The Ashes of Creation dev team want your thoughts on overgearing in their latest dev discussion.
If you’re unfamiliar with the dev discussion format, this is basically a chance for the dev team to ask you, the community, a question and gather your feedback and thoughts. This week’s question is all about overgearing, or providing higher level equipment to lower level characters.
As expected, plenty of people in the community responded to the question in the forums. Some folks dislike the concept,
“Overgearing is something I dislike when I play through a game the first time. I like to have an appropriate challenge, instead of just steamrolling my way through everything.”
Still others are relatively apathetic to it,
“I don't mind overgearing my character if and only if it's my, say, fourth or fifth time rolling. If I'm playing through any game's story/campaign/whatever for the first time, I will not overgear, and I definitely want to enjoy the journey first and foremost.”
Other community members express their desire to have players of similar gear. Some others were ok with the notion of overgearing as long as it didn’t get too out of hand. What are your thoughts?
