  • infusion with cores doesn't add value to items it makes a game with the most shallow loot pool in the history of the game have even less value. If I know the value of masterworked weapons as in orbs then 99% of my loot is simply garbage taking up space in the unlikely chance that a tuning balance will change the weapons I use. I don't infuse armor until I am at full light level again due to this false economy. what gear will I wind up infusing? Likely the absolute same gear I have on right now. Why? Because armor has no real value and we have already sorted and got the stuff with the best perk sets the game has to offer. But what about the glowing armor? You mean the armor that has perks for exactly one game mode that most don't even care to play? Sorry pass. I think that about covers it. Not that anyone will read or comprehend these posts any way. Hell we have shouted it from the mountains for months and then what we got was we will remove bounty X and replace it with the new bounty Y that you will purchase for gunsmith materials. Priceless.

    • As I said, if you really want to keep these enhancement cores than look at how they handled Phoenix Credits/Division Tech in Division 1. Everything you did would give you a way to farm those materials, it allowed all players to make meaningful choices with those materials but also know that they could play the game how THEY WANTED while not having to worry about farming them unless they really needed them. If they really needed those items there was a clear cut way to get large quantities of those materials while also being rewarded other things along the way. DO THIS! Make EVERYTHING WE DO HAVE A HIGH CHANCE OF GIVING CORES! There is a reason the dawning even was so beloved as an event, because we got cores by just playing the game basically.

    • I can’t imagine still playing this game in March 2019 and still not having a surplus of cores. Do you guys just sit in the tower all day and not actually play any activities? If you actually play the game, you’d have a surplus of cores, especially after the what went on with the Dawning.

        No, and still not playing. Enjoying division, and will monitor what goes on here. Not looking for small 1/4 fix type tweaks. Looking for a shift in bungies direction for the game. Todays twab was more of the same. As was LARS tweet about criticism. They are stubbornly obtuse. Fix the game and you wont need consumables to make people play a mode. Or fix the game and remove the whole forced to play something you dont want to. They are sticking to this plan. They know people are leaving in droves again. That says pretty clearly what their intentions are.

        I hoard cores because they don’t drop often enough. No one should have to play a game like that. I feel sorry for all newcomers. It must be such a massive deterrent.

        Absolutely not. I feel like a broken record but as I and others have said many times infusion cores are a deliberate impediment to progression. The means of obtaining cores are doing specific bounties. Meaning, players have to dedicate a certain amount of play time to obtain cores. Even just [i]buying[/i] Spider's bounties is a tedious task due to the cap on ghost fragments. So it's a farm within farm within farm; gotta do tangled shore activities for ghost fragments, gotta have the ghost fragments to buy his Bounties, gotta complete the bounties to get the cores. This is one of the biggest sticking points for me at the moment. It is by design and I think it's the most egregious example of how broken the infusion economy is. Now my fear is they will nerf the amount of weapons parts we receive from dismantling gear as we will be spending them on bounties from Banshee-44. So I'm not excited for this "fix" whatsoever as it doesn't address the core problem- a deliberately broken infusion economy built to inflate play time.

      • They're proposed "fix" is moving scrapper bounties to Banshee and calling it a day. It's beyond disappointing and just seems completely tone-deaf. This "meaningful infusion" nonsense just needs to go i think, Masterworks worked as a meaningful decision regarding gear but this infusion rubbish just slows us down until most of us don't get to the point where we have our ideal gear set that we can then go and masterwork..

        I don’t really care at this point. Game is in such a pathetic place right now that I find myself playing it less and less anyway. The lack of QoL change since the Forsaken DLC is mind blowing. The grind, coupled with the shallow loot pool, surrounded by stingy RNG has driven most players away. The inability of the Developer to put out a product worth playing truly saddens me.

          It was fine before, people are just bad at not infusing every time they get a +1 drop.

        • Honestly 99% of all weapons and armor at trash and not worth master works I am at 700 and all of 1% gear is masterworked and I am sitting on 180 cores and that is without doing spider core bounties

          • I think it is a great idea. And I know it sucks, that it won't be until next season, but adding new daily/weekly bounties isn't a quick thing, as well, will need play testing to make sure its implementation doesn't break something else.
