Just to refresh your memory, below is your OP in it's entirety.Quote from MetabolicFrolicI like how people have somehow managed to turn my post into something its not. I never once used the terms unnecessary or not needed. I just thought of something regarding the new BoA and thought I'd share it. I guess my first mistake was to even bring up the subject.Quote from ruksakOP discovers an instance where trading wouldn't be necessary....means trading is unnecessary?
Pretty dumb....dude......pretty dumb.
For all the undeserved hostility, I hope BoA does stick around and you touchy whiners can sit and sulk.
It's important to note the "so-what" factor. As in, after reading your OP, I said to myself "So what?"
If person 'A' finds a helm that truly is good enough to make a given build "better", and his friend couldn't use it, well.....someone else could. A stranger, a new friend down the road. Person 'A' could stash it in case someone he/she know finds use for it. Or, person 'A' could trade it for something they may find useful, given that person 'A' has no foreseeable use for it.
Killing trades via BoA takes away choices. Less is not more. Less is less. BoA is less.
New legendaries are gonna be BoA as of right now, and people are worried since it kills high end trading.
But if there was no BoA how often do you think this is going to happen because of the new drop rates and Loot 2.0?
Hey B, I was doing Rifts last night and found this sweet helm for your build. Here check it out!
Person B: Oh thanks A! But I just found a new Bow that totally changed my build. I don't really need it, but thanks anyways.
I think it would happen all the time...
