    So I've been back for 3 weeks now after being inactive for 3 years. I'm happy to find that wearing platemail is finally justified for warriors, but it seems not that easy to achieve:

    1. Minax's reward: It's awesome that we get to choose different wearables, as I've always hated wearing robes and glasses (mace/shield glasses). Why cant we be allowed to trade in the ones that we already own for a different style? All I ever wanted was to wear plate mail but over the years I had to wear glasses. I realized that in order to trade in for a plate helm, it would take days and days of farming to get 50 points and another 100 points for the luck shoulder. OMG, that is not gonna happen. Or...is there already a way that I just dont know yet?
    2. Refinement: Awesome, time to get rid of all Mage Armor and get real platemail parts. After reading some old posts and pulling up some 50 SOS chests, I realized that platemail refinement are very rare. The drop rate is like 5% and less. I dont see myself wanting to start crafting new suits soon. Fighting bosses for legendary artifacts seems more rewarding.
    I still like ToL. The new masteries rock. I do wish the turtle dragon is ridable by human tamer because running on foot sucks :D

    Oh, refinements. A great concept that couldn't have been executed any worse.

    I would really love to see @Kyronix and friends admit that this system was a flop, elucidate the precise logic behind the current boondoggle of a design, and then strip out 95% of the pointless garbage so that it might actually get used. Instead they just pretend everything is fine and that some invisible constituency that never posts on forums or appears in game is totally getting a lot of use out of it.
