I played the PTR on the EU server for a week creating a Hardcore Season Barb (till lvl 820) and a Season Barbarian (till lvl 750). I liked the plan of commemorating D2 by introducing the Ethereals. I did not like the idea that there are no Primal Ethereals.
Also guys please put a blue (Ethereals) and yellow frame stats border (Ancients) as you did with the red for the Primals.
And some crafting sounds for Ancients and Primals if possible. And lower the drop rates on ALL items, so we can cherish and value them more.
I have played D3 from the very beginning on all the three servers. I’ve seen all stages of development in that game. For me in those days D3 was a purpose in life. Every ‘simple’ legendary was so hard to get back in 2012/2013/2014. I remember playing days without a single legendary drop. And now what happened? Ancients, Primals and now Ethereals, are dropping like crazy (‘Ethereal rarity drop rate is set between Ancient and Primal items.’). Hopefully the above statement is only meant for the PTR. Otherwise Ethereals will kill the ‘Primal’ stars. Or please introduce Primal Ethereals.
And Blizzard, please lower that drop rate of ALL Legendaries and make us feel lucky when something drops, as back in the good old days, before Loot 2.0.
