I’m honestly thinking right now about setting these 120 coils out to regen. I’ve never really wanted to forge but I’ve been having a very hard time getting some straight answers to what you might think would be simple questions. But only if you haven’t tried to mess with this ■■■■.
I’m not usually a hothead. But in over 6 months now of constantly playing this game, grinding, hanging out, building, helping friends - I’ve never been so mad at any person or part of the game as I got tonight in my simple attempt to forge a stack or copper regen bombs.
So frustrated that a couple of things happen that make me think either I’ve been so frustrated as to be forgetting actions i’ve taken, or some things are seriously broken with the centraforge. In any case I’ve a much better understanding of some things I’ve heard after tonight including a couple times when i’ve had a friend RAGE OUT and I’m thinking “well you knew what you were getting into”… like some smug idiot.
I came here from a game where hard grinding is the norm to the extent that I was sneered at as a ‘casual’ by many people and all crafting is RNG with a hard success rate of something less than 10% depending on the item. I thought i was ready for this. I’ve made a couple of simple forges and things went well enough within expectations that I just wasn’t expecting this tonight.
Time after time of the wrong boons, random boons. Boon removal not removing the boon. Boon removal TRANSMUTING the boon. Decon, decon, decon. Finally getting so excited to get the damn boon that i somehow set the forge with
Maybe it was a potential boon? it didn’t have a zero by it. Does regen even have boon levels? I don’t know.
Apparently there are so many bugs and weird tidbits of secret knowledge for the forge that I’m left to blame myself even though there’s a ton of known issues with how this thing works and in two cases where I think a bug occurred I’m not even ready to try and report it.
I’m not here for fear driven mechanics. I’m not at all interested in a gambler’s rush. I’m not interested in providing QA services for a system with no spec. I’m not honestly sure if I’ll ever pick this one up again.
WHY WILL THE FORGE SET AN ITEM WITH NO BOON???
That’s a rhetorical question, don’t answer that. This isn’t an advice thread. This is a thread for commiseration. I’d like to hear some other people’s stories, so if you are actively forging or haven’t forged yet, please refrain.
Anyone else want to share their forging horror stories?
