    -Edit its even worse than I thought see RawrGasms post below

    Mob dropped weapons in certain banks including rank 50/60s lost their prefixes and became full durability during the server crashes/ rollbacks

    THESE NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN DROPPING AT ALL IN THE FIRST PLACE

    It doesn't matter if BPG nerfed most of them and lowered their drop rates. People should have to craft basically everything including farming weapons like rank 40s rather than use mob dropped r50/60s for that.

    It hurts the economy and crafters and vastly increases the early game power gap (first impression during launch month= most important!)

    Threads were made about this since day 1 and it could have been avoided now it's caused significant damage and imbalance and no matter which route you take to fix it you're going to piss a group of people off

    Log out and log back in all mob drop items go to full dura, in your inventory or your bank, if this doesnt get fixed or reverted people already have banks full of .82 JB etc

    100% agree with OP. Nothing over R30 should be dropping, especially from mobs that can be farmed with a day 1 or 2 character.

    Between this and the server crashes I'm starting to think BPG really should have done a beta for this game

    I told @Neilk about this yesterday. It was something regarding the moving between persistent databases that made it happen. He can maybe fill in. It's not suppose to happen again.

    BPG best be able to spot the ones who exploited this heavily with their persistence system and undo some of the damage.

    lol

    They should just remove all mob dropped items over R30 and end the economy breaking problem.

    Yup thats the only solution I see, remove all mob dropped items over r30 from both banks and Mob loot tables

    It might annoy a few people but its the fairest way to do things and whats best in BOTH the short and the long run

    No. Fuck you.

    Mob dropped weapons are the only way i can stay even remotely competitive in gear. Most crafted r40s are better than the few r50s ive gotten anyway. In just 1 week. the best mob drop ive seen is a r60 gs which was the same as a crafted r40. Basically by the time i could get r50s and the occasional r60s, craftters are making better gear anyway.

    To put it bluntly, I dont want to go to crafters. Im not a fan of anything close to a purely player driven economy. not in a game with alignment at least. Everything should be available out there somewhere imo. For RoA I'm looking to play solo, or in a small group with a couple other folks most of the time. We dont have the numbers to fuel a high end crafter any time soon. being able to farm decent pvp gear off mobs lets us have an even fight.

    Im already pissed they nerfed the high rank weapon drops at launch. Almost No1 used mob dropped shit even a month into the game in previous launches. crafted shit is already better.

    Fuck off with your carebear get friendly with crafters bullshit. why should i have to spend my gametime doing what i dont want to do? Its not like im getting an actal advantage, the gear is still shittier than crafted but no thats not enough.

    Always some cunts who want everyone to only play their way.

    Fix the ACTUAL bug where mob dropped shit gets its dura changed and leave the damn drops alone.

    I like the idea of hunting and finding decent gear that is usable.

    and thanks for the tip on the repair bug

    This is an MMO crafters need a place. Currently they don't. You can just farm banks of gear that's really bad for this game. Pretty much negates crafters all together. If anything drop broken gear/weapons and add salvage skill.

    Again, the rich get richer. For DF to succeed it needs to avoid all systems of balance that lead to that. There's a reason people liked UW other than the gameplay (which wasn't as good as DF)

    Also mob drop PVE guy, that's a nice speech, but you do know it is possible to buy weapons for gold and very possible to level crafting solo.

    I think mob drop weapons should stay ingame but if R50/60 have been converted to full dura .... cringe
