“Sorry to burst you bubble, but the average person does not have such empty lives that they can throw away 300 hours to grind. Hence why the playerbase is so small in the upper difficulties.”
“Average person” or whatever it means, get an average loot.
Want better loot? Take books.
You want to take books but don’t have a team? Make friends.
Vermintide is a hard coop game. If you play casually, you’ll play on lower difficulties and get a lower tier loot.
Want to better loot? Invest into the game and make friends (again). Oh and reds don’t make you any better, playtime and teamwork does.
