    Are we going to see the new loot generator also work for Treasure maps and Fished up chests ?

    Does this mean that the weared luck of the Treasure hunter/Fisherman will be a factor in the quality of loot like it is in Shame and Wrong ?

    I wouldn't mind a whole chest full of Relic Fragment/Enchanted Essence quality loot. Just don't amp up the guardians like they've been done in Shame/Wrong. ;)

    Personally I am not counting on it. Do you remember how long it took for the chests to get this far?

    Would be nice...

    But as Specialshoes pointed out we t-hunters had to wait this long to get an upgrade on our t-hunting. However I think we might get luckier this time as the team really seems to be doing great at updating the dungeons. Perhaps after they're all done with the dungeon they will look at t-maps.

    It's been stated that eventually the whole game will have this sort of loot generated items.

    So, yes based on that, T-maps & SoS chest's will have the new loot.

    Though i know people will disagree with this, but I think Existing T-maps & SoS's should remain the normal loot, and only newly obtained T-Maps/SoS' generate the new stuff. Otherwise people (like me,) who have about 500+ lvl 5-6 T-maps will have all of it, as soon as it goes live.

    Hopefully (like Shame & Wrong) certain things are only obtainable in these specific places, (whetstone - Shame / Assassin's Edge Weapons - Wrong + some stealables) things like this keep area's useful.

    I'm sure the T-maps will be alot harder than they are currently, but if the loot is worth it, people won't be complaining.

    The new type of loot is replacing the older loot. That is, the older type of loot is becoming useless and not worth the time.

    Not upgrading the loot generator for all type of Maps/Soses, including existing ones, will make all of them worthless. Plain and simple.

    This cannot be, IMHO.

    If the new Loot Table generator will also upgrade Treasure maps and Fishing chests then this has to be for all of them, whether existing ones or newly spawned.....
