yes , just like what people said above, having an option to turn off the stats of the item you have on is the perfect solution. that way I get to choose wheather I want the de-buff and the buff.
lets just say, I want to wear Yeti Head, but I don't like its De-buff it gives me, so I just simply turn it off. but the buff will also have to be turned off.
Problem Solved !
Now to get Eric to see this.
