Okay just a wee question, I'm nearly sure Gaile said that hard mode was gonna drop like special skinned weapons which couldnt be gotten in normal mode, yet i still havent heard of any such weapons being found.
In fact the only hard mode exclusive item seems to be tomes.
Did i just pick gaile up incorrectly or are we missing new skinned weapons?
As to be honest i think thats whats making me not wanting to play hard mode, their is 0 exclusive content. Everything i can gain in hard mode i can gain in normal mode.
On one hand i have a higher chance of gaining golds etc in hard mode but then on the other hand i can kill things faster in normal mode. Ultimately after about 20 runs i kinda came to the conclusion that in high end areas; my gold weapon to time invested ratio was actually far more profitable in normal mode. (as i could also use my lockpicks more economically too)
I was really hyped about hard mode before it came out mainly because I had been led to believe it had new spankey pve only skills and new weapon skins; however it doesnt have either of these thus far. (i know the pve only skills are getting added soon)
Either way though, even if i did pick it up wrong, i still think hard mode should include an array of special skinned weapons otherwise whats the appeal?
(i know im gonna get a selection of people to say 'just play it for fun' and thats all fair and well. However personally i feel its more fun being given special rewards for investing alot more effort into something such as hard mode as opposed to its easier counterpart)
