I don’t think I ever want a way to farm diamonds other than the method that we have now. Here’s the thing for me:
I find the hunt is a whole lot more fun than it is to actually have the mythic.
Yes, I know it sounds crazy but if mythics were so easy to get I probably wouldn’t even be playing this game. I just find the whole concept of taking on the rng and saving up the diamonds fun… sort of like giving myself a goal.
Last December by chance I got Elemaugrim through the event chests. That was my first time getting one from the event chests. Little did I know I was super lucky.
A few weeks ago I asked on this board if I was able to get High King Irongut through the event chests. Everybody said he’d be in it so the hunt was on. I got super lucky after warming up the rng with a few hundred gold and glory keys and got him on the 40th event key. THAT was fun. I did my whole Luke Skywalker ritual thing before opening up each event key… 40 freaking times. My wife thought I was a lunatic.
Skip over to last week I had a bunch of diamonds racked up. Made a post as to whether I should get Possessed King with my diamonds or save up for Megavore on this round of Mythics. The responses I got were awesome as a lot of people gave their opinions and I learned a lot. I wound up going with TPK and it turns out because Megavore wasn’t in this week I’ll have enough by the end of next week to get him if he happens to show up.
The point is. If I could farm the diamonds then I could get any mythic I want. I wouldn’t even need to ask anyone for their opinions because I can get them at any time if that were the case. To me the whole getting a mythic thing is fun because you gotta manage your resources (diamonds) or get lucky with the rng. Asking for people for advice here is awesome because you learn so much just from reading what they have to say. To me, that’s all part of getting a mythic and that’s why I like it the way it is now.
I definitely don’t want them to cheapen the experience. That’s my take on it.
By the way, raging like crazy when the rng doesn’t go my way is sometimes more fun than getting the mythic itself. I’m due for a tantrum session and my wife promised me she’d record me when it happens so we can post it on the facetube and make millions. =P
