IMO NexNA are being TOO nice with the gear progression atm. Everything is readily available in shop, and the economy is stopped to a halt. Nobody buying anything anymore. Don't get me wrong - seal shop and enchant shop are both really nice, but both so close together like this and one being a permanent feature are too much.
Is there any reason to run s3 raid except for the title? Nope, you can get everything S3 has to offer (except Eochaid Ess) by running S1 for seals and S2 for scroll. Oh wait, scroll are going to be in the shop for a whole month. Scratch that S2, now everyone will flock to S1. Soloing Rocheste raid all day long is effective, but I don't think it's fun.
And then, you will see ppl losing their motivation because "nothing to do, being geared to the teeth" and end up quitting - especially with the rate of 3 months for a content update we are enduring.
