Ok I am guessing the crimson HQ entry level is wrong, as we can advance in the quest to enter that cave (quest marker still active), but have to be level 36  :lol:

 

If anyone finds quests for level 35, please post, so I can go do em! I am prob just being a noob as usual and missing something  :P

With the armour down to L30 I got killed to death by 2 deer and then 3 owlbear yearlings, got all my points in warrior but even with the full Merc set and L35 Dbl Gold axe I got whipped, never stood a chance.  Pots are pretty useless now too.

Maybe I have missed the point but no idea what I am supposed to do now except run away. :(

So, i have to grind 98% but can't even attack decent level mobs without getting destroyed, not much to do here but hang around the market making conversation, is it worth even logging in to game?

Need to go in groups to kill any of the higher mobs I think.  As I recall this change in armour is to make space for a To3 set, I'm struggling to understand this at the moment

To3 set is available. have seen one walking around. Am currently farming blossom ridge (do die a bit quicker) to get to 36. The decrease in stats of my crafted set was a bit of a let down, but hoping for some new gear soon

The entrance to the Crimson Macabre HQ (Level 36) should indeed be set to 35. This was set to block this area during the last version. I will get a new build live tomorrow which allows entry to this zone 1 level under the requirement as normal.

 

Additionally the sets didn't get nerfed, they got re-balanced to level 30, as we've added new sets at level 35. Of course level 30 gear is going to be a bit weak against level 35 creatures.
