Heard that, until about 3 runs ago I was sure the soj hoppers were empty and I was just about to ask Moogie to please refill them because I haven't seen one for so long, but all of a sudden, 3 soj's in 2 cash runs with the appropriate game changes....
I run close to as hard as you as my playing time lasts about 1 hour or less 3 or 4 times a day, I use rips to generate the cash as I find bunnies harder to kill.
I'm not seeing bad gamblings on the good rings, I have a mule so full I'm going to have to start throwing good stuff out to make room and some order so I know what's on the mule.
I have an alternative that I think falls between you and Highlander as far as soj gambling (feel free to correct me here if SOJ's aren't the goal).
My original question about gambling drops was about the way too often ocurrance of set items. There are times that I can get 3 angelics in a 12 ring buy or 5 ubers in the same 12 ring buy, I think they are crowding out the chances of getting more decent rings and was wondering if the set items could be turned down, not the instance of uniques turned up.
What's your take? Anyone else feel free to have an opinion here also
Just my 2
