Can't wait for loot 2.0 ><
Until you already have that legendary and it drops again. Then you're eventually stuck deciding between is it worth playing while having next to no chance of getting an upgrade vs torturing yourself trying to get perfect gear on the console which makes it hard to trade.
I think D3 was a testament to how long the majority(read not us) will play an ARPG that they aren't getting upgrades in or a real sense of progression. Paragon can only help so much.
The choise of words here makes me believe you do not like playing the actual game and hunting the items.
"Torture" yourself? Having D3 as a Testament? If anything, this would be the time for celebrations if anything, given the oncoming updates.
I like finding upgrades but the simple fact of the matter is with good loot dropping frequently getting upgrades becomes harder. It's just a fact of how the system works. I think long term without the rose tinted glasses.
Do you understand how much harder it is to find an item that has 6 perfect stats vs an item that has 6 top 5 % rolls vs 6 top 10% rolls? The torture is trying to get perfect gear with the trade system on the console.
My point is that when d3 launched ppl quit because getting an upgrade was few and far between and the content wasn't tuned properly. With loot 2.0, if the console is any indication, getting upgrades will come fast at first and rapidly diminish.
It's going to be the same thing but this time you'll have a higher quality set of gear before you hit the "no upgrade/progression". It's a fine system for me because I want perfect gear. But for the majority, they don't care about a 1-2% difference. At least not enough to keep "hunting" for that drop.
All that I'm saying is improved drops are a good and bad thing. Very few people care to look at all angles though.
