Patch 1.0.3 Unofficial Changes

    It should be exclusive and not everyone should get the wings just as D3 CE. I bet my money that those wings are from MoP CE and the reason why is because Blizzard wants to lure more players to buy it if not for the game itself then for the cosmetic stuff in it. I personally won't bother buying it if had only an achievement and panda banner picture.

    I've never understand the need for everything to be exclusive. I bought the D3 CE but I'd be fine if people could buy the wings for 10$. It's just cosmetic and I don't need to feel like a unique and special snowflake by being the only person in my four player game to have them.

    If I have to buy the MoP CE just to get them, that's another 80$ down the drain.

    Lmao, no. I bought this game because I've patiently waited 11 years to play it because I've been playing since the release of Diablo 1. I am complaining because they were in development for so long, and only now they are removing and balancing. I love Diablo, I love the lore, and I love the style of the game, but I simply cannot accept or condone Blizzards actions on how they are handling

    Seriously? By looking at your posts I would say that you haven't even finished nightmare on Diablo 2... Come on, nightmare/Hell on Diablo 3 are way easier (save for a few packs) than Diablo 2. The really hard stuff only starts at inferno Act 2.


    Let me guess, you play softcore. It took me under 15 hours on hardcore to beat d2 on a ladder reset, still not done with hell on hardcore at around 50 hours on d3( to be fair, part of it was mfing gear for lower characters), either way, d3 is way harder if you play hardcore.


    I will never play Hardcore on this game due to it being only online, and my internet is not stable. I've died quite a few times because I lagged while fighting mobs. I loved Diablo 2 hardcore, but with Diablo 3 my computer and internet just doesn't agree, also I seem to die a lot easier on D3. I am refusing to use the Auction house for the time being, and most of the time I play solo, save for the few times my friends randomly join my game.

    There are too many ways to get backed up into the corner with no escape route, potions are worthless most of the game with the cool-down timer. I've been walled, and then nightmared into a corner and died without even being able to do anything before. I'm not saying that hardcore isn't hard, it actually is and takes a lot more conservative skill.

    My main point is that the game is more frustrating over pleasurable if you are playing to play, and not in it for competition or racing to the top. I've died 14 or so times in 20 minutes on my level 46 Demon hunter while trying to get through act 3 on Nightmare, and I would not say my gear or play-style is outdated, there are just really buffed elites out there.

    I see very few positive updates, but many nerfing, and removing things that were just fine being there. Just because I am not past nightmare doesn't give my opinion any less, or any more effect, I recognize that it will be a lot harder, that's not my point. It's already a difficult game, it already has its time consumption, and it already has its appeal. Fix the bugs, balance the play-style, and leave the game as is.

    It's a cosmetic item - Why should it be exclusive. Besides, no-one is forcing you to buy this - This is what makes me laugh about the whole matter with Blizzards Real Money Auction House/Blizzard Shop etc. - They have a very smart idea, of making money - They simply take sparkly stuff - Put them in a shop and go "You can buy it if you want".

    How is this REMOTELY, POSSIBLY impacting your game of how Blizzard makes more money of it? If anything, if they make more money, they can keep supporting Diablo 3 to become better, no? And that's not a bad thing - Given how well Diablo 3 has sold - Now you can pretty much come up with whatever "counter-argument" you want - But in the end - you are just a "want to be special snowflake" - Not feeling so special anymore. Guess that's what happens when you play a game with oh, you know, MILLIONS of players.

    Why...

    Why do I continually see negative updates for this game? I keep trying to play, and can barely make it past nightmare...

    Really? Nightmare? I played the game straight through Normal, Nightmare, and Hell, died only a few times. In fact, I'd like them to up the difficulty of Nightmare and Hell a bit. The only time I struck a roadblock was mid way through Inferno, so I did a few Azmodan runs, which gave me enough of a boost to start doing Butcher runs. If you're stuck in Nightmare, then Hell is going to burn you.

    Quote from Olden Soul

    It's not that I am not playing right, it's that I don't have the time to sit there and farm for items, I do not like how this game is all about gear, that's important, but it shouldn't the main thing.

    Right, because gear meant so very little in D1 and D2...

    This should have all been done before the release, because the game at release WAS the game to me, now everything being done afterwards is just them removing things.

    Right, because they never ever changed anything in D2 post release. Oh, wait no, they kept on balancing the classes for years after the game was released... I'm quite certain you never played much of D1 or D2.

    @ the difficulty discussion:

    Looking back on my characters the RNG definitely makes things tricky. If I relied on just my own drops on my single character, I would be suffering through nightmare as well for at least the first 2 characters I made. Now if I used the shared stash, I don't think I would suffer that much because I just play the character that works with the gear I find. I started doing that in softcore and I felt overpowered with most characters.

    The exception to this is my HC DH: for some reason she gets amazing drops for herself, and from my friend I play with. She has been using nothing but dropped gear from me or the partner I play with (mostly me) and has phenomenal gear up through mid-NM so far. For example, we killed Diablo on normal and she literally had 6 new items to put on, the 2H bow being the best I'd seen at level 30.

    Anyway, I would say if you're playing a single character, especially a melee character where you need defense too, and solely use the gear you find: yes nightmare is very difficult, so stop picking on the guy that doesn't have supreme luck (and is showing such dedication to not using AH)! As for the AH, you should not have a problem until Inferno.

    The ultimate solution, in my opinion, is to go back and relaunch the game with no AH and no checkpoints. Then maybe we would stop people's constant bitching about "ease". For now, play HC I guess, at least the AH & economy is far better there.

    Why...

    Why do I continually see negative updates for this game? I keep trying to play, and can barely make it past nightmare with soloing and not using Auction house. And they keep making it more difficult and unattractive, and I am a hardcore diablo fan since the beginning. Stop making a more difficult game, more difficult! It's getting tot he point where it isn't even fun anymore just hours spent between working, the girlfriend, and then trying to progress just a little.

    I don't mean to sound negative, but that's all I see coming from you, Blizzard. Stop it.


    What class are you? I was through Hell in the blink of an eye on a monk and a witch doctor. The game only requires any real gearing once inferno hits. Its very simple before then.

    Demon Wings should be a Diablo 3 C.E. addon, since C.E. needs to be more C.E.

    Thats my opinion.

    As much as I don't like the idea, demon wings are most likely part of MoP:CE imo and it will make some people buy it. Well MoP or HotS anyway. :)

    I made it all the way to act 4 hell within the first few days without using the AH. I eventually had a surplus of money and decided to upgrade me 200 dps weapon into 400 dps. I was only a wd and I didn't even know about bears.

    So obviously you aren't playing right or something..


    Obviously you didn't play a melee class. Probably DH I suppose, or maybe Wizard.


    I played a monk and a barb and had no issues whatsoever

    Hope the wings won't make it in via the MoP CE.... would rather be gay to be fairly honest... since i don't plan on playing that game ever again.....and it's diablo... so wings via d3 xpac CE would sound alot more logical to me.

    Do you really think they would add a D3 expansion CE wings that early after the release of the game, lol?

    • SpecialGiftWingsBuff_name - Collectors Edition Buff
    • SpecialGiftWingsBuff_desc - QUAD DAMAGE
    • SpecialGiftWingsBuff_var_stats - (Is Blank)


    What are these special wings? What is that "SpecialGiftWingsBuff_var_stats - (Is Blank)". Do our current CE wings have that code-line? If no, what is it doing on the special gift wings? Can someone compare if they have access to the code? I hope they are not planning on adding stats to future cosmetic items...

    They won't be buffing the stupid wings, so everyone can relax. There is no pay for buffs outside of the RMAH, yet.

    And I believe they will be part of the stupid MOP CE, something I won't be buying. I own the last 4 CE's to WoW, and I backed out at the last minute for the D3 one (something told me I would regret the purchase later) and I can see them throwing this bonus into the game. It wouldn't surprise me if the MOP CE also has in-game wings for within WoW, just to enrage everyone that sees them. Remember, this is not the old Blizzard, it's now a part of a host company that has always specialized in very advanced marketing techniques... or exploitation... take your pick of words. Regardless they make money and get shoutouts on FBN and CNBC all the time.

    Now something they SHOULD be selling in the Pay to Win column - tabs 4 and 5 of the stupid bank. "Get 30 days access to the 4th tab for only 14.99! Big Boy Shuggo approved!" Or the everneeded - "For 15 days you can cancel your auctions before they expire for only 29.99! Be an AH pro!"
