    posted a message on New Sets

    How is stash space a problem with seasons. I save gear on my characters like mules and then delete any excess. When the 2.5.0 stuff comes out almost all my tabs will be empty non-season...

    posted a message on New Sets

    I think it is time to introduce new sets for each class and shake up the playstyles a little bit. The Necromancer pack will be fun but I want to play different builds with the existing classes as well. With the new PTR patch 2.5.0 we are getting an armory and better organization for crafting mats (why gems, grift keys, machines and legendary gems were not included in this system is beyond me) which is fine but the meta as of right now is the same. So the meta shifted a bit in season 9 but it is still mostly the same (M6 DH was the original meta). The balance is great now (Toughness to DPS) classes have options to the push the leaderboards. The playstyle hasn't changed much and I would more of a shift in that. Maybe we will get something after the Necro pack or with. I just want to use other skills to be viable (leaderboard push) and new sets appear the only way to do it.

    posted a message on Upcoming Necromancer Update

    The Rise of the Necromancer pack will be a Band-Aid. There is so much more this game needs to get people coming back more regularly. This year they appear to be trying to keep the interest up. Maybe they are building up something for 2018. The Necromancer is going to be a character with all the same stuff as the other 6 characters. They will add new class specific items and tweak other items and maybe add some other items. That is all this pack is another character and nothing else. I feel like they have made it clear that this is what it is. Oh yea cosmetics...

    posted a message on Conquest: Boss Mode

    Switched between danettas, no skill changes at all. Just remember act 3 has four bosses (I started in act 3 and forgot about Ghom. When you get to the end and kill Maltheal waiting for the achievement and nothing happens). I started from the bonus act and went left. Would have done it the first try but the second try was fine; 17-18 minutes.

    posted a message on 2.4.3 New items and meta

    I ran the build earlier and yes it needs to buff the sentries (It is far behind UE I struggled on a 70 but I am also not 100% familiar with the new rifts but I can easily runs 80s with UE). If Augustine's Pancea is any indication of how much they care to do that...

    M6 paired with the belt and the Bear rune for CA could be big. Most likely plays out well in groups.

    Sales does not reflect a constant revenue stream. WoW for example has generated 10 billion+ in revenue in its lifetime. Overwatch league will get sponsors and competitions and live viewing with ads. There is a revenue stream in advertisements. Diablo has done nothing since RoS. Those sales numbers could skewed as well. For example subscribing to WoW for a year gave subscribers a copy. In China the game is free (microtransactions). Also an expansion is not a full price game and it was never made clear how many of those 30 million were both vanilla and RoS. The point being that 30 million sales figure was never broken down for anyone. It is clear if a game is not generating revenue it is on the back burner. The future of Diablo rests on this Necromancer Pack. If it is adopted by a lot of players then they will release more and that would be a revenue stream. If that stream keeps up the game will get more love. They know WoW is fading and they are going to have to make up that revenue stream. eSports is there chance. A sports league can generate a lot of money if successful. They are obviously preparing for the eventual demise of WoW. Diablo does not fit that model right now. If it is not obvious by the amount of love eSports has received at the previous Blizzcon's then you guys got your hopes for nothing. When you talk about fan base you are bringing home the point. The thing with Diablo is no game in the genre has rivaled it. People will cling and continually get there hopes up and be let down and the fan base will always exist until a game equal/superior to Diablo takes the hype.

    You can disagree all you want and hold on to the idea that eSports are not the future. It has been building the past years. They have been coverage on ESPN etc. The main holdback is more money can be made streaming. Blizzard is going to set a precendent with the Overwatch League. It is time to face the facts man. I was hyped but I am not surprised by Diablo getting little. All there time and effort is going in to eSports. As a guy with the same profile picture as you said

    I won't be attending blizzcon next year as it seems they're making way to big of a deal about esports and less about their games.

    It was clear Blizzard was shifting into eSports. It is the future and they will take the risk. The Overwatch League was a huge announcement. We are seeing the future of gaming. Any game that is not eSports worthy will be on Blizzards back burner. It sucks that the focus is elsewhere but eSports means big money for Blizzard.


    Be happy we got something as it shows Blizzard is still aware of the game. I hope this Necromancer Pack goes well and they release more packs and continue the free content. If the eSports market takes off we may never see another Diablo game (sales figures mean nothing if it doesn't generate a regular revenue stream)

    The announcement is not what I wanted but I am not mad at what we are getting. What I don't like is the Necro pack is coming second half of 2017. The armory and mats tab are coming in 2017. Challenge rifts are not coming until 2017. All major changes to the actual game are so far out. Had they not wasted there time building the original Diablo in the game we could get real upgrades to the game in a reasonable time. Don't get me wrong I have nothing against the original game but it is a 1 play through thing. The mentioned changes are quality of life far more important than nostalgia...


    No one is mad about what we are getting, we are mad about what we are not getting. Necromancer and 2 new zones in about 6 months is not nearly enough.
    I said exactly what you said "The announcement is not what I wanted but I am not mad at what we are getting." It is more than 6 months for the pack. Again I said the Diablo rebuild in Diablo 3 was a waste of time. Some cosmetic items to celebrate the anniversary would have been perfect. Hell they could have made it DLC (5$). TO put there resources into the remake and not into the quality of life changes is the problem with the new content. It is so far out for so little that is the problem.

    What is a devil's fang? I wonder if it has something to do with the Diablo remake inside of the game?

    posted a message on New Class DLC - Necro just the beginning?
    Quote from Sabvrego-next

    I'll be honest -- if they start releasing like 1 class per quarter @ 19.99 -- I'll probably buy them.

    But they need to release something the size of an act at least once per year. (Hopefully for free).

    WHy not do an act for 20 and a class 10?

    If they can release 2-3 new classes a year i would be a happy bunny.


    At the end of the day it would all boil down to price, i am happy to support them as long as they don't take the piss, if i see the necro priced at £29.99 then i am out. 15-20 is what i would find reasonable.

    10 for a new class. 15 pushes it but 20 is out of the question.

    I can't wait. It may not be a full act but the switch to DLC is a good sign we could get a full act as DLC plus other new characters. DLC is great for this game!

    Now I just hope we get a little more balance on the Paragon system!
