    Greetings!

    Below is a message from Producer Akihiko Matsui about adjustments to the old Salvage content.

    As a result of our discussion, since we have implemented the higher-tier Salvage expansion, we decided to increase the drop rates on equipment that could be obtained in the previous salvage areas.

    Also, in addition to the above adjustment, we will be making changes to the Bhaflau Remnants so that equipment will not drop only from the NMs that Reactionary Ramparts spawn, but the regular monsters it spawns as well.

    Due to the fact that increasing the NM spawn rate would affect the yield of Alexandrite, we will be keeping cotton purses and higher equipment drops rates as special bonuses for defeating the NM, but will be implementing these changes with the objective of increasing the chances to obtain equipment.

    I"ve not seen the Bee NM spawn in the last 12 times I've run Bhaflau remnants. Is there a special condition aside from letting the rampart spawn as many bees as possible?

    Otherwise some of the gear options are really great.

    I wasn't expecting a NNI -like revolution which made everything that came before obsolete.

    Awesome! Bhaflau's has been my mortal enemy for 35 drops. Is this something we could reasonably expect in the next update?

    I'm aware of how priorities can shift with time, would it be possible to perhaps give a monthly "status" report on progressing upgrades? Maybe percentage of completion on each item so you're not promising deadlines, but still letting us get an idea of delivery? Kind of like the Cait Sith video.

    Just to clarify, since the wording is a bit ambiguous, did you already increase the drop rate or did you just decide on it and will do it in a future update?

    Great idea. I agree with the OP on this that not all of the pieces of gear are the best in the game, but why would we want to put our NNI gear to rest so quickly anyways? There are a few pieces in the new salvage gear that would have uses for sure, and I am very happy to hear that the NQ gear is going to be easier to get.

    Hopefully they adjust the amount of 25 pieces that drop from the Mega Bosses as well.

    Seriously, we've been targeting AR for a while now to finish off my friend's Skadi pants yet it has been AGES since we've seen a pair of 25 Skadi legs drop (he wasn't there for the previous pair long ago).

    Perhaps make the Mega Boss drop 3-4 25 pieces instead to help groups out with this problem? :/

    Although if anything then, we'll just be seeing 3-4 Ea's Doublets drop instead of the usual 2 lol

    You have to find ppl with 15/15 NNI gear or completely hate NNI to do it. You only need 3~4 ppl for new salvage, so it's not zomg hard to make pt compare with those needing a static(such as meeble, legion etc)

    would t say hate nni in fact i know a few people who only have a few pieces(nni) still doing salvage 2 and i know a handfull of groups doing it (myself being in one) there are a decent number of really good pieces in there, just not generally in the most direct sense (like a thf with a last stand set up)
