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.
