So if you have been living under a rock or just simply new to the game, there exists a few magical items that can be used to give your character bonuses at the expense of another negative effect. I call them "tomes" a lot of people refer to them this way. It is known. So let me just get right into it: I'm not sure why people look the other way and assume it's fine when it comes to the rarity of these items. When these were first introduced to freedom/chaos coming from epic they had a increased drop rate off uniques. Later it was nerfed into oblivion for whatever reason. If I take a guess here, it was probably because of "they're to strong in pvp QQ" Why add them then? Back then you could get one for like 30s a charge. I sold a giant walnut for about that price. Right now you're lucky if you get a charge for 100s each. Recently one sold with 3 charges for approximately 545 silver. Yes that's right. Cringe. Some will say, "oh just go kill uniques for them! Or, oh just go make alts and win the game and pray RNG for easy goals" Why should a game feature have such a pay wall? Why should I feel the need to premium alts and try my luck getting easy goals? Why is the paywall bad you might ask: Most people will say you don't need these for PvP or PvE and I agree, however the usefulness of these items still remains especially if you're competitive by nature. Some of the combinations of them are really strong. The paywall is already high enough, if you consider dragon and drake armour. Good luck getting Arch Mage. RIP. Why are they so rare: Why not give us other methods of obtaining them similar to how masks were handled through archaeology. People are paying out the nose because they want that advantage, it's broken and unjustifiable that any game item should be so highly sought out. I'm going to say it because it's relevant, but this system is as pay to win as it gets. It's gross. How to fix this system: I don't think removing them is possible, it would be nice as I stated if you could obtain them through other means. I really don't think it's fair to keep them on uniques alone. Thoughts, comments, concerns, rants? I'd like to hear them, thank you for your time. Thanks.
