Add more ways of obtaining Compressed Darkness than just Gate of Darkness (GoD). Old GoD materials were pretty much useless, but the new Darkness Orbs actually do have a use, and that is the consumables. Those are especially important for Luciel and Ara. On officials, the rest of the cast can just ignore the pots, and Ara and Luciel get their daily pots. But here, Ara and Luciel players will have to choose if they want the potions or Seraphims/Newts, all of which are important for endgame content. It's even worse because there is a daily limit. That means it's not proportional to how much you play. If you farm for a few hours a day it's not very sustainable to be limited to 60 pots of the kind a day. And now consider you have to get Seraphims and Newts on top of that. Even if we consider the reduced exchange rate that seems to be coming soon, that's still only 10 Newts a day, or 5 Newts and 30 pots. It's pretty obviously kinda rigged against Luciels and Aras.
IMO it would be best if there were more ways to get Compressed Darkness itself, instead of just limiting how much you can get per day. Right now people still have stacks from old Henir exchange, but it might cause problems in the long term.
I'm sure comments will have some good ideas too, but for now I'm considering: (will add it if I see something I like in the comments)
Replacing some of the trash items that just fill up inventory in Treasure Chest / Arena Cube / Ice Burner (for real there r too many) with Compressed Darkness.
Exchange for other farmable materials, like Barrier's Fragments, Energy Shards, or whatever Heroics use.
Exchange for Treasure Hunter coins. Probably the best one as the current exchange is useless. (Just like old GoD materials.) And these are proportional to how much you actually play.
(Optional) Add all of the elixirs to the Darkness Ticket Exchange, reduce the exchange to one ticket, remove Wonder Drug Cube, remove the elixirs nobody uses from the exchange.
(I'm imagining omething along the lines of: all 3min except Newts; Soul of the Pursuer; Agaur's Ice Pearl; Big Bang Explosive. Might not be good idea to remove them in case of future content, but idk if the exchange can fit that much)
And finally, make us obtain only Darkness Exchange Tickets instead of Compressed Darknesses. Oh, and make the Darkness Exchange Tickets tradable. Or not, however u implement it.
Also, if you don't implement the second suggestion, please at least make Wonder Drug Cubes tradable. There r a lot of people that don't wanna open this just because it takes 8 inventory slots. The Compressed Darkness (which contains it) itself is already tradable, so I don't really see a reason why not.
If u have any more ideas about this custom system, feel free to comment, I'll try to add them. Tho I won't be able to make a poll for them, so if you see something you like the sound of in the comments, react to it please.
