OK, so here's a quick one.
I have a sword, damage 15-22 which is white.
I have another sword, damage 15-22 which is gold.
Neither of the weapons have any modifiers on them, for all intents and purposes they are the exact same weapon other than the colour...
Is there any difference? Because I have tested this and it seems to me that the Gold weapon does more average damage than the plain one.
So... Are rare/uncommon weapons naturally slightly better than plain white/blue weapons, or is there no difference at all?
