So, when is 12b coming?

Postby Shadowblade » Sun Sep 24, 2017 21:07

Thursday, 28th September, 2017, is the last scheduled 2xRP Weekend we will have where we can use Artifacts as feeders.

Unless, of course, they release Mod 12b on Thursday, 28th September, 2017.

Anyone have any info on the intended release date? They just started the Day of the Dungeon Master event, which lasts a month, so I'd have though some time in October after that event ends would be good.


Cheers!

My guess is 17th or 24th, but the event timing is indeed weird. Double Experience, which normally runs before major content updates, is a week later. The calendar itself is stuffed until November. Hard to draw conclusions from that.

17th or 24th of October? That's fine by me!

I still have some Alts who have not got Bruenor's Helm yet, which takes about 90 minutes, and some have a rank 59 Champion's Banner from the Siege event before last.

So that's a R59 Stability into a R1 Stability into a CW Sigil, I think!

No date released. J0shi's guesses are as good as any. Nothing stopping them from releasing in the middle of Day of the Dungeon Master.

Terramak did say at some point that 2xXP might not be as good an indicator of future release dates as it had been in the past. Julia confirmed that the final 2xRP for PC would proceed as scheduled.

Mod 12B will definitely be before November 22nd and after October 2nd.

Thanks for that, lowjohn, and well done for your official forum post in response.

Artifact gear should assume a 2x Matching Bonus and be treated as "Always 2xRP", for 80% return on RP-rank already invested, whether Main, Off, Neck or Belt.

Artifacts should assume a Matching Bonus AND be treated as "Always 2xRP" as well. But maybe the Matching Bonus should not be 5x as it is now.

The current return of a Rank 59 Stability fed to a Rank 1 Stability on 2xRP is 1,239,200, so with the new RP values, that would be 1,239,200/10 = 123,920. If they made Artifacts consistent with Artifact gear and Artifact Weapons to give back 80% of that, we'd get

0.8 * 123,920 = 99,136 RP.

But that still means that burning an Artifact into raw RP currency would generate more RP than we put in (29,354). This has always been a nice glitch in the system, but perhaps something they never really intended or thought would happen. At least, new staff who weren't here 4 years ago probably think it's a "bug".


But they would still have to rework the entire refining system and RP needed per rank for Artifacts that go to Rank 140, as if they made the Artifact Matching 2x and Always 2xRP for 4x, we'd still get a variable amount with rank, and at lower ranks we'd still get more RP out than we put in, until rank 82, where we'd get 98.11%.

:?

The simplest thing would be for artifacts to give us back 80% of what we put in, but that would make Artifacts much slower to refine. A Rank 59 would be worth 23,483 RP instead of 123,920.

They will release on Nov 14th or 21st. This year's Black Friday will "feature" a further reduction in discount, and there's no better time to do that than right after the inevitably bugged module release.

Will there be a new Lockbox? Not sure whether to save my VIP keys or use them on Merchant Prince box

New module always means new lockbox. No exceptions.

Probably January, mod 10 released in October on PC and January for consoles , I would be surprised if they released it in December

For consoles I'm guessing the 9th or 11th of January, 2x Exp is ending then, and they need to start work again after the holidays...

december would be a good time for them to launch it, the rage would have subsided by the time they return from vacation. it would be a very cryptic thing to do

They had this line in the dev blog-post about the change to random queue that says:

"Both of these changes are going out this week on PC and will, of course, accompany the launch of random queues in Swords of Chult when it comes to console early next year."

So I'm guessing they push the disaster 12b will inevitably be, past the holidays.

Maybe they're hoping people will have spent some money already, when they bend us over...

or maybe they are hoping that an announcement of new content on PC will help keep consoles from some of the departures of players 12b brought to PC since it did not accompany a promise of future interesting content

One thing is pretty certain, unless mod 13 brings some serious fun back into the game, that is it for me, and probably many others.

Mindlessly grinding ToNG for superior enchanted stones won't be very fun, and with 12b they made it take longer due to stats drop, I really hope there is something exciting on the horizon by then...

it's particularly hard for BIS folks who feel like they must be BIS. The drop rate on the stones is so terrible that unless you have 100M+ saved up you see no light at the end of the tunnel in terms of returning to BIS. As mentioned elsewhere, settling for R13 will be the new BIS for most folks and those with R14 will be viewed as nothing more than P2W cause there is no possible way to farm all those marks in game
