Wait, if legendaries aren't even really useful statwise, then what's the F'n point of investing so much time and resources for a bunch of crappy weapon skins?
I'm with you on this one. So.. I get a cool looking item to stand around -WHERE- exactly and look cool? That's another thing with this game, there is no normal social hub either where everyone seems to gather around. Even if they did, "hey, your weapon looks cool, but you're a fool for using it in the game because you're gimping your own stats". For all the time and effort that goes into crafting those items, I'd at least exact them to have the RIGHT attributes and maybe even a cool bonus feature.
However, all in all.. I am totally underwhelmed with the looks of gear/weapons in this game..I hate to say it, but even as old as WoW is, their gear looks better, and Rift as well. For a game that so many proclaim as not a stats-based game.. you'd think that GW2 would be WAY over the top in looks.. sadly, not even close.
