also they "temporarily" removed dark sectors / clans fighting over them *how long ago*? and there's still no sign of that returning?
and now they're using similar wording as they're removing the Trials without any replacement sans moving their arcanes to the plains.... have I mentioned yet I can't reliably play on the plains? But I can reliably play the trials. Which they're removing.
grumble mumble and their replacement for the trials will probably take years
and it's all their own danged fault too, if they'd kept up with maintenance on the trials it never would have gotten to the point that it takes more effort to maintain them than to just remove them and replace them entirely. Instead it's yet another in a long line of implement poorly, tape malfunctioning extensions onto, never properly patch, abandon maintenance, remove. Hell, well over half of the game is all of that except remove. Trials, Archwings, Dark Sectors...
"you won't need to mine or fish to access PoE content" they said, numerous times, going into PoE.
Good luck building a Zaw or Amp or PoE Arcane without doing a *lot* of mining *and* fishing. Or spending a lot of platinum, on gems/fish parts that are only available for plat in a random shop selection cycle.
And this is post buffs and turning single use blueprints you have to buy with ostron standing into multi-use blueprints. It was worse at launch. Much Worse.
