Yep, get the Salvager addon or it's a right pain. Basically all
gear is now useless, so you need to salvage it and craft new stuff.
I got as far as installing the Salvager addon and clearing out everything, then did a crashed thumper and logged to watch a movie. Just did a full reinstall of Windoze so am a bit over staring at a screen.
Will be fine once everything is worked out for your gear and how it all works - but yeah might be a pain for a short while.
I like the UI changes and everyhting feels more like a game closer to coming out of beta, more features that work together etc. It just feels more well thought out. This is the third or fourth crafting and leveling change I've seen and I hope it's the last.
I've also requested a TS channel as it got dropped in the server move http://www.theoldergamers.com/forum/...ml#post3988948
seeing as we'll have a bit more activity again I suspect.
