    Meaning, people who upgrade to the legs and use an avatar BP thus losing their six set.

    TBH, comparing the gear side by side, its a sidegrade at best. You gain lots of this to sacrifice lots of that which is going to put you right where you were, or worse.

    It is really all crap. I'd use BG gear over pretty much any piece of Mark gear.

    Give us some house items or something to buy with these Marks. I've got shards up to wazoo that I'll use instead. Rather have my alts in T2 than build up Marks for marginally better gear.

    Came into SF wearing T3 set with t4 bracers & gloves with Myth epic, not the best gear by far, but it's what I got. At lvl 90 with 216 AA in that same gear was able to parse 16.2k on the dummy. Bought T2 mark shoulders from Moonfield & equipped instance chest that dropped from Research Halls, no other changes, same AA, Same cast order, parsed 18.6k on same dummy. I wont be swapping my gloves or bracers anytime soon, but with the new gear Im able to get a balance on Crit/Crit Bonus/DA/Potency which seems to be a decent upgrade from T3 TSO.

    also...the merchant only showed 2 foot items for red slot. are the other items found at other merchants?
    Sandals of Visionary Being are a raid drop which can be upgraded to get a red adorn slot. Only the boots are upgraded in this way, all other red slot items drop as is. Not sure why they did it this way, probably because the mob who drops the boots is a lot easier than the next mob to drop red slot items.

    As for losing crit and double attack, they are so common on jewellery now that its a non issue, you can cap both while wearing full SF raid gear with tons of crit bonus and potency above the TSO gear.

    Red slot gear is an upgrade for sure, but there really is nothing in between TSO sets and the new red slot gear. I doubt anyone could use the entry mob drops to progress further in SF, it pretty much requires TSO raid gear to survive the AEs. Broken gear progression really.

    This is what I have been seeing. SF drops that are comparable to my TSO set gear. You almost have to stock up on SF pieces until you have enough to make it worth breaking your 6-pc. Jewelry has been solid though.
