    THanks yo uever so much guys!

    One thing I dont understand though. You keep talking about recepies and the likes, but I only get legendary recepies, not ancient. Anything I'm missing here?

    And can I from a rare item from the blacksmith get a legendary or ancient?

    The determination of "Ancient", regarding crafts, comes at the time you craft. The plan just grants the stock ability to craft the item.

    I'm just pointing out that bitching on the forums has kept you amused for years. Indeed, one would have to say, looking at your post history, that you've gotten more entertainment from complaining about Diablo 3 than most people get from games they like.

    Is it really that enjoyable posting these whines, month after month, year after year? Is there some point where you think you might seek out a hobby doing something you enjoy, rather than complaining about something you don't? It doesn't have to be computer related. Maybe cooking, or wood-carving, or folk dance, or something?

    You know nothing Jon Snow.

    I've spent ~500 hours playing Diablo 3 (just checked). Had a load of fun with it - for a time. And that is the point - the game has flaws that inhibit it's ability to attract significant amounts of people for longer periods of time. Can't you see that? The cycle repeats as follows:

    - New Patch with New Things - spike in the number of players
    - 3 weeks later the number of players is 50% smaller
    - 6 weeks later the number of active players is just as it was before the Patch (if not smaller)
    - Next New Patch with New Things - etc...

    I'd gladly play some Diablo 3 again - if there was any point to it. Until the utter pointlessness of the game beyond the item grind is fixed I will come back here with every patch and remind you of the fact that Blizzard in fact didn't do anything revolutionary with the New Patch™.

    This patch (as well as most patches) aren't intended to suddenly make people that don't play.....play. These are intended to provide a tuneup for people who actually like the game in it's present state. 2.1.2 was never intended as a magic bullet to salve quitters.

    Yeah.It would even fix several issues at once:1) Exploits like this one2) Players/characters being able to tackle rifts above their potential (i.e., everyone doing trials with DH or in group)3) No more "missing rift keys" for your group when you want to play with your friends, with whom you cleared a rift before already4) Not having to waste multiple hours on mind-numbing trials just to be able to play a weekend of GRs5) Progression would be bounties -> T6 -> GRs and not an unnecessary, unrewarding "no loot" event in between.And probably many more. Unfortunately Blizzard stated multiple times they don't want trials to go... we can only hope they make a 180 turn, as they did before (e.g., on the AH). This exploit is really terrible and demotivating, and removing trials would not only fix many issues and make the game so much more fun. 6) Try playing a pub Grift. It's fucking madness.


    Four players get a key in trials, they do the grift, upgrade the key and then one player leaves. A new player joins. We have to do trials again.

    Public Grifts are ALWAYS less populated than friggin' brawling games. BRAWLING games are more popular than Grifts. .....and IMO, much of that has to do with trials.

    Season 1 it's a big fail in my poinion and i'm talking about greater rifts, these exploits destroyed gr completely.

    So if they won't fix these huge problems leaderboard means nothing

    I think most of us went in to season 1 understanding it would have issues and that this was a live-fire exercise of sorts. Of course they'll fix it, believe me when I say, they want to fix it before the new season starts.

    It gets a little tiresome when every time a bug/glitch/exploit appears, all the sudden we pretend that this isn't extremely commonplace with an online game and we demonize Blizzard as too lazy and too incompetent to function well enough to provide us with an enjoyable gaming experience.

    Oh well shit if it was set dependence that you're mad at, I'm right there with you.



    Sets are really cool, but I feel the pendulum has swung WAY too far in the other direction. Where as before they were pretty bleh, now they are the biggest source of power by far. I get that having to give up 6 slots worth of single legendary powers should be made up by an awesome 6p bonus, but only one part of that equation is present; the 6p bonus. There ISN'T any combination of 6 stand alone legendaries that can stand up to sets. Keep sets how they are, they are really fun, but at least try to make all those stand alone legendaries close to as powerful. I hate immediately knowing that some combination of my Helm / Gloves / Chest / Legs / Boots / Shoulders are going to be already spoken for.

    To make the dynamic worse, more 6pc sets means more dependance on rorg. Which translates directly to 6 slots that you already know what you're gearing with. Kinda lame, not real excited about that. Blizz talked about possible options to relieve rorg of it's mandatory feel, but then they pull this stunt and so far, I haven't seen nor heard any realistic implementations that stand a chance at relieving us of rorg's BiS nature.

    Only this idea about all sets being 6pc, which actually does the opposite.

    This is a staunchly gear-centric game. No sir, you cannot escape the bounds of gear dependency. The gear does way more than that flimsy paragon system, that's for goddamn sure.



    You could have 800 paragon and it won't do for ya what a decent fuckin' helmet will.



    So....no. Gonna have to bear the brunt of BoA's tremendous load and gear up, cowboy. The super awesome good news is, Blizz plans to take a wet shit all over every legendary item by making the game even more dependant on sets.

    Wait, that's not good news at all, but it is news.

    I'm.... like really confused. Are you mad that a game based entirely on loot is loot dependent? And side note; Every difficulty under Torment can be argued as not loot dependent, as you can do them pretty easily in the rares you find while leveling.

    No, I like the game quite a bit. I enjoy the loot dependance and was just being direct about the game. Fan of BoA here. Self found extraordinaire etc etc.....

    About the sets; No, I do not like the signal flare sent out during the last Blizzcon that they intend on making all sets 6pc and they wish to continue to drive people to set dependency. It's friggin' lazy as shit, and IMO, they're doing this ONLY because it makes the game easier to balance across the board. Less surprises, easier to test and suss out exploits/bugs/OP combos etc.

    They should make decisions based on what's best for the game, not what's best for the development cycle.

    That being said, even under the purview of increased set dependency, there are enough interesting, inspired Legs (and more coming with each season) to allow players more freedom than we currently have, so that's a good thing.

    yea that was strangely and awkwardly angry on the loot dependence.

    lol.....my bad. I was just being direct. It is what it is. Imagine that? A loot-centric game that has a great deal of loot dependance? As far as lowering the difficulty to decrease dependency; I don't evaluate a game like this based off of low difficulty. How the game plays on it's max base difficulty setting is the proper prism to peek through, I would guess.



    Currently, t6 is easy enough that, while still heavily gear dependant, you can run all manner of oddball builds with efficacy.

    This question comes up all the time, and the answer is always the same. I don't know. That's the only answer anyone could give you.



    It's like you asked which ice cream should you buy, vanilla or chocolate. We don't know. We have no idea what your tastes are.



    span> I'm kind of worried about coming back from reading too much posts on the Blizzard webpage.

    Well that right there was your first mistake, sir. Don't go there and expect anything but a bunch of fucking dickheads getting off by upsetting other people. The last time I ever even thought to take a D3 hater there seriously was when I saw a player post "Game sucks. Bad game is bad".....then I looked and saw he had 737 paragon seasonal and another 600+ non-season. ....and he had just played that day.



    It all comes down to what you, personally, want out of a videogame of this nature.
