Seems you’ll be able to upgrade 590-599 epics into 600 gear. Doubt they’ll upgrade to 600 “legendary” and roll a random perk. But this means your nearly BiS purples will no longer be useless.
However this raises the concern of crafting trophies. Will they be useless if you can upgrade a 590 with BiS perks instead?
This solves that in a way no? Before this only the rich could get BiS 600 legos to upgrade to 625 in mutations. Now your average player can get their 590-599s up aswell as start getting legos (which seem to drop very often) from mutations.
It’s not a fix everything update to this patch.
But it’s a tiny step to fixing a patch that a large group of players seem to dislike.
I know people would’ve preferred February’s Bugs, Bots and balancing patch this month instead, myself included, but this is what we got.
They’re obviously taking feedback and going to make changes so let’s make the best out of this patch if we can.
My thought would be how far can an average pre made group of 5, in discord, with 590-599 gear, with decent perks made for mutations go.
If they can’t even pass the first one then yes. The grind will be horrible and this change would be useless. But if they could get to say 3,4,5 even, maybe it won’t take too long to upgrade.
Getting gold on tier 1 got one item to 611 I believe, may have been tier 2. It was over the weekend
Which is true. But it’s far easier to roll a BiS epic than a BiS lego. If people find you can push to tier 10 in upgraded 590s than the need for legos go down wouldn’t it? Of course a BiS legendary is still highly wanted, but if you don’t need it, it won’t be worth the money.
