I know a lot of this information is out there, even in threads on here, but I wanted more direct answers about a couple of things. I've never made it to max level in this game, because I enjoy playing the game so I have never focused on that, but I really want to now. While they say 'no end game' clearly there are things you can only do at max level. With that in mind, can some people quickly detail a few things?
1) How significant is the currency rewarded from events at 80? Once all the hearts are done, the only places I can see getting gold are from events, vendor trash, and salvaging/ah. Is the bulk of this from completing events?
2) Speaking of events, how prevalent are they in the max level zones? Will there always be an event up and do people just hop around them 'farming' so to speak?
3) I know there are different legendaries and gear, but what does acquiring any of them entail? Is it possible to create a set of gear via crafting without setting foot in a dungeon? Can you farm for legendaries outside of dungeons? Do they all require 100% map, including PvP? I know you can buy some stuff with karma.
4) Speaking of karma, how quickly does it accumulate with max level events? I've been playing for a very long time off and on and my account only has 35k karma. What's an avergae payout of karma and gold for a level 80 event?
I know I'm not 'new' around anywhere on here, but just knowing the answers to these few things will help keep me focused on some goals to motivate me to level, as I want to accomplish some things in this game beyond exploration and map completion.
