Why ppl always needs purple and golden mats?

Personally I wouldn't make gold stuff before max lvl. I might make some purple equipments like v10 or sth.
But I've been seeing ppl always bought them. Just being curious. Or maybe the reason is there are ppl keeping reaching max lvl? Then would the price of these things drop after a while, as there not so many new player as before?

    Some people have millions of gold, and since there is no retire home for old adventures, why not spend it.

    I've bought all the motifs I want and still making 10-20k a day from stuff I sell on the guild store. Just stuff I find while adventuring. So I git nothing to spend it on now. Just stockpiling purple and gold heavy/wood improvements. Considering it takes 35 alloys to make a full armor set, I'm starting to stockpile it now.

    I'm vet 5 so will probably make gold at 10 and then 14. Currently just making it blue every rank. Making my bow purple as I only 5 a rank and usually manage to do that.

    planning ahead. Only VR6 but already got the materials to make a VR14 Hist Bark set (5 pieces) and level them all to Epic rarity, and enough to make 1 legendary piece.

    Should have enough to complete the set in legendary form by the time i reach Vr14

    Just in time to scrap it for VR16 gear.

    That's the problem with ESO, 3 level cap rises (with the resultant obsoleting of hard-won drops or long-time-in-the-making- crafting gear) in the space of 15 months whereas in normal MMOs it usually happens at most once a year.

    Yeah keep enough mats to gold all v16 gear when it comes.

    Zos tries to bring some new activities. But wouldn't it better to be able to upgrade ur gears lvl? And what on earth does gear lvl mean? It just doesn't make sense. It's a brilliant idea to wearing out though.

    I think the economy functions better with new gear being needed and such new purple/gold items.

    Also people make new alts etc. all the time, so the demand for a new awesome max power set is there.

    I'd just save your gold mats for the VR18 gear that will be coming with the Wrothgar DLC in late 2015/early 2016. As it stands now, it is so time comsuming, and requires so many mats to make 1 set of VR16 armour, by the time most people have all the materials, VR18 will be here. :neutral:

    I won't be reaching v16 then yet. Even I did. I might put on whatever I pick up like I always do, as the new gears sound demanding much more.

    I have been playing since beta. When i reached vr14 it was my understanding that if anything vr14 ranks were going away, not increasing. So i made myself a lot of gold items. Different sets for different builds and such. I was happy with that. But now hey are going to be usless. I would never have made more than one set had i knew they were going to increase the vr14 ranks. I wasted a lot. 200 +. God. I feel jaded. I have no problem with the vr ranks or raising them. I just wish i was not mislead to think otherwise and have my gold mats back.

    The only legendaries I've made were the singles of each type I needed for the Achievements. I'm still hoarding the tempers for one day in the future when I actually hit max level before it changes! lol
