I know this comes up every expansion but as a Caster it's worth preaching about. It even effects things like this POW threads https://forums.station.sony.com/eq/index.php?threads/beat-pow-tonight.213632/page-2 where people talk about currency desire. But because of game design, I'm a caster sitting on 300+ currency and while I could go spend it for a tiny AC/Stat upgrade, I just haven't bothered knowing it wont matter so soon. Now if they removed Focus Decay, or raised T2 focus levels since T2 was out for such a little time period. Then I'd care about T2 gear.
