I play every season to get the pets but not as a competitive thing, mostly solo, but I don't spend tons of time on forums/websites so excuse me if these are dumb/already answered:
1. why isn't there an easy keypress combo to compare the moused-over gear item with what my Follower has equipped currently? It seems easy to me for the devs to have [ctrl][alt] combo compare the item under the mouse with that slot item on my follower...
2. why aren't there any mods or plugins for D3? I'd love a realtime DPS meter, or a gear optimizer like Mr.Robot or something similar.
2. It would violate the ToS/EULA. Personally I'd love it if blizzard was okay with some interface mods in D3 just like they allow in WoW but that's not likely to happen as it hasn't happened since D3 was released back in 2012.
