    posted a message on Primal Rage buff

    Geting all gear slots with primal ancients would be quite an accomplishment. Would indicate a significant amount of time has been spent playing the game. Perhaps such dedication should be rewarded?

    How about a Primal Rage buff?

    This could simply be a cosmetic effect. Maybe a red aura emanating from you character. Think dragonball z its-over-9000 powerup sort of thing.

    And maybe as a token dmg effect, similar to the red soul shard, a periodic burst of aoe damage goes off (but without the dumb going dizzy afterwards).

    Feel that getting a character fitted out with all primals deserves some credit.

    Quote from IzenManngo-next


    Either skill need to be nerfed, or defense buffed for PvP to work properly. Not sure whether this would be better done through PvP items that focus on balancing it, or direct stat changes (much like how they balance things out for apprentice mode).

    Agreed, one-shot pot-luck doesn't make for very good good PvP. Unless it's a deliberate 'draw first blood' mode...
    If it's too difficult to balance players into a PvP situation, they may as well just set a base line when entering a battle arena. If the struggle to balance players is to somehow artificially maken them equals, just ignore the factors that create the power level differences in the first place. In effect, make everyone play with same toughness and dmg potential. Regardless of which class, all primary.skills do same dmg, all secondaries do same dmg etc. Limit effects of bonuses from green sets and legendaries to perhaps things such as rate of cast (reduced resource, cooldown, more charges) but leave behind those monstrous dmg multipliers.
    Instead of balancing "my" character (say paragon 10 with no ancients) against "your" character (paragon 2000 full ancients), balance the classes themselves into PvP mode and then everyone would be competing with the same power levels.
    This places the focus on players winning through mastering the class' abilities and highlights player skill.

    Yes trying to use skills like Monk Dashing Strike is definitely a lot less precise on console, you simply don't have any control over the length/distance of the dash only the direction. I believe the whole twister wizard exploit was also absent on console given you couldn't place the cast of the spell on an exact spot.

    Nope.

    Simply put, criticism toward the console version generally seems minimal. Does this mean consolers are much more satisfied with their D3 experience?

    There has been a ton of hate directed towards the game for a long time now, criticising many aspects. It seems the majority of those voicing their displeasure are playing on PC.

    Disatisfaction from the console community seems to be quite significantly less. Are they easier to please? Or just have more reasonable expectations?

    Perhaps the oft criticised D3 mechanics/game design is actually perectly suited to the casual console gamer?

    The only real weakness for console is the out of control modding - would need to steer clear of online randoms to ensure integrity of the gaming experience is preserved. Not ideal but at least an option. Not sure Blizzard can do much about the modders even though they acknowledged during Blizzcon they were looking at combating the situation.

    Overall though D3 is quite possibly the best couch co-op multiplayer game on current gen machines (PS4 at least), and getting seasons is icing on the cake. As such would seem the console gamers have more to look forward to than PC-ers in the near future, at least til Necro comes out.


    Thoughts?
