    posted a message on A Serious Discussion About Gameplay
    As far as channelling spells go, for a game like diablo I much more like the way Blizzard worked in d2 then it does in WoW. (Cast a spell and wait for it to run out while able to do other stuff, opposed to cast a spell and wait for it to run out without being able to do other stuff).

    I don't think cooldowns are needed in a game like d2, finding a sort of rotation between your skills to be mana efficient was even needed without cooldown in d2, I don't see why we can't hold on to this system

    Quote from name="Sin Skin" »
    Even when every skill is useful, I bet people still stick to few skills that can do the work same as well as other skills would. Why bother spamming around with 10 different skills when 1 can do the job?

    Considering Blizzard said they'd like for us to be able to use more skills, want to add a little more difficulty level to make the difference between a "great" and "good" player, I doubt you'll get the trick done with just one i-win-button

    posted a message on Let's Discuss Towns/Dungeons
    As some people said before me, I can't really see the point of massive cities. I for one am not all too fussed to run around in an almost complete NPC town, running from one side to another to accept a quest or find this certain vendor. Remember, we'll only have a few people in each game so can't fill all this space and put it to use, so that being said I like the approach of keeping everything as small and compact as possible, like we saw in the previous games.
    On dungeons I do hope we get to see some bigger ones, and some that hold chests at the end...but let's not exagerate on this either, getting lost in some extreme dungeon with the same design all the time doesn't really inspire me

    I think this will be taken care of in Diablo 3. It's safe to say that more skills will be used then in D2:LOD per character, and that balancing/respeccing will come into play aswel. So normally yes, i'm thinking "every" skill will have its use, even the starting ones

    I agree that this would surely add something to the game, adding an auction house in the diablo universe in some way or another just wont do. We need to have our classic "old school" trading system but have it worked out in a better way...(no more dropping items behind an object, runnig over to the other side to get it back :P)

    posted a message on Which WoW Features Would Work In D3?
    Quote from "Zogar" »
    I still find it funny how so many die hard Diablo and WoW fans are at each other's throats when both games are so similar to each other. I got into WoW to satisfy my DII cravings, and it's worked for the most part (until DIII that is). WoW is essentially a bigger version of DII with slower gameplay...

    Anyway, back to the subject matter - I would like to see these WoW features in DIII whether it ends up being an MMO or not:
    • The ability to re-spec your character in terms of talents, skills, etc. Choices in the game should not be set in stone, especially if it's an RPG style game that takes up a lot of time. Diablo II could get away with this to some extent because leveling up was fairly easy. However, nothing's worse than getting far in a game and realizing you have to start over from scratch based on choices you made when you were green.
    • Mounts. Since DIII is likely to have a much larger world (even low-brow RPGs these days have worlds far more massive than the ones we've seen in the Diablo games), we're going to need quicker ways of traveling. With the dark visual style of these games, mounts could look really cool as well.
    • 3D graphics and customizable camera angles. This goes without saying.
    • PVP rewards in the form of weapons, gear, etc.
    • Customizable character appearances. This is one aspect I hope is even better than WoW.
    • Professions. Whether it's blacksmithing, enchanting, fishing, or whatever, this is another feature I'd like to see, and done even better than how it's done in WoW.
    • Faction sides and enemy players. Like the horde and alliance in WoW, players should be able to choose a separate paths. Not everyone wants to be a righteous hero out to rid the world of evil.
    • Hero classes. This feature won't be in WoW until the next expansion, but it's a great idea, and is what veteran players (that don't feel like leveling up from scratch again) would want. Like WoW, I'd also like to see new spells and abilities each expansion as well.
    • Above all else, an online experience that's safe and free from cheaters, dupers, hackers, and hooligans. This would be hard to pull off if DIII isn't a Pay to Play MMO, but if that's what it takes, sign me up.

    No offence meant, but I really think diablo isnt the kind of game you're looking for. All the above stated is why many diablo fans "dislike" WoW compared to our beloved diablo series, PvP rewards, Mounts, Factions, Hero classes...god i hope they leave them out :rolleyes:

    Interesting question. I'm also hoping that Blizzard is able to take the skill level to a whole new level, but i'm kind of hoping this is even more the case in PvP then in PvM. Obviously they wont do it by adding tanks, healers, etc etc cause that would completely destroy diablo, but what they will do...i don't know for now. Ill patiently keep waiting :D

    Quote from "Kenelm" »

    But as we saw the Barbarian jump across the collapsed part, we can be sure that other classes will have skills to help them come across those things. While this isn't a problem for a Barbarian, we can assume that other classes will have to take an another way to get to the other side. It would even be funny if some players could get on the other side while other couldn't, splitting the group in two... Increased challenge...
    .

    Interesting, but the barb could also just jump past, pop a town portal and like that transfer the other characters across...which would kind of ruin this challenge.

    Also i really hope characters cant fall to death of objects, would only give more complications then it would add fun/challenge. Would only get frustrating after teleporting into the abyss, leap, whirlwind, etc etc...

    Quote from "Ranim" »
    A first generation Nephalem (not original first gen but a first born after the world stone collapse) could be the replacement, since the worldstone was imbued with a power to weaken them and it's now gone, a first generation could have quite a lot of power.

    Might be spot on!

    Somtimes it could seem like that. I think he's thinking that having all of those gems would fill up your inventory super fast.

    I'm guessing, they having figured out exactly how they are going to do it yet. You notice : He never picked up any runes/gems dropped in the demo.

    The easy thing would be to make them all stackable

    seems like the best way to solve this...

    instead of an auction house, i think they should insert "trading games" which would be just games like we saw in older diablo, but now standard games made on battle net. The constant wuw/wug spam is way too funny to eliminate

    Quote from "Equinox" »
    I don't like MF. Turns the game into an item-hunt instead of a slash-fest.

    I think its good that you can actually do both, have your MF gear for when you want to go farming, and you're hack and slash gear for when there's killing to be done

    posted a message on Magic Find (MF) and D3
    Hey everybody,

    I currently havn't seen any posts, comments, or remarks made about this subject so I tought i'd start this threat about it.

    As far as I know, nothing has been said about MF at the convention, so at this moment we don't even know if it's even in the game (correct me if i'm wrong!).

    Personally I love what Blizzard did with the MF in d2, altough I think it needs some decent tweaking. For example, having only the sorc using to the fullest, has to change. All chars should be able to make the choice of having an MF build that allows them to farm bosses just as fast and entertaining as any other class.

    Any toughts?

    posted a message on About the last group of heroes
    Quote from "PhrozenDragon" »
    We must get to meet at least one of the heroes from D2, that should be mandatory. I mean, standing face to face with probably one of the most powerful mortals ever would be great, something we've never gotten to do in either of the Diablo games. With Blizzard's increased focus on character-driven story, I hope this happens.

    As what really happened to them, I don't know. We don't know whether their lands, people, organizations and traditions survived or are even "remembered" in D3.

    This is a very intersting theory, and it would definitly be a really nice twist in the diablo story. It's also perfectly explainable by the lore, altough I think some people might actually have problems killing off their old chars :D

    Quote from "Qvark" »
    I think she is just having some vision (not just the future), and Tyreal destroying the worldstone is probably the cause for everything that's going to happen, therefore she sees it.

    I'm going with that theory, considering d2 does have an open end, with Cain mentioning that he hopes that destroying the worldstone is the smartest thing Tyrael can do, and that nothing bad will happen from it.

    Probably will be a tree that contains mostly Warcries in d3. I'm uncertain about the amount of "trees" but if they really are sticking to just 5 classes, there might a big chance of them increasing these trees or paths to choose in one way or another (combining for example amazon and assassin)
