Sky's old content now--1.5% droprates on Ro'Maeve Water and Diorite are really unreasonable these days, 10% should be more like it, and spawn timers on timed Sky NMs should be lowered to ~30 minutes.

Thanks.

I am usually against making all sorts of things easier, but in the case of this, it makes a great deal of sense.

If you are going to make formerly good gear mediocre at best compared to new(and not all that difficult to obtain) content then don't leave the old content just as hard as before.

Except it isn't just as hard as it was before. It's significantly easier, what with 10 more levels, and some awesome gear.

Difference between level ups and addressing one particular piece of content now isn't there?

It would be ridiculous to make every previous event harder just because of level cap, especially when they are rewarding gear for lvl 75 players.

And if it wasn't obvious from my agreeing with the OP, I didn't mean hard as in killing Byakko is just as tough as before, I mean hard as in difficult, a pain in the *** to keep players around as your ls is waiting on one NM to spawn just to complete a pop, or spending a couple hours farming diorite while if lucky getting 1 or 2.
