Fire pents drop rate feels a little high. Can we say the design goal is for a roughly equal # of drops per hour across the pent areas (earth fire ice hell) if you have a character of level appropriate to that area killing at average speed for the area? In that case, ice and hell probably need higher drop rates due to demon MS and earth/fire pents need lower.
I think it would be better to have higher drop rates in lower pents. In lower pents you get alot of junk drops and even something with a decent stat on it isn't decent because the + is so low you can even get trashed orbs out of it. I was in fire yesterday and a AS1 chest dropped with a +1 or +2 on it what the heck is that lol.
Edit: The original post was lets raise drops in hell to get guys out of fire. Lets not fix this by nerfing fire. Raise hell if its need to be and leave fire and earth alone for us noobs.
