Diablo® III

question bout travis answer

"We know that drop rates aren't exactly where we want them right now and it's very important to us to get as much feedback as possible during our beta. We are going to adjust the legendary drop rates via hotfix so that you guys have as much time as possible to test and give us feedback on how the changes feel, also more time for us to compile data and get RoS to be the best it can be."

Does this affect the ptr also or is it only to beta player and if it does, will it mean that when 2.0 hit live we will all have !@#$ drops till we buy ros??? Just asking because im really nervous bout the drop rate and i've been looking on these topics for quite some time now so if someone or even a blue could clarifie this for me i'd be happy to know.

I believe this will take effect in both PTR and Beta.

It has to be overall I don't see them coding 61+ players only to have the rate higher..

Remember In PTR/ROS mobs are your level..

Yes it affects both.

Also not sure if you saw but Travis posted a followup this afternoon saying they are going to double the current drop rates and also look into the bug that is allowing people to go too long with legendaries.

I too feel much better about ROS and drop rates now.

When drop rates for Legendary items are increased it will be for the beta and PTR. We're looking forward to having you all test it out, and letting us know what you think!

Is the hot-fix for this drop-rate increase still due for today or will it be for next week?

The problem is to focus on the fun when it should be secondary Drop, and be the game itself that fun.

chill people

it's coming soon, I'm pretty certain. The devs don't come out of hiding unless they have changes planned. It will be tonight or tomorrow before this weekend. They want us to test the "stuff" it must be the weekend.

What's great is taking a giant list of problems and then addressing only one like it will fix everything. If we could get info on all the other giant flaws in the game that were so well articulated in the "TheTias" /droth comments that would be great.

Well Loot and getting loot ala drop rates are the main reason to play a game like D3. I'm sure they are working on everything.. but if they were to make a post about them all that would probably not be efficient.

But yes I understand the other problems you refer to BUT. ... if i'm having fun killing and looting when the game goes live on the 25th.. I can wait a few more months for a few big patches ya know?

I for one cannot wait to test these hotfixes!

I loved the F&F so much and I can't wait to restore that feeling of the next greatest drop being right there around the corner.

PTR and Beta run in the same testing environment, so any hotfixes applied towards the beta will also be applied towards the PTR.

Of course...buggy loot/crafting on PTR is not important.
Everyone just wants more legs per hour... -.-

So is Traving going to answer more of the relevant questions that has been raised in the "MVP thread"? Or the "Gosu thread"?
Or was he just stepping in to stop the fire? :)

Droprates matter, but they are one of many issues that is lacking answers, or at least descriptions on what the goals and visions of the developers are.
