I dunno what the hell was up but even the gold drops felt anemic. It took half an hour of playing at the end of act 1 to get a thousand gold. I would have expected drops around 20-50 gold by the end of act one, but I was still getting mostly 1-5 gold per drop. As I said, fucking MMO drop rates.

I'm assuming you play solo because in a group you most definitely get the kind of gold drops you expect (magic items is still spotty). I've played through most of Act1 three times now (I like testing out the classes) and I've made around 50k in gold.

And now I start up character #4

Actually my friend was watching me play and was boggled. He's playing as a demon hunter and was getting drastically better drop rates. Like, an order of magnitude better.

Have 5 characters running, all between level 5 and 20. Then I started a Harcore Barb. I have my magic drop on at least 2 characters to +50%ish, and get damn good drops. Last time through the Butcher with a new character I got 3 rares. Not a big deal, won't use them in a bit, but I like saving a nice rare total set for a new character. About 30 hours in the game total.
