Silent Buff Patch


#1

I’m noticing a little bit of what I assume is a buff while playing since 2.0 hit but haven’t seen referenced by @Sirrian or @Nimhain, I’ve noticed that since 2.0 hit, when grinding challenges for traitstones, I get a traitstone every match playing just on hard difficulty whereas in the past there was what seemed like between a 10-20% chance of getting no stone at all. It would be nice if a developer can confirm this and if anyone in the community has any info to the contrary then please feel free to let me know.


#2

The last time I did some farming, it was pre-2.0. I kept records of 30 of the matches I had on hard difficulty. 4 out of 30 didn’t drop a traitstone at all.


#3

Any numbers post 2.0? Right now I’m 35 or so into it and at least a minor in every one.


#4

I have not paid much attention but my recall bias says that i have gotten a trait stone every single game. Then again i am also on easy mode so it could be bad recall bias.


#5

Sorry, I don’t have any post-2.0 numbers. I’ve been too busy with PVP. :smile_cat: I’ll probably do some later tonight though. I’ll let you know my numbers then.


#6

Thanks, I think stones are indeed guaranteed now.


#7

I’ve noticed that too @Cell. It seems that every match there is a stone drop. All different rarity but one for every match. Hope that is the way it’s supposed to be now because I like it. :smile:


#8

Hmm. Maybe just in PVP, since there is no difficulty setting allowed?

Edit: nope. You clearly said PVE. Hooray, reading comprehension!


#9

That is likely true for the ladder, wondering whether it is effecting the casual though.


#10

Yeah we increased the traitstone drop rate.


#11

This is the sort of thing that should be mentioned so we can sing your praises!


#12

Thank you so much for that, at last grinding minor stones are just a little less tedious


#13

Does this apply to challenges also!?


#14

Yes challenges was the reason I opened the post @Machiknight


#15

Need so many minor fire…


#16

That’s what I’m grinding for too


#17

If there was a fire minor traitstone pack for glory or money…


#18

There is currently a Green Traitstone pack in the shop, so we might get a red version at some point. And occasionally we do get the minor traitstone pack with some of each of the minors.


#19

Smoosh them all into fire. Then I’ll bite.


#20

If fire gets released I’m going to buy enough packs to trait war…
Please don’t be a waste of cash
