Where do you get the Ernil War Sword?
Maybe you guys noticed the following: Eradan is a character who get the best loot in early game (levels 1-15), while Andriel is more of a middle game character, she is optimal(with items and gameplay) at the levels 15-30. Now when you are a higher level, both Eradan and Andriel can't get much better... this is when Farin comes, he can have massive health, attack or armor. For example: his crossbow shot(the exploding one) can do around 140.000 damage. This is huge, when I played legendary, this was enough to kill both attack trolls in one shot during the siege of Nordinbad.
so you can pull a line through this:
For beginners in the game (or restarters) the character for the best loot is Eradan.
When you enter level 15-20 make sure you switch to Andriel, she has now the best loot.
When you enter level 25-30 you've got to switch to Farin, for end game his loot is the best.
Note: Of course it is so that the pieces of equipment wich are only ment for one character (ranger, champion or loremaster), are much better than the usual items.
