I don't understand how some people think that: get Legendary = You're done.
Go and find versions with better rolled stats...
If they made items that were distinctively better than all legendaries, they would just have reduced
long-term item choices to those items.
Really there is only need for two types of items in a loot game to fulfill all potential.
"Random" items. Also known as rare items. Everything is randomly rolled.
"Designed" items. Items made for specific purposes. Have at least one pre-determined stat with some purpose to it, but typically more than that.
In a perfect scenario, the two groups should both have equal potential for awesomeness. One through its "generic" rolls, and the other through its designed purpose.
The RoS crafted legendaries are just misnamed rares, that are called legendary so people will think they are more awesome, or something.
You could add White items to the above item groups, as in items with no stats. They are their own type of course, but not particularly relevant except as filler.
