has to be optional because not everyone likes dense mobs. Wve been throwing around the idea of a 1 to 10 scale like monster power, on reflection I think thats a bit much, no need, just have 2 settings, standard and some sort of onslaught setting where mobs are just maxed everywhere.
As for moving around, I think really I want to be able to wayshrine through the entire game up to the quest I am on, back and forth at my own discretion. I dont mind having longer load times jumping between acts, just let me hit an alk run and then keep going through zoltans archives and on to the cathedral and the halls of agony with fat monster density the whole way.
No man? No. There is nothing optional in this GAME. MAJORITY wants that SO THE MAJORITY WILL get that. Understand?
Can you find this blue?

instead of monster density level, would be nice if they made something like horde mode and monsters would drop only gold and health globes. at the end of each wave there would be like a mix of elite +a mini boss like skeleton king etc. wich guarantee to drop like 10 uniqe items and a chance for leg. there would be infinite waves harder and harder to get with mixes of 2, 3 ,4 mini bosses and maybe main bosses with some variations of their skills...
that would make farming xp more fun. there could be leaderbords for most monsters killed best spree etc. and who lasted most amount of waves...
that would actualy be good add-on to the game.
A comment on a4: too short, no home base. Lack of creativity in creating a 4th base so you decided to keep a3's homebase, Blizz?
except monster density....I'm so sick of act 3.
Wyatt: Unfortunately increased monster density in Act 1 and 2 in Inferno difficulty did not make patch 1.0.7. It is absolutely something we would like to improve, and it is still on the list for the future. I spend most of personal play time in Act 3 as well: Keeps 1, Core, Tower, Bridge, Fields. It's a matter of degrees, it'll never all be balanced 100% equal in all zones everywhere you go - but they need to be comparable within a certain tolerance, and we're definitely outside that margin right now.
