    Nope. Complete silence on the subject.
    Maybe we'll get them by the next waxing crescent or whatsoever, so that the description fits again. :P

    I really wish they would have run this longer than 4 or 5 days like the older ARGs. I got slammed at work and couldn't finish.

    Thanks dude! It is there. I still kind of wish they'd keep it open. Those are so fun to pick up and work through. I left that as feedback in the survey. That ARG team in particular is so good.

    I did notice the survey link on the mail and let them know they should keep it around longer. That team does such a great job at ARGs and especially how they integrate them into this game. It's a shame people don't get to enjoy them at any time.

    One thing I love about these ARGs is that I always learn something interesting. In this case it was the Tarot cards and system. It's not something I'm interested in and my only knowledge of it previously is that cursory knowledge you get from TV and motion picture media. It was interesting and debunked some "urban legend" notions I had about the system.

    What's the best way to level up those shadow weapons?  Any ideas?  Thoughts?

    Run your daily dungeons I'd say. I had a stash of weapon distillates sitting in my bank too from opening my daily caches (free patron keys), so those helped a lot.

    Thanks for the tip Azaron. I'm stuck without fusion components to upgrade at the moment. It's no big deal as I'm only about lvl 22 or 23.

    How do you do the fusion from 2 pips to 3 pips without buying the Aurum fusion piece?

    I don't think you can... =/
    Or if you do, it's still a mystery to me.

    Hopefully at some point they'll give one as an attendance reward or something. Or do some kind of event where you can earn one.

    I found this incredibly detailed and useful guide to gear and upgrading on reddit.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/SecretWorldLegends/comments/6kr224/guide_to_gear_and_upgrading/

    I was confusing some quality (tiers 1, 2, 3) and rarity (green, blue, purple, etc). Increasing quality requires aurum but when you consider fusion mechanics is a waste in all but the most rare cases. That would be I think when you get a rare weapon type with the best modifiers, but it's only Mk 1 or Mk II.

    Say you get a weapon or talisman with quality 1 or 2 and then level it to max and then you get a new weapon or talisman that is quality 3. Level it to max. Fuse the old quality 2 into the quality 3 and save the aurum. The only condition here is that the rarity (color) levels of the fused items must match. However their quality levels don't need to match in order to fuse.

    Doesn't work for the shadow-bound items unfortunately, since you'll never find an MK III version to fuse it with.

    Exactly. Funcom is gonna squeeze aurum out of anyone that wants those to go to Mk III. That did not slip by me unnoticed. I think they went the wrong way making them full on weapons and not skins, or at the very least adding them to the loot tables. Getting one for free is enough for me, now let everyone else try and get them. I'm not a fan of the exclusives.

    The rare weapon types that drop in dungeons seem like a mixed bag. The bonus on my current weapon affects my frost timer (2 sec delay) and I have to be even more careful when firing off my ice skills not to freeze my elemental bar in the overload zone.

    Hope we get an event which can earn one fusion.

    This game is so awesome! The quests the atmosphere. Tyler freeborn, that quest was soo fun to do.

    The fusion price seems a bit steep to me. It's 2500 aurum which is about $25. I think they got a decimal point out of place.
