Bashiok agreed on the matter(see last link), that since Patch 1.0.3 the yellow loot is most of the time crap. The rolls on the affixes/suffxies seem intentionally bad. Some interesting Threads about Patch 1.0.3 on the official forums: The TRUTH Behind 1.0.3 - Hidden Footprints!: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/5890100318?page=1 Comprehensive Act 2/Act 3 ilvl 63 drop rates: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/5911881997 Can a blue post comment on bugged a3 / 4 loot with comment from Bashiok: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/5911501949#6 The posting: "Comprehensive Act 2/Act 3 ilvl 63 drop rates" is really scary. 1600 rares Itemlevel 63 and most of them crap.
