So I'd just like to throw out there a couple points about the current state of brooches in GFSW and ask the questions I think most of us are wondering in these regards. It would be really nice if we could get an official statement addressing some of these concerns.
When is the return of SIN brooches? It's been an entire year since they were last released and at this point it's almost impossible to get a good set now, especially in NA. Considering SD, FOT, and BSK are all perma in the shop this is really awkward. It's also an incredibly unfair advantage to players who bought them last year. I myself have a few sets but I always get newer players asking where to acquire these brooches and when I explain they always seem frustrated to hear.
Are SIN brooches being held off due to the upcoming brooch revamp? Maybe this is to try and minimize upset when the majority of SIN brooches end up with significantly different effects? When it comes to FOT/BSK most just get buffed or at very worse slight nerfs (like with provoke), but some SIN brooches go through big changes. Either way these brooches currently exist in game yet have only been offered for sale once. This really does need to be addressed, and maybe the reason actually is the upcoming revamp, but it also leads to my next question: when's the revamp?
We're at the point where the majority of dedicated players are aware there's an incoming brooch revamp. This causes all kinds of price distortions on the brooch market in anticipation of the new brooch effects. For example we have otherwise trash brooches like BSK hellcat now being valued at or above best in slot brooch prices and the former best BSK defense brooch, provoke, being valued lower than it used to be. I could go on and on about how awkward it is having a brooch market that moreso reflects future brooch effects we don't even have yet than it does the current state of the game but this is starting to reach tldr so I'll just leave it at this:
When will SIN be back?
When can we expect the brooch revamp?
