Let’s talk about those who freshly entered T4..
Most likely those people will search for the Annihilator Set, but let’s be honest.. chances are very slim that they get it by capturing keeps. So most likely those people have to rely on Officer Medallions .. and to some small degree on the bags which they might get from the guild, but the latter is rather unlikely.
So..Officer Medallions.. Anyone noticed that they are now really sparse and tricky to get? When you kill someone you get nowadays most likely Invader crests and above. Officer Medallions don’t drop that often..Back before the last patch you could easily change the higher crests to Medallions and be a happy Annihilator. Now it’s easier to obtain Invader than Annihilator gear..which is somewhat strange, but a obvious side effect from changing the conversion rate from 1:5 to 1:1 and making the city sieges that **** frequent.
My Slayer got most of his Officer Medallions from T3 when he killed those R31 alts.. Now I’m thinking about buying the Conquerer Set, but I have way to few Medallions because I’m already looking at Invader (I don’ rely on the city bags.. Too much based on luck and I just don’t like to do the city siege that often..). The crests are not the problem, but the Medallions..
I’m not sure if this was intended, but this 1:1 conversion system is unfriendly to lower ranked players. This is something which will hopefully change in the future..The easiest way would be to enable Conquerer Crests to be broken down at the old rate, i.e. 1:5 and leave the higher crests in the current state (1:1). This would increase the overall Officer Medallions to some small degree, enable folks to buy Annhilator and above gear, but would not increase them too much..
Another twist would be that the merchants convert the Medallions.. If I remember right the merchants below T4 allow you to buy a chest which converts e.g. a T3 Medallion to five T2 ones. I’m not sure if this system still exists, but why can’t there be such a thing for T4 with Conquerer Crests?
I’m not sure if this are good ideas, but I hope that there will be something done.. It’s just not right that you have more problems with getting Annihilator gear than with Invader.
