Somewhat unrelated question, but related in the sense they are both dead currencies, but are there any plans to do anything about the lack of things to use food on?
Even if people had all the crystals in the world to level 50 all followers, there is currently no infinite food sink in the game due to the guild food offer only having so many claims.
It is making it so opening chests is extremely bad value right now since 100% of all the food does nothing due to no infinite food sink in the game.
This topic has more info on it:
Another reason few will stick with the game.
