Given there is still a limit on some items once all the copies are out no one has a chance to get one, and with items breaking less that chance is even lessened. 5 copies of an item is still 5 copies, they just last longer. Once those 5 copies are out, until one breaks there won't be a new one. This change again restricts the opportunity to acquire unique gear.
I think you misunderstand. There is no set limit anymore. Just like Cotillion said in the post I linked, unique items instead have a set percentage chance to appear on an NPC on each spawn. So you can forget about old knowledge that "there can be only 3 crystal axes out" and similar. That does not apply anymore.

Also, when an Army like this is triggered by wizards, all items save. So, if you bought something on AH, it will glow for you no matter what. :-)

Thanks for the clarification. I misunderstood when the change was implemented. This certainly makes things a lot more palatable.

there can be only 3 crystal axes out
Wow. Now it will be only worth under 100 plats instead of the 1-3k I see it go for on AH at times.

The upside, many can now find crystal axes. :)

This was a change made last Mars, nothing will change now regarding item distribution.

Good change!

I told you I am the new Poe; I sold my soul to the radio
I steal your heart in the shadows; Don't come too close
I just ghost

Hope you're right because :
(...) an unusual double-bladed battleaxe, a holy crystal axe, (...) fail to glow briefly.

I wonder, the changes to make amulets and rings and boots being able to break, was it intended to make regular magical items worse? Or was it targeted only at imbued ones? Because rare items such as blood-stone medallion is decidedly worse now.

Once the Army is triggered, things get special treatment. Not before, though ...

Blood-stone medallion, black enscrolled amulet, glittering ruby amulet, dark amulet of the storm, shiny silver ring, clear silver ring, thin gold ring, ruby-eyed snake ring, black-gem ring, etc. Maybe even ioun stones are affected when you hold them?

After reading some, you should alredy have known that such side effects were not considered before the implementation. The idea was to weaken imbuements with not much regard to how it my affect other aspects of the game.
