so he basically tells you what the gear calculator already tells you. time well spent.
Except some people don't know about the gear calculator either, and pics are easier. Durrrr. --- http://i.imgur.com/qfsbZAm.png -- GT: Gears of Wario Now Playing: Borderlands 2/Battleblock Theater/Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
That said, the comments made by the OP seem to suggest they dont understand that raw damage can be overshadowed by things like Tidiore guns exploding when thrown or the downside of Torgue rounds being gyrojets.
Also, aesthetics are kinda important to some people (like me), which influences what we like.
Lastly, it doesnt make farming any harder. You cant directly manipulate, without mods, the odds of getting the gun part combo you want, and the item card and in-game stats when you test it already reveal the end result of all the parts bonuses, with NO CHART NEEDED. Imagine that...looking at the card and testing the weapon's damage and reload and such IN GAME!
