    About time. For those wondering, the base numbers for T6 shards are 100, and there is a 12% =/- deviation which gives a range of **-112.

    Blizzard must have gotten a lot of crap for shortened gambling sprees.

    This really doesn't make them any longer, though. The game still needs a higher blood shard cap, now.

    Nice to see they're doing something about the blood shards, though it's only for people geared for at least Torment I that can get Trial Keystones to drop. Still doesn't help the people who rolled new characters in any way, shape, or form. Not to mention the stupid blood shard cap. Hopefully they don't settle for this as their sole panacea for Kadala.

    They should really implement reagents auto-pickup.
