Does anyone know why the designers didnt use those in the app? To me, loot and gear treasures is an essential element in evey dungeon crawler. Sure, buying new items in town is cool, but finding a new axe in a corner or maybe from a boss monster feels so much better and in tune with the genre.

At least i hope this returns in 'the delve'

Problems with tracking of drawn cards... App doesn't know which loot card you got. And request "did you get treasure chest" would be worse

Also, d2 is not a dungeon crawl. More of a puzzle, really.
In the delve, I believe, you would get items between encounters. So there will be chance to upgrade items inside one playthrough.

One thing is problem how to inform app about new item, you would need to confirm that is not a treasure chest every time you search. And when you pickup the item you need to provide its name, or select it from quite big list.
Other is that game balances the items heroes can get, some are accessible only on certain fame level.

Jinn's Lamp provide the same difficulties and I assume that app will never alow you to buy it.

By the way, you can sometimes find items while searching instead of drawing a search card

Also, in terms of finding cool stuff in the dungeon, I know of at least one case where there's a relic you can find by searching the right area.

Should be really easy to make in the app... Kind of the same way you assign which skills you pick. I mean.. The items are already registreted in your collection, so choosing them from a list after you draw a could could be made really simple.

Why would the app ask you draw a card and then select that card from the list in the app? It will instead just tell you that found such and such item and you will get it in the deck.

And such effect exists in the app. It may instruct you to draw specific item form the item's deck.
But this is different mechanic than treasure chest card and another reason why game instructs you to remove this card.

Exactly, they even already have the code, shops have random items, they could use the same code and just limit it to a single card. There is no reason not to do it, other than it's a fairly small feature that would still require some testing.

That said you can still use this card, you just can't sell the item

But in this case treasure chest still should be removed from deck

Yes, that was my point. Sorry if that wasn't clear.

Cause i want t to be as random as finding a fire flask... But yeah, it would be cool if the app just randomly dropped items in search tokes also. Kind of the same.
