Diablo® III

Demonic Essence

So I have like 600 of these things now. Seems a bit silly. I don't think I could make enough gold to craft items at the rate I get essence, nor do I want to spend gold that way. Would be nice if there was something else we could do with them.

after playing d3 off and on since release i was around 120k with a skorn with my TR monk build. Due to the recipes using demonic essence I'm now at 195k unbuffed. I think the new recipes are well worth using.

Yea they're worth it for sure, i'm using crafted shoulders and bracers. I've tried maybe 20 gloves but it's pretty unlikely to craft better then what I have. I'm not saying the crafting was a bad addition, but if I were to use all these essence it would take all my gold forever, hardly ideal.

Just seems like since we get so many we could do something else with them if we don't want to craft anymore. Maybe pay 20 essence for Keys of terror/hate?

I tried to warn blizzard in the PTR feedback that demonic essences are not the bottleneck to crafting because you get essences much faster than you can get 75k+ gold per craft.

I get a demonic essence every 2-3 minutes but it takes a lot longer to get the gold. This isn't much of a big deal for flippers like myself, but I feel bad for the normal player that is forced to go broke using their essences or stop using them.

That's odd.

For me the rate of gold income is always more than essence(and other mats) drop. If you play the game properly, meaning to loot every gold, mats yourself, it should be enough for "self-fulfilling".

The only exception is the brimstone for amulets as legends droprate sucks.

If they weren't BoA i'd have AH'd them already like I do with all my tomes and brimstones and crap. They'd probably be next to worthless though since supply way outstrips demand as far as I can tell.

I'm a pretty meticulous looter. I still don't think I could keep up gold vs demonic essence. Full a3 run on mp6 is about 1 million gold in pickups and vendor, thats what, 10 sets of gloves? I get way more then 10 essence in a run. Not to mention I'd get less money if I was salvaging 100 yellows to get tears.

I might have my pricing wrong, shoulders is 100k gloves is 75k? Idk, I think my point still stands though.

I wish they dropped more not less. Cant believe some are complaining that a drop rate is to high. If you dont want them dont pick them up..

What language are you speaking? Seriously. I want you to go to work in the morning and speak to everyone there just like that. And film it. And put it on YouTube for all of Brazil to see.

i have no idea why u would ask OP to talk about d3 at work in the morning..

Anyway, the demonic essence were designed to give us a gold sink to compensate for the botters. There are many people sitting with 10b+ gold. The more that drops, the more we can use to waste gold. If you used AH recently, you would notice that specific items cost a lot less now.

good to know u have good enough bracers gloves shoulders and ammys on all 5 chars. OH WAIT

Edit: Looked at ur gear. Yea stop complaining and craft better !@#$ homie.

and i mean for your barb and WD. even your wiz can get lucky with a super GG roll. You are in control of what you want to do but roll some new ammys cuz ur tals ammy isnt very good and if u wanna buy a good one you could probably craft a trifecta one before that and for cheaper.

He would if he could afford the 50-60million gold cost to use his 600 demonic essences.
