    Angry Level 77 Third Age better than level 75 2nd age?

    I finally managed to get my woodworker to become skilled enough to craft westfold tier 2nd age legendary staves for my lore-master. So, I go to the AH, spend a considerable sum of gold to buy the ingredients and I get extremely excited to finally have a teal level 75 legendary... A few days later in another region, I get a ton of level 77 Third age staff drops that have like 60 more DPS than my 2nd age legendary! We all know how quick levels advance in the 75+ areas, so I'm asking myself, what's the point of becoming a member of a crafting guild, whats the point of collecting all the rare ingredients if my 2nd age weapon will become obsolete in 2 levels!?

    It's one of many reasons I'm being dissapointed with LOTRO as of late, but to avoid spreading this thread into a total mess I'll just stick to the legendary nonsense for now.

    You exaggerate. 60 DPS is not 10 DPS (137.9 vs 147.5).

    The benefit of 2As/1As is to get bigger numbers at cap. A cap which doesn't move for a year.

    Now you know not to spend so much effort or so many resources until cap.

    The tiers 1st,2nd,3rd were only really aplicable when their respective levels were the cap (65,75) and now 85.

    You say yourself you know how quickly the leveling goes 75+. Sa lvl 75's were desirable for orthanc/foundry/rof etc in groups but now it's just a fast track up to 85.

    The idea of being in a crafting guild as far as i can see, is to create crafted relics for you legendaries. Let's face it most 75 weps can be created with a trip to skirmish camp for symbol and maybe some mining/foresting for sigil.

    When you are lvl 50 you get to be aware that lI stats increase over level, it has been like this since moria.

    I don't get upset by it, i farm turtle for lvl 60 barters for my alts that last me till 75. 75 third/sec age, whatever i have.

    It just isn't that much of a big deal but you should know by now the diminishing dps of any weapon over time/levels
