If the goal is to seek value with top equipment (as you say), but the equipment loses value, then the equipment must earn more than the depreciation of the equipment (which is often a considerble spread). Yet you're still viewing it as capital invested, so are an investor yourself.Most people owning and using top gear aren't really nervous about loosing value, because they treat the gear like it should be treated - efficient tool to extract further value. What these people are nervous about is not having more DPS for the upcoming grindfests, hence the still high price on buffs (rings) and the demand for new and better combos.
I can understand the other perspective, the one of an investor who didn't quite grasp the game and only sees gear as investment in pure speculation terms, these players rarely own gear but only fear for others that are owning, for the wrong reasons.
With incoming TWEN and Unreal one would be better standing on a top DPS tool to make sure they grind the best events to come to the game.
You keep looking at this game as a being a collection of Fabergé eggs... it's many things but not that... from that perspective yeah, there are infinite better opportunities for you out there in the "real" world. As per the famous cliché: go get them tiger
Potentially it maybe possible to achieve returns greater than equipment depreciation, if events deliver that. It's simply a matter of persinal choice regarding risk and reward.
There're many ways to play the game, to gain the enjoyment each individual is after. The only answer, isn't simply loading your ava with 100k+ usd of equipment.
I can achieve continous profits here with considerably lower capital investment. You view that as a fail. Whatever...I dont feel the need to pay to feed my ego.
