This is an anarchy. Think of it this way: Anyone who has worked oh so hard for a set of prot IV. All he needs is a helmet. 1.8 comes out and he suddenly realizes that all of his other noob friends have prot IV. You think, what the hell is this. My friends all have prot IV and I dont. The thing you have worked so hard for becomes so esay. Jealousy and confusion. Might as well add prot V (5) and sharpness X (10) if all this prot IV talk is true. Prot IV and op items everywhere. LOA will become a op, dried up, same old same old server in a couple months.
