[quote=“bradoplata”]If it takes 15-20 minutes to kill a cartographer on a blue map when you mowed through everything else? I had to buy a map because I thought I was stuck with another immortal boss.
The ability to customize with impunity is gone with the new update, so instead of happily farming away on lower levels I’m having to redo maps because of “bad luck affixes” twice in a few hours. [/quote]
If it takes 15-20 minutes to kill one boss, you’ve definitely hit a wall, which will happen eventually regardless of how much you’re able to easily change affixes on your gear. That’s part of the problem of infinite progression. On one hand if you ever find anything that’s an upgrade, you might be able to move on. On the other hand, eventually you will not be able to progress, and it will feel like the game is being unfair to you.
That said, we are looking at some of these affixes paired with certain boss affixes for the next update ( 1.8.1 ). Some are too unfair, and we’ll see what we can do to encourage more diverse play, instead of sitting there wailing on a boss that heals infinitely.
I’m sorry about your first green not being good. There’s many Legends that suck, and sadly their Eternal versions will suck too. We plan on addressing this in 1.8.1 as well ( as well as empowering Mythic items ). The goal of course being that more good items will be dropping for you, and less disappointment from IDing an Eternal.
[quote=“bradoplata”]Sorry to be a little bitch about this, but a game I liked has changed dramatically, and I got left behind. I just don’t see the pay off to continue with my time investment. I’ll still play occasionally, but nothing like I do now.
Good luck, and hope you get the success y’all deserve.[/quote]
Either way, thanks for the feedback. It was great talking to you at PAX, and we’re definitely hearing you on your concerns. It takes time, but we plan on having better items that you can look forward to, better Mythics that you can create, better rewards from Feats, and more fair Maps affixes that you can beat.
