    I've started upgrading my items... its definitely a bit of a learning curve, but in the end it looks like it is simpler than before which is good. Less item clutter.

    I've got a head full of cold but I had a quick look this evening before I ran out of steam/motivation and here are a few of my thoughts.

    The very steep learning curve for an old gamer like me was a bit off-putting and I almost gave up! I've had legendary weapons since Mines of Moria was released in 2008 and I had got myself into a spot with mine where I knew what I was doing and I was generally happy with what I had.

    Took me 30 minutes to get started and it would have been nice to have a tutorial type mission to help with the first one.

    Because of my English-ness I was hindered by Cordovan's directions:

    Originally Posted by Cordovan

    I completely failed in that I forgot that Cord is American and refers to the ground floor as the first floor... I got terribly angry running around what I call the second floor looking for a room that didn't appear to exist. And judging by the number of other people running in and out of the Hall of Rest, I was not alone in getting confused by that! Luckily someone else asked for directions in chat and a helpful American pointed us in the right direction!

    Took another 30 minutes to sort out a bow and I probably wasted some of the barter currency I had obtained from my old and [now] obsolete legendaries buying the wrong things while I experimented.

    That being said I ended up with a very nice bow, doubling my DPS when compared to my previous one, with all the agility, vitality and critical multipliers that I like to have and a few extra sparkles like evade rating and finesse. Looking forward to sorting out my sword when I feel up to it, so I am loving the less random aspect of this new system.

    Edit: Just realised I've got to go through all this all over again with all my other level 50+ characters! Unamused

    To be fair - half an hour to significantly improve our LIs does not seem too bad (compared to how long Ive spent grinding Anfalas scrolls!) - but a tutorial mission would have been great. Just a hint: don't slot the _same_ thing on your other LI, I'm not sure if it goes for every tracery and rune and thing, but unique ones go across LIs. I slotted one AOE damage ... rune? on both my weapon and class rune, and it wouldnt let me equip both LIs because of it. Had to overwrite the rune? tracery? I forget ... with a new one.

    If anyone is confused about the system and wants to read up, here is an extremely helpful guide to the new system.

    It took me a while to get everything sorted out (and an Excel spreadsheet where I noted doen traceries and stats I wanted to use) but in the end I think it simplifies the LI system a lot (and yeah, I use LIs since their introduction in Moria ages ago). Besides, I main one of the lowest DPS classes currently (Lightning RK) and my 430 level traceries cut through stuff like a hot knife through butter. It actually feels pretty great Big Grin

    Misdirection is the key to survival. Never attack what your enemy defends, never behave as your enemy expects and never reveal your true strength. If knowledge is power then to be unknown is to be unconquerable.

    Still settling into my new job, but I’ll probably look into it when I’m on leave next week. Need to look at my RKs LIs…
