Wow.

This is pretty pointless. Destroying a BoP relic, to have a chance to be able to make the very same BoP relic, with abilities that don't stack if you put two of them on.

I was hoping this was an oversight that would be corrected in 2.2.

I can confirm this too. Since the announcement that we will be able to RE relics, we collected underworld relic tokens, so we could build the assault relic faster for the whole group. (Easy calculation: 14 player or more need it, chance of 1:5 to learn it). Our Artificer learnt it on second try (yay!)

Bad luck, its BoP, which seem pretty unlogical. Why would anyone redeem the token to get a relic and reverse engeneer it (he needs probably 5 of them), to learn the schematic. Then he can once(!) craft the relic again, spending a massive amount of credits, to get the relic, where he just had about 5 destroyed ... ?

Hello there Crafters!

Thanks very much for your reports! I have an update with regards to these bugs and would also like your help confirming the behavior of one of them on your end:

First, Arkanian and Underworld Relics should not be Bind on Pickup. This is definitely a bug, and we've fixed them to be Bind on Equip for Game Update 2.2.1.

Secondly, for the issue where Reverse Engineering Underworld Relics gives an error message and does not provide materials, we are finding in internal testing that the schematics are still learned upon successful attempts, and a success message is still given. If you're a player that has experienced this bug along with a successful schematic message, will you please post to tell us whether or not you're learning the schematic?

We appreciate any assistance you can provide with the question above.

I've had this RE error issue with Dread Guard relics and have not learned the schematics. I assume it would be the same. I have seen some people encounter the issue and still learn the DG schem though.

Unfortunately, the error bug occurs when Reverse Engineering Dread Guard Relics, period. My question above is regarding instances you get the error but also get the message that you've successfully learned a Schematic. We want to be sure that when you're told you learn a new Schematic, that you actually do! I've edited my message above to better relay that. Sorry for being unclear!

It's great these are finally being fixed but there have been multiple threads and bug reports on these and it has taken 1 1/2 months to get any kind of reply on this? This is something that should have been fixed a month ago.

Also, i had the dread guard issue yesterday, re-ed the item, got the success sound but only recieved red text. Luckily,another customer service agent replaced the relic and i RE-ed it again. Here is the video of the error.

Understood, thanks for clarifying!

Maybe I should make another thread for this, but is it intended that schems cannot be learned (No Research Available) from Arkanian relics sold by the vendor? (Not sure if it's true for Underworld as well.) DG/Campaign relics could always be learnt from the vendor versions.
