We actually tested this option of a dedicated movement skill a couple years ago. We decided that having your movement skill as part of your build and the decision of if you should have one or not was a good thing to have in the game.

As for the initial suggestion of 2 more skill bar slots, 1.0 will not have it. Post launch, it would take a pretty big shift internally to cause it to happen. We really like the 5 skill limit a lot.

You’ve just essentially described the Circle of Fortune item faction but added a blessings middle man.

Also, we are going to make it so you can switch between previously discovered blessings instead of needing to farm it again.

Is a low rolled version of BiS gear still considered BiS gear?

Comment

Yes, we considered that. It would require us to completely change how all items are functionally structured. It’s a non-starter.

This is a hotfix designed to fix very specific pressing bugs and does not reflect even a tiny piece of all the things we have been working on.

Full offline mode is still coming with 1.0.

In case you missed it, here is a screenshot of what the selection UI will look like when launching the game.

If you read the whole graphic and the accompanying text, it is clear that these are examples of the sort of bonuses that will be available. They are not specific details on exactly what will be there.

In the FAQ at the bottom of that post, you’ll find all the trade info that I have included in my first reply and much, much more.

Thanks for the feedback.

I just wanted to chime in to clear up some misconceptions before a debate gets going on it.

As it states in the item factions devblog, all equipable item types will be tradable at the bazaar, including unique and legendary items.

Also, the chance to get LP on an item is not just one number like that, it depends on:

  • The area level you are in
  • The legendary potential level of that specific item
  • and at 1.0, corruption will start to slightly affect the chance too.

One of the primary functions of the legendary system is to give low power unique items a way to find new power in the end ...

MP cities exist because of network and server resources.

Edit: this information was posted in this thread 16 days ago with a source cited too.

Those are actually details that we are still working out how they will be handled.

It’s really just making the data collection to not be manual. I can already make the items really fast. I suspect it would take me an afternoon to make it work well.

The drop statistics you have presented here are extremely unexpected. If you do the math on it the chances of those numbers happening it’s almost impossible. Technically possible but so incredibly tiny. I would be surprised if a second person ever playing our game has such devastatingly extreme bad luck. I’m also surprised that these are the specific statistics that you chose to record as they were happening and not in hindsight.

It can be frustrating to be on the wrong side of RNG but one of the things that actually does go up with corruption is the number of those types of nodes. There is still some randomization to it so you could theoretically find a 0 corruption timeline with more of them than a 300 corruption timeline if you got crazy unlucky but the vast majority of the time, the 300 will have a good chunk more.

Don’t forget that direct trading comes with all the same restrictions as Bazaar trading, including that you can’t trade items which have a faction rank requirement, so if you buy it at the Bazaar, you can’t resell it through a direct trade either.

No, that was a reason that many people speculated on being why.

Comment

No plans to either.

If you are interested in trade and haven’t read that post yet, please do so, it answers almost all of the trade questions.

Crafting was not nerfed. This topic has gone off topic so I’ve deleted some posts and I’m closing it. If you’d like to start a new topic, please go ahead.

All good :slight_smile:

The amount of info we dumped in that initial thread was a lot and I see mistakes from it all the time so it’s not just you at all.

Good luck, if it exists, it will be from before Feb 21, 2023.

Edit: I should warn you that this is a bit of a trap because that’s when we announced the Item Factions.
