I disagree with the changes that happened to MC gear in mod 15. It basically made all players efforts irrelevant to acquire the Primal, Pioneer, Sun, or Tyrant weapons. On top of that, artifact neck and waist from mod 13 and 14 become less desirable over the MC neck and waist gear; this includes MC2 as the older gear offers better stats now.
Honestly all the hard work and farming completed is once again a waste of time and resources. I'm pretty sure gear in mod 15 will be good for one mod and than come mod 16 new weapons, armor, etc... will once again be released causing us to swap out again. As someone who tries to keep his DC with nearly best gear this is becoming a nuisance and quiet frankly discouraging. I don't mind chasing the 4 primary pieces of armor for my character but needing to change weapons, neck, waist, and one or two companions almost every mod becomes a bit too much of a pain.
I would have preferred MC4 gear being released with the higher IL gear. That would have made more sense as MC3 gear is already in the game, close to a year old, and the stats of it should not be adjusted.
IMO, the constant changing is not needed. By doing this you are simply making it easier for character who should not be in end game have the gear score for end game. I feel as if the devs failed to understand their own game. Has any dev actually tried to play CR using random Q? I have and I see plenty of randoms that are 13-15K with no idea how to play their character because it is so easy now to reach end game IL? CR is impossible to beat because the randoms don't run the right gear they simply chase IL and this hurts the game.
Thanks for ruining any fun I had with the game now that I looked into what I may acquire for mod 15. And at this point, I am not even sure what I plan to chase the better gear given my disgust with most of mod 15 changes. The only thing I liked with mod was the CW and DO changes but even those are being outweighed by the sheer stupidity of the decision to increase IL/stats of older MC gear.
I was looking forward to staying around to see mod 16 but with looking into what I need for mod 15 to keep my DC, CW and GF relevant, I'm not sure what I will do at this point.
What are other players thoughts on the changes to MC gear. Do you like the changes or dislike them? Please share as I dislike the decision to upgrade older MC gear and no new gear being released.
