I guess I have a problem with this line of thinking, really. I don't really want the game to make those determinations for me. If I think the funnest thing to do is run around with magic find gear and swapping equipment to click on weapon racks, why can't I do that?
Now, I don't actually feel this way, but every time there is a change made that removes something from the game, I think that is bad. I think from a player's perspective it feels like we've all been dumped in a giant room full of toys, and every time we go pick up or play with the wrong one, it disappears.
Right now it feels like the *only* thing left to do with any kind of reward is roam around looking for elite packs and killing them. I don't have a problem with that idea, Nephalem's Valor or any of the logic behind it. In fact I was excited to hear about these new concepts coming in D3. More ways to find loot! Fun! What disappointed me though, is that is starting to feel like the only thing to do in Diablo 3.
