To get all ED:s maxed, and to be able to pick any of them.
Previously, 11*1.5m (doable in one day of nolife farming).
Suggested, 11*1.5m (doable in 2 months of optimized farming or a week of no-life playing)
To get max twists
Previously, 11*1.5m (doable in one day of nolife farming),
Suggested, 6.6m (doable in a couple of days of nolife farming (at 5k/min it's 22 hours + what, another 10(?) hours for travel)
To get twists in all ED:s
Previously, 11*1.5m (byproduct, low twists open earlier)
Suggested, around 6m (extra work, have to put effort in, still takes way longer than the old rusted blades)
So, even with changes new players still have a much longer road to travel, how is that a downgrade? And oh the horror, upon reaching 20 after TR you only have a full destiny with a single twist, not max twists, cry me a river.
