after leveling in NA with the loot nerf... it was kinda okay. Only thing to really annoy me is that you don't have any manastones.. like at all. Nothing. Till lvl 40 I dropped not even 10 manastones, all of which came from dungeons.
Why even have manastone slots in gear anymore if you don't drop them anymore..
You want to completely nerf the open world.. so it's only for quests and pvp... fine. THen at least buff the loot in dungeons.. and not nerf it as well.
Part of the fun in a MMO is grinding for currency, items, wealth and power. If a MMO does not have these it will just be a bad MMO. If you are grinding mobs for 4 hours and have nothing to show for, that is a failed MMO.
