so it relies basically on luck (aka crafting bonuses).

not my thing, but i'm looking forward to this anyways.

 

cannot wait to see what other prototypes you have in store for us

 

The base stats are pretty good. So even if you miss on the crafting bonuses, you can upgrade (at a fairly high cost) to get them up to scratch. 

 

The idea with these is that they're an attainable goal that you work at over time.

Fair enough. Like I said before, cannot wait to see what's in store for us with further prototypes. I'm assuming we're going to see some pretty unique (pun intended) items.

This is looking very nice, but why would HERC leave them lying around without even locking the boxes XD

 

I think this calls for a new dead zone meme:

I think I did this subconsciously. Also, new DOOM is rad.

Question. Is it possible that we might see HERC units using prototypes?

I hear "can make a perfect piece of gear if you save all your fuel for a long time"

Will the H-BAs have different schematics for different qualities? For example, a schematic for a base gray H-BA, and another for Superior or Elite H-BAs that requires that specific base item, like other craftable items? Or will it be a Premium or static quality item?

 

And will older prototypes still be available to craft once newer iterations appear?

It's is a singular, craftable, Premium quality item. 


Unsure about how we release them.

But the bonuses will change, month to month, am I reading that right?

Nope, the plan is to do new items month to month.

For now, 3. But they're going to be very very rare. They'll also be compatible with future prototypes.

 

These prototypes are crafted items, they're not drops. Overall, the thinking with this is that the crafts are relatively cheap, but the components are hard to attain. Oh and the quality is near unique, the base stats are enough to potentially put it well above anything that can be currently crafted.

 

Nice ! Future prototypes ? :D

But am I the only one that read the text ? There is 2 times HC-PLATE-1 in the description of the components, "High resistance material (HC-PLATE-1)" is indeed wrongly copy pasted :P

Yay! Honestly, I've been waiting for some changes in the crafting, and to know that we will be able to gear ourselves with some high quality premium gears (hopefully also weapons) fills me with joy :D now I can't wait to see this implemented

Btw, are those new gears going to be compatible with crafting kits? Because if so, it will totally worth to play until I can get some of them for my survivors

 So this is available for a month, then then the next item for a month?  Or this is available from release onward, and next month a new item will be available from its release onward?

 

These seem neat, but unlikely be worth recrafting raiding armors for most folks far as I can tell.  And perhaps not matched to the better unique looting armors.  But the promise of a new item each month sounds like there is room for some game changers in the future.

Will the armors or any of the  components for them be tradable?

None of the items are tradable for the moment. Got to earn your own parts. 

 

It's all up in the air. I'm taking a different approach with this, rather than making a bunch of stuff and releasing it in a certain way, this could be anything, available in different ways.
