    looted lvl 83 LI axe stronger than crafted lv 85 LI???

    As the tittle says, I looted with my champion a lv 83 LI axe, and ir has better DPS than my crafted lv85 LI Axe, the looted one even has better DPS than REFORGED second age LV 85 Axe.

    can it be you are comparing 2h with 1h? have you identified and equipped all mentioned LIs? (there is a bug that shows lower DPS numbers on unbound LI than it is after identifying and/or equipping). also screenshots would be most appreciated.

    I know that a recent 'rescaling' has affected scaled drop gear where starts are a function of level, but did not touch gear of fixed stats such as specific quest rewards or crafted/bartered items. That is what you might be seeing.

    Yes, it is rather messed up.

    Screenshot shows a sword (L83) and 2 axes (L85 and L84), not 3 axes....

    Same level sword and axe LI are no different. And actually the blue axe on the right is not an LI at all, it is a min level 75 axe of item level 84, a totally different fish.

    Now I actually just confirmed. My Warden has a sword, a mace and a club slotted in the LI panel, all are lvl 100 dropped Third Age LIs. All three have exact same DPS:
    329-548 Common damage, 438.3 DPS.

    I went on my Weaponsmith and had him make a sword and an axe, lvl 100 LIs , Third Age. They both show:
    323-538 Common damage, 430.8 DPS.

    I suspect they tried to approximate the lvl 100 dropped scaling to be similar to lvl 100 crafted, but in lower levels, the scaling formula does not follow the crafted.

    In any case, if you can equip a lvl 85 LI, you really should shoot for an 86+ one, they have like 30% DPS jump.
