Don't get me wrong, I don't like the cost increase either... it seems patently stupid (which is typical Cryptic thinking when it comes to game economies), but the only saving grace is this whole setup is the Double Rep XP tokens for people with multiple characters.

My advice would be grind out in this system to T5 with one character, ignore the gear, and pump out the tokens for your alts. That will cut time for alts in half.

Does not change the fact that the gear is way over priced. I was planning to do it with just 1 or 2 characters then using the token to level up the others but the increased price of the gear means that even after capping the rep I am unlikely to have enough for more then one item of anything, I'll end up spending weeks doing nothing but these missions to get enough DM for 2 more items. Its going to cause a lot of burn out on these fights.

It also deals a heavy blow to the usability of the 350/5 token project. Its hard to justify spending 350 DM on 5 tokens when I'll need all the DM I can get for the gear. 3600 DM for a full space set is painful.
