Great suggestions and a thoughtful post. I'm sure they'll appreciate it and, once they've discussed internally whether it makes sense to explore these changes (or some iteration of them), I'm sure we'll get a response.
What is also needed is a functional use for stats other than the main stat and vit.
While Armor, Dodge and AllRes is ok, it is just not enough to make those stats viable for all classes.
01/14/2013 05:37 AMPosted by jling28I would also like to see a tighter stat range for Inferno Items. For example an ilvl 61 chest shouldn't roll 25 AR, 25 Str/Int/Dex/Vit etc but rather it should roll like 50-80 AR, 100-200 Str/Int/Dex, 100-300 Vit, as the affix level increases so would the minimum value of the stat range (the max value would be unchanged) so at affix level 62 it could be 60-80 AR, 110-200 Str/Int/Dex, 110-300 Vit, and at affix level 63 it would be 70-80 AR, 120-200 Str/Int/Dex, 120-300 Vit. That way there would be a much higher chance of rolling a useable item either for yourself or for someone else.

As usual? They tend not to respond to threads where legitimate concerns are voiced.
Personally, I think they prefer more of a baby sitter role.
Testa, GREAT post man. Very well explained and documented.
I cant imagine why no one at blizzard cant see this, or at least bring this topic to their game design meetings... oh wait... yeah... I know why....
RMAH ... Simple as that.
Testa you said it: getting a REALLY good item = winning the lottery.
The way the designed this game and the way they continue to "update it" is DESIGNED to be like that. Have some very lucky players to win the lotto and the rest to feel very dissapointed, un-lucky and take advantage of that while providing an "easy-secure-fast" way to gear whatever piece you need to actually enjoy the damn game.
Im NOT against AH... i feel its a GREAT way to securely trade and select exacly what you're looking for...
Im REALLY AGAINTS the RMAH... I have said it before and ill say it again:
This game was F****ed the moment they allowed REAL MONEY into it.
In other words, The moment ACTIVISION got its claws into Diablo... this was doomed...
Think about it.. If YOU were a high excecutive, making MILLIONS in direct profit, selling virtual swords and virtual shields.... Would you STOP earning $$$ and kill your Golden Eggs Goose???
I sure as hell wont... i wouldnt stop making MILLIONS each month just because some engry kids or some nerds want more free gear.... nop.. ill squizze the hell out of them untill the last drop...
