However, the unforgivable sin of this patch is to crush the gold and magic find of objects and chests. Basically, I have 75% Gold and 75% Magic Find. After the patch, I earned about 5000 gold walking through the first half of Act 4 Nightmare... It is still dangerous enough to easily die; however, there is no profit to be had questing and you will have hell buying items in the Auction House now due to their expense.
Blizzard, please make hardcore challenging and profitable. Let these current setting hold for softcore and return hardcore to before patch 1.03.
