SE probably made accessories have number of slots to promote "gearing strategy" but as it is now its just plain dumb.
I have 3 brass rings 2 earrings and a chocker. They are level 18, now im level 30. I want silver ones. But what happens if i decide to "upgrade"? Instead of 6 accessories i can only use 4 and i would even lose accuracy on my rings.
Theres no need for balancing gear if you are buying gear 10 levels above. They MUST BE BETTER. So as it is now, switching from brass to silver is a downgrade.
SE should just get rid of this number of slots per accessory and let us fill them all. Helps crafters who will sell more, helps adventurers making it simple to upgrade pretty much like gear and weapons.
