Too much RNG and access to new content means to farm normal zones for hour instead of maps which is very boring.

That's the problem with crafting in PoE. It isn't crafting. It's straight up gambling, and the odds are against you. There's no way to guarantee you'll get anything in a given amount of currency invested. In 99% of the cases, you're better off financially just buying the item you want from someone else.

Sure, you could get a 5L on the second fuse, but over time, if you keep attempting to 5L items, you will average out to the established probabilities. Numbers don't lie. Case in point: I got my first 6L in about 180 fusings about a year ago. I couldn't understand why so many people were crying about horrible fusing chances -- that's until I attempted my second 6L which ended up taking 2167 fusings. My entire bank, gone. After awhile, I attempted a third 6L and got it around 1800 fusings. From then on, I only buy 6Ls. Never again will I craft my own.


You resumed exactly the point. I see only 2 reasons about that "game design" choice:

1. incompetence

2. make people addict (same patterns as in casino...)
