Causes me to have half as much pen as I do crit in Tiamat, or similarly my stats were messed up in SPC.
In SPC I was having huge swings in damage output. I hit for 200k with a power one shot and 10 or 20k with the same power in the next shot. I didn't look real close at my post-"balanced" stats there but then I did tiamat and again my damage was all wierd. I didn't even make the top 5 in DPS so I looked and sure enough, my pen was 19k and my crit was 35k. Prior to "balancing" they are both at about 90k.
How can I navigate this crazy environment of balanced content? In the past I have entered a dungeon private and solo to test and see how I was being balanced and how i performed. Why should I need to do that? I also used to keep 3 sets of equipment to balance myself before entering a dungeon. I am not gonna do that again. I might keep a piece of extra equipment or two for situational use but even if I tailored every one of my chars to each possible dungeon, the next day someone would complain I was too effective and the Dev team would alter the balancing formula (like they have done before)
Why aren't there tiers of dungeons any more? I.e. demogorgon begginner, demogorgon intermediate, demo master. Don't let 35k IL people in demo beginner. Problem solved.
