How lucky do you get?

  • #1
    I have been playing D3 for some time now, and I have yet to find anything that sells for a semi decent price, and I cannot for the life of me find any upgrades I can actually use. I spend pretty well all the gold I make trying to buy upgrades, but the rate I make gold is just silly. I have actually resorted to picking up everything I come across minus whites, and porting back to town a ridiculous amount just to make the small amounts that keep me going. I have heard people tell me just to skip blues and only pick up certain yellows/legendaries, but it feels like even trying these suggestions I just cannot for the life of me roll a decent item to sell. Curious to know how other people make out with their luck, and how often you come across a decent selling item? The most I have ever made off an AH sale was 1.5 mil.

    Well I guess everyone is in my boat considering the amount of views and no replies lol, at least it's comforting to know i'm not alone

    I get good streaks sometimes, where I'll find a couple items worth 10-80mil, and then a bunch of ones 1-5mil, and that usually lasts about a week. I've been on a dryspell as of late though, a few legendaries a day, but no drops of any value. After building a set for my wiz, I'm back to broke.

    Ouch, I hear you there, I am trying to gear up a WW barb ( I know, everyone has one lol ) but I had played a DH for so long I was really excited to get into one :) Just need the funds now to even out my gear! I can do Mp 2 lol, but that's about it! crossing my fingers bigtime for that one drop that will help get me those few upgrades I need to move on. Hell if you can believe this, I have such bad luck with RNG that I haven't even been able to complete 1 hellfire ring lol, Sad story right?

    I wish I found even 1 item worth 80 mil LOL I havent had more then 4 mil at a time >.

    Before I say anything of real merit, can you give me the following information:
    1. Your paragon level
    2. Your total play time
    3. Your total elite kills
    4. Your total lifetime kills

    So you can tell me I have nothing on you? that I haven't put in 800 hours played? and that I have no right to complain? I know people IRL who are as smart as an eraser, and they get drops out their ass, farming act 1, 0 MP. I didn't start the thread to get bashed, I was simply seeing what kind of luck others have had with drops, trying to see if those items worth 100+ mil i've heard about actually exist, and sell for said price.. 320K dps sig tells me you're just going to berate me.

    I seem to vaguely remember getting an item worth 100mil many patches ago. Haven't really found one since then. I usually find things worth anywhere between 500k to a just a few mil. Nothing spectacular. Little sales is where most of my gold comes from. It's still fun to find legendaries though, even if they're not good.
    I AIN'T HAD NO SHOES OR NOTHIN' JESUS.

    Hey! Don't draw such conclusions from nowhere. You serious man? That last sentence is beyond stupid.

    All he wanted to say is that statisctically, you might be doing not as bad as you make it sound, but he can't judge that without the info he asked for.

    I personally also have times where nothing of real value drops for a long period of time and thats with max MF from paragons and rather efficient farming. I get a full inventory about every 10mins, ignoring over half yellows.

    I have found a few legendaries, just nothing particularly useful lol, and I tend to roll low stats, so I get into the 30k region lol, took me ages but I finally had a JC plan drop, got so excited because I hadnt checked the price in forever, just to find out it dropped to 15k lol. I will keep my chin up though and hope I find something good soon! Thank!

    I don't know where this hostility came from. I requested legitimate information. Why? Because I've seen countless—as in honest to God I completely lost track of how many—people post about how they never find anything. Then I see they have 5K elite kills and less than 20K lifetime kills. I'm not saying you're one of those people, but if you are, there's no surprise why you haven't found anything yet. The way this game is designed at the moment, you're not likely to strike the mother lode with that kind of progress.

    Yes, I have almost 1,000 hours logged into my account (over 800 on my wizard). However, I didn't start finding my 100M, 350M, 700M gold-valued items until I was well into paragon 80s. In fact, the first 100M item I actually sold was a mediocre trifecta glove when I was in my paragon 60s.

    I can count the number of 100M+ gold-valued items that were self-found... on one hand. And I have over 60K elite kills and nearly 1.5 million lifetime kills.

    My apologies, but in my experience, posting here and the MMO forums, I have had people ask similar questions and get on my case about not being " hardcore " enough. I suppose I owe an apology, I will get these stats for you Jaetch.
  • #13
    I apologize. Again, I have had so many people cut me down, and this was not necessary. I am sorry.
  • #14
    I appreciate your genuine interest to offer constructive help. Now I feel like a douche heh
  • #15
    I mean, if you're paragon 90 and you haven't found a single thing, and you pretty much pop every chest you find, flip every body, kill every trash mob that grazes your screen, elite and champ you find, and still haven't gotten a worthwhile drop... then yes, you are pretty darn unlucky.

    Otherwise, your time will come. How soon will depend on your current gear progress and your play style.

    Fair enough, I have not logged nearly as many hours as I have had alot of RL stuff popping up since august really. I am Paragon 40, so I suppose I can't complain really, and I don't have a decent MF set sadly, again I apologize to you Jaetch, my hostility was not necessary. Again I will keep plugging away! hearing that you guys have found some good items gives me hope, and I will keep trying!
  • #17
    I agree with Jeatch, but indeed some ppl just get lucky. I've seen ppl with bellow 200hrs played get 250eur items. There's no guarantee of getting better loot with max MF, super kill speed, higher MP and whatnot. The chances are higher. What im trying to say that a player who has played just minutes on inferno actually does have a chance to get a BiS item, but the chances are miserable and from there on he only improves them.

    Sometimes it's just dumb luck.
    Statistically though, you will get more/better loot the more mobs you kill with more MF that's all.

    Thanks guy! I do have hope now lol, I am sure I will get that golden item if I keep plugging away! Just nice to hear that it DOES happen :) Any suggestions on how you farm? Would love some feedback on what else has worked for people

    I was, I rolled a WW barb not long ago because of the OP farming power lol. I would love my DH to be my main, but the survivability of my WW barb rocks my DH farming wise at this point, with my current gear on each character anyways
