Strategies for filling specific equipment holes
I'm certainly not the only one with this issue, so I thought I might revive an old discussion: are there any faster ways (beyond chance) to fill gaps in equipment? (for free-to-play)
For weapons, the issue seems to have become moot as pretty much everyone now can use (and upgrade) unique weapons that are superior for each class. For armor, however, the problem remains. Let's say you've been waiting around for some reasonable Scout armor but simply haven't hit. Meanwhile, you're sitting on multiples for other classes. Any ideas how to improve Scout chances?
The two ways I can think of would be to pay out 12.5k trade goods for Legendary scout armor with unknown traits when they land, or wait for the right match in the Guild Shop. Any others?
