    Quote from Shuggster

    I've noticed the blues have been going on a complete rampage recently. It's good to see them so active and involved in the community again. Not sure if I agree with everything they are saying, I kind of feel like our characters will be missing out on some sense of specialization with the new system at least. But whatever, I'm sure they know what they're doing.

    Maybe I am the only one who thinks this but I think Bashiok makes ALOT of sense. His reasoning is logical and I agree with almost everything he says.

    For me D2 was really fun for most things except skill choice, I was just too afraid that I'd make a bad choice and that really stressed me out. So in the end I found some ultimate guide for gear and skills and made a godlike character and then I had not much of a challenge anymore. The fun part was trying to get the ultimate gear for this character not the skills I chose.

    With the new system I can actually play the game and not be stressed out and be afraid of making the wrong decisions. Also this is the first game I think both me and my wife will love to play together. I won't have to worry that her inexperience with games will punish her so she'll loose interest right away and it will not be too easy that I will find it boring - perfect ! I'll pre order two copies right away ! :)

    posted a message on Beta Auction House Changes Incoming
    Quote from onimaru

    1.25$ in retail version of AH is to high imho. I think that lots of items will cost aroud 10$ and1/10 of price in a fee is madness. Blizz is starting to be realy gready .

    First of all it's only BB not $ so we have no idea what they will have for the actual RMAH. Secondly the transaction fee is only when I send my b.net balance to Paypal, right? Not for every sold auction?

    If I understand this correctly it means that as long as you use the b.net balance for buying stuff on RMAH or in the Blizzard store you won't be charged any extra fees. If that is true it would be really awesome and Blizzard would not be looking so greedy, plus it would only punish "greedy" people who wants to cash out money to the real world ;)

    As for the listings quality is always better than quantity. Now I will price my things so they sell fast so I can put up additional auctions, instead of just putting up hundreds of auctions and be happy if I sell one of them. (or as I did in WoW put up 2 000 auctions and was happy if at least 10 sold)

    This system seems awesome - rewards active players, stops flooding and makes stupid prices ineffective !

    posted a message on Difficulty Across the Modes
    First of all I have to admit that I have not read all the posts in here so someone might already have pointed these things out.

    I do not want to say that the beta is hard in any way but saying "Skeleton King is thrashable for level one chars" is a an overstatement. You might want to consider that that "level 1 char" is a twink with really good gear (noticed how he did like 20'ish dmg on his melee hits where you usually do like 1-2 on the first lvl 1 mobs) 94 health pots is not really something you start out with either.

    One huge difference between D2 and D3 is that there does not seem to be the same attribute requirement to wear gear. Most gear you get in the beta is equippable at level 1.

    As most of us know gear >>>> level in the Diablo universe so I do not see the relevance in using this video as a point of reference for discussing the difficulty balance of Diablo 3. Level does not mean much - obviously. Now go kill Skeleton King without gear at level 13 and see how that turns out ;)

    Aye! I think a shield might be a must if you do not want to risk dying all the time in hell and inferno.

    @ScyberDragon:
    Yeah it should be split like this


    But Lorgarns "fight of the liquids" is also a pretty cool idea.



    I'd say this art (without the dots) with the same color as in the OP. Perhaps tilted a bit to one side.

    @ Monk resource - you guys ruined it for me ... first I thought it was great but now I can't get the idea of it being jizz out of my head :P

    Quote from Daemaro

    I wouldn't say RIGHT around the corner but by the end of september is still a safe bet. I'm saying September 13th, don't ask why. I don't know.

    I still think August 26th!

    Looks like the new community site does not work in EU and I get "no characters were found" on the US one :(

    ETA: I got into the EU forums with the link from this thread but I get "an error has occurred" at the character list.

    Having the game installed on your HDD should not matter. You only need to register a key on your account afaik.

    posted a message on What are the best rpgs from Japan??..
    Have not played many of the games you have mentioned but I've played all Final Fantasy games and being a FFfan myself I gotta say one of them. I'd say FF VII because it was my first game but it grows boring after a while and you start playing one of the others etc... Right now I play Final Fantasy II again :D

    posted a message on D3 vs Skyrim 4 game of the year
    Quote from Siaynoq

    I'll get more mileage out of D3. And Elder Scroll games are only fun in the beginning. You can't go on playing them for too long before recognizing just how stale everything is. But D3 will be a huge disappointment anyway because it's been so long since D2 that it can't possibly ever live up to its own expectations.

    Never say never! So far everything looks more awesome than I could ever expect :D

    Quote from RedRocks

    I never made it past lvl 86 in D2. But this time, no ladder resets. Inferno: challenge accepted!

    In d2 you could not be arsed to gain max level since it meant ENDLESS baalruns ... thankfully that kind of gameplay belongs to the past. Goodbye mephisto runs, baal runs, countess runs, pindleskin runs etc...
