So, most of us have seen the Ascended ring pic ANet posted in their blog. In case you missed it, it's this:
As you can see, it gives +2 to four stats and +3% Magic Find. Initially, I though this isn't a big deal. However, you have to keep in mind that Magic Find is this ring's main stat. The +3% to it is not like a +3 to Power. It's equivalent to almost 70 stat points in a "normal" stat or +3% crit damage.
So, if ANet introduces more Ascended gear, it will be noticeably more powerful than Exotics. That's alright by itself (IMO), but the fact that they posted this specific ring is disconcerting. Of course, it could be an accident, but it looks more like damage control and an attempt to BS players into believing Ascended items won't affect anything stats wise.
