Two random comments.
Since Components were considered to be used for some of the bounties and not having them would result in “less variety in the Bounties offered” I suggest people to create 1 thread and think of ideas that would be possible for different bounties (such as find a certain Monster Infrequent item or a combination a bounty that includes Health or Energy potions so they have more of a use or perhaps crafting a certain type of item/potion for more challenging bounties as you require certain recipes).
2: Inventory Issues due to Components:
The bonus %/# range could be lessened and the amount of bonuses could also be lessened. This way there will not only be less RNG but also - if the bonuses on components were the same and they could stack - less inventory/space issues and with less of a range the chance of having the same bonus %/# would be higher.
In any case with this thread although I chose “No” I am rather torn between the two options.
Sure better inventory management and quicker crafting / more bounties is a great thing. I acknowledge that. But in the end will there ever be enough inventory space? People will just keep hoarding something else like stacks of potions going to 100 or all the rare items that they craft (and I have seen pictures of this) or the Epic items with awesome rolls that they find. When legendary items are introduced and Faction items are added that too will also require inventory space.
Personally I just find the flexibility of the completion bonus to be incredibly useful and add another layer of depth to the game when it comes to the loot hunt where, let’s face it, it’s about finding X item with X rolled stats or X MI with X prefix/suffix. If you find Component completion bonuses tedious or unimportant then I wonder if you feel the same with pretty much everything else about the game when it comes to itemization.
Hopefully the devs can figure something out and if that means taking away the completion bonus to make everything now and in the future easier - then I sincerely hope they add something to make up for that loss of flexibility/layer of customization.
