Yeah i´ve seen players use real crappy colored gear to the point where they hardly even do any damage and totally neglect the better and far more common items. It sais something about the huge amount of common and rare drops and although the Rare Magic Item Mod at
adress the frequency of it, it dosent solve that stat, resist and dps bonuses on set, artifact and legendary gear needs a big overhaul. As Kruztee poined out it gets somewhat better at higher levels. WoW and Diablo players that are new to this game might get fooled, but its nothing that hasnt already been said in earlier threads.
