Following hot on the list of Reaper of Souls hotfixes we posted yesterday, Blizzard has added a bunch more. Of most interest are the buffs to legendary drop rates in Torment, and to legendaries redeemed from gambling with Kadala.
I don’t think anyone is going to complain about more legendaries dropping or turning up from gambling. I just mentioned in a post earlier today that the gambling rate seemed much too low, since 1) Shards are much scarcer than they were in the beta, and 2) Gambling can’t roll the better, Torment-only legs. Perhaps Bliz was thinking along similar lines?
Update: A bit more from Lylirra in the thread:
Lylirra: It means that we anticipated possible issues with the long-term reward curve at higher difficulty levels based on feedback and game data thus far. As a result, we made some changes to hopefully preempt those issues before they could become prevalent or pronounced.
any chance you will be increasing the drop rate for the materials for reapers wraps? As it stands i think its nearly impossible to get that item.
Lylirra: The current drop rate is actually bugged. We’re still working on a fix, but have not yet developed one. Definitely on our radar!
It’s actually in our Known Issues list: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/11883998315
I just hope that Kadala isn’t the #1 way to farm for legendaries though. That would be bad and trivialize pretty much everything else.
Lylirra: We agree, and this will be something we continue to actively monitor over the coming days, weeks–even months.
