because thread got shut down while i was writing this novel of a post:
Hey man, I have to side with darc on this, although i will say a large majority of the pbase would just straight up get handled in epic elite, those that can complete it consistantly and without resources get insane gear..every run.

I opted for a scepter to give dave with 114 radiance spell power, efficient max I, greater necro focus and i think a effin superior lore. oh and +15 implement universal spell power. There was a scepter that came close to being ideal for my toon but it was 108 spell power...This is random lootgen gear from completing a single quest. Yes it was knarly hard honestly. Some resources where consumed, but now im staring at a list of caster items that take all the named gear id gathered over the past years of pretty stinkin hardcore play and toss it out.
That means if I get no better at running the quest and it takes my sorc 3-5 maj pots per single epic elite quest completion, I can have at least 4-5 outstandingly powerful items with 2-3 hours of play and a very small stack of major pots.
I remember I spent much much longer than that in crystal cove grinding grinding grinding for those green dragonshards. And THAT got blasted for being WAY too fast for newbies to get epic gear, and not much of the gear was very good compared with traditional epic gear.
I will say though I do feel positive personally that I can play in a forgotten realms world. Its what DDO has lacked for me personally since i first played it.
Thanks for continuing the conversation.

I was really starting to dig what Darc was saying and suddenly the thread was locked. Did not see any reason for the lock. What forum rule was broken? Just because he may have been turning a tide in people's reasoning for remaining here? That, would be just another straw on the camel's back.
preempting the reportable offenses that were likely to follow as they do in pretty much every /ragequit thread.

Heck try raging against AT&T on one of their forums and see how long those posts last.
Reopening a closed topic is not allowed. "I quit" threads sometimes historically lead to forum violations and other problematic behaviors that make our forum community a less welcoming place, so we will sometimes close them before or when they get to that point with a message to the OP wishing them well in all future endeavors.
