Upgrades come and upgrades go, but it’s nice to be at the end of the journey, so to speak. I hit level 62 with both my toons this weekend, and upgraded to full sets of xegonite–“vanguard” for Gaff and “reverent” for Lurk. While I am on the look out for better upgrades (fabled and the like), the mitigation boost, coupled with a new weapon on Gaff, have made the combo much more viable in KoS. As I begin to raid, I hope to shed the look sooner rather than later, but I couldn’t resist the new gear, especially with raw xegonite clusters going for a mere 30 gold each on Crushbone. I crafted the armor on my former main and both toons were soon suited up in there new gear.
During my late level 50s, some of my guildmates from Knights of the Cataclysm, Thorell and Eharonna, took me to the zone Acadechism atop Crushbone Keep. Not only is the exerience good, but I have picked up several pieces of useful gear, including Gaff’s new two-hander, the “Manafused Greatblade.”
