What's lame is that the only worthwhile gear is in Inferno, and the elite packs in inferno are random luck: either they're killable or they're not. I think leaving a game because you reach a screwed up elite pack is more of a problem than switching gear during a fight.
Oh and if Blizzard could fix the blacksmith to make useful gear we'd play a lot more. Having to scan through the auction house where everything is in the millions of gold that's only accessible to bots makes zero sense. Don't even get me started on the RMAH.
