hey guys, i dont play gw2 all that often and haven't really done anything like dungeons or whatever endgame activities there are. mostly getting through the story. im currently up to one of the living worlds before path of fire, progression-wise. but its getting harder to play and survive. i have two 80s, necromancer (sand necro, forgot the name of the spec) and mesmer. neither of them have gotten any gear upgrades since hitting 80. and if i dont play carefully ill even die to a normal pull of 1 or 2 mobs. barely can beat veterans and avoid champions entirely. ive played through an entire expansion at 80 and not once i got a gear upgrade, is it supposed to be like this? can i expect the same from path of fire? is gear with higher stats locked behind dungeons or something? im not really knowledgeable about the game at all, so if im missing something obvious please be gentle lmao. how do i improve my characters?
