@LusterMain I do agree there's an issue with meseta sinks not existing. And yeah, this quest is still really damn good without a PSE burst. PSE Bursts just cause problems that compound onto each other: More value per trigger, more time spent running the trigger, more time spent sorting loot. All of which means you're closer to sustaining the trigger costs per week, and are spending less time farming other things that could help put other needed materials into the market such as Modules.
Consistent meseta methods are fine for sure. That's why I'm not advocating for it to be nerfed into the ground. I certainly did similar for meseta in the past.
Perhaps I should change the title to "should the loot be nerfed or not" because honestly, I think the storage issue is much worse than the inflation issue.
I only mentioned it getting nerfed into the ground because it is what they have done in the past (Elder). Though, to be fair, that case uniquely warranted it.
I do agree that this quest has put a spotlight on how bad the inventory system is in this game. I have quite a lot of empty space for it, and only keep any units that have a guardian soul component or doom break 2+, and it still takes too much time so sort through that.
To add to the discussion, I believe one of the big reasons (aside from the obvious) the quest is being run into the ground as hard as it is is that there's just not anything else going on. The only other really nearly "worth it" quests at the moment are TPD (which is barely being ran anymore and triggers still aren't readily available for it) and divide, which many global players seem to not like doing, if they can do it at all.

Because they removed alot of the meseta sinks for global.
The enhancement cost 0 isn't all that common on JP server, this boost week on JP was like the first time I been in that was sync'd up with enhance boost week. (and affixing is disabled since the beginning of boost week....)
There is also no weapon exp mini. On JP especially before EP6 where collection folders didn't give fodders, you had to feed your weapon slowly with 10*+5 weapons or enhancing a 12* to +26 and use it to enhance your weapon if you were short on lambda grinder. Feeding a 10 star to like a high rarity weapon is like 16k per weapon? and still like 10k to 12*.
I was talking mainly about global, but I am vaguely aware of the state of jp. It's true that global has had it much "easier", but it does not necessarily detract from the point that the meseta sinks are insufficient (I was also only mentioning the 2 sinks which I believed to be the most significant. I am well aware there are others like weapon grinding, because I was unfortunate enough to live through them briefly). They clearly haven't done a sufficient job of reigning in inflation on jp, from what I've seen.
