As a few players have pointed out in this thread, there are quite a range of appealing affixes that items can have. By choosing items that increase your pickup radius, you are making a decision that the value of that stat matters to you, and that you’re willing to trade other stats in order to have it. Having these sorts of compelling choices helps offer different itemization choices, and we like that players often have to weigh their options when comparing gear in order to be the most efficient, to have the greatest DPS, to find the best loot, etc.
We also like knowing when you feel that improvements can be made, though, so thank you for the feedback (seriously). We'll make sure it gets passed along to our developers.
If there is such a plethora out there; make it searchable on the AH.
I often find myself considering some less used affix, only to remember I can't filter on them anyways. end result; I don't find them.
So, if you want people to use AH to keep it viable, make it workable.
As for the pickup radius; make it a flat stat or something; clearly currently it's not working as it should and AH doesn't offer me any option to find something to fix it.
