Honestly I find this completly overkill. It's not a matter if wanting casual players to catch up.
Something was needed to be done. But not like this.
Without new content the only thing that make people stay, is progression.
Ribbons made easy to get good leg weapon and armors and upgrade faster. Even double line accessories are easy to get now.
Only thing left to work on was gemstone and now t10 will be handed on a silver plate.
I personnaly think the rng part should have been toned done and allow for non time gated and easier source of dust.
Maybe something else.
But with this everyone will be maxed very fast with nothing to do...
Summer patch is comming, cool, but it is june earliest and could also be september...
