How many other people do this? The Tinker classes only seem to result in outdated equipment for me because there are so few Tinker shops and crafting items (plus some crafting recipes are unobtainable), and the unique enemies who use Tinker talents are some of the most dangerous combinations I've come by.

I just feel like it's not worth it for the coolness of a Halfling Gunslinger.
I haven't played the main campaign since the release of Embers, but I have thought about disabling it as well since I read about some really nasty talents for the unique enemies.

I think the worst offenders have been fixed with the last update...
I think you could just go into addons and turn it off like anything else before you start a run.
