For RaO, switch to a devour as its auto attack will hit twice giving you 2 stacks of might. I typically use it when stability is needed for a boss fight, but whenever some extra damage is needed along the way is also a good time to use it.B
I don't mind the new system. I can play enough to get the daily 4-5 times a week and finish the monthly. For us already 80 it does seem like a grind to get 35 laurels, but for a new player just starting the game it's probably great. They can do the daily easily while leveling up and once they get to 80 they probably have close to the required amount for the amulet.
