No. The original expectations, that "grow with you" mark, were never met, and now LIs are tied to the store such that we will never see positive, player-friendly change. It's grindy and RNG-riffic (yes yes, grind is relative and all that). However, this iteration is certainly better than the original Moria implementation. But considering how much effort you can put into your LI, it's effectively a second character or pet. These things shouldn't be disposable.
