Boon of the Hoarder not Dropping from Guardians in S3

As the Seasoners assemble their array of Legendary Gems in Season Three, one Gem has been coming up missing. The Boon of the Hoarder. Initially dropped only by Greed in The Vault, some patches ago the devs changed it so any Guardian in a Greater Rift could drop the Boon, once you’d found the gem from Greed in the first place. This was helpful if you lost the gem (Hardcore) or just wanted a second or third copy, but didn’t want to have to find The Vault again.

More Treasure Goblins in Season Three?

Are there more Treasure Goblins, and/or more of the rare types, spawning in Season Three and/or Patch 2.2? I’ve seen that stated in numerous comment threads, most people in clan chat feel it’s the case, and I’ve definitely noticed it in my own play so far in S3.

It’s entirely possible that there are some bugs, and lots of players say if you kill them too quickly they won’t split.

Double Goblins + New Goblins = Auto Pickup Required?

Plenty of fans have spent the last two years asking for a way to auto-pickup materials and gems. I wasn’t always one of the petitioners since I didn’t totally mind a bit of left clicking. It reminded me of my Diablo 1 and Diablo 2 roots! Back when I was young and optimistic and had a fully-functioning right forefinger.
