Thought I'd log in to support what the other players are saying in that this is 1 step forward and 10 steps backwards. I lurk on the forums once in awhile to see the updates getting more and more against the little bit of players left.
What is actually going on?????? To "get to the end" of this game is almost impossible. Now this? There should AT LEAST be either less AP to restore an item (Restoring Lvl. 90 gear is absolutely absurd) and at least a few more times before it's destroyed permanently. Or never destroyed permanently. Why is this seriously a thing in 2016-17?
