Greg.7086 Posted June 25, 2019 Share Posted June 25, 2019 Sent this originally via ticket to support aimed at Devs attention but was advised to post on forum instead. Can't really find any other posts related with much feedback. Have spoken to a few players in game about this issue so am posting on their behalf as well, but would be nice to hear from other players feedback to see what their thoughts are. If there is anything incorrect with what I have posted, please feel free to correct me, as only been playing actively under 10 months, so still a lot to learn.I think Tattered Bat Wings need to be made more readily available (e.g. from Trick or Treat Bags etc) as since are they are only obtainable from the Halloween Event Period by two methods i) Chest at the end of "Ascent to Madness" and ii) "Mad King's Chest" its way too low availability if you compare with the all other stat changeable components. If any player is looking to fully mini-max then Condi builds have a distinct advantage since the poly/reverb infusions all drop as Condi; however for the rest of players that want to Mini-max with a different stat attribute this becomes absurdly expensive: Due to the fact that they require x5 Tattered Bat Wings for 1 single stat infusion attribute change at the TP prices (only place to get outside of Event?) I've been watching over last 6 months are 20-30 Gold a piece so we're talking a mere 100-150G just to change the attribute for 1 x infusion. If this was inline with the other infusions stat change components availability/price then fair enough, you either had to partake in the event hope you landed some of the Tattered Bat Wings and/or bought cheap at the time from TP, but......if comparing with all the other infusion attribute changeable components: 1) Mystic coins, 2) Integrated Fractal Matrices, 3) Snowflakes, 4) Globs of Coagulated Mists Essence, 5) Choya Spines, 6) Ectoplasmic stone: They are all either i) in large abundance, ii) significantly cheaper, iii) able to obtain all year round freely with a small amount of effort. I am not sure what is the rationale behind why for the Ember, Phospholuminscent, Polysaturating/Reverberating Infusions Anet has decided to include an attribute changeable component that is impossible to get outside of Halloween event other than buying expensively from the TP (ofc they are not that abundant during the event and only a couple or several hundred in TP). Call me cynical but I'd like to think its for another reason than Anet just wanting to milk as much Gems>Gold for players wanting to stat change the most abundant infusions in the game, but maybe i've answered my own question?You cannot compare Tattered Bat Wings with the availability & cheapness of any other changeable components: Mystic coins, Frac Matrices, Snowflakes, Mists Essence, Choya Spines, Ecto stones.Please correct me if I have missed something blatantly obvious, like you can still buy them from an NPC somewhere. Would be nice to hear other players views, thoughts or opinions, if you think the current system is fine or if you would like to see them added to this year's Halloween Trick or Treat Bags ?
