Shouldn't BT drops blackstone, VT drops silver scales, and TT drops onyx scales?

Currently, BT drops nothing, VT drops blackstones and TT drops silver scales. No doubt this trendwill continue onward.

 

VT is the gear level that it starts to use silver scales, and TT is when it eats blue scales for breakfast. Especially if you go non-raid path which consume an even larger amount of respective materials.

 

By the time people run VT, they don't actually need more blackstones, but silver scales. There are now five dungeons that drop blackstones from NS to HH. Same with TT, where players need a lot of onyx scales instead of silver scales, and silver scales are now abundant with guaranteed drops from four dungeon from DD to Shadowmoor. Yeah, I know that for first few weapon stages, you still need materials from previous tier (blackstone for VT 1-6, silver scales for GC 1-6...), but by the time you hit the bottleneck (a brief while with VT6-9, and TT 6-9), you should have enough resources of blackstone/silver scales already.

 

If anything, the change would benefit new players. Assuming a new players join this game and start to working his way starting BT, then extra blackstones from BT will help them save a few dozens of dungeon runs/week. Same with VT and silver scales. Most importantly is for TT-gear players, cuz there are now too many things that eat blue scales. While blue scales will inevitably becomes abundant, just like what happens to blackstone and silver scales, I think dropping scales/stones according to what players need on that gear level will make those materials from raid more meaningful to players' gear progression.

that is why there is BC, which drops guarantted 1-2 onyx scales, and the dynamic always awards fragments. Its much faster and more efficient to farm them there, especially since the dungeon got hit with the nerf hammer.

Stop making sense.  You'll just scare them.  BTW you can also add that DKV still drops regular gem hammers.  :giggle:
