With soulbound, at least you don't have to worry about d2jsp.
lol "worry"? What about d2jsp "worries" you?
Even though I'm not a competative person and generally keeps to myself by playing hardcore selffound. I can't help but get ticked of by streamers bragging about (third party site bought) gear that he claims is self-found. Even though I don't participate in the run down softcore culture it still affects me. I'd rather see everybody find the best items themselves. That's just how I am and feel about the game.
All legendary and set items being soul-bound is a terrible idea. Don't kill trading. Killing the auction house is good, killing the social aspect of trading is bad.
You could still trade how many white/blue/yellows you want. They just wanted to make sure that the best items can only be aquired by finding them yourself. Also items found in a game can be traded with the people participating for a short period of time.
They clearly pointed often a friend just joins the game drops 20 items and then leaves. GG. That's very social of him/her.
Supporting non-soulbound with that argument is not enough. Sorry.
Many people just use that excuse to cover up that they secretly want to flip items, buy them with real money or third party traders to because are money and powergreedy.
Thanks for the interview, curse! That certainly cleared some things up.
I don't like nephalem orbs coming to PC though. It's basically just flat out damage buffs in three different forms. No mechanic changes at all. They are plane, dull and I do not like the design of yellow holy lightning at all :/
