Cordless RC Flash Question. Any need/benefit of off camera cord?

I am using OM-D in combination with Oly FL-50r, FL-600 and Metz 58 AF-2 wirelessly.  Am using clip on flash (FL-LM2) as wireless controller. Am using bracket to raise "on camera" flash when situation arises.  Shooting mostly events/candids and portraits in this fashion. My question: Is there any functionality loss through the wireless flash controller I might be missing out on. Or, in other words, is there any reason at all to purchase an off camera flash cord?
