My luck finally, sort of, turned last night after those "imba" taskers that are totally useless for my wiz...
Initial dmg roll was 1180-1430 range, so it was pretty much a given. Can be a bit sad that it's 2% dmg and 3% CDR (and CDR instead of vit), but oh well, beggars can't be choosers, right? And hey, atleast I get to use EE now!
So okay, after my last(and first) whine here, I got akhan gauntlets in the same night, or on the next day. Maybe it will work again.. please?
Two words: "Ramaladni's Gift". I even can type it's name correctly now. 2 gifts per 470+ paragon levels on ssc :/
It's funny how some people already have like 30 gifts since 2.1 and others barely have 3... Stupid rng
I think they should give us the option to trade in something for gifts... Something like souls + gold or flawless royal gems + gold or something along those lines.
I've had 10 gifts drop so far since patch. Used 6 already (Kridershot, Demon machine, 2x Helltrappers, 2x Furnace). It kinda sucks if you find something and you rush to use the gift on it and then a short while later you find the same exact thing just with better rolls... instant waste of gift *facepalm
The topic was, essentially, for the top 1% rarest items, a "good roll" should be guaranteed. The OP doesn't suggest what he thinks a good roll should entail, just that it should be guaranteed.
The responses are what sickens me. At the time posting this, a unanimous +1. It sickens me, it really does. Back before 2.0, the roll ranges had such a disparity that players had a legitimate bitch. WD Mojo's, for example, could be utterly useless. Leaving the player feeling robbed.
But Blizz did a fantastic job IMO shortening this disparity so that top-tier item types could roll between good and godly.
I want ALL items to retain a roll range that allows truly great rolls to stand out, while, in the case of low end rolls, still be quite useful. If it's not particularly useful because the roll wasn't competitive with what you already have, too frickin' bad. That's how I see it. I certainly don't want to find a poorly rolled Flying Dragon for my Monk. But if I do, I man up and hope for a better one.
Too much entitlement ruins the thrill of great drops with great rolls. I remember when a clanmate would find an Rorg (for example), everyone in the clan would spam the chat with "GRATS, gratz, GG, congrats". Nobody does that anymore because it's too easy to find one. As it is, if you find a very well rolled 1% item-type, people still congratulate you and share in your excitement. If the people in the thread I linked to had their way, that too would disappear.
I really don't understand what happened to Diablo players.
I agree on this one with you. In the rorg example, I had my share of bags, pre 2.1. And though it was grindy as hell(isn't it the reason we play d3?), and when I finally got it, it wasn't anything special. It still was very rewarding feel.
On the topic.
Got this beauty in my stash for quite a while. Maybe it's not perfect, maybe not eu best, but still amazing rolls if you ask me. But getting a gift was such a pain for me. Being almost 500 para on seasons, and getting only 2 gifts, was not very cool. But, hell, you get what you get.
And finally, yesterday, a guy from clan, gave me ramaladni's gift. Thank you mate, I really appreciate it.
Now to find even better one, and whine again, that I don't get damn gifts :D.
That is a fantastic BoP. As well, exactly what I mean. I've found a few with OK'ish rolls. But when you nail down a set of rolls like that on a top-tier item, the feeling is immeasurable and with "guaranteed" high rolls, that feeling is greatly diminished.
farming tnts on my dh since a month already para 440 found 3 tnts all rolled strength as main stat and shit affixes ty blizzard
Comments like this just make my blood boil. Why not tell us about the good rolls you got? Always with the negative for some of these people.
Look at extaz101's Crusader weapons posted just above, one of them damn near perfect. I bet that dude is proud as shit for having them, and if some of these whiny bastards got their way, there would be little reason to be proud of such rolls.
BLEARGH! I CANNOT GET A DAMN LEORIC'S CROWN! BLAUUUUUGH. I think I've spent somewhere around 30k+ shards in the past couple weeks on helms and gotten multiples of every set helm I could ever want (Including 8! thorn-set helms)
Speaking of lucky/unlucky. I was in my stash yesterday and I have like 5 or so Unity's just sitting there, and I know I have two on my Monk/follwer, which I wasn't on, was on my WD wishing one of those was decent, and I think my follower for the WD is already wearing one, so...aren't these one of the things I hear people always saying won't drop? I have a bunch, and most of them stat wise/roll wise absolutely suck. And yet I don't have a Tall man's finger...
Unity's droprate is not particularly bad. I believe it and SoJ are only twice as rare as the baseline rings. I always feel like the people boobing about these must be uber-casual since it really doesn't take much to amass a collection of the things. Like the poster a couple above me, I have about half a dozen in my stash and like 2-4 out on various followers. That's from roughly 150 hours of playtime.
Played on my WD last night and had a decent run! Kadala gave me the Jade head piece which allowed me to pull the boots outta stash and start using 5 piece jade/rorg, not optimal but I can see how the build works now.
And then, off Grift guardian after equipping the gear, first rift, Tall Man's Finger and a Uh, Ukt, hmm, a Serpent dropped (offhand).Now I don't know how rare the offhand is but guessing it's not. 4 rifts later another dropped with a modest damage increase.
So, as I've heard others say before me, guess I'm not gonna get anything for awhile...
...although, just yesterday I groused about still not having a TMFinger, and Bam!!! Maybe there is something to this...
