But the disparity of how much more they have I just don't think is worth decking ones self out in that gear.

    Because then you will have to pay more attention to real crit chance items. CP is our new hot feature itemized stat, the biggest blunder someone could make is to destroy their crit chance when it is being offered at levels allowing us to take it over 1k in PvP settings.

    I said it when boxes first came out. It is cool because they will allow us to cater our toons performance much more in tune with how we desire it to be. But I also said the cool part that will unfortunately occur, is since gear up is free will, these boxes have given people the opportunity to use free will to actually make their toon worse off. Naw, you couldn't go wrong when there was only 1 option. But now, you can go very wrong and some do >.>

    The ~only~ time I even use the gear with no secondary stat is on my alts (mage/war) to just get the 4pc synergy bonus or to fill an essence slot. The second I get the currency to get an item with main/secondary stat, I'm ditching that piece.

    It's not even worth it just to gain a minimal amount of endurance in comparison to the default PVP pieces and the BIS CP/SP/AP Depleted pieces.

    This is exactly why I dubbed the gear that is missing the secondary stat "ghetto gear". I agree though, only time I would use it would be drastic measures (like you said, getting a 4pc) or if I am really replacing a god-awful slot.

    Like I said, you can get away with doing it with 1 or 2 pieces IMO. But make a habit of it and I don't have much faith in the results.

    I wouldn't mind more cosmetics. It actually just dawned on me. Since most ppl seek them out for performance items, it would be cool for those who simply want cosmetic items, or those who have done their main performance item progression, to opt to have a higher chance to receive some unique cosmetics. They made a unique mount, surely they could make unique cosmetics. I just wouldn't want it to take place of the real loot people seek. Perhaps just make them an additional drop chance instead of the twisted way I came up with.

    What I would like is that with every box I open that consists of useless manastones, to receive an additional note that says "We're sorry".

    Seriously, that is the most useless PoS ever. Also, how many mage sets are there because only two pieces seem to be worth using out of two plus sets so far, weapons are the worse. Trading the wrong traits imho.

    i want them to disappear, idk i dont work in the real life to put my money in scratch tickets i prefer not to do the same in an MMO. give me a goal for progression and let me earn it with skill and time played not luck

    crates should drop cosmetics and cosmetics only for cool funny wardrobes that people can spend money on if they want. that, mounts and dyes. nothing that improves the play of your character

    The consumables are spiffy thought. Fancy having an extra 15% run speed (WL insoles).

    Remove the BIS gear and Runes/Trinkets, replace them with new mounts every month, new wardrobe items, chance at high end dyes, ECT. Trions biggest profit off the cash shop is dimension builders and fluff buyers anyway, people would still buy the boxes.

    This lottery style of gearing up for pvp is atrocious. GL keeping returning players and new players when 3.0 comes out, "oh this crap is still in the game? see ya"

    I'm not against lottery style drop. It makes opening crates much more exciting. The problem is that warlord "starter" gear and high-end runes/essences are all bundled in the same crate, and therefore made available for both marks or credits. I'd rather see two types of crates, one with catch-up gear, available for marks or credits, and another with high-end stuff available for marks only.

    Got a RIC from weekly patron gift. How's that for RNG. I feel dirty

    You should have more RiCs than you can use anyway.
