    I think AsRock is right.
    The only reason to get more gold is to buy expensive stuff in theG AH.
    If a ton more gold drops then the prices in the GAH would follow suit and become even more ridiculously expensive, which would solve nothing.
    IMO, putting a reasonable cap on what an item can be sold for would be a better solution.

    As for 2H weapons ... all the stats on them have to come up so they are comparible to a pair of 1H'ers or they will never be very popular (or valuable).

    I never said by how much the gold should raise: just that there should be a clear difference in the amounts each difficulty gives.

    Right now, i can get "less then 10 gold" drop many times in Inferno difficulty (not counting goblins) but in this difficulty, the lowest amount should be like 50 and this is not counting the + gold gear nor the Nephalem bonus.

    With the Nephalem bonus (just over +100% gold total), the max i get in act 1 inferno is just above 1300 gold. Maybe a raise to ... say ... 2000 gold in this act for the maximum should be enough.

    This raise in the minimum + maximum should be enough, no?


    Agree with your opinion of 2 handed weapons but would add something to it: because the speed of these weapons is far smaller, the dmg done must increase even more to compensate for this handicap.

    Magic gear is a hit and miss situation with more miss than hit. I'd personally rather do runs with gold gear so I have a guarantee that the items on the AH are what I'm looking for. Not point settling for second best when your dumping 200hours+ into farming every month.

    no sense in magic gear when the top most of the roll would be a legendary.. if you fail that roll, youd get a 6 affix rare.. complete with increase gold / health globe pickup with 10000 yards.

    Well when i mentioned about gold dropping I was more or less saying instead of dropping so many items (because soooooo much crap drops), drop less crappy items and drop more gold in such a way that overall value evens out (because you sell the crappy items for gold anyway).

    But counteract the less items dropping with better rolls of course. So less items drop, more gold drops, if an item drop it has a higher chance of being useful.

    I think once something new comes along the thread (and game) will pick up again.
    This, of course, depends completely on what they do with the game.

    The end game is non existent. You farm items just so you can farm them better. Dumb

    And to a lesser extent, other games are out. Sales give people plenty to do. Better things than waste time farming..

    Farming items has always been a staple of the Diablo series.
    The problem is that you never find anything worth a crap. Even if you do find something you can use, it almost always is "marginally better" and you never get that "I found something awesome" feeling that is the catalyst and motivation to keep you farming.

    I always liked farming set items. Getting a whole set gave you a feeling of accomplishment, even if it was not super powerful.
    Has ANYONE found a complete set yet without using one of the AHs?

    Impossible, if someone farmed 24/7 since release its unlikely to have found a whole set.

    That's my point.
    Many TPU people have 100s of hours in the game.
    Has ANYONE here found even two pieces of a set?

    The only one i've found thus far was the head piece of Immortal King's.

    Found 10 or 11 legendaries, though: all crap, ofc.

    I keep finding inna's armor lol. And countless and pointless less uniques which i bet will not be found later if they make them better.


    There is just left overs left to drop now it seems.. Games going down for sure as i replace already good gear no one wants to buy which makes me think they already have some thing comparable.

    I've found one legendary and zero set pieces.
    My character is wearing a set piece, but that because Urlyin gave it to me. :D

    Hopefully they make some changes as I really like the game. I just need some motivation to play again. Something new to do.
    If they do PvP right that might be crazy fun.

    @AsRock : The GAH had a ton of Inna stuff, so it must have a higher drop rate than other sets.
