Overpowered rewards in Diablo 4 won’t come easily & players need to accept that

Although many Diablo 4 players are complaining about Greater Affixes and Uber Uniques being extremely rare, it’s actually better for everyone if the drop rate is lower on these items.

Diablo 4 is a game that is entirely focused on the loot you get while playing, and the current Season 4 is the epitome of it. Titled Season of Loot Reborn, you can anticipate how much influence the high-quality loot has on every seasonal boss and build.

However, Blizzard has managed to make farming for Uber Uniques and Greater Affixes much more straightforward in Season 4 with the introduction of a new endgame mode called The Pit, and the Tormented versions of Uber Duriel and Andariel.

Greater Affixes are a great touch to the loot system in Diablo 4 as players have something to help them strive for better gear other than the limited opportunity of stumbling on an Uber Unique. The devs have increased their drop rates as well, compared to Preseason and Season 1.

Despite all of this, players still feel that Greater Affixes and Uber Uniques should be more accessible to the masses as most of the community has never witnessed either one of them in their inventory. While there’s some truth to that statement, that doesn’t mean the devs should casually increase drop rates.

Season 4 has been doing pretty well with their loot and rewards.

Arguably the most important factor behind running Dungeons and grinding endgame bosses in Diablo 4 is the hope of getting something outrageously good, such as the Shako with multiple Greater Affixes. Making such items easily accessible would just take the fun out of it completely.

From an even more simplistic perspective, think about it in a PvP scenario. Say one player got The Grandfather after hundreds of Duriel runs, while another is standing against him with a Shako after a few Helltides. This entire scenario is a bit unfair to players who have invested time and been grinding for hours.

But of course, not everyone in the world has all the time to invest in a game like Diablo 4, and everybody wants powerful items. However, Blizzard’s rewarding loot system has always relied heavily on RNG and grinding, and changing this to cater to a new group of people would not be the ideal move.

Once you invest some time into the game, and run some difficult bosses and Pit tiers, getting a powerful item is bound to feel much more fulfilling than continuously getting them through easier modes in World Tier 3.

So if you are looking to run some Dungeons and The Pit to get some nice rewards for yourself, make sure that you are caught up with the meta with our BarbarianDruid, and Necromancer builds.
