Guys, less pointless spam, and more constructive posting, please.
I think the whole random itemization will depend on how big the chance is for those extra stats, and how useful they will be. I'm actually okay with a more dynamic crafted gear market IF, IF, IF that means that 1)I can keep crafting throughout the tier and be useful with my profession 2)there's enough materials so that we're not strangled by limited supply driving up the prices.
Tbh, I kinda liked the current system as well, where the product was crafted through a cooldown over a semi-long period. It didn't last long but there was some market for the pieces at first at least, and it was an equal opportunity market, not just limited to who had access to raid drops anyway (which shouldn't really be the target of crafted gear).
We'll see soon enough in beta how the system will work and how to best make profit with it, but for now I'm okay with what they are planning since it means there's most likely going to be a longer period where our crafted gear stays useful (since you can craft a special version that someone will find interesting to use even after the initial tier is underway).
So this presents a moral dilemma. What do you do when the "perfect" crafted item is proced. Do you give it to the guy who gave you materials to make it? Or do you give him back his materials and keep or sell it?

Seriously, more RNG on crafting seems like a bad move, but I suppose they wanna try and keep materials flowing out of the market and make crafters keep trying in the hope of getting that uber-valuable Manbearpig Hood to sell for phat goldz.
Things change. During new xpac's lots of things change. If the thing that makes you gold now doesn't make you gold then - than change the thing you are doing to make gold.
It's how the world work, real and game. When change is the only constant, you have to change yourself to keep up with it. Stagnate and you'll be left behind. If you demand change doesn't happen, and were able to get your own way, you'd cause the entire world to stagnate which would end up being a far worse thing.
When change happens, adapt and overcome. Roll with it and be the first to adopt the changes and you'll always come out ahead.
