Why do you guys keep on reminding all this annoying stuff? It wasnt fun, its not nostalgic. Stop posting this crap.
Some of it was annoying. Enrage timers, those sucked. Like, don't apply an enrage timer if I don't know long I have before getting one-shot. I remember when legendary and set items didn't have a beam...wasn't annoying, but you gotta admit...seeing a beam is pretty friggin nice. Even if it's a crappy legendary or set or a just key, seeing a beam is awesome and I'm glad those items do that.
Then again, I do miss when Reflect Damage was an always-on buff for bad guys. I do kinda sorta miss Invulnerable Minions, they were really hard, but they definitely encouraged people to use more single-target skills to ace a rare champion fast to get rid of his guards. Slayerviper mentioned sword and board for Barbs, that'll most likely be coming back after Loot 2.0 and the expansion both help Shields become way more viable.
When I first got Disintegrate - Convergence, and I was in the Keep Depths and I laughed like a maniac for a good half hour.
I remember when I got Chaos Nexus for the first time, and it spawned like 8 or 9 tendrils off my Wizard...instantly became my favorite Disintegrate rune...though I absolutely want to find good uses for the others, love Disintegrate.
I remember when Runes were going to be tiered/have Ranks and be similar to gems
I remember having my snake/bat/pig follower scroll thing, picking up all my gold and then Blizz decided to remove it to make pickup radius more beneficial...
I remember when i used to see a lot more dfans mods/news guys/wiki people around these forums prerelease (Ophion, PhrozenDragon, Don_guilletine, ScyberDragon, Sixen etc) - these guys helped get me really excited for D3 everyday when I was but a lurker in these parts..
