    Default Any respect for the old school TR'ers?

    Don't misunderstand me, I will thoroughly enjoy the shift in the xp curve and subsequent reduction in amount needed to cap. However, the amount of work it required me to achieve these lives under the conditions the TR system was first released leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.

    After all this, the developers still think that giving a free completionist feat is not a good idea...

    I hope these concerns are reasonable, and are worthy of dev reflection.

    Thanks

    I think XP getting easier to get, the amount of work lessened to level is a pretty standard mechanic across most MMOs.

    I wholeheartedly agree that completionist should be a free feat though.

    It should be a free feat, but for the rest, meh, not like it's much different than when otto's was released.

    Agreed re: Completionist. Mostly, for selfish reasons.

    Also, I feel like a divisive menace every time a post a build with Completionist in the feat list on the forums.

    Completionist is overpowered enough when you pay for it.

    The reward for doing TRs 3 years ago is having had the past life benefits for three years longer than someone that TRs tomorrow.

    Last I checked you all played an MMO which means the makers of the game will make the old things easier to get in one way or another. The completionist feat is an old thing; hence, it is much easier to get then when it came out.

    PL feats were giving more before EDs, so I dont see a problem with lowering xp when you gain less than before.

    I think the "respect for completionists" ship sailed when Turbine made it so that you could get it in a couple of weeks if you paid them $650.

    Yeah, this "ruined my accomplishment" thread is way too late. Stones did that. Sadly, "multi-life" and "completionist" mean little now in terms of accomplishment

    Hardly powerful, let alone "overpowered". Do you see non-completionists struggling along behind completionist in any of the content, or completionist doing that much better? We both know the answer to this. Hence, this invalidates any comment regarding how "overpowered" the feat is. In fact, its next in line to get scrapped afaic.

    You've got to be kidding, right?

    It's a nice perk, and a badge of honour, but hardly OP. Give it as an autogranted feat, already!

    The Completionist feat is nowhere near overpowered. It's barely worth taking since DCs scale so horribly in current end-game content.
