I’m playing my new nightblade, dual wield (of course) and I’m using a couple of level 75 purple weapons I had laying around (Crystallums) and I thought I would be good for at least a while… sure they weren’t perfect for my build (piercing damage), but they were much better then the Omens I was running with up to that point.
Then I hit Homestead (on Elite mind you), and entered the Dermaptian area. The first few greens I see I check briefly (as I only check MI greens) and I’m shocked to see one is an upgrade. And not just a small upgrade either… it’s MASSIVE. I figured I got a double rare Slicer of Alactrity… then I get another one. I’m stunned at the huge damage boost these things are giving me… even comparing them to purples I can’t use until level 85 (I’m only 72 at this point). I’m looking at these things and wondering why these things that drop like candy are going to be my weapons up until (and perhaps past) 94… unless I replace them with higher level versions later.
I get that some MIs are supposed to be good… but should they be this good? I’m not complaining, I’m just wondering if they should be surpassing supposedly legendary items in quality.
