Re: At what point do you give up?
Hunters have it easy. Any crafted 2nd age bow (yes, do SG 20-30 times for a symol) that has most of the important legacies (induction crit, focus crit, bleed damage) will be highly effective. Any weapon with Needful Haste and crit damage legacies is good enough. Some classes have to get a mix of 3-4 legacies on two different weapons and two different class items (one set for healing/buffing the other set for DPS) or they will be noticeably gimped.
