I have never posted on these forums because nothing has ever really frustrated me enough to bother.
But this loot system is garbage.
I put in the time to get to Paragon 100.. it was a long mental grind and I don't think I could do it again.
All along there was a carrot hanging over my head in the form of "phat loot". Even though I noticed that every Paragon level I completed, it seemed as if though I got less loot, I thought don't worry... its worth it! Paragon 100.. Legendaries will fall from the sky ! Boy was I wrong....
So after 600+ hours invested in my Barb I am stuck. I cannot afford end game items because nothing drops. At this point I am trying to wean myself off the game.. I still do about 3 - 4 MP10 runs per day at 625 MF with nothing to show. But ultimately I have wasted a ton of time on a game that has no reward for farming higher MP levels or for being Paragon 100.
(I haven't mentioned the countless times I have been scammed with items as well)
So if you are playing this game thinking that getting to Paragon 100 will increase your odds of getting loot... think again. IT GETS WORSE.
Dude, while I do agree drops are bad, your barb is pretty much endgame. You can't get THAT much better than that without a lot of effort/cash. You're looking for very high endgame gear, and that's extremely rare and expensive. You have nothing to show because your expectations are too high, and I bet that you could quite easily find/buy upgrades for my 150 hours Monk. Also, you have many crafted pieces, which means you upgraded you character recently.
You reached the regular endgame with your barb, start another character ! Or grind with your barb for another char ! Or find alternative builds or whatever.
There are a few people with over 300k DPS, but to achieve that you have to devote your life (or credit card) to D3.
PS : I agree that Paragon is pointless, that's why I have personnaly never cared about it.
