Sometime people talk about how you have to waste time to find the staff's parts, plus the gold...
But, even people who already have the staff, even those don't run it.
Thing is, there's nothing special to earn in whimsyshire . The mob density is actually terrible.
I 'think' that Blizzard's intent with this zone was not to make D2's cow all over again. They don't want people to just run that zone. So "Just put 20 elite packs in there and be done with it!" wouldn't work, because then no one would run anything else.
My solution :
Somehow make the zone 'charge' itself with mobs and elites when you kill stuff in the act.
If you create a game and open whimsyshire right away, it's empty/almost empty.
But everything you kill before opening the portal, grants you an higher mob/elite density.
Kill a few elite packs then the butcher?
Get a few elite packs and average mob density in whimsyshire.
Kill 20 elite packs, butcher, Jailer, keywarden, and tons of white mobs? The zone is full of mobs, lots of them being elites.
Clear the entire acts, all zones, all dungeons, all bosses, all quests? Enjoy the highest elite density of all Diablo in whimsyshire, tons of elites and bosses everywhere, insane mob density, you're basically mowing down through lines and lines of ennemies.
This fix wouldn't really affect people who just run the same run over and over ( alkaizer&cie ), but it would give an alternative/opportunity for those who clear more zones in their runs, and ensure that some people, at least, would play in whimsyshire ( those ponies and carebears must be bored as hell ).
Thoughts? Other suggestions?
