Well, i could understand that if the items itself were bad. But in all three cases those items are very good (if not extraordinary), even if very very specific.
Slorak's Madness can give you up to 30% damage to Disintegrate. 30! I don't think there is a lot of disintegrate builds in the end game, but that weapon is certainly something that could make you consider one.
Pig Sticker gives you +30% damage to beasts/humans. While obviously not very common enemies in the game, there are some including almost wholeWhimsyshire (or even whole? I'm not sure about the flower enemies). Again, it is very specific as probably not many people visit Whimsyshire, but it can certainly may give you a push to do so if you'll be able to clear the place 30% faster, can't it?
And as for The Paddle, while it doesn't have any game changing stuff, it still have guaranteed: +Damage, +Damage %, LoH and Dexterity. Isn't that a nice combo that could practically guarantee you a high damage? That is if the 2h weren't bugged as they currently are (or so I've heard, I don't play them myself).
That's why i still don't understand the hate. The orange text may be funny but the items certainly are not. Their uses are fairly limited, but so are all items that boost one certain skill.
As for the fourth wall, I guess that depends on the person, as it doesn't really bother me too much.

I seriously don't understand all the hate that Slorak's Madness, Pig Sticker, The Paddle and all the similar items get.Are those properties useless? Well, they don't have any practical use, that's for sure, but they do put a smile on your face even if just for a moment.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Most importantly however, unlike the "real orange properties" that actually do something, those funny ones do not waste any of the six magical properties of item, so in effect they are just like any other legendaries without special properties.

You do remember that to play highest level of difficulty in vanilla D3 you've had to grind to level 60, right? Did you complain back then as well? It's an expansion pack, and it is the same for each and every game out there. You have to level to max before you can see whole content. Nothing new here, so if anything you can complain that Blizzard haven't developed completely new approach to that matter (which, as a side note, has worked very well for all those years), but it is not like you proposed any solutions for this either.Quote from HeyseusKristos
As for necessity to buy deluxe version to have more character slots, your statement is simply not true and it has been already clarified several days ago.http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/10973357478?page=1#6

Did Blizzard remove some of the legendaries from the game? I'm pretty sure that at some point there was Thunderfury (the one from WoW) on the official site item list, but i can't find it there anymore, nor can i find it on that list from Brady guide. I was looking forward to get it in D3 as i could never be bothered enough to get in WoW. Anyone knows what happened to it?Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
It even still have a page on wiki, so it wasn't just my imagination - http://www.diablowiki.com/Thunderfury
Edit: I was looking through that wiki and there is actually a lot of legendaries that were removed, why would they do that?
