Since this is a Game Feedback thread that IP2 claims to read, here are some extra musings.
Players went wild with event chests directly after weekly reset to pull Arachnean Weaver. The global chat announces each mythic pulled, there were dozens “Archproxy Yvendra” entries within a few minutes, and many more to come. Now those players have way too many Archproxy Yvendra, zero Archnean Weaver, due to what for all practical purposes was a configuration error on IP2 side.
The really OBVIOUS and TRIVIAL solution would be to allow players to exchange an excess Archproxy Yvendra for a missing Arachnean Weaver in the Soulforge. Take away an Archproxy Yvendra. Give an Arachnean Weaver. The Soulforge is perfectly capable of doing that, as has been demonstrated with past recipes. And IP2 is prefectly able to add that recipe to the Soulforge for a week, as has been demonstrated with the 2000 diamonds “best compromise”.
So why, WHY, is this OBVIOUS and TRIVIAL solution being so excessively STONEWALLED, even after having been proposed several times? Archproxy Yvendra and Arachnean Weaver are both standard run-of-the-mill mythics located in the very same drop pool, at the very same odds. Is it because players rank Arachnean Weaver as one of the very top mythics, so IP2 feels they can safely gouge an extra 2000 diamonds (several hundred dollars worth of “gem value”) out of their configuration error? Or is the concept of “equal exchange” simply something that hasn’t reached the powers in charge at IP2 yet?
I really, really, hope they can draft someone to reply to this, I bet the whole community is dying to know the answer.
