  • The grind is not rewarding anymore

    I don't know if it's my luck or the drop rates in general, but speed farming TL105-TL115s seems completely pointless from a loot find point of view, which is the cornerstone of games like Eternium.
    The search for that lvl74/75 items has shifted from "let's do max TL I can handle in case I drop the godly item" to "let's speed farm TLs for mats and Morgenheim for gold, to craft another 5 pieces".
    Endless TL115 grind, 95%+ of the drops are insta-salvage lvl70 items and the rest are lvl71 and 72. Once every 3 days I'll get a lvl73 item, but it will be a "Lucky Cape of Malice" and then back to another 30 trial runs with just lvl70-72.

    It doesn't feel like a proper RPG anymore, there is no loot, the excitement of seeing what you got after that 9.5 minute TL140 run, has turned into a gambling game with Ingrid.
    I'm assuming that the Dev was wrong.

        Unfortunately, I need to do these runs at TL 80... However, the only thing that ever drops is 3 pieces of gear from Kara. No other gear at all. (Some gold and gemstones)

          I'm with you lmcelhiney . I've made it past T100 with all 4 toons, but in order to farm faster than 8-9 min per trial I need to be at T80 or T90 and I'm not seeing gear drops there above L72. Only set pieces I've seen are Adventurer gear. Also been spending too much time farming greys for GRC lol

              I'm waiting for the inevitable increase of the drop rates of 75s. Was wondering why I have lost interest in playing this game, since last month, like I used to. Your post made me remember that I hate having to solely rely on heavy rng, and that's probably why. I just always go with my gut feeling without thinking.

                Crafting should be cheaper and the sale price of unwanted gear (i.e. most) half of that cost.
                Right now Eternium is about grinding Morgenheim mindlessly for days, then when you finally get the 200k+ gold needed to craft something, it turns out to be a dud you can only sell for 1.4k.

                Then creating, enhancing or nerfing set items should aim to diversify the strategic options. Currently people are forced down a few 8-item set paths and no one can use any of the unique items other than Intergalas.

                  Yeah, I'm playing without cheating, hacking, botting or running scripts for hours on end.

                  That's why I started thread under Discussion on what is your best crafted item? Let's see how many legit L75s have been crafted by forum contributors. We know most of the LB leaders don't contribute to forums, except to come on just before ANB to let us know their team will be dominating LBs, again!
                  I say let's see what honest players can make!

                      Honestly I've found that all of my high level drops come from trial 85. I can do runs of 115 at around 3 or 4 min and it rarely pays off with good gear. Try just doing trial 85 is the advice I'd give
