As I inch ever nearer to my xp cap of 40, I need to suck in my gut and acknowledge that the armour I need, is going to be a damn sight harder to get than in tiers 1 – 3. As I’ve leveled up solely in PvP since the very start, my armour requirements have always been comfortably met by loot bags and a healthy supply of medallions.
Not so in tier 4. Loot bags have been as rare as rocking horse droppings (Too many players, not enough bags), though my lowly rank of 34 will be effecting my ability to gain traction in the modifiers. So this has really got me thinking about what real armour upgrades I’m going to be able to get in the short-term. It’s not really enough to replace something with its higher level equivalent, if the stats don’t tie up or I end up losing something like +crit %. As I’ve spent more time looking at armour, I’ve really appreciated how much difference there is between my crap and the people wearing warlord and royal. A well-aimed wet fart, would very probably slice through my current chest piece.
In the previous tiers I’ve only really needed to buy one/two items, in this final tier it’s going to cost a significant amount more in officer medallions. Which is a shame since I had my heart set on acquiring the trophy for getting invader insignia (Paid for using officer medallions and conquerer insignia) and moving through to my invader weapon asap. Unfortunately my current acquisition rate on conqueror crests is tardy to say the least, so I may well end up having loads of officer medallions spare by the time I acquire the necessary conqueror crests.
On a more positive note, is that I’ve picked up a new purple staff from my stage 3 win recently, it’s a Kindlestave of Embers, which compared to my current toothpick is a great step forward.
My only niggle at the moment, is that I already have my 100% of RP for my BW at level 34, yet only up to just over 40% of xp.
