...I first started noticing this around level 50+... it got worst at 60+, really bad at 70+... and well, things still really haven't improved.
Then and now, the only answers I seem to get are along the lines of... "I did it 20 levels lowers than you and without all the stuff you're using and didn't have a problem"... which isn't really helpful...
Basically I tend to go squish really easy, sometimes even when 20 levels above what the hunting guides suggest for an area. Things I'm using:
- Health platters
- Health aura
- Forged shield
- Forged armor
- Basically all the cosmic and ritual defenses (Cloak, Draconis, etc)
...but no matter what, I just seem to squish in any sort of PvE really really easy. Everything just hits like a freight train if its even remotely close to my level...
What am I missing?
Is Trill/Institute (alone or in combination...) just really terribad for PvE combat..? Is there some game changing buff or something I'm missing..?
