Tedious Bounties

General Discussion
Bounties them selves aren't difficult; if bounties yielded greater bottom line benefit, I don't mean more bounty materials, they would be worth doing. As is they tiresome, repetitious, drudgery; do a load of bounties and spend it all and end up with nothing far more than could be considered rewarding.

The one thing I got from bounties was the Sacred Harvester Kali uses. It took 5 months to get that a year and a half ago. Since then I haven't gotten anything close.

I feel the same way about Greater Rifts. After running the same 6-7 maps over and over and over and over and over again, it is nice to do something that isn't a Greater Rift.

This is why I don't waste my time reforging to get a primal. The enjoyment I get from the very rare time I a near perfect roll does not outweigh the amount of time I spent being disappointed because I got nothing for my mats. Some people enjoy playing slot machines, I don't.

What I would rather see is a buy out option. Since ancients are 1/10 chance and primals are supposed to be around 1/450 or something, I would rather straight pay out 10 times and 450 times the mats to get a random ancient and primal, respectively. They can leave in the slot machine rolls for those that like to spin the wheel, but I would rather save up my mats and get the ancient/primal.
I agree but at least you can do split bounties. I just try and do a split bounty once per day and have gathered quite a lot of mats doing so, and it normally takes less than an hour per day. It’s boring but it does break up the tedium of GR grinding.
Huh.

I found countless people defend this type of gameplay. Repetitive, boring, tedious, lengthy, unsatisfying, and soul-crushing, is the essence of the Diablo series.

This game is the epitome of coming up with creative ways to implement RNG.

I enjoy the combat, and when it was fresh, the story.

They want you to keep playing in their puddle, when we require an ocean.

It wouldn't be 'boring' if the rewards were better. It turns out to be a lot of "all that running around for nothing".
Reforge is by far the best way to get good ancient/Primal for rare Legs & expensive gamble types like weapon & amulets.
you need a friend ;-)
