Do you think PoE needs a "Loot 2.0" overhaul?

The Itemization in poe is surperior to any rpg i played, the gems that are skills, the sockets, links and all that, and the uniqe item affixes are good too and make build diversity, most of the items, some uniqes are very well designed like Searing Touch, Carcassjack, Abyssus,

some are garbage like all the leveling stuff
and then ther is that overpowerd stuff that only rmt or scamming or no life can afford but build enabling ,
what has to be fixed is that ther should be more items with the same affixes like chaos energy cannot bypass energy shiled to make it easier to make thoose builds, like the multiple curse items, you can get it from 2 items and the skill tree,


and remove map only uniqes that ruined the game for many

what i mean is ther needs to be more items with chaos damge does not bypass energy shield, but not as rare as shavronnes as example but with a drawback that you still got room to get shavronnes but get your build working withput it

No, we just need an auction house and to hire on Jay Wilson and we'll be all set.

Also mods can you move this to suggestions lol

Thanks... (NOT!) for the troll post. And no, this is not a suggestion, this post is to talk about how we view the item progression and loot drop system. So many 1 socket items and so few Jewellers and Fusings to do anything with "Loot Crap 1.0" at the higher levels.


Joking =/= trolling

love you bro

xoxoxo

IMO loot and item progression is fine for now and will improve over time.

Also desync is fine, very minimal at worst.

And 6 linking should remain only for the truly elite (unless you wear the poor man's robe aka tabula rasa).

That's my opinion on the matter. So no loot 2.0, no auction house, and no hiring Jay Wilson. That was called sarcasm.

I COULD go for a secret goatman/rhoa level though.

Another guildie chanced a volt on first try on a spine bow yesterday. and found an andvarius that same day.

Did I mention they are both European?

but seriously I want RNG to smile on me.

Are you inferring that the European server gives better, more frequent quality loot than the US server? Good luck getting anyone at GGG to admit that. More likely GGG will see that as a bug and have another round of nerfing on the European server.

edit: Or is the RNG in the European server based on the metric system and thus the loot drop rate and quality calculations work out better measured in metric? :)

RoS and loot 2.0 look awful, so no.
The problem with loot in PoE is that there are way too many moving parts. I recommend adding a "smart" function that tries to (subtly) weight gear type drops in favor of what you are currently using / your stats.

Not like every item dropping as what gear you want to use, but more like a little nudge preferring to drop your lowest ilvl slot or similar.

That has no practical effect on gear power (don't get me started on how muc hof a mess affixes are) but does make progression a little smoother and drops "more likely" to be useful to you immediately.

PoE's playerbase is fundamentally against the D3 design direction so yah. Even if the design direction of gear is in many ways better structured (not necessarily superior).

If "item progression...will improve over time" that is implying that quality loot drop at the high levels is currently not where it should be.

Yes, a secret Rhoa level would be cool. Nothing whimsical. Also I'm 54 and haven't gone fishing in over a decade. If GGG could see to it that fishing rods dropped more often then I could check out the secret fishing holes in Wraeclast. For those no-lifers or lucky SOBs that have a fishing rod can you do any ocean fishing?
