boss scroll Fragments of Memory Suggestion


8 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

With the addition of Boss Armor, Kzarka Weapon as well as the new gear from Valencia on the horizon, the market cost and availability of Fragments of Memory used for durability restoration is spiraling out of control. There are simply not enough to go around as more and more players hit 50+. The price peaked at almost 500k each last night post-patch, with Ancient Relic Shards nearly as expensive. The demand will only continue to grow, which will outstrip supply in a matter of days. This will put upgrading and maintaining endgame gear nearly impossible by the time Valencia hits.

My suggestion is 4 fold: 

1. Add Fragments of Memory as potential drops from ALL boss scroll bundles. Since they have a chance to drop the equipment, why couldn't they also drop the means to maintain them?

2. Increase the uses/durability restored  or decrease the cost of the Artisan's Memory item in the Loyalty Shop. 1,000 loyalty points is outrageous for a single use item that restores 2 durability. 

3. Allow them to be crafted using high skill Alchemy with a rank 3 Refinery.

4.  Allow us to purchase them with Hunter's Seals.

Any combination of these suggestions would be sufficient to ensure that supply doesn't outstrip demand, leaving the majority of the players dead in the water in regards to gear progression.

Thank you for your consideration!

I've always wondered this myself.

I can see virtually no reason why daily bosses can't drop fragments.

 

I also shake my head at the loyalty store item every time I come across it. The price is beyond unreasonable for what it does.

I would however not put such an item on the cash shop.

Putting Artian's Memory into the cash shop would introduce a huge P2W aspect into the game. That's the last thing we need.

Lower the loyalty cost and FORCEFULLY cap Memory Fragments to 300k in the marketplace, as is done with certain crystals and other items.

Well, I'm all about options. I don't think putting them on the cash shop would trend towards P2W, because it's a repair mechanic, not a boosting mechanic. Enchantment is still RNG, if anything it would pull more money out of the economy due to cost of weapon stones. However, I do see your perspective. 

I edited the original suggestion to remove the cash shop option and instead made a suggestion to allow us to buy them with Hunter's Seals, which I think would probably be the most viable option since endgame play revolves partially around chasing those.

Actually been thinking about making a post about this and here you are.

There needs to be alternate ways of obtaining memory fragments or high end items need to be made less frustrating to repair.

I think adding the ability to trade hunter seals for fragments would do alot by itself and seems like a pretty straightforward thing to implement as well.

Reducing the cost of artisan's memory would also be a welcome change, 1000 loyalty for this item is quite frankly ridiculous, not worth more than 200 max.

I like the idea of Hunter's Seals. 

Definitely 'NO' to the Cash Shop idea but making them available possibly in bundles of 10 through the loyalty store would also be a step in the right direction. (Or alter the price of the current thingy (can't recall what its called) that increases the regain from a memory fragment.

Same here.
Loyalty shop, yeah okay, it's fine since it's game related.
But I never want to see anything related to gear upgrade in the cash shop.
