And what's the problem starting with seraps? Hell, I started with scarlas and this is /well/ before asulas came out. Had grunil when 250 dp was sought after, ulted it as soon as item reformation came out. People forget that all these stepping stones are still in the game. We have to stop telling players that they should skip everything and just get boss gear because that's all that matters in the end. There is a reason boss gear from the /launch of the damn game/ is still relevant. It's supposed to be a long fought journey, and we're LUCKY to play a game where end game gear isn't a revolving door that's made irrelevant with each new expansion.
