It is important that you guys are aware that big changes and improvements takes time, so we will have to prioritise things on what we can be implemented faster via patches and what will have to be pushed for later implementation via expansions.
Thanks for this. We really want you to make the game better and better, bigger and bigger. And the one thing that is most important to us at any stage is that we know YOU are listening to our ideas and concerns. We players want the game to be the best it can be, as well as you do. Not all players and devs agree on what's best, but as you say, similar points are being made every day here. We need those points to be heard crystal clear by the people in charge of saying "Make this feature happen asap (read: soon)". There are so many good ideas and I think you even had a lot of them yourself but scrapped them at some point to make the game seem more streamlined and easy. But we want some of them back.
Even though it IS just another carrot to make us farm more in the same content, both the Infernal Machine and the upcoming new recipes make a lot of sense in a Diablo game. I love hunting and collecting and stashing these materials IF (BIG IF) they make sense to use later! Up until now crafting didnt make any sense, Whimstshire dont make no sense and even Hellfire is a huge gamble. But it is great for levelling alts with it even if the roll is baaaaad. And the uber fights still remain fun for me.
I am looking forward to hitting some bosses along the way now and receiving better rewards from elites as well. This broadens the scope of my farming. Plus, I feel that the material costs for the new recipes justifies all the blue c*r*a*p* on the ground because they salvage into essence for the crafting. That is exactly what you need to do with all the underused skills, underused legendaries etc.: MAKE THEM USEFUL IN SOME SENSE. Then we will farm for them and play with them and trade them.
