Main server New effect.

Post by iresh » Mon Jul 09, 2018 11:29 pm

This effect only happens when you get a better shard chance and since there is a partical limit in town . it can't be seen there . It appears as a rain of baby blue particles in your square. of course since a gs made out of addy does not have 72 power yet you will not see it leveling that up. but Tungsten and up gs will. I just want to help people learn when they have a better chance.

I was wondering what that was.. saw it when one of my addy tachis hit 22k last night. Very nice addition!

Could you elaborate further on this. I’m having a hard time following.

What I've seen so far (just the one instance) was the particle effect showing up when my addy tachi reached Ancient (22000). So basically a visual notification that the sword is now potentially capable of producing a shard (still depends on your WV when dismantling, and the % chance).

Based on what iresh said above, I presume that the effect will appear again as certain (currently unknown) milestones are reached that increase the % chance.

Wonderful news. Does the sword age past 22k show up in the tooltip when you mouse over? Also I presume your tachi was dusted for purpose of shard. Does the dust effect only happen as long as all requirements are met ie I didn’t dust my tung gs but it hit 22k. Does the effect still proc even though there is no dust on the sword? I imagine not I’m just trying to look out for a false positive.

She says it helps highlight increases in shard chance, so my assumption is that it'll only happen if there's enough dust on it to satisfy the "dismantle attempt must return dust" requirement.

That's my assumption.. can't be sure though.

the sparkles will not show a false positive. meaning it will not show if there is no way to get a shard :)
