why charms exactly?
Charms add diversity to the item hunt by implimenting a new type of item to search for that empowers your character....you know, that thing that makes diablo games fun. What the game needs in an expansion is a way to make finding stuff fun again.
I would like to see the expansion start with the main character waking up and realizing D3 was a bad dream, and then play Diablo 2.5. Almost every change Blizzard has made from the D2 model has been inferior and met with /rage (except health globes). In D2, every single item that dropped had a chance to be useful to you (except arrows and bolts-another good change to d3). D3 needs to make item finding fun. Period.

Aug 17, 2012two constructive critical points on this one:Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
1. regarding your first point, the reason is because of the auction house, because drop rates of good items had to be reduced so high end items weren't worth total crap. If drop rates scaled to D2's fun drop rates, uniques (assuming they were good) would sell for 20k gold. Also, the reason why you have to play so long for optimal mfing has to do with the AH as well (RMAH this time), because its easy to write a script bot and do a short, simple task over and over. They didn't care in D2, but with the RMAH, they have to care, so there is no way you can have a short fun mf run game. What, festering woods? Good idea, oh wait, game creation limit, darn. Let me preempt the troll by not taking the bridge here, I'll argue that while yes, botting made d2 bad, its better than having the fun of being able to find good items being taken away by having minuscule drop rates. At least in D2 you could choose to play without trading with botters, but in D3 the low drop rate forces you to not have as much fun.
2. Its funny that the OP states that HC is a waste of time, because I feel that SC is a waste of time (personal preference). I played about 15 minutes of SC in D3, and about 400 hours of HC (on my 5th lvl 60 monk, heh). Besides the horrible lag and rubberbanding deaths, its infinitely more fun than SC for me.
