My question is when did you switch over to Hard and eventually GM1 difficulties?
I'm level 26, and I've got a Rare Colossus with all Epic gear* (because that makes sense...), but I don't know what my Power level is off the top of my head. I completed some Legendary Contracts on Normal and it was way too easy. I bumped it up to Hard and got my ass kicked! I was able to complete one I think, but eventually gave up on another and dropped it back down to Normal. The difference between the two difficulties seems drastic to me.
Everyone else is farming for their gear on GM1 so I assume that means I'm just terrible at the game, which is fine. I'm just trying to determine if it's me, or if I'm still underpowered for Hard.
