After months of grinding Expeditions on 2 characters i finally decided to write up a post here...
Im sure most players met with this, you run expeditions and turn in currency to ZOK vendor hoping for that or the other companion equip piece and all you get is something you either dont want or you got it 5 times already.
The stardock campaign box unfortunately only grants the 12k stat comp gears so we are left with the need to grind MEs/WEs for ever, possibly until another source of companion gear appears.
If this is just an attemt at prolonging the contents lifespan its utterly unpleasant and unenjoyable, but if its an overlooked deficiency of rewarding system, then i think its time we get an UM companion equipment vendor. Implementation could be very simple, the companion gear you have could be changed into a currency which would be used to buy any of the companion equips. This way you still have to run Expeditions, but you get an actual sense of progression, knowing that in the end you will get what you farm for.
