Is the primal version of the ring the perfect version?  I take it a Puzzle ring version of that is not so useful?

When do the primal stuff start dropping?

ouch. i got a primal bovine bardiche the other day, but that ring would be worse...

you have to complete a solo GR70 before primal ancients can drop. i'm sure someone else can chime in with the odds, i don't remember.

So, do you save it for a gob portal, or do you take the 15 souls?  ;)

Primal puzzle ring. Would be a good thing if Blizzard had included a primal vault. Can you imagine? Packs of gobs in every room all the way to Greed. Greed herself would be shooting off gobs like multi coloured popcorn and when finally slain she would drop a dozen treasure chests.

The way I envision it, it would take an afternoon to bring all the loot back to town.

Yup.  And you'd only have 60 seconds before the room closed.   ::)

You're right, you wouldn't have all afternoon. But I'm not giving up on my Primal Vault. Let's do the math and see if it works with your rigid time constraint.

 4 players work through the levels of the vault going back and forth to town as needed. No need to rush at this point because the timer won't start until the fat lady sings. When they finally get to Greed's door their inventories are clean - 60 free cubes.

They enter, wake Greed, but they don't kill her too fast, maybe giving her 5-10 seconds to pop gobs. They don't want to wait too long because she can rain down a lot of pain and it is not a good day to die. So, say, 3 gobs per seconds, -POP, POP, POP -so likely 30 gobs at most. 20 are normal gobs another 6 are gold, gems and mats leaving 4 gobs that would likely drop more than 1 legendary / set item with maybe 2 of those being jellies. In total, they might drop 25-30 legendary / set items and piles of mats.

Once the gobs are dead, they kill Greed and the timer starts. A dozen chests with an average of 3 legendary / set items would be another 36 so together with the 25-30 from the gobs, my primal vault would drop 60ish pieces you'd want to get back to town. If half the items require 1 slot and the other half 2, the four players would be able to take 30-40 back to town in one go. If they simply dropped them on the ground when they returned they would have lots of time remaining to make that second trip and cash in on all the loot in the Primal Vault!

Alternatively, Blizz could flip a switch that forces the Primal Vault to be closed the old fashioned way.

Dream alive! Make it so Blizz!
