Do you pick up all gold or leave smaller stack sizes to rot? Gold will only get me to back track if it is a shiny enough pile, but in general I try to vacuum everything. Sanctuary has enough problems of its own and doesn’t need my litter after all.

    The only thing that kinda bothers me it's the drop. I know he had no nephalem stacks but if those bosses only purpose is to get the mats for the ring ( meaning really bad loot other than the mats ) people will quit again after they got their ring. I hope they drop some other good loot so people keep doing the Infernal machine.
    Also a lil bit dissapointed about Ghom dealing close to no damage s: that was the boss I was looking foward to see with another boss.

    why would you even play if your "endgame" is to get a ring you aren't even going to use because you are quitting? you make zero sense.

    I do get the point. You complete the boss once to get the mats and after that you quit playing the infernal machine thing cos there is no point to complete it anymore if you dont get quality loot for doing it? Maybe not quit playing D3 but the infernal machine. Just more act grinding.

    The thing is you don't have to complete it only once =).. Once you have used the infernal machine, you have to craft it once again to be able to get to one of the realms again =) And I really hope so too, that there will be good loot on those uberbosses!

    If you didn't know, the Hellfire Ring has 4 random stats. Your first one will probably be awful except for the proc and the +exp, so there is plenty of reason to keep running ubers.

    It's clear that the intent of this system is that the acts are still the main farming area in the game. That's why you have to keep re-building the Infernal Machine. You're really not intended to farm the keys either, you're supposed to just add the key wardens to your regular runs so you occasionally get an uber fight as a bonus. You can also do them far more often if you want by coordinating uber runs with friends so that you benefit from eachother's machine drops.
