Not trolling, if you think I can't hit 60 in 2 weeks and clear inferno with 2-3 other Diablo vets you are clearly trolling. 60 in this game is like 80 in Diablo 2, and add the fact with a little bit of grinding you can be 60 at end of Hell so...pretty much guaranteed to be 60 by inferno within a week and give me a week to work out the kinks there and finish it.
More than 3 months for sure.
Even if I'll play just D3 my gaming attitude make it so that I need a long time to reach the end.
I'm an explorer, a collector, feel the urge to try out every class and every skill and so on.
The goal is important but the trip should be the funniest possible.
Shooting for a few weeks. I have 3 days off to play, but with a 2 year old, and at that point a newborn that's going to be a month old, I think I better help the wife a bit. At least she understands (she'll be playing during the down time). I don't think that it has hit me yet that the game that we've all been waiting for for over a decade is finally coming out.
Really, really hard to try and guess something like that with our limited information. On one hand, we have them saying it's hard as hell. On the other hand, it took nowhere near that amount of time to finish Hell in Diablo II, and the things that made something like Hell Unleashed (D2 mod) won't exist, nor will the annoying immunes of Diablo II hell. I'm sure they'll throw some stuff, a lot of stuff actually, at us that we won't be expecting but... If there's not immunes, etc. I don't it taking THAT long. This isn't exactly WoW, where you stand toe to toe with the boss, and hope that some combination of your healers heals and your tanks' mitigation outpacing the bosses' health while your dps beats the enrage timer and doesn't get killed by mechanics. Diablo has always been ALL Mechanics, and people tend to figure that stuff out, and figure out how to beat it. And with millions of players playing it, it will happen fairly fast. I look forward to Inferno being a constant challenge over the years, but I think we'll unravel its basic mysteries before too much time has passed.
Does anyone remember how fast Diablo was killed on classic D2 when it was first released? Not that this is relevant I'm just speculating for general comparison. I do realise that Inferno will be much harder than Hell in Diablo 2.
I picked 1-2 months, but that is a very optimistic pick. There is so many things to factor in:
Do I stick to the class i chose the first day or do I change to another?
Which of my mates are actually going to play D3 and how fast do they level?
Is Inferno really as hard as Blizz claims it to be?
My guess will be that if Inferno is as hard as Blizz claims, a group of 4 skilled players with enough time and a bit of itemluck will clear atleast Act3 within in the first 2 weeks.
