Additional feedback As veteran players close in on completing their heirloom collections with a little bit of friendly competition, it was noticed that no one has the Tinkerer II or Tinkerer III heirlooms. And many don’t have Tinkerer I.

All of the new careers from the Waterfront had their heirlooms added to the store, and cost 50 rare purple life tickets. Or they have been available via retirement chests.

 

The Tinkerer heirloom was not added to the store, and it has not been unlocked via retirement chests.

 

Any player who received the Tinkerer I trait completed the It’s Just Rocket Science Advanced Quest, which was offered nearly a year ago on October 11, 2018. All this time since that date players have assumed that the Tinkerer   Heirlooms were available in the store or from retirement, but it has not appeared to be the case.

 

I believe the heirloom’s appearance in the store or from retirement chests is bugged, or was forgotten to be added to the store/chests.

 

(Or... quests for the heirlooms were intended to roll out to players and they never came.)

 

Players who were not around last October have never had an opportunity to receive this trait because it does not exist in the store, and was not added to retirement chests.

I got Tinkerer I from the purple box, Attuned I from the store, and while I don't have Athletic, I have at least had it offered to me at the store. I think Tinkerer II & III don't exist, and Attuned and Athletic aren't available from the retirement or regular chests.

That sounds about right from convos I had after posting this. Another player I know got Tinkerer I from a chest. 

 

There are no reported players in any of the communities I’m a member of who have received Tinkerer II or Tinkerer III at all.

I have Tinkerer I but never competed the Rocket Science quest, and I only started playing in March/April. I don’t remember how I got it, but I would assume a chest or retirement, as I only recently started buying traits I don’t have when offered in the store.

Thanks — I noted this further down in the thread after learning another player received Tinkerer I the way you did. Still, there are no reported players of receiving Tinkerer II or III.

@simmerdownMAL has the Tinkerer Heirloom found its way to the game or is it still missing?

@Phantomlover1717 It’s still missing. I know no player with Tinkerer 2 or 3 in the game.
