Well I haven't written one of these in a while, and while my opinion on the value of DLC has not changed, I am happy with a change the devs have made.

The Faction Vendors now grant oranges!

I know they are untradeable but what a way to get folks to grind out rep!

I first pulled an Orange Frontier Battle Rifle from the Top Notch Faction vendor...but the biggest thing came from the Soleptor vendor at the Crater:

I pulled an Orange Votan Bolter (electric) with the SCAVENGER synergy!!

Yep, Scavenger Sniper Rifles, and in Orange no less with double damage rolls...I am floored.

This is crazy! Before long Arsenic will show up in this thread saying good job about something... then it really will be The End Of The World As We Know It!

Oh stop being overly dramatic, If we didn't enjoy the game we wouldn't be on these forums. I just don't want people to make the same mistakes I have.

So here it is - been waiting since I pulled my first blue Scavenger Sniper Rifle mod back in April last year to see one of these weapons (Sorry for the crap pics - taken off my TV):

Not a bad little AR, too bad it's a Heavy or I might actually use it.

Very nice pull man hope it rolls dmg for you.

Of course it should be noted that I have not purchased the DLC...so this isn't so much a positive note on the DLC so much as it is a positive note on the patch accompanying the DLC.

Yay Patch Accompanying the DLC!

Yeah a 15% DMG increase on a VOT Bolter is pretty nice I'd have to say - and my Bolt Action Snipers aren't maxed in level - so I don't have the extra 5% DMG boost from Level 20 - and 1455, not bad.

I'd like to point out, it will only increase the frequency and not the rarity... :rolleyes:

This change should been made long ago - oranges from Faction Vendors I mean - I had quite a bit of faction cred saved up at all faction vendors (except Echelon of course - lol) so I went on a box spending spree and got these two oranges...

Now would I grind Faction Rep to get chances at Orange faction weapons of my favorite type? You bet. Even if they aren't tradeable.

A lot of other folks I know would have done it too...

Market
02-04-2014, 10:31 PM
You can count me as one of them! lol

I, too, saved up a bunch of Rep for doing this. Mostly ended up with the loadout synergy items, and no OJ's yet, but as has been said here, a good reason to grind that Rep!

Yep just more ark salvage really - but still nice to know that 10 Months after the game's release they finally add in this weapon.

I remember week 2: folks were messaging everywhere looking for a Scavenger Sniper Rifle of any color to match their full Scavenger Sniper Rifle Mod set - there were a dizzying number of threads - accusations were thrown about - denials were made...

The more things change eh?

Goodbye old friend!

We didn't get clothing either, one suit that's it...the other incursions seem bugged (at least for me) not seen another other than bloodbath.

Patch, not DLC, this should have been. Trion waits too often to put good fixes into DLC so that their DLC doesn't seem so flat and boring. Chat should have come out before the DLC too. The management direction for this crap is horrible.

Though I will say that I like that change. You should, however, change the title to read, "A Positive Note on DLC 3 Patch Content."

Very nice Bolter, my favorite sniper by the way.

I pulled an orange Votan Fragger with nano-executioner back pack synergy. Now I have to see how that works.

Zugo
02-05-2014, 09:33 AM
Nano effects have been changed/augmented. Radiation and Biologic now have a small DoT effect like electricity has.

Also see nano effects on guns that didn't have them before. Pulled a electric Cyclone, wonder if that one guy on here has been managed to find his dream gun.

Yeah, I seem to be getting an orange every 8 or 10 faction vendor boxes, which is turning into a good reason to faction grind. (And I'll see your orange scavenger bolter and raise an orange scavenger pulser from the same vendor. Sweeeet.)

02-05-2014, 10:16 AM
did your pulser have a nano?

OK now I'm excited, a little disappointed last night as incursions were so packed, I was lucky to find a hostile to even aim at much less kill with so many on for the little time I had. But now I have a new goal for tonight, and more time. I have 4 toons all have 800-1000 rep points in everything but echelon. Watch my scrip go. 32+ weapon crates per vendor OR 64+ mod crates OH the chills........................

Albion
02-05-2014, 11:07 AM
I blew through all my saved up rep (almost 1000 points in each of the three) and got only one orange item. Funny thing, it was the same Votan Bolter mentioned here, only mine was not Scavenger, it was Nano-Mastery synergy. The rolls on it weren't that great either, so I scrapped it. As far as mods go, only bought a few of those, and got just 1 T4 mod, a reserve chamber IV.

It does seem like a good thing to have these in the game now, but the real issue remains that we want proper T4 mods, not these useless faction synergy mods. And it takes a long time to grind out 100 rep for another shot at one of these vendor boxes, so the thrill will wear off quick.

I like the modified faction vendors, tier four mods and reasonable boxes. Its pretty much the only positive addition we have had in months. There are rumours that chat is workable as well but I am too hermit like to care. As long as they have not broken anything else in making these improvements we can mark them up for a plus, rare event round here.

Agreed on the chat comment, especially since many people could care less about it.

The modified faction vendors I'm liking that as it seems to be more reason to keep doing dailies and weeklies. Otherwise, I would have long since stopped.

Very nice weapon sir, but unlike the Scavenger Sniper Rifle - there were Scavenger Pulsers in the game for a long while.

The Scavenger Sniper Rifles never existed until now in any color, much less orange. :)

Guess that means my scavenger sniper mods can now be used. Now I just need to get a scavenger sniper to get those mod out of my inventory so I have a little more space!

I was spending all my Soleptor rep points last night. I got a blue Votan bolter and a full set of mods for it two purples and two blues.
