My point is, since they had the issue before, prior to Wotan even being released.
Then addressed it to be max level character receives max level item drops.
This should never have been happening at all…
If it is a simple mistake or oversight, it is incompetence.
If they don’t consider Mayhem levels to be actual levels, then why bother.
You can look at the design element reason why, but why does that matter.
To correct an issue at the community request, then revert back to the same model makes a fun game so frustrating people will leave… oh wait…
