Secret World Legends adjusts controversial raid reward lockout

This is fine.
While new — or at least, warmed up and re-served — content is all well and good for Secret World Legends, the player community took particular umbrage with Funcom’s handling of the NYC raid in this week’s patch.

The controversy revolved around a new week-long lockout timer on rewards, which many felt was unnecessary and counter-productive. “The players’ concerns are that this makes it difficult to play together with friends, their cabal members, or even just to help out random strangers who are asking to form groups in general chat,” blog Self-Distract Sequence noted.

Fortunately, Funcom heard the uproar and hotfixed a change to the raid today: “The lockout timer for the Manhattan Exclusion Zone raids has been adjusted so that it is now applied when loot is obtained for the first time each week. Players can now repeat the encounters throughout the week and will receive reduced rewards.”

I just want them to make shit like the epic glyph XP thingies stackable. I’ve got a bank full of the bloody things and you can’t stack them nor can you delete them. Inventory/bank management in this game is annoying as hell -_-

Yeah, those things not being able to stack makes no sense.

The devs have said on Reddit that it’s due to a limitation of the coding, where letting you stack things which can be used in empowerment or fusion would break empowerment/fusion if you tried to use a stack all at once.

If they can’t fix that, then it’d be great if they could make some sort of “gear xp pool” you could store distillate xp in to save inventory space!

That’s shitty but understandable, but the least they could do is let you delete the bloody things -_-

Don’t take them out of the bags, the bags stack.

Yeah, unfortunately I learned that well after I’d almost entirely filled my bank with them : (

It’s such a stupid thing that shouldn’t be an issue, but there’s a lot of little shit like that that lingers from TSW or was introduced with SWL that makes playing the game a pain in the ass from time to time -_-
