I killed every Talos at least once, the Talos of Technology definitely at least twice, proably more. I’ve farmed a ton of [Animated Particulate]s and every 5 of them, unlocked a new Shem pet. I now have the following 10 Shems in my pet inventory:
Clay, Concrete, Frost, Magma, Sand, Silver, Stone, Swarms, Verdancy, Water
Earlier today, I got another set of 5 [Animated Particulate]s and right-clicked them. Sadly, instead of getting the 11th Shem of the set (Shem of Technology), all I got was a measly 1,000 Anima Shards.
I asked people in #Sanctuary and on the official Discord about this and could not find a single person who a) was not a TSW veteran and b) had obtained the Shem of Technology. Several people told me that they, too had all 10 Shems, had killed all 11 Talos’, and had gotten 1,000 Anima shards instead of TechShem after that.
It appears that only the TSW veterans have the Shem of Technology, as that one was carried over for some reason.
I filed a Petition and a GM responded (really fast \o/) and told me that, as far as they can tell, Shem of Technology is supposed to unlock just like the other 10. Said GM then asked me to post here about this issue, as it appears to be a bug.
I would greatly appreciate this being fixed so my Golem Family can be complete and dance happily in Mr. Sonnac’s office. Wait, don’t tell him I said that!
