It was a good thread and it showed if we put pressure on the devs, things happen. That much can and needs to be said. I’m glad you made it because without it even the day 8 change wouldn’t have been made.
It was the only thread about Soulforge with any traction, thus the best place to continue to keep making it clear players care about Soulforge. I was very frustrated when P-R was forced into the forge because it had the effect of dramatically reducing participation in the thread. As a result, no one’s really talking about “Hey, Soulforge still doesn’t really work that way.”
This is a frustrating problem for people who don’t have all of the troops, because the people who do tend to get more attention when they care about an issue. It is a persistent thing that will affect all new players and get worse as the game goes on and more legendaries/mythics are introduced. But an endgamer who has all the staples is likely to never need Soulforge again.
I didn’t mean to personally offend you, and I do note you expressed condolences that I didn’t get my Pharos-Ra as you exited the thread. But in that thread I was desperately asking people to try and keep the fire burning. I didn’t want to see yet another instance of “got mine, screw you”, like the Dawnbringer thread.
But it’s what I got, and it hurt my feelings.
I abandoned Soulforge as an issue because if I spend all my time pushing threads about game issues I care about to the top, I end up very unhappy with the game. I still hate Dawnbringer in Arena even though I’m 20% of the way to crafting one. I still wish Soulforge worked as Nimhain explained, even though I have a Pharos-Ra. I still need mythics, dammit, and I don’t like knowing the one I want may never come. If someone posts a thread, I point out the places where we’ve spent the most time discussing them.
But let’s face it: we’re both reasonably certain that promised Soulforge change is never happening. There are so many things like that.
