I just discovered the Scion weapons set, now I wish we could craft it.

I just discovered the Scion weapon set, and I fell completely in love. I really like the effect. Can you let us craft them? The only way to get it is from Gift of Aurene (container) but it's extremely rare. I understand that it's supposed to be extremely rare to get, but you're missing the opportunity.

    A unique weapon set for the Dragonfall meta? Question is: is it as rare as the other ascended gear drops (Pile of Regurgitated Armor and Tequatl's Hoard) or do we have another "infusion" situation here.

    Tequatl's Hoard type of thing. Extremely rare.

    Yeah, I wish they had made that set available for purchase instead of the armor. ;)

    When I read about it in chat a couple of days ago, I went, "I need that pistol for my thief! Perfect colors matching hers, lovely effect!"

    while you're waiting for it to drop, feel free to craft the poor man's version of the Scion : Poor man's scion

    Anet: give us in-game customizable human NPC companion please
    Please, no more balance changes, or at least reset our gears so we don't have to waste gold changing gears every time.
    Please have option to not receive bloodstone dusts, empyreal fragments, dragonite etc

    These are rare but not inexplicably, indescribably rare as the infusions are. These can drop from ANY mistborn coffer and the meta can be farmed multiple times a day for lots of chances at it. I probably did over 50 metas by the time I dropped mine and likely have opened well over a thousand chests. It seems to be similar to the Tequatl's Hoad in terms of drop rate although we obviously can't say that yet.

    Sometimes having something be 1:1000 rare is good, but 1:1000000 is not good. I honestly think this set and the Teq set are the good kind of rare, and that's not just because one dropped for me, I've never gotten a Teq drop in my life lol.

    Rare is good. Credit cards are not always the answer.

    Now if only said rare item didn't require farming a group meta on a map that will be a ghost town in 3-4 months

    I wouldn't count on it, the meta seems really profitable to farm.

    That's a bit sad, I literally got Tequatl's Hoard in my first attempt...

    And so will the next one.

    Do you really think Anet's gonna release another map but not entice people to leave the current farm of the month for it?

    Why do you think dragonfall showers you with AB levels of rares in the first place?

  • Sir Alric.5078Sir Alric.5078 Member ✭✭✭

    So.... they took the 2012 ascended skins, changed the color, gave them a little sparkly effect, and called them Aurene's weapons set? I don't know.... they are not bad, don't get me wrong, but it seems kinda lame. Expecially after they designed an entire Kralkatorrik (branded) weapons set that looks a lot cooler.

    Farm of 4 to 5 months to be exact, and even then do you think anet didnt try to do that with pof to hot?

  • Eloc Freidon.5692Eloc Freidon.5692 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Its Rare, not extremely rare. Extremely rare is you aren't getting it ever infusion/trade contract. Rare is likely closer to golden fractal weapon drop.

  • voltaicbore.8012voltaicbore.8012 Member ✭✭✭

    I'll pass on the Scion set. I guess the effects are decent, but fundamentally the weapons themselves are just recolors of the base ascended skins, none of which I particularly like.

    Tequatl's Hoard type of thing. Extremely rare.

    Tequatl's Hoard is :

    • Insanely rare
    • Timegated
    • Not tradeable

    Which makes it the worst set to get for completionists as there is literally not "good way" to get it.

    This one is still rare, still not tradeable, but -at least- not timegated to 1 try / day.

    I admire anyone with that sort of time (and patience).

    I've done 5 metas. And while I enjoy this meta a lot, it's a lot of time for "just one thing."

    Hype is the path to the dark side. Hype leads to unfulfilled expectations. Disappointment leads to anger. Anger leads to disgust. Disgust leads to "oh, new shinies! I'm back!"

  • Safandula.8723Safandula.8723 Member ✭✭✭✭

    What's the difference between them, and normal ascended weapons that we craft or get from boxes? It's only color?

    Why would it be a ghost town? Unless they nerf it - it's easy, it gives decent rewards and isn't on a timer, so people can just do it without having to wait around. SW and AB are both years old and people still farm them very regularly.

  • AlexxxDelta.1806AlexxxDelta.1806 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I didn't even know those existed. A bit of RNG is fine as long as it's not infusion-level insanity, not everything has to be tradeable whalebait. I'm glad they started doing stuff like Teq's hoard again, it goes a long way to keep meta events alive.

    Yet people still do AB, Istan, SW, etc... Saying the map will just be abandoned is quite an exaggeration.

    If they are as rare as getting a regular ascended weapon box from airship cargo or ascended box from lost bandit chests then I recommend you start praying ...

    Well it's not the first time and might not even be the second time.

  • If it's as rare as Tequatl and Triple stuff, it's still more doable. You get ONE chance at Tequatl and Triple per day. You can get hundreds of mistborn chests in a day. Frankly, they need to severely lower the rarity of Tequatl and Triple. It's far too high for a one/day try.

    Not that rare, often people mention getting one. It's rare, sure, just not extremely so.

  • ChronoPinoyX.7923ChronoPinoyX.7923 Member ✭✭✭

    I'm waiting till I get lucky and actually get either this or Teq Hoard. My ascended right now consists of a Caladbolg and an Ascended Bow from Teq (not Hoard) converted to Zojja's.

    My main issue right now though is I probably missed potentially getting this drop because I always run out of keys on the Champ runs. Done about 30 runs of this Meta already and most times I run out of keys cuz each event for the meta is being done by 10 different groups. I really wish they'd adjust that to give us at least 2 keys per champ on the champ runs. I don't mind missing 1 chest per, but missing 2 chests is a bit annoying.

  • Crystal Black.8190Crystal Black.8190 Member ✭✭✭

    Adding a reliable way to get them would be nice, the same for tequatl and wurm equipment. Either by dropping a guraneed material that is used to craft them or a currency to buy them. Doing the events over and over and over again for the slight chance of maybe getting one is very discouraging. If I would know on the other hand that after x metas I would have one for sure, that would encourage me to do them for their unique reward.

    If they're as rare as Teq's Hoard then I'm not even going to bother wanting one lol.
    Things that rare are a statisitcal impossibility for me to obtain XD

  • Wait wait...So I know this thread is a bit dated but...So the only way to earn these post Dragon Bash event is Tequatl ? (I ask because someone pinged one in chat today from Tequatl drop, for the scion sword. Amazing looking. But from what I'm reading online the dragon coffer doesn't seem to be a thing?)

    Thanks for your time!

    Scion weapons are a very rare drop from the Dragonfall mistoborn coffers (Dragonfall is the final Season 4 map). If after a 1000 chests opened and no weapon, the game will give you one in the next chest.

    Tequatl only drops the Sunless ascended weapons - not the Scion (if someone pinged it as a drop, they lied)

    Dragon coffers from Dragon Bash festival are are a different thing entirely, but they had an extremely rare chance of obtaining a Sunless or Scion weapon. They were just a bonus method to the main ways I have mentioned above

    Ive gotten one Scion weapon from the guaranteed(1000 opens) and never seen another.

    In the entire lifespan of tequatl ive now gotten 5 weapons, and thats running it every day i play the game. The drop rate is -garbage- to the point i lack interest in trying to continue.

    I get that rare drops are good, but these...i unno, i dont think account bound items should be -as rare-

    It's a very tricky one to balance., but I think it is slightly overtuned

    It's why I have no interest in the new Drakkar ascended weapon drop coming soon. It'll be something I'll be lucky to see 1 if any of, especially given the boss isn't great to play against (for me)

    Sooo much this. I stopped trying as there is a high chance I can do these events the rest of my life and still not get the skins. Salt in the wound that two of my guild mates had extras drop for them that sit in their banks unused and they can't give them away because they are account bound. This content literally excludes players from the skins in it's RNG account bound design. Why not add the "mercy achievement" to these like they have with the festival skins so those of us with no luck can set a goal?
