I farm the rogue encampment. Dual-claw paladin gives me the best results in there.

I'm all for balanced drops, but making an uberlevel like K3K drop so few set items (when it's supposed to have a Set item bias) completely defeats the purpose of "easier" places to farm. 

I vividly remember your own logic a year ago (when you made duncraig require teleport-like skills) was a person could farm easier ubers and eventually become strong enough to farm duncraig. "The hardest uber has the best rewards".

That seemed fair since some builds can farm K3k, some TA, but many couldn't handle duncraig. 

Now your logic is "farm duncraig noob"?

From what I gathered (and correct me if I'm wrong) the meta this ladder season seems to be:

1) Emphasis on runewords and crafts. Pre fauzt RWs and crafts can get many places on farm and springboard you to the next level

2) If you can't play without SUs farm bosses instead of uberlevels now

3) Tryhard status: rush a charm farmer first and gear a dunc powerhouse (most likely zon or wolf)

1) well apparently there's no point in farming anything other than duncraig. I'll reserve my judgement on whether item drops are balanced or not until i get farther into the game, but a destruction k3k run should always drop at least 1 set item (and apparently that's too much to ask for now). Sets aren't even THAT good.

3) this is what i get the feeling is the winning strategy (thank god i rolled a sorc first).

I'm not saying I agree or disagree with the current drop tables regarding places like k3k, TA etc... I'm just viewing the current ladder as an experiment not something that will necessarily make its way into the "final game" when it ends.

To that extent it's kind of like playing a challenge league in PoE with a bit of a tweaked rule set compared to what we are used to, which I am cool with, but some may (and do) disagree.

its okay guys, I usually find 1 set every duncraig run, that 100% guaranteed set per duncraig run worth it all (blue text) too lazy. lol
