    ...from earlier this morning:

    It doesn't say explicitly whether that's for the TLE servers (which I would expect) or for all of us, for some unfathomable reason. Frankly, I like the "early game progression" in the ordinary servers, and wasn't even remotely nostalgic for the old "early game progression" on the TLE servers (or, it must be said, any of the rest of it on them, but at least we don't have to slog through subcombines again, thank the gods). :-/

    Unfortunately, Uwk, it looks like the re-itemization is on the regular servers as well. I was looking at some level 1-40 gear I was pricing to sell today, and the stats quite literally completely suck now. They didn't used to. It's funny, because there's a sudden huge jump at level 60 for gear stats.

    I'm going to guess that they're going to "fix" the itemization for later levels as well, as the new TLE goes up, so those sucky stats are going to follow our characters upward.

    They re-itemized it to the higher stats for the last TLE, now they're itemizing them the opposite way. :confused:

    Okay, so the question now is: what, o Devs, was WRONG with the stats before? Your favorite flavor of white level critters were dying too fast, and us too slowly?? >:-/

    What's so special about the TLE servers (that we can't transfer off of, yeah?) that the rest of us have to match them?

    Hmm...it's probably the casual players that use the Handcrafted, even Mastercrafted stuff other than just what they can get off an instance or if they have enough money (or can take out a substantial loan) to get stuff out of the Broker? Is this an attempt to muck about with the casual players and mess them up? Or to force soloers to at least molo, if not group outright?

    I guess I'm still just trying to figure out this rationale. :-/

    I noticed this when I had my 42nd level Inquisitor in Deathfist Citadel, and realized that half my gear had had its level change (up to 50), and I was no longer wearing it. I went back to my guild hall and looked in my stash of saved up items (to use as I leveled), and saw that a large portion was now wearable, and all of it had the stats reduced, by half or less.

    Items that are Legendary are the same (or nearly the same) as Treasured items. Mastercrafted items used to be better than Treasured, but are now the same, or worse. All very confusing.

    I thought that items needed rebalancing (especially in the case of older zones, for example Lavastorm loot was always a lot worse than comparable items from other zones), but this wasn't how I thought it would go. WTF?

    No sub-combines even though I loved them!!!! The adventure experience is good, its fine, its perfect!! The tradeskill experience, not so good, not fine, not perfect, you run out of vitality after about 5 item creations and there is no hand of the maker, so after that it crafting with no vitality which is slogging through quicksand.

    Don't get me wrong, Cy, you know I love you, but in this, we have massively differing opinions. In a way, it's okay that the adventure XP is like HALF of what we'd be getting on a real server (subcombines still suck, always have, always will; it's the primary reason why I NEVER did anything with crafting back in the day), since that way, the tradeskill XP might be able to stay on par with it. ;)

    I'm still confused as to why the Powers decided to screw over our equipment down to TLE standards. :-/

    O no Uwk Subcombines were awesome I loved them too. Plus you could make decent money on the broker selling all the oils and resins and what not to other people who either didn't have that crafter of was too against doing them they would rather buy. I used to rake in the cash with subcombines one of the reasons I started with 9 tradeskillers.

    The equipment, I have no idea. It is not even good for the levels it is supposed to be good for.

    The return of subcombines would only make sense, sort of, if they also brought back the different tiers of items based on how far the progress bar got before the item was completed. One bar? Crude item. Two bars? whateveritusedtohaveasaprefix? Three bars? yetanotherprefix. Four bars? Pristine and the best that item can be. Personally, as a carpenter, I hated all the subcombines and didn't get past 19 until that hot mess was removed.

    I see with the update notes for tomorrow they are not addressing the LVL 1-50 re-itemizations they did for the non-TLE servers.
