    Silver and Gold Eggs

    Hey all,

    So i'm making this to spread awareness of how hard it is to get uncommon and rare companions, i did alot of drop rate testing on PTS with bronze eggs and i can say with confidence that the rate at which you get the higher rarity companions is way too low, especially considering the 10 hour timegate on the incubator and/or the resource costs of accelerites.

    Midway through PTS a change was implimented that added silver eggs to Tier 3-5 rarely and gold eggs to Tier 5 rarely, however right near the end of PTS, this feature was removed again, apperantly on the grounding that it wasn't working properly (even though i saw many reports of people finding silver eggs, and 2 reports of gold eggs), So i really can't see which part of this feature wasn't working.

    With it removed, most players are going to be struggling to get the uncommon and especially the rare allies as the expansion progresses, being able to find these higher rarity eggs and looting duplicate companions were also a fairly decent supplemental source of crystals, so the overall progression of the patch is hurt because of it.

    It also just removes alot of the excitement you would have gotten from finding rare items like that. Getting bronze egg number 500 isn't really something to get fuzzed about.

    I would very much like for the feature to find the higher rarity eggs in higher tiers to get put back in as soon as possible, its really needed to round out the progression of geode and make the rarer companions actual reachable goals.

    EDIT: The above change has been made, but sadly the rarity of the egg spawns make the change completely worthless, silver and gold eggs need to be alot more common, this coupled with the slim chance of pulling rare companions out of bronze eggs, and have them be DUPLICATES, makes for a very discouraging system.

    Even though I'm not too long into geode myself, just finished the questline and got to tier 3. I feel like this is a needed change and I can't agree more on it getting reimplemented and as you said Chrono, it will definitely make the rarer companions be able to reach.

    Yeah looking at the amount of rares it does seem like it's going to be a pain. What are stats like for duplicates? Are they randomised apart from GAS? That could be another pain if you're try to roll ideal stats for a companion.

    Stats are predetermined for all companion types. Duplicate companions will have duplicate stats.

    I agree with this wholeheartedly. The added chance you might find a better egg in the higher tiers makes a lot of sense. Opened 12 eggs and i got 10 common 2 uncommon. One uncommon I used the lodestar. The commons out of the 10 I got 3 different kinds, the rest duplicates.

    My add on: Put something geode related into the radiant sov. post. That would help. Lodestar, metamatter, Space expander. That would be nice.

    I've hatched 30+ Bronze Eggs on live and have only hatched 1 rare. Almost all were opened with lodestar buffs.

    Agreed, and this is the main reason I see for them to put it back in. Along with other rare finds. As it stands, Geode is a lot of common farming for common materials and common.. well.. everything. There aren't really any rare finds to make it exciting (at least that I'm aware of). The opening 10h eggs is pretty good for that, but looking for the right kind of lair shouldn't be the only dramatic thing when spelunking.

    I'm not going to call the system broken just a few days into the expansion when it's working as intended. However, the team is always willing to listen to different points of view, especially when they are well-reasoned. There were definitely changes coming in hot and not everything from PTS was able to make it live. They'll be seeing this thread though. Thanks, everyone!

    Unrelated, but this was in my head when I saw the thread title, so now it can be in all of yours for a bit.
