Ecobahn.4367 Posted August 12, 2021 Share Posted August 12, 2021 (edited) So its taken me some to suddenly realise this, and I would be keen to know if anyone else felt the same. I have two Legendary weapons, The Bifrost and Kudzu and I crafted them 'the old way' by gathering & earning enough resources/buying from Trading Post - before the new Collection system was announced/released and before Legendary Armoury. I liked the idea when Gen:2 Legendary weapons were released, to have collections to 'find out more' lore behind the weapons and to do things in stages instead of waiting on the RNG-Gods to bless you with a Precursor weapon drop. But, even though I have unlocked the above named Legendary Weapons, I haven't automatically completed the Collection(s) associated with them. Now, I understand to some respect, because its new content that me or other players could enjoy and as mentioned, learn more about the lore behind the weapons / find new fun ways to earn Legendary Weapons....BUT this means I have to repeat Bifrost and Kudzu even though I already have them. I know there will likely be some players out there constantly working on Legendary Weapons to sell on Trading Post for profits, or others who would not mind 'repeating the process' just to learn more about the weapon(s) - so I guess none of this matters to them. All I know, is that it took me AGES to craft The Bifrost and Kudzu and it comes bittersweet to know the Achievements Panel doesn't acknowledge that effort. Like I was thinking, maybe have descriptors over sections in the Collection, so that new and old players who have unlocked/completed the weapons already, only have to read the lore to 'catch-up' what was missed? I don't know. And I don't know / haven't heard what the other Collections give, but I heard Kudzu gives access to a 'Hidden Garden' at the jumping puzzle in Mount Maelstrom - which I can't use, because I didn't craft Kudzu the new Gen:2+ way. But maybe I'm alone? I understand there had to be drivers towards new content, new ways to craft Legendary weapons I get that. I just personally, don't have the time to craft multiple of the same Legendary Weapons I already unlocked - so like, it kinda bites to me. I also guess if only Kudzu had a 'special unlock', it wouldn't be so bad - but I am obviously biased as I unlocked Kudzu. To me its a little frustrating and annoying that I spent all that time and resources and I still missed out on Achievement Points towards it and / the 'Hidden Garden' unlock, to which I can only obtain now by essentially repeating the process. So anyway, I guess this post is a Suggestion - to see if post-rewards are possible in some way? I don't know how Anet would be able to differentiate though between those who actually crafted the old way, or who bought direct from Trading Post - and whether there should be a distinction of auto-unlocks? But I think that would probably be a separate thread on time spent/gold-paid debate where everyone plays and earns things however they want. Ideally I don't want to get into the latter. I just wanna suggest post-rewards (for me and anyone else who might've felt the same! :p) Edited August 12, 2021 by Ecobahn.4367 Spelling/grammar Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
