Title: Profitably Useless Bounty Bug
Post by: schild on March 26, 2014, 02:43:30 PM
So, when you first load the game, it loads bounties. It assigns the "Double Blood Shard" Bonus to a random two of them. If that bonus is on Chapter 1, jackpot, because those bounties are laughably easy. Once you've reloaded until your bounties are on Act 1, you can run all 5, get double bloodshards, leave the game (as in exit to the menu) and reenter. It does not reroll the bonuses, but it resets the bounties. Basically, permanent bonus on Act 1 until you fully exit the game.

Have fun gambling for total shit, I guess. Or stock up like I am, because they'll be useful maybe some day. Lorath Knar or whatever is SUPPPPPPOSED to let you buy those Caches you get from finishing 5 bounties for 100 blood shards, but he doesn't. I'm sure they'll fix that eventually.

Since someone mentioned Bounty:

Apparently the caches for each Act have a chance to drop certain legendaries.

I pulled a Mad Monarch's Scepter out of the one bounty bag I've opened so far. Was an upgrade!

Since bloodshards do seem rather useless, is it better to simply do bounties on normal to farm super quick and then bump up to appropriate difficulty for the nephalem rifts?

Also illusion boots, pass through enemies? Would save me so many unnecessary deaths from melee waller spam.

Wouldn't all that accomplish is to get you more useless bloodshards even quicker?

Bounties seem like a good opportunity to find upgrades too. Lots of events/chests, the bag at the end, etc. Rifts do have the crazy mob density, but it seems like you'd be better off just playing all the content at T1+.

Got Pauldrons of the Skeleton King from an Act IV bounty bag. They're as amazing as they seem.

So for leveling, do act 5 bounties and clear all the little houses in the streets. The bounties (at level 62) give 1.8mil while the little rooms that take 2mins give 1.5-1.7mil
