Quote from MONK_P100Well said. This is pretty true for average players, but for more ambitious players, it would be better to go higher to aim for end-game items one at a time while leaving the other items to be upgraded by chance at occasions for some cheap pickups.
With a good weapons, we can easily farm MP1 and MP2 with lots of experience and loots. I just found my INNA chest, helm at MP3 and Vile Ward of my resist for the last two days, what a game!
Quote from tschipuktiiYeah MutantEnforcer you are right, my gear is not so great. But it was my biggest wish to have a pair of sheng and now i got the chance... so do you think i sould better get other gear pieces first?
Go for the Other shlongs then the set bonus is really cool plus it's badass to have the complete set. Then i guess keep farming MP1 saving your money and working on those other pieces. There is still lots of time before pvp hits which means many months to max out your paragon and fill 4-5 slots with top end gear. GL with the grind.
