My Dear Ice Climbers...

When I first set my eyes on you in March 2013, I knew you were the one. Number one, for that matter. You were the only pair of boots in the entire world not named Zunimassa's Trail that was ranked so high on the DiabloProgress item charts that nothing else mattered.

You were so close to perfection. Perfect movement speed. Perfect vitality. Perfect life bonus. 7 intelligence away from perfect. 2 points of AR from perfect. Yes, your armor roll was a little further off (85 points from max), but at least it was better than say... thorns. And I didn't care about your cold resistance. I was a full-time Archon wizard running 2 million EHP, I didn't care about how much Frozen blobs hurt.

Anyway, you're so perfect and our time together outlasted all my other pieces of gear. Though toward the latter months you sat in my stash, only seeing action when I switched to a SNS build (because your EHPness is amazing), I still treated you with the utmost respect.

However, as we transition to Loot 2.0 and Diablo III's first expansion, Reaper of Souls, it pains me to say that our time together has ended. While our separation cost me monetarily, the memories from the past 11+ months we share are priceless. I pray the next pair of feet you envelop will smell just as nice as mine.

Goodbye, my dear, sweet Ice Climbers.

I was afraid I was going to see "2,000,000,000" but that's not too shabby at all.

Ha I was going to say how good they would be in ROS Jaetch - then I saw the $211. That wins!

Though reroll that Armour into 15% Arcane Torrent damage or Meteor damage, socket a 280 Int gem and those boots would only be replaced by a good Legendary in ROS. Or you could reroll the main INT stat a lot higher too.

Yeah, I considered that. But you know why I chose to give up these boots?

Well, money's nice... but also Loot 2.0's Ice Climbers are just infinitely better because they grant you total immunity to Frozen and Jailer effects (also removes all "slow" effects, including the aftereffects of Knockback, and webs from spider mobs).

Yea I 100% agree with you there, I've seen them on the PTR and to be honest that's the only affix that pisses me off at all in game. I obviously didn't look at it enough though, I didn't realise it effected jailer effects and web slows - even better.

The thing is, when are you going to finally get a pair to drop?

Your "old" IC's are going to have 573Int, 100Vit, 12MS, 78Ar, 12%Life(scales for ROS) and Armor to reroll to %skill. So until a "good" new legendary dropped they would actually last a bloody long time in ROS, or RNG could replace them day 1.

I can see why someone bought them, though I'd prefer the $211 in my pocket as I know they WILL get replaced at some time. Hell I'd prefer $20 in my pocket over any gear to carry over into ROS.

They dropped once for me in the F&F Beta and they dropped again in the last Beta build (before I reimported my characters again). I will get them again! Even if I have to spend thousands of Blood Shards gambling boots!

Sorry mate but I think you used up all you IC luck already. Though now I've seen the Torment only list which means they can be definitely be gained from Gambling, I'll be doing the same.

The boots are just that good. Its a shame there's so many amulets as I want to "gamble" a Ess of Johan ASAP too.

Off topic - Since no ROS forum access.

"For players who are "rared" out (no rare item can substantially improve their characters) and are simply playing for the sake of getting that next random legendary item, I really think they need something else to hunt for."

You hit the nail on the head here Jaetch regarding your thread:

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/11582248209

I don't care what they implement but surely they realise after a few weeks into ROS when everyone has base legendry's in all slots that the only gear that is useful is a better legendary. So once ever 1-2hrs we can get a possible upgrade, more than likely a Forgotten Souls though.

What Blizzard seems to be missing, and a lot of players, is a RPG is supposed to be a LOOT hunt game. Blizzard needs to implement something, runewords and charms would cover this slot as you suggest, to keep us on the hunt. This way we have a variety of items that will drop and you won't have to rely on the 1-2hr drop for the adrenaline rush - the reason we play to start with.

With the implementation of new items it will feel like your finding things all the time and not log off after the next legendary drop as you know you won't see one for another hour or two.

I liked MissCheetah's suggestion regarding the current rare crafting materials. I'm really surprised your thread hasn't seen more comments, disappointing actually.

Usually you won't see many responses when:

1. The suggestion/opinion is sound/agreeable
2. When there's nothing to complain about in the OP

:P

Gah! As you can see, I'm a RMAH n00b. I sold a few leveling items for 5$ a piece, and my biggest luck was buying a 6 crit STR Mempo for 100Mil and reselling for 125USD. (didnt sell at 200 nor 150) Pretty much my only meaningful flip ever, Im not too great at predicting real value of stuff.

Who the crap is paying $250 to rent boots for 1.5 months? That's cray. The new ones are just so great.
