Last night I realized my view of D3 is sadly changing.
Its not something I expected but here it is...
I have 3 toons on 60. 2 of them are in Act 3 Inferno and the other one finished Inferno a while ago and can farm Act 3 with relative ease.
In all that time of playing and farming Inferno (mostly Act 3 with MF gear) on 3 different toons I have found 4 items in total for all the toons that worked as an upgrade and that I could see would help me towards progress.
That shows to a fundamental flaw in the game and it will cause players to "burn out" at a different rate. It is my opinion, from experience that the fan boys, like me, who replied and will likely reply to this thread will just take different amounts of time and playtime to reach this point.
Surely you are not suppose to farm an Act for 3 months and not get any real useful drops while being forced to use the GAH or RMA to make progress.
On the GAH you will probly hit a brick wall when gearing in Act 3 where the actual gear you want or need to really start enjoying the game more will cost you 20mil+ per item. Unless you are a botter and/or gold farmer this is not possible for the everyday working guy.
Imo you are suppose to farm an act for a bit and get ok gear and then progress into the next act and so on until you have killed Diablo. After than it should be playing more of the endgame (which obviously D3 does not have) while hunting for your perfect rolls and BIS gear.
The game is totally and fully dependent on the AH's and there is next to no feeling of reward to farming & playing the game in the long run and I think eventually most people will realize this and get bored, burnt out. So what now? Farm the AH as its much less depressing?
At the end of the day Diablo 3 is a game and the main reason we play games is for the fun and enjoyment of it right?
Not sure what to do atm. Maybe just play less or take a little break and hope things get sorted out or changed (I'm sure it will, but it might take a year or more)
Anyone else feel or starting to feel this way?
