization on crafted stuff are issues we're seeing that were reported weeks ago on beta. Add in the process for the shadowed rares not being fully understood and "probably" not working quite as intended, and folks are antsy at the silence. As a player *I* am antsy about it (especially given how many, many people have vented at and to me about it every time I log onto Discord or into the game), even as I recognize that there will likely be silence on it until next year.
