First of all I really enjoy this gamemode. It’s interesting, replayable, fun and brilliant, thank you Fatshark!
I hope that Chaos Wastes will get better over time with multiple updates and additions and here couple of my suggestions.
1) Altar of Mastery
Very rare altar that allow players to choose exact talents from their talent trees for corresponding cost. May appear at later levels (from third to last for example). Interface:
2) Altar of Offer
Common altar that allow players to reroll one random boon for another with corresponding rarity for 75 coins. If you have useless boons you may try to get rid of one of them.
3) Altar of Dice
Common altar that allow players to reroll one random boon for another with random rarity for 100 coins.
4) Altar of Luck
Rare altar that reroll all your boons to random ones with random rarity for 200 coins. May appear at later levels (from fourth to last for example). If you have no build or want a lot of fun you may try to gain some crazy stuff.
5) Lesser Seer’s Altar
Very common altar (like almost twice of Seer’s Altar) that give you one random rare boon for 100 coins. Straightforward variation of existing altar. You may stock random boons to reroll them on Altar of Luck later on expedition to get more exotic and unique talents. Or you could buy a lot of cheap boons to improve your chances at shops, chests and usual Seer’s Altar. Simple altar with additional layer of planning. May look like existing altar but different color.
6) Bot upgrades
Bots should get map rewards and somehow improve their weapon at lest (maybe they could upgrade their weapon when host upgrade his and get random weapons when host get). Now bots waaaay
7) Weapon altars
Two words: duplicate protection. You should not gain same weapon if you buy random one (you should upgrade them instead). You should not gain weapon that you have in another slot (for melee only careers).
8) More information on a map
Allow press Z to investigate your weapons and I to see talents and class perks. Pretty simple and super helpful especially at shops.
9) Chest of Trials
For now chest not a challenge but instapick for loot even on Cata. Make them harder a bit so team should actually consider to pass if they have no extra resources or specific characters. Maybe there could be two bosses (with 2/3 of health?) or boss and guaranteed horde and/or specials wave.

Feel free to comment, discuss and make you own suggestions! It would be super interesting to see what you think.
