make this account wide so we can help those who love their alts...
I love people who complain about every nice added feature that doesn't specifically concern them. Of course, Korthia starter gear and WQ is not 230ish. It's not intended to be HC+ Raid or mid-to-high M+ Dungeon competitive quality. It's for the casual gamers who don't have the time nor the ambition to run those instances. Also, farming renown is not as hard a grind as some people claim it has. Quest that finish early campaign chapters grant two renown each. Catching up takes a couple of hours at most, since every other task rewards renown, such as covenent callings, World Bosses, dungeon Bosses, weekly stuff, Torghast runs and some more. Start of 9.1 a guildie tank moved my alt through some level 5 Torghast corridors for example. In about an hour, I collected 10 renown, ~4-500 Soul Ash and ~150 Tower Knowledge. Not too shabby a start.
This is going to be about as useful as rep gear. By the time you get to use the rep gear, you are way overgeared for it.
We're not at all late in the patch lol.
I agree that these are fairly nice for alts/returnees... but maybe less for adds, as you'd have to be really insane to play alts enough to keep up with the campaign. I don't even on a main.On the other hand, I don't understand the NEED to make ranges of gear sources. If you're ilvl X, you can get gear from A, B, C, D, E - and then slowly removing sources and DESTROYING engagement, the better you get... this leads to a player logging in for their raid, and realizing they are already there, because there was NOTHING for them to do since the last run.I really, really hate seeing options vanish.I also hate when I get a soulbound reward which was an upgrade half a year ago... feels like spit in the face, a ridicule.I also don't see how it would break the game if the rewards from world quests and the like would have itemlevel derived from, and set a bit below, the itemlevel of a given player. If it were so, you'd always have a chance to get something maybe subpar to top raids/instances, surely below your average, but still potentially useful and interesting.As it is, because of capping, those rewards eventually are just useless.And for upgradeable gear, like Korthia pieces, they could add a vendor that would buy these items up for some research. Don't really care how much, even 100 or 200 research for a piece would make a major difference - a spit in the face would change into something marginally, but useful.
Not every player started at launch and grinded since then,
can we have domination sockets into korthia gear ?
can somebody explain to me why i keep getting 35 anima for a world quest while i have max renown so i have unlocked all possible wq upgrades? it is only on my alts my main char gets 175, 210 anima per wq
