Risk of Golden Talent Bottleneck
The new patch brought some very much needed relief by relieving the grind for current endgame mats and reducing the monotony of only having a few dungeons being worth running.
That being said, there is a new issue. Many of the old mats which no longer have a purpose and have been removed, with metamorphic emblems replacing gear upgrade mats all the way to HO+0. However, golden and silver talents are still needed for radiant accessories and for the conversion of gear to the mystic variants. Silver talents are still relatively farmable through battlegrounds...but golden talents have had nearly all their sources removed.
The only three places where I could find them were lock boxes, Kumas Royale BG, and vanguard credits.
- Lock boxes are already unfeasible to farm for the majority of players, so I am not even going to consider them as reasonable.
- Kumas Royale...I do not know the rate at which these are farmed, but considering you must win in order to receive 4 chests that probably give 4-5 gold OR silver talents at best, this is not reasonable at the rates required to enchant accessories.
- Vanguard credits... all I am going to say is that it takes approximately 400 credits to get one golden talent. Not reasonable.
I hope someone can correct me and point out another way to farm golden talents, otherwise we will once again see a golden talent bottleneck in the near future.
