    A few more hotfixes and they might be worth doing

    We need more recipes, materials, and items added to the game. There is WAY too much reliance on the same few items on so many loot tables. This is at the core of what's wrong with the game imo.

    Although I agree with this, for the time being these should be way more profitable than a VCP. You spend 45 minutes of your time, plus 10K, plus a gear bag - when they implement that and the chance to get jumped and you can only do them what 2 or 3 times a day if you were up 24 hours. These should give out great loot.

    If you took longer than 60 minutes the loot starts getting worse fast which is likely since you took a boat and the loot looks like a lower possible roll. How many containers did you get?

    Isn’t 60 minutes on a raft the lazy mans route? How do you know you wouldn’t get the good stuff with a better time? I’ve seen a couple bad rewards so far but the sample size is low.

    Also the point billy lee keeps harping on is right, we need different rewards for different activities. Ideally wood and iron would only come from gathering and enchant mats would only come from mobs to keep these things valuable for a wide variety of players. Obviously we aren’t there right now but it’s worth keeping in mind as they begin their piecemeal localization project.

    The container loot is different based on timer? The container loot was trash as well as the initial turn in.

    Literally NO ONE does the trade route for iron, wood, cloth and leather. If anyone wanted any of those materials they could harvest 10k of each in the sametime it takes to run that route and get 100 of each.

    I agree, for sure. Long distance traveling is perhaps the most boring aspect of the game, so the reward has to be fun every time or many people will never do them.

    Yeah, that's why new recipes need to be added. Elemental arrows are a good example, they gave new value to essences and enhanced gameplay (in theory anyway, I know they are a little screwed up at the moment). A lot of materials are basically obsolete, like apples, carrots, archangelica. Every single material needs to be at least a little bit important long term. Carrots are the perfect example, they have one recipe iirc and it is only used for leveling cooking and it's not the optimal recipe in terms of cost, so carrots are essentially useless. A lot of these materials should be used in large batches somehow, like two dozen carrots at a time, or turning bulk fish into fish oil, things like that.

    I regret ever requesting trade route loot upgrade.

    Maybe for you, but all that other stuff is worth nothing to me.

    I want my 10k and my 45 minutes back

    I do like it that the loot is in containers, pretty awesome that you can sell them that way and people can gamble on them. I think there is a lot of potential with stuff like that.

    Lol can literally do the Wolf route in like 25 minutes. Granted it's intimidating to ride through Wolf Lands and if you're scared of that because you know Redmoon Reserves lives there then you'll definitely be scared to ride through Center map cause that's where we farm too. Send me a message on the forums or in game if you want to learn how to trade route.

    Even then, gaining 25k in 45 minutes assuming you don't have people camping the end point is nothing compared to the 75k+ you can get farming a variety of mob spawns in the same amount of time.
