Also, the way you make it sound, SE somehow insulted RDM by giving it access to Almace? I am confused by this, and you're not the first person to allude to it either. Explain.
Probably the same reason the majority rolled our eyes at Sagasinger.
Giving us toys without pourpose is frustrating due to the stigma surrounding our melee aspects. Without a reason, a utility, to take the front lines with these prized posession, the items get looked at as just trophies to groups and we get tossed in bottom priority for all of it.
Makes it a touch more frustrating in each step in trying to push that performance. (And I like to push what I can do no matter what it is.)
Think how more desirable Sagasinger would be if it allowed us to rip high tier buffs of of difficult NMs, and we had a Utility that would allow us to actually be more useful in the front lines with it?
I probably would still not use it against Voidwatch NMs, but I could imagine quite nice to use against quite a few differn't Abyssean NMs.
And who knows, maybe they'll add more NMs that make it worthwhile to use the weapon on.
But aside from that... there's really no tie in to get these things.
