    Default Stiletto of the Serpent & Blade of Greater Purpose Should Not Co-Exist

    The run-down, for you non-rogues:

    Stiletto - 33.6 dps, 1.8 speed, 33 dex, 16 str, 15 end, 44 hit
    Blade - 33.6 dps, 1.8 speed, 33 dex, 17 str, 14 end, 44 hit

    Now, I will be the first to appreciate rogue weapons as much as the next guy, especially given the prevalence of cleric look my guild is personally seeing, but there is seriously no need for BOTH of these weapons. Literally every boss in the instance drops a weapon, and while yes I guess the axes could be used by Paragons if you tolerate bad Warriors in your raids, it's just an over-saturation of rogue weapons. Every melee rogue in my guild has two 33 DPS weapons at this point, so anything else that drops will be minor stat swapping (or, in the case of the daggers above, completely pointless stat swapping).

    Normally I wouldn't complain about extra loot drops but this is just beyond silly.

    Are they unique-equip, or do they look different from eachother?

    Stats -albeit the promary reason- are not the only reason to equip something.

    No they're not unique-equip

    and they look almost the same, unless you're zoomed up it's hard to tell the difference
