Definitely agree with you that it’s an issue. Don’t have a plan to deal with that yet but will try and get to that soon.
For that matter, will Tech II sinks become normal T2 items, or continue to be weirdo hybrid meta items for build purposes?
Are the new components materials that drop, or are they manufactured, like existing Tech 2 construction components?
I can’t say much about the sourcing at the moment since it’s related to some new content. More info soon.
Great! Quite exciting for new indy content and opportunities. Thanks!
swoon consider me intrigued!
any plans for drone dda and disintegrator mutaplasmids?
And do you also take a look at abyssal pvp loot crate, since you mostly get trash of it. Maybe these items could be dropped there.
But these changes sound interesting.
I guess the question is build Zarmazds and invent T2 BPCs now, or wait to post patch?
In the past, there have been huge price spikes on release due to a dearth of materials.
I’d rather see drone mutaplasmids than dda mutas, that’d be a lot more fun - multi-use mutaplasmids for x number of drones~ “Unstable Heavy Vila Mutaplasmid”, etc etc.
ooh - will definitely keep an even closer eye on the puzzles and whispers
I am kinda unhappy about this. Unless something else changes, this is only going to drive up the already annoyingly high price of actually outfitting a trig ship. Right now, a damavik is 70 mil, and giving it a proper gun (no, meta doesn’t count) adds another 30 with the Veles disintegrator. (Or, rather, it was 30 until everyone ran to the market and bought them all out in response to this announcement.) With this change, now the minimum price for actually fitting out a damavik is going to be at least as large as the cost of the hull itself, which seems wrong for a simple T2 fit. A T2 frigate gun should not cost 60 mil! The build costs of the disintegrator guns need looking at.
The price spike was on April 5th. So definitely a leak, or was there some public source I missed?
Price or availability of Light Veles Entropic Disintegrator has been going up and down wildly, in the past few weeks. 90-100m today in Jita
Would assume they will be dropping from faction data and relic sites (I forget where sleeper encryption methods drop). Unless they decide to make them an abyssal only drop from the bioadaptive caches.
Any chance of increasing the materials drop rate to bring prices down as a whole? Prices are already obscene, these changes will increase the price on everything except T1 ammo. Unless Zero-point and Crystal Isogen drops are increase drastically any more demand for T2 parts/blueprints will further skyrocket their cost.
Any word on Abyssal stability fixes? The price increases as people stray away from doing the sites because of losing ships to disconnects. People fear client crashes, and stability more than they do the actual content. This leads to further supply issues.
Scoped and Compact disintegrators need a materials pass. While drastically increasing the cost of Veles will help them, their cost to make simply means people will grind to T2 rather than buy a modifier variant.
Any word on recycling Mutie failure rolled gear supply abyss materials of some level… or something at least interesting?
Or hacking inside the Abyss sites… 20 minutes, lots of things to do. What do you prioritize?
Will the skillbooks be made available in advance or will they be forked off of the ones that are currently being used for inventing Triglavian ships?
The veles spiked on the tech2 ammo for faction guns announcement on may the 4th.
Now please do something to fix WH loot.
All WH salvage is basically worthless.
If demand for T3 ships drops, so does demand for salvage used to build them. (I remember when melted nanoribbons were 5m!)
Too many crabs got into WHs and only lokis see large scale fleet use. Find a crabbing hole and push them out.
