    I think round about three years ago, maybe a little before was when they announced the new and exciting changes to the fusion system where all the orbs would decay to 50% potency after a while and likely break when you removed them. There was a huge backlash against it because of course there was, and they haven't revisited fusion since. I don't think they even let you make the orbs anymore. At least I haven't seen the vendor in a while.

    Personally, I believe that the reason they nerfed fusion into the ground and then subsequently abandoned it was because it was a way for players to achieve a high level of combat effectiveness without throwing dollars into the grinder.

    Now they've got the special tokens to let you add special flares if you grind seashells, the smithy to let you convert dollars into crit/damage weighting/padding, et cetera, et cetera. You wouldn't need or desire those things nearly as much if your weapons were already strong from fusion or other systems.

    As to your other question regarding forging, the only development has been that they found a bug with dying the hilts and instead of fixing it, they just removed the wiki entry on how to dye your hilts.

    My read on the fusion nerfs (which were really something else) was that they'd rather they'd never implemented it and making it damn near fucking useless was the best they could do to shove the genie back in the bottle. Hardly anyone uses it anymore, from what I can tell. If you had good fusion shit before the change, you were grandfathered in. They essentially created an insurmountable barrier to entry.

    That was what I got out of it too--I forget which GM (or Wyrom?) said it, but something to the effect that they didn't expect so many people to be running around with full +50 enhancive sets active.

    Classic Simu. Nerf now, fix later, and later never gets here.

    That's been the story since I first started playing in the 90's.

    How long did the game go before you could get new items with weighting/padding? And don't even get me started on DB items. Heh, or my Might Mortal dagger in Lineage 2

    The fusion thing is sad, because it was one of my favorite systems that they have ever introduced. I could think of several easy fixes off the top of my head, but whatever.

    And now, if they ever do improve it, it will screw over people who spent a lot of money on grandfathered orbs. Like when I lost craptons on my GS3 katanas, heh.

    In a game where people spend countless hours/months/years figuring out Simu's retarded secret formulas and putting together all sorts of spreadsheets and other bullshit in order to min/max the fuck out of their character, you'd have to be extremely retarded to put out a system like fusion and not expect people to eventually be running around with shit maxed out.

    If you maxed out your fusion shit before the change you get to keep it as long as you don’t pull anything out. So.. it’s not really a nerf per se at least for people like me who got into fusion early.

    Actually, it’s an indirect buff.

    It's a straight downgrade and all but people act like if you look at old fusion stuff funny it gets fucked up and changes to the new shitty version. It's only a 5% to get damaged, it happens, it sucks, it should be avoided....but 95% of the time it works just like it used to.
    Mithrilschlong, 2015-03-10 to slightly later on 2015-03-10. You will not be forgotten!
