Not really a bug, since technically working as intended, moreso an oversight in development, I guess?
With the Economy Update, item quality on crafted gear now scales with the crafter Thrall used to make them (Armorer, Blacksmith, Carpenter, etc.) and no longer has dedicated blueprints for quality levels (Exceptional, Flawless Quality was removed).
The scaling is the same for all items crafted, T4 thralls give additional stats according to their specialization. So far so good, here is the issue:
There are items in the game that were not meant to be „scaled“ during crafting, items that did not have „Flawless“ variants before.
And there are items that had higher scaling then the now generalized default. (Where the difference between „flawless“ and „basic“ was larger then usual)
The former category are dungeon recipies, items that were on par with flawless craftables, without being „flawless“ themselves. Examples for this are:
Khari gear (Armors and Weapons)
Silent Legion armor
Godbreaker and Champion Armors
These items now receive quality scaling when crafted, resulting in them to scale far beyond the power levels they had before, outshining the most powerful legendary gear by a large margin, to the point where some of them make entire gear categories redundant.
A few examples:
T4 Shieldwright crafted Khari Soldier set:
T4 bladesmith crafted Ancient Lemurian Weapons: (all stats without any upgrades)
T4 crafted Godbreaker Armor gives +4 to attribues per piece
T4 crafted Champion and Silent Legion armor give +3 attribute points per piece
T4 shieldwright Black Corsair gives a total of +15 agility and > 600 armor points with bulked platings, as a light armor set.
T4 Blade/Edgesmith Dragonbone Weapons are better then every Legendary found in Skeleton Key chests.
T4 Khari Bow with Master Weapon fitting: (The bow is missing its VIT bonus and only gives +2 to accuracy, this may actually be a bug)
And then there is the latter category, items that scale worse then before the economy update. This includes ALL Eladrium armors, which are now simply missing the additional stats their Flawless variants had before.
T4 War Court giving +10 total STR instead of the +15 it had before
T4 Black Knight and Frost Giant Armor missing their STR Bonus alltogether.
Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:
- Craft the above mentioned items with a T4 crafter Thrall
- Compare them to their Pre Patch equivalents
- Either rejoice or frown at the jump of powerlevels you find.
