So Corrupted Records Part 1 came out today and it's pretty cool. New content to play through, fashion to farm, and even an akasha card was secretly added. There was also at least 1 bug which slipped in. Since I don't see any threads for this figured I'd start one and if we can get our feedback in one place should be helpful for threea to relay to the team. So in no particular order (except the first one which is by far most important):
-The trader machines that are normally outside of most districts to let you repair/dismantle/etc are missing. It appears there is no dismantle feature at Yumi either. I'm assuming this is a bug as those machines are a huge QoL improvement so this should definitely be a priority to fix. UPDATE: I noticed the machines still exist in Dipluce Horizon and Ruin Fortress so they might only be missing from Grasscover Camp?
-Lupan's akasha card was added but there was no announcement. As of now it appears you can obtain the card via merging but it is unclear if Lupan is in the regular pool or a different pool like neo (yes neos still exist just not sold in the store at the moment). I tried opening 20 neos with no luck but that's a low sample size and have yet to see any confirmation if the card is in the regular pool either. It would be nice to get some clarification here. UPDATE: She was added in the Akasha of Blood shop item which says increased chance of Lupan but we still don't know if she can roll from regular trans?
-Chii can now obtain the Bellatrix and Chalice Bloom earrings from CR drops but if you held onto the class qubes (drops from Grutin World) Chii still cannot open those. Likely an oversight. I might file a ticket with support but probably worth mentioning here too.
-While most of the translations for the story are pretty good, there was some really confusing dialog that happens involving Lily where they keep referring to her as "he".
-In the announcement it states you can go to Maxim to craft more GCC boxes. The crafting menu is not at Maxim and is actually available through interacting with the book shelf.
-It was also announced next patch should have CR pt2 and Desireworker. Are these supposed to both be part of the same patch or will DW be afterwords?
-The 'Improvement improvements' are great QoL features. Glad to see this made it in. Think you guys could look into getting the dungeon replay button available to us as well? That's another really big QoL feature for anyone grinding a specific raid/district.
-Something seems awkward about the event tickets (SFL Coupons) pricing in the event shop. Raids only drop 1 per run with a maximum of 15 per character (that means 15 runs!). There are items like the pineapple candy which is priced at 2 tickets each. 2 entire runs for a single pineapple candy? That doesn't really make sense. Also the luxury scent items being 4 tickets a piece but resetting daily doesn't seem right either. Maybe this was intended but it feels very unbalanced compared to how these shops are usually priced.
Anyways that's all I got off the top of my head. Overall the patch is pretty good but we need those trader machines back!! Thanks
