    I see what you mean. :P

    Truth is though, they constantly update their site with pictures and info. I've been dragging that stuff over here for this community. I enjoy this community more, but wish the site had the frequent updates that IncGamers does.

    Seems to me everyone is copying Kotaku or diablo-3.net ;)

    Remember it's your complete setup that counts. Like XP will use less RAM than Vista.

    Oh that's right. I remember now getting some rares in D2 which was better than my unique.

    To make it even simpler you could make an example like this.

    Pick one type of item and we give it points how strong it is. Now all items will have some randomness to their stats. We call the outcome of this randomness "seed"

    So possible seed for a unique might be 20 - 98 and the possible seed for the unique might be 75 - 95. Where the perfect rare with the same affixes / suffixes as the unique will be stronger than even the perfect unique. Although the chance for this to happen is very slim. Making uniques better in general

    You mean 20 - 98 rare and not unique right?

    yea, I'll edit that

    Quote from MasterFischer

    THe point im trying to make is..

    that legendaries SHOULD be better than rares or crafted, just because they are what they are.. legendaries... very very very rare and sought after items..

    Yeah so what if the stats are fixed on uniques... they should still be better than random rares and crafted items in MOST cases.. but not the uber top ones.. which nobody will get probaly... so..

    yeah..

    If all rares were worse than legendaries there would be no reason to even look at them - just /salvage /sell

    ETA:
    And we do not know the dropchance of rares vs. legendaries yet. It will most likely be easier to get the perfect legendary than getting that perfect rare (with the same kind of affix/suffix)

    It all depends on what build you had etc. some set items were in the top and as you say many of the uniques were among the best. But there were also crafted stuff and rares that would beat many of the sets / uniques. I guess it will be similar in D3.

    It will probably not be: common < magic="">< rare="">< crafted="">< set=""><>

    It's all about the randomness. A unique item is less random than a rare item. The majority of the "seeds" of the rare will be far below the unique but there will probably be seeds that is better also, but very small chance of getting it.

    In short you need to look at the stats of the item you loot and not the color of it before you decide if you want to salvage it or keep it.

    Jay said that THE BEST items will come from crafting, in time. Legendaries/uniques will never be as good as the best rares, crafting or dropped... that's what jay said..

    That's because you will be able to "reroll" the "seed" of the crafted item over and over again but it will only change the item if it is an improvement. This however will cost alot of money and will take time.

    I guess it's a bit like trying to get a skiller from a GC by transmuting pgems in D2 (only that you keep the affixes/suffixes in D3)

    posted a message on Diablo 3 Beta Update
    Actually that quote does not say anything. What the original post said was "it will be out in September, hopefully before"

    Which is just saying we're still aiming for Q3

    Although JW still managed to keep us optimistic players hyped by saying "hopefully before that". Saying this is proof it won't be released in conjunction with gamescom is not really correct imo. Blizzard can still do a 180 on us and release it, they have left that possibility open in all of their statements.

    Blizzard is clever, being vague but still keep hype up - now they can suprise us whenever they want.

    Looks like rank 7 runes will be inferno only

    Makes sense. They didn't mention commonality though did they?

    Also, paranoia:

    They only show those three cause they're the primary colors right? Do we still have 5 rune types?

    I've only seen the pics from the press conference. I would like a video but I guess that's not gonna happen. Hopefully some1 will put down a transcript of the 90 min press conference :D

    Yea, inferno will be cool. I love the idea that there will be stuff that is very hard.

    Now we'll just have to wait for what info the "press conference" will give us. 8 mins left! Do we have a rep. from diablofans there ?

    ETA:
    Let's HYPE SOME MOAR! BETA starts in 2 mins !
    Attention gamescom goers: a portal to Diablo’s Burning Hells has been sighted at Rudolfplatz in Cologne! To celebrate this terrifying development, Blizzard is giving those witnessing the event a chance to win access to the beta phase for one of an upcoming games.

    Given out beta keys ! (although the "...of an upcoming games" kinda ruins that quote)
