I would be fine with a long gear grind. Absolutely fine with it, so long as I knew that X effort would reach Y result at Z point down the road. I agree 4.0 was really abuseable in terms of BiS gearing, what with EV and KP HMs being in the highlighted HM weekly rotation. So the idea of slowing progress in that regard is just peachy to me.

That said, I am not at all fine with a random gear grind. I want to know that if I put effort in, I will get a reward. Just by the nature of probability and the bell curve sort of graph that forms from randomly generated results, some people may NEVER get even one piece of set bonus gear at any tier, while some may have BiS pieces showering down upon them. The fact that the amount of effort you put in has no bearing on how likely you are to get a good RNG result--because it's random by definition--is the part I object to.

The grind is working as intended. You can be assured that you will have completed both of your sets within the next three years. Well, not actually assured, but there's a good probability.

Have you tried sacrificing to the RNG gods? I hear they especially enjoy devouring spoiled kids who expect instant gratification a few days after the release of a major game update. Oh, wait...that describes...um...

You may want to hold off on the sacrifice thing.

Stop speaking in absolutes. Contribute to the O.P. or just move on. Don't try to throw in junk just to aggravate players.



Days aren't even the issue dude. Understand that point. It's Command Levels/Rank. The higher the rank, the more hours they've spent in the game.
If a rank = one hour of game play time, as has been stated previously, then CR 95 = 95 hours of play time. Same with CR 101 or CR 130.
To not have decent gear to show at that rank/play time is beyond ridiculous. It's sheer idiocy on the Devs part. Irregardless of what you think the player base wants or will do if they're geared up.
Gearing in simple set bonus gear, e.g. SM set bonus gear pre 5.0, shouldn't take 100+ hours of game play. HM gear & NiM gear, yes should take longer, but still nowhere near 300 hours of game time.
Because that's a lie made by the couple dozen forum warriors since they've been called out. The other day on the big cry thread 20 POSTERS had almost 200 out of 300 post!!! Oh yeah all the "new" poster lol

Yeah I'll post how and when I want if you don't like the FACTS I put out too bad. I see you are in all whatever the couple of dozen whiners on here tell you to whine about.

If you want to claim facts, bring proof. Otherwise it's just another opinion.

I know one guy who posts a lot in his very own whine thread...Aowin. Of course he's whining about people whining...well according to him at least.

I hope no one takes that advice and adopts your attitude. As things stand, one of you is quite enough, thank you very much.

Hmm really now? Show me that proof.
What big cry thread are you talking about? New posters = the ones starting new threads & when you check their history they've only posted maybe once since their account has been created. Not talking about the main forum goers. So you might want to ease up on that.

IF you put out facts, instead of emotionally charged responses, it might garnish a better debate. But instead you keep steeping to ad hominem attacks & general assumptions with no basis of facts around.
Your last sentence makes no sense either. Might want to fix that.

I'm one of those people showing up to the forums who don't usually post. I spent most of my 5 years with this game never touching the forums. I've seen other people posting on here whose post history shows they don't post here regularly either. So your 'facts' aren't all that accurate and you're the one spreading lies.

Well it's not like any of us have alts, or dual spec in content. /s

Seriously, how bad does this system have to become before you finally see that it's a hinderance, it isn't exciting getting yet another green earpiece when your crafted one is better (I've seen 3 so far, each one disintegrated).

The system is attrocious. I can't sum it up any better than that.

Thanks to everyone who has used my Refer a Friend link over the years, may the force be with you.

Here's what irritates the hell out of me, which I see as an upcoming reality for a lot of players.

A guy slogging through Tier 1. Ends up with a 230 Set piece bracer. does not get another set piece from Tier 1.

Hits 101 and is now working on Tier 2, RNG is with him throughout the Tier 2 grind, and he gets 3 240 set pieces, and nothing else.

Grinds all the way to Tier 3. The CXP levels are coming slower and slower, he finally gets a 244 set belt.

My worry, you have to intentionally gimp yourself wearing different ratings on your armoring (230/240/244) if you want a full set bonus, while trudging slowly through the last tier hoping you'll end up with replacement pieces for the pieces you already have with a lower rating, if you want to min/max your gear.

Yeah I wouldn't leave that to the pros, they were the ones that come up with this clusterf.
