    Sortie earrings of player choice

    Hello!

    Are there any plans to add a system wherein players can trade NQ, +1 and +2 earrings of undesired jobs for those of desired jobs?
    Perhaps a NPC similar to Coelestrox for Omen Paragon Cards or Lame Deer for empyrean footwear?

    Every player would greatly appreciate it.
    Thank you for your consideration!

    I don't even open the Old Cases anymore. What's the point? Haha

    This would be wonderful to see, but very unlikely. The Skinner Box doesn't work if you can actually force it to issue a positive reinforcement occasionally; it has to be random and with a low chance of reward.

    Well sometimes a way of doing something like this is added later to facilitate people playing the catch up game.

    I opened 99 Old Cases, representing 20-25 days worth of daily Sortie farming, for three +1 earrings. No +1 cases dropped in that entire time. This is atrocious.

    Sortie has only been out for two weeks, you haven't spent "20-25 days" farming it.

    That doesn't mean these drop rates aren't trash, just fact correcting.

    Are you just trolling? It's more like one month AND two weeks. Sortie released August 16, 2022. I popped the 99 cases on September 26, 2022. I am absolutely baffled by this response.

    No I'm not trolling, i'm just an idiot and looked at the last version update date (Yes, really) when it was actually the one before.

    But it really doesn't seem like it's been that long lol.

    I'm definitely hopeful that as more pieces of Sortie are released, +1 and +2 earrings become more accessible and friendly to obtain.
    Otherwise, Sortie will quickly become as unpopular as the Shinryu HTBF. What is the point of content that doesn't provide rewards?

    To get a +1 earring?

    Honestly, anyone who doesn't care to farm the earrings can stop doing the event when they are done upgrading. The ears aren't necessary, and some are good as NQs, like THF or BLU.

    It's likely that the new zone coming will see the Galli cap go up and add more earring drop chances. I'd be fine seeing only the less soloable zone dropping +1 boxes with any frequency.
