Quote from Talyn_RahlI think the Loot 2.0 changes, along with making legendary and set items BoA is a great idea.
This way you can trade blue/yellow gear and get yourself a nice farming set for endgame, but if you want REALLY good gear you HAVE to farm for it. Afterall this is an ARPG, farming for gear is kinda the point
I agree. Those against boa will tell you that rares/ blues will be worthless, but they just can't see the truth of things. How can you not compare almost perfectly rolled rares(tradable items) with mediocre legendaries(the ones you find)? For certain builds the rares are the obvious choice, since legendaries aren't game breaking, they just change the pace of the game.
Take the legendaries which give you a boost of speed upon wrecking an object and the legendary which allows you to move unimpeded through monsters. They're nice and all, but would you really choose them over perfectly rolled rares? You wouldn't need to... They're still nice to have, maybe for HC, but not a requirement. Most people are overestimating the power of the new legendaries. They are indeed build changers, but if the stats are not high enough, they might not be worth it.
