They could keep this in all realms if they do it like the gear map with rare gear in stage 1, ultrarare gear in stage 2, and elite rare gear in stage 3.
Change the wood roadmap to a mod-themed roadmap. Act 1 can be the existing wood map final stage, Stage 2 can be mod scraps, Stage 3 can be gold mod boxes.
Change the food map to a levelup themed map: Act 1 can be the existing food map final stage, Act 2 can be trainers (Stage 1 - Brady, Stage 2 - Basil, Stage 3 - Benedict, Stage 4 - Ulysses, Stage 5 - Aden, Stage 6 - Lillith, completion rewards - 10 Benedict), then Act 3 can be the 6* gear that should be farmable 2 freaking years after 6*s have been out.
Seriously, think about it. Within half a year of 5* toons being released, there was a farmable gear map that popped up about once a month. That was replaced with the current gear map that everyone hates but does it because it’s necessary. Two years after 6* toons were released, there’s still no gear map PLUS they added veterans rings and S class that require even MORE gear.
