honestly no matter what class or game you play, 90% of the world will strive to do better. whats the point if numbers dont matter... people enjoy doing better and better. it would be like playing an mmo and saying "who cares about numbers,,,, ill just auto attack" wheres the fun?
the things i enjoy the most about RPGs, is always pushing my toons to their limit. it also kinda goes with the point where people say loot isnt impiortant... if it truly wasnt why would we wear any loot at all?
they are key an vitals points to the complexity of the game. and the competition between/among players is a key part of endgame material. if it were, there would be no strive to do endgame content.
