    yea they are like snow white one charge fragments. void essence and crystal granules i believe, to make the crystal granules you need the big green crystals you get from Shimmering Effusion. kinda hope they would add another way to get the green crystals other than that peerless

    You have to kill the peerless to get the crystals or do they just spawn down there?

    I would buy SA ONLY for soulstone frags, but if it involves killing perlesses, I won't, plain and simple.

    They have come up with some pretty creative ways to make what would be considered high end ingredients available. I have not seen a fix for this particular bottle neck yet and I'm interested to see what, if anything, they come up with.

    Why is getting crystals from a peerless an issue? Soulstones are incredibly useful to any type of character. Why does everything need to be easy? I support imbueing 100%, because it levels the playing field. Soulstones on the other hand, should be harder to obtain. They are a luxery to have and previously were expensive in rl money.
     
  7. Part of the problem with this is that the peerless isnt exactly the simplest ones to do, not that it should be, but for all the work you go through getting the keys and then doing the peerless you only get 1 shimmering crystal per time you do it. The cost of the soulstone frag once done wouldnt be worth it considering the insurance you could go through trying to get the crystals.

    and prior to that they were free with unlimited charges with your pre order.

    But no I personally don't have any problem if they stay this course.

    Well, yeah, but there is other stuff too. Essence is still the most expensive peerless reg by a long shot.
     
  10. I can farm essence easier than I can get the shimmering crystals :(

    Right, no, I believe it. That's why I'm wondering if an alternate avenue might be in the works. But thinking along the lines of the academic books maybe not.
     
  12. those are hard to get too... i finally paid 2mil for a set of the books cause everytime I went to get them, they were already gone.

    It's an issue because I can't kill peerlesses.
    That is all.

    Not everyone has a sampire loaded with the most expensive artifacts in the game. In other words, not everyone can kill peerless.

    Also, I heard something about those crystals being a groundspawn in that dungeon. Never been there, so I don't know personally.

    It would be really cool to have confirmation on this, because if it's a ground spawn and doesn't require to kill bosses, it becomes more realistic.

    No, they are not groundspawn. The items needed to make gorgon lenses are groundspawn. Every shimmering effusion has 1.

    Couldn't they add it to other places (not easy places) but something other then peerless? How boring would that get to have to constantly do the same thing for one resource?

    They are fine.

    Want an unlimited use one? Buy one from the code store or use a vet-reward option on one.

    Can't kill a peerless by yourself? Then get a group of people to help you. We shouldn't be seeing stock-loads of these craftable soulstones anyways. They weren't intended to be an easily craftable/obtainable item anyways.

    I may be mistaken but on Cats one of the larger guilds tried to do the shimmering effusion recently and isn't the spawn or something with the keys broken? For some reason they were not able to get to the peerless.

    A crafting material locked behind an event that is broken is pretty lame if spawning the peerless is really broken.

    I agree. Should not be super easy too attain. Then again when I have played the game for 10+ years and dropped 250m or more on buying SS tokens...did I not work somewhere along the way too attain them?


    Yes though...best idea is too keep in bank, but I used them so much on so many diff chars that I left in house for easier use...O well...live and learn. See if can find some for sale in game for gold. Dnot like paying more than monthly subscribtion for stuff.

    Me and a few friends kill most peerless with our tamers...so dont need a fully decked out sampire. A good combination of mages, tamers, and archers work well as well. So if nothing else go make a couple friends who play around same time as you and go try a couple.
