I actually recently posted concerning pickup radii here, and I highly recommend checking out that particular thread.

In short: we like that there are different itemization choices, and that players often have to weigh their options when comparing gear in order to be the most efficient, to have the greatest DPS, to find the best loot, etc. We do appreciate the feedback, though! (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Will Invulnerable Minions Ever Return?
We don’t have any current plans for the Invulnerable affix to rear its head and return. We felt it was a frustrating affix for many players, and that it was out of line with the other affixes, which is why we removed it. In a similar way, we feel that the Reflects Damage affix isn’t quite where we want it to be, which is why we’re looking intomaking some adjustments to the mechanics of how it works, as well as fixing a related bug.

Best Songs While Playing Diablo?
It depends greatly on my mood and what hero I'm playing, but lately I find myself playing a lot of Nightwish, Amethystium, E.S. Posthumus, Two Steps from Hell, movie soundtracks (such as the work of James Newton-Howard, Hans Zimmer, and Danny Elfman), and Imagine Dragons when I play Diablo III. :) (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
