      Given they had to disable it outside of a hotfix, I’m guessing someone found an exploit or something similar.

      Yea, the latest additions are pretty expensive. I was going to upgrade my last two remaining Expert gear (Belt/Boots) but after looking at the upgrade requirements and their recipes I just “noped” right out of there. The next day I got myself two Dreambreaker gear which – when fully upgraded – are even better than the new Expert upgrades. And their cost? 6x Abyssal Crusader’s Accelerators (have a heap of Aby marks stocked up) and a few Favor Infused Accelerators (had about 40 on me; real easy to get – 10k favor each). Huge difference in cost, and yet the Dreambreaker gear has better stats.

      I think Trion went a little too far with the costs for the new gear; and looks like they’re throwing in the 30-slot bag for similar.

      I think they are losing touch completely. the crafting system is messed up, among other things. I have 50 so days of premium left from the second expansion year that they didn’t offer this go round.(they charged MORE for an expansion and gave less) It will be my last. I left Blizzard and haven’t gone back Trion will be very easily forgotten…
      Beside I have like 2 years of back log on my Steam Account games…
