    Default "we got a bunch of yellow dopants collecting dust here, we should be selling em!"

    I guess won't be collecting dust long.

    Don't forget that part you are not saying - The current amounts are being Doubled

    +1 is now +2
    +2 is now +4
    +3 is now +6

    So for those of us that made +1, +2, +3 Skill X GS items, the items will still net +6 Skill X. It is just the +1 and +2 parts are just no longer useful. This means its current value stays the same, but its potential value can only be reached by starting over.

    Thank you so much for placing the OP in context.

    Default clarification

    I was not attempting to confuse or spread doomby omitting anythign relevant. ofc realize the doubling value means they do same thing now as before. but they could do a lot more.

    I was pointing out that the value for your ingredients for all that goes in to a t3 shroud item has a lot more potential now, which in and of itself good enough reason for many ppl who use those items to deconstruct the greensteel and start over, resulting in big demand for yellow dopant.

    You are correct the potential of the item is greater, but in not pointing out that they are doubling the amount you potentially awoke the wrong reaction in people.

    The need to rush to modify the item is really determined more by how it is being used. It also serves as a potential warning to those newly creating such items for their characters.

    IE if a +6 charisma skill item was used simply as a switch in UMD item, or as a NPC Skill Check item then there is not as much a rush to reconstruct the item as there would be if the item was used as part of a semi permanent wear.

    Well, no....

    What is the greater potential?

    For Illustration, let's take Con-Op. The recipes can still only be crafted certain ways.

    What are you going to take? a Lore? They're eliminating lore items...
    Wizardy VI, +1 Int Skills? At least it's not +Cha Skills.
    +10 HP since its +skills will be trumped by something else.

    For Tier 2, you have the same practical +50 SP only (or +4 int skills Hey Spellcraft is going to be an Int skill!), +15 HP only, a soon-to-be-non-existant Lore, or.... Regeneration. Rebuilding it isn't really going to make it much better than it is.

    This may require some research.

    Honestly with the retarded drop rate of the Dopant in Shroud, and the stupid inflated price of the same in Store, they have to use all the tricks available to them to make us partially willing to buy it.

    I still have 8ish items taking dust in various banks, just because the Dopant should have been a 75K plat ( or 100k plat ) consumable bought from a vendor, and I'm not going to be ripped off by buying some.

    I hope everyone will get a free Dopant. Clear way to make us purchase dopants.

    They're clever, making parts of our greensteels feel useless (and therefore able to be deconstructed and redone better) all while pulling the "we didn't nerf" card to stifle any complainers.

    Sure, they could have done it simply to make exceptional skill items have stacking that stacks like everything else in the game, but my poor tinfoil hat would feel lonely that way.
