And I hate that “at least you got something!” feeling because I know it’s just a permanent thing designed to do that.
As for wrath, yes. The best gear came from raids, because it was always the highest ilvl. With the exception of the start of the xpac and some early purples, BIS list was always raid.
Also, no one is asking you to indulge the argument. I’m not the one trying to convince you of my viewpoint. I’d be happy to drop the subject if you would just say “well, I recognize your opinion, and I think the answer is just “suck it up” because blizz disagrees and it’s their game” but you’re not doing that.
You’re attempting to convince me my opinion and mindset is factually or truthfully “wrong” which is not possible. There’s no flaw in my thinking or rationale, I simply disagree with the design decision and have valid reasons why. You don’t have to agree. You do have to accept that I’m not changing my mind and move on because you have nothing that will sway my opinion (hint: the only thing that will change my opinion ever is learning my opinion isn’t an opinion and is actually something in direct contradiction to a hard fact. Like “the earth is flat.”) Lucky for me, it’s really easy to not ever confuse opinionated topics with factual, universally true topics.
