I’m in a weird place with Division 2 right now. I love the game, but I’ve also hit a brick wall. I’m at GS 451, and I’ve got an inventory that is filled with GS 450 loot in every slot. There’s really no reason for me to keep farming gear any more, knowing the cap will increase to 500 soon with WT5.
This leaves me with no real reason to do anything else right now, aside from collecting the masks and grinding out specialization points. And it’s a bummer, because I want a reason to keep playing!
I think the game’s major balance flaw (especially once you hit endgame), is that it throws way too much gear at you constantly. There’s gear crates all over the world that are highly likely to contain high-end stuff in them, which are just as good as any boss loot drop. It seems like you’re running into loot every thirty feet just walking around the map. There’s no point to really craft anything in the endgame, because it’ll be obsolete in 15 minutes anyway.
It’s less of an issue from lvl 1-30, because leveling up takes a little while. But once you switch to gear score, it gets ridiculous. I managed to hit lvl 30 and get to World Tier 3 in a single play session - that shouldn’t be possible.
