Either strip the currency from everyone or give a set amount for each rank 3 essence you have
As someone who's main is only missing the PvP essence, which I can't get because I'm not a fan of ranked PvP, I'm annoyed. I have no essences, becasue I never had the OPTION to get any. I could really use them for certain corruptions I need that haven't dropped, or even vials to do stuff with visions.
I did a little math, as someone who isn't receiving the currency on my main and does a lot of content. I do about ~40 M+ keys every week because i love it. Mythic+ Dungeon: 3 echoes per Keystone Leveli did 37 keys this week alonelets assume all I did was + 21s.21 x 3 = 6363 x 37 = 2,331 echoes… that’s just this week alone in keys.It’s been 9 weeks since these have been implemented.9 x 2331 = 20,979 echoes I’d have from just keysthats not counting 9 weeks of boxes (20x per key level), every week I would do a 20. so 20x20= 400. 400 x 9 = 3,600 echoes from just chestsSo I’m missing about 23,000 echoes of nya’lotha from just mythic+ keys alone.Thats not counting the heroic bosses I’ve cleared, thats not counting the 2-3 visions per week I would do… that’s not counting assaults I did weekly…feels real bad
shouldn't be a concern at all considering everyone had the same fair chance to stockpile the resources since they came out, if you didn't bother that's on you not to be punishing those who did because you did not put the effort, by the logic of punishing those who saved by increasing the price x5 might as well do the same with gold each xpac, make everything cost x10 more from vendors to punish those who stockpile gold while making x10 more gold drop. Yes it is the same analogy
What I don't get is why increase the amount gained by five but ALSO increase the cost of items by the same? If you do that the ratio of gain'd and spent is the same. So just leave it the same... or... Just upgrade the amount gamed and leave the spent the same.
just make rank 3-4 essences free from Mother if you unlocked it on ur main, so simple
This article perfectly sums up my feelings on the subject. I was frustrated because I felt like I do all my dailies/weeklies and now I am behind because of it. I have friends that already have like 20k Echoes of Nyalotha while I have 0. It isn't a good feeling and I hope that blizzard does something about it.
It's not just people who have accumulated all essences who have this issue. I have every essence at R3+ except Ripple in Space. Since I don't have the R3 on any toon then it is not available for purchase from the vendor so my character also doesn't accumulate Echoes currency.
I have 0 on my Main(coz all rank 3) + 0 on my alt for the same reason :f
It's going to amount to...1, maybe 2 corruptions someone can buy over someone who's been stockpiling...which players who have their mains likely already HAVE the corruptions they want, this also still means people who stockpiled will likely still be behind on essences, and will still have to sink echo's into those setting the playing field back at even again. I'm really not seeing the issue here. If someone did 23 M+'s a week chances are they have the corruptions they want, maybe not on the *ideal* piece but they're still well and far ahead of the average player.
"Never look a gift horse in the mouth" If you understand, you understand.
Why not just make it a factor of 10, or 20, or even 100. That would negate it entirely
Great summarization of the problem.
Ive had all the rank 3's before the patch to get them on alts even came out, so i have gotten 0 echoes of nyalotha. Was never an option for me to get them since i already had what they were used to buy.
