I know it seems like constant complaining, but this really is constructive criticism.
The Dragontouched armours are a real grind, made worse by the fact that people rarely run the chain any more because the quests can be a little annoying (too many puzzles, maybe? or painful end fights?).
But people might still face the grind if the Dragontouched armours were still relevant. This is level 16 armour we're supposed to grind for, even though the quest is more for level 18-19.
Really, it was probably great twink gear for a TR at one time. However, now, it's not really any better than random gen ML:16 stuff; not enough. And it can't compete with the ML:14 Dragonscale armours from Tor.
You need to tweak the numbers a little, throw in an augment slot or two, and spice up the Runes... in addition to adjusting the quest XP and the end fights with the Ellies and the Drider.
When anyone asks for help with this chain, the common response is "ugh." Please change that.
