Resplendent chests are disappointing

  • I play Diablo for fun. I like doing the random side dungeons. It used to be exciting to slog through a couple of floors of monsters and elites to see that shiny prize waiting at the end. "Over here!" someone would say on chat, and we'd all run over to see what goodies we'd get exploding up out of the chest.

    Now, it's barely worth stopping for. Resplendent chests can drop almost nothing. A couple of blues? Woo hoo? At least goblins still explode and drop gems and crafting mats. Resplendent chests don't seem to be better than any other chest.

    On that note, it's obvious that white chests are, in general, more rewarding than elites. I feel they need to bump up the amount of elite loot, or decrease the amount of chests in places like Core of Arreat. Reward needs to better reflect the effort put in.
  • Good news about Resplendent chest! We're going to buff the treasure that they yield, so that they feel more resplendent. There's been a lot of feedback about this, and it's definitely something we've noticed while playing, too. I don't have a time frame to share on when we can expect this change to happen, though, but it's something we plan to address.
