    Default Update 40 Sentinels of Stormreach

    Regarding the update to crafted items from the Sentinels of Stormreach, it's a little bit disappointing to find that there is no mechanism in place for upgrading previously (already) upgraded items. Or at least, I haven't found it yet. Any items from the chain that I want now have to be be farmed again and upgraded from scratch which is very dismissive of previous time invested and materials spent. Note that materials may have also included astral shards which are now as good as gone.

    Slap in the face if you ask me.

    The new items are not upgradable they drop at full power.

    That is an excellent point. I did neglect to consider that, even though I did read it.

    A compromise I can live with.

    The drop rates on that chain are some of the highest in the game. I do hope they didn't also nerf them along with improving the items into something useable.

    However, the chain reward drops the old items, along with choice of sigil.

    There are several instances of chain rewards using old loot systems, like the waterworks chain still giving mithral shields. I like it that way.

    I went farming last night in Tides just to check the change. Yup Got the old bracers. No sigils (ty)

    What can we do with the 300 or so old sigils?

    Do the new weapons work in the s/s/s epic recipes? Not that there is much worth making but some old epic items are of interest to sentient builders

    Yes. Internally, they are the old versions, just with a fresh coat of paint (and a lot less junk stuck to them)

    Did you remove the Korthos gear while you were at it? (I'm not sure whether to hope you did or didn't...)

    Because you are human.

    An awesome human because you communicate well and admit fault.
