I just hope corrupted items can roll mods more interesting than 5% increased cast speed :)


i'm imagining a gg phys weapon with tyrannical damage scaling mod as its corrupted implicit mod. maybe it will kill dominus in one shot.
To grind or not to grind, that's the question.

The entire game is built on it. If you dislike RNG, I would suggest a new game.
Heck, I would suggest a new genre. ARPG's are all built on RNG.

It's what keeps you farming loot, even after you've already got loot.

That all said, I think everything hinges on one point exactly;

What does corruption do?
Everything is nice, but everything also hinges on this fact ;)

Agreed but if it turns your gear into shit it's fucking gay and needs to be removed.

No they are not. They are merely a combination of the Action and RPG genres.

Plenty of them do this. It's again, to keep you farming.
One example of the top of my head was Hellgate and it's 'Augmentrix'.

Perhaps I should have been more specific?

Find me ONE Diablo-clone isometric ARPG that is not built on RNG, then I might agree with you. That is this genre's defining trait.

If there was a chance that your gear would become worse, but also a chance that the gear would become better... well then that's the sort of RNG I like - Add to this a possible way to remove corruption when it has a negative effect and we have some interesting options.

Just call Putin, he will remove it.
Of all sad words of tongue and pen, the saddest are these: /pol/ was right again.
Chris, please tell me there's a corrupted fishing pole near that badass looking water.

Many RPG genre is build on RNG. ARPG is one of them.

Regardless of semantics, RNG is the core of games like this. Anyone who doesn't like RNG will have to look for other games.
