Aren't +stat bonuses from gear completely useless now?Follow

Now that we get 150-200+ of all attributes at level 45, wouldn't our gear with +4 to all stats be near worthless now?

I mean, what's +4 mind from a jesters cap when you already have 220?

Also we have like 200 attack, and our weapons give +30 or something.

Wasn't stated in a interview or lettter, that stats from gear make a bigger impact then your natural attributes (not sure how this works out, sounds confusing at least) and you got to look at the whole picture, lets say every pice you have is +5 MND and you ahve 220 MND natural, 10 pieces of gear = 50 mind, thats a quite big boost.

I'd like to see a middleground and not super inflated stats on gear like WoW has, espec since poitns distribution comes back in 1.21(or later?)

I'd actually prefer they not bring back point distribution and put time into a Merit/Bonus/Etc. system that serves as beneficial for non-group based end-game content. That way there's specialization that can be achieved through a system that provides chores and things to achieve after hitting the level cap between group content.

Argument of the beard, really. Attack+30 isn't much in itself, but start stacking it across your character and you have a significant bonus. That said, it looks like you should be putting materia into your weapons/armor to make them give a high stat bonus. Put one of those attack +42~50 materia on your attack +30 weapon* and you have attack +80. If you really have "like 200 attack," then that's around a 40% increase from weapon alone! o_o

*to be fair, attack +30 on a 200-attack-character is still a 15% increase, which seems huge to me, so I don't actually know why you're complaining. XD
