“[no greens] tag makes me believe it’s quite beginner friendly”
I don’t know glenn, perhaps the problem here is the guy thinks a build full-slotted with legendaries is beginner-friendly simply by the virtue of having no greens in it? This got nothing to do with allowing budget MIs into g3, because g3 is NOT a beginner build cathegory to begin with. Because otherwise we’ll be calling builds like that beginner-friendly.
This is “new” since the tags used when Veretranga had compendium, right?
There are some builds that have G3 tag that has purple MI’s in the compendium.
If you want, I can find those so that they can be changed to G4/G5 (I guess that Purple Alkamos ring set = G5 since it’s two non-budget MI’s?)
For instance, Veretrangas Deathmarked Blademaster&Infiltrator are G3 now, have Purple Alkamos ring set, but it would be a stretch to call it G5 due to:
Also, from a technical standpoint. The items allowed in G2, the farmable Krieg, Dark One and Vanquisher set pieces are also classified as MI’s, right? So in some sense, all purple MI’s are farmable.
Hope I get the message across, I am pretty tired now and will go to sleep
Where is the boundary between “farmable” and “Impossible to get”?
Is it the same definition of “budget”? I.e. item can be (what does that even mean btw) obtained in 2-6 hours target farming (are we talking on average here or 95% probability or?)
6 hours, you can do like 40 SoT runs.
That will give you 85% chance to drop the Vanquisher item from SoT at least once.
It will give you 45% chance to drop one of the purple Alkamos rings, at least once.
What I am after is:
A clearer distinction what counts as farmable purple MI and what counts as a purple MI that is not allowed in a g3 tag build.
Perhaps a re-formulation of what g5 tag means in the “How to Use the Compendium (must read)” section. Getting the Purple Alkamos ring set is not in the same league as “Stonehide Kuba pants of Kings”.
I have 11 Purple Alkamos rings
Is soulrend impossible to get? I do not even pick it up anymore looking for better rolls.
It’s a typo. I started to type a new sentence before the “MIs are completely forbidden” and stopped midway.
We don’t consider legendary MI’s as proper MI’s because they don’t have affixes. Personally I call bullshit on builds that claim to be g3 and include Calla or Ravager helm, but whatever. Unless high-end builders start to poke me with it I’m not changing it.
It was supposed to be “Using any legendary item that isn’t target-farmable or faction puts the build into this cathegory. MI’s are completely forbidden”. Then I got distracted and ultimately decided to point the former elsewhere (in g2).
You did, thanks for pointing it out.
I don’t get it? What’s wrong with “in twelve minutes”?
Old classification of g3 is
g3 : No MI, full legendary/set builds with craftable boots. Also includes +5 (skill) Badge of Mastery builds.
So the way I interpret it g3 allowed +5 BoMs. Same as Calla/Ravager helmets I’d call it bullshit, but since it was ok before I’ll leaving it as is. Conduit builds are traditionally classified as g3, even though some of them are balanced around the particular resistance prefix (I had like 20 different Necro conduits in search of particular combo).
I dropped the sentence about BoMs because g3 allows legendary items in general, so it’s redundant.
Well, since I already acknowledged a typo, I guess I don’t have to answer that?
