I'll be going into more detail and explaining the changes coming to the Rune system over the next few days/couple weeks. This post will organize those upcoming threads so you guys can get an idea of everything that's changing without being overwhelmed with a giant wall of text.

 

Part 1: New Stat/Element Breakdowns

 

Part 2: New Runes per Rune Set

 

Part 3: Weakened Runes

 

Part 4: Rune Slot Counts

 

Part 5: Rerolling Rune Elements

 

Part 6: Adding Rune Slots

 

Part 7: Improvements to acquiring Runes and Runecrafting materials

Looking forward to it. I've been hard on you guys about Runes but just from the title I can see some effort to get back the flexibility that came under the old system, so I'm looking forward to details

Please be closer to a few days and not a couple of weeks.

This wasn't a big issue for me personally, I just wanna say it's nice to see you guys talking in the forums.

One request: Please don't change the general sets to which the runes belong. As in, I'd really hate to log on and find that my 12/12 weapon specialist is now 8/12 because some of the runes lost their sets.

 

Thanks for the update!

I think they are just adding more attributes not changing them I think.

Well I'm only half serious.

I've learned to keep my expectations low at all times when it comes to video game... "promises".

But I am very intrigued by re-roll/add actually becoming a reality.

 

Preparing to be kicked in the crotch by the actual implementation though. :P

Or: "Re-roll has a 75% chance to quarter the slot's efficiency. This cannot be reverted."

 

The possibilities are limitless! :D

This is good as I got 5 earth slots due to RNG, good to know I can now max them out with fitness and increase my AP.

its a good start for the basic stat runes, but the changes to sets and weakened runes are  the real big sections to see. a few questions.

can we assume that the new runes will come sooner rather than latter, since  they aren't  truly new thing and should take little testing?

what the hell is up with the Hardrock set, its itemized like a tank set but weapon specialist is  itemized  as a dps with a bit of defence?


 In Wildstar don't attribute anything to malice  that can be accounted for  by incompetence.

Carbine studios, a textbook case of blown potental
