A meaningless 10 level increase without skill points serves only to reset the grind for progression folks and offers absolutely no benefit whatsoever other than to completely trivialize all the previous content.
    Honestly, they have to do a level increase. If they release more tiers without a level increase, it will just be silly, fresh 50s will be one shot by geared 50s and the gear grind will be massive. Because of the gear disparity between fresh 50s and raid geared 50s, ID gear was barely an increase. Think about it! It has to be done, there is no choice.

    Yeah for expansion...
    Bah for it being a paid one, I seem to recall having seen several different instances where they said they were only planning on doing free content updates, but I guess plans change. Hopefully it will only be like 30 bucks or so for the normal version.

    I could care less about gear. I'm talking about the sigil grinds. I want to play this game...not sit around for hours on end grinding currencies. I most certainly will not pay for an expansion that is going to make me redo a grind that took me about 5 months to complete. Not gonna happen.

    this is what i keep trying to say

    people, imagine, 4 years from now, tier 12, youve made a warrior for the first time.. do you really want to still be killing greenscale at level 50 to get tier 1 raid gear, to move onto HK, to move onto ID? in 4 years?

    to keep going and progress, there has to be a cap increase, as Muffinmans said, there is no other choice

    EDIT: Laeris, you will have to rebuild your sigils expansion or not, do you think that they will keep the same stats forever? no, eventually your sigil will be useless and have terrible stats, whether or not we have an expansion, there will come a time when you need to rebuild your sigil

    When can we pre-order, and when will we know the price of the collector's edition? Thank you so much Trion. This is EXACTLY what I was looking for in an expansion!

    Sure, it helps those who can't help themselves by allowing people with dropped green lessers from Rifts to be able to go back and retroactively do things like HK... but those of us who already did the work... we get penalized and now have to spend countless more hours farming up god knows what kind of currency to rebuild all of our sigils and source engines again for no reason. This is is just plain insulting.
    As much as I like the new stuff, I agree with this. A level increase is a huge mistake, it's no more then a gear reset. Probably will be a new tier of sourcestones as well, all the work they put in Ember Isle will be pointless, it will just be a stepping stone to the new zones. Maybe they do a different approach, but any MMO I played, a level increase was just plain pointless. There are other options without making all previous content and gear pointless :/

    I hope they will do it right though.

    Why not? Do you only plan on playing for 30 days or something?

    Awesome. Only thing I didn't like was the 10 level jump. I don't mind leveling but it kills all the current experts and raids. and does reduce a bit of playable content. Is there some sort of plan to address that or is that content just going to be outdated?

    This Fall?
    Make it end of Oct for my bday plox.

    Also, this needs a CE with a turtle. But maybe in the form of the new mage-tank-turtle-shapeshifting-soul...

    Just saying.

    And for rogue ... make bard funnier!
