Do you want mobs to scale with ilevel?

A recent undocumented change made it so that mobs appear to be scaling not just with level, but with item level as well. This would mean, essentially, that you’d never actually gain in power in comparison to the mobs you encountered. You’d always be roughly at the same relative power compared to them that you were upon reaching level 110. This is a deliberate change that is not quite working as intended according to Watcher. But if it was, would you approve or disapprove of it?

To my mind it defeats the entire purpose of gearing if you never get any stronger. If all open world mobs just scale to your item level, why hand out rewards at all? I’ll just feel the same anyway, won’t I? There’s no point to getting better gear if that gear doesn’t actually provide a meaningful power increase.

But I’m as always curious about other people’s opinions. Would you want scaling like this implemented?
