I see this come up a lot, in a number of different MMOs. While there are people who believe that anyone who chases character power and effectiveness are somehow morally bankrupt, they aren't as common as they initially appear. Most people are perfectly happy with the idea that it's possible to maximize damage in a character. The protest usually comes up when there's only one way. Why just one way? Why not more choices? Why only heat vision for might? Why only dual wield/bow for precision? The answer, in my opinion, is that whenever the topic of power or weapon balance comes up a developer starts screaming and has to get locked in That Room In The Back That They Tell Interns Never To Go Through, and at least two others reach for a bottle of whiskey with one hand and a bottle of pepto bismol with the other.
