    Removeable skill shards

    Just like talisman ! With nerfs and new characters coming out I can't choose were to put my skill shards. What if I put them on a lesser guy and then I regret it . Or I simply get bored with a toon and want to play with my other guys. Also you could see just how good a character would be before you commit to spending those rare gems.

    it would be nice if we could chose which skill they upgrade rather than it be random

    Not a totally insane idea, or a way to reset skill shards.
    Perhaps a way to pay ironite and reset all skill shards or refund them from a chosen character. It could even be expensive just as long as it is possible.
    In that case it would be preferable is skill shards were automatically refunded for character who get major tweeks in an update as well.
    None of this is impossible and would help players to dare to try new ways of playing the game.

    I love this idea. When I first started last year I put a bunch of them on my Run to the Hills Eddie. I don't use him, would be cool if you could slot them back out like the talisman

    I say you should be able to remove them from a character for the same amount of gold you would get if you sold one of them from your inventory. Which is 1,000 gold pieces... Fair is fair!!!

    It would be great to have this but I fear that it is one way to keep us playing troopers and buying SS...or compete in events with SS included. It is a good way for them to keep the money coming in. My compromise would be that we get a set amount of SS resets each week - even 1 a week would help!
    Missing the following characters (well the ones I want!):

    Samurai Emperor Eddie - Lone Star - Mystic Flame Eddie - Thor Eddie
    Krampus - Minotaur - Cosmic Shinob - Plague Doctor Harpy - Valhalla Maiden - Madame Fortune

    "We oil the jaws of the war machine and feed it with our babies" - Two Minutes to Midnight - Powerslave

    The other problem is that a skill shard doesn't go back into your inventory if you sacrifice a character who has been upgraded with one. All the talismans do but the SS disappears completely with the character - I found out the hard way with a Sentinel Rock Golem that I'd upgraded during the Beta last year.

    Just a crazy idea: you can remove a certain amount of skill shards per week? I fully sharded my defence in PVP but now I'got new toons and have a new idea for a defence. The problem is, if I want my new defence sharded it will take about 3 months to get the 36 shards necessary! That is insane.

    Why not make e.g. 5 skill shards per week removable. That would bring the 3 months down to one! It would also allow everybody to experiment way more with their pvp defence and hence make the game more exciting.

    I too agree NF should put some kind of system in place to remove skill shards. They are way too hard to come by for the most of us players and usually us new players put them on the wrong toons to start.

    Make it expensive
    Make it limited per week
    make it randomly removed like when we use them

    It takes way too long to collect enough to shard an Eddie, I still don't have a fully sharded Ed and only 3 troopers are fully sharded for me. Either that or make them easier to come by, it seems like I get one every other week maybe 3/month currently.

    I love the idea to remove skill shards, but sadly in the past this idea has been shot down several times. Not sure if NF will ever budge on this one. If they were removable people would experiment more with what seems to be useless toons. I think back to when I thought Warrior Possessed rockets were a waste of time and... BOY WAS I WRONG!!! Would love to experiment with new toons, but I'm not going to do it unless I know it's a good deal!
