I have not seen anything about the use of Death's Breath in 2.1 or future patches and was hoping to come up with a solution for this near useless item. So far the best thing I could come up with is the possibility of using 'x' amount of Death' Breaths at the Mystic to undo any enchantments done to an item. This would be useful for people who may have enchanted a certain stat but now want that stat back to change another one. Basically you would allow yourself to reuse an item for possibly another class or build. The price of course would not be reset so people could not abuse the mechanic.
I would like to hear what you guys think about this idea and whether people out there have even better ideas on what to do with Death's Breaths!!
I made a post 3 months back or so - I feel the same way about DB's - there are things about them that I really think make them a useful "currency" to be spent in the game: You must find them yourself, they can only be acquired by playing the game, being in the zone and actually (for the most part) participating. Sure there are a few ways you could limp along behind someone clearing for you on higher T levels but by and large getting significant numbers of them is a simple as playing.
I've probably got almost 2500 stored of them in my play time - I'm sure there are many people who have multiples of that number. Seems to me they should be used for something.
I doubt blizzard will give us a way to go back on our enchanting choices. However they could say, add a function to turn in 100+ DBs for 1 soul... would let us do more crafting / enchanting and let us clear up the DBs that are stacking up.
I think you have some really good ideas on here Tombo. Hopefully the devs can come up with something useful for not only the Death's Breaths but the Forgotten Souls as well. Both materials are very underwhelming, especially after you've played the game for more than a couple hours at max level. I guess they'll be useful for seasons in 2.1 since you need these in large amounts very early. On live however, there might need to be some changes.
