I know that there have been several threads recently asking about changes since players have last played, so I really didn't want to add to that string of threads----however, I have been trying to do my own research and reading through the forums, but I have been unable to find a clear explanation of how the leves are currently working. It seems that whenever I go to pick up new leves based on the timer on this site I am only alotted 4 leves? I noticed in some of the patch notes that it is supposed to be 12--am I reading this wrong? Any help would be appreciated.
Also--is the "dated" gear not good to use? Are the stats lesser or not useable at all---or should I not worry about replacing those items until I would have been ready for the next upgrade anyway?
I swear I have been looking for this info so I must be bad at research, but with all the changes and just coming back yesterday (after a year) it is hard for me to tell what info is really up to date.
Thanks in advance for any help!!
