Actually, that is incorrect. Upping my level previously actually improved a notable thing - the amount of health in my health bar. This made fighting certain automations easier over time. You’re getting complaints about fights being hard right now for precisely that reason.
In further case, if my in-game progress isn’t reset along with my level, I won’t have the same amount of quests to revive said level as a new player would, which would place Sierepica Fuzzywalker the character at a disadvantage in comparison to all the newer characters. And I like Sierepica Fuzzywalker. We’ve spent some good time together, you know? Granted, I could Aether-cycle the Great Engines to level up, if that feature is still available, but that defeats the point of the professions, I think, right? (And having my progress reset would just be annoying.)
In any event, I put the time in to level Sierepica to 25, so here’s your petition for level 25 pro stats please.
