Thoughts of Interest and Conclusion
- Legendary Enemies mean better drops, consider this when reducing difficulty.
- Since you can scale on the fly, Arguably the “Easiest” method would be to start on Very Hard, and scale back as you play through. By having more legendary loot tables, you will get more powerful items and as you scale back, you will be equipped well while the enemies reduce in difficulty.
