Diablo® III

Do you all kill normal monsters?

1.) When you farm? Do you clear everything or run and find champions?
When I can. Kill everything.

2.) Do you open up normal chests, bodies, barrels, ect?
Only when I feel like it.

3.) Do you pick up all gold or leave smaller stack sizes to rot?
Rot.

Act 1, I ignore normal mobs and find champions.
Act 2+, I kill everything. champs are hard enough by themselves, I don't want to have trash mobs hitting me during the fight. Only exception to that I guess is when I play my WD.
My summons can tank everything while I kill the trash mobs, so it isn't a big problem. I ignore a bit more on that class.

2.) Do you open up normal chests, bodies, barrels, ect?

I open chest, nothing else. Unless there's an animation ( leah blasting belial's door, stuff like that ) in which case I break stuff/loot whatever there is to loot.

Depends how lazy/tired I am, and how far the stack is.
I usually try to get all 100+ gold stacks.
But if they're too far away, I let them rot. I'm pretty sure it's not very profitable ( gold/hour ) to run after low gold stacks, and most of all, it's boring.

I pick all blues tho. I never really counted if it was profitable, but well, it's really fast. tele, sell every blue, tele back. Takes 20 seconds to make maybe 10k gold, it's a good rate.

It is easier for me to believe that superman exist and Santa Claus lives in north pole, before anything you just post about the game.


what?

why would they lie about their gaming habits?

You're a tool.

1. As a rule, I kill everything, full Act map clear, starting the end boss quest then clearing until not a living soul is left.

However, with Furious Charge being so broken right now, I won't be able to fit a full clear in, I will inevitably be stuck, invulnerable, can't loot. Need to restart game and loose my stacks. For this reason I now cherry pick the cream from the map, it's not a way I like to play but it is the best of two evils and makes the game less frustrating.

2. I used to open everything, but when the nerfs hit it became pretty pointless. I do however wear fire walkers now which pop bone piles etc for me, just how empty they are is quite amusing.

3. As Blizzard in their wisdom decided to unify gold and globe pick-up in one stat, I have no radius. This is simply because globe pick-up is detrimental to me, I don't want to be soaking up globes when I don't need them. This means that many a good find is ruined because of this stupid stat. It also means that I need to run over gold piles sometimes more than once, for that reason, I pretty much ignore gold and pick up only what I happen to by chance.
I find it unbelievable that rather than realize pairing such a detrimental stat as globe radius with a beneficial is bad, they repeat it again with the new 1.0.5 shrines.

I kill everything I find while I am out hunting. I like to kill stuff. A lot.

2.) Do you open up normal chests, bodies, barrels, ect?


I smash anything and everything that can be smashed but only open normal containers if they are right in front of me.

3.) Do you pick up all gold or leave smaller stack sizes to rot?


Gold will only get me to back track if it is a shiny enough pile, but in general I try to vacuum everything. Sanctuary has enough problems of its own and doesn’t need my litter after all.


This is the cheesiest reply I have ever seen on a Diablo forum. Almost makes me question whether if Blizzard employees actually play their own game.

1. I kill everything!
I have it in my head that; that 1 mob that I miss will have some uber loot on in and I missed it lol.
Just on this, all the Legendary & Set items that I have found have come from normal mobs. Have not got a single one from a Rare or Champ pack.

2. Pretty much smash/open everything as well.
For the same reason as above, that 1 that I miss is going to have something good in it. I just know it :)

3. I pick up all gold & all blues & above.
If I had more space so I didn't need to go back to town as much. I wouldn't leave a thing on the ground.

At least we all agree that gold is trash.

1) smash every crap that stands in my way as normal creeps tend to drop legendaries more than the elites weirdly
2) only chests
3) i don't, cause good items can give way more gold compared to the small stacks dropped. I focus fast kill, fast moving and clearing fast, turning back and circling back to pick up small bits of gold is not an option

Additional 4) do i pick up blues and all rares?

No i don't. I only focus level 61+ items(rare only) pickup in my run as i dont like making trip back to sell and come back for fight, waste of precious minutes farming

Only big stacks.

Yes I kill, open, loot, break and pick up EVERYTHING on my runs. Usually why I run solo when I farm, because other people just skip to elite and only pick up higher lvl rares.

I kill everything except event monsters since they don't give paragon exp.

2.) Do you open up normal chests, bodies, barrels, ect?

I do because they might drop gold. [or a good item] ^^

3.) Do you pick up all gold or leave smaller stack sizes to rot?

I pick up everything. Every bit of gold counts.

Cheers!

I usually clear everything. I'd love a mode where you could have LOTS more normal mobs but no champions, just the occasional named purple. Sort of a "zergling horde" mode. :)

2.) Do you open up normal chests, bodies, barrels, ect?

Of course! I also love destructibles, it's fun watching chain electrocute rip through a room full of barrels and statues and stuff.

3.) Do you pick up all gold or leave smaller stack sizes to rot?

Anything bigger than a single digit gets hoovered up. :)

I kill every single monster in the map, except for that single fallen who ran away the opposite direction.

I also break everything that I can to pick up gold and stuff.

I've gotten most of my legendaries and sets from white mobs.
