When I saw the upcoming changes to Shame, I originally thought it was a good idea. Who else is sick of not even bothering to look at the 75+ items on the corpse of every champ and boss you down? Changes were necessary. But do we really need such drastic changes? My biggest problem is that every single item that drops on a corpse in Shame is a 'new' item. When it was announced I thought maybe getting an item with the new tags and properties would be rare, and mixed in with our current loot system. I know stuff with higher marks (Artifact/Greater/Legendary) is said to drop less, but who cares? I've seen items with just Lesser/Greater magic items that far exceed actual artifacts. And the fact you can pull these from anything is just wrong. It's ridiculous and they need to sharply decrease the drop rate of all new items when it is rolled out. Keep 80-90% of our current loot system in place, and mix in just a little of the new stuff to make it rare. Someone in another thread mentioned the death of current artifacts, such as the Soulbinder's ring, Coral bracelet and Orny...not to mention all the other weapons that nobody uses anymore. Is anything going to be done to preserve the desirability of these? Off the top of my head, I was thinking how cool it would be if current artifacts would be allowed one imbuing slot as part of the new loot system. Or will nothing be done?
