    Honestly, there are tons of such videos, and there are still many players who haven't got a single 4x platinum item despite lots and lots of attempt. Truth is, it is all luck dependant, and either there are some heavy exploits from which some people profit, or PRNG favours some characters by a lot - or maybe both.

    also, with content expansion coming, i would put a pause on any expensive crafting projects. most likely anything you make now will be obsolete soon.

    Only if you are one of the LUCKY ones that the PRNG favors... otherwise it could take you years to get "new" equipment to replace what you have... that you can be advancing now, not waiting till 2022 to finaly make upgrades.

    ;) It's why I have over 600 million saved up glyphs... and still hoarding as I go. :)

    I have no 4x platinums and the only item with a platinum crafted line is a 1x plat, 3x gold. I'm not even at fully crafted for all my gear, which is just between t6-t7 items, some crafted, some uncrafted, with the occasional t8.

    I'm not really bothering with playing at the moment and am just focused on increasing my wisdom by doing the first daily. But I suspect/hope that once content expansion arrives, average drops will outclass 4x platinums.

    Plats are still going to be plats. 82 - 100% of enchantment value possible. That isn't changing.

    Gold lines are still going to be gold lines, the same for enchantments (73% to 82% range possible) and of base value (90% to 100% range possible) that it has been for a long time. None of that is changing.

    The only thing changing is that you will be able to get drops of a higher LEVEL. Not a higher Tier. Tiers are not changing either.

    So its a matter of Glyphing what you have up as soon as the expansion comes out, or sitting there weak for weeks/months waiting on the "PRNG wishes matter" to grant you that extremely very rare good base drop at high Tier (an item that you already have gotten at a lower level & tier, and glyphed and tiered up). A drop that you may not see for 1 to 20 months... or more.

    And, oh by the way, the Enchantments are not changing either. So, if you have 9x/9x/9x/9x plat enchantments... and you do get a drop of X item that happens to have similar base values at a higher level, then you can just soul core transfer the enchantments over and apply all the glyphs you removed from old item X to new item X. You are not re-farming anything.

    All the items I have were availiable before the last expansion... I just got them after the expansion since I reached level cap 50 1.5 days before 55 came. If 55 hadn't come (and all other additions did), then I'd still have the exact same items, just at a lower level.

    Y'all are way toooo worried over nuttin'.
