Cryptic has announced on the forums that the Tarmalune Trade Bar Store for the Xbox One doesn’t offer the full array of goods as the PC version: “As some of you have noticed, there are a few differences between the Tarmalune Trade Bar Store on PC and Xbox. In particular, the Wards and Gems tab does not include Blood Rubies, Preservation Wards, or Coalescent Wards. We just wanted to let you know that this is intentional. Though they may show up at some point in the future, they are not supposed to be there with the launch of Neverwinter: Underdark on Xbox One.”
This change goes against a statement posted several months ago in which the studio promised players that coalescent wards would not be taken out of the Xbox One store as well as a developer blog in which prices for the now-yanked items were clearly displayed.
While the studio said that players shouldn’t expect “exact parity” between the platforms, the negative reaction to the announcement prompted the studio to update the announcement by saying that it is reviewing feedback and discussing what to do from here.
“First off, I want to say that we appreciate the continued feedback and are listening to absolutely everything that is being said right now. Our team is having discussions about the situation regarding the Trade Bar store item removals and the adjustment to the scheduled events, and are looking at what we can do. I know this isn’t the answer that everyone wants right now and that swift action is requested. We aren’t ready for that just yet, but are discussing options.
A full formal response will be coming (hopefully tomorrow as we continue our investigation), but we want to make sure that our community knows that we do hear everything that you are saying.”
