But why did they nerf Presearing? There is absolutely no reason for it.
What I'm talking about is the Creatures Level is now locked, they can no longer level up off you when you die. I know this only affects about 50 people but it's one of those time honored achievements to see if you can get to level 20 in pre.
For those of us that have a permanent Presearing character it is a little of a downer, it was something that kept us entertained for hours at a time.
We have no reason to bring a level 20 from presearing to post as we most likely have that same character already in post.
I don't understand the reasoning of this, there is no arena in pre, no expert salvage kits(besides the glitched ones), anyone over 16 is most likely going to stay in pre anyway and when it get's too old, delete and start over. They nerfed the bears, we can still get them, but now we're stuck at 16 and those with 20's or in between are stuck and have bragging rights... :(
Farming pre isn't all that lucrative, we're not hurting anyone/thing by being high level in pre. It's just like having a guildie help you at level 2 in post searing ascalon with some quests. We provide a valuable service in pre, helping new players get acquainted with locations and information and form long lasting friendships with other people, something that is very hard to do in post.
Please Anet reverse this change or put some high level creatures in pre or expert salvage kits or an arena or something for us please please please :)
Please don't turn this into a flame thread or get a life thread. Most of us long time pre character keepers have multiple accounts and many post searing characters/factions characters as well, we just stay in pre because it's fun and the community aspect is much larger.
