Where is trendy?

Recommended Posts

Its true that the loot in this game is extremely lackluster compared to the DD1 loot, for some reason they went with the choice of watering it down to be as generic as possible (outside of what 8 weapons?). Having the mp buff of getting more legendarys makes them even more worthless, because sometimes less is more or atleast it means more. But when the game is where its at right now adding a different tier wouldnt be the best answer, personally i would love it but there is hardly any content that requires the extra tier. 

Only a few people are messing around in high onslaught, most players are stuck in the constant ons floor 50-80 loop (or begging for help with said loop). We need content that is worthy of rewarding of us with the new tier before we get it, truth it is most of us dont currently need it. The answer to your issues is most likely shards/setups/mod quality if you are struggling, not gear in general.



Hopefully in the future they can improve on the loot, make it stand out a bit more (Maybe we can even try to live up to the a-rpg part) but right now all that loot would mean is that it would make it 50-100% easier to afk in a game thats mostly afkable already. But at the same time whats the point if the gameplay loop of ons 50-80 for all eternity is still around?

Loot (IMO) just  does not feel as interesting as it did in DD1, i like the mod system but when a legendary item drops its like 'oh anther  one', in DD1 when top gear dropped everyone on the map would be on the edge with anticipation to see how good it was..  

Great list. i agree with so much of that. 

That last bullet point is a great call-out. Maybe we need a tier above Legendary now. And one that can drop on any stage, not just Onsl 80+. 

I remember in Borderlands 1 when the top tier become flooded, which was gold/legendary, they had to come up with an uber level above that. so we got Cyan weapons on one of the DLCs. It did just what you are talking about, while golds were just "meh" at that point, when you killed a big boss and it dropped a cyan weapon, everyone turned into those 3-eyed aliens from toy story "oooooh, the claw". I'd love to see DD2 add a new level above Legendary, that was super rare, but anyone could get one. And you could not advance your existing weapons to it (yet at least). Something to grind for, something to earn, something to collect. Even better if it came with some new DLC patch that had some uber boss you had to farm for better chances at drops of it. I want a cyan DD2 weapon...

I think I came out with this a while ago - 

Maybe have it red and crackling with red lightning power to show how insane that tier is!? The Unreal tier!

Funnily on Pc ive only ever encountered 1 toxic person in my 3 years of playing this game, i dont think the decline of this game is due to a toxic community, the steam charts are in reference to Pc players i believe. If trendy really want to sorting things out they better start making meaningful changes and most importantly start investing into more marketing.  These are some of the problems 'i' believe need addressing in the game: 

  1. Pets are just a fifth ability, go drag or go home   
  2. Hero market place redundant, everyone buys in lobby, limited time/players
  3. Dividing an already small dwindling community with onslaught gating makes cooperative play so much more difficult and discouraging.
  4. DD1 eternia Crystal DLC all had some kind of lore, recent DD2 expansion is a frozen dude jumps off icy dragon, 
  5. lack of Unique mini events previously seen in DD1 such as mega chicken,isom,arm-guard etc to entice people to re-login and collect.
  6. Name of the game is Loot grind, we accept that but not when it is Korean level grind, juicebags video on how many motes required to revel summarizes the ridiculousness. 
  7. AP , well thats been heavily debated about as is ^^    
  8. Loot (IMO) just  does not feel as interesting as it did in DD1, i like the mod system but when a legendary item drops its like 'oh anther  one', in DD1 when top gear dropped everyone on the map would be on the edge with anticipation to see how good it was..  

Dragolich is good for AP builds as it basically doubles your damage in a burst.  Other pets are good for Hero Damage builds, while Snowball probably hits hardest at 2,750% HD, there are a lot of pet abilities that inflict 2,500%ish damage.

Market place has it's use, there are usually a lot more than 20 people in the lobby and you can find that you are in different clusters of people to other people wishing to sell.  I tend to find market places a lot more frequently on the Euro server than the American ones.  I'd prefer if people wishing to sell went to a marketplace.

I like Onslaught and prefer the mechanisms to normal chaos level exploration, but I think the game needs to evolve where it incorporates Onslaught, Ascension, Ancient Power and Mastery into a unified system where there is organic progression, the game feels too much like it just has different individual systems glued together and while the design is functional, it lacks the elegance of system that was designed all at once.

I am surprised the better aspects of DD1 weren't retained more than it has.

Ancient Power resets is something optional, but eventually if you play long enough it will be one of the last things left for you to do, I think a lot of people who never intended to do AP are now finding it is the only way for them to progress further.  Trendy is aware of that and are looking to revamp AP in some manner.

I agree that loot is too finite.  I like the mod system, I wished they expanded on it and reduced the gap between tier 9 and 10 values for most mods.  However, if you get into infinite Onslaught level pushing, there is only so far you can get with a finite stat values.

To be fair - community asked TE to be more communicative, which they were doing up until the xmas holiday time, but since then, there has been a noticeable downshift in info.

Reset mastery haha uhm yeah not for me thx. To go through that again ? Nope no thank you

It might be interesting to replay it now that we have mods.  The first run through was less than enjoyable in spots.  I've still got 15 or so stars left.

On our streams we've announced that our next update is going to be more player-centric. As of right now, that's all we can announce, but within the next month, you'll hear some really good things.

Just for the sake of clarity, "within the next month" equals February or the next 4-5 weeks? Exclusive or pls.
