Why the hell are people getting so worked over ascended items, there is no upgrade component, you cannot add runes on these armors. You havent even seen the stats of the armor, for all we know the integrated stats arent on par with the actual runes that can be put onto exotic armor. We dont even know for sure if there is a full set of ascended armor. So far all ive read on the blogpost was rings and backslots. Not the mention that the integrated extra stats seem to be different from the current existing orbs (such as ruby orb and whatnot). what that implies is that perhaps the integrated stats arent as useful to popular builds compared to the orbs that we currently have.
See first, then judge, didnt your momma teach you that?
