Diablo® III

Gold pick up radius should be revised.

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.

Once again, you can find PUR on legendaries, but you guys don't want to pay for it...

If this stat is secondary as you say, why in the world do you even bother talking about it?

The fact that you guys QQ about PUR show it's importance. I have 2 friends, we have around 600h played.

- The one that stacked PUR from the beginning has over 150M gold picked up.

- I'm close to 80m as i stacked this stat only 3 months ago.

- My last friend still has to reach 40m picked up and he's like you, not stacking any PUR "i don't want to trade some DPS or affixes for that useless stat !"

useless, yeah...

Its not that big a deal.. one item with like 6-7 yards on it is enough to make looting easy enough. Any more then that and you pick up health orbs before you mean to.

Giving people a yard or 2 as a freebee wouldn't be bad, but if you bake it into paragon levels, you'll always pick up every orb that drops and wouldn't be able to save them for when you need em.

hey if I wanted to speed farm could I get a talent that decreases my cooldowns and makes some of those useless stats worthwhile? Cause I like it fast!

Why not add in new gems with pickup?

1 pickup radius every 20 paragon levels would be enough - with 100 paragon lvl you'll get 5 pickup radius; enough not to dance around the gold, and wd won't really super benefit from the change. i'd say big YES to the idea.

Health Globes and Pick-Up Radius are a bad combination. Increasing Pick-Up Radius as it presently works would be a punishment not a reward. I don't want to use it and I definitely don't want to play with people that do use it.

Increasing Pick-Up Radius will only be acceptable if Health Globes are removed from the equation.

I had the same idea in my mind.

I run a barb and I think this affix seems to be negelected. I won't search gear that has it since its not high on my list of affix's


Well, a lot of DH players do have it very high on thier list of affixes, and we are willing to drop other stats in exchange for pickup radius because it makes our runs faster. I wear 32 pickup radius on my DH, and am still looking to get it higher.

can't just add pick up radius to paragon. would mess up the playstyle of others.

gotta buy it if you want it.

Running on gold, around gold , gold hanging in the air...Having a pick up radius would be nice forsure, but please put a slight minimum that allows the player to pick up the damn gold if he passes on it 4 times for christ sake.

Remove Health Globes from Pick-Up Radius or remove Pick-Up Radius.

I think 0.1 yard every parangon level is the most efficient option.

10 yard lvl 100 is very fair, and it's not a disavantage for people who want to pick globes one by one.

Agree wholeheartedly, Gold pickup radious should be baked into Paragon Lvling instead of having an actuall affix that can appear on gear. (0.1 Gold Pickup Radious per paragon lvl, for a totall of +10 at paragon lvl 100 would be nice)

Gold Pickup Radious is not something iwant on any piece of gear, and whenever i get that instead of something else i sigh and wish i could reroll that affix.

Gold Pickup radious has never incrased the quality of fun in D3 for me, it has always been one of two affixes that made me go /sadface whenever i saw it on an item.

Ill end my post with a quote from an above poster that also points out why Gold Pickup is a rediculous affix.

Gold pick up is simply a fix to an arbitrary and archaic design feature.

Picking up gold doesn't give me any sense of immersion or a feeling of improvement. It is simply a tiny reward for killing the mob. The fact that I have to either run over to a gold pile or sacrifice an affix for this is inherently irritating.

I agree that pick up radius for health globes should stay the way it is, but there is no real reason that you have to either run over to a gold pile or pick up a specific stat on many pieces of gear to alleviate this irritant.


+1 like the paragon leveling +10 at 100 paragon is not much to ask..

i have no issue with the use of pick-up radius as a stat choice, my issue is with the actual performance of the base radius, i constantly have to run over piles of gold multiple times watching my boots step right on the piles over and over without it picking up anything. at very least the base radius should be increased slightly to help its performance, even adding .01 or .02 to paragon levels would be enough, +10 for a paragon 100 is way too much, +5 is even too much. i play a WW barb for the most part and i like having mine be lower so i can save health globes for when i actually need them, but am frustrated with the need to sit on a pile of gold before it gets picked up.

Along the same lines, auto pickup of some sort is completely necessary, waste so much time on cooldowns, etc. trying to pick items up or look at which items are worth being picked up.

Increase the minimum gold pick up radius or make us get a yard bonus for every 20 paragon levels. Just figure something out, it's frustrating to make tours on a pile of gold.

What everyone else has said: while some complain about pickup radius the rest of us are fine because we buy gear that has it. Let blizzard worry about more serious problems, like pvp and adding real content.


yes.... let's let blizzard worry about more serious problems, 7 months after the game was released as a FULL COMPLETED GAME for consumers..... let's let blizzard worry about completing the game....

Just took blizzard firing an entire group of developers for them to get in line and make some content/fixes that made players happy.....

Default pick up radius has to be more than zero. Please.

Making people gear for quality of life is a terrible idea. Probably one of the worst ideas ever to make it into D3. Not so much in the sense that it's game-breaking (it isn't; just baffling and irritating), but in the sense that it serves no purpose at all.

Gear should be about making my character more powerful. That's fun. That's exciting. Gearing to be able to get decent drops, or to not have to run all over the place just to pick up gold, is not fun. It's not exciting, or even interesting. And it never will be. I don't want to sacrifice real stats to put a bandaid on bad game design.

The original Dungeon Siege game had an autoloot button ten years ago. That D3 makes me actually have to physically run over gold and individually click items, and get specific gear to improve my ability to do the former on top of it all, feels incredibly archaic. It's ironic that in a game so focused on loot, the actual act of picking up loot is one of the most tedious and unenjoyable aspects of play.

Pick-up radius, magic find, gold find: all things that need to die in a fire.


If I could have clicked the "Like" button 1,000,000 times, I would have! Well said! Bravo!!!

That's well and good to have trade offs and it makes sense but trading another stat for pick up radius doesn't seem to be worth it and for some reason doing general searches in the auction house, pick up radius hasn't come up on good items that I have found. I really like the mojo that has a 20 yard pick up radius plus it can be one of the best off hands in the game.
