Thread: Reintroduce lost items

    Reintroduce lost items

    The 18.7 patch came with a major clean up of shop inventories and mission rewards. In many cases this is either more newbie-friendly or more convenient for everyone.
    In some cases however, we've lost access to useful items. Some examples:

    Hacked Boosted-Graft: Advanced Shielding Barrier
    One of the Grafts not available from the broker in Smugglers Den. 343 AC's without profession requirement.

    Hacked Blister Pack with Rifle Mastery
    A +50 rifle buff without profession requirement.

    Nano Crystal (Throwing Knife Expertise)
    A +20 Sharp Obj buff that isn't covered by any of the composites. Nice if you're throwing lots of Kizzermole Gumboils.

    Nano Crystal (Adventuring Expertise)
    A +20 adventuring buff that isn't covered by any of the composites. Since it may not be obvious why this is useful; it can be used to equip a Robust Backpack

    Nano Crystal (Treatment Expertise)
    A +20 treatment buff. If you bought a can with Computer Literacy Mastery, your Composite Utility Expertise gets canceled, but Treatment Expertise can be used together with it.

    Nano Crystal (Weapon Enhancement)
    A +5 damage buff without profession requirement, that you can cast on yourself and your pets.

    Nano Crystal (Improve Health)
    A +10 health buff that stacks with every other health buff.

    I feel these items are relatively small advantages that were probably not removed for balance reasons. Existing characters who have them also got to keep them.

    My suggestion is to add an NPC or terminal somewhere, for example in the Borealis Antique shop, with all the old expertises, proficiencies, ability boosts, grafts and blisterpacks. This way the general stores remain clean and newbie-friendly, while experienced people looking for minor gains can still get them.

    Only real need for this is that backpack from ICC Commendations, but overall that isn't needed.
    (Robust Backpack is taken care of through implants 210 from ql 200s easily done at the level req plus your base skill)

    Think their point is such that if you buy that, you also buy the treatment nano can. But overall yeah, that would be nice for those that would ever buy that can. ^^

    Not sure why they removed the boosted grafts. Having a ql 200 hacked boosted graft with <weapon-/nano-skill> incompetence was awesome for duels since you could use them while in nano recharge, and they have 100% chance to land. Debuffing 20 1he on that twink enf to put his weapon in OE, while in nano recharge from layer spam was <3

    we lack the LR energy weapon buff also , 20 ranged energy stacks with the composit , you can still get it from someone that had it uploaded, but we have no way of getting the nano for ourself now.

    ...
    if you need that buff it can be acquired on icc shuttleport. I still have an enfo on icc shuttleport, and I can farm the basic enfo nanos there if needed. I should probably gather a backpack of those nanos if theyre discontinued....

    Any idea why they removed all of the blister packs??? They were really cool and useful. Why not just leave the really useful ones and remove the ones that nobody needed at all?

    I was just planning today to make a lvl 25 1hb enf twink.

    Can you tell me when you are online so i can grab one of those from you ?

    They're unique btw, so unless you got more than 1 toon on noob island, you can't get them. I happen to have a toon there, but other profession.

    Thanks.

    Where? The nanos from that shop have changed to what's on Arete... would like to know where you would get it now on ICC Shuttleport.

    Unless you're on a different ICC Shuttleport that isn't ingame, then you can't get it from there.
