The Best Idea Ever for re-working the puzzle ring:
IMO, since the massive increase in legendary drop chance, the Goblin ring should be completely reworked. It should instead be a mats goblin. Meaning, with ring on, the gob should pick up all whites, blues and yellows, salvage them, and give you a dump of mats in town.
There is nothing more annoying as a high level player than having to farm whites in order to craft, since it is the act of picking up these items that takes all the time, not the killing of the demons.
That would be a pretty cool idea. I think that It should be reworked to the Goblin picks up your Whites, Blues, Yellows and converts them into crafting materials at a 50% - 75% rate. Would be so nice to not have to pick up all of your items for mats.
You might for T6 rifts (or bounties I guess), which is currently the only place you'd need it really. Once you get a good 6 set bonus build going, you can totally skip out on using either of those rings and still mow through enemies in T6.
I think the idea is pretty solid, as it at least has a use for a particular type of farming.
sounds nice, but i think then D3 would go more and more to an auto click game... i mean just slashing through mobs for hours and hours is simply annoying and exhausting ... i see the salvaging process as a pause of recovery from "stress" of the rifts
Just have it that once you have gotten this ring you dont even have to equip it for the goblin to do its thig, more like a charm, cus lets face it, your not gunna use this over soj unity rorg, no matter how good the idea might sound.
You will for mat farming. SoJ/RoRG/Unity offer very little in the way of benefit for obtaining mats. Fractionally faster clear speed and that's about it.
