    In short: we like that there are different itemization choices, and that players often have to weigh their options when comparing gear in order to be the most efficient, to have the greatest DPS, to find the best loot, etc. We do appreciate the feedback, though!

    Will Invulnerable Minions Ever Return?
    We don’t have any current plans for the Invulnerable affix to rear its head and return. We felt it was a frustrating affix for many players, and that it was out of line with the other affixes, which is why we removed it. In a similar way, we feel that the Reflects Damage affix isn’t quite where we want it to be, which is why we’re looking intomaking some adjustments to the mechanics of how it works, as well as fixing a related bug.

    Best Songs While Playing Diablo?
    It depends greatly on my mood and what hero I'm playing, but lately I find myself playing a lot of Nightwish, Amethystium, E.S. Posthumus, Two Steps from Hell, movie soundtracks (such as the work of James Newton-Howard, Hans Zimmer, and Danny Elfman), and Imagine Dragons when I play Diablo III. :) (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    Hmm.. Wonder what that development time is going into? expansion or PvP. God I really hope it's PvP I've been looking for a reason to come back to this game other than Paragon Levels and the endless loot horde.

    Best music to listen to right now for me is Amon Amarth or something more chill like Sun Kil Moon, especially his newest CD; it's really weird >.

    No Holiday Patch? :(

    The development that is going on elsewhere better be for PvP. I have waited the longest time to start doing PvP in Diablo, and like most Diablo fans, I will be waiting on the internet for an announcement for it like a dog waiting for a treat.

    Happy Holidays to all! :)

    I'm really hoping that the development time will be devoted to PvP!

    While a holiday patch would be mildly amusing, taking any Diablo resources away for "mildly amusing" seems like a bad idea.

    And good riddance to Invulnerable Minions. Hated those guys.

    No Holiday patch? lame. I want santa hat armor dye.
  • #11
    idk at first I was against holiday patches for D3 just because, but I don't think it would ruin anything to let the goblins look like little santas or something small =D

    On SC hots, does anyone know if they took out the warhound ? I was watching replays and someone said it got taken out, which personally it looked wayyy too strong against protoss early on, but then someone else said it is back in, so yea I R CONFUSED

    I really want the bug fix to RD, I seem to run into the bugged minions all the time right now.

    Also interested in the PVP blog, even though I'm not too interested in actually playing PVP.

    I'm not even sure I will watch the curse weekly round up anymore. It's not the same without Pico. I'm not sure why people didn't like her. I'm glad DFans still posts them though, it's still a relevant source of news.
  • #17
    i hope they add some interesting pve event before pvp patch.
  • #18
    I'm curious as to weather or not PvP is the only thing left before the expansion or if thye have other unannounced stuff.

    Also thanks for the chance for a beta key, hopefully If i have no luck here they will give me access for pre-ordering the CE copy already.

    Quiet holiday suits me just fine, everything's so busy this time of year.

    Also, hurray for HotS beta key giveaway! *crosses fingers*

    Excellent, I'll be able to get some uninterrupted play time in over the holidays.

    Three cheers for the HotS beta key - I'd love to see it!
