So, I really appreciate the update that gave us red dust and the ability to craft items with perfect stats. It’s pretty great because RNG has decided to keep certain weapons out of my reach while bestowing me with a great bounty of certain others (not to mentions necklaces, charms, and trinkets…) I don’t really even mind too much that we don’t get the Veteran weapon glow for crafted reds (but for the record, I would vote to give us Veteran weapon skins for the cost of 5 red dust.) I understand the decision and also it would be a weird thing technically to incorporate at this point.
However, what can be kind of annoying is being stuck with a base weapon skin because RNG doesn’t want to give me any other weapon illusions. It’s fairly frustrating that the weapon illusion unlock feature showed up after so many hours in the game, but especially after having seen certain weapon illusions drop that are awesome but I wasn’t of the mind to hold on to them for whatever dumb reason I had (at one point I only cared about Veteran illusions, and everything else was garbage in my mind.)
Would it be a difficult task of turning up the chance for weapon illusions to drop for higher rarity/weapon power items? It just seems a little absurd to get a Recruit skin for a Kruber weapon when it’s a lvl 300 Exotic weapon. There are some neat illusions I can see using the Armory mod that I would love to acquire, but right now the chances seem extremely unlikely I’ll get any desired illusion; Veteran or otherwise. Like, depressingly unlikely…And in my humble opinion, that’s not great game design. On the bright side, it seems like an easy fix that I can’t imagine would upset anybody.
Thanks for any consideration you may put into this topic.
