Rift Guardians on Minimap
Have you ever finished a Rift (or GR) and realized the Boss was nowhere to be seen? It seems like in a future update the devs plan on making the Rift Guardian easier to spot on the minimap once you fill the progress bar, so that you don't spend valuable farming time looking for it. They also plan on improving the code that determines where to spawn the boss in the first place. Read below.
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)Great feedback. We agree that it can be frustrating to have a Greater Rift Guardian spawn in a location that is unclear or unspecified, especially if you’re running down that timer. Right now, if a Rift Guardian spawns on an undiscovered part of the Rift map or at certain distance away from the player, sometimes the indicator will not appear. Though technically not a bug, we still want adventurers fighting the Greater Rift Guardian and not the Greater Rift map, so we’ll be working to improve this functionality (ideally making it easier and more consistent for players to see where a Greater Rift Guardian spawns) in a future game update.
With this, we’re also looking at tuning and improving the AI that determines where a Greater Rift Guardian can spawn to begin with.
Also, this is not just a greater rift problem. This is massively annoying in regular rifts too and should be remedied there as well.The updates would apply to both regular and Greater Rifts.

What Are We Voting On?
If you've never joined us before for any of our previous Play Your Way builds or livestreams, you might need a quick refresher on what this is all about.

Torment 6 vs GR 25
By now, most players should know that GR level 25 is the rough equivalent of T6. With that in mind, ChromeOnRust has put together some statistics from his runs to see which of these two can be more profitable, in terms of Legendaries, Blood Shards and Experience per hour. Watch below!
