It says this skill will be great use this season, but i don't see why...


Sometimes the goblins drop their loots in areas where your char can't go.... So you pick up everything with telekinesis

telekinesis is useless because you can use it only to pick up scrolls, potions, gold adn arrows. You cant pick up any otehr normal items with it.

Very good season the goblind design is very good altough i still haven't found a single rainbow goblin maybe the Arcane collector drops can be nerfed if the goblins will remain in the future.
Since i couldn't find a suggestion forum/topic I'm really sorry if there is one already.
Suggestions for future pathces :
Increased difficulty in normal/nightmare overall everything dies too fast and barely does any damage it feels like no challenge of course I understand the early game should be easy but kinda too easy also feels weird.
Increased mobs density in Hell for Rifts/Dungeons would be really nice.
Once again sorry if there is a place where i should have written my thoughts and Thanks for the awesome mod and devs.

As sp only person, I couldn't care less about goblins; the only thing I would wish for is that scrolls for helms and amulets become available through some other means. I hate knowing that my char is less powerful than he/she could be.

But then... chars and loot incompatible with 2.0? I lack appropriate words to describe just how much it sucks. I get it, it's most likely fundamental problem and not a whim of dev team, but it doesn't suck any less.

I really enjoy the goblin twist however....

THEY SHOULD NOT DROP CHARMS OR TROPHY'S!!!

That is so cheap.... It's cool that you can have a chance of finding good gear without days of grinding as a casual player such as myself, it really drives up the replay factor and has me hooked ! But you strive to get better with your gear to defeat these bosses and "earn" your charms . Getting them from a goblin drop is actually disappointing . Takes away from the replay factor

For me it actually worked the other way around.
A charm drop made me believe I can actually try to get one from a boss. Getting a trophy motivated me to actually try to grind for more which I never put enough effort and give up.

From what I understand it is because characters won't be compatible with 2.0 hence the goblins, for everyone to enjoy a little bit more than usual before 2.0 hits us with nice surprise :bounce:

Interesting... I assumed they tried it due to popularity of goblins in d3. So far, it seems to be a big success... Larger player base playing for much much longer this season when normally, season would of dried up by now. I think it shows an obvious interest in keeping goblins when the majority of the player base seem to enjoy them and this keeps them (the players) playing. I think reverting to how it was will have the effect of dropping the long term playability for most players. From my perspective as a casual player, goblins have kept my interest and got me interactive within the community and trading for the first time since I finally have items of value. I don't think the long time players will like this, but it's true, and an oversaturation of the market will level the trade economy from those with low tg to those with tens of thousands, although those are hardly my interests, but SB has mentioned it before and the other mods tried ideas to spend tg to level the trade section. From my pov, I'm only interested in keeping goblins for the sake of finding items without having to grind days at a time when I have a 2yr old and not a lot of time to play, but not if they drop charms...
