The updates that came along with Raebin made some significant changes
1- Enhancement changes- +3 necklaces and +3 earrings regen enough hp/mp that pots are a lot less necessary. Combined with the armor changes, characters last a lot longer in pve now, which is good since they're not giving away scrolls like free candy anymore.
2 - Dungeon drops 2.0. The old economy, especially on US, *****ed, and the great stuff was way too expensive for NORMAL PEOPLE (as in, those of us not playing 8 hours a day).
Now it just feels like rare drops happen more often and of course there are the 60 perfect drops, and it looks like old costumes are being put back into the system more often (oriental, now crusader), making them obtainable and affordable.
