Now that a secret level is confirmed, is it as good as the old Secret Cow Level in Diablo II in terms of drops? Does the heavy cost involved in getting there (150,000+ gold) make it worth (equipment wise) to spend the time and money to gain access to the level?
It is a money sink and nothing else. I for some reason got tons of gold during Act II on normal. I played it normally and didn't get Achievements so did it again just to get them and then my friend got there so I decided to play with him so he could catch up with me so I got even more. By the end I just decided to buy the items since I even got the pattern for it. I am close to hitting 1 million gold Achievement even though I am only in Act II on Nightmare now.
