The WTF has been in discussion over the wearable sets & bonuses. In the beginning- the long, long ago, there were a number of wearables that were created and matched into sets which when looked at today, are not very feasible. This may include:
A wearable set containing three or more rarity tiers
A wearable set containing two items of the same rarity and a third at a higher ranking
A wearable not belonging to any set at all!
We’ve been talking about creating some new set bonuses to help bolster some of the forgotten items. Before we go much further, I wanted to reach out to the community as a whole and gauge interest in doing this.
I propose this idea for two main reasons:
Increase the value and utility of wearables. Many items are gimped compared to their same-ranked cousins due to lack of viable set bonuses. By bringing them up to par, the value of the wearables market would rise.
Add some new sets before RF SZN 3 kicks off. With Season 3 right around the corner, some new set bonuses would add more variety and gameplay to the wearables market. Some new sets would hopefully add some more volume to the marketplace as players stretch for those new BRS bonuses.
As it is, of the top 5000 players, 2063 are currently benefitting from set bonuses.
- As a bonus, simply because it’s fun and adds a little more flavour to the gameplay while we’re eagerly awaiting the realm launch.
My personal belief is that each wearable deserves at least one viable set to belong to, and I’d love to hear what the rest of the community feels on this topic.
Here are a few of the new sets we’ve been playing with:
- Yes! Let’s make more sets. The moar the merrier.
- Yes. More sets, but let’s be sensible about it.
- No. No new sets from existing items.
