    Please clarify this concerns the exchange of Runestones of Fusion for astral diamonds? I have a lot of small stones, what will become of them?

    Wait, what? The exchange will go down before the mod even goes live? How do you expect us to know which and how many enchants to switch before we even get the chance to see how things work when it goes live?

    Combat changes are live now. Between now and the 4th is your test window.
    I have something to say. It's better to burn out, than fade away!

    Wonderful. I have two weeks to rework the builds on 20 alts. And it isn't merely a matter of swapping out enchants and runestones; it *will* involve scrambling for different companion gear with a different mix of offense and defense slots.

    I would really like to know the rationalization for such a short window.

    I agree that this is too soon. It's binding enchants as you use it so whats the rush? Leaving it there benifits the future you anyways when the meta changes again. Now we can't sell our enchants because the bind status. If we need something different after using the exchange it needs to be made and that means pres/coal wards.

    This does not affect the Bonding Runestone exchange. This is only for Radiant Enchantments and Empowered Runestones, which were what everyone used to stack Power before the changes.

    Well, i guess the Bonding Runestones exchange is going to stay? Or at least that's what i'm hoping... but i wouldn't be surprised, if that option was gone after the 4th too.
    I do believe in killing the messenger...
    Want to know why?
    Because it sends a message!

    Tenho conta desde 2014 e desta vez vou me despedir desse jogo. Horrível as alterações que fizeram, estragaram tudo. Desenvolvedores só querem dinheiro. Deixaram o jogo impossível para fazer o pessoal gastar. Acabou a diversão galera!!!

    i don't even know how to go about this other than WHY

    WHY is this even a thing you guys feel you need to do???

    WHAT THE FRAK is even the reasoning behind this other than to force us into something we might not need/want and then later have to spend time/money/effort to fix?

    is there some weird cyber role playing storage limit that the antiquities scholar has?

    "hey guys i can't keep exchanging these many, i'm gonna run out"

    WHAT THE HAMSTER IS WRONG YOU GUYS!?

    How about including insignia of brutality and dominance in the exchange as well since these are now essentially useless - both in their value in AH relative to the other more important insignia AND for any loadout that focused on power before. I have literally unslotted every single power artifact, armor mod and all my dominant's and brutality's (9 leg total) to get power to parity. All this at a hit to IL (and to my wallet in losing the $ I spent on those insignia) and now these are now less than half the value of skill and aggression insignia, now critical for damage.

    I had no idea that it was possible or desirable to exchange Radiant Enchants until I saw this thread title by happenstance. There is no mention of this in the Combat Rework posts, or in the Launcher.

    Can someone explain to me simply (as someone who does not understand and does not care to understand the technical details of all the optimisable stats) why I would or would not want to exchange my Radiant Enchants?

    This explanation should of course be the developer's job, but apparently they do not care for it.

    Because there was no real "cap" on power (rads in offense) before, but now there is. This changed the game from stacking power, so many people wanted an option to trade radiants (and empowered runestones) in.
    The trade will leave you with bound enchantments however so you ultimately lose the radiants market value. (Which is jumbled now)
    It's ultimately everybody's own choice but the game is changing too often to rely on the exchanged, bound enchants being useful for a long time imo.

    I've been advising most people to hold on to those enchants and runes. Power can still be helpful for Tank and Healer paragons who don't get Forte, or using them in Defense slots instead.

    And also, because of what's been said, they may be useful again and why hang onto new bound ones instead.
    Call me El, she/her only. Currently Professions-only until the next combat change fixes this mess.

    My tank has focus on Forte, and won't use a radiant on its equipment. Forte for my GF is a bonus compared to an enchant of 3 status: 50% Defense, 50% accuracy and 50% critical avoidance, why wouldn't I use that?
