Ahoy, adventurers! As mentioned on stream, we have collated the community feedback and made some changes to the upcoming Epic Guild Tasks. I mentioned this in the original thread, but thought it best o make another official post for those that find wading through over 500 posts daunting. So without further ado, here are the changes.
(Please excuse my super dodgy edit, just posting this before I go and get something to eat.)
The red task which gives treasures will be changed. This is due to the community saying they have enough treasures, largely due to the incorrect drop rates of chaos portals. (Which has now been fixed, and the rates are displaying correctly. You know the story.)
Instead of pulling more treasures, there will be keys included in this Epic Task. You will receive 90 gold keys, 44 glory keys, 19 gem keys, and 17 event keys for completing this task.
This is the compromise the developers came to after I put forward your feedback. I have been collating data (from the forums, social channels, and Reddit) and liaising with the developers during this time, and I want to say thank you for the work and effort you put into presenting your feedback to us regarding the upcoming Epic Guild Tasks.
I know that this solution won’t please everyone, but I do believe it is a fair compromise. The gem value of this task is a little over the gem value of 5 Legendary Tasks. Many players were upset at a reduced amount of keys they would receive by not being able to complete as many legendary tasks in a week, so we introduced this as a compromise that will reward you with an amount of the sought after resources pulled from Legendary Tasks. I know it isn’t necessarily the exact change, or perfect solution that some of you want, but I am very proud of our team for coming up with this compromise, and being open to your feedback. This change means that low to mid-tier guilds will now have access to more keys, as many of them weren’t reaching Legendary Tasks in the first place. It still means that the hardcore end-game guilds will need to complete both the pre-existing and new Guild Tasks to unlock Legendary Tasks, but you will also receive some more keys along the way.
In 4.7 guild seals will also be increased for each guild member, which will mean that more chests can be opened once the update releases.
I know you will all have a lot of questions, but there isn’t much more than I can clarify at this time. I recommend that you swing by our 4.7 Update Preview stream next week to see everything in action, watch me and Ozball discuss the patch notes, and answer your burning questions.
Thank you for your patience during this time. These issues can’t be resolved quickly due to numerous moving parts, and we did our best.
