    From last weeks patch notes.
    Today's patch brings with it an overhaul of the village loot, the addition of the remaining q6 gems and some tweaks to named mobs. "We hope to follow this up next week with an overhaul to the Trade Routes loot tables."

    Is this still being worked on for this week?

    Hopefully this week, I had to take some time to upgrade Trade Routes to take into account Equipment Tier and some other things that weren't possible currently for loot.

    If rewards are based off equipment tier you need to make it so people can't take turns wearing a tier 6 bag for the turn in.

    Yes there's a few abuses possible so we'll look at some solutions to prevent temp/shared high end gearing to bump up the rewards without the full risk.

    So the try harder just gonna camp the turn-in’s like before, sweet no thanks. Would be nice if you could make the turn in point some random ass place that can’t be camped

    Just hang out with rmr we will be providing convoy security and gate guards during trade routes free of charge. But only if you have atleast one mahirim within your party.

    I have a feeling the rewards will be deposited into your bank. Not sure how I feel about that.

    This is what I dislike as well. The concept of trade routes is fun and I do enjoy getting pvp but if you get spotted traveling with a pack, or kill someone who sees the pack, their buddies can just camp the endpoint and there is nothing you can do about it. On top of that, you get fewer rewards for slow trips so you kinda have no choice but to go as fast as possible. I also suspect that this will be all zergs, just like villages, so it puts solo and duo players in a bad spot.

    What others said. Loot change is just a bandaid fix. The system needs an overhaul with multiple turn in points.

    I mostly agree but I do think a loot table update would be a good start as the 100 timber type rewards feel like a kick in the balls. I wonder if it would be possible to have new endpoints added in this patch, that would be a huge improvement. Even two or three endpoints per trade route would suffice.
