Question: is it intended that rerolling all enchantments at Omicron Arkh will no longer have a chance to change the number of enchantments on the item?


For example, if an item with 3-5 enchant slots rolls with 4 slots initially, will rerolling all with Arkh have any chance of changing that item to have 5 slots (or 3 slots)? This certainly used to be the case, but it now seems that no amount of rerolling changes the number of enchant slots on an item.

I can confirm my character is progressing well now!  Thank you for addressing this issue!

Well, on the 3 other forums and discord, they finally have made an announcement that they are aware of the problem and working on a fix.  Finally!  Great news!

"Everyone!
We are already working on the issue! A hotfix will get released in the shortest time possible.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this report! I will spread the time of the hotfix everywhere to keep you updated!"

Same here, I select the forge world, and 1 options goes through a quick chat then back to the start of the conversation. The other options about the martyr cancels the conversation. Unable to progress the story from this point as a tech adept.

I'm having this exact same issue as well

Well, something broke in the game.  New Tech Adept characters

I cannot progress with my Tech Adept, I'm stuck at the Dialogue with Tybald Virtax on Forge World Thule.

The first dialogue option is three pages of text, the second option "Inquisitor: About the Machine Spirit of the Martyr ..." sends me straight back to the Planet Select screen and I cannot travel to any planet or system besides Forge World Thule.

I did of course mean: Something happens that make/made it IMpossible to fulfill your Mission.

Well, I do not always get Void Crusades done 100%. But not always because of me going out of lives, sometimes there was some kind of bugs or something that made me fail some of the Missions in Voids.

Something happens that make/made it possible to fulfill your Mission.

Anyways, I just opened a Hardcore Void Crusade, and I know I will be struggling when longer into the Missions I get. The further you go, the harder it get´s.


I don´t know if it´s this update that does it or what, but I did notice that those Missions I did play after the Update had  a tendency to be lagging/stutter quite a bit. In one Mission it was so bad it made me fail the Mission. It was in fact so bad I did lose the control over the whole game. This stuttering/lagging of the game is not a very common thing I experience.

Another situation was that a Chaos Space Marine did get stuck behind a Relic Chest, and it was completely impossible to reach him with some kind of abilities or hit him with weapon. With Weapon I refer to Close Combat Weapons. I do not know about Ranged Weapons. I hope someone else may have/had the same issue and can show a video of it.

Taking a picture of something like this is a waste. That would just show my Character in front of a Relic Chest and a Chaos Space Marine behind it, and that´s it.

Thanks that you think on us console players as well! ;)


Personally hardcore does not seem much of a challenge, about 95% of void crusades I do on my toons without dying, and I end up at +9-10 supreme missions and 500+ loot quanity. Sitting on several hundreds void shards (sometimes I even sell them) as well, but at least 50% loot bonus is some free lunch, right? 

What really   is not encouraging is that you need to start with missions on your level which pose not the slightest challenge at all, and are therefore just utterly boring. So personally I also woul like all missions on the max Level I aim for right from the start at the tradeoff of better loot Quality.

- Ancient relics are already under our scope. They will come next.

- The buffs are not optional, but it depends on RNG which Archeotech gets the buffs. The existing items though got the changes.

- You can start Crusades in Hardcore mode if you collected enough shards. Although the difficulty cannot be set, it is still a real challenge to complete the whole Crusade with one life.

I like changes.

A few questions :

1. What about ancient relics and morality weapons? 

2. Are those archeotech buffs optional? If no will fix exosting items and blueprints?

How can I set the difficulty level on Intel Mission & Void crusades?

As long as that isn't possible this game has no end game.
Being bored while hoping for "that drop" isn't a game, it's...boring.

Rebalancing is good. But when the core game is deeply flawed - why bother?

A lot of interesting changes to skills(greatsword and boltpistols looking good right now). I will try the new Crusade tonight(maybe even on hardcore). Love the new loot-sorting-buttons, nice QoL feature. :)

Any chance that Archeotech-Blueprints (that dont have the improved skills) get updated too?? 

My Bolt-Pistol Archeotech-Blueprint still says "Spread[Wide]" for Full-Auto. :(
