I remember the days when character stats were simple. You had strength, dex, int, and those usual stats. You might have even had a few percentages represented as ratios based on those major stats. When you found a piece of gear, like a sword or a new pair of boots, it was obviously an upgrade or a better items — or it wasn’t. For quite some time, this transparent and easily observed way of understanding your character’s stats hasn’t been present in WoW. Things have seriously evolved… or mutated.
