A fan asked the forbidden question, presumably typing fast enough to finish the post before lightning struck him down for his heresy. And then he got a blue reply.
Why the obsession with DiabloWikiTreasure Goblins? Why are people so fixated on expanding the game around these little beasts? It really surprises me.
Grimiku: I think people suggest creating new events themed around Treasure Goblins because they incorporate several fun game elements.
You risk getting into a bad situation during the chase
You have a chance at being rewarded
It feels great when you prevent one from escaping
It’s exciting to discover one
Sometimes they require tactical engagement
They’re mischievous and mysterious
This is just to promote discussion, but why do you like or dislike Diablo 3 Treasure Goblins ? Would you like to see them in more events?
I’ve wondered this myself. I’ve been tracking all of my legendary finds for a few months, and in that time I’ve found about 230 legendaries, 2 of which came from Treasure Goblins. And yet… I still want them. They’re so Gobbily!
That said, I can’t resist going after the little shits. I brought Final Fantasy XIV Gil that up on the last podcast, asking the guests if they chased Gobbies when they were making a new character. And they both said yes. No one can help it.
Gobbies have terrible odds to drop a Leg, but at least in Inferno it might happen and be valuable, plus you get gems and Tomes of Secret. On Normal/NM/Hell though… why bother? They’re worth minimal experience and if you’re leveling fast on a reroll you probably won’t even bother to pick up those Chipped Topazes and Pages of Blacksmithing.
