I have a 19 paladin with 50% damage reduction and well over 1000 health. Improved blessing of freedom + swiftness pots (mats are easy to farm in Westfall) means I can cap any flag I want.The enchantment system that allows this is BROKEN. This isn't crying, because I didn't get mad went I got slayed by twinks while leveling up, I got even. It's just a question of bad game mechanics: it's not that it makes the game unfair, it's that it makes the game STUPID.Simple example: +100 health to chest yields a 1-3% bonus to hp for a level 60. But even a warrior all in blues at 19 can't have more than 8-900 health, and probably a lot less, so the bonus is more like 10-15%. Crusader: +100 strength when your strength is less than 100? Come on. And we should mention that there are way more (and more easily obtained) physical damage enchants than spell damage enchants, so basically casters are more or less out of the game as twinks. My pally, even with +30 healing, can't heal herself for more than 20% of her total health, so a big chunk of my abilities are useless.I've got no problem with equipment twinking. High level chants on low level equipment is broken.
