If you have spent any time at any of the level caps throughout the game the Devs have always raised character potential and then pushed the DCs/Saves/Etc towards the max obtainable. I am hoping that trend does not repeat itself here. But saying masses will equal it out is just saying that devs will ignore the power creep leading to players mostly getting bored with those occasional players logging on with their "I Win" button leaving everyone else in the middle or worse.
I like having a powerful character as well. I don't want the amount of time I have to spend playing an MMO disrupt the balance for everyone else though.
