    We have fixed the Merchants Trinket you should see the fix tomorrow July 31st. European shards will see this change tonight during your normal maintenance cycle on your shard. All existing trinkets will have their charges reset to max 5% to 90 and 10% to 40.


    We would also like to recommend you do not purchase Mythic or Advanced character tokens from anyone in game out of of game at this time. Purchasing from the Origin store is acceptable.


    Thanks everyone!

    I sure would like to see the ban hammer for those who exploited the Mythic or Advanced character tokens!

    Same here, I had been warning my guilds as I did not want any of them get burned from buying them.
    I hope the ones who did buy not knowing something was wrong, won't get punished.
    The one using the exploit and making money from it and the ones who knew the tokens was not ok, them I do not care about.

    Until then perhaps people should stop supporting them ingame by not buying from/selling to this guild...

    So what guild are we talking about? i believe there were a couple. Maybe NBK? They sure do have a lot of new members also with characters well developed. Or should we just condem any one that offered to sell one in gen chat?

    As for myself, after seeing many pieces of the puzzle, I´m pretty convinced who the guilty party is for the duped tokens on Siege.

    As for your first question, I´m not gonna name the guild here but I can´t say your guess was wrong...

    I glad I brought Freja's token from EA and not in game.
    It's very sad to see duping on Siege I still remember when Siege was new and was wiped because of duping. I do believe the wipe did hurt far more than the dupe did, a lot never started on Siege again.
    Now where Siege are getting back to life, I fear it could hurt us again, if EA choose to ban all who used this token or delete the chars.
    I would say, ban the ones who sold them and the ones in same guilds, who used them. I hope they was not able to dupe soul stone tokens too, else the damage can be really bad.

    I would hope they make correcting bugs/dupes like this the highest priority. Duping is the absolute worst thing that could happen on Siege. I sincerely hope it is nothing more than just mythic/advance char tokens at this point.

    If they can't even introduce a token to the game without exploitation, I am not convinced their claim of replacing factions because of its "bugs" (jury still out on that claim) with a new "bug-free" system holds any merit.

    I already had someone ask me to sell 25 of those mythic tokens on my vendors for them and take a percentage, glad I declined as it was suspicious from the start, but it is definitely real and here.

    Trust me on this. If they were able to dupe a mythic token then they were able to dupe legacy token. That onky makes since. On another note why would they ban the people who bought one of the duped tokens? If they did not know about them being illegal how could they prove that? How could they ban a whole guild if they did know who did it? If that person doesnt have 100 mythic tokens in there bank they wont get caught.

    wow...theres the drama I was looking for!! Too bad !! I hope the culprits are caught and burned at the steak....yum....fat ,juicy steak. Remember , a hot steak is better than a cold chop ! But seriously this is bad mojo !! This should be a top priority for the Devs and if not then we need to make some noise about this ! [IMO] V.G.
    Nothing ruins a game quicker then cheats and hacks !! Its all been downhill ever since the [and I know I'll get the spelling wrong here] Game Genie<--thats spell checked,and probably correct
