Funnily enough I believe the faceguard was the catalyst to the entire discussion re-emerging. On release, it wasn't received in an overly positive way as it usurped a BiS item from a high level boss with a medium level slayer creature.

The fallout from that was a string of meetings where we discussed as a team what needed a nerf and what required a tier adjustment but unfortunately this was delayed quite heavily by COVID and then TBL. While some things may seem trivial now I can assure you there was a point in the past where players were very concerned about it. Otherwise, it wouldn't be on our agenda.
