I am stuck on def and attk rating 1, Tarot drops, recipies and mission drops are not giving me gear with better values than what i already own and i have been grinding quite heavily on systems 1-3. Am i doing something wrong?
Getting out of att/def 1 is the hardest step, all high att/def stat artificer equip is required sometimes, the weekly glory packs are another good source for artificer gear. one low stat item is enough to prevent you getting to 2
You will need max of all purples (they range in values slightly) to get to the next rank.
It can be frustratingly slow at the moment, but it's a feature of progress that isn't fully implemented yet. Try to keep an eye out for one item that is -1 from the others.
