To be honest, I strongly feel that everyone who has a veil should be given the option for a full refund regardless of how long they have had it. Just over 30 days is considered full use for an item that costs nearly $600? That is a lot extreme even for IRE. While that clause is indeed clearly stated, something this costly leaves a terrible taste in the mouths of some veil owners who no longer want to keep them. Sorry, but this isn't some small $20-$100 item here.
Just to chip in here.We do not like changing artefacts for all the reasons @Ismay is stating. Its very important to us that you guys feel pretty confident you're getting what you're paying for - I think how long this change has taken to happen is a sign of that. An artefact very much has to be causing quantifiable damage to the game for us to consider these kind of actions, and that doesn't happen often.
I'm torn. I've always hated veils. I very much agree that the ability to hide from consequences was bullshit and hated that for 600bucks people could become untouchable for a large proportion of the playerbase.However, due to the fact that I found myself playing when very few people in Targ (if any) had veils I went and saved for about 10RL weeks to buy one with the express purpose of being able to locate people with veils. I bought my veil on Dec. 5th/6th.With the changes: I no longer need a veil to sense these people and thus it no longer fills the need that I paid for.And the secondary benefit of my veil hiding me from the unwashed masses is now also gone.Fullsense is cool! Super handy! But I'm not sure that it makes me happy about the change. I'd probably prefer if they just deleted/refunded. I dunno. Still assessing my opinion on it I guess.
The notion that the gem is now useless is silly. Hiding you from thirdeye alone is a very useful feature, combined with hiding you in dangerous planes. I admit the temporary hiding feature isn't all that useful, but the other two are still plenty worth it.
Thank god this came before the auctions ended. I was about to shell out cash for about 15000 credits. Tradein it is.To be clear, not really mad about the changes. But I justified the purchase of the veil and gem for precisely the reason people probably dislike them. I wanted to be really hard to locate. The current changes make those items worthless to me especially as a monk.That said, it also makes buying anything from Achaea an even worse investment, because that's alot of money to put out for something that has no real security to it.
