I must not undergear. Undergearing is the group-killer. Undergearing is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will improve my gear. I will permit it to equip on me and work through me. And when it is gone I will turn to epics for the next path. Where the gear has gone there will be nothing. Only my progression will remain.
Just read it and had to chuckle since I know the original source it's based on.
