It is more like a question about "epic" armors

I tried to make EPIC zamoran set. and I can’t see why it would be better than anything else.
I mean creating it is a chore. at lest 3x the gathering + you need the basic version of the same armor + you need an advanced station to do it as well as a normal station.

And yet only job is to take thrall put her onto the basic station to let her craft a flawless zamoran

That thing has waaay better durability thank god, more armor rating and good boost of the agility attribute too.

So why is epic not epic after all that much more work to get it???
(not to mention the feats points wasted to learn that thing.)
