It's not a PVP game, which is the only real benefit of "hacking" the game. If someone's got uber gear, so what? Whether they got it by long hours of crawls, or by long minutes of modding, either it makes it easier for you to kill the boss, and get good gear for you, or it's too easy, and you just start a different game: no skin off your nose.
I didn't mean like wow as in actual content. In every other ARPG gear was king, and it was fun to compare and trade rare gear. working for rare gear was an absolute blast, but when someone can change configuration files and receive that gear, it makes that point obsolete.
I guess TL2 is catering to others who enjoy the point-and-click adventure side of things. I'm still not sure if I'll give it a try, I'll have to see what my friends are planning.
