Best new thing about items My favorite improvement of D3 over D2, is that you only see the items that drop for you! A separate bunch of items drop for each character that the other players in multiplayer can't grab. This was one of the worst parts of Diablo 2, the mad scramble for boss drops, or that faster person taking all the good stuff and not giving other people a chance. Multiplayer is so much fun, but in order to get items for yourself, you have to do solo MF runs. Otherwise it's crapshoot whether or not you'll get that extremely rare drop, like a high rune. I was always conflicted as to whether to join multiplayer or solo. Now, in D3, I won't have to choose!
