    For ME: The most important issue to patch is the broken mod viewer. Yours?

    Sure, the Chat is broken. That's not a 'patch', that's an overhaul of a entire module.

    The Mod Viewer is the one issue of code they broke that most affects my stage of gameplay at E-43XX and E-14XX, and it's currently standing in my way of equipment development. Much dusting and cleaning in the inventory needs to be done, and without the viewer much valuable mod/weaponry will be lost because we just can't make better decisions with no info.

    As it now stands the last patch made a fair amount of older equipment obsolete or less than desirable when comparing utility of old weapons to new. But much of the new weaponry since the patch still has troll-rolls, and lost nano in spite of the greatly ballyhooed revamp.

    ** To be honest, I assume the lost nano affects the lower EGO players, and is a sop to the higher EGO players. It's the gesture Trick made to show 'Higher EGOS' that there is a benefit to advancement.

    The cost of blue mods combined with the scarcity of certain syns in particular mod configs makes the situation more annoying in that I've got a lot of syn'd mods on older weapons that are now made less than desirable with the new patch. So just blindly scraping stuff leads to way too many wasted mods that are already in our possession


    I can't make an informed decision when breaking modded equipment down. If I had put mismatched syn on a weapon for utility at the moment, and now I want to re-prioritize mods and syn packages, just breaking stuff down means that a lot of modded equipment that is fine as is is destroyed with little reason. Sometimes I just needed something to work at the time regardless of the syn, or in many cases I just needed 2 matched mods to get the part of the syn I needed, and now that I have the luxury of more resources I want to reallocate stuff.

    The fact that the individual bonus's in the modded section do NOT light up individually with respect to the number of installed mods of correct syn is an annoying kick in the nuts, too.

    Whats the single most important issue of broken code affecting your game play?
    These are just my opinions.
    I have lots of opinions.
    Some of them, on occasion, people have agreed with.
    I do not trust those people.

    someone on the bug forum mentioned a workaround for this. if you want to see the synergy text again, salvage all the mods from the weapon, after it is done, logout, go back in and you should see the text again.
    bad part is the weapon will be lost, unless you didn't need it in the first place.
    so now i have to keep track on what mod is on what weapon manually so i know what it really is.
    hopefully they fix it soon.

    Just to add to your statement, not to correct you:

    I put 2 Assassin mods on an Assassin weapon.
    I put an Assassin mod and a QM mod on another Assassin weapon.
    3 weeks and a troll-roll patch goes by.
    It'd be helpful to know which one to break down for scrap and which to keep.

    In some cases the weapons might have brl/mag on one, stock/scope on other. Makes more sense to break down one to combine with other. If the rolls are different, it matters which one I break down.

    In other cases, I want to build a new Assassin weapon with better rolls, which one of the two do I sacrifice?

    In a 3rd case, I dont even know anymore IF either HAS Assassin mods on them.

    Nupe, I don't know either.
    Until it's too late.
    These are assets in my inventory. WHY TF can I not SEE my assets?
    These are just my opinions.

    I've been using the retrieve mod option since this went all crazy on us. The old oranges are going to sit until they give us something, but the purples will just need to be sacrificed in the interim.

    Until I get a new purple syphon Vbi Ar, with rolls I like., my old one stays! Most of the other guns went to people who liked the self-revive rolls, and traded me new guns for my old ones.

    Phantom damage really burns me up sometimes.
    I get through some heroic stuff with a couple of health bars left and from out of nowhere, really NOWHERE, I start taking damage.Sometimes with nano as well.
    No mobs around to hide from or kill just a disappearing health bar and my toon on fire or syphon blasted to bits.
    WTF

    There are a lot of them at times.
    The only thing you can do is vacate the AO ASAP, and come back later.

    Given time and patience you might be able to take him out with a launcher and just spraying, but it's rarely worth the trouble unless it got personal.

    Trick actually said in the live stream 2 weeks ago that it wasn't a cosmetic error and the synergies are disappearing. I'd be willing to bet that when the problem does get fixed you won't get your current ones back.

    I thought they said it was cosmetic, so clearly I could be miffed and vexed at this news.

    I was under the impression that many are having good luck with the above mentioned 'break down/sell/log/buy' method, tho it seems convoluted, and didn't work reliably for me on several of the weapons that I know had at least a syn on them.
