    Upgrading an item to celestial is too easy!

    The cost associated with upgrading an item to Celestial is significantly lower than it probably should be. You only need 1 type of material (Celestial Essence), and you don't really need that many of them considering that you can get them as drops. I suggest raising the cost to also require 1 or 2 Celestial Orbs in addition to the the current cost. Heck, maybe even go as high as 5 - 10 Celestial Orbs, considering that this upgrade raises all the stats of an item to near perfect values; an enhancement which practically makes Celestial Orbs useless. After all, why would you need to increase one stat by a small amount when you could instead increase all stats by a massive amount, for much less, by simply upgrading the item to Celestial?

    There is one caveat, items which are not character-bound can be used for 5 star story mode farming, so they're technically more valuable, thus it should be harder to push up their stat values. Yet, it still would be much harder to get a perfect level 75 Legendary piece of equipment than a Celestial piece of equipment, even with these proposed higher costs for Celestial upgrades.

    I should also add, the drop rate for Celestial Essences seems a bit high. I think it should be at least 1/3 the current rate, maybe even as low as 1/8. It definitely feels way too easy to upgrade to Celestial. If left as is, I can see a future where everyone has an excess of Celestial Essences in their crafting storage, because they're so easy to get, and so infrequently consumed.

    I agree with Shade Glow , transforming celestial should be costly. And it is costly enough cause you can only create it by salvaging 2-3 Celestial items. And I don't think we need to do it harder than that.

    But, it shouldn't drop, as in zero. No random stash as well cause that defeats the purpose of a Celestial.
    The thing is as we all know, it didn't run smoothly and that is the problem we all face right now.
    Before we know it, Lvl75 celestial will flood the game in no time, even before the season comes to end.

    I really like the Lvl75 increase cause that really gives us new things to look forward to.
    But I hope it takes longer before it became a common thing.
    As what was mentioned above, a game needs a rare thing, those you can get only by either playing hard or paying hard.

    Please note: Travis (Support Manager) is already tasked to read every message posted. He discourages being tagged because of the need to clear the Notification.

    I am not sure that he would be the one to advocate for such changes you recommend, in any case, as his focus is to keep the "game system" running smoothly.

    It is 2 days from the update and it seems that some players are still allowed to run the old version and have advantages. I would consider that as a BUG and report it here.

    Ah, an older version of the game. That makes sense then.

    What version of the game are you running?

    RockDoc and TerryDarc, It seems Celestial Essences have been removed from drop tables in version 1.4.13. I don't think they were intended to be available as drops in the first place. It's unfortunate that the implementation didn't go as smoothly as planned, but we should all be grateful that Making Fun has listened to the pleas of the players and provided us with a means to re-roll celestial items. I find it very exciting, and I'm looking forward to the next ANB event so I can earn some more Celestial Cubes. I've even heard rumors that there might be a way to earn Celestial Cubes that provide up to level 75 equipment, but we won't know for sure until ANB comes around.

    It would be kind of cool if level 75 Celestial Cubes were only available (if at all) in ANB Gold at TL 100 or higher. I really like the fact that these super strong pieces of equipment are also super rare. It always bothers me when a game lacks truly rare items. However, with the new Dressing Room system, they could easily provide super rare skins, and I would be satisfied. Hopefully ྿༻Travis༺྿ (Support Mgr.) sees this and influences the dev team.
