No, you can roll very high primary stats on these, that alone gives you a decent head start. Yes, you still have to roll the other 5 properties, but you'll roll SOMETHING decent sooner than later.
Also, if I'm given the choice of either buying a 2 billion gold amulet or rolling amulets, say, 50 times for 5 million gold before I get a significantly upgraded amulet, I will take the BoA amulet.
Hell, even rolling amulets 1,000 times for 100 million gold before I get a good amulet will give me 95% cost savings. Would I want to spend 100 million in crafting something I can't trade? Probably not.
Five million? I'll spend that gold!
Casual players trying to craft will run out of gold & mats & then what? Where will they get the !@#$ to craft? Buying gold?
There's a difference between grinding 2 billion gold and grinding enough gold so that you can comfortably spend 5 million gold crafting.
One can potentially take months. The other takes days.
Have you tried crafting?
