    I am guessing. That the dungeon crystals will be the new way to gain in ALL of the virtues. When this system is rolled out to all the other dungeons. Gain crystals in the opposing dungeon to gain in the virtue.

    Nope, they are used to summon the "boss" creature for a given level (10 crystals per level). The boss creature spawns somewhere in the level and you have a set amount of time to find and defeat it. The boss is of a challenge level equal to the monsters in the next level down. You use the crystals by double clicking them to gain "Shame points", when you have 10xlvl of said points you can summon the boss. The points are in your Loyalty Rating menu.

    Why do you think they are planning on adding a new way to gain in virtues?

    Since I can't provide specific examples at the moment I will have to say. Just a hunch. I can't provide examples because I don't remember what was said or how it was said that typed me towards this line of thinking.

    Same hunch I got when treasure chests were updated and I turned to someone and said "Sea fairing expansion next" and low and behold we got High Seas.

    I just see little things being touched on to. New way to gain in compassion was added. Anti virtue dungeons being updated.

    Really it is just a shot in the dark but something tells me I may have hit the mark or atleast close to it.

    Does your crystal total go down when you summon a boss? I don't have enough yet to find out.

    Yes, when you summon a boss it takes 10, 20, or 30 off your total depending on the level summoned.

    Interesting theory I must admit. Would seem fairly plausible. I think that the idea of the specific crystals being tied into the virtue system would go over very well with the players. Heck may be a simple solution to a lot of the complaints about the current virtue system. Not sure if I would want them to completely replace the system, which could very well be the reason that they would not be thinking of going in that direction with the system. You can be certain that at that point anti-virtue dungeon crystals would be a main target for farming. Then again could create a nice gold sink.

    Of course the champion drop rate for their special items is low as it is, so there is already a value. I am not sure if they are planning on adding this in. It would be nice. I would say the best bet is to wait and see what the next dungeon that gets the revamp is. That would probably be the best way to figure out what it will do. I would say the odds are better if they tackle another anti-virtue dungeon then if they take on Wind or Fire or Ice.
