why some legendary items have only 2 shard slots?

Recommended Posts

I upgraded the shark gunwitch weapon all the way to chaos 6 and half already and then I realized it has only 2 shard slots. is it because its a special weapon? it doesnt make sense tho, it makes it worse than normal weapons..

Is it an older piece of gear?  Because if it is there is a bug with older gear where it will only use 2 shard slots.  You can put a 3rd shard on it but it will have no effect.  Older relics seem to work fine but weapons and armor do not.  Maybe they will fix it someday.

The top slot should have the megashark specific mod\power

its a mod not a shard.

Legacy weapons only have 2 shard slots, as when shards were released, they had 2 slots, which was later increased to 3, but Trendy didn't reroll any old gear on that update. It's not a bug at all, it's just the fact they didn't reroll the items to a newer system in the past. This would also be the case for any armor you kept from before the Early Access Loot Update, which happened around April/May 2017, as armor used to have 2 shard slots too.

I think during the time of the Loot update, it wasn't changed due to how loot works back then as you get better gear, the older gear becomes useless immediately. The Legacy weapons were just memorabilia back then.

And currently Trendy have plans for weapon transmorgrification, so...that might solve the problem.

There are issues adding additional shard slots to these older items. There are currently no plans to add them as a result, this affects a very small number of players in very specific circumstances.
