1) Go to town
2) Tinker as usual (literally just normal steps, nothing fancy)
3) You lose crafting items, defender medals, and the original item; the mod is NOT on the new item.
Disclaimer: Again, as mentioned above, I SUSPECT this has to do with the 3rd slot that was forced onto my item when upgrading from mythic to legend.Expected Results: 1) Go to town 2) Tinker as usual 3) Actually have the desired mod on my new item.
UPDATE: so i've been asking around and other people do not seem to have this problem. Lots of my friends have upgraded mythicals to legends and have modded successfully in the additional slot. Therefore, here's my *NEW* theory: I happened to purchase my relic from another player (as a mythical) before i made it legendary. THEN I tried modding the third slot, and it didn't work: therefore, I'm guessing it has to do with the player market system as mythics you find my yourself (and upgrade) don't seem to have this problem
The issue is any mod slot that gets added via advancing doesn't fully accept the new mod that was moved. Keep the items around that you tinkered with as I believe it will work fix all of their current states when we release the fix with the next update.
Thanks you so much for the reply! Can I ask for clarification as to what exactly was the issue? Items modded via what?
Alright thanks! Has this issue been resolved? I saw Lawlta posting somewhere that it shouldn't be an issue anymore. I want to mod a relic that has been upgraded but I'm scared I might lose the mod...
Nothing has been resolved yet. Will be in the next update.
Note to everyone there are also issues with placing mods onto items after Upgrading/Evolving them. This has mostly been observed on Protean weapons. Might be best to hold off on tinkering until we push a fix if it is something you can't stand to lose.
Ok after some messing around I'm very convinced that this has to do with upgrading a mythic to a legendary. Since mythical items have 2 mod slots whereas legends have 3, when you upgrade your item an extra slot is added. This extra slot it seems is dysfunctional as of now. I can mod without any error on any other gear, but it seems that the 3rd slot of a legend that was upgraded from mythic is currently busted. Please fix this asap, Trendy!
