That's what interests me the most. I did a /testcopy and when it came back saying it was successful, logged over to Test.

Those items cost 500 Crystallized Fear each.

I bet they don't expect many of those items to be bought.

A better way to handle all all the raid cash stuff would have been to make all the Tiers give out the same cash and of course make the items expensive and only available when unlocked. Alas we're heading for a forth type of currency soon I guess.

- Bows from House of Thule and onward now have a type 3 socket and corruption focus.

Corruption focus? As in focusing our corruption based spells??

Think more so for SKs, so they dont have to carry two range items.

WARNING! I just posted this to my guild's board, and this is worthy of posting here, as well.

Next patch they are adding an augmentation type 3 slot to bows. Rather than raid bows being slots 4, 8 they will instead be 3, 4, 8.

There were a couple of complaints about augs disappearing from bows when people went to check Test. I went there, and sure enough, my bow augs were not correct : one was gone, and the other was in the wrong augmentation slot.

Unless they fix this prior to the patch going live, it appears as though augs in the 4 slot are going to vanish. That is because they do not fit in the type 3 aug slot that is going to be the first aug slot listed on the bow. If you have a stat aug in the 8 slot, expect that to vanish - as they do not fit in the 4 slot. If you have a damage (or proc) aug in the 8 slot, then it will be moved to the 4 slot.

This is what I mean. My augs, on live right now:
4 : Azure Shard of covetous Absorption (4, 8 slot aug)
8 : Frosted Topaz (4, 8 slot aug)

My augs on Test :
3 : empty
4 : Frosted topaz (4, 8 slot aug)
8 : empty

The Azure Shard suddenly found itself in an aug slot it did not fit in, the 3 slot, and vanished. The Frosted Topaz found itself in a 4 slot and that was to its liking. There is no third aug slot on the bow, so nothing to move into the 8 slot. That's what I think is going to happen - thus this warning. REMOVE AUGS FROM BOWS BEFORE THE PATCH UNTIL AFTER THE PATCH.

I just posed about the Vulak items: https://forums.station.sony.com/eq/inde ... st-2970543

500 across the board for items that are basically T2 level is excessive, they should consider pricing the prices in line with other T2 items.
