    Keycode Cost, Rebalanced Rewards, and Drop Rates O My!

    *To balance the accrual rate of Keycodes, we have increased the purchase cost of Keycodes on Lock Box Merchants, rebalanced the rewards gained from score in events, and updated equipment drop rates from enemies

    I have a feeling this will negatively impact players in an attempt to drive them to the bit store. What are your thought? Lets speculate until we experience it first hand.

    Every update so far has been to "entice" (read push) People to the bit store.

    This change will be no different. /shrug

    Seriously start to get hate feeling towards TRION atm.

    I used to respect them quite a bit during the early days with RIFT.

    Oh how the mightly have fallen and sunk so low!

    This game used to be good around launch. Sure some issues and bugs and dissapointment of the small map, but it was a good game overall. Focussed on horizontal progression and pretty balanced.

    Now they turned it into a stupid vertical progression themepark cash grab!

    Well considering I can live without those shotguns & grenades I usually get from Lockboxes, nothing will "entice" me to go to the bitstore lol

    From what I read about Rift's free to pay to play, this is about par for the course.

    I'm seeing the same thing, with a Nerf to loot drop rates and quality to make us buy lockboxes, which now cost more, and we will get less keys naturally by decreasing the "rewards" of forge and keys from events.

    I've bought over a thousand lock boxes using keys, i can't think of any weapon I use regularly from one. They could decrease it to one key per year and it wouldn't affect me. Anyone who buys a lock box from the bit store has more money than brains.

    Making Keycodes cost more... so what, 50 - 100% on the prices. 15 - 20k Ark Salvage and 7.5k - 10k scrip for 10 keys. Sounds about right considering their need to have us go to the bit store for every little thing. As for adjusting loot rate and the drops on bosses, this means less keys from doing stuff. I suspect that will get nerfed about 20%, maybe 30%. Nothing much when you look at a single arkfall, but when you are building for 64 or 75 for a purple box... it adds up. However I think the boxes will cost the same number of keycodes. They said they are increasing how much keycodes cost on lockboxes. Nothing about increasing lockbox prices. So shuuuuush, you'll give them ideas!
