Many weapons have a terrible name, I always thought that the name reflects their real strength, but basically, I can certainly more than 9 percent of the weapons are slag, only twelve weapons are really used.
such as Windforce, sledge-fist....
I certainly would not disagree, spend some time browsing through the high end players, and they are almost certain to be equipping the same weapons , some class even more so , say Demon Hunters. Barb and Monk got a wider choice of good weapon depending on their play style.
IMHO Blizzard need to diversify the itemization better. So that there are enough variety for each and every class for every level of play from playing Normal on lvl 1 up to P100. Its kind of boring when every other Barb I meet use a big Skorn.
Speaking of Itemization, I think the very first play level gear is rather illogical , no heros to be , even apprentice would venture out to kill demon without the very basic of protection I would say, so instead of naked, I think what Blizzard should do is to randomize lvl 1 on new created hero a set of chest armor, boot, gloves, and pants.
