I’ve got no desire for it to be easy, just that I can’t make the numbers add up.
I did a quick check on looking at the base level material for cloth. Killed 100 phase masks and soul talons in hard server and salvaged 6 cheap cloth from the drops.
Given that you appear to need 1 million (10 for each stage and 6 stages multiplying up) cheap cloth for one wadmal that would mean nearly 17m kills for 1 wadmal. 167m kills for 10 wadmal and crafting one random end game item.
At one kill a second (very ambitious but for illustration) that would take over 5 years of 24/7 solid play. Over a century to get a set.
I guess I’ve probably made a hideous mistake with the calculations; at least I hope I have but I can’t see obviously where.
I’m also aware that there may be drops of higher level cloth (bosses maybe?) that may circumvent the process but if my numbers are correct the route that involves actually crafting each level of cloth would take decades.
Hope I’m wrong and look forward to being corrected.
