I can't find any decent items for under 40m, and I have yet to have more than 7m gold at any given time (I was lucky enough to find Ice Climbers and Unity both for under 100k, the rest of my items I actually found). I'd rather not gold farm or flip as that sounds boring. Hopefully this issue will be fixed but it is not my main problem.
Hellfire Rings: I'm sure these are not worth the time but I am a completionist and thought this sounded like a fun thing to do beyond farming. I have been working towards getting the keys since I was at level 0 paragon. I am now lvl 23 and have the act 1 and 2 key. THAT"S IT! I have killed the act 3 warden with MP2 (yes that's all I can handle) 25 times now and no drop. I have killed him with 5 stacks (obviously) in public games at least 25 times now with no drop.
IF it only took the 3 keys and plans to make a hellfire ring, this would be perfectly fine. HOWEVER, I have to get lucky enough again to get ONE of THREE parts to make the ring. If it takes me 23 levels and I don't even have HALF the ingredients to make the event that MIGHT drop 1 of 3 more ingredients, how the hell am i supposed to ever complete this without buying better gear so I can run on MP10?
It is seriously frustrating the crap out of me. I want to play this game and have a reason to enjoy it, but if it will take 300+ hours just to get ONE part of three for a ring then I am seriously losing motivation to play this game. Also, I have seen someone else say they ran act 3 warden on MP6 about 12 times with no luck. Is something wrong with act 3 warden? Me at 20% chance on 25 runs and nada, someone else at 60% chance on 12 runs with nothing... I know it might be really bad luck, but it's pretty discouraging.
