This is one of many reasons why I have no interest in this. They should have overhauled the loot system to be more like Diablo 3, where almost any monster can drop anything. Doing Baal/Pindleskin/Whatever runs 1000 times in a row, to hunt for a specific item, isn't fun. Also, get rid of charms. The purists have Diablo 2 already, why not modernize the game for the rest of us? Oh well. It looks like the game is successful in doing exactly what it sets out to do, so I hope the purists are happy with it at least.
If you want a more "modern" experience there's a lot of other good games out there and D4 is comming at some point in the future.
Yea, that's why I said it looks they succeeded at what they were trying to do with D2:R. I just wish they'd have gone in a different direction, but I'll have to wait until Diablo 4 for a modern Diablo experience that isn't D3. It is what it is.
