    Would be better off removing it, mostly just ensures that the majority of players have no idea whether or not they're stat capped because the mitigation percentages written in the character panel aren't actually correct.

    Increasing the ember rewards for weekly quests DOES NOT make up for the plans SSG have for embers in the future. The weeklies we have are not fun. If anyone of you developers played the game, you'd know that. This feels like an attempt to appease the huge number of pissed off people.

    How do you know the changes are not in this patch? Have you logged into BR already? I am confused.... It clearly states Update 32 in the title of this thread... Apologies if this is obvious...!

    Why do you keep taking things away without adding any alternative routes?

    It probably interferes with the upcoming Reward Track!?

    I'm sorry but this is not enough to replace the embers we get from deconstructing useless gear we get from instances. Let me correct your oversight:
    - On a Mission (Weekly) now awards 1500 Embers of Enchantment, up from 500.
    - On a Continuing Mission (Weekly) now awards 1500 Embers of Enchantment, up from 500.
    - All gear in-game that will disenchant into Embers will come from level cap instances released after/with Mordor.
    And what about new sources for figments? Oh, and don't you dare to offer a choice between Embers and Figments as rewards, - you want to saparate the two types of currency by disabling conversion, you follow through on that separation. We need ways to get Figments outside of festivals/lootboxes/most rare hobbit gift drops.

    No you are totally right my error, I missed it. They are supposed to be in this patch. Even still my point stands. It's not a viable substitution.

    Ah, the reward track, the solution to all our problems! xD



    Also, I agree with Joedangod's post coz I'm one of those who's not enlightened enough to see behind the scenes of our stats.

    I've only posted on the forum once before I believe but this is quite an important event. I want to congratulate SSG on completely alienating their player base. I started playing this game in May 2021 and has been a VIP since June -- if this goes through, no longer, and I'll probably leave for ESO as I see that SSG is going for the record of
    fastest P2W transition.

    Earning 3.5k embers per week from weeklies DO NOT make up for the endless stream of disenchantable gear from instances. There will be no more reason to run instances except 6 for the weekly. Especially when I can spend 8 euros for 3 times that amount in 1 minute. Furthermore, as Feldanor has said in this thread, the weeklies are repetitive and boring.

    Lastly, nerfing the most accessible way of farming legendary traceries is a great move, even fewer instances to run now! What's next? Increasing the drop rate of Cracked Gundabad traceries in lootboxes?

    Instances:

    - Den of Pughlak - Removed some visual effects that would stick onto players even after they left the instance.

    How about the crawler room? It's impossible to clear can we get a fix on that? we tried lots of different combo and still were not able to clear it.

    Thanks in advance

    It's the laggiest/buggiest room but also the easiest to clear atm. Have tank run in, taunt all then go back into the hallway (Pughlak bugged out this way, crawlers can't go into the hallway), then dps goes into the room and kill mind tanglers then pick off crawlers while they're vulnerable - tank should get closer to crawlers here so anti-exploit is off and dps can hit them.

    Is anyone doing a loot box opening test just to check out what they return these days? Been a few years since I did one. And does the BR AH have a load of keys posted up like Gorgoroth's beta? Does $200 of keys get me geared?

    Blemished and Flawed Symbols can now be deconstructed for Ancient Script.
    Although the Blemished ones disenchant fine, my Flawed (Celebrimbor, if it matters) symbols appear to not be disenchantable -- no Ancient Script value shown on tooltip, Flame of Ancalamir does nothing to them.

    I've only recently opened boxes using the 4 keys on new chars , and from what i've seen or heard from people i trust , you get a random ember ammount , from a few hundred , up to a 4000 jackpot.
    Then a random ember item. Either purple or teal. You can get extra embers from that also. 200/400 i believe.
    Then you get a cosmetic , which changes when they introduce new figment vendors. Can be pet , cosmetic , mount , warsteed looks , anything the fig vendor has rly. This you can turn into a decent ammount of figments.

    I believe there's also a very rare chance you get a gold gundabad tracery.

    I got no clue about traveller boxes , prolly the same but with motes. Doubt anyone familiar with the game opens those. Could be wrong. Maybe level 20 vault mules ?
    Someone else can add more propably.

    Obviously , all these will defo change on U32.

    i'll try that but it's still a very bugged roomed that should be fixed.

    Please just put numbers on the tooltip of the instance tier buffs. There's no reason to hide something like this behind generic text.

    In this beta#3 the caps are still 10,000 and old gear and coffer gear can be flamed for Embers still. But there's a link in notes to CM's post as if it implemented already?

    What's occuring? Too soontm or already rolled back? Turns out $200 and the 59 keys you can get with it wasn't enough to fully upgrade coffer jewels and armour... @3.500 per. Return was in the ball park of 40k Embers and 20k Figments. Good news since last I tested, the gear from the loot boxes are not bound to char, account these days.

    My kids have been opening traveller boxes with their 4 free keys on level 20ish characters. Think they've all had a few hundred motes and a cosmetic item. Some have extra figments or a gear piece. One had a box of warsteed cosmetics.

    So I went in to look around. Adventurer's gear is still barterable for embers. There's no enchantment runes for motes. Only thing you could barter for with motes was travelers gear.
    Phrasing! Doesn't anybody do phrasing anymore?

    I think Squids, Raninia and Cordovan need to ask the workers what they have implemented. The first should know what's going on, the second seems to be guessing how it all works and the last forever clueless and just making it up with what limited understanding gotten by the time the meetings breaks up. You have to get your hands dirty and get stuck in or your understanding is going to be flawed and of zero help to yourself or others, even harmful; as so often demonstrated.

    Out of the 59 key test ($200) worth I got one Gundabad Gold Shattered and one Cyan for Archive bartering specific missing Traceries.

    Got loads and loads of Rugs, is Winter coming? Or does it arrive with U32?

    Any chance to get "Swift & Subtle" trait that increases Bob and Weave heal also fixed? It is broken and does not increase the heal value at all.

    I think the correct answer is that they've decided that a 6-man instance should not reward legendary traceries. It should be raids only.
