Around the time people started buying these
from the item store NCSoft and Cryptic put together for City of Heroes/Villains.
Just so you understand, those items, and the items currently on sale in Cryptic's C-Store may offer gameplay changes, but those changes are not now, nor will they ever be game-breaking. Claiming that anything on the C-Store (or the NCSoft CoH/V item store) is game-breaking requires a detailed report analyzing how the item in question breaks the game and so far, none of the threads that claim this — that I've seen — has shown such detailed analysis.
If and when a thread comes out and displays a detailed analysis showing that game-breaking items exist on the C-Store, I'm pretty sure Cryptic will act accordingly and probably boost other equivalent in-game items to such a state where the C-Store item no longer seems "required".
