Blizz says D3 item hunt doesn't cut it

Basically Bashiok is saying Blizzard now realizes that there is nothing to keep players interested in Diablo 3 because their item hunting system sucks. Apparently, Blizzard thought this system would keep people entertained. Oh, how wrong they were.

yeah...I like the game but as I told my buds here at home...I don't see this game going as far into time as D2. I'll play it and get my money's worth but I doubt that 3 years from now I'll be playing more than once or twice a month if that much.

Seeing stuff like this makes me think that I should continue to wait...  :-/


I will be interested to see how they attempt to alleviate the "problems" via upcoming patches. Unfortunately, Bashiok himself sounds pessimistic about the future. Odd?

I was impressed he came out like that about the item hunt.  I would love to see affixes get much more interesting, thats the only thing really missing imo.  Give us some slim chances for an extra nuke or speed boost or turning into a goatman or something fun.

There's an upcoming patch that will enhance legendary items, but I doubt even that will do enough.  However, I think theres a pretty good chance that the game expansions will explode the item hunt a lot.  I remember how the addition of d2 runes was huge for the game longevity.  Shayagor, dont forget that 3 years from now there will be a lot more to it.

Im sort of in a waiting period for the new gear patch and hopefully maybe fix my intermittent crash
