They are just following the builds of others.
Yeah, perhaps I should have written "intermediate" instead. By "new", I originally meant players who are still trying to gain reasonable all-around competence, not players who are totally new to the game. Very new players would just follow the recommended items while advanced players already have a general feel for when what item would be useful, even if they're not fully aware of the math behind it.
Intermediate players who are trying out new things would greatly benefit from such a change, though. And in general, Morello and the other reds are always emphasizing the importance of clarity -- this would improve clarity significantly and allow for more informed player choice.
