i think the default radius is just nuts .. way too low .. i walk over piles of gold and still miss it.. its pretty annoying.. and no thanks to getting that stat on gear

and what is up with barb belts im now getting like a zillion of those per act3 run jeez

I play with just 1 gear with 5 yard pickup radius and i hardly miss anything. You just dont want to invest in gear that has pickup on it do you?

well if its an upgrade and has it then i dont mind.. but i wont go out of my way to get a piece of gear with that stat.. which usually means a downgrade

I would not call it a downgrade. Every second i save running around gold drops is a second i use to kill more stuff for more gold drops. The faster you do a run the better right? You need just 1 piece so its not that hard to find someplace to put it.

I miss having pick up radius. I remember when I first started the DH and equipped whatever I found I ended up with 21yards of bonus. That was pretty fun being able to pick up whole room fills of stuff at the same time.

it's worth sacrificing 1-3k dps for pick up radius imo.

I agree.
The default pickup radius should be 2-3.

Usuallly its really hard to sacrifice all your gear, even for just a single item with pickup radius.
You are compromised because you have to have it because the default should literally walk over the gold, so tedious and strainful to the hands.

Yea, I had to sacrify some damage and/or vitality for pickup radius. My monk and DH have nice vitality+ar+pickup belts, just without any dex.

Why sacrifice, rares can go up to 6 random rolls. I do admit decent stated equip that also have pickup radius are way more expensive.

There is a reason why there is a pickup radius premium, its da best.

really 0 pickup rad = same as d2 d1, you can just click the gold to pick it up.

that said, just get pickup rad on some gear you never plan to upgrade for a long time

eg: in my case , a wh belt. in other people's cases a lacuni prowler with crit and pickup rad.

It wouldn't be a problem, at least for most of players, if there isn't a bug that floating gold only be looted with pickup radius.

but in d2 gold doesn't even compare to the value of D3's gold ...

i dont bother.. if the pile of gold is not along my path i dont stray to pick it up.. it hurts seeing 2200+ piles just sit there tho..hurts more when i walk over them and still dont pick it up

im trying to keep my clears quick as possible.. so running around in a small circle for 3 seconds trying to pickup that one pile adds up

PS. i love fleeing shrine !! omgg
