This is not the greatest gear in the world, this is just a-tribute (issue)

So I finally save up enough resources to level up 2 Red Warlord items
Should be a great moment to enjoy a rewarding payoff for all the effort to get here

And then I get the Lightstrike attribute on both gear pieces!


It’s a legendary upgrade (for some people it could be a mythic upgrade) and you get a random attribute - that can’t be changed
Feels like it should be MUCH better than that for the resources required

The feeling of dissatisfaction with this unrewarding outcome would only be amplified if it was evolved to Mythic due to the increased resource costs to do so
When coupled with the abysmal salvage rates meaning you can not just scape it and use say 80% of the resources to try again after more gathering of resources
You really should get all the glyphs and relics spent on an item to get it to legendary or mythic when you salvage it - You’ve earned a legendary piece of gear, being able to “swap it” with a salvage and rebuild should be an affordable option

I know I am not the only one with this issue - so who else has mismatched gear pieces they want to show off?

My first-ever Mythic item and what do I get… An ice-based attribute on a Light-based weapon, LOL!

This is the abomination I’ve got yesterday (also my first mythic, now I want my t4 relics and glyphs back)

This is certainly a critical issue but its been mentioned so many times before, including by the OP. At this point we might as well just form a support group called AA (Attributes Anonymous).

Here’s a CX response to one of many threads just like it:

This was in a thread, referencing another thread with all the same feedback that we have been continually giving on this topic since summer of last year. It would be nice if we could actually get some sort of forward-looking response about this issue which is killing the joy of so many when they invest hard-won resources just to get the equivalent of a knee to the groin when upgrading gear.

A guild member provided this unfortunate Mythic upgrade outcome

I have had many of these useless attribute combinaions. In some cases I already salvaged, in other cases I am still keeping them but not upgrading.
So I am still waiting for solution to change them.



. There are many other gear, especially where Pact and Strike Color dont fit.
At the beginning and mid of game this doesnt count so much because we have to use what we can get, means playing with multicolor gear and spells. But the more we upgrade to get stronger the game requires monocolor upgrades. Otherwise lvl100 fights are nearly impossible.
So I personally think the best is not to restrict the attributes to fit the the color but to let the player modify it, maybe by a follower.

Exception: Most useless attribute is Rich. Should be eliminated.

@Jeto Any comments, thoughts or information you can add to this thread?

The last mention of this just for reference:

Yep, but hopefully we get an update after 2 months… :slight_smile:
Also we have a cool new thread title for the issue, so there’s that

Why, oh why, do I keep banging my head against this wall?!?

It is not a good feeling to have found the gear item you want, in the colour you want, with a decent first random attribute - only to upgrade with all the required resources, to legendary (or mythic) and then get an outcome like this
