I spent some time yesterday rearranging my gear so I could finally use the L1000 Ring reward received for killing Argus. Doing World Quests this morning came the realisation just how much gear inflation is obvious when you look from the start of the Expansion to where we are now.
I went to kill Falcosaurs and Moose in Highmountain and, quite literally, one shot was all that was needed to wipe them out. I failed to reinstall damage meters after my UI cleanup (something I will fix later) but there is no need to see there’s been an increase. I can feel it. Plus, with the final trait and full Netherlight on this character… well, ilevel 935 is more than enough to just wipe out anything in the World. I feel this should have been done sooner, but there’s been a lot to settle with Guild moves and character changes. Plus, now this part of my life is officially a hobby, it doesn’t seem nearly as important that I’m over-geared.
Now comes the slow process of maxxing Professions, and saving money to transfer all my alts off my old Server. Part of me is considering splitting the load between Argent Dawn and a second, unnamed location where I can now quietly slum anonymously. I’m happy to be known in some places now and not in others. The first stage is transferring the main Vanity Guild I have on Shadowsong, which will be organised next week. I have a few ideas of where I would like to go too and will investigate further once I’ve done the work needed to keep me happy. If I can make money with each point of Enchanting, that’s the way forward. This reminds me, I need to make a Vanity Guild on Argent Dawn…
There’s always so much to do and never enough time.
