"Tengu Weapons" from the faction vendor don't have unique names

So, I'm assuming these are new weapons. They seem that way. But, just to take the first one "Tengu Axe",

There is already a "Recipe:Tengu Axe" that makes a completely different weapon.

This is sloppy and needs fixing surely. Shouldn't they have a more specific name - "Tengu XXX Axe".

    So you want Tengu red axe?

    Well maybe something a bit more lore-y or creative, but yeah! Recently we've had Tengu Echo Weapons, Volcanic Stormcaller weapons, for example.
    At least don't give them the exact same name as an existing recipe that makes something different :)

    I think they should change the recipes' names to include Echo instead of renaming the weapons.

    They should do both. There is more than one Tengu weapon set, so each should be more descriptive. There is no reason why the faction vendor's set is the definitive "Tengu" set. And, yes, the recipe name should correctly describe what it is for.

    Okay, just to clarify things: you are referring to the Tengu Weapons from Drizzlewood that had recipes. The new set does not have recipes, correct?

    The new set does indeed not have recipes.
    I don't think they even have any items associated with it. They probably are just wardrobe unlocks - like the other collections on the faction vendors.

    However, the names of the recipes for Tengu Echo weapons can be confusing with the new set, since the recipes are missing the Echo part.

    Got it, thank you. :)

    But, they do have a different name, really. Assassin's Tengu Axe, for example.

    Assassin's is just the stat prefix of the Tengu weapons.

    To clarify: the Tengu weapons from the vendor are not just wardrobe unlocks this time. You get a real, exotic weapon with assassin stats from the vendor as well as a drop from the supply boxes.

    I saw that after my prior post as well.
    Said prior post was just assuming based on past faction vendors.

    Assassin's Weapons are nothing I'd use my Tengu tokens for though.

  • Unfortunately though since it is technically a new "collection" (even though without a related achievement) with only one obtainable way (marks/seals) its kinda odd that you get them to shred them.
