Default Socket Upgrade - reduce cost

I am afraid the socket upgrade feature is practically unusable. I've been collecting resources since the blacksmith update and haven't spent any (I am a patient guy). I've dismantled like 18 epics from my tower companions so far and yet I can barely add one socket. Imagine what would take a non shroomer to add a socket to his long anticipated epic he just got from the toilet. It would take months to collect the crystals required. Even for hardcore shroomers it would be impractical to use the socket upgrade feature as they could spend the resources on item upgrades - that is currently far more cost effective.

So my suggestion is - reduce the socket upgrade cost. Not just slightly, but at least 5 times (crystal cost) - then people may actually start using it.

I agree, it's stupidly high. For us non shroomers that disenchant regular items and get from 20-120 crystals, it will take ages to get one item socketed.

Couldn't agree more. Also if I may add following:
  • Upgrading items after lvl 4 also costs significant amount of resources. I can only imagine how much it takes to upgrade each item up to 10 times. Reason more to lower price for socket upgrade.
  • Gem extraction is imo useless. Why would you destroy item for a gem that you can mine in few hours. For that action to make any sense, we should get item and gem, not just gem. And then use item to throw it into toilet and dismantle it.

Thanks for mentioning it. A guildmate said today he tried the gem extraction and he was quite disappointed he lost his epic. He said he wasn't going to use this extraction thing again. Neither he would use the socket ugprade. And this is a hardcore shroomer - if he doesn't use these features, I don't know who will.

Thumbs up

+1 also it will be really great to create separate topic about removing gem/dismantling

How do you guys find the new update? I think the price is reasonable. Adding a socket is 10 mushrooms more expensive than buying a new epic, but that's understandable because you need to find the epic first and that costs mushrooms. Overall a little expensive for the non shroomers, but it's a matter of priorities to decide where to spend your mushrooms. For me it is quite acceptable.

The update was installed the servers this morning (EST - morning).

If you aren't seeing it, refresh your browser. I didn't see it at first either until I did that

Thanks, I was asking about your opinion on the update, but there is already a topic for that anyways. Cheers

LOL sorry! I'm blaming a blonde moment on that one
