Whats fucked about it?
It tracks every single chest all the way down to lowly supply chests in starter areas, that become locked for an hour after you loot them. Elite chest are just locked for longer in high level zones. There is zero difference beside the amount of time they are locked.
I am quite indifferent towards putting nodes on a personal timer like chests, but let’s atleast try and agree on how the game works currently.
And you have that opinion based on what?
