Ok, so I recall a discussion between developers and players about what will be next after orange 8. Colors were mentioned as well as not introducing any skills at all so that players won't have to suffer yet another orange upgrade and yet another set of intense farming gear.
I propose an idea that the next upgrade can happen and can also be an easy idea for our developers to implement. Our heroes do not need yet another skill nor do they need more gear. What they need, in fact, is a legendary item.
Yes, that's right. A legendary item. Now look at how bland those old overused items they have been using for close to 2 years now and imagine them with something more. Shaman can carry around a new and improved staff of expertise to help him charge his allies even further. Dark horse stomps the ground with his brand new horseshoes to shake the earth as he grants his allies shields. The goblin trio strike faster and harder with a boost to agility on their vorpal daggers. These are just small examples of our heroes standing more proud on the battlefield with their new and improved weapons. GREE, if you want to continue incorporating more grinding for us as players or us as guilds to climb higher, why not develop this mode into a boss raid reward? Send our best heroes against Umlaut and his generals to gather books or crystals to charge our weapons.
Thank you for reading this and I hope to hear a lot of feedback. Let's give Japan a project we can look forward too!
