One of the things that made D2 really good is looking forward to unique drops. Considering how rare it is to get Uniques to drop in this game, the fact they are so weak is laughable.
In most cases rares (which drop way more often) are equally as good to Unique if not better many times. I do a ton of item swaps between my uniques/rares just to see stat differences even at equal levels or when uniques are even 20 levels higher and the rares are on par or in many cases much better than uniques.
One of the funnest aspects of ARPGs is doing item runs, I think this is something that is largely lost in PoE. This game has a ton of potential, but I do hope you guys improve the stat differences and also power of Uniques to make them feel like an amazing drop.
I understand legendary items are where its at currently, but Uniques drop at such a low rate that they should also be extremely pronounced and a much higher tier above rares - and that currently isn’t the case.
For instance, on my first run facing lagon I got destroyed with my entire build being made up of uniques and set items (why do uniques offer no resistance?), I did one lagon temple run got a bunch of rares with better stats that dropped instantly (those uniques took me forever to find), I went back and destroyed him, that shouldn’t happen, what’s the point of uniques then?
Please improve uniques and make them scale!
