So I spent 10 hours putting together the machine. But I realized the new rings/ammys roll so much better than this ring. So what is the incentive to run this?

just keep doing farm runs and at the end of your run, stop by the warden.

when you're satisfied with the amount of keys you have, cash out by finding a mp10 group that's willing to carry you.

the ring is actually better than 99% of the rings out there....

Incentive? killing ubers is a quest, its something you do for fun, not for drops... just like every other thing you kill in this game, drops are bonuses, so you spent 10 hours and beat the ubers.. now you can start up final fantasy and spend 10 hours and kill a big boss in that too...

drops shouldnt be the only thing that makes you happy in this game, and if you cant play it for a week with no drops then stop playing because this isnt a job, its a game, have fun...

If you get IAS, CD, CC and AR, would you say it's a waste then? That is a ton of dps. Easily BiS.

Also, 10 hours is a very long time for a single machine.

It's just some cheese to keep players playing.

If you already have great rings, the hellfire ring is completely useless.

BUT...

The KeyWardens drops are really great, even better than bosses. So if it's on your farming route, why not gather the keys and go for it.

Just for fun.


Ubers have nice drops too. Someone I know got 2 legends and a set item from an uber battle.

You guys must have some good gear (to farm keys on higher MP levels quickly) or have some good luck.

I've done more than 25 MP5 runs now and have only seen 3 keys in total lol.

LoL 10 hours for one IM. . . you're doing something wrong.

And it's uber Fun fighting the Uber Bosses, we don't even care about the Hellfire rings that much, plus we're getting tons of Leg/Set items farming the keys. . . notice the word "we" =)

I got mine the day after the patch came out. Ran each warden maybe 3 times. Just got lucky on my drops, and I'm just about to the point where I can make another. You win some, you lose some.

+1 to OP, I could care less about this ring. If I can't sell it, I don't want it.

Hate to say it, the ring is going to be very lackluster 95% of the time. A trifecta ring would be the only hellfire ring I'd consider using as I look to upgrade my rings. In D2, the charm is worth it even when it rolled low end for your class. The hellfire ring just doesn't have the same awesome factor as D2 did, in D2, it was a charm, it provided something unique that no other charm could provide. A trifecta hellfire ring is the best ring in the game, however, you could be chasing it for a day or a year depending on rng.

I'm not complaining, just saying, I was disappointed it was a ring rather than something you carried around in your inventory. Had it been like a charm, I would have been way more excited.

any ring can roll that

the only thing special about hellfire is the 35% exp bonus, not worth the trouble. How many rings with the right combination of affixes have you found? How many rings have you found? In the time you make 1 hellfire ring you will have found dozens maybe hundreds of rare rings
