Blade & Soul is tweaking dungeon rewards to prefer newer dungeons

Stop just doing the old, familiar dungeons of Blade & Soul. Do the new ones instead. Even if you’d rather not for whatever reason, you won’t be given much of a choice in the matter soon; the newest patch for the game is tweaking the rewards to emphasize newer dungeons and scale down rewards for the old standbys. Newer dungeons, by contrast, will get more streamlined rewards to make them more enjoyable as well, and you’ll be getting more stuff from daily and weekly challenges regardless.

The patch is also bringing with it a number of changes to materials used for upgrading to streamline that process; the time and effort should be fairly constant, but the exact materials are getting shuffled somewhat. That’s in addition to specific item changes, all of which mean that you might want to rearrange your bags and farming habits when the update lands on May 9th.

Well, it makes sense. BnS is giving you so much as quest rewards as you level that older dungeons aren’t being used much anyway. They are a bit of a snore fest to be honest.

BUT, this patch does more, much more, than re-swizzle rewards so that you run higher tier dungeons.

For those of you leveling, now when you cap you will have a tier 3 legendary weapon. That is a huge deal because you can jump into higher level dungeons right away giving you what you need to progress.

Also, there a simple combat mode is being added. So newbies and those with many neglected alts can use this mode to initiate key combat combos with a right click of the mouse. Lol! Damn… Not sure how I feel about this yet, but I think it will be helpful.

Summary: new raid, new dungeon, old raid nerf, better dungeon rewards, skills update, QoL improvements, two events (including a sacred oil event!!).

Note to any Soul Fighters out there: They are also releasing major updates to your skill tree. SFs will be much more powerful and useful in group situations. A good time to level your SF and have some fun.

Here is the vid of the live stream. A bit boring for the uninitiated, but very informative.

I may be back at some point! I had a lot of fun leveling but not so much once I got to endgame. I hope they eventually completely overhaul endgame gear progression but I don’t foresee that happening :/

Yeah…endgame shouldn’t just be about daily instances, gear grind and gold sinks. But the journey getting there and doing the story was a blast though. Just ask Mr. Rafael, I roll alts instead to do it all again. :)

It’s an ebb and flow. People come and go. When they return, we can get them up to speed. :)
