    I don't want to do something I'm not supposed to be doing.

    Is it ok for us to make relic frags with higher level ingots and hammers or do you consider it a bad thing? We've been able to lower the price for the common persons equipment quite a bit on Atlantic with this method.

    Thanks if you can comment or if you can't comment.

    Have a Great Day everyone!

    Making relic fragments is legal.

    If it were illegal they wouldn't be putting so much effort into trying to stop it. :mf_prop:

    None of you folks has any more idea than I do if its legal. This isn't a poll and it doesn't much matter what anyone in the playerbase thinks. It matters what ea thinks.

    They've already stopped us twice from making relics completely. They obviously didn't want us doing it that way. Now I ask again, is this a legal way to make relics or not? I could snipe at people here too, its always easy to make fun. What I'd like is a straight answer to this reasonable question from someone at ea.

    Making relic frags from the odd craftable item is legal, as you don't have to break any rules in doing so, as in using an exploit. Even then it is not cheap, particularly when you have to use pefect emeralds, which often sell at 30k each, plus the cost of a bronze runic and high-end ingots, so if you have to buy these usables and use an ancient hammer to make them the cost per frag may be close to 50k each.

    If, like myself, you already had a bunch of such usables in stock then you can end up making a limited number of frags for nothing, but in the past I have obviously put in the time to get the ingredients so they are not exactly free.

    They stopped many arifacts from giving a relic (like violet courage, for example), and THAT is plain wrong.

    There is not a single reason left to hunt level 6 treasure maps now, it's a whole part of the game going down the drain.
     

  11. Agreed. Imbuing was designed to level the playing field. Relics should be more cheaply and easily available. Afterall, they're consumed on imbuing failure.

    erm, sorry, I have played around with it for a long time now and have found at least 2 ways to still make relics 100% without using anything else than some normal gems, some residue, a little essence and colored ingots.
    No runics or special gems needed at all.
    I am also not sure if this is intended or not but since it is not so hard to figure out how to do it if you experiment I guess it was intentional.
    I could be wrong though....
