i like to pvp but its hard to + gear when extracts are insanely over priced and the only way to get them is to buy them with real money
Actually, atc's have chance of extracts and enr extracts from the stage 1-2-3 boxes.. Also, dungeon dailies have a chance of them from their corresponding boxes as well.
With 'chance' being over all 'rare' so to say, but not really from the atc boxes, most atc's I get at least one extract, if not an enr (of course there has been several atcs without either, but still..).
Keep in mind too, say you have rank b gear, you can easily use rank A rub/pel/ext/enr on those gear pcs. when it comes to plussing. As long as the pel/rub is the same or higher, you're good to go. (of course the typical mind set is 'Naw, this sucks to use rank A, or Rank AA ext/enr on rank B gear, I'd rather save them for later when I get that rank gear!!'.. But, what's free is free, and down the road so to say, you'll still get more free! lol
