Why remove Griswold's Edge?

Posts: 8
I mean it was in the beta for awhile, got removed which is understandable since they didn't want legendaries to show up in beta, but why scrap it completely? It already had a unique model, decent stats for its level range but nothing so great as to make people constantly reload for 30-40 minutes just to get it since by that time you'd be past the SK and finding much better stuff. Having it drop specifically from the anvil of fury instead of a random chance from monsters was also cool and set it apart from other items, it was more of an easter egg than a serious item, which was fine.

It seems they made more items than they think they should have. The game was just too content rich, so they just lopped off a bunch and figured they can throw it in the expansion pack. Classy.

I think it is strange to get rid of a traditional item like that as well. Maybe it will show up in a patch or expansion.

Maybe it hasn't been removed? Are you sure that they listed all of the items in the lists online?

I'm sure it will return in a patch or expansion. While level 60 Legendaries will be the main objective after "Perfect Rares" I'm sure they'll still throw in a few low level ones over the next 6 years.

lol if it weren't for the items and finding them you would beat the game and be done with it.

The sword is still in game, however it has been "reduced" from legendary to a magic item instead.

Yeah, I was gonna say, I bought Griswold's Edge from a vendor in Tristram, and got rid of it again pretty quickly as I found better.

I also found it lying on an anvil, in Griswold's old shop... but it's worthless...
