DiabloCast: Episode XIII - Get Your PhD In Battlenet

  • #1
    Hey guys, episode 13 is here, and this time Force and I are completely Dragonless. This time around we talk a bit about the brand new SteelSeries gear and do a lot of Battle.net 2.0 speculation. If you missed the twelfth episode, you can check it out here. Otherwise, the thirteenth episode covered the following topics:

    less topics, less people and still an hour :), and just as awesome. The fraction of a second in arena will win and lose matches so i suggest getting on it.

    Thanks Caniroth for the awesome sig!

    Again, sound's clipping a bit, better this time, but still :\ We can up the sound anyway, so don't worry about recording at lower volume.
    If you have srs bzns to conduct with me, better send a private message.

    do you really believe there will be no spambots or so in diablo 3?

    I always listen to the podcasts but never made an account on these forums, but i thought of something and want to share it.

    I think force was right on the auction house, there will be too much stuff. I mean think of how many combinations and permutations of just a short sword we had in D2. Sword of the bat, Sword of the bear, Sword of a bat and a bear...
    I bet there were close to a thousand combinations per item.

    Imagine going threw auction house menus with thousands of the same item and saying something like "Well this sword has mana steal and fire damage, while this one has +2 to critical hit and ..." Thats just not fun, at least for me.

    Maybe they should do something like, have the auction house only sell blank swords and the crafting supplies to make it w/e you want it to be. That way you can make the sword however you want it to be and never have to make sacrifices and those lame decisions between abilities. The house can still be used for unique items like gems, runes, set items and unique armor/weapons.

    Just my 2 cents.

    hi, i have a Q about the townportal, it was a while you guys talked about it but i wanted to look it up before i wrote anything.will they remove the townportal or will they try and fix it by adding something els, because i can understand that townportal was a easy way to complete the harder parts in hell?, but then again if another hero wanted to join it was really simple just to open a townportal.

    I know that the server and game layout wont be the same, have they fixed it by maybe when a person joins he gets to where the "group" is?.

    maybe it's a stupid Q,just want to know :P

    There are no spambots in WoW and SC2.

    Although there are people who *manually* spam advertisements for selling gold.

    There will be no town portals, but waypoints are still in. Oh and dungeons now have both an entrance and an exit in order to alleviate the tediousness of backtracking them once they're cleared, so that won't be an issue because of the fact that TP's are gone.

    As far as "grouping up" goes I'm assuming it still works like in the clip named gameplay trailer from eu.blizzard.com/diablo3/media, which is just like you asked (new guy enters the game where the group is at). I recommend watching the video if you haven't already because it's 20 minutes of commentated Diablo awesomeness.

    One of the most interesting DiabloCast so far, you discussed very interesting topics there. Good job, you managed to make something worth while without a lot of actual news or information to discuss.
