Will we get forced to upgrade to new 70 gear later?
As people pointed out already, going for new gear isnt that useful atm, with DG evo-4 being better.
Stuff feels like a side-grade not upgrade.
So, will the same as Dimensional - DG happen here as well?
We currently lack the 70 status upgrade (~3000 crit needed for 100%, higher dmg caps) and I remember the prime attribute on the other servers started on way lower bonuses.
Afaik you even started below 100%, making the prime stat not a "nice-to-have" feature, but 100% required to do anything. (If you start at 10%, an 8% upgrade is almost double damage... from a single item!)
