Dragonfire Potion

Postby Mandlz01 » Wed Aug 02, 2017 5:17 pm

Just curious, what does it mean when it says in the patch notes: "Replace Dragonfire Potion (Pending)"? Cause I'm not gonna lie... This scares me a little. Ok, a lot!
You make it sound as if it's going to be hard

It's a surprise, you have to wait to see how mad you're going to get.

From the other thread:

The DFP isn't getting nerfed (another misused word fyi) but the requirements to craft it adjusted to fit it's value.


So probably a nerf, but no details yet on what exactly has changed (resources, craft times, horns, precraft, etc.)

I'm placing my bet on a precraft.

Well the other day I managed to fuse a mythic dragonfire potion from a few epics....so I'm good in that department. Oh well, time to go back to ocarinas.

After:

So one more horn and less oil, not too bad. (And for gearing purposes much friendlier than adding a precraft :) )

Ah, the problem of introducing such a potential moneymaker for a large chunk of the playerbase: needing to balance it around "current" tradehouse prices of artifact/precraft to regulate profitability of getting the artifact/precraft from tradehouse instead of questing/crafting it...
(if tradehouse is left out of consideration, then for a person not questing the horns, it went from horns for 1 DPF every 1-2 raids to every 2; no more price change at the 36th collected raid horn... (not sure if it would be unreasonable to expect tryhards to be gunning for horns quest 36 weeks after hitting raid milestone 24/25... ;) ) )
as of 2016-09-11: Player level: 44, City: Eolythes, Blueprints: 517, Mastered: 419, Crafted: 78.61K
(except for tier 1 and some tier 2 artifacts mostly running my shop/gearing self sufficient)

That is a pretty good balance. Horns can be bought or quested for, but you need to constantly refill oil with millions of gold. Now you can make one more potion using twice the horns.

The bottleneck was (and still is) the mana. Not the oil.
