I was just wondering about the game mechanics and drop rate, and this have crossed my mind.
Its an idea for post 1.0 release**, something that could be considered in future concerning new endgame content and new endgame chasing itens
Do you have anything that crossed your mind that could be cool to see in the game in future ? Something you desire a lot to be implemented as new game mechanic, new ways for pursuing new chase game itens ?
Ill start with 2 Ideas, one of them is what I wasted quite some time elaborating it
New dungeon idea (craft new Ascendant Exalted itens)
How About a Dungeon where you can merge 2 exalted itens, and get 2 random affixes from each iten ?
Just like Temporal Sanctum design, but instead of crafting a Legendary you would craft an Ascendant Exalted iten. You put each exalted iten of the same type (same base or not, debatable) in each box and try your luck to get you a new Ascedant Exalted iten.
These Ascendant Exalted itens can not be used again in the dungeon, they can not be merged to anything else, to prevent power spike and full t6/t7 itens.
and If we are worried about power spike, breaking balance with overpowered itens, there is some restrictions that could come along, just like creating a new rune, Rune of Ascent (as rare as glyph of Despair / Or as rare as Rune of Creation / Or something between these 2 rare drops).In order to use the final Box of the dungeon you need one Rune of Ascent in the box (there will be space for two runes).Maybe with 1 Rune you have 60% of success, and with 2 Runes you have 100% of success.
One final mechanic, concerning the sealed affixes of exalted itens.
1- With 1 rune: A) only one of the itens have a sealed affix - you have 25% of chance that the sealed affix will be in the final Ascendant iten.1- With 1 rune: B) Both itens have a sealed affix - you have 50% chance that a random sealed affix will be in the final iten.
2- With 2 runes: A) only one of the itens have a sealed affix - you have 50% of chance that the sealed affix will be in the final Ascendant iten.2- With 2 rune: B) Both itens have a sealed affix - you have 60% chance that a random sealed affix will be in the final iten.
The second idea is often mentioned around discussions, maybe in the form of another dungeon where you can Clean a Legendary Iten and restore it to its default LP to give it another try.
No especifics mechanics planned around this one, its just something I would love to see implemented in the game, maybe in a far future, but who nows ?
