Goblins are rarely appears, even if it is, it most likely be normal treasure goblin.
Trophy Seekers are ridiculously rare that usually it's 1 after 3-4 treasure or baron.
Not to mention that 2.0 will be incompatible with previous versions of characters and items.
Might as well dump everything before it rendered useless.

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...



I agree with everything you said, expect for the charms/trophy. I think that finding specific charms like Laz, void, bone pile inspire me to go farther in the game because I typically cannot get those charms without having to grind out some items and hopefully sell them for some TG to purchase the charms I need. I think finding the frags/trophies from Goblins changes where I focus my attention while playing, for I as well have a 7, 1.5, and newborn. I can appreciate the 1-2 hours after everyone goes to bed. The unexpected drops of effigy/relics and MO's has drastically changed the trade market for I have found a ton of each and have a chance to use what I need and trade what I do not need to be effective in the league.
Anyway, Cheers to a fun league and keep up the hard ware Dev's. We the people appreciate it.

You guys get any Goblins except Treasure Goblin/Glowing/Arcane and Shiny? I have 107 lvl Sorceress, finishing A1 on Hell and didn't find any Voided Horror or Rift, Trophy or Relic Goblins. Not even to mention Rainbow Goblins... but i've killed like 100+ Goblins already. Sadly only 4 types of Goblins spawn for me...

That's pretty typical. You wont see rift gobs until uber rifts. I think torajan jungle will be the first place u can encounter them. Trophy gobs are pretty rare and relic and rainbow even more so.

Maybe a little unlucky u haven't seen a voided horror yet, but other than that it's normal.

You just completed the tutorial, now you are in the early game. This is where you can start finding them (with the exception of rainbow, that can spawn anywhere, but its extremely rare). You havent even entered a rift to find rift inspectors.

I found Trophy and Relic ones at K1K. There were like 5 of them in each run there...
Sadly I found Rainbow one at my lvl 35 paladin in act 5 3rd zone but since I didn't have staff at that time.. :(
Good luck to you in your findings tho :) I cant wait when this season ends tbh

I've entered the Island of the Sunless Sea, found 3 Goblins but all of them were Treasure ones. Bad luck :P

Btw i assume that mf works for Goblins too? Well almost 2k dmg from Flamefront and almost 3k dmg from Flamestrike but Goblins seems quite resistant. My barb merc with like 1000-1700 dmg does more dmg to them than me haha.

Sounds like you need -enemy Fire resistances. Use "Rha" Runes in your sockets after your resistances are maxed out. You want to try and reach around -100 to be most effective in the areas you're farming (K3K, Tran, etc.)
