I have a difficult time in game gathering resources after lvl 70+. Until lvl 70, doing quest's, killing mob's and making solo dungeon's, gathering mat's necesary for lvl-ing up Soul expert and Chef lvl was like a charm, but now, after 70, you praise the Lord when you get an gold ore on warp mob's, or any resource needed to lvl up your profesion's. Or we need to wait for a seasonal event that actually give us, the lowbie's some help by making daily bosses and quest's that are period limited...
And now come's the painfull part, ok, i agree to put necesary lvl for Soul Expert 15200 for converting the gem into atisan one, but take the view of a newbie player, in how many year's can he make 15200 SE level when after 70 the drop rate is so low, so here come's my sugestion:
Pls, if can be taken into consideration by Dev's/GM's/ or anyone can do something, put at mob's in Soulkeeper Challenge, to bosse's in Challenge Tower, or increase the drop rate of resources at mob's in warp zone's so we can catch the older player's.
I dont think this will affect very much the economy or the work of the other player's, hence it will make more balance for player's who wanna farm to increase they'r profesion's and craft better Desert's/Gourmet's/Drink's and scroll's.
I hope my sugestion is a good one, and i wait for any feedback about it here in replay's.
