    I'm still waiting on them to bump up Voidwatch drop-rates so I can get a bloody Ogier's Helm.

    Should just make for a flat 25% minimum drop rate on everything that doesn't have an iLvl tag. Majority of that stuff is obsolete gear that only serves its purpose as a step-up piece, so there's zero justification for keeping it 'rare'.

    Lol I agree. Then maybe pulse cells will have a purpose to exist in AH.

    I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to slap +25 all stats to say NNI gear and call it a day. I must agree with Demon that the content they juuuust released is now irrelevant. Just saying...it makes sense. And yes, I know SE is very senseless....

    not really because the stat you should get leveling up are on the gear. diference between a lvl99 player with lvl99 and ilvl120 gear is not the difference with a lvl75player with 75 gear and toci but between a lvl75 in level75 gear and a lvl95player in toci

Thank you.
    how about the old but very nice Black Belt item?
    still lvl 75 one of the best items for years

    haveing old content die out isnt a wrong thing, some content is really so old it better should die. Keeping things fresh with new content is allways interesting.

    Kill some content, that's ok, kill nearly every bit of the content, not ok.

    Before Adoulin a number of events were relevant, now, every event that was done for gear is basically dead, instantly, because all of the new gear is so overpowered in stats thanks to trying to account for the level stat variance that nothing old is good. The only arguable good gear from the past are things like Rajas, Moonshade, or Brutal, things that give stats for the respective spot that you do not find that high elsewhere, and also have not been boosted by Adoulin in nearly the same way. But so far as I know, just about every head, body, hands, leg, and feet item, as well as nearly every weapon, have all been outdated by a very, very large margin. That, is a very large difference between outdating some content and all content die. For them to literally dump out 10 years worth of content and go with basically only Adoulin being relevant is basically saying if you do not like Adoulin, nothing added will ever be relevant to you again. Because so far as it seems, at this point, adding normal level 99 gear outside of Adoulin would be the same as if they added level 80~90 drops and gear while everyone was at level 99, just didn't happen.

    Old content should die out to make way for new content. Going back having to do some old content for a certain item that happens to be good is not fun. A lot of people won't want to do it because its old they already did it.

    Let the old stuff die make way for new content you haven't done yet. Works so well in many other MMOs, they are just trying to get FFXI up to date with the standard model of MMO gearing.

    Great in theory, but if you can't get a group to do old content for minimum gear requirements, you can't participate in the new content if you aren't there day 1. By outdating items by such a margin, it makes it harder and harder new players to catch up.

    Personally, I would like to see them add some more updates to Magian trial weapons. Not asking for boss drop ilvl, but it would be nice to continue growing these if you are unable to get a delve weapon.

    I thought that's why they added additional stats to Bayld/Delve gear. Anyone can earn Bayld easily now and buy Bayld gear. Just they need to fill in the gap to those who don't have REM yet.
