    Well, this was going to be a "What I want to see in Arkadia" thread, but then it occured to me that its pretty much micromanaging, so I changed it :p

    • Blueprints that make use of the many of the unused and underused component BPs. There are lots of those waiting to be used. Many use cheap materials and would make it easy to skill up and sell the product for new crafters.
    • More specialist armors. We have Thunderbird and Salamander and Viking from Calypso, it would be nice to get others for other damage types.
    • No limited armor/plates with durability below 10K
    • Plates to fill various holes in the present lineup, both 5a/4a to 5b and otherwise
    • Weapons to smooth out the SIB charts.
    • Cut+Stab mobs

    I understand we are not going to get all of these at the beginning.

    1st point, I guess a good idea. Bps that make components to other Bps right? :)

    2nd point, like you said we already have the elemental armours in place, for Acid we got plenty of choices, Merry Mayhem, PoE & gremlin. For Impact we got Carramone lol, for Stab we have Chronicle lol, no one armour has a higher Cut than other stats but what comes to mind is Paradox which is extremely rare. No such thing as shrapnel armour since noone irl can survive a dead on hit to a rocket launcher.

    But yes I'd like to see more lower level armours than uber sets having unique stats & to not be then made rare or expensive due to materials or what loots it becomes extinct, only to not then redistribute that potential item to another mob is beyond me. Forget about it not being expensive, not sure what I was thinking.

    3rd, 4th & 6th point, I guess the armour and plates can be specific to the planet and its mobs. If more mobs on Arkadia use Stab or Cut then I'm sure we will see armours of that sort on all levels. I would love to see UL plates go past 10k durability or have tiers like armour.

    5th point, the one I agree with the MOST there are so many gaps for different professions on Calypso but mainly to do with melee will you see the gaps, as well as other weapon types.

    Please don't leave any gaps, it is a good thing that you will not have the standard tt items in place on arkadia's tt but your own. I think that is a good move especially if the one I saw in the vid is a BLP gun :D, always wanted a lot tt blp sib weapon and I might just postpone buying the UL CB5 just to go get the herman :).

    No. what I mean are Arkadia specific new blueprints for items, armors, weapons, vehicles, etc that make use of results from existing, but grossly underused / unused blueprints. Like: Basic Engine, Basic Pump, Galaxy SI Ion Conductors, (Hardened) Metal plating, and so on.

    Vindicator has 'cut' as highest protection, more than twice of any other. But its one of the 'insane' blueprints so nobody has and uses it really. It is inevitable that Arkadia will need to release its own low and mid level armors, Pixie replacements and similar that can be looted I guess (no way around that), but it would just be good if some presently existing niches got filled.

    Well, as far as I am concerned, both blp rifle and pistol charts are filled with holes, for most of the ranges, there is no overlap, sib starts on one, sib end on another, alternating between looted and crafted. Others are just as bad.
