I am struggling just getting to +6...
I Know That Feel, Bro.
The horror of it all..(basically same boat i just think everyone ends up with "luck" and "fails" throughout)... So yea I've got my 60$ dragon loe set to +7(triple racial TROLL left equip) and +7(double racial ALSO TROLL) w/3s each great pene.. 40$ for +7 and 20$ EET more recently..
But I also crafted a bunch of stuff that took okay enough mods using chips + low tranq etc.. Most times these days i can 3s 5-10 items in 35 flux though
I suspect the easiest way is to get items +7 is with G-points (gold $ _ $)
and I think that's not the whole total idea of a F2P game
because we did not use this method we have to go to farm and / or hunt alone to win more, but these days it is difficult to make a good amount of vis at current prices
fail 5 times or more in upgrade any item to +7 for someone who is dedicated to constant farming in the few hour that can play is really frustrating and annoying
