    MetalMan you aren't doing anything wrong! You just need to spend gems on buying crafting materials from Ruby in order to have plenty of crafting attempts....

    Guys, how do you get multiple attempts during "initial set crafting"? 4 hours into Silver I am CL 200 and TL50, but I barely had enough Essences to craft a single "Integralas Mantle"... What am I doing wrong?

    completely agree. i'd always played a regalia mage & with the two pieces i kept from bronze i now have an arcanist set that has pushed my considerably higher on the season leaderboard than i was able to do with ELR.

    in silver i'm playing warrior which i never play and trying out the warlord gear .... although with somewhat less success than my mage hahaha. but, still super fun.

    this in fact was one of the major drawbacks i thought of Eternium in general - once you start climbing the leaderboards, it becomes prohibitively expensive to try any other gear set due to number of tries it takes to get good gear and the sheer volume of grinding it takes to get enough resources to craft that many times. this version of ANB really changes that dymanic & I think it's great.

    ANB so much fun and i want more events like ANB.
    Finished tl 100 and could not be more happier that i was able to obtain to 2 CTs.
    Thanks!

    Arawn That's why i wrote most of the RNG. Right now you can have pretty much whole legendary set at 73-74 lvl. With that it's quite easy to get to TL 100 even in gold and to have some decent placement on LB.

    Some days you get lucky and some days you don't. Did't craft anything better than an L74 is Bronze. During my initial set crafting in this ANB after I hit L70 I managed to get a L77 Blackguards Resolve. With that kind of luck I might even get 2 CTs this ANB.

    so i never played the old format ANB but even with nothing to compare it to, i do love the new format.

    that said, RNG still matters for leaderboard placement. in Bronze, i crafted a level 77 Eridanus and a few level 75 items very early on, and it was a huge help.
    This time around it's been a struggle to even get level 74 weapons, and the grinding is going much slower. I even bought the 2500 gem resource box this time which i didn't in bronze, and i still had better gear in bronze. (part of the slower grind is because i'm playing an unfamiliar class, but the lack of good equipment is definitely noticeable.)

    I've just noticed another positive side effect of the new crafting system in ANB. It encourages you to switch classes! Up to now I always played a shield warrior in events. If everything goes according to plan, after ANB Gold my main warrior should be fully equipped with high level gear. So, to take full advantage of ANB crafting, I'll switch to a mage or BH in the next ANB round.

    Well done devs, I really like that!

    Not necessarily. There's also a new type of event in the works.

    Are war supplies a thing of the past with the new format?

    Yup. It's been a blast so far even with the hiccup (which could have been avoided just by telling us what's going on).
    I love how the crafting took out most of the RNG being part of how well you placed on LB.

    Adrian (Developer) et al: Guys, i have really enjoyed the last two ANBs (Bronze and Silver 4). Crafting is now a viable option in these events and makes them much more enjoyable to play. The two C-transforms are a great and fair reward. Really, these last two ANBs have been the best so far. Great job!
