    Or six zillion new crafting components, or PUP attachements, or crash out HQ3 gem prices, etc.

    Far as the shuriken go, one friggin new shuriken per Assault is nothing. The Assault should be dropping at least a stack of a dozen where it's dropping one.

    My guess- S-E figured the currency cost would retard people spamming the Assault. Considering the buy rate on Imperial golds shot up considerably on Ragnarok instead, I'd say people had already realized it was "LOL LOOTZ FARM" and were proceeding to begin raping the same instance over and over again.

    Its limited by the amount of people actually on T3 (maybe 3 party's of NAs including mine on my server) and it takes almost a hour to run to and from the BC. This update was completely not needed.....

    It took you an hour to go from Nashmau -> Ruins -> Mire -> Reef -> Assault -> Warp II to Nashmau? For that matter, how does the number of real players limit an RMT party anyway?

    Fuck SE.

    Aside from the Zerehs, the drops from the new Ashtu Talif assaults aren't worth shit.

    Most pointless nerf ever.

    If the people going 0/10-15 are any indication, instead of a time-consuming process to gear up a party worth of people with Baby Haidate, it's going to be a ludicrously long process.

    Too bad they couldn't actually have a good thing in their game for once.

    What an amazingly pointless update. Put in armor because the RMT are cock-blocking people from Byakko then cock-block them from the fight that drops that armor.

    I wish I could figure out what is going through SE's mind at times... I figured ok fine they made a replacement item (To B-pants), fine they made it rare but managable to get (You could do the BC as many times as you wanted in a day correct?) And now they even screw that up?

    So in other words SE wants to ensure the RMT stay in business up in Sky. Maybe they made the change once the CGF found out about this piece of equipment dropping in the ISNM and sent in enough complaints that SE made this retarded update.

    I think Sony and SE are having lunch on a daily basis and comparing notes.

    this works out in our favor

    since one of the drops from this were cerb hide we were worried about losing our monopoly on that since we own cerberus pretty much 100%

    with this nerf it limits that amount of ??? boxes that can contain cerb hides that are bought into the economy

    thx SE

    Obviously, none of you run a business that people pay for per month.

    Of course it makes sense from a business standpoint. Don't think anyone was disputing that.
