And… when your hero level grows you get better items, so your uber item becomes quite useless or hurting your progress when you refuse to exchange it for a perk with better stats. In the end you will be forced to let such a nice perk go. That we can’t chose the item is fine. But there should be a way to transfer a perk between similar items. For example between two weapons I should be able to transfer my slowdown perk.
I don’t want to get rid of it. Let’s take for example a slowdown perk:
- It’s ver rare, only 6% chance to get it and can only be found on a weapon.
- I invested pearls to get the weapon to uber and was fortunate to get it.
- I forged the slowdown perk a dozen times to improve, so the stats are improved a lot
Then I get a weapon with much better stats.
- I go to improve that weapon to uber
- I hope for a slowdown perk. We know 94% chance not to get slowdown perk
- When it’s no slowdown perk we have a few options, using it is no option, since I want that slowdown perk at all cost.
- Melt the item down at blacksmith -> Waste of pearls
- Sell the item -> Waste of pearls
- Remove the uber perk -> Waste of gems. big chance that next perk also is not the one we want. Even more gems and pearls wasted
- When it’s a slowdown perk
- The stats are not as good as the original one -> waste thousands of pearls and wait a lot of time before the stats are same at least. Cooldown of 7 days is not your buddy at those moments.
- Hope that we don’t get a much better weapon soon before we forged the stats to previous or even better level. The story repeats itself.
I want an option to transfer an uber perk from an item to another item, even when the requirement is that the items both need to be uber. Let’s take weapon as example again
- Efforts of upgrading are not lost
- Pearls used to improve the uber aren’t wasted.
- After I forged another weapon to uber and I have two items of similar kind, enable transfer uber perks. Like I said only possible between items of same category.
- Pick the two uber items of same category. In this case two swords
- Pay some pearls and transfer. When forge succeeds the uber perks are exchanged.
For me this would be an awesome extra. Since this option is not available at the moment
- I don’t buy an item with better stats, I don’t want to lose my good perk -> Flare sells less items, so less gems spend
- When I find a better item
- I don’t improve it when I have an improved perk that I like, I just sell it or melt it down -> Also loss of pearls
- I only improve it, when I didn’t improve the perk a lot and hope to get a similar or better perk. Loss of some pearls, but worth the risk.
Add a transfer/exchange option of perks only adds win-win situation. granny sells more items and players will keep their investments in perks.
