- legendaries do drop, and most of the time, after beating a relevant (and usually, hard to beat) mission boss. That feels rewarding, it feels like: "after 5 mins of fighting this bad ass giant, I get some reward! yay!", and not.. "oh.. look, more blue items on the ground after dying 17 times in a row versus inferno belial.. yay..".
- I enjoy using my weapon!, I like how I can swing my mace, without any modification or special effect, just me and my weapon. I like that.
- I like the pet, besides the fact that he can shop and buy stuff, it is really useful, it actually kill stuff!, I can even train it with spells and it becomes even more useful. I like to feed it summon spells, and sometimes Im with like 4 minions, the pet and 3 more spawns. I do enjoy that kind of IA customization.
In terms of balance/items/etc there are some things that should be balanced/removed, but generally is fine, and I find enjoyable to pick a spell that I like, and upgrade it to the max, I hope there is respec later :P.
So far, those 3 things I think are better in TL2 than in D3. IMO.
