@Furious said in if elder rifle got a nt why didn't orbit:
I've seen "NT" tossed around a couple times.
What does it mean?
Not everyone has been playing for years.
Personally, I hate it when people use acronyms for everything. Half the time I have no idea what they are talking about, even in games I've played for ages. Mini rant over! Not directed at you, Thousand, just mini-ranting.
Question still stands!
all weapons used to grind the way units do, just with worse rates
our elder rifle is a NT-styled one, meaning it upgrades by absorbing other weapons instead of by rolling the dice
the problem is that it has different balancing. JP elder rifle has 756 RNG power at max, and either increases power by like 7% or reduces PP consumption. this weapon is a 10* from episode 1.
our elder rifle, however, has 1451 RNG power at max and has an easy-access 30% damage boost ability. they also updated its rarity to 12*
so basically half of our gear is just new stuff with new balancing. and instead of rebalancing a bunch of weapons to make them NT weapons, we just lost.. god knows how many.
and a lot of those lost weapons have actually been good potential side-grade items. orbit is a series that changes how pp regeneration works and SHOULD have started dropping half of it from apprentice.. and we just didn't get it. because revolusios are more important
YSOK (current producer) talked about how NA doesn't have as many minmaxers or hardcore farmers when we haven't gotten anything new to farm for for two months
