I've been finding Bard unfun to play, and had decided to LR into a 18/2 Fighter. Right now, this would only require a single +5 heart, as I'm 5/2/1 Currently (Specifically, I'd be going from 5Bard/2Fighter/1Rogue to 7Fighter/1Rogue).
Instead, I find that Turbine has set the minimum level of these to such that I would have to buy two +3 hearts to do what 1 +5 would do had they not set the minimum level so high. There is no reason why I or anyone else should have to buy two hearts for this purpose; it's +5 not +10 hearts we're talking about.
I am already eating the cost of TRing into a build and role I ended up not really liking, and eating the cost of LRing into something else. Now I either have to gimp myself for three levels in order to not be forced into doing something that is completely unnecessary in the first place, or pay double the costs to change the build. WHY?
There is absolutely no reason changing 5 levels out would require you to have 11 levels to start. It's not like I'm getting a past life here.
