My character is trapped in a useless maze. The more I play, the less I progress. I apologize for throwing this out there without thoroughly fleshing it out, but for what it's worth: The game has limited progression in all skills and abilities. The better you get, the more time it takes to increase your level. You have reached a cap. One that can only be improved by spending inordinate amounts of time grinding. New content is just out of reach. You need more skill/higher levels to participate in the new scene. But fear not, if you get this or that 3 day blessing, use this or that devotional, find this or that artifact, collect 32 artifacts for combining for more power..... The point is that when you train to the cap, you are put on a treadmill of activity that requires you to perform certain tasks every three days (as an example), the same thing over and over just so you can enjoy new scenes that are beyond any one's ability to train for. So rather than being in scene progressing, we are out of scene grinding up the +25 attunement bauble just so we don't get slaughtered immediately. Wouldn't it be better if we could spend our time in scene developing skills and abilities to cope with the challenges there? I am getting bored spending all my time buffing up rather than playing. At present, if it takes 15 million experience points to progress in pretty much any skill, you have no choice of playing where you get new and exciting challenges. Rather you have to rehash the same old blessing renewal routine in a Tier 3 area just to step foot in the new content. Like I said, I am not good at fleshing this stuff out. There are many solutions that come to mind but I am not capable of developing them enough for proposal. Example: perhaps we could train our weapon for special use. If I killed 100, 1000, 10000 skeletons with my weapon it would gain abilities against all similar foe. I would imagine that durability would have to function differently so you don't wear the darned thing out just as it gets to a satisfying level.......I hope you see my drift.
