    For a completely fresh player that is true. It depends then on how long you you have been playing the character. The only reason my characters aren't maxed out at 1000 sparks each is because I throw them in the guild coffer.

    @pitshade

    Engages nit-picking mode....I gave the requirements to create Power Points in Sharandar that you left out. I have been playing for over two years, none of my four characters are maxed out in Feywild Sparks as I rarely visit Sharandar with any of them these days. Anyone looking to generate Power Points using this route needs to be aware of all of the requirements, not just the ones a long time player still takes into account.....Disengages nit-picking mode >:)

    My 5 capable characters visit Sharandar every week for the weekly quick 6750 raw AD (including AD bonus).
    Because of that, I get 100 Sparks every week for each toon. Average time to get those AD is about 3 minutes.

    Yes, the Arcane Reservoir weekly for the RAD and the thaum stones keep me close to maxed out on sparks.

    I just find it odd people got 3-4 power points in a row.. I dont remember ever even getting back to back ones.. maybe.. didnt really track it hard.

    but I know, I never got 3-4..

    Most classes are good at or around 90.. some like DC and CW.. are better into the low 100's.

    GWF/GF can get away with like 88 ...

    EVERY class has stupid things like SOOTHE and GRAND FISSURE (whats grand about that!) that you never need.


    Are you stating that it can't happen because it hasn't happened to you or something else?

    Some players just want all skills at rank 4, no harm, no foul. Eventually it would happen anyway unless of course a player refuses to spend the points. Some players use the "stupid" skills, all players aren't cookie cutter build runners.

    i used to do arcane reservor nearly everyweek for ADs, thaum stones, whatever it drops for gold (worthless), hadnt bother kits since they nerfed since they often yeilds non-tradeable mound sigils which i dont want.

    sigils are becoming more offending and most hated items from chests. i personally believe, in my opinion, those sigils are belong in stable vendors, once buying a choice of sigil, then you can use your crafters to make upgrades.
    devs however could add special sigils as "unique" version, no green or blue copies in lockboxes.

    The problem with getting Companion Upgrade tokens is Money.. I am a VIP rank 9 i get my keys save them for a week and on top of that I BUY KEYS. and after a year of the RNG Demon i have 20 tokens.. 20!!! and not one single companion out of any of the hundreds of companion packs rewarded from the lockboxes... No Big Deal.. But these people at Perfect World Arc or whoever doesn't really care about making it easier for us to get 120 Tokens in a years time of playing. They Want Your Money.. Simply put. The can care less about you getting an imp to Legendary status or not.. and getting those 30 Companion tokens out of the box is like someone opening a box for the very first time and getting that Legendary Glorious Mount Pack. Can it Happen? Yes.. Does it Matter to them?? Yes... it means someone forgot to hit the stop button to stop that person from getting it, and then they lose out on some money for keys to have that person open up more... or does it???

    Case in Point unless they are getting paid with our Money getting the rewards changed is next to "Never Gonna Happen"

    I'm all for it.. give out the Better Companion books 50k exp vrs the 5 @ 1500... Rank 5 enchants... i'm 50/50 on. I don't mind getting them BUT after almost 100 power points and counting I would LOVE to see some rank 7's instead. Heck Make a Fashion Line from common to Legendary and add that into the mix that is Account Bound. 1 piece at a time. Get the developers to Create a Weapon or Armor Enchantment that is CLASS specific that is Character Bound starting at rank 6 and adding that into the mix. Give us some Flavor!! Give us a reason to Grind even harder... Might be surprised on how many EXP booster deals you might sell cause of it..

    Rant over.. Penny tossed..

    damo, it not just PW, they are just contract publisher firm, it seem leaning on market team, they make bad choices or either they are greedy and cut dev teams if they cant get enough cash.
    this whole market team just need full overhaul and get someone who really good at making players happy instead of seeing paywall that we all faced with.

    i am sure some devs may not like what they are doing, this game wasnt like that when it was launched, they tore up since mod 2 and mod 6 made it worst ever, still not recovered.
    you are right about that RNG demon, random was use for lockboxes, and now they run it rampaged on every platform into casino like format. most players hated it.

    when newer players come on and join, they are finding so bad once they hit 70 lvl, to see a true idenity of "paywall".
    if you played STO, they are on right track and Neverwinter isnt and done badly.

    (noted to NW team), they are saying they got 15 millions players, becareful on what you are boasting, you are making big target for hackers. look what happen to WoW and Sony, both are victim of data breaches, and sony let go of some games to DBG to take over some games. i just wished this company should not brag and i am sure they will be regretting soon.
    just remember, next month is May in just few more days, worst month for any internet games, there are going to be huge hackfest contest between hackers. they do that every year. they are not hurting but only seem to exploit security weakness, and they are not part of 3rd party gold seller sites, just different kind of "hats". so, keep eyes out for news during month of May intil early June.

    Players spend money on Neverwinter because they choose to.

    If players want to "stick it to" Cryptic they only have to stop/reduce buying Zen, can pretty much guarantee Cryptic will be "all ears" for plausible solutions then. Why is that such a hard concept to grasp? Players have conditioned themselves to exert increasing amounts of effort/money to progress and the game is immersive so a number of players can't stay away and this is exactly what a number of game developers bank on. The players hold the power which is money yet they don't use it to their advantage for discussing REASONABLE changes to the game.

    When you have a large amount of players in a F2P game that essentially won't spend any money whatsoever for any reason no matter what the prices are (you also have players that do things like AFK farming heroics, etc. generating AD from little to no effort to fund there characters) it's harder to "treat" the player base as a whole because the more the developers give, the more the players want, the less Cryptic gets, less incentive to buy Zen, the more revenue generating things are brought in and the cycle repeats itself.

    Players often claim that implementing this and that will generate revenue guaranteed, how much though? For how long? Will negative players or those who grow tired of the grind be able to "cheat" the system? Those are things a number of players don't think about but rather care about what's in it for them though best believe Cryptic thinks about those things.

    Cryptic is a business and they are GUARANTEED to have a team of people they pay to analyze data, form scenarios and crunch numbers all day to determine feasibility, etc.

    The "paywall" can be circumvented by time/AD generation though a number of players don't want to spend the time or generate the AD so it leaves the pay option which some take yet then ironically complain about it.

    You don't see people up in arms about not winning the lottery, why, because they know they didn't have to buy that ticket (getting keys).

    There are a number of players on this end that are near 3k ilvl or higher, haven't spent a dime, have been playing less than a year and don't spend all day everyday playing.

    see my post on april 28th just few posts in this page? note to the devs.

    Moderators, my apologies for off topic, but it was for head ups for devs and players.
    dont know if i am psychic or easy to predict, almost 100 countries were vyber-attacked on May 12th with ransomware bug.
    we might be this lucky when not targeted by hackers, they seem to have pick bigger targets this year, month of May seem to be "Hacker Season of Massive Mayhems Anniversary", and we dont know what next year they will do, and i am sure it will be epic portion unless they are on hunting list by law officers.

    the keys to prevent of being a victim, never open any emails that doesnt look right if you see "exe" and dont ever visit any 3rd party sites since they have leyloggers during hacker season during end of april to 2nd/3rd week of June.

    now return back to topic, thank you.

    Trinity, those who dont care and will spend regardless how much the cost raised, they have larger disposible money, and most of players who on F2P can still refuse to spend once they hit 70th levels, they have choice, leave or stay and struggle with frustrations of trying to refine the runes and enchantments.
    some of newer players didnt know they were nerfed while older players have so far advanced with maxed runes and enchantments, claiming it is too easy and wanted harder challenges.
    they cant compete with those in PvP when devs are pushing players into PvP when they hated it the most just trying to earn some reps/marks and seals they need to upgrade.
    others feel "lost hope" and give in to 3rd party sites and getting the risk of bannings or accounts stolen.

    I still think it be nice if they added a companion upgrade token along with the 5 tombs of experience and 10 uncommon companion tombs of experience. I sure would like to see a few XP rewards increased, similar to rewards from celestial chests being improved.

    It be nice but that only means it's probably unlikely. :'(

    I just wish more celestial chests felt like they came from a god who was looking out for you... much the same with XP rewards coming from I presume Lord Dagult Neverember for your dedication to keeping Neverwinter safe.

    maybe sons of nashers were upset with Neverember because of poor RNG he use and they want him out for good, they want better leader and better loots.
