Re: Remove rareloads

I think rareloads are killing the small pbase we have. If there was less rarity, people could quest their gear faster freeing them up and giving them more incentive to do more zoning. Of course the top tier items should retain rarity, i just think there's too much of it. You're contradicting yourse...
