What?! Where is the logic here? Just because something has no end that means no one feels like they need to complete it? WTF.. Do you NOT understand that PAs give you ~20% to your stats and ~30-40% more HP (some of this is apparent HP from resists). These stats are insane bonuses to raiding, anyone that doesn't want them is either not a raider, or someone that doesn't understand the huge benefits you can from having max PA. Also, if anything no end in sight only causes people to become demoralized, not cause them to just not care.Yes, PA is a system without end, but precisely because of that, people don't feel the need to try to complete it.
TWENTY PERCENT TO YOUR MAIN STATS IS HUGE. THIS IS LIKE YOU DE-EQUIPING 2-3 PIECES OF ARMOR.
Would you raid without 2-3 pieces of armor? Any guild I know would promptly throw you out on your ***. I think you are GROSSLY underestimating the value PAs bring to the table and also GROSSLY underestimating how these PA stats are valued by the RAIDING community. There would be no problem whatsoever if PAs gave no stats. I could care less if there was a million levels and I only had 1 and everyone around me had 999,999. The fact of the matter is these are HUGE bonuses to raiding and they compel (force) raiders to log in and engage in meaningless grinding outside of an aspect of the game they find fun. It is like if Trion started to make all of the BiS raiding gear come from PvP or collecting artifacts or some other completely non-raiding related aspect of the game.
Myself and many others DON'T WANT TO FARM PA to be competitive in a raiding environment. Don't tell me people don't feel like they need to farm PA because that is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard.
