    posted a message on Useless stuff all over the place.

    this perfectly sums up the current situation imho, but is that number is really the limit? after so many hours of theorycrafting, i am very sure that number can be at least 6 for each class if a proper balance is applied. sure there will always be a meta, there will be always one "strongest" build but this isnt a big problem. having 6 builds to be able to clear at least GR 70 will do enough. and with all that diversity im sure there will be exciting multiplayer sessions in every season where creativity of interesting comboes will shine. there wont be some few obvious meta that people know before even a new season. seeing meta shapes slowly in every season, creates an excitement factor.. at least player slike me would be way more excited thats what im sure.


    If this was 3 years ago it would be more of a thing. As I stated this game is maintenance mode now, don't expect anything. It took them a long time just to balance LoN and each class sets to somewhat be comparable to each-other... trying to make everything great without causing another ability to over-shine sounds like a big undertaking that a game in its early life cycle would attempt to achieve.

    Don't push ladders and there are many builds that can do a 70 grift. Unfortunately this game is all about grift pushing and para points so... eventually your only going to have 1-2 builds that are the "best". That is the issue since you have a never ending scaling of difficulty most builds will fall short. If you had a cap on difficulties then more builds would be viable. I've always suggested make ladders based on a main ability then you would at least see people trying to push different builds, but nobody seemed to care for it.


    As for rose tinted glasses approach... If this game was like D2 and you only had hell mode, I guarantee all builds would be viable.


    Take it or leave this game will not change drastically anymore its in maintenance mode. If you wanna try other similar games with more builds play PoE or Grim Dawn.

    makes alot more sense, yes.

    So it's 1% of ancients and therefor 0,1% of legendary drops in general. So you need 1000 drops on average for each primal.


    It also means that you need 25k DBs (+50k each crafting mat) on average to get a random primal of the weapontype you're about to upgrade.

    Also on average to get your desired primal weapon via bounties you need 50k souls and ~315 full bounty clears on t13. Don't even try this please ;)

    1% of all drops, 10% chance of a leg, 10% chance of a leg being primal.... Thats probably wrong math but it's been over a decade since I took stats,

    posted a message on Which class will you run in season 10?

    DH because you can have a farm build, Zdps build, Fun build, and GR pushing build (yay armory). Then will make a sader because I've only played them for a handful of hours.

    I thought there will be a reson to return to a game, but now there's none.



    Beyond the upcoming DLC that will make people come back for 1 season D3 has done nothing nor can they do anything to bring people back. It's maintenance mode bro, the game is what 5 years old... Jesus people move on. You either play because you enjoy it or you don't. I'm coming back this season because I'm bored of my other games and a few buddies are playing this season.



    It's good to see these forums are still the same with the same type of people >_<

    and by the way, 10% of legs/sets are ancients. that's pretty clear. I've also experienced that today. So in a way that confirms my assumption that the % chance of being primal is probably less than 10%.

    It's 1%

    just because you don't find something right away doesn't mean things are bad or wrong or your unlucky. If you flip a coin 6 times in a row and get heads some people may say that its not 50/50 chance.. which is incorrect. If you collect 10,000 legs and don't find 1 then there might be an issue. Sample size are your friend.

    posted a message on Should I come back to D3?

    There is never a reason not to return to the game. This is the type of series you can always go back to without consequence of not playing for awhile. Considering you took a 8 month break your not missing anything new so not much incentive to come back atm unless you have a itch to play D3.

    So in order to justify an incompetent of today you try to find a worst in the past! ?
    I bet the money you spend are not coming from your own pocket them so you don't care that much.


    Not sure where your going with this.... D3 WAS a BIG let down. They eventuality "fixed" it with RoS, but the game has a lot of flaws and it has muddled its way to something completely different that what the franchise was based off of.


    Apparently getting $0.04 entertainment per hour ($100 / 2500 hours) and having continuous patches for four years is the biggest slap in the face ever? Considering it took 10 years to "develop" this game and people are losing their mind D4 hasn't come out within 4 years of a release of D3 is just pure entitlement. This also isn't a MMO where multiple expansions are added for funz. Each expansion turns all equipment obsolete then you have multiple years of re-balancing all over again. They are actually adding additional content (for a fee of course) where as most games of this genre would have been left to maintenance years ago. Are people mad this doesn't get the attention like WoW does? I'm seriously trying to understand your thinking.


    I can assure you I spend my own money to play video games, the fact I played D1 would ball park me at least 25+ years old and I can tell you my parents aren't paying my bills.

    I am glad the disappointment of the fan base is so entertaining for you. At least you get something out of the Diablo series. I am not surprised you have fewer hours into D3, You probably spend most of your day trolling forums. Well played sir.



    Cheers, it's always good to see the (needy) perspective of millennials, can't wait for you guys to be running the show. My faith in our future has been restored to the levels of Trump in power :) If you really wanted to admit a true slap in the face how about waiting almost a decade for D3 and being the complete flop it was from vanilla. Get over your self.

    The main cancer I have noticed in all these threads over the last week is that of Demonmonger attacking everyone who doesn't offer the same opinion as himself. In this thread alone, he has called me a troll and even gone so far as to childishly add me to his ignore list for calling him out on his hypocrisy. The other trolls seem to have already moved on back to reddit or the main blizz forums.

    If you had more experience in the forums you would know to stop feeding the troll. Not saying he is in the right, but... Welcome to the internetz my friend.

    I have played diablo since diablo 1 release. I have about 2500 hours played on D3. I am very disappointed in the announcement. It is a slap in the face.



    Same situation as me except less hours on D3. It doesn't bother me because they put more into this game then they ever did in any of the other instalments (they also had to because vanilla was crap). Every Diablo game goes into maintenance mode at some point, heck this game almost made it 5 years before that point, but now they are adding DLC... cry much?


    Then again could be trolling... or sarcasm? I dunno, all these salty tears of late are delicious though.

    My poop was a bit more solid then normal today... so yah I could see how that might lead some to believe it as evidence that something in the future might happen!!

    Well that's the argument though, isn't it? Do you build a brand new game from the ground up, which will take years upon years with all new art and assets, or do you fix what is essentially a working game?
    I'd like to rather see a fix to the current D3. Unless they go into an MMO or other type of genre with Diablo, there's no reason to start over again.


    I'm happy where this game has gone since vanilla, but in its current state this game isn't fun playing for more than a week. Addressing some of the core issues of the game would cause a long overhaul of re-balancing, it took them a few seasons just to somewhat balance LoN and basically all it did was create massive power creep.



    There is a simple life-cycle of a game, the longer it is played, the quicker I get bored of it when I come back to it. If they re-hauled the game I'd be happy, but would likely just stop playing again after a couple of months. I rather have something new and shiny to eventually get burnt out on. for example I played wow a fair bit, but in the end I was playing the "same game" with new content that dumbed down all theory crafting and uniqueness. It eventually got to the point I bought and expansion and quit after two months because I seen most of the content and grinding the same game play I've done for years just gets stale. I haven't gone back in years and refuse to do so unless its F2P (which will never happen).



    The reason I made my two suggestions is it would be very easy and rejuvenate the D3 community somewhat. All D2 had was player damage reduction and it was policed and run by the community. It kept D2 going a lot longer than seasons did and it made other pieces of loot more intriguing. far as my suggestion for ladders, seeing the same old cookie cutter builds gets old. I know my suggestion would lead to the same situation, but wouldn't it be fun seeing a WD toad build and how far you could push it and get recognised?



    I enjoyed D3 and definitely got my entertainment value. I expect this game to go maintenance mode two seasons ago and now it just finally went maintenance. I've since switched to a few other games and are enjoying those thoroughly. When D3 finally gets some updates I'll be like most others probably play for awhile again before burning out. It's the nature of this series, it doesn't cost you to leave the game, you can always come back and enjoy any additional features.



    TL;DR
    It's been a good ride. Waiting for the new shiny, until then I'll enjoy Grim Dawn for my Diablo needs.

    A new franchise or D4. Fixing D3 would be more work than starting fresh.



    Only comment I can offer is add PvP with player damage reduction by 95% and add ladders based on specific abilities not classes (would see more variety of builds trying to push their limit).
