Oh yeah! I forgot to specify it was the RNG protection bug ><
Thank you for pointing that out!

Thank you for doing this, hopefully the devs will reply to it.
I guess I should have chosen to 100% FFXIV back in the day instead.

My experience is that the RNG protection is working, for a special definintion of working. (This... bug? feature? was also present before 7.0.)

The thing is, all SoW setpieces have two variants in the game. One that was sold by vendors (the unmodded one) and one that used to drop from content (the modded one). The game considers these to be completely separate items (to the extent that unmodded items didn't count for the achievements for a very, very long time.) The bad news is, you cannot tell by looking at a piece whether it's the modded or the unmodded one (again: it only matters how you obtained it, not whether it has any mods in it at the moment).

Duplicate protection only considers the modded (i.e. random drop) variants of these items.

If you get something from Kai, store it and you should not get it again. Yes, this means you might have to rebuy large chunks of your sets, depending on how much of your collections you got from the gear vendors in 6.x.
Faction imbalance is the scientific term for saying player skills mature at a later age than that of the intended audience of a certain faction.

wrong, I had the modded version of a set piece equipped (and yes, I got it from a crate - aka random drop) and guess what, I got it again from Kai... and again, so no, it is definitely NOT working

I haven't personally experienced any duplicates, but that does not mean they don't happen.

Anyway, I still think it's important to explain precisely how duplicate protection works (should work), because I'd bet a larger amount of credits on that a majority of these reports are complaining about this erratic behavior and not an actual bug.

JackieKo,

Thank you for responding to posts and providing updates, it’s much appreciated.

For those of us trying to finish the Spoils of War gear sets for either the title unlock or cosmetic use in outfitter it has been difficult to say the least to obtain pieces we’re missing with the amount of sets available, RNG protection not working, inventory/equipment space available. Would it be possible to tie the RNG protection to the Feats of Strength > Equipment Sets so we could finish these without the current frustrations brought about since the 7.0 update? Perhaps you have other suggestions on how to finish these? I’m missing 1 piece out of a couple sets that would have been obtained during the rotation around January 2022 and when he stopped selling gear prior to the 7.0 update.

Your response would be greatly appreciated to shed some light on the situation.

Best regards,
Jacen



Update: As of 5/4/2022 the RNG protection for the Unidentified Onslaught Set Bonus Gear is not working. I received helmet of concentrated fire even though I have 2 in inventory (one is augmented). Bug report created. @JackieKo #JackieKo
