Legends of Aria bows to the RNG gods of enchanting

With its launch right around the corner, Legends of Aria is spinning up the hype-and-info machine to re-introduce this fantasy MMORPG to the masses. As part of that endeavor, the team put out an article explaining how the game’s itemization just got a lot more interesting thanks to the brand-new enchanting system.

Crafters and the RNG gods will play a large role in enchanting, which will result in creating “powerful and highly sought after items” for adventurers. Players have the option to use essences as dice rolls to increase an item’s stats by a little… or a lot. These essences are used across all of the game’s crafting disciplines.

“Item properties are going to have far wider implications than crafting and enchanting alone — this expansion affords us, for the first time, the ability to drop meaningful and diverse item drops, be it a common pirate or Goblin sword or cursed artifacts from the Void,” the team said.

Lame. I hate rng enchanting-like systems in anything but ARPGs. Hopefully once the private server tools are released players can remove this system.

I think all my favorite games have RNG, the more RNG the more I seem to enjoy them, and the more linear/flat they are the less /shrug.
…as long as the RNG is not tied to cash shop (in which case instant no go), and fortunately afaik it is not in LoA.

Not a huge fan of RNG item improvement, but as long as it’s not tied into a cash shop or carries the risk of losing/downgrading the item, I’m ok with it.

Id want to loath any enchanting mechanics after KR/Asia companies are predatory milking players with that – but since Path of Exile has the best enchant/gamble/craft mechanics without them milking money for it – I leave it here :D

Listening to the last cast, this is now of interest to me. Probably going to check it out even though i loath 99.9% pvp anything.

You’ll be happy to hear that they’ve removed roughly 99.9% of the PvP.
