This isn't a troll. I'm curious because, I have a hard time understanding the perspective, and I'm mildly interested in what the driving factor is. Maybe it's something I'm missing from my game, or even in general. I used to play the "workhorse" style back in july on my softcore barb(which still has july/august gear on) but it became so mind numbing that that was why I had switched to hardcore in the first place(which I was gonna do day 1, but I had some gripes about some design choices ingame - like invulnerable minions).
I have my different reasons and "goals" while playing the game that drastically differ from the average player here(especially if you were to goto General haha...), and I like my way of playing so much that I have a difficult time understanding why players enjoy doing the same exact thing day after day.
