Nothing wrong with over-geared players enjoying content with under geared or appropriately geared players. Not a big deal. So you'll rip hate off the tank more often... First world problems.
To use AK as an example if you have two over geared DDs and 1 appropriately geared or under geared tank, which has happened in my FC as we run alts through or new people, who really cares? Stuff dies before it has a chance to see it coming and on bosses the DDs should be smart enough to realize it might be an issue and throttle just a bit, not earth shattering. This game is generous anyhow with hate mechanics you don't have to adjust that much. Under geared healer over geared everyone else? Again who cares. The fact that everyone else is over geared (especially the tank) means they take less damage. In this situation the healer might have even less to do than normal and can coast for the whole dungeon DDing if they felt like it half the time.
What's the real complaint here? "This run went too smoothly because people had good gear. boo hoo" ?
I generally agree you, but here is my general reply to the thread.
The real problem from my experience is you have 1 great DPS and 1 AF and lower than lv50 geared DPS. Without solid DPS on these bosses, it's asking for trouble. I've done this dungeon so many times that the only "leech" can be a healer. A poorly geared tank will get smoked by the bosses and the giant guys or heck even all the gargolye and Arhiman. It's not so much about hate management as it is stuff needs to die or else all hope is lost. The demon wall is the perfect example. Tell me that DPS doesn't matter on the wall when you get pushed off if you're too slow.
The bottom line is people that haven't farmed darklight gear or better have no business doing AK or Primals for that matter. This isn't about elitism or preferring the easy path either. It's about all the times I've done content with players that understand the mechanics(skill), but lacked the gear were still dead weight. All the times I've won an instance with an unbalanced party, it's always been a pain. Sometimes it was me who was under-geared until I learned better. Farm, farm, and more farming the easier dungeons like CR until you bring your gear up to standard.
Any new lv50's reading this, here is my advice. The AF gear might look badass, but after the story missions, you're best to replace all of it
. As I told my friends, it's complete trash for endgame content. Instead farm some darklight gear and upgrade all your weapons and accessories to lv50 until you get better choices. Start your relic quest and when you do get to the AK requirement, make sure you've upgraded most of your gear by then. Some people say to do Wander's palace, but I think spamming CR runs is best for a newbie lv50. One reason is def/vit for tanks and dmg/vit for dps. Most of these endgame raids will have you being hit regardless of how perfectly you dodge AoE. Titan is the best example, but even during the AK run, stuff randomly targets you.
