I used to think it was literally impossible to beat unless you did the W/G/G exploit.



Good times...

Maybe, but the Kroguard and Geth Infiltrator were part of the first DLC, and since then we've gotten maybe one or two kits that are up to their level.

The power creep really helped. Try running the original classes with the original weapons. It's a fair bit harder than using a Ghost or Geth Trooper or Paladin with a Harrier or the Wraith as it is now.

Also, GEAR made a lot of classes a whole lot better, especially grenade classes.

Oh, and the PPR.

I'm pretty sure the Crucible was supposed to harness the dark energy of Haestrom to destroy the Reapers

I remember the first info sheet they released said less then 1% of gold attempts were extracted.

Despite all the new classes my go to gold characters are still quarian female engineer, asari justicar and original krogan sentinel. But I do agree with TC in that I used the think gold was near impossible. I remember my first game, I was terrified to see two atlases and two phantoms out at once. Now gold seems normal and silver is just boring unless you're testing something new out. Still can't handle platinum though

I agree with the assertion that the new classes helped a lot. Only a couple are still decent enough to perform niche roles, like the salarian engineer for tech explosions or the asari adept for warp+throw, but they arent really good enough to be go-to classes for platinum. Also, look at the health/shields for those old classes; for most, 1000 of each is only an option at very high levels, now some of the new classes are pushing 2000-3000, depending on builds.
