    Default Is there a reason for level 25's to run the cove?

    There are no upgrades to the items, they added level 24 mobs to Smugglers Rest but did not add any level 24 items except a rune arm. Is this an oversight, or an early build to lama?

    if there is no change to how XP works, legit xp farming, and greenshard hunting for other characters.

    I'm *hoping* there's still more items to come. I noticed new gem types "above" diamond and emerald in the list of stuff required to upgrade the bottomless drink, so hopefully that's supposed to be the ingredients for the L24 gear. Would love to hear Dev respond to this though.

    If there is one level 24 item, there will probably be more. I really doubt they would go to the effort to make just one lvl 24 item.
    The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get old ones out. Every mind is a building filled with archaic furniture. Clean out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it.

    Cooldown is 5 minutes on the highest tier, that's not too bad.

    It's not bad but not remotely a game changer. Would say it's a pretty balanced item, if not on the expensive side grind wise.

    This is my biggest issue at the moment.

    Guess I don't feel like I would be getting my doubloon's worth grinding out that item.

    I don't know about that. My healer is just level 10 after a TR yet (sadly), but I would run Cove for the experience and also to get the shards for getting the rum drink. I want that for all my toons, including my healer.

    If there are level 24 versions of the Cav Plate and the Buccaneer's Ring then that would be enough for me to run it on my Clerics. Although I'll probably run it anyway, since it's easy for Clerics to get accepted to Cove runs

    The runearm has a reflex save, so it's pretty poor. There are no level 24 versions of anything on lam.

    The potion is the only btc item I believe.
    Though by all means correct me if I'm wrong.

    So no reason not to run it on your healer or whatever, shards can be used by any toon for any item.
