regarding crafting your tal amulet with bounty mats, I recommend doing that with the 10 db / 10 fs receipt. it's much more important to get a really good one with the proper stats than an ancient one where you can get 500 int, which won't help you all that much.
You can farm the mats while farming keys which is the most important thing and don't need to go for bounty runs.
It was the only thing I've used my mats on and after ~15k dbs / 15k fs I crafted a almost perfect one (and several very useful ones on the way)
stats are 96 chd, 9,5 cc, 8 cdr (rerolled), socket
If you also searching some other amulets (travelers, etc) I feel like yes bounties is the way to go there...
Primals is the same for me. Every 8-10 days a primal on average (and a shitty one too, ofc ). But it's not like Primals are important anyway. Maybe a weapon would be nice, but then again I won't craft a weapon with bounty mats since the chances to get one are so very little that I overall just pray to RNG. Farming bounties won't guarantee me one of those so I wont do it.
And yeah don't care too much about botters. I think everyone knows who's cheating and who is not.
Given the length of each line you wrote i expected some kind of song lyric. Imagine my disappointment when there where no rhymes. Other than that, if you do this for fun, why care for bots at all?
I can not enjoy or fun being unfair. I do not like collect db or white items. I do not enjoy doing bountys all days.If a person is spending time and labor in something,he wants some result. And I can not tolerate cheaters
I check records 7000 rifts completed. ( girft + rift count or only rift count I do not know)
1rift 6,5min+- (salvage go town open rift time)
The real problem is that even if you get a primal ancient one it can come with 2 or more bad rolls so an ancient one will be better. That's happened to me 2 times alredy. Just don't focus too much on perfect gear and focus on xp/augments.
