  1. The True Stormbringer Soul can indeed be salvaged for 3 vials, but the pet aura that goes with the package cannot be salvaged for anything. You'd think they'd let you salvage the pet aura for some pet packs, but no you cannot.
  2. Dellecross, it looks to me as though your problems with progression lies not in gear or knowledge of mechanics, but in execution; something you yourself have admitted countless times by now. As such, I believe you'd progress further if you would just slow down and return to basics. More specifically, you must let go the urgency you probably have in trying to dps as hard and fast as you can, even when it's not appropriate to do so. I suggest you spend at least a few attempts where you purposely don't attack and simply hold block while you watch and observe what the bosses are doing to you and w
  3. As someone that actually plays earth summoner from time to time, instead of just reading up their badge effects, I can confirm that you can and indeed are supposed to use sunflower + LMB simultaneously with your VT badge rotation. Like Suphu said, Thorn Strike/Briar Patch do not share a global cooldown with Sunflower/Rosethorn. For a mid-tier earth summoner with full VT gear, completely forgoing sunflower may not hurt their overall DPS quite as much as other classes, but you'd look very silly to anyone else that understands how end game earth summoner works.
  4. Perhaps we should be allowed to customize our bangle "tails" by using chromatic threads in some fashion. In fact, special weapon skins, especially the ones introduced via trove/F10, would be more desirable if their color schemes could be altered somehow. I'd pay cash money to do so.
  5. If you have neither need nor want for any tokens from this current season of ToI and you lack the means to get a high rank, then there simply is no need to farm this content. For better or worse, NC has decided ToI venture tokens are for end game players only now (or for those of exceptional skill).
  6. Well in Cinderlands your character works for that squat Stratus officer, albeit reluctantly iirc. Then you end up fighting waves of his minions at the end, so I assume there's some degree of betrayal going on there as well?
  7. Keep going, but don't upgrade those siren accessories! Instead, just acquire pinnacle as normal and work your way up from there. Later you can wear those siren accessories just to tilt people and to tell "back in my day..." stories.
  8. The drop rate for wings is very likely less than 1%. Some people have collectively opened thousands of crates and only managed to get their wings with leaves.
  9. Another word for it would be shame. Believe it or not, some people feel bad when they lose a pvp match against another human being, regardless of who else is or isn't in the room with them. It's similar to the feeling of frustration one may feel when dying to a raid boss, except there comes with it the implicit realization that somewhere out there, another person is better than you. At least that's what I'm guessing an average, casual player thinks when they avoid arena. Those that don't mind losing a lot before getting good are the ones that actually pvp at least semi-regularly. But to answer
  10. Before you even attempt to understand why people aren't joining arena, you must understand why they're avoiding it. Sure, you can encourage players to join by creating better incentives; better rewards or maybe, just maybe, if arena were actually fun? But giving reasons to join usually doesn't do enough to offset the main reason that makes casual players avoid arena almost as badly as they avoid 6v6: Humiliation. Correct me if I'm wrong, but for the average video gamer, the number one reason a player stops playing (along with boredom) is if they've been humiliated bad enough, whether repeatedl
  11. Hey now, there's no need to call out the displeased people like that.
  12. Personally, I did expect at least 0.5% chance. I was so very very wrong.
  13. Greetings. To preempt the people that don't care about the wings: Good for you, but this post concerns people that actually like the wings and may think they have a reasonable chance of getting them without powering through to 100 leaves (which btw have more or less been confirmed to drop at a chance of 20%). Given a sample size of 0 wings dropped out of 1100 boxes, combined from 5 people, one can mathematically deduce what the actual drop rate could be for the wings. Is it 1%? Too generous, 0.99^1100 (meaning the chance of 1100 boxes failing at 99% in a row) is astronomically low. Is it 0.5%?
  14. Sure, they could make the drop rate 1 guaranteed leaf per box, but then they'd simply change the number of leaves you need for wings to 500 instead of 100. As it is now, you basically need to buy 500 boxes for guaranteed wings.
