Devs seem to have had a complete turnaround on their thinking for this expansion than on previous expansion. From what I have seen RoS zones are too hard to group at level 105, with the zones aimed at being level 110 or close to level 110. So much for previous thoughts that levelling should be done in the new expansion zones (though I've not seen any exp nerfs for pervious expansions this time round) As far as I can remember other than epics and quest upgrades (Shawl etc) there has never been any need for previous expansion items to create gear in the newest expansion. I really dislike this idea, players shouldn't be forced to go back and do previous expansions to get current gear at least not without an alternative. The same goes for raids, while many of us suspected Seal of Charasis would be needed to raid in ROS if the first raids are in Overthere and Skyfire, why is it called Seal of Charasis? It would make more sense to need it to raid Charasis, but not needed for Overthere or Skyfire and have these zones also give seals for Charasis to help players who are behind to catch up. IF things stay as they are I would hope that they would change it to a full Seal granted with each EOK T3 win from ROS launch and a full Charasis backflag granted after completing a ROS raid.
