So I really only tend to come back for an expansion , level a couple of dps , a healer , and a tank to max level and do all the raids on normal. I use ACT dps meter and enjoy trying to optimize rotations and gear to max my dps. I have a ninja with basically all the best tomestone gear and 590 ilvl weapon and this is usually when I tend to stop playing.
I guess my question would be: Is savage raiding the only way to progress further once you hit this point? I'd love to upgrade my weapon but it seems you have to clear savage raid 4 pandaemonium to do this? I am too sporadic a player these days to get into a static group. Is pugging the savage raids even an option?
One non-Savage option to go above 590 weapon.
Endsinger EX weapon = 595.
P3S material drop will upgrade your 590 tomestone to 600.
P4S drops 605 weapon.
