I don't want to use crafts.
I don't want to use su/ssu/sssu items.
I want to use set items.
I want to be different.
I want to have a set aura.
I like shiny things.
By the time you find a full set for your build you already have enough shrines and unique items to have way better gear.
I have been looking to finish my set for multiple weeks of constant farming.
I've collected over 4000 signets from only set items and still haven't completed my whole set.
I've needed the same 2 pieces at around 100-150 signets in. That is over 3.8k set items that weren't of any interest to me.
The set I just so happen to want has all the best base items possible of their item type. Ancient Armor, Hand of God, Gauntlets, Plated Belt, Hundsgugel.
This makes it an extremely hard set to complete as all the items are rare.
I am still missing the Hand of God and Ancient Armor after multiple weeks of only farming for them.
Why do some sets have to be so rare? Crafts and sacred uniques are better so why make a set rare just because it has a rare base item?
Ancient armor has a 1 in 5 chance to be the one I want which is Cinadides set.
So even if you find the extremely rare set Ancient Armor chances are it isn't even the one you want.
You can't even test out sets and builds around the set since some are just so rare.
There's probably a bunch of sets people haven't ever even tested since they're so rare.
I'm even farming on single player 1.1.2 where the drop rates are good and not the same as MP's lower drop rate.
I just want to play the game and have fun wearing the items I like which are considered to be crap compared to near perfect crafts and uniques.
For the love of everything please sometime in one of the future patches make a way to get rarer set items easier since.
Do I have to suck off the entire dev team for set rarity change?
I'm actually salty and felt like crying multiple times.
It isn't fun to farm for something all day every day for weeks and to not get it. When it's inferior to crafts where shrines are so common.
