Voidwatch: Crystal Petrifact

Some of you might be finding Crystal Petrifacts on your adventures. As stated in the version update notes, this item will be required for the final chapter of Voidwatch, but currently cannot be used.

This item will be the equivalent of Voiddust once the final chapter is implemented. By exchanging a certain amount of Cystal Petrifact, you will be able to obtain trigger items to challenge the monsters of the final chapter.

That said, while it may just be taking up space in your inventory right now, you might want to hold on to them for future use. Unlike Voiddust, Crystal Petrifact can only be obtained under certain circumstances and is not designed to be sellable.

Hope you are all looking forward to the final chapter of Voidwatch!

Greetings everyone!

Sorry to necrobump this thread (as I am often wont to do…), but I have some information to pass on regarding Crystal Petrifacts.

We are currently making preparations for the implementation of a system that will allow Crystal Petrifacts to be exchanged for cruor.

While Crystal Petrifact is an item that was meant to help players when their stock of Kupofried’s corundum was in short supply, in the event that you do not need this, we felt it would be beneficial to exchange Crystal Petrifacts for cruor, which in turn could be used for Atmacites, Periapts, or other applications. However, since the original purpose of Crystal Petrifacts was not to generate cruor, the exchange rate will not be very high.

Also, there were a lot of requests to make it possible to exchange these items for Voidstones, but doing this would create the cycle of doing Voidwatch in order to save up points to do Voidwatch, so we would like to hold off on this type of exchange.

Greetings!

The exchange rate will be around 100 cruor or so for each Crystal Petrifact traded. The plan is make the method of exchanging simple by using Voidwatch Officers, Planar Rifts, and such, and we will also make it possible to exchange multiple stacks at one time.

Regarding Crystal Petrifacts

Thank you for all of your opinions on crystal petrifacts.

After looking at all of the feedback, we've decided to hold off on any adjustments for crystal petrifacts for the time being.

Kupofried's Corundum/Crystal Petrifact have original purposes related to Provenance; however, in the future we plan to think about the applications for a little longer and involve it in the plan for overall adjustments to Voidwatch.

Since people may decide to perform the exchange in a hurry, it would be a waste of we added a new element to the system in the future. Since we are getting so many ideas at this point, we want to spend more time thinking about it before introducing any exchange system.

Therefore, we will leave the current situation as is for a while so that you can continue to save them if you desire.

Greetings everyone!

After looking over all of the feedback in regards to the planned adjustments for Crystal Petrifacts, the development team has decided to hold off on them at this time.

While there are a variety of thoughts for new ways of using Kupofried’s Medallion/Crystal Petrifacts that tie back to the original application in Provenance for the future, this is something that is closely related to plans for adjustments to Voidwatch as a whole, so we will be thinking about the uses keeping the long term in mind.

If we were to quickly add methods to exchange this item right now, it would become a waste when we implement new elements and content in the future, so we would like to spend some time looking into all the ideas we have received and not rush into anything.

With that said, it might be cumbersome to carry all those Crystal Petrifacts, but we would like you hang on to them a bit longer while we flesh out the plan. Of course, feel free to exchange them for Kupofried’s Medallion though!

Regarding Crystal Petrifacts (Continued)

My translation. Don't go trading in your crystal petrifacts until there's an official translation; I don't want to be blamed!

Bismarck.Sclud (JP Player) said: »
Based on the way you worded the previous post, I'm understanding that I'm OK to change Crystal Petrifacts over to Kupofried's Corundum even if you add something in the future...?

Yes. After all of the feedback from people who had already traded for Kupofried's Corundum, we are now thinking about making this adjustment to give some sort of benefit to excess Kupofried's Corundum. Therefore, it does not matter if you make the conversion like it did before.

Thats true, but most ppl now a days wont really help anyone other then themselves. And they wont do anything unless it has a drastic reward either.
With attitudes like that everywhere, getting anything done really is a chore. While i don't like everything thats come out in the game, i gotta think the loss of fun is more because of the ppls attitude here rather then the game itself.

I totally agree with this. Its more about peoples attitude then anything that makes this game go downhill.

I think what it was for me was partially VW....
Abyssea can virtually go on in as anything and have fun....
VW however....9/10 if you didn't have X job.....you wasn't going....and the only job I had that was VW related was brd.....but to say I didn't have it....I probably wouldnt have had chances to go do VW and would force me to go level another job that VW welcome....hence it being a chore

Compound that with the fact that "Empy"-less jobs need not apply and you further exacerbate the problem. Not that I really have an issue, but its an obvious problem that exists. If your pick up group isn't stacked with 12+ weapon holders then you're a failure...and more than likely, you LITERALLY fail haha.

Take it for what it's worth, but I miss having a strong LS with a base of good members/friends. Shouting to start pick up groups just isn't my thing.

I know I just said this in another thread, but for the love of god stop telling us what you're going to do and do it.

Edit: That is to say, building my anticipation for something then taking six months to put it in really gets my goat. ._.;

Should have been stackable to 99 from the start.
At this point it's pretty much a pointless change for most people

The only people a stack to 99 helps are people who can't even do Provenance.

They should make it so you can exchange petrifacts for almost ANY item.

i.e. 100 petrifacts -> Athos, Ogier, Reb body

Instead of curor, they should let us trade petrifacts for the non-pulse loot we want that never seems to drop.

Edit: Essentially the same thing got posted above me while I was typing... lol

VW was a time sink from the beginning, but I don't think it's been the most popular one. I'm sure Salvage takes the #1 slot, but new Nyzul comes close.

That's a great idea. problem is SE wouldn't do it.

Because if you pick up all the piece's you want threw petrifact's, there's no reason to spam the fight's other than the major few.
