The easy loot will kill the game (IMO)

★★★ Guide

Like it's killing World Of Warcraft, where Blizzard destroyed the sense of epic-ness by letting people get full epic on the first two weeks of every new content.

 

Most people that played from 15/02 are already full masterwork and I'm sure most of them will be full legendary in two weeks, no matter the inscriptions on the gear, purple gear tier is already dead and that's a part why people are not feeling any excitement when getting new loot.

 

How is Bioware going to deal with that ? adding more GM difficulties like in Diablo ?

Those who get full masterworks on 15 Feb are lifeless people who rush every single mission and skip cutscenes. Why care about them if you are here to enjoy the story.

 

On top of that, considering we need to roll bonus stats on Masterwork weapons for each Jav, I don't think a perfect set could be finished within weeks.

I disagree with the difference Inscriptions can make. If you have bad inscriptions that do not synergize well, then your gear is still sub par. No way anyone has perfect gear yet  or will have anytime soon.

Quite a few don't even know how auras, primers and detonators work still, so not too worried about people with masterwork gear.

Moreover to my comment above. If you want Bioware to nerf the droprate now, it's not a wise move because this act is punishing those who are actually going through the stories in detail, and those who have other important things like jobs to do in real life.

You should cause people will lose that excitement of getting something unique, which means the game is less interesting to play.

I wonder if you are one of those people who grinded The Division 50 hours in the dark (hack) sector, gained nothing but still call it fun.

epic or masterwork is just higher level gear.. its not more rare, more powerfull.. no its mandatory gear wich you need.. could just as well be named normall gear..

so dont act as if its special gear, because its not.

I like to add, I found my Rare Gear in Loot Boxes, and I was excited to find it. I go thru the list of inscriptions, add what helps my playstyle.  I still have a lower level Item, cause it boost X.
