    In an effort to see where the community as a whole stands on this issue.

    Apparently my question was too long!

    Below is the question in full:

    Do you support a significantly increased drop rate of all artifacts, imbuing ingredients & mining gems?

    These include:

    Doom Artifacts
    ML Artifacts
    Minor Artifacts
    Tokuno Artifacts
    Replica's

    Forms [Original, Cursed, Brittle or some combination thereof] may be discussed or voted upon at a later date if necessary.

    Before I vote, is this in some way to prove a shady point to the DEVs? Aka taking Faction Arties out?

    Just curious.

    I think its a way to isolate where we as a community stand on each issue. Instead of pushing for a whole bunch of changes perhaps push forward with the few that we are 100% on.

    My poll didn't push a whole bunch and included what Kat has here. =)

    Just saying, mine had this polls' option on its own as well. Do you just not like seeing Faction Arties in the poll? :grouphug:

    Of course I don't mind "seeing" faction arties in the poll, but you and I both know my position on those and I didn't see an option to remove them in your poll. :) I did vote, however.

    Anyway... All I did here was create a poll on the increased artie and ingredients drop rate as Crunch asked me to.

    I think some things need to be tweaked.

    All Artifacts - Agree
    Imbue Ingredients - Some do, like Arcanic Runstones etc. So tough to get. But things like essences (easy now), and boura pelts etc. Nah
    Mining Gems - Leave the big gems low, but increase reg gems.

    I agree that regular gems should probably drop more and/or NPC prices should be reduced to that of normal shards. The reason I added mining gems to the increased drop rate is because there are a number of items and properties that call for them. If our goal is bringing the cost to equip into an acceptable range, I feel those gems should be included.

    They are used in imbuing and they are used to make craftable artifacts as well.

    Having said all that, if the majority agrees with this poll, the drop rate on the mining gems could certainly be open to discussion. Personally, I am for increasing the drop rate, but not so much that they would be worthless.

    Can someone supply info on the current value of each gem?

    I don't see need to increase Imbuing stuff and mining gems. Essences are easy enough now thanks to treasure chests. I can understand other ingreds are harder to get but just doesn't feel right.

    I'd like to see the DEVs add different imbuing ingreds/peerless loot to chests but that would be for all shards, not just siege.

    As I have no real opinion over artifacts, as I don't use them for Treasure Hunting, I can't really vote.

    There is next to nothing in treasure cheasts now. You used to get quiet a bit in a t-chest, or para chest, but now your lucky to get 2 diff gems inside.

    Its difficult to raise an argument in any situation when you have so many variables. Your poll is good, but offers too many options. If you simplify the options, it makes your results even more telling. Thus allowing, hopefully, ease of understanding on said topics.

    I did about 20 chests taking everything out and unraveling. Complete waste of time. I grab arties, unique items, regs, and gems. T-Map loot needs reworking, but that isnt the topic so, I wont push that.

    I vote no for the simple reason that this will give the devs the misconception that this is in fact a cure for the insured faction arties. It is not, faction arties needs to go. Hell if anything i say give arties an even slower drop rate.

    Cheapy - I agree with you that faction arties need to go, but this is a separate issue. An increased arty/ingredient drop stands on its own merit with or without faction arties in play, to resolve the cost to equip issue. Without insurance, the cost to equip has to be addressed if this shard is going to survive.
