Relic Amplifiers, The Gear System & Our Next Update [MEGA]

    We will also be kicking off a new round of changes intended to make it easier for players to reach higher gear tiers and access the Relics system. (More on how this is going to work in a future post!)

    Ok so my initial question is: Should we stop gearing and wait for this update since it will be easier to gear characters later? I don't want to waste crystals and gear pieces on a commodity that is going to be cheaper in a week or two?

    What does this mean:

    "Portrait frames will change to match your alignment once you gain access to that character’s Relic Amplifier."

    Will different gear change a character IE: Bastilla and Bastilla fallen in the future could be the same character, just depends on what relic you equip?

    Actually I guess it will just turn the color of your alignment.. over thought it.

    Let me assume an gatcha update, making it random to get in packs?
    I don't see this going anywhere with that information.
  • No more gear tiers for the foreseeable future? Cool...

    The items are locked behind g13. As we knew they would.

    Hordes of unusable gear for the long time player that accumulated them. I have such a bad feeling about this. Especially since gear has been their bread and butter for so long. Now they are saying this will be the new thing.

    Gear tiers are a mess, for sure. I’m glad that some type of change is coming to them. But that change is just ending it? I don’t see it tbh. As someone that has been playing since almost the beginning I’m sure I’ll see a message in a year or two saying how they haven’t updated a gear tier in a year or two.

    As someone with a lot of accumulated useless gear I have a feeling that they will run out quick. Also highly needed gear I’m sure will be needed to make these items more effective/useable. So sure gear more readily available but we will need them twice.

    A new toon will require gear 13 maybe 1-2 zetas and now their highlighted iconic item. It seems like red stars but for gear instead of shards. Maybe that’s better, idk.

    As with all new things introduced we have to just wait and see. Maybe a fresh start with something new is the best way. Yet, I remain highly skeptical.

    TLDR- Wait and see :)

    but also to adapt to the game changing (new raids, the territory battles, etc). And while the current gear system has offered tremendous flexibility, it’s starting to show its age


    Sorry, where are these new raids haha

    Actually, a new raid (including ships!) was mentioned during a Q&A. It's just too early in the development now.
    Also, you are missing a / in one quote tag
    Revive the stores, the game needs it.

    Can we see at least 1 new relic gearpiece, and the stats/abilities that it gives?

    You don't want to get rid of mods. Trust me. You know how in ships, matches can be decided by a 100% tm coin flip? Not having mods would meat this happens everywhere and also that you have no way of outspeeding a G13 character without having G13 yourself.

    Yes. I'm going to hold off on using crystals or GEC (or other premium currencies) for the time being.
  • Relics sound SO great. While mods offer a decent amount of customization in stats, I really hope relics take it to a new level. Looking forward to it!

    @CG_SBCrumb so I know I just made a quick sloppy mobile phone edit but would it be possible to have relevant stats added to the screen? The other side could list offense #s and crit %s.

    I'm down for that idea, but add a little toggle to turn off the stats for those that one the full view. This way both sides win.
  • I love it! it reminds me of when World of Warcraft had their relic weapons and we upgraded runes. After that, exp, it pretty much stayed the course. Looking forward to it!

    Don't do G13 requirement for the relics. That sucks!
  • Way to much dead space, unless of course you plan on releasing a playable version of Jabba..... which I honestly hope isn’t the case 😜

    I really like the idea of showing stats on there like Whazn shared and the idea to toggle them off and on.

    As far as the Relics are concerned this just sounds like another gear tear to me as well, just packaged differently. We all know how you love making us need hundreds of certain gear salvage that are hard to come by that are needed over and over again. G12 plus and g12 finishers are a perfect example of how you have shown you truly don’t care about the gear crunch..... more Stunguns, stuncuffs, Cry-otrchs, etc.

    I smell thousands of more Cry- techs needed along with the lower gear salvage we don’t need for anything.

    At some point you need to start loosing the load for new players and helping out your invested players.
  • The way I’m reading this means relics aren’t unlocked until G13?

    Am I reading this wrong?

    No, that’s right. G13 must be a big enough wall that they need to entice us with more power to keep the momentum -expectations- going

  • This could be the straw that breaks the camel's back in terms of veteran players leaving the game. Already seen quite a few in my guilds/shards leave in last 2 months, this latest money grab could force quite a few dolphins and FTP players to give up making 2015-2016 arenas fairly quie
