Y'all need to stop with the boring gimmicks. They're fun for like... maybe 3 runs, but after that, they get boring. At least give us the choice of using the gimmicks or using our exocores, alright? I'm getting so tired of getting my exocores shut off to be forced to use some stupid item in a long, tedious BM that you expect us to play HUNDREDS of times just to try to get some special item. If I have to slog through some tedious BM, I would like to choose HOW I slog through it instead of being forced to play the BM in almost the exact same way over and over and over and over and over again. It's not fun, especially when the boxes these BMs give out have a 90% chance or so of giving only 3-day timed items that may or may not have better stats than what's in the shop, extra panics, crit stones, or gems instead of the items your after in the first place. What's the point of an exo-locked BM giving you items that give you +100 sp? How are you going to use SP when you can't use your exocore, and you can't use your HP regen items because you have to have the +luc items to HOPE to get multiple boxes per run? How about, instead of locking the exocores, you give us the ability to use our exocores the entire time from the start without it being some weird, barely functioning item that eats HP when you use a skill, hmm? Maybe have the items be a secondary way to get through the BM for those who don't have any good exocores yet, or just want to use the items. TL;DR - Give us a choice of using the gimmick items or our exocores instead of forcing us to use one or the other, ya know? ============================================================================= Another idea would be to change how getting the special items is done. You can keep the timed scrolls in the boxes, but the other items used to unlock the better scrolls should be found in the BM itself, as item drops from the minions. Of course, you'll have to increase the amount of the items needed, but it'll be more fun overall to grab whatever special items you need for the upgrades from the minions instead of having to rely on getting super duper lucky with the boxes you pretty much only get one of without luc items. :v I'll use the current event BM, DH14 War, as an example: Instead of needing 3 spirits of Ice and 3 Special Memos to upgrade Ice Breaker SFV, you'd need 30 spirits and 5 memos. The normal minions you destroy on the way to the boss should all have a 30% chance of dropping a spirit of ice, a spirit of fire, or a sands of time, and 30% chance to drop HP items, and a 40% to drop nothing at all. The larger enemies would drop the special memos, but only at a 10% chance. So, killing the male androids gives you spirits/sands, and killing the iron armors and spiderbots gives you the memos. This will make getting the upgrades or special scrolls a little easier, and make the event bms a whole lot more fun overall.
