I understand this topic is similar to many old topics doing shoutout for other teams needing atlas access but this proposal stoked me.
Continuing the discussion from Proposed Buffs To Dragon Rider Gear post in Atlas group which i can’t link in this post.
While i do understand that it takes insane amount of time +/ money and effort to get epic and legendary gear to max, the difference is what hurt me the most. I also understand that its a proposal but seems a bit too far fetched for those of us without Atlas access.
The below was quoted about 4 hours ago by PGEcho in Atlas subforum.
-We know that rider gear is quite difficult to obtain and takes a lot of time and effort.
-The material cost of Legendary versus common/rare/epic gear is quite large.
-The added buffs provided from each rarity bump doesn’t seem to be meaningful enough to justify the effort/crafting cost.
-Its difficult to fully notice/appreciate the benefit of a dragon rider unless they have full outfits of leveled up gear.
-Seasons rider gear (rare quality) was much easier to obtain making crafted gear from Atlas more of a pain.
-Increase the buffs to gear to reflect the difficulty and material cost
-Reduce the crafting scroll quantity requirement by 50% to craft items
Max Possible Gear Buff With Full Set of Gear By Rarity:
+80% Dragon Attack +80% Dragon HP -> Legendary Gear
+40% Dragon Attack +40% Dragon HP -> Epic Gear
+20% Dragon Attack +20% Dragon HP -> Rare Gear
+10% Dragon Attack +10% Dragon HP -> Common Gear
For reference here are the current stats in game before this proposed buff:
+25% Dragon Attack +25% Dragon HP -> Legendary Gear
+14% Dragon Attack +14% Dragon HP -> Epic Gear
+8% Dragon Attack +8% Dragon HP -> Rare Gear
+5% Dragon Attack +5% Dragon HP -> Common Gear
No Atlas access- Rare Gear +20% HP boost and +20% damage boost
Atlas access: Epic Gear +40% HP boost and +40% damage boost
Atlas access: Legendary Gear +80% HP boost and +80% Damage boost
So while we, who don’t have atlas access keep working hard but have no shot for those epic and legendary gear, someone with atlas gear on rider almost doubling the stats of a dragon and same level can attack us!
Over and above that, you don’t give us any specific timeline of atlas roll out to other leagues.
And it remains in question whether Atlas access will be given to Gold leagues.
Now someone can come and tell me: If you want, go to higher leagues or one with Beta Atlas.
If you think that is a solution, you are just being personal and not answering my question at all.
If someone says what if team doesn’t want Atlas access, there can be a proposal where a team when offered a chance either gets to accept atlas access or reject it.
