So, I have very few negative things to say about the update, as most things that are 'off' are just incomplete atm and I understand that when it was finished by 1 developer when it was originally planned for two to work on it.
However... I do have 1 thing to say about it, and it really, REALLY grinds my gears.
Why the hell was the minimum level requirement on dungeons increased to 210?
No Seriously, getting from 190-200 on Orlo or Eldeon was pain-staking enough, what with the utter non-existent quest content, lack of ANY engagement from the endless cycle of bot parties, and the monotony of pressing 3-4 keys for 50 hours straight, but atleast when you hit 200, you had CONTENT to play.
Even when it was like that, 190-200 no option but to play the 1-2-3-1-2-3-1-2-3 game, people were complaining about it. The staff even admitted that from 160-200 there was a sudden loss of leveling rates. So why in Eldeons green planet, did you make that gap EVEN BIGGER? The dungeon was already scaled to be 200-245, I sincerely doubt increasing the maximum by 5 levels justified increasing the minimum by double....
Now, that's not even mentioning that you have level 200 gear, dropping in a 210 minimum area that already has level 200 valor, 210 Exalted, 220 Exalted and now 225 weapons and Valor for 240 Gear.
So yeah, that's my ONLY request right now. For the LOVE of GOD do something about the 190-210 gap since you just made it that much worse. Honestly, I don't even feel like playing the game, if all I have to look forward to on my freshly leveled alts, is 50+ hours of pressing the same 3 keys, while not talking to anyone cause they're all either bots or watching youtube/netflix doing their daily finger work-outs. And yes, I'm a bit salty on a personal level, seeing as I spent a good 20 sigils, 100-150 boosters, and 40+ arua's blessings, solo leveling to 200, JUST so I could relax, and PLAY the dungeon modes to level at my leisure. But personal notes aside, it made no sense to me on a mechanical level.
Increasing the min level on HoO + CoU to 210 was a mistake, makes no sense, please revert, my face have several keys embedded in it over this.
You can easily hit 210 in Sikuku Ruins
