You’re probably wondering what I’m rambling on about again. Well it’s emblems and insignia. I swear to god I feel I’m in the foothills of the Himalayas and I’m looking up at the peak of Everest, and I’m already gasping for breath. Which translates to, I’m trying to save up for my 1st two-handed staff at 880 emblems, while having to get the trophy for the Invader insignia, beforehand.
To me it makes sense to start the process of acquiring Invader insignia’s while still saving for the baseline weapon. I’ll lose some int, with the lowest staff, but it’ll give me 4% more crit, which when combined with a few other items I have my eye on, I hope will push my crit up to 25%.
Now considering I started accumulating officer emblems at level 32+, I sometimes (read often) feel I’m making F*$k all progress. Of course having to PUG it , has a huge impact of the ye old success rate, but the lack of any real progress has really started to punch my buttons.
I normally feel more pain as the day progresses and more premades start appearing. It can often be an exercise in damage limitation. Looking to get into 100+, so a 2nd emblem can be obtained. Hell if I was on the other side of the fench, I’d be loving it.
Given my current forward momentum, I will probably skip the Invader emblem staff and just get the trophy to acquire the Warlord insignia. I just can’t see me acquiring enough to buy the trophy and the equivalent level staff. Plus the time required to do the high number of scenario’s does pull me away from ORvR more than I would really like.
I do sometimes wonder if the actual insignia and emblem requirements are a little bit to high. Even a very successful premade, would be looking at 200 wins, to get the higher level weapon.
At least I have no fear of not having a long-term goal with my emblem purchases. I will be intrigued to see what the insignia/emblem split will be, after I’ve completed another 100 scenarios.
Ask me my mood in about 2 more weeks, when I’ve completed another 100 scenario’s and the veins on my forehead are threatening to burst like a zit.
