    Quote from lalaurentide

    I want to find set and legendary every couple hours, because they don't always roll as BiS and I might need more than one drop to eventually get to near BiS and because I have 5 characters I want to gear to the top end of the gear curve without AH. That is why. Now if you like sitting on a chair for hours on end with no please, like you were sitting on the toilet seat going for a #2, that's you, but not everyone is anal like you.

    me2 as it stands now ive spent $300 real money since release and i dont even have BiS on most slots on my OP barbarian. ive played hundreds and hundreds of hours playing and sat countless hours staring at a shit auction house GUI and im only really geared on 1 of my 4 60's. btw im never going to roll a monk. what a douche bag class.

    while i agree with your economics outlook, and was trolling u on ur exaggeration, casual players are going to be much happier with x2 loot. what good is a dollar bill being printed if it looses its value because no one is using it? though your context on difficulty addresses some of these issues in regards to casual players.

    the problem of changing the way items are rolled (ei better combination's which im guessing u meant) is that there is already a huge system in place where ppl have money tied into there gear. if u revamp it to much ppl will get pissed and leave, and blizzard doesnt want to piss the real money spenders off. when IAS was nerfed did u see the forums? so given the situation blizzard has to add incentive and create and inflation market where the big spenders keep coming back but dont leave due to frustration.

    I'm kinda disappointed in the fact that they changed all drops to 63 affix instead of doing what your saying and make better combination's. due to the fact i'll have to id 5000 rares instead of 1000 rares to find that godly piece. as it is now most the times i dont even pick up ilvl63's unless its a slayers. its almost more efficient at top tier play to just leave everything on the ground and just pick up legendary's. because lets face it, who wants to ID 1000 just for one good one (even with faster id times on ptr). who knows though maybe mp10 mf being so high those you could get 20 good items out of 1000

    MP10 addresses this very slightly just because it takes so long to kill anything. but for efficiency reasons ppl will still play at a lower difficulty just because of optimal time to find legendary's will usurp the time spent in mp10

    for how many hours ive put in i should have found or traded for my full immortals set with 125k dps unbuffed... but instead ive payed 300$ on the RMAH to help get it. time for rewards is whats needed. for the casual player who plays a little bit every couple days to not find any legendary's for weeks is killing this game. because they dont stick around.

    all of those set/lege items u'll find post 1.0.5 wil be worthless garbage due to deflation :) have fun!

    thats what you asked for: "better" items.

    everyone cant find good/best items, but if they do (1.0.5 legendary droprate buff) there will be a new equilibrium. those good/best items will be common and garbage, game will just be easier. now you'll try to find the highest rolls instead.

    those green items you would shit yourself to see if they dropped today? they will be as common as rare/yellow items are today. nothing special. this is why i hate this droprate buff. people who wants droprate buff only wants the game to be easier, simple as that. because items' qualities are negatively correlated to the games difficulty.

    there wont be a "HOLY SHIT" moment when u find green/brown items post 1.0.5... but as for the moment thats the case.

    items that are literally rare and uncommon are worth more, they get more hype. eliminating this by increasing droprate automatically decreases the worth and the hype.

    i'd rather almost never find legendaries/set items, but letting them keep their status as "HOLY SHIT"-items with great rolls and hype and coolness than having them dropped everyday and eliminating the status/hype of the items.

    i disagree whole heatedly. sure the values will go down, but top tiered items are still gunna be worth a ton. i get legendary and set items quite often in 1.04 but 9/10 are just complete garbage... so even now when a legendary drops im not excited until i check its ilvl and ID it. you say as common as rares? so 1 legendary x2 drop rate makes what? 2 legendary's a day? wow yea thats as common....

    yay to more loots! as it is right now most ppl quit because it takes to long to find anything useful. making ppl use the RMAH. thats not fun for anyone.

    posted a message on Legendary items to roll affixes based on Monster Level
    even in reallllly reallly good gear its take forever to kill the elites, im guessing it will never outweigh choosing a lower difficulty with faster killing. who knows though, with trifector 63 affix ammy's and rings, maybe we"ll be able to get enough dps for efficient mp10 farming

    Quote from Fizbini

    the only difference between MP1 and MP10 is the MF, the chances you will have more affixes. think about it this way.... u play MP1 and get a 1handed weapon woth 300 dps 800 lifeonthit 3lifesteal socket, at mp10 it would have probably had 2 more affixs, and maybe a damage modifier... so something that was complete crap before is actually now godly.. the biggest problem with MP10 is the hp's the monsters have is soooo much higher it take forever to kill them making it non efficient unless your at 300k dps.

    i can farm MP10 at 150k dps on my barb buffed... but it takes to long to kill anything. mp6 is where its at, can itemize more offensive

    lol what?

    While it's true, that it's more likely to roll 6 affix rares with more MF, you are COMPLETELY OVERSTATING the effect. Read the amazing MF thread in the theorycrafting section of this site to get a true idea of just how much of an effect MF has on creating more affix rares (it's not a large amount).

    i think maybe your underestimating MF
    how many times have u found a rare where it has 4 affix's but didnt have stamina, or didnt have all resistance, so it was crap. having even a slight chance of getting more affix compounds the chances of getting better items.

    especially weapons that dont roll a damage modifier.

    how many times have you said, "oh man that would have been a perfect item if it rolled AR"

    posted a message on Harder to sell items on RMAH now?
    general trend for RMAH is when patch hits prices go up and lots of stuff sells. monday-thursday its much harder to sell, friday and sunday its pretty good, saturdays are the best. keep in mind if u want to sell on weekdays u'll have to underbid quite substantially.

    posted a message on No Unique Drops ...
    my brother told me he seen a site where it crunched how many legendary per elites killed in regards to magic find... when you get high enough paragon level and have a lot of MF they drop 1-4 a day if ur farming fast and non stop.

    for someone who doesnt have much MF and doesnt kill a huge number of elites per hour i can see how this would be frustrating. the problem arises mainly due to the auction house... if blizzard gave everyone tons of drops they wouldnt make very much money. it sucks and i personally think its stupid. even with x2 to drops in 1.05 its pretty small chance for the average player.

    when i do alcaizer act 3 runs in under 10 minutes for 4 hours at 20+ elites each run on my uber geared barbarian and dont get a legendary im super pissed.

    and even when i do get 3 legendary items in one days 9/10 times it complete garbage. i got lucky when 1.04 released and got $350 off RMAH in the first 2 days. but ever since then its been almost complete crap... i have a whole tab in my bank filled with garbage farming too paragon 60sh

    posted a message on What class is your main?
    was a WD at 70k bufffed dps at release farming act3
    then a DH at 160k dps buffed running act3 siegebreaker runs
    then a BARB at 170k+ dps buffed, paragon 50+, alkaizer runs

    NOTHING clears as fast as a barbarian. its just face roll. just because 24/7 wrath and the movement.

    in the meentime for the last 3 days ive levels a wizard and am trying critical mass, but since its getting the nerfhammer dont think i'll spend to much gold on him.

    monster power favors BARBS and LOH and LIFESTEAL more then ever before, i can play MP10 on my barbarian, but ive been trying a few wizard specs... and nothing seems to be that great. not going to bother trying my DH because that would be just painful. and WD would be ok but it would just take WAY to long to kill shit as effectively as the barbarian. was thinking maybe getting a skorn with lifesteal for the WD and using acid rain and raining toads.. that might be close to as good as the barb?? whata u guys think. i have a stats SKORN but the life steal one might make it viable at MP10

    anyone else feel like the other calsses need better coeficients for life on hit to compete with barbarians... or they just need buffs all around.. its just not even a comparison

    posted a message on why i cant farm act 3?
    ummm IMO drop nerves of steel and tough as nails.
    grab animosity -- more rage generation
    grab weapon master -- more rage from mighty weapon

    use a mighty main hand weapon

    (i use a mace now because i have 5set immortals)

    ur dieing because of ur wrath is dropping.. u said jailer gives u problems? shouldnt ever get you
    u said molten gets you? with wrath up u move faster and u can get ahead of running molten elites instead of standing on a fire.

    another thing that can help is maving 24% movement speed
    your boots only have 9%
    and u dont have a 12% legendary

    buy a cheap lacuni prowler... even if u cant afford a all resist crit one just buy a low str one and u'll be fine.

    honestly ur way overkill with resistance
    buffed i only have 600 LOH and 700 resistance and i never die... though i dropped LOH and resistane because im over 110k unbuffed dps atm... so at that dps it doesnt matter with 6% life leach... before that i needed aprox 1500 LOH to feel comfy without dps or life steal.

    posted a message on PTR - Increased weapon damage?
    mf is capped at 300 + nv on live
    mf is capped at 300 + nv + pw on ptr
    not to mention 63 affixes on all drops so basically your chances of getting high end affixs has been increased substantially


    so even though it is lucky, its much much much more likely... derp derp
