    @ubi-auron you just broke the game , this expertise is a junk idea , the amount of donations needed , the low xp and the lowest drops ever in the game, and to make it worse the servers are junk , hits not registering , exit to desktop, freeze , etc etc etc .why does the game get worse every update ?.. The more i play the worse it is ?. you say it is for balance ?. how can you balance this game with the bugs ? hacks ? and cheats? . pve was great but gets nerfed every time pvp get nerfed , why ? pve was not broken ?.
    I update my character and the npc gets double hit protection ?.. just makes the game pointless if the npc upgrade every time i upgrade , so i get weaker they get stronger , no upgrade is worth it..

    I like how you say information about how expertise works ?. it does not work that is the problem , cant dazzle with brilliance so baffle with bull crap..

    @hyper-sniper you're being a tad too dramatic.

    I get you're frustrated and the game is not exactly stable right now, but if you have specific questions we can help you out, if you just needed to vent there's not much we can do.

    @desrocchi Dramatic ? every crash i loose my medkits special ammo etc , and sometimes bounty and items waiting to be picked up , and the game lockup a lot , sick of sending crash reports , all we want is a working game , we know we will have bugs , but every time they update the game they break it more , it is always rush jobs , any update , or any nerf is a rush job , the only thing they do not rush is fixes .. i feel sorry for players that are just starting the game , with the nerf to drops and the low % items that are dropping , it is ALL junk and no way to upgrade of feel that we are getting anywhere , ground hog game it always starts again and again, never improving just getting worse update by update , nerf by nerf ..

    I am not frustrated , i am sick of the double standards and the loss of hard earned gear , sick of starting again after every nerf , even when the gear i use does not get targeted it always gets affected ..
    So just saying it as it is , THE GAME NEEDS FIXED , STOP THE LOCKUPS AND LONG LOADING TIMES, AND FIX THE SLOW LAGGIE SERVERS...

    @ubi-nacho Donating materials is bugged , to get items proficient they need to be done 1 at a time, when you donate a lot of items as junk they do not count up properly , getting ripped of here ..

    @hyper-sniper remember that 1 item only fills up half a point, it's not uncommon to donate and see no point going up.

    (...) remember that 1 item only fills up half a point, it's not uncommon to donate and see no point going up.


    And that's only true for weapons, named and exotic items. When donating Gear or Brand Set items each item only gives 8,800 XP (filling up the bar a tenth – so gaining one Proficiency Rank needs 10 items).

    You need xp to reach profecient.

    You need resources to reach x-levels e.g., +1% armor.

    How many x-levels are there? I'm on 3.

    You personally can increase the Grade of your gear, skills, and weapons as high as you agent's Expertise Level is. In your case you currently can upgrade your gear to Grade 3 (since you are at Expertise Level 3). So as soon as you will reach Expertise Level 4, you will be able to upgrade any item you are Proficient with to Grade 4. And so on...

    The current soft cap of the Expertise Level is 20 (dependent on how many Items are in the game and thus how many Proficiency Ranks you can accumulate across all those items).
