I was wondering.
I had been using lvl 8 copper rings. 2 acc a piece.
Now that I'm lvl 16 I bought some brass rings. 3 acc a pop.
But they are lvl 18.
I'm really confused. Should I wait for 18 to equip them? I have -no- idea what the level difference penalty is. How would I know how much acc is working?
Based on what I've heard, it'd probably be best to wait. 33% penalties for being one level short are common, and the brass rings will be more expensive to repair (and will probably wear faster, too). Basically, overlevelled gear is generally a bad idea, especially if you have access to level-appropriate stuff. However, you can try parsing your battle output to get more evidence for a decision.
