She said they will be boosted to match the stats of better weapons when better weapons are introduced. If you don't care for legendaries (I don't myself) just get one of the better weapons when they are introduced.
you are right, mate, i misread it and thought legendary will have better stats than ascended!
My biggest issue is that i have to get new gear on one specific dungeon (so far) and i have to get a legendary weapon, which i never planned to have. Why? because Linsey said that Legendaries will get the highest stats.
I haven't forgotten it--which is why I dislike this shift. I was told the exotics I worked for would have the best stats. I don't mind doing a new dungeon, but I don't want the new gear to replace the gear I already worked for. If I had known that gear would be replaced in a few weeks (I got my exotics recently) I would not have spent so much time getting them. I would've treated it the same as the gear I got while leveling. This is my only problem; I was told in advance that exotics would be the best gear in stats, and now they are saying they're not.
Exactly, i got my set for some time now (had the chance to plays 10h/day), but i still don´t like the change. People will chase after the ascended stuff and treat exotics as level gear, noone will buy them off crafters, noone will do the old dungeons and the variety you got from runes will be pointless, because the ascended stuff from this single dungeon will be the ultimate goal.
