Just completed 4th lap, but next node requires crafting 3 level 5 runes. I had lots of speed runes prepped for the Rune Lords event and even had some that counted for a previous. I could have saved the final crafting for the two level 5 for this task, except that I did not expect the crafting to go this high. So several questions:
- Has it always been like this or does it seem like the races are getting harder?
- Is the harder just the match-making that we are always paired with?
- Does anyone know how the match-making works?
- Finally if you were planning on starting from scratch you would need 384 million gold to rank up from level 1. Even if you could cut that in half, that's alot of money to be saving.
I would definitely call this one a gatekeeper for only more mature teams.
Fortunately our resident veteran had lots of runes waiting to craft and cleared it for us.
