Although detractors decry (MMA) as a brutal, bloody form of human cockfighting, aficionados know it is a brutal, bloody, totally fucking awesome form of human cockfighting. -The Onion

I don't know the question, but sex is definitely the answer. -Woody Allen

This is a stupid decision. New stats and variable "on x effects" can be added to armor/weapons outside of upgrade slots (sigils or runes) in place of stats to create a wealth of potential progression outside of mandatory upgrades of increased stats. DAoC maintained the exact same ilevel for every single expansion it put out, and the only differential in power post ToA was in variable stats like +x% cast speed or +x% attack speed. Weapons that had these bonus stats had them at the expense of normal stats, to not make them too powerful.
