so, for fun i equipped the start up weapon we get when we create a new character...the adventurers pact blade (ilvl25)
killed the dockmaster in Avernus with no issues
killed Garyx and Mog several times with no issues
farmed 2 t1 lures and killed those hunt bosses -no issues
and just ran a Demogorgon doing 22million dmg...admittedly i came 3rd
i just find it bizarre that this should even be possible, the first weapon we get, in almost end game zones and it works just fine
a friend , who is a barbarian also tried it on his character and reported no issues on Valenhas mobs.
both of us only lost 200 damage rating...thats pretty moot when you're still 5975 rating.
any real point using lion or indeed any other set at all?
i think this is a bit of an issue.
meanwhile i think i will try levelling with the same weapon 1-80 and beyond, but ty cryptic...at least i dont have to worry about upgrading
