Although, I will say, I have made it to the highest tier of gear in under a month. Which when I tell people that I play with, they say, "No way... How?" or "Seriously?! That's amazing!" and other things that are basically the same but differently worded. Either way, apparently I am a 'Legend' in this game for doing this so quickly.
Anyways, I suggest giving the game a shot. It will be getting a 'review' soon. Just having too much fun playing it!
