When I upgrade a weapon, say, getting a new sword, in some games the experience of using that new weapon is more tangible to me than in other games.
Especially in EQ, when I got a better weapon it seemed like I could really tell the difference. Not just in terms of the numbers, but in some other sense.
In most games, unfortunately, unless the weapon has a proc, the experience is much the same - other than numeric values.
This could all be my imagination. But even if it is, something triggered that imagining, and I would love to see that something brought back.
