    It is just too darn easy to loot a decent clean gargish amulet or necklace. Never mind looting the high end ones. They are as common as fish steaks these days. Please tone them down asap devs. Everywhere I look I see players wearing and abusing them :(
    It's almost like they were specifically designed to only run a certain way.

    I guess that makes sense though. I mean it would have made zero sense to introduce them into the game if they were all just going to spectacularly suck right?

    *SARCASM* FTW ! LoL I hear ya... I think in the span of time that I have pulled 4 Clean Legendary Itesm I've also pulled 2 Garg Necklace / Amulets that were Clean Greater Arty's or better... and that excludes the fact that the mods on them are still crap enough that only at Greater Arty level do I still gain by wearing it..

    Yeah I never get crap for amulets or earrings and I farm a lot... They all are crap ones or just don't pop.

    I get but loads of jewels though.... mostly crap

    They need to let more clean items be released in the loot in my opinion doesn't need to be godly but I've been farming like crazy lately in shame I killed over 4,000 Unbound Energy Vortex's recently, and yes i can prove it because I have over 18,000 crystals eaten so this isn't sarcasm. I haven't gotten any good items I would remotely use and the 1 garg item I did get was an amulet lesser artifact with exactly 505 weight to it... lol Which I could of just crafted nothing special about it. Had high resists SI 8, and 1 other mod.

    Agree! The cursed property is too common. I would like to generally see more drops without any negatives but of course with properties scaled down accordingly.

    Also agree with the sarcasm in this thread on gargish necklace and amulet drops. They seem to drop very rarely.

    Not a great piece by any means but still 100x better then anything I have ever seen. And I have farmed a ton and spammed ingame quite often offering up to 500 million gold for a good warrior one.

    I would pay a good bit of gold for it though just to lock it down on a floor and say that there is at least one decent garg necklace in the game lol.

    You have to play a gargoyle to get gargoyle minax items.

    1 legendary, and maybe 5 to 6 majors all being worthless...

    Just did another 2 to 3k im estimating by crystals eaten not everyone has the shame crystals on them but anyways


    Haven't gotten another legendary and prolly 4 majors being crap...

    Its a pretty big turn off and waste of time. The biggest issue is you get stuck with two names those names containing so many crap properties that get stuck on there
    So it makes getting something decent to use very hard.

    I've been farming Andros for alittle over a week. 6 to 10 Andros a day and 2 to 3 wisps per Andros. 99% of the loot is cursed. I pulled one legendary pair of legs that weren't cursed but they couldn't be repaired and had useless mods. I tried running both max and zero luck suits. It made no difference everything ended up cursed. I guess it's a good thing they gave us imbuing and reforging because it would be near impossible to build a decent suit from monster loot.

    Yeah luck has no effect on the item being cursed or not, luck effects how much loot drops, if the item will have an extra property, and helps the overall weight of the item properties.

    OK I gotta ask... Your throwing out HUGE numbers of Vortex's killed... At the VERY best for a solo character your looking at like 2.5 Minutes to take one down so your looking at like 145 hours solid(3500 UEVs) not counting respawn time or repairs etc lol. Are you using a Single Account or multiple characters to kill stuff?? If your talking like 3 characters then I've seen it dropped down to like 1 min per but that's still like 58 solid hours heh.. Enlighten me!

    LOL.. fixed my special math so it's not simply a # that makes no sense...

    Thats some crazy math. 1 per min: 3000 kills = 3000 minutes / 60 = 50hours...

    but the extra property bump the item up to cursed level i thought? i used to farm unbounds with 0 luck the loot table is so high i always thought higher luck would bump too many items up to brittle / cursed / non repair items.

    I'm going to interpret this to mean 8 characters attacking each UEV or maybe... umm I dunno lol.
    I really don't think you can farm Unbounds faster than maybe 1 kill per minute bc I doubt they spawn that quick.. so if you assume 1 kill per minute then 3500 ish Unbounds killed in 1 week at 1 kill per minute = 58 hours / 7 Days = 8.33 Hours PER day farming with enough characters to take them down in 1 minute.... Umm....... Well..... I made 2 assumptions 1) 8 characters?? from your statement.... 2) They don't spawn faster than 1 / min. If either of those is drastically off then the numbers are also, but Farming 8 hours a day for a week???

    That's the way I understood it as well. Although it looks like SoulWeaver has put the time in to have a good understanding of how it works.

    Thanks for sidetracking my thread SoulFarmer!

    No matter though. I still believe that the gargish necklaces and amulets need to be toned down. Just this past week I farmed 16,000 UEV's and got 8,000 legendary artifact gargish amulets alone. I don't even bother to loot them off the UEV corpse anymore :(
    I have no idea what the Devs were thinking when they made these so easy to obtain with such high intensities.
