Scourge - Legendary vs Elite tokens

Post by WilStryker » 20 Jan 2019, 17:43

Hi,

I was looking at the points you received by handing in the following scourge tokens:

10 Legendary tokens : 40 points
10 Elite tokens : 50 points

I wondering should the elite tokens provide a larger boost with the Scourge points relative to their difficulty ?

With the current points on offer, it makes sense to farm the legendary Scourge rather than stepping up in difficulty and go after the Elite spawns.

Possibly.
The top level content was really still in development when we stopped, and never had a chance to be reviewed and revised.

First thought for a possible revision are:
Change the value of the tokens to...
Tier 1: 2 points.
Tier 2: 3 points.
Tier 3: 5 points.
Tier 4: 8 points.
Tier 5: 12 points.
And make the drop chance on them 50%.
That would make the point gain rates the same for Tier 1/4 Scourge, slightly less for Tier 2/3 Scourge, and slightly more for Tier 5 Scourge.

If that seems overly complicated, its because I don't want to touch the ranking requirements.

The 50% drop chance would complicate looting a bit. If you are in a party it means you will probably have to count and divvy up at the end of a run, or any time someone joins or leaves the party. Whereas currently you can just try to even out how many loots everyone gets per encounter.

Wouldn't it just be easier to change the Tier 5 from 5 to 6?

Sorry to hear that Andre... Personally think Sathias is the obvious and easy option just to increase the one tier of elites and leave the rest alone... Perhaps increase to 7 points is all I would add to that...

As for the drop rate's, I think 25% or 1 in 4 is a bit too sharp a nerf... Would not it be better to drop to say 67% or 2/3rds just for a trail period and see how that works out...

Whilst on the sort of the same lines is it at all possible that some new ranks be introduced at the top end... Say a earl/viscount/lord followed by general/field Marshal titles with up to 4 stars as ranks on the newer 2 tiers ? Just purely a suggestion ...
