Would have been nice if this was part of the update:
Korthia Gear Vendor
Developer’s note: Obtaining Korthia gear that is slot and stat desired is proving to be too elusive for some players. We’ll be introducing a Vendor that will sell slot specific account bound Korthia gear costing 750 Cataloged Research.
The Archivists’ Codex Reputation
A 100% increase gain to The Archivists’ Codex Reputation.
Developer’s note: The Archivists’ Codex Reputation is proving to be too time consuming for the targeted player base that rely on Korthia gear and upgrade abilities. While we just can not remove the system that would allow anyone to upgrade to the maximum level, we intend to essentially double the reputation gains from item turn-ins and other sources of reputation gains.
We thank you for the feedback on these systems and while they did look perfect on “paper” in the real world these systems were too aggressive slowing down gear acquisition and upgrading.
Wouldn’t that have been a great patch-note…
