What interesting random loot have you seen pop up in the new content? I think the most unique one I saw was a Banishing Quarterstaff of Disruption. Yup, two instakills on one weapon. I didn't take it though, because there was a Magma Greataxe of Undead Bane.
I personally have always been more of a random loot person vs a crafter. Crafting always seemed like too much of a grind.
