add 120 hours for the adapted set
add 160 hours for all the costume unlocks

+5 hours, 1 for each tier unlock
total time: 1853.6 hours or 77.23 days per every brand spanking new toon.
that's just the waiting time too! insane, no?
the best part? after all this farming, what are you going to do with your new found sets after waiting all this time? more farming. LOL... oh the irony. all the while, picking up the slack of all of those around you who haven't completed the same grind. If you thought public queues and some private games were bad? Just wait until you have all these new, completely under geared guys trying to participate.
Solid math, and you can't argue with numbers! This is just wrong, pre-patch I was able to outfit a new character mk XII STF set (no weapons) in about 2 weeks.
As for the omega skills, I was under the assumption that you could change skills. But if you wanted to switch the skill, you'd have to re-upgrade them in the slot and have to pay for it. But if it's permanent, and no respec? Yikes!
