OK here what happened.
I’m a new player here.
During my very first playthrough, I read every quest, every line of dialog thoroughly.
First because the story can be a little complicated, second because people worked on it and deserved this respect.
During my actual playthrough, though, and I expect during the 1000 next, I did what I expect everybody does : I fast-clicked dialogs, eager to return to my happy hacking and slashing.
And then, near the end of 9th act, I just lost 100.000 gold on a joke.
I understand it’s my very own fault, but I can only ask : when did somebody think lose a hundred thousand golds on a joke is funny for the player ?
I know, everybody here has a dozen level 100 characters and a hundred thousand golds is a spit in a sea of gold, but when you are in your second playthrough, going from 107.000 golds to 7.000 is a blow.
I have no issue with losing golds because, well, I gambled and lost. It’s an ingame feature.
And i know i’ll get this gold back fast, it’s not the problem.
Losing it this way, it’s like a punishment because I was in a hurry to play (and have fun with it). It really stopped my session on a bad feeling. It’s only a temporary bad feeling, but it’s real.
In a game where loot drop rate is carefully balanced to give the player a constant flow of little good feeling, this bad feeling is really ill advised.
(sorry for this froggy english and thank you for your benevolence)
