I got a kick out of this comic, especially since I've been playing quite a bit of Asheron's Call lately. AND IT'S SO TRUE. Like, this comic is a thing that encompasses most, if not all, of the MMOs I've ever played. I mean, I feel like I can pick up a sword called "THE MOST AMAZING SWORD EVER AND IT'S MADE OUT OF DRAGON BONES AND UNICORN BARF!" and someone will be all, "PSSSH. My Mere Dagger of Buttsex has has higher stats than your THE MOST AMAZING SWORD EVER AND IT'S MADE OUT OF DRAGON BONES AND UNICORN BARF weapon."
Oh well. I guess that's part of the MMO territory. AND I STILL LOVE IT SO HARD. Although, admittedly I rarely compare each and every stat. If I'm choosing between two weapons I'll, uh, look at the monetary value. Because that's totally legit. But not really. I've lost many 'a good weapons that way.
Yeah. I gotta work on that.
