Its extremely annoying to get items that range from 295-299 from chests and crafting. While YES, missing one or two power doesnt sound like much, but in the end, depending on how power increases are calculated, it could be the tiny difference that makes a huge impact, for example one-hitting a medium chaos infantry with a headshot as opposed to leaving him with 1 hp. Or gaining just enough to cleave through an additional enemy. I have opened so many chests after getting my first 300 item, and I constantly get 295-299 power in between 300’s.
I agree with this, since sub 300 power items are effectively just crafting mats quite soon after reaching end game.
