No matter what level of endgame player you are there is a struggle we all share. That being the RNG of ring drops from Vault of Stars. We are all going for a legendary ring drop which has a hard drop rate. Most of us will be spending a lot of resources of scrolls, potions, and tears of bahamut to get a clear for Vault. This is a sacrifice that we all must face so we can get the potential reward but with the drop rates being so rare and so many legendary rings it is hard to get the one you want.
That is why if we had a Vault of Stars Vendor then most players would see a light at the end of the tunnel. The vendor could have all the rings in display and every time you beat the dungeon you get a currency to trade into him. This would be a way that I know if I run for example 80 Vault of Stars (40 a piece for each ring) then I know I will be getting my two rings that I need for my character.
I know this isn’t anything new due to the existing vendors for TOMM and Zariel. Players are more open to run these dungeons because they know there is two ways of getting the prize. They can get lucky from RNG and get the potential chance of their weapon or they can run the trial enough to get their weapons.
This should be implied inside Vault of Stars so we can have multiple ways of getting our rings like these previous endgame trials. This would be more effective in my eyes than changing the difficulty. I understand that endgame needs to be at a certain level of difficulty to test that level of player and see if they can adapt and survive the dungeon. However you have a range of players who can do this dungeon from bare minimum running with certain groups to maxed out OP characters running this dungeon. These rings can help some players fill that gap between decent to great players and with the vendor this would help them solve that issue.
I want to always think of ways to help players grow and this would be a huge stepping stone to help players do better in all other content as well if they got their rings. I hope a lot of you agree and maybe we can some traction to see if we can get a vendor added into the game!
Thank you all,
