Yellow Loot In The Division Is Useless Right Now

Spread the Word!

I almost have 70 hours in The Division and so far I’m really unimpressed with all of the end game loot.Β 

I’ve been farming for pheonix credits for a while now. I log on everyday, do my daily missions, and have fun with my friends farming for better loot or crafting it myself. 80% of the yellow loot that I’ve found, or crafted, is useless. I thought yellow loot would be similar to Destiny.

In Destiny yellow loot takes your stats up by a lot, but in The Division it barely raises anything. I’ve been better off with my purple gear until recently. I finally got some good rolls on my gear, but I’m still left unimpressed by yellow loot. Yellow loot should be head and shoulders above purple loot and it’s not. It’s only slightly better or slightly worst.

I wouldn’t mind if a patch addressed this issue because right now I’m questioning whether or not it’s worth grinding for all of the yellow loot when the gear I’m using now is better then 90% of the stuff I make or find from boss drops.

I’m getting pretty tired of my main character. I’m most likely going to make a second one pretty soon, but I kept help the disappointment in the top tier loot right now. Hopefully as I keep playing I’ll start to find some better loot, but right now The Division is really testing my patience.

Do you play The Division? What do you think of the yellow loot?

    I think I might get this when the price comes down, but unfortunately my friends aren’t playing it so I don’t know if it would be worth it playing by myself.
    Premium loot should always be special in my opinion! Worth working towards. Hope they fix it.

      Considering it took me about 60 hours to get my first piece of yellow loot I’ll consider that working for it :].

      I reviewed The Division already. I recommend waiting for a price drop because it has a lot bugs at the moment. Other then that it’s a great game in my opinion.
