Something I have just noticed with SR Waystones.
I am not a great fan of the endless waves in SR, but for something different to try, I took one of my level 100 Ultimate chars and tried to see how this SR actually worked without getting killed every other second by running it it Normal mode.
I had a shattered waystone at the vendor from a previous character that let me start from level 5.
Long story short, It was a “cake-walk” to level 15 (but also surprisingly quiet time consuming) with this overpowered character to get to the level 15-25 SR shard I was looking for. I noticed that once I got this level shard, the merchant still had only ONE shard to offer, but now it reads as level 15-25, and it seemed that ALL my Normal characters could purchase it.
My question … is the shard level purchase dependant on a SINGLE shard that is based on the last best level achieved by your character SR level?
I did verify that in Ultimate my character could still only purchase the level 5-15 level one, so the SR shards are definitely compartmentalized by character level, but seem to be valid for ALL characters of that level?
Sorry if I sound confused, it is because I AM.
I thought from the original notes that you could purchase shards of different levels from the vendor.
ie. Level 5-15, 15-25, 25-?? etc.
I am seeing that there is now ONLY ONE shard that seems to be global for all characters of that level and it seems to be the last highest level shard you have earned.
Is this correct way the SR shards work?
As I said SR is not really my cup of tea, but exploring it with an overpowered character in normal intrigued me as I wanted to see if opening shards up at Normal carried through to Ultimate. (which I established it does not)
I don’t play this mode often, but what would happen with the above if my SINGLE purchasable shard in the vendor is now 70-85 for example and I just want to play level 20?
I could be way off line here, but I am only seeing ONE shard in my vendors for Shattered Waystones.
How does one select the start level for SR in this case?
