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

Yes.

As someone who plays solo most the time and melee based character, i think loot needs to be redone.

Melee characters, specifically 2H builds, cant stack anywhere near as much Magic Find as other builds. Theyre far too reliant on having mods thatre actually useful.

Its not fair that a summoner or sporker, or any other build that requires practically zero thought or effort to use, can stack 150+ Magic Finding stats and not even be affected by the stat losses.

I love this game, i play it quite a bit, but when im farming maps for days and hardly getting orbs, rares, or uniques, it really gets old.

The worst part about it is, when you do find something, its generally useless and thats the sort of gear gating that causes you to be unable to progress to higher maps (which is another issue since there are map only uniques that require you to play certain maps for a drop).

Others have said it and I concur: we need crafting 2.0. This would alleviate the unfair weight placed on finding good drops/currency we currently have post level 60. More control over the crafting=less reliance on the RNG. Vendor recipes should be the key to this.


+1

More deterministic crafting (recipes) = greater player agency.

Forget about crafting 2.0

Gamblecrafting in PoE is so bad it needs to skip one version and go straight to 3.0, but since first major releases are full of bugs, lets make it a revison: 3.1

Crafting 3.1 plox!!
Path of gambling addicts
I personally would rather see Quantity and Rarity removed from the game entirely and have the drop rates for everything else slightly increased to compensate.

I never did like the idea of having "MF gear", it just don't sit well with me.

100% FALSE

Especially on Softcore Leagues (I see you play Standard)

You can stack PERFECT magic find on a 2H Melee build and easily kill Dominus in Softcore. Even in Ladder.

This whole attitude of "my build can't do x this game is broken" is constantly echoed on the forums.

Like others have said loot is not that big of a problem, crafting is or gambling as you may call it. What orb we get are mainly hoarded as currencly (chaos', exalts) and add the gambling side of crafting and you have no incentive to make items yourself.

Good example thread that shows youre talking out of your ass, buddy.

Its a pretty well established fact that 2H builds are weak, the community knows that, the developers know that, the people maining them know that.

Looks like all youre doing is trolling anyways based off your post history. http://www.pathofexile.com/account/view-posts/Swagtrain

Solo they are not weak at all. In fact Solo a 2 handed melee character is probley 1 of the strongest , if not THE strongest.

Also totaly posible to stack alot of MF on a character like this for end game. Thing is solo u simply do not need to since your kill speed is ususaly MUCH faaster than all but the most OP geared dediacted MF characters.

Extreme kill speed + leach based tank > deicated MF character : for finding loot that is also it is a fraction of the coast to gear.
Just a sec let me grab a beer...@#*@ Ok how did I die this time

Learn the rules, it's the only way to exploit them.
