Arena is back to being ridiculous.
So my 273 speed Apothecary, with my Arbiter speed lead, is not winning ANY speed battles in Gold II arena? That's absurd.
I used to stay in Gold IV consistently as long as I spent a few gems to refresh once in a while, which seems like a fair ask. I'd drop down to III and go back up again as long as I put in the effort. Like I said, a fair ask.
Now...I can't win a speed battle to save my life. I'm losing to 300+ speed High Katuns in Gold II. That just doesn't make sense anymore.
I can re-gear my Arbiter to have 300 speed, but that will lessen the effectiveness of my Apothecary in PVE, and I feel like 273 should be enough to stay competitive in Arena. 273 is hard to get to for a F2P account, especially if you still have a strong build with that speed.
Is it really normal to need 300 speed for an arena team to compete in Gold now?
