Demonic Essence question

Am I the only one that thinks account bound items should stay in wow and stop creeping into diablo?


It's not a wow signature kinda thing, really. You can find account bound items in many JRPG's too.

Thanks for letting us know!

Those pesky Treasure Goblins weren't intended to be able to drop Demonic Essences, so we'll be checking their pockets behind the scenes to get this bug sorted out. :)


I think you could consider awarding (chance based) demonic essence outside elites and boss. For some random events, you fight a purple monster that drops a lot of items. Killing them, with 5 stacks, should grant you a chance to get essence. There's more random events in the first 2 acts. It would give an incentive for some people to do more events.

Maybe it's the greedy me speaking, but I believe shiny chest should have a small chance of rewarding essence as well.

After further consideration and discussion, we've decided to allow Treasure Goblins to retain their chance to drop a Demonic Essence. (Those goblins drive a hard bargain!)

Nice! Goblins in higher MP are a pain and sometimes you just have to skip them.

If you're taking suggestions here on Demonic Essences -

Can you allow them to combine into different crafting mats? Such as 10 Demonic Essences for a Brimstone, or 1 Demonic Essence for a few Equisite Essences or Tears?

Thanks!

I do not mean to necro my own thread, but you said that Goblin will drop demonic essence.
I have a couple of questions concerning this little goodie of a ring.

  • Does goblin spawned from Puzzle ring drop demonic essense if you're in Inferno?
  • If yes...
  • Will it be affected by monster power. I'm not talking about ilvl thingy, I'm referring to the chance of dropping demonic essence. If I play on MP 10 (I'm not and I can't), will the goblin have 80% or 20% chance of dropping the essence
  • And...
  • Is there any plans to make this ring a little better? I love the goblin proc, but once I hit team game, barely anyone ever use that. Goblins add some excitement to my routine. If they were made a little more viable outside followers, then team games would be quite fun! Imagine 4 goblins spawning while doing an elite pack! What to do!?

    So... U can only use demonic essence to craft pure !@#$ worthless items?
    Good to have if U want to craft 100% useless %^-* and spend some gold on it aswell, on of that its accountbound pure !@#$, so absolutely 100% worthless?
    I got over 700 of em atm.
    I assume dev team will make them useful at some point in the game?

    In fact the things they make as far as shoulders, gloves, bracers, and amulets (which, forbid you may have to roll and get) are better than any legendary drop in the game outside of some set bonuses.

    Think and research before you post and sound silly.
