The Division

Division players that have been procrastinating making use of their excess crafting material have until tomorrow to jump on that ship before it sails away – or at least, becomes more difficult to board. Ubisoft has designed their most recent patch in a way that aims to emphasize loot drops and decrease player’s reliance on grinding materials.

As detailed by Ubisoft, materials currently operate at the following exchange rate:

  • 5 Standard (Green) for 1 Specialized (Blue)
  • 5 Specialized (Blue) for 1 High-End (Gold)
  • 8 High-End (Gold) for 1 High-End Level 31 (Gold)

Post update, they will operate as follows:

  • 10 Standard (Green) for 1 Specialized (Blue)
  • 15 Specialized (Blue) for 1 High-End (Gold)
  • 10 High-End (Gold) for 1 High-End Level 31 (Gold)

Items currently break down into two material; post update they will only give one. The flipside to this is that the drop rates of named NPCS will be increased – to 100%.
