Another way to upgrade a companion is by paying Astral Diamonds. To upgrade from a blue to a purple companion it would cost 500,000 AD. If you don’t have 500,000 AD, you can exchange ~1,000 Zen into 500,000 AD.

    You are assuming that the conversion rate is the same across all platforms. PC may be at 500 but PS4 is just north of 300 making your breakdown very different. Although it sounds a little steep still, people need to use their own judgement. Perhaps someone only needs 15 or waits for a 15% ticket or even some of the other big sales like Black Friday again bringing another perspective of what is an good deal or not.. It isn't perfect and unless all currencies on all platforms are the same it will never be.

    The update description stated you could purchase equipment at the Zen store. All I've found is the bundle of 20 keys with 1 piece. Is that all?

    Since Power Points are now in the Zen store have they been removed from the over 70 level up rewards? have not received one in a while. What about astral diamonds as well? Haven't seen those in a while either. Only level 5 enchantments.

    Where in the professions is the new armor, can't find it?

    Where in the Zen market is the other armor piece if you want to buy?

    Can the Testimonies for Vivifying armor be bought somewhere?

    I got a power point last night in the new mod from Overflow rewards, so they are still there.

    You can also do the campaign task that awards you with a power point each time.

    The thing is, however, that loadouts reduced the need for power points. Previously you had to have enough points to get rank 4 in any power you might use under any circumstances, but for example with a different loadout for solo vs. group play, you use fewer powers per loadout - meaning that you need fewer power points.
    Hoping for improvements...

    I am bringing up a Paladin as a alt. and running my two load outs as the two different paragon paths so i can hopefully switch between tank and healer, so I need a minimum of power points, But I am doing the same with my GF to play with the Swordmaster paragon path.

    PC is basically cryptic’s testing ground, so if it doesn’t work there then the prices should be readjusted for all consoles. At a conversion rate of 300 AD per Zen you’d have to wait for a 50% off sale for the purchase to make sense. Even if you just needed 15 more tokens, you’d be better off converting that Zen to AD and buying the companion packs from the auction house. That way you still get at least 2 tokens per pack plus some refinement, and a possible bonding stone which you can sell and get back more AD then you spent. So NO MATTER what console, the prices are still ridiculous.

    I noticed you can now purchase a Storm King completion on the Zen store, but yet you keep giving us Genie's Gifts. Do we now have a place to use Genie's Gifts for Storm King?

    ...

    Well, they still drop randomly, but i'm also wondering if they have decreased the drop rate with this patch?
    I do believe in killing the messenger...
    Want to know why?
    Because it sends a message!
