    Quote from Molster

    Beta is not NA only... the servers are NA only.. the article is wrong. We have already got people from EU playing from opt-in

    That doesn't seem very professional on Blizzard's part. Just inviting EU as the only non-NA region.
    This whole beta just doesn't seem ready, nor does D3.

    posted a message on Incentive For Full Clear Loot Runs
    Quote from Savages

    Have they stated that Skeleton King is intentionally designed in Diablo III to drop 1 rare on the first kill?

    Here's my thought process... Yes, I know that he is currently dropping one rare item every FIRST KILL, but remember this is BETA. It is created for BETA purposes.

    Example: perhaps they did this intentionally as an incentive for people to create and play through ALL of the classes to test them out to find bugs and also share them via stream instead of doing item runs on the same character all beta...

    I strongly think this is simply for beta testing.
    Imagine having 100% drop rate of any unique item in all difficulty (inferno)

    posted a message on Incentive For Full Clear Loot Runs
    One way to encourage full clear dungeon run is to only let bosses in Inferno difficulty to spawn once 3 sub bosses have been killed.
    This allows the user to clear 90% of the dungeon as each sub bosses are spread around the map, could be east west south. And since bypassing mob is going to be extremely hard in inferno difficulty, we have no choice but to kill majority of them to avoid facing death.
    repeat this for each other sides and then head towards main boss.

    Even if you had a main tanker running through the mob, you still eventually have to clear all mobs since they will follow you till wherever you go. This is perfectly fine, which is called "mobbing" a great way to kill group of monsters using aoe.
    But the incentive is there, if you want to get the best drop, then clear 3 sub bosses or however there many be.
    Which sort of restricts the number of ppl killing the "main" boss drastically. hence reducing the number of epic lewt in game.

    this system exists in many other rpg games already and works great to keep players engage in party, trying to work within a certain time.
    (strategy can come in.. such as 2, 2 split trying to kill 2 sub boss at the same time or etc) This is more like an "instance". where you have to co-ordinate with your party how your going to get things done in the shortest amount of time. Perhaps 2 people can go west, 2 ppl go east and they can regroup and go south back to north.

    I am sure getting to the main boss in inferno will be extremely difficult especially without spam teleportation and the ability of monsters being able to freeze you, stun you, root you and all this time,, they have much faster run speed than you so you can't out run them.

    Quote from zerg4hire

    Again, "CD-KEYS" won't exist due to people trying to sell them on ebay.
    What I think will happen is, Blizzard will ask DFans for maybe 10 ~ 15 Bnet account, and they will have games added to it.
    To be honest, Blizzard learned their mistake from Starcraft 2.

    I also expect a sticky thread with a list of Dfans' email sent to Blizzard to have games added, so that 80% of them are not DiabloFans Moderator.
    ( only 1 or 2 should be given to the moderators who'll be posting up guides, reviews, thoughts and stream capability.
    Otherwise, these keys will be misused and to their own selfishness. Which can't happen within a growing community like Dfans, where trust is everything )

    Gl on however you decide to manage the Beta access
    Most moderators/site administrators and staff get BETA access so why the hell do you need a damn assurence that they won't steal them? I presume that you will get an explanation of how the process actually works from one of the moderators in a few minutes...

    Do you realize how wrong your assumption is.
    Moderators and site administrators will not get a beta access from Blizzard.
    They are decided among the Diablo fan staff on who is most likely to be able to contribute to the community.
    By offering constant update with skills, acts, and contents etc...

    Tossing Beta key as if this is a loose change is a wrong conception if thats what your thinking.
    Not everyone can be happy, and certainly that is the same case with moderators.

    *All of us search for the "special" dungeon. It may possibly glow in reddish color.
    Once we find the dungeon, we gather up and enter

    If the dungeon does not exist, we exit and create a new game.

    Lets hope there are many ways to enter " pvp arena"
    Not just through queued quick match but, maybe within the game of PvE World.
    We can pay a fee and enter a colluseum like place where we can test our builds
    Which is different than the PvE world because all the skills are adjusted differently for PvP.

    It would be nearly impossible to find builds for PvP if everyone is trying to kill you in a quick match.

    posted a message on Diablo 3 Followers Mechanics
    Quote from Jackzor

    Really? You make all those assumptions based on a follower system designed for new players? Of course you're not going to find it useful. Its essentially a tutorial. That doesn't mean it has no place in the game.


    Blizzard has spent 5~6 months recording the voices, creating a story line, creating a 3D model, animating, creating skills, animating skills, balancing the skills. Do you really think we need a complex system as this to get people to join a "multi-player" game?

    If they wanted to make a tutorial, they would've made a better tutorial alright?
    There are tons of better ways to make a tutorial and implement it in the game that would "ALWAYS" be useful. Meaning a small tip video or words from the townspeople saying "Join forces with your fellow fighters ! You put yourself in danger by fighting alone !"

    Having all this work and system done just so that they'll be completely out of the content (once we are lvl 60) is what makes it a huge waste of time on blizzard's part.
    They could have used their time more efficiently and effectively by creating a more "get to the point" tutorial that encourages people to play co-op.

    These followers are getting their own story line, lol....
    Little too much for a tutorial? It makes you wonder these followers are almost complex enough to be their own class themselves...
    Too much work done for too little benefit.

    posted a message on Diablo 3 Followers Mechanics
    No matter how much your in love with Blizzard.
    This follower system is a big waste of time in both consumer and developers' end.
    We don't need an entire system that becomes useless, just so it "encourages" people to play "co-op".
    Anyone sense an irony here? to play with Followers, we have to make a passworded game.
    But yet, they want us to start playing with real people?

    In addition, god knows how many times blizzard "iterated" through this follower system.
    My guess is that it took them 5~6 months just to get this thing implemented...

    Could've gone to design a better 5th class and name it better than a " Demon " Hunter...

    Way to go Blizzard

    On the side note, what is going on with this "too much action at once" on the screen.
    We are not 5 years old who only have attention span of keeping one skill at a time. Most of us have played D2, and the sheer number of action that goes on with 8 man game is not all that spectacular. Having 4 players + 4 mercs is completetly fine.
    Even in some MMO, 100 vs 100 was perfectly fine. It doesn't mean you are stacking 100 players into one screen, but just the possibility of interacting with other players are always open.

    Step it up please Blizzard, we're in 21st century here.

    posted a message on Diablo 3 Followers Mechanics
    Bashiok just posted on battle.net forum that Followers are only to encourage people in co-op play.
    He also said that Followers become useless after normal difficulty, and they will do little to no damage and die in 1 shot.
    I..... just don't know what to say about that...

    All this effort and work, involved in animation, dialogue and story just for normal? and not to mention that you can't use them while you play in co-op?
    I'm going to be playing with 3 of my other friends, so I won't be using mercs at all

    Kinda goes to show that Blizzard's reasoning is not always the best... atleast from my perspective.
    If your going to devote an entire team to think about follower system and to go about designing them and animatining each skill and every movement... and to throw them out after normal difficulty?

    Wow.... fuking great.
    I wonder if we could've got this game 1 year earlier if they didnt have this.

    For those who say Blizzard releases game late because its justified for the high quality.
    Lol, laugh your ass right now. This has surely proven thats not the case.

    Because I'm extremely worried that no matter how good the game play might be.... you still can't have shitty graphic like that we saw today in 21st century gaming industry.
    There are millions of non-hardcore players who've never played diablo 2 in their life time. And for them, Diablo 3 may look very dull and less attractive...

    Quote from zerg4hire

    Something tells me this video was prepared for Blizzcon.

    wow... do you realize how wrong you are in that statement? Blizzard has already on numerous occasions stated that they are going to reveal every game system that is left to be announced in the game before the external beta testing begin. And as we were told on May 9th the Diablo 3 beta is to launch somewhere in Q3 2011 (Q3 = July - September).

    Explain to me how they can save this for Blizzcon and at the same time announce the follower system before beta begins...

    You make me confused :/

    On topic: I think I'm gonna start playing the barbarian and even though The Enchantress or Scoundrel would fit and make a possible good combination I figure why not have another more "tank-ish" follower, known as the Templar by my side?! :)

    Hmm.... Well it all depends when the "BETA" is...
    What if beta doesn't start before Blizzcon?

    And also, if Blizzard wanted to release the video, it would be either on their main site or on their youtube channel.
    Not on Force's channel. So this leads to my speculation that the video we see right now wasn't meant to be released right now.... Who leaked it? was it one of blizzards employee? where was this video first posted?

    Blizzard and their obsession for Blizzcon.... really pisses me off.
    Puts everything one step behind just because they have to prepare speech, video, presentations for audience.

    This could be more efficient if they just dedicate their time into creating a diablo universe youtube channel, just like what Black ops did. Got millions of views in one day for their multiplayer footage.

    Spending time out of development to make 30 thousand nerds happy in blizzcon...... Not so smart.

    Hm.... shit just got reals.

    I guess mercs will play a big role during MF runs.
    You can either have 2 Templars with high defence to tank the damage from Diablo,
    and have 2 ranged mercs dealing damage with the rest of the team.
    Perhaps team of 4 wizards? or 4 Demon Hunter
    [With Full on damage gear with very minimal defense gear as they are highly unlikely to engage directly]
    Sort of defeats the purpose of having meele class? because they have to worry about having proper defence + attack

    This is going to be fun

    God knows how long it will take to get Trading system in the game.
    It took them 4 years to just put 5 characters with skill runes...

    I doubt replay system will be in it, this is a whole new coding, and to iterate them to perfection is another good few months.

    posted a message on DiabloFans and their Ads
    So.... what's up with ads on the main page?
    I'm not sure whose behind the cash flow from clicking this ad, but whoever is responsible should remove it asap.
    How often do you see blogs/websites that have ads staring right at the person, visiting the site for the first time.

    Honestly, my very own initial imperssion was... "Great... another money banking site."
    My point is, you never want to welcome a first-time visitor with an Ad that is blatantly obvious.

    If the site owner's moral is correct, he should value the growth of Diablo community more than the money itself.
    Not the other way around, otherwise this community won't get very far as far as Diablo 3 is concered [Its quite obvious hes already trying to turn this website into a cash flow] - Makes me want to cry indeed.

    If I was in his shoes, I'd shut down all ads and keep it clean as possible for the new comers and those who are already a daily poster on diablofans. I don't care if theres ads or not, because I dont click on them. But does it annoy me? Yes.
    Will it attract newcommers? probably not when the site is welcoming you with ads.
    Does the site look professional and friendly? From the initial impression, most unlikely.


    You can stick up to support the owner, but in reality, my point something of an important concern. I'm not completely against this site making money, but not like this. Not putting ads on the main page for everyone to see.
    You gotta be some moron to have guts to stick ads up like that. Do it in a calm manner and something that won't be too eye appealing. If you've watched the success of facebook through the movie "The social network" putting ads on your site is a big "No-No". You can decide to make $2000 or 2billion, its your call.

    I'm writing this because I love this website, and the community. We all love diablo games, and soon or later more people will join us. This is all for the better of them and you, whoever the owner is.

    P.S - Before you reply to this thread, do me a favor, go click homepage and take a good look at how it's structured. And then... reply.

    We are in 21st century guys.
    The notion of being satisfied with the most basic feature in Battle.net 2.0 quite surprises me.
    Why would Blizzard even bother to call it a Battle.net 2.0 when it doesn't achieve any more than what the 1.0 did?

    On top of that, the custom game system is completely out of whack. You don't know whose playing what, and for the most part you have to wait in lobby hoping someone clicks the same game, as suppose to there being a list of games waiting to be played. (People can join faster, more importantly newer maps can be played by more players) What bothers me is Battle.net 1.0 had it all right, and it didn't need any change.

    If I was in a Battle.net 2.0 design team, I would have left the custom game system the same. It was good as it was, you really can't improve beyond that other than minor tweaks. But Bnet 2.0 really went back in time and made playing any custom games almost impossible. [I don't enjoy it, its pain in the ass to find a good game to play]

    Secondly, achievements are great but is it really something that most people care about? Sure, it's cool for the first time and beyond that, no one really cares. [It does not suffice to grant an upgrade from 1.0 to 2.0]

    The only thing in Battle.net 2.0 that gives me "wow" factor is the implementation of Auto-matching. This is the only "Good" part of Battle.net 2.0.

    It's obvious that Battle.net 2.0 needs some tweaking to be done before Diablo 3 is released. There is no way that Jay Wilson and his team will use a "rushed-Battle.net 2.0 system that is on constant patch" in the mostly anticipated game of the decade. No way.... Jay saw it with his own eyes the failure that SC2 went through, not again.

    After all, Battle.net 2.0 was rushed and for that reason, they couldn't implement a working chat channel couple months after the release. How do you expect anything to work properly when they work in a such rushing manner, without much iteration. According to Jay Wilson and his philosophy of iterating multiple times to achieve the best UI, theres no way he would've left Battle.net 2.0 as it is right now. not even close to what it is.... no way...

    Dustin Bowder needs to be fired. (Not joking at all)

    Quote from zerg4hire

    There are no "counters" in diablo.
    Meaning Barb > Wizard, or Monk > Demon Hunter doesn't exist, otherwise they make up for a very very... bad game
    Same reason why there is no healing class. Every hero is a kick ass and the best they can be.

    3 vs 3 will not necessarily come down to class but more of a strategy based. Although, mixing classes are good at times, it can also hurt you in some ways. We can't say anything about how 3 v 3 is going to work but all I know is... it will be VERY gear dependent. No matter what combination of class you have, one demon Hunter could potentially destroy the entire team if he has amazing gear compared to his enemies.

    I don't think there is going to be much strategy involved in 3 vs 3, especially when each round is going to end under 30 seconds, or 1 minute at most. It will be mostly be kill first or lose.
    So maximum damage output rather than high defense.

    This is my opinion.

    You are contradicting your self. Strategy is a big part in any competitive game on the surface it just looks like kill first or lose. Kill order, burn down with burst damage, or rotate each classes stuns all could be used depending on your teams builds vs the opponents team. If you look at game play their will be strong map control strategy bc of the orbs, keeping you opponents away form the orbs will be vital to a win when the battle does last that long. Gear will give more health, along with more damage, and we can not forget that the 3v3 ranked matches will be balanced. Battles will start to last longer than 30 sec. Gear does not = skill knowing how to play a class is more important (just saying). This is all just based on what i have seen and under stand this will change. Thank you for your input it is something to think about!

    I am not contradicting myself, I said strategy will be more important as suppose to class combinations. However, how many strategies will there be? Not very many. Why? The mechanics are quite simple, there are no healers, no buffs, no debuffs.

    The most popular strategy will probably be "ganking". Now this is the most rudimentary strategy one team can pull off.
    As seen in the video from Blizzcon 2010 PvP Arena, a proper gank can kill a Wizard in matter of seconds. And the rest of the team just falls apart since its 2vs3.

    What other viable strategy do you see? when people will be dying left and right in seconds. Think of Diablo 2 characters bounded inside an Arena. I think you get the picture if you imagine what that would look like.

    posted a message on Things that concern me about D3
    My major concern is Battle net 2.0 and how its going to work with Diablo 3.
    If you've seen some of the features from Battle net 2.0 in SC2, its completely and utterly crap.
    You can't expect any kind of community to grow from such horrible system. I am not specifically targeting the lack of sophisticated Chat channels, but in general the custom game system is out of the flow.

    The entire D3 is based on custom games, since there are no dedicated servers and etc. I am pretty sure Jay Wilson and his team has some creative idea to make it easier to find/search games. I feel bad for Jay since Dustin Bowder really fuked up SC2 and the entire Battle net 2.0

    I just sincerely hope Blizzard wakes up and implement some neat features... They seem to be going back in time as far as Battle net is concerned. Other gaming companies put heavy emphasis on online interactions and community but I am unsure why Blizzard has not yet to achieve that.

    It's no wonder why no body talks about Battle.net 2.0 being the greatest invention. It's utter crap.

    I would hate to see another Diablo... in Diablo games....
    It's been done for the past 2 sequel, and I doubt Blizzard will make Diablo the ending of D3.
    Sure, he'll be back and we'll slaughter him like before, but I'd imagine something more powerful awaiting us.

    posted a message on Act 4 Corrupted Tyrael End Boss
    Quote from DesmondTiny

    The idea of Tyrael corrupt is kinda lame....Tyrael fought for humanitys survival. No way he would turn it around and try and kill us. Tyreal is beyond corruption. I dont think there has been any corrupt angel. Only a fallen angel Izual who wanted power. Inarius only became insane when he thought he was god on his little world. If tyrael became corrupt I probably would not touch another blizzard game ever.

    I'll tell you what's lame. Ending the game by killing Diablo for the 3 consecutive series.
    Diablo 1, Diablo 2, and now Diablo 3? Hahaha, I'm sure most will agree that this is a worst ending possible and it is highly unlikely to happen.

    As much as you don't like twist ending, it's probably what Blizzard has already planned for us.
    I don't see the death of Diablo being a viable ending to Diablo 3. It will probably be the most boring game storyline known to humanity in 21st century. Every story has a twist, and my theory is just a speculation of what that twist might be.

    I believe Blizzard is creative, and has captured some imaginative aspects between the world of Hell and Heaven.
    What that could be? probably Heaven turning away from us? why not?

    Act 3 is inside that fortress, it's not tropical.

    What is exactly Bastion or whatever you guys call it?

    I only have idea of what Act 1 and Act 2 will look like. But clueless to what Act 3 can possibly look like.
    Does act 3 resemble any sign of Hell or appearance of Diablo ?

    posted a message on Resistances and total skill points?
    Quote from Thander

    Quote from SFJake

    I thought the trees were no more, and now its just one big tree?

    Yes as far as we know, the basic skill tree system is gone. All skills have certain required levels to learn. You can only learn 7 of the skills. Each skill has a cap of 15 or 20. You only get 60 skill points total, but you can distribute your skill points however you want in your 7 skills. Blizzard also said there is some way to respect, but we don't know if it's a full reset or just one skill at a time.

    Max point on each skill range from 2 ~ 5 and there are 3 (tech route) you can take per class. 22 ~ 25 skill per class.
    So that comes out to be 7~8 skill per tech route. (Defensive, passive, offensive) is one example.
    And you can actually learn more than 7 skills. Though, you may only have 7 on a macro key from 1 ~ 7

    posted a message on Act 4 Corrupted Tyrael End Boss
    If you recall screen shots from Blizzard North's Diablo 3 work, there was an image of a town with angels w/ wings as NPC.Now... I don't know how much of the story line was converted over to Blizzard, I am sure some storyline has been changed while leaving some the same.

    I'm leaning towards Act 4 being in Heaven. It will be somewhat of an exciting way to finish the game, as we all know there will be an expansion. Perhaps, Heaven will be threatened by Tyrael, the keeper himself.

    Act 3 - Hell (Dreadlands)
    Act 4 - Heaven

    Expansion Act 5 - Tyrael's Sanctuary [Not sure if this will be in Heaven, but probably near]
    - All monsters in this act are raised by Tyrael the evil himself, which are even stronger than ever.
    The final act Boss Tyrael, who is now fully evil as suppose to half evil half good (from D3 original). The last remaining Evil in the world must come to an end.It has the form of an angel but has both angelic and devilish power that he can both manipulate to his own.

    P.S - The party cap has increased to 6 just to compensate for Tyrael's Power.
    jk :D

    Quote from ScyberDragon

    I think this is why the release still so up in the air. If beta starts and very few issues exist then they can bump up the release date. If all six months are needed, maybe it will be pushed back to early 2012.

    How many issues do you think Blizzard expect us to find with 1 ~ 2 dungeons to play ?
    you have to remember we're not given the entire game to fix or balance, unlike SC2.
    SC2 took a whooping 5 months because they had to fix the "entire" game to meet balance expectations.

    In Diablo 3, they are not going to balance anything. [It would be absurd to do so, as I said we simply dont have time to encounter 100+ different item combinations and not to metion there are 15 gems and 7 runes per each skill and item.]


    That being aside, D3 are going to fix/test the basics.

    - Server stress test(Probably will invite 250,000+ in the end)
    - Battle.net 2.0 integrations
    - User Interface
    - Minor Bugs in the game.
    Such as Movement, item being stuck in salvaging mode etc..

    posted a message on Act 4 Corrupted Tyrael End Boss
    We have good idea of what Act 1 and Act 2 will be like. And as for Act 3, some think its going to be held in a tropical atmosphere but that's just another speculation.

    What I want to talk about is the ending act, the Act 4. From a game developer's point of view, I would hate to end another diablo franchise by killing Diablo. I strongly believe they have changed the story or put a twist to it.

    My own speculation of how and where Act 4 is going to play out.
    (This is just my own idea, if you have your own please feel free to share!)

    Act 4 will start with a cinematic video introduction.
    - The clip is the continuation of what happened after Tyrael throws his sword at the red evil chamber? in Baal's Throne.
    - Tyrael finally thinks this world is free of evil, as he himself was the one to eliminate them and witness with his own eyes.
    - However, little did he know that by destroying the evil chamber, he was vulnerable to being corrupted despite him being wholly good.
    - *Twist* Tyrael is corrupted but not fully. He's inner goodness is still fighting the evil thats inside him. Now he is half evil and half good, hes decisions are immoral at times. He still has access to heaven and hell.
    The world wants us to eliminate Tyrael before he turns completely evil.


    We might have to travel back and forth from hell to heaven in Act 4, to trace down Tyrael's whereabouts and etc...
    Again this is just my own thoughts :D

    I also want to hear your own versions of Act 4

    P.S - I didn't want to include my own version of Act 4 from start to finish. I kept the important part of my speculation. We will obviously kill Diablo in Act 4, but he is probably the one who comes just before Tyrael, as Tyrael > Diablo.

    Quote from ScyberDragon

    Regardless on how long other people think the beta is going to run for, Blizzard has said it will be 6 months.

    I don't think that is the case.
    Jay Wilson quote on quote said "Beta will begin 6 months before the release" in the last Blizzcon.

    Was there any official post on whether the beta is going to last 6 months? I havn't seen one let me know if there is.
    People are still wobbly as to how long beta will be, as of now all we know is it will start 6 months before the release.
    If you take packaging + final fix on bugs and finishing touch.... that's going to take at least 2 months.
    So It's safe to assume the beta will be around 2 ~ 3 months, to compensate for any major error that could occur. Perhaps in the packaging department or the game itself. Always good to leave enough time to work, never want to be under strict schedule. example, release beta -> fix -> packaging. That cannot take 6 months exactly, that should be done well under 4 months and half to 5 months. So beta is most likely going to be a short one 2 ~ 3 months, just to check that everyone can run the game, and no minor bugs or glitches between character movement and UI selections etc...
