Kadala has been improved quite a bit, though it means less salvage mats, but most would agree its a chore going to and fro to the blacksmith

Infernal machines should be a quality of life upgrade for hellfire amulet farming

ADVENTURE MODE

Rift Guardians and Greater Rift Guardians now drop more crafting materials
Infernal Machine
In multiplayer games, the Key of Bones, Key of Gluttony, and Key of War will now be considered group drops
This means that, instead of players having an individual chance to find a key, that chance is now exists at the party level
If a Key of Bones, a Key of Gluttony, or a Key of War drops, it will drop for everyone in the party at the time
Greater Rifts
The Rift of Trials has received numerous adjustments in an effort to more accurately assess an appropriate level of Greater Rift
Large Aqueduct and Sewer maps will no longer show up in Greater Rifts
Kadala
Philosophy
While Kadala is doing a great job of giving players more control over finding specific items, we felt the current experience was a bit cumbersome and inconvenient
As a result, we’re working to reduce the frequency at which players need to run between Kadala and the Blacksmith to salvage unwanted items
The cost to purchase items from Kadala has been greatly increased
The chance for Kadala to drop a Legendary item has also been greatly increased
Bug Fixes
Fixed an issue that could cause Greater Rift Guardians to sometimes drop multiple of the same Legendary Gem

CRAFTING

Mystic
Enchanting
Philosophy
We want players to be able to more reliably add sockets to their jewelry in order to enjoy Legendary Gems
We still have long term plans to provide more outlets for excess gems and more ways to farm gems that a player needs; however, since those changes are further down the road, we wanted to improve the quality of life of Seasonal and Non-Seasonal players alike by making it easier to add a socket to your Rings and Amulets
The cost to enchant jewelry has been reduced from a Flawless Imperial gem to an Imperial gem
