A lot of the current discussion about reclamation fees doesn't seem to take into account the not-bleedingly-recent fee revisions. For shame, folks.
I never saw this in the patch notes.
This is the kind of change that people would be unlikely to notice. Most people have long since read the tooltip and are just rubber-stamping the reclamation process.
Literally every time this issue comes up, it's not long before someone points out that a good number of players actually *do* quite like it (myself included, yes). This prep will not be changed. If it's not to your personal taste, there's still enough others who make use of it quite regularly to justify its current existence.
There are essentially two discussions going on here. First, there is the discussion of whether the prep should be there, and the second is that its priced much too high as a preparation.
I totally concur with you that it should stay, but I think 55 gold is a little outlandish.
With regards to some of the other prep discussions, though, we actually now have some data-mining capabilities regarding their relative popularity and will be investigating those some time this week.
I'm curious about this, too. Given the overwhelming popularity of Taurog you guys revealed several weeks back, I think the veterans on the forums are almost statistically irrelevant to the larger masses, so I'm very curious as to what the results may be.
Honestly surprised to find that people actually like the scouting preps after all, considering that the feedback from the forums when they *did* exist was overwhelmingly negative
The only negativity I recall was complaints that they were just way too good
. Scout (altar) kind of completely overshadowed all the others.
