Re: Question with level 60 LI's
A L61 3rd Age will have the same max damage as a L60 2nd Age. It will have fewer legacy points to spend though, and it can't be leveled with old IXP runes. It is also starting from level 1, while you 2nd Age items are over 30. There's no reason to upgrade.
At 62-64 you'd get more DPS than a L60 2nd Age, but it's still not worth the upgrade. You would be more than 30 levels behind at that time...and you'll never get them leveled high enough before you hit 65 to make it worth the switch.
Keep your L60 2nd Age items and start looking for good L65 3rd Age replacements.
Regarding what to do when you break those L60 2nd Age LIs. If they are at max level you will get the following when you decon:
- You will get a large Moria IXP rune. You can use this to cap a different L60 or below 2nd Age or to break junk LIs. A big, fat Moria rune can level multiple L60 and lower 3rd Age items past 11 to decon for nice relics.
- You will get a small Mirkwood IXP rune. Use this to help level your new L65 item a bit. They're generally 50-60k.
