The reason why these people on the blizz forums don't get much loot is because they spend all their time in the FORUMS and not playing the game.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I've been watching streams from T1-T6 and you actually start to get quite a lot of legendaries the higher you play with the current drop rates and add to that you also get them from gambling now.
I totally understand the gambling aspect of loot since if you have hard time finding some piece of equipment because of RNG you can boost your chances a little bit by gambing a specific item. I did this a lot also in D2 even though they nerfed unique gambing chances to the ground when LoD was released.
Those guys with 10+ hours without legendaries.. they idle in town while writing QQ in the forums..
Nothing is final yet but they are getting closer to the correct numbers. It is just fail from most of the community to QQ in the forums about too high or too low drop rates.. it is freaking simple it is BETA. First you find the boundaries and start going to the right direction from there. Blizzard has way more data than a random beta tester and as Travis pointed out if you combine what people have been giving feedback the data is the same as Blizz has which is like 1.5h - 2h / legendary or something.
So maybe there is a bug in that RNG protection system who knows thats not a reason to do such a huge QQ. Just give feedback, report it and carry on testing.

Well imo it did. How many dupe hacks and exploits were created by these site owners because the value in it? Also all the botting really started in LoD when these item shops really started to run profit (pre-lod only some dupe rares and maybe sojs were sold in ebay mostly).Quote from TheRabidDeer
RMT wouldn't be officially supported, it didn't drastically change D2. Most people don't even use RMT for items in D3 even with official support, most of it is gold (or gems, as gem prices determine the value of gold for real money). You can still farm for yourself and your alts with trading in the game.Quote from Bleu42
Quote from TheRabidDeer
Why is trading and RMT a bad thing? If people are willing to go outside of the game to trade for money then that is their prerogative. Without being able to trade legendaries it is going to be a pain in the ass to gear yourself around a specific "game changing" legendary especially with the current droprates.
It doesn't sound too great to me to get a great legendary and be forced between a fun but weak build because I need more items to build around that legendary or a build that is strong and I put that legendary in the stash until I finish the set when I could have traded for it. This is exacerbated by the still decently large range on items and the still random rolls on what stats appear on the item.
Because creating RMT as the *best* way to acquire items is bad for the entire game as a whole.
I absolutely LOVE the way it's set up right now. I'm having a blast on PTR just farming for myself and my alts, and / or whoever I'm playing with.
Other side effects are also account theft, scamming, spamming that happens already now.. PVPgold.
Is Legendary always a Smart Drop? If so then okey. But still many of the Legendaries that drop fits your class quite well anyways since the stats are correct. It might not be a perfect piece for your character right now but if it is an upgrade wouldn't you be happy about it?
Quote from TheRabidDeer »
In 1.0.8 there are over 200 items that are legendary. In RoS there will be even more, and all of them can be dropped at any level. If you get 1 legendary every three hours, it will take thousands of hours to see them all. Beyond that, they only roll for your own class and you may get shitty rolls, so you are talking an exponentially larger amount of time to get the ideal legendaries for one class, let alone 6. If you are wanting to make a specific build involving a specific two or three pieces you may get them back to back or you may not see it for hundreds of legendaries down the road.

Except nobody can prove that someone used a third party site.
Quote from SniggleJake
If Blizzard actually banned people who used third party sites, this issue would not exist.
RMAH/AH was the best and quickest way to acquire items. Blizzard knows full well that by removing those, 3rd party sites will become the best thing which would be idiotic even if you restrict yourself from doing it because you realize it is idiotic. I don't care if people like to do it - too bad for them. No sympathy.
If you think getting items will be too hard - well too bad again - no sympathy for those who complain that something that should be hard in the game actually turns out to be hard.
Let us take an example: How many mempo's have you seen drop? How many have had crit chance? How many have had 6% crit chance? Now imagine every single legendary is even more rare than that (as instead of it being maybe one in 40 legendaries it is one in over 200, since any legendary can drop even a leorics)
This is what it is going to be like without trading.
I haven't found any Mempo's... not sure if I care about that specific item very much.. it is one of those OP items that shouldn't even exist in the game. I really hate when some item become defacto that pretty much every class and build must have.. same goes with many other items atm. Even if I could trade that Mempo.. i couldn't afford it EVER in D3 vanilla.. Okey maybe in RMAH but I'm not gonna spend 200+ for pixels.

My thoughts on PVP itemization is that you would benefit from the stuff you found in PVE. There should be a vendor that sells you PVP items according to some point system. This point system would be calculated on the stats of your gear, or in other words gear value (gearscore). This gear value would be the currency to buy those items.Posted in: PvP Discussion
So if you invested time to PVE and found nice gear for your character. Then you want to do PVP you could buy PVP gear from the vendor. Why we need PVP gear? To balance the stats to a reasonable level, probably need to replace stats like CHD to something else etc. We could also just have the stats automatically balanced for PVP but it might be confusing, when you enter arena your stats are way different..
Having 2 sets of gear would of course need a sort of switch so you could turn on the PVP gear.
Anyways this would still show the gear progression in PVP which for many must be an important part in Diablo games. This would also make people want to farm more loot to be better at PVP.

I been into the game again after quite long break. Maybe ½ year tbh. I regret that a little bit because I also lost all the friends from the game during that time.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
So nowadays I pretty much do some solo thing or some public games. Trying to level all classes to 60 in SC and finish Inferno in HC before expansion. I've been playing mostly self found but every now and then I go to AH. My main SC barb got quite many IK set pieces because I wanted to do that achievement to get full set before Expansion arrives and you have to find all pieces since there is not trading or AH. My main SC barb is most equipped from AH, but all the rest is self found (mostly found items with other chars i've been playing).
With the main SC barb i'm also trying to farm hellfire ring.
So overall its been quite nice to be back to the game. All i'm missing actually is some friends and play company.

I got all but WD as lvl 60 also in softcore so I'm planning to level that WD to 60 before Expansion and then try out in softcore first since the level of difficulty I heard has gone up quite a bit. So i'll test out in softcore first.. maybe blast to 70 quickly and then jump back to HC.Posted in: Hardcore Discussion
Also I will test some different classes and see which one I want to play.
12/17/2013 7:57:20 AM
My goal now before expansion is to get that hc inferno completed.Posted in: Hardcore Discussion
My 60 lvl barb just died a while ago and have started again now. Kinda sucks! I was at Act 2 inferno .. i dont know why but I tried out to farm some gear in MP1 Act1 and it didn't end so well.
Oh well time to make a better barb this time!

I played D2 from release in 2000 to 2005 very actively, after that every now and then. And the time I spent trading was like 1%..Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Most of the time I just farmed exp with my characters and while doing that I found better and better items.
In D2 you didn't need that much to do the end game even solo in 8 players. So you could just enter the end game and get good loot while leveling your characters.Trading wasn't very neccessary in that game. In D3 you are stuck in Mp 0 for a long time if you don't use AH.
Looks like in RoS you don't need to do much trading and AH to succeed in more difficult settings.

I don't think it's necessary. I think some of the streamers have been burning a billion of gold for enchanting some items in 1 week.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
So if you have a lot of gold you will just get slightly better items because you are able to roll the stats more often.
