In D2 where would you go to grind "for a few hours" to find your Windforce? Where would it take "a few hours" to find your Tyrael's Might?.... It wouldn't, it would take thousands of hours at best, most people, including myself who probably over the many years spent hundreds or over a thousand hours on that game NEVER saw those drops, not "well I didn't find it in a couple weeks"... I NEVER found them. Thats how the game worked, and if you remember it any other way you are just kidding yourself.Quote from zachafella831
In D2 - Say I wanted a certain set item, well in D2 i could grind a specific area / boss for a few hours until I found it. Specific item locations were amazing and could limit the flawed RNG aspect.
In D3 - There is no specific area to farm certain gear. No certain bosses drop certain items, nothing of the sort. In D3 we can grind for hundreds and thousands of hours and only find crappy 2 handers all day everyday.
In D3, I feel like I have a fair chance to find any and everything, and I do, I've found pieces of every say for Wizard, (I'm currently running 4 piece Tal's bonus less than a MONTH after expansion release), I've found most of the list of legendaries at one point or another, new potions and follower items excluded. I'll take this system any day!
