Diablo® III

Just identified 2 stash tabs of legendaries

Warning: I will rage in this post. So if you're a blizzard fanboy just leave and farm a bit.

I collected over 70 legendaries over the last 3 days and decided to identify them all at once.

About 35 of them were INSTANTLY salvaged, f.e. "legendaries" like:

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/the-burning-axe-of-sankis

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/wizardspike

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/gladiator-gauntlets

Due to the most amateurish and horribly design an item-based game has ever seen, these and MANY other "legendaries" don't even have the chance to be good. It would not have mattered leaving this junk on the ground from the beginning.

The other half of them I considered to sell. I checked their prices on the AH and only 10 of them are worth selling over 500k, the rest also will be brimstoned.

None of them is worth more than 10M.

Estimating their worth all together I made about 35M at best out of 70+ legendaries.
For some this may seem much, but let me show you why this is a complete joke:

1) Upgrades are in the range of 200M+ per piece for me.

That means in order to upgrade one piece I would have to farm over 18 days.

2) I find about 2 legendaries per hour. Let's say the average worth of one legendary is 500k, thus I make 1M per hour. Currently 1M is sold for 35 cents as far as I know...yeah, totally worth playing the game then.
--> I could just work for McDonalds and make more progress in this game rather than through playing it. That is IF I were to use the garbage system of the RMAH, which I never will.

3) I'm not even mentioning all the rares I found over this time. None of them was worth anything. 3 days, not one good rare item dropped.

Good job Blizzard. At least like this your pockets get filled since good items are next to impossible to find and rich people simply use the easy way.

It is either this profit-orientated calculation or simply amateurish stupidity of designing a game, but in either case I can't understand why one would decide to implement an item-system like this.

Fix your damn game and re-work your item system. Make item-searching fun and REWARDING, go back to the roots your game should have. Your items are HORRIBLE at the moment, it shouldn't stay this way.

If I could get 70 legendaries in that time frame..I'd be ins some bizarre parallel world where Jay Wilson played a Witch Doctor.

What a crybaby, I would be happy to make 35m off a bunch of legendaries.
At some point you've reached the end of your gear.

Good grief, how is it possible to farm that many legendaries in 2 days? Are you on a catheter slamming monster energy drinks playing non-stop? That, or botting.

So your point is..you want good drops, so you can upgrade your gear...and be basically done in a matter of days? You do realize you spent 60 bux on this GAME right. play it...enjoy it. DO NOT RUSH TO THE FINISH LINE...or else when you get there i can guarantee you will say.."Now what?" look at my profile..(first, i stripped my barb and i spent 1.5 mil on the gear he has...i KNOW i will find upgrades at some point) I am still learning, finding good stuff and bad stuff, playing the market, finding deals, posting deals. Why rush to finish a game? that would be a massive waste of money.

Yeah. Rushing to the 'end of the gear grind' is kind of redundant in this solo single player game. It's a Dungeon CRAWL. Why run?

ppl need to realize that the iteminzation in d3 is plain bad


At least someone with brains.

Take a look at all legendary items in D3. As I said, the majority of them CAN'T be good, since their stats are bad by default.

And to the guys thinking 35M is much: It isn't.
Also, I said "at best", probably will be less in this messed up economy.

No bot will ever be able to compete with a whirlwind barb on steroids controlled by a player with too much coffee.

Honestly even though Torchlight 2 was really cartoonish I kind of preferred it to this. I found upgrades constantly. It was really cool finding all the little easter eggs in game and secret passages and solving little puzzles to get to hidden chests etc lol. I just hate how runic is so pro-modding with their games. Makes me not even want to play public games, and having played with friends before its much more fun with a group.

Lol I thought you were going to say something like you were still in high school lol. I would've hated to have to tell you mcdonalds only accepts applications from college graduates these days. rofl. no but really, from what I've heard, their standards are a little too high for flipping burgers.

No clue how that is in the US, here in Europe everyone can work there...literally.

Yeah, I gotta give it a try now. Have the game since release but never took the time to check it out. Also, Path of Exile will be pretty damn insane, too...

But that's not my point.

I don't want to play other games...I wanted to play D3 for a long time, as many of us do or did. The problem is simply that the game is in no way rewarding for players who play legitimately. RMAH users will always be better than legit players, even playing the AH for profit can't compete with a credit card.

Better items would, though, since you really should be able to find good items by simply playing the game.
