No, it’s not a joke and no, I’m not trolling – this is the sword I’ve looted just moments ago on inferno whimsyshire.
Where do I start? Should I mention that, with the recent 1.03 patch nerfing the chest drops (the mf no longer taken into account) whimsyshire (which is FULL of chests = clouds) got nerfed into the ground? Should I also point out that nerfing the drops on elite (purple) mobs is a horrible idea, as it effectively reduces your unique one-of-a-kind monster you can’t wait to kill to an opponent which won’t even give you an NV stack and has the drop equivalent to a nerfed chest? Should I hint at the fact that the legendaries are (for the most part) a joke (even the screenshot provided is a perfect example – I’d never use that sword on lvl 30)?
Nah, let’s get to the problem at hand – dropping normal (albeit legendary) items on the hardest possible difficulty in the hardest possible place on that difficulty. Here’s a simple suggestion:
Normal difficulty = normal items
Nightmare difficulty = nightmare items
Hell difficulty = hell items
Inferno difficulty = inferno items
Doesn’t sound that hard, now does it?
Also, could we, for the love of god, change the chests in whimsyshire back to their original function (hint: to drop even more items)? Somehow dropping 400 gold (with 5 NV stacks) from a chest in the hardest place in this game doesn’t sound right…
