Re: Turbine cancels Phase B of Legendary Item Revamp
a couple of statements to address.
1.) "the system is broken."
my only problem anymore with the LI system is that you have to trash it at expansions. That SHOULD NOT BE. I will detest that til the day I die.
But i think thats the only problem left.
You can keep one LI forever (til the next expansion) because theres so much customization possible now.
The only random variables left are the initial passives on the item, and the major/minor chance at reforges
Any LI can be taken as is and turned into exactly what you want. All it takes is time.
Getting your perfect weapon should take time and work. (A grind is ok with me as long as I have exactly what I want at the end of it.)
Someone was mentioning before, their aversion to the melding system. Actually I think its great.
Being able to get exactly the relic you want is a good thing. Dont you remember how it was at first? ugh
2.) "I decon tons of them. These are what they call legendary?!"
Legendary items are not meant to be legendary when you get them.
They have the POTENTIAL to become legendary through your adventures.
Deconning a bunch right away shouldnt be a huge issue.. theyre meant to be insignificant when you find them.
Its the player that makes them legendary.
Again, (..and again,) ill point out: They are not supposed to be legendary when you find them.
3.) "Its all just one big grind."
dont like the grind? DONT GRIND. Just. play. Have the LI in your hand or in your bag, and just play the game.
They'll develop by themselves through most of the things you do.
Yup, they do, in fact, grow with you. No grind needed. just patience. Ignore them until they need reforging.
but again, unfortunately you do have to trash them eventually. And i curse Turbines name for it. It is just WRONG. They want you to spend more time on it? fine. give it the potential to be raised higher through a lot of work. dont obsolete it!
Other than that, though, the LI system is in a fine place now.
