So, my last FOUR runs with a friend, we never got past 400 weapon power on our weapons, and were lucky to even get THAT.
Yet weapon swap/trade shrines were showing yellow/red by the third map.
Upgrade shrines are stupidly rare, given that you can pick your favorite weapons to bring into an expedition, and probably won’t want to switch.
Plus many Builds rely on specific weapons, and some classes, like Barden’s Slayer, literally need specific weapon types! IE: 2 1-handed weapons for one talent, 2 2-handed for a different talent. So you can’t use anything but flat upgrade shrines.
So please; make weapon Upgrade Shrines more common. We’ve finished expeditions with over 2100 coins multiple times, simply because they never appeared, and we were running builds that COULD NOT risk losing a weapon type we had with a Trade Shrine. Or we just had weapon types we liked too much to risk it.
