So I've started playing after a 7 month or so break. I notice that the new quests, the new zones, and the new gear no longer uses the HORRIBLE shard/seal/scroll system.
In fact I don't see any of that in most the new content.
Are we to assume all that gear is mothballed, and that system of attaining the "epic" items is no longer?
If so, I'm glad to see it go. I never got a single piece. Same with the old green items. Another setup of huge grinds, and just random luck to see if you get items.
Is there a plan to finalize their death, and just hand them out upon 6th completion, or something to get rid of the last bit of that loot system?
