Haven't we endured enough? I would really like to be able to farm my own gear, and if the closest I can come to that is farming for mats to make my own gear...so be it, but keep the drop rates for the recipes as is...or higher, or make them purchasable through a vendor. I don't care. We would still have to farm the mats, then pray to the RNG gods for a decent roll on the gear crafted.
I've yet to craft a decent Hellfire Ring, but after i crafted one, that didn't stop me from crafting a second, third, etc. Even if the recipes for all the new gear was just dropped into our inventories on patch day, we would still farm the crap out of D3.
I only wish farming in D3 felt as much fun as it was in D2. I'm hoping that some day it'll get there, but I don't think 1.0.7's release is that day.
