Should weapons have stat requirements?

MMORPG weapon stat requirementsEven though most MMORPGs have equipment that requires character levels and class requirements, they also have stat requirements. Such as warriors need a certain amount of strength and dexterity to wield a sword or mages need a certain amount of intelligence to wield a staff. The problem with this is that it really gets in the way of specific class builds that players want to make. Because if players decide to go with a pure strength warrior class, they would lose out on all the powerful weapons they can wield.

I don't get why nearly all weapons and equipment need to have specific stats. This can be very frustrating later on in MMORPGs when a player is higher level and requires a lot more of a certain stat to wield a weapon that's ideal for them just because they didn't go for a specific build. And the only alternative is to either keep leveling or in a lot of MMORPGs purchase a skill reset scroll/item from the cash shop which is equally as annoying and frustrating.
