Diablo® III

farming legendary crafting materials

is a huge waste of time..

i persevered farming born's key for two hours by spwning
Lucious the Depraved in torment V..

in two hours ive only seen him 5x..
out of the 5x i killed him a total of zreo leg mats dropped..

almost 2 hours of creating games just spawning a specific elite!!!
those ~2 hours couldve been spent killing mobs, gaining xp, gold, gems..


at least make the leg mats drop in a specific area, not a rare spawn..
so that while youre farming for it, you are also gaining xp ,gold,gems and whatnot..

i have no qualms about the drop rate but

please enlighten us the idea of why you want us to waste time creating games
for hours on end just to have that one spawn in the game??
this type of gameplay isnt appealing and very stupid..

also, why are some leg mats more accesible to farming than others??
ex. maghda's soul, demon skin..

please respond to this issue..

Agreed, remove the legendary components. It's hard enough to roll good stats on an item as it is. Throw in the time you waste farming for one lousy mat, it's just not worth crafting something that has a high probability of being junk.

fail game design..

Completely agree! I found about 5-6 nice plans.... no mats.... how ridiculous is that

Farmed for a few hours for mats for a legend belt... not 1 mat dropped - but a new upgrade set belt did... lol now i can stop farming the belt mat but still silly that time was wasted doing this.

I agree that there seems to be too much randomness to get the perfect legendary item, but legendary and set items are end-game, and making it easier to get might trivialize the loot game.

drop rates is not even the issue at hand, at least for me...

the issue is the way they are farmed..
you waste time creating games for the rare spawn to spawn instead of killing stuff..
that means you missed out on hrs worth of xp, gold, gems and y,b,w mats..

Making specific mats drop from all mobs might be a better idea.

Maybe they should make all mates to drop on bosses.... this way there will always be one there for you to fight when you create a new game...

Just make 1 boss drop a variety of different mats...

Smart drops should know that if you have a plan, you need the mats and give them a chance to drop..
