    Changes in Update 32 and Beyond to Embers, Motes, and Figments

    UPDATE:


    Thank you to everyone who has provided us with extensive feedback over the past couple of days! We've been discussing things in-house and we've decided to put these plans on hold for now. If we do end up moving in a new direction regarding Embers, Figments, and Motes of Enchantment in the future we will make sure to incorporate as much of your feedback as we can. For now, the system as it currently exists today will remain in-place, and the changes related to this subject that were previewed on Bullroarer will not be in our next game update. Thanks!

    ###




    Hello! We are writing today to let you know about some changes arriving in Update 32 to the way you get and spend Embers of Enchantment, Motes of Enchantment, and Figments of Splendour. We want to clarify the value of each currency, better control their distribution, and improve the overall player experience when it comes to acquiring and spending these currencies.

    Here's the short version, with further detail below:

    1. We are significantly increasing the cap on these currencies. For example, Embers of Enchantment will now cap at 100,000, ten times higher than it is now.
    2. There will be no currency barter exchange between these currencies. Motes and Embers will no longer convert to Figments of Splendour.
    3. When we increase the level cap, or during other large item level update intervals, all of your existing Embers of Enchantment will automatically become Motes.
    4. The sources of Embers of Enchantment will continue to change as our newest content changes. The only gear that disenchants into Embers will come from Adventurer’s Lootboxes.

    Here's the breakdown as it looks for each ingredient:

    Embers of Enchantment:

    • Embers continue to be our cap level currency used to barter for cap level gear.
    • The only gear in-game that will disenchant into Embers will come from Adventurer's (level cap) Lootboxes.
    • Embers will no longer barter into either Figments of Splendour or Motes of Enchantment.
    • In Update 32 and other large item level jumps we will version all existing Embers of Enchantment in your wallet into Motes of Enchantment. Any gear that could previously be acquired with Embers will also change to require Motes at the same time.
    • The Embers of Enchantment cap is being increased to 100,000 with Update 32.


    Motes of Enchantment:

    • Motes will continue to be exchanged for leveling gear. Uncommon quality Enhancement Runes will also be available for Motes, including cap level Runes, once the item level cap for Legendary Items has matured in that level band. This will allow you to more quickly catch up your Legendary Items when the time is appropriate.
    • Motes no longer convert to Figments of Splendour.
    • Motes continue to come from disenchanting certain gear acquired in-game in addition to gear from Traveller's Lootboxes.
    • The Motes of Enchantment cap is being increased to 500,000 with Update 32.


    Figments of Splendour:

    • Figments of Splendour continue to be used to barter for cosmetics. We intend to rotate available cosmetics through the Figments vendors over time.
    • New cosmetic items will be more expensive than existing items when they are first introduced.
    • The Figments of Splendour cap is being increased to 20,000 with Update 32.


    Thank you for your time in reading this and we look forward to hearing from you about these changes. We intend to release these changes with Update 32 in February, and we'll have more information about the update as we get closer to it.
