Two Archive Questions for you!

GravnosGravnos Member Posts: 105

1) Do we know if pages 3/4 are going to be Trapper/Claudette specific for the CHARACTER specific tasks??

2) I know there's a date for this Archive to end (roughly ~50 days from now) is that for the ENTIREEEE Archive "Set 1"? As in when page 4 releases ~40 days from now we're only going to have 2 weeks to do that last page??

    From what I know you will still be able to complete the archive set 1 even when it ends and get the bloodpoints you just wont be able to get rift fragments for the rift that's gone when it ends

    For 1, from what i'm seeing of the new challenges they're not... and it's just random, but you probably already know that by now.

    They most likely would have their lore pages with those specific Trapper/Claudette pages (Aka any page from the lore bit in those character specific challenges) but it seems to be that the lore pages can be achieved on any challenge... so that's debatable. But it's most likely since, why wouldn't you have their specific lore pages for their own specific challenges?

    It would be weird if Trapper had a lore page from Claudettes story, or vise versa.

    And for 2, that's for when The Rift ends, not the Archives itself. This tome will still exist for players to complete whenever they feel like it... that "55 days left" only applies to The Rift, which is what you spend your rewards from The Archives on.

    The Rift gives unique and ever changing rewards, and is reset every so often (Roughly 2 months+) to keep the rewards fresh! When that specific Rift ends, the rewards are gone for good! (Except the skins, they're released a few weeks after that Rift on the store, the Charms however are not and they're exclusive to that Rift only.)

    I thought the cosmetics in The Rift were exclusive and NOT coming to the store? Hence being in The Rift.

    Nope, they'll be coming to the store soon after that Rift closes. The Charms are the exclusive part to each Rift.

    That's kind of the only Exclusive thing from The Rift and The Archives... it's The Rift charms and that's it. The Archive charms are not Exclusive, they're just a sign of each tome and tome part completion.

    I'll have to dig through where I exactly heard this, it could take awhile. I don't remember if it was on the 3rd year anniversary thing, or a post or something.

    Most rewards will be exclusively available via The Archives for a period of time and released into the Store at least 6 months after their Rift has ended. More information will be provided at a later date. 

    Our goal is that everybody has access to the amazing content the team has created. Therefore, nearly all content from each Rift will eventually arrive in the Store. Of course, some seasonal items will wait until it makes sense again, such as our Halloween related content. We want to maintain the level of fairness we have strived for in Dead by Daylight–to create options for obtaining rewards that are respectful of our players.

    So, I looked through The Archives trailer and the 3rd Year Anniversary live stream and skipped to the parts about rewards and "exclusive rewards: and such. Unless I missed something I couldn't find any info on exclusives in-general, it's just that rewards are not Pay To Win, the Rift will close off the rewards when it ends, bla bla bla.

    But, I did find a quote from Peanits on the subject.


    "Some of the rewards will stay exclusive, others will be available in the store later on. Exclusive stuff always comes at the cost of leaving out anyone who wasn't there at the time, so we try not to do too much exclusive stuff. You'll get way more value out of earning them through The Rift than you would by buying them individually, though, and that's without even considering that you can make your cells back."

    While this doesn't talk about the skins, they have said in the past that they will no longer release exclusive skins to DBD, and or, it's not on their radar at the moment or in the near future.

    So, knowing that exclusive skins will most likely never return to DBD... we can deduce that what they mean is the skins on The Rift not being exclusive. I can't find EXACTLY where they said it was the skins that're not exclusive since it's buried under live streams and what not... so take what I said with a grain of salt.

    They've said also, that the charms in The Rift are exclusive to The Rift. So we won't see them in the store any time soon or at all. So by knowing this, we can basically say it's the skins that're not exclusive... and it's only the charms that're exclusive (Some of them at least, I don't think all of them all but i'm not 100% on that.)

    If you want an official statement, I can @Gcarrara and @Peanits to see if they can respond to it. They could be very busy though, so I can't promise anything.
