It actually is not that bad, but the players that were stuck at level 200 for months that farmed gold, also farmed way better equipment than us that have done guild quests the whole time, friend of mine is 112k k alliance attack to my 26k, he was 200 when I met him 10 months ago, I am just now 153. There are good units that drop in the higher levels, but to farm them I cannot do trials at the same time, how about at least having the trial mobs randomly drop the items that drop in whatever zone they are in, or base it on the trial mobs' strength. Will take me months and months to catch up to the old school guys in that category.
