I haven't upgraded any gear since August 11th except the minimum 50k gold every day during the Arky event on a single ring. I've done tons of unit merging, steeple crafting, bought almost 2 million in marks in the SS, etc, but have saved up almost 40 million gold now and haven't missed a beat. I found I was upgrading mediocre gear hoping to get perfect rolls and it just went onto units I don't use because the gear was mediocre. My new approach is to find really amazing starting gear such that a few bad rolls don't actually hurt it. Totally done upgrading blue gear and if I'm going to upgrade purple gear it either needs to start with 4 speed or really high % rolls. I've collected a few worth pieces over the past few weeks that I'll splurge on soon since I was lucky with my J. Kise pulls. I probably won't do a ton of upgrading until I start grabbing the S3 pieces.
I'm going to be even more selective now with the flat stat boost as far as left side gear is concerned and probably trash anything that is lower than Level 85 unless it is Epic.
