Diablo® III

ACT 4 ?

well i have noticed that act 4 is ignored by a lot of people simply because ACT 3 is larger and it has the same drop rate as act 4 making act 4 completely useless

so why not increase the drop rate of act 4 ? or increase mob density or something like that just to make it more interesting to farm it

i know some people play it but the majority goes for for other acts

Blizzard are increasing the mob density for Act IV in the next patch, assuming the current PTR changes go live (most likely). They're also making Nekarat the Keywarden able to drop a random key (For the Infernal Machine), which should make him nice for key runs.

You can see the PTR patch notes here:

Yeah it looks quite nice. Always fun to kill more monsters :P

The patch release shouldn't be too far away either (a few weeks at most I guess).

even if they change mob desity in Act 4, i will not play it, i simply dont like it. act 4 in D2 was way better, dark, scary....
For me, the best = Act 1.....

We are indeed working on improving the monster density across all Acts, but we have not yet been looking into Act IV though: http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/7257016797#13

Considering how short Act IV is and how dangerous some of the monsters can be, increasing the drop rate based on difficulty, just like the XP gain, doesn't sound that bad to be honest. If you increase the density too much, it becomes chaotic and with all the tough monster types it could get pretty annoying.

Thanks for the reply..

monster density is a good start to encourage players to do ACT 4 runs, however you might also consider increasing the drop rate for ACT 4 (or something else more awesome) in the future :)

Cheers

Act 4 has more annoying mobs, the only annoying mob in Act 3 is the fallen maniac.

Act 4 can go to hell imho.

act 4 has the hardest monsters so it will still be ignored after patch

one way to make act 4 interesting is to allow free travel between all acts from waypoints but giving the rate at which changes are applied to this game i expect this to hit live sometimes after expansion

Latest PTR notes:

Certain areas in Act II and Act IV have received further adjustments to monster density

So what do you mean?

adding more mobs to act 4 is hard these days, loading the editor and adding more mobs takes over 25 minutes and testing over 3 days. It is understandble that the patch will not be out until next year.
