Welcome to the world of AT specifically in Dhayavar from where you are the youngest son of a farmer- young kid- and is looking for his old brother. What will you expect? Ergo, almost all of the prices are high because we are farmer's son. We can only afford is a bread to satisfy hunger.
What do you expect? You have to deal with the low BC because, according to the story, the main character (you) is a young kid and a son of a farmer.Osho wrote: ↑Tue Nov 23, 2021 3:30 pm It is essentially meant to make life easy to collect loot that you can sell for gold, and doesn't work for my low BC character created with high AC/DMG playthrough in mind. What really works is actually a combination of high BC items from armor, cap, gloves or shoes whichever fits the bill and requirement.
1DR with just 5 BC won't help until I further increase DR related items in combination, which are largely low on BC. It's useful for grinding purposes but not much in terms of tackling quests with high XP and/or better loot to sell.
I understand you want to progress faster. We have a lot of different characters to build to. Some prefer to build tanky (high bc and DR but low ac), precise fighter (high ac but low bc and DR), balancer (balanced stats), samurai (high crits), mixer (from the name itself), and many more! Ergo, if this item doesn't help you, then for others "yes, this helps me a lot".Osho wrote: ↑Tue Nov 23, 2021 3:30 pm I could spend 1800 to get a cap+armor+gloves that'll boost BC for the total price.
IMO 1DR item for low tier armor isn't worth it since DR is best suited for top-tier armors. In early levels, BC, AC and DMG are important as the game does not offer freedom to spend points equally. AC is +5 fixed, while BC is lower at +3BC and DMG is the lowest at +1 per level, thus a +1DR isn't worth for my investment if the base values like BC, AC or DMG of the armor are low itself
If you want to boost BC from the first start, then why not? Other players wanted to raise AD from the first start, while others prefer Crits, while others choose DR.
It's up to you of what you want to wear and to do in this game.
BTW, are you suggesting to decrease the shop's price by 20% to 30%?
Also, to increase BC (from 0 to IDK 15) from the first start of the game?
