Couple of things:

- You don't really need high level gears. I'm using level 50 gears at level 80, and they work fine
- Resistances > damage
- You can buy really good gears from various vendor, just need to check them regularly

Are you hitting up the one shot chests? I actually turned off the yellows as well, as one green will sell sometimes for 5 or 6 or more times what a yellow will and I was spending more time looking at loot than smashing face and that wasn't working for me.

My experience with the nightblade is that it needs another class to go with it. I see you chose soldier but what AoE skill are you using for fast clearing? What devotions did you choose? Are you all damage glass cannon? Or are you going with heals and more tankiness? Where have you invested your attribute points? Bet your clear rate is really slow right? What damage type/s are you concentrating on? Can't believe whoever made this build ignored some of the best soldier skills in my opinion. Also two movement skills? Shadow strike and blitz? Did he explain his reasoning behind using both of them?

You can take everything I say with a grain of salt as my understanding of the game mechanics is still very new myself even though I have numerous characters and have finished veteran and normal with a couple of them. Had no issue with getting gear even with only seeing rare loot and above. Lots of greens are dropping but my clear speed is excellent, as is my movement speed. Are you getting all the devotion shrines? As they drop greens as well fairly often. Sorry for all the questions, last one for now. Are you doing any reputation farming? I find that rep farming especially for devils crossing is very fast and very lucrative in terms of crafting materials and less often rare crafting materials.

Learn what enemies drop and farm them if all else fails.

The spectral ghosts for example have a tonne of MI weapons that suit Nightblade. Farm Spined Cove and voila you'll be rained upon with spectral longswords, spectral bludgeons, spectral battle axes etc.

If you went piercing farm the dermapteran's for "dermapteran slicer's".
You can also try and see if you get a good roll on "Olman's Axe" one of the many free MI's you just have to find and pick up on Act 1.

Personally though, if you're already past level 35 just buy all your shit from Faction Vendors like everybody else.

Cool

Not opening chests?

I open every chest, shoot every pot and urn, even shoot the book cases and night stands since they drop books (EXP!) and loot as well.

Stumps and rocks, piles of bones, garbage heaps... crack them all open!

It's a hold over from when I played D2:LoD and busted every breakable object I encountered.

You had low but decent chances of getting something out of the smallest drop things in D2. You don't have them in Grim Dawn. Anything around the level of the small wooden chest is pure waste of time, unless you are in dire need of potions and iron bits.

Indeed Grimdawn_Betatest's assessment is simply false. You can also get legendary's from breaking furniture.

One of the first legs I ever got was from a breakable.

I can't remember ever having had anything else but potions, iron bits and components out of small drop items, which is why I no longer see any point into bothering with them once I have reached level 10-20.
