To be 28 again

Ah 28, what a great level to be in WAR. Young, wide eyed with all of Tier 4 in front of you. My Ironbreaker, Hoplon, recently reached this magical level. He is now bolstered to rank 36 and can queue up Tier 4 scenarios.

Of course, I get knocked around quite a bit. My equipment is sub par, as my renown rank was 16. I lack many skills and mastery points. I still feel useful though. My Challenge, Guard and Earthshatter are still effective even at this low level.

This is the part of the game I enjoy the most. I can compete in most of the end game and everything I do is useful for me and my team. Tier 4 is also where most of the players are on Badlands, so I can keep pretty busy with RvR. Hoplon is still developing, so that part of the game is still in play too.

If I had my choice, I would start every character at 28. My Rank 7 Rune Priest would love a gift of 21 levels. I don't think I have it in my to do the required PvE (on Badlands) to get him to 28 though. He just wants to play with the rest of the people on the server. Is that so wrong?

I don't even worry about Exp/Renown once I reach Tier 4. Being in the fight is just plain fun for me. The advancement is just gravy. An unwatched Exp bar moves much faster too. Hoplon has refreshed the game for me in a way. Playing an IB is much different from an Engineer.


Damn, and I thought this was about getting old. :D I'd not mind being 28 again, that's for sure -- though I'll keep my current income and wisdom (such as it is)!

I'm not far removed from 28, but I think I'd go for 25 with my current income. Not sure I have any more wisdom.
