This is how Arch linux is. You have to install everything from zero and you have the freedom to only install what you want to. There's no default when it comes to Arch linux.
If you want to use something based on Arch then use Manjaro. This is the best Arch based distro and my personal favorite of all linx distros.
I personally like the rolling releases of Arch, but rather defer installing 'bleeding edge' software until the bugs are resolved, that is why I use Manjaro (has its own repositories derived from Arch). When you prefer the real deal: you have to dive in and learn how to tailor it to your needs (wiki installation guide), it is a DIY distrohow to find or install by default arch linux pure with gnome or xfce or any interface but should be by default ? why we need install from zero

I bet you learned a lot installing Gentoo. Sounds like a real challenge and learning experience.if you by legends mean geek, then i agree with you I deleted Gentoo a day or two later, i just wanted to successfully install it for some reason.
I typed emerge firefox and waited about 1 hour to install firefox, so i said FCK IT and deleted it
