Ooo I have 4000 posts already...

Anyway, is there any interest in me making this into a patch?
Obviously the exact ranges are flexible.

I would be interested in seeing these changes go through, but I feel they would work best if they go hand in hand with work to better balance the artifact pool. You've got a lot of interesting ideas in the Chrono Artifacts thread, but it'd be nice if they were expanded so that there was more variety in general in the lower tiers. (A Bulwark/Reaver/Demonologist/Sun Paladin/Temporal Warden looking for a mainhand weapon in tier 1 gets Skullcleaver or nothin'.)

Well that shouldn't be too hard.

I've so far coded the tweaks to zone material levels ranges, made stores increase material tier on restock and made vault loot able to be 1 tier higher than the zone restrictions.
It was surprisingly easy.

I can't see an easy way to bias the store egos though. :(

This seems like an awesome thing to do. The possibility of getting a good T2 artifact is a real mental driver for doing the T1 dungeons throughout though even just Spellhunts would still make that something to do (Spellhunts really wouldn't hurt to be boosted to show up midgame rather than as a rare Transformative Starter).

Reducing randomness on the low end of the game also seems a good move as characters have less options to deal with it. Might be something to test as an addon for a bit though since its a widescale game balancing change?

Mark of the Spellblaze: Level range is 25-35 and the loot range is t2-t3. In the interests of having it viable to corrupt the sandworm queen heart, the level range should be changed to 15-25.


I'd go the other way here. Reason: The content is heavily weighted right now for Pre-east. The current level range pushes it as a wise thing to do on return.

Its been merged into the git version already, so it can be tested now.

I had the Wintertide Phial drop from the Half Finished Bone Giant, so that artefact still seems to be okay.
