I was pretty pleased a few nights ago (12th Jan to be precise) when I hit my goal of RR66 on my RP, by mid January. It’s been a little bit slower than I would have liked, but that’s just the way it is, the gods of Warhammer were against me. Now R66 was important milestone, since it allowed me to wear 3 pieces of Warlord armour (3 piece bonus), which intern also allowed me to dispose of the 2 pieces of conqueror armour I’ve been wearing since the beginning of Dec 2010.
So at the moment, it’s 4 invader/3 warlord. The big decision is whether to go with 4 parts warlord and lose the 5% healing crit from the invader, in favour of getting +70 odd wounds. As Fastrada said, more healing or more survivability.
Once I hit RR66, I swapped around all the parts and bought a few I was missing, and frankly I had plenty of Warlord & Invader crests to do the job. So my concern about lack of crests turned out to be a bit of a red herring. Not quite sure what’s going to happen when I get into the RR70’s, but I have a faint hope that zone flips start handing out royal crests. At the moment I have 22 Royal Crests and 2 pieces of sovereign armour, but it’s still 10 more RR’s before I’m going to swap armour again.
I’m not sure if the uplift has been that sizeable, but all these little things help. Some of the high RR WE’s still make cream cheese out of me, so it’s lucky there aren’t that many.
