Seems like there has been a lot more dissappointment over the news of the SC thing and the skill point thing in diablo this Blizzcon rather than excitement.
I myself have decided to stop following the progress of Starcraft due to this news.
I am still in it for D3 but there are valid concerns regarding the low polygon counts in the characters. Think about it. In 1 - 2 years when its released those graphics are going to be ancient (They are already outdated.
I have faith in Blizz but I have a little less after that SC news.

Presumably, clicking anywhere with the left button will get you there but what of the right one?, because its clearly won't change your camera angel.
Right mouse button is also mapped to skills.

From Thasdor's post http://www.diablofans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15277Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Thasador reporting in from Blizzcon in Anaheim, CA.
Playing the demo version of Diablo III, right off the bat I noticed something familiar. Hot key #1-6 on your key board are reserved for spells/skills casting. Much like the free online RPG game 2moons, you are able to cast a spell with a quick touch of any of the designated hotkey space.
Yes I am very petty and came back here just to say, lol Dimebog was wrong, blah, blah, blah, etc.

Man they need to throw some clothes on those witch doctors. Looks like something you would see on the discovery channel.Posted in: News & Announcements

This is going to turn into the same type of thread as Dimebog had going with whether or not the hotbar skills took and extra click or not to use (press the hotkey, aim the cursor, click the mouse). I tried looking for an interview or blue post that explicitly said it is autopickup but could not find one.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
To some people(me included) it is obviously on autopick up (yes you can click it to pick it up too) but to other people it doesn't look the same. We will just have to wait and see.

Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote fromI'm sure someone has already posted something similar to this, but here's my short and simple idea:
Instead of constantly having to click on gold piles, players should be able to walk over them and collect as they move. Similarly to the way health is gained in D3 now.
I honestly thought this was a joke thread. And then I saw response after response with people not knowing the answer. This had been verified already and demonstrated in the Gameplay multiple times.
GOLD IS AUTO-PICKUP

So I disagree with you on all 3 points.
Thanks for the feedback. I am sure you are not alone in your disgust of Sacred.
One more thing I found out about Sacred 2. If you get the special edition of the game you get a little imp guy that you can call with the Z button and he basically lugs around your entire stash chest. So when he comes up you can dump stuff in your stash from anywhere in the game.
Some people would hate that as well but I wouldn't mind it seeing as sacred does not have town portals and the map is huge (Waypoints are scattered pretty far).
My only beef is they make you buy the special edition to get that, as well as the high def texture pack.
I guess I am more of a casual player when it comes to Diablo(only played online a couple times and never bothered trying to beat hell)

Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote fromThere is no point in seperating the stashes by character if they all have access to eachother's stashes all the time. It just makes it tedious to find things. Therefore, it should just be one big shared stash...no need for the character names 'option box'. Maybe to reduce space problems they have tabs that you can rename to keep it organized...you could make a 'sets' tab, 'uniques' tab...or 'helmets' tab, 'boots' tab...however you would want to organize it.
Yeah, this is a cool idea.
Sacred 2's stash is pretty nice. There is your personal stash(which is huge) and then at the top there is another tab for the shared stash(same size). All characters on your account can view the shared stash. But I like the idea of being able to customize it with more tabs.

So I have been fooling around with the Sacred 2 demo that was just released(german only right now) and I am very impressed with it.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
You can get it here
Edit: They just released the US demo. So you can find it on Gamershell , filefront, etc.
It definitely has a few things that could be implemented in D3.
1. The automatic gold pick up is an awesome idea in D3 but sacred 2 has a neat function as well. By pressing a single button you can pick up everything around you immediately. When the button is pressed a circle flashes briefly around you highlighting the range of the pick up and everything around you is deposited into your inventory. This has been a huge time saver so far.
It can also be customized to ignore normal/broken items and just pick up magic, unique, or gold.
2. Combat is pretty nice too. Now in diablo 2 you could click and hold down the mouse to keep attacking a single enemy but when they enemy died you had to click on the next enemy to attack again. In S2 you can just hold down the mouse and it will automatically attack the next enemy under your mouse cursor. Very nice and a lot less clicking.
3. This one is a little more far fetched. When you are not at a merchant in S2 you can still sell Items by Ctrl+left clicking an item in your inventory but you will only get half the gold you would get if you sold it at a merchant. I doubt this would make sense with D3 but I found it interesting none the less.
What do you think?
