    Quote from Skelos_bggo-next

    Diablo 3 is not dead, the game is in a maintenance mode - something we know from one year and which was speculated even before that, when Josh M. left the team and the second expansion was oriented to become a DLC. Whether we'll see more character DLCs is unknown, but as Green said, I too prefer more in-game changes instead of new classes.



    Money incoming is the only way to prevent D3 falling into a real maintenance mode as D2 have obviously done. Saying that, it is very important that there would be another class DLC. Ok, it means not much updates during the development but there can be a few new things coming with the pack. Though only if they focus on important things like new systems or such instead of set dungeons and challenge rifts. And this patch after the Necro DLC is one of the best balance patches we have had so I'm personally pleased.
    Surely I dare not to expect anything after Nev's post but we never know.


    D4? Not interested. I honestly can't see it not being simplier than D3 or D2. If it's something completely new, then bring it on, if only they keep working on Diablo 3. D3 can be made a real gem with correct decisions.

    posted a message on why primals are so bad?

    A loud majority of the player base feel that they aboslutely NEED and have a RIGHT to get all the items in the game and thus very rare items can't be any better. It seems like half of the players would be ok if they just choosed a ready gear and a build from scroll menu to be played on a groups. That's fine though, each to it's own. I like to theorycraft my builds. In my opinion, Primals should have a chance to change the build. At least they should've two enchant rolls to be useful.


    Blizzard wasn't any better than the loud crowd as they first introduced the Primals with a better mainstat but nothing else. That was the most boring powercreep I had ever heard of.


    Sorry for almost a negative post.

    posted a message on Endgame Campaign Mode [graphics]

    What's currently problematic in D3 is that we can't raise T13 without making tons of builds useless. At the same time many players are bored to death playing tutorially easy bounties or rifts where even bosses are one shot.


    Greater Rifts saved the game but they grant excitement only through a timer which eventually makes us to yearn challenging gameplay without forever running against time. I find it most exciting when the enemy possess me a real challenge, instead of just thinking whether I kill him quick enough.


    Yes, we can play campaign with lvl 0 characters in T10 but we would like to improve our endgame characters as well. Sure it doesn't have to be endgame campaign mode if there's something better suggested.

    With reddit votes I was referring that it's pretty good compared to what other suggestion topics get there. The following survey shows there's interest in the campaign: http://www.strawpoll.me/13347478/r

    Not everyone votes or lurks the forums so it's about relative success. In both reddit forums, it is 86% that like the idea. You must also dig pretty deep to find a topic with +45 at official forums which isn't a rant: https://us.battle.net/forums/en/d3/topic/20747235014


    But sure, it wouldn't be for everyone. So aren't timed rifts or easy bounties. That's why some players prefer the campaign to have a revival.


    Also, I've removed mode soecific legendaries from the suggestion. Act 2 reward is now replaced with gift that instantly levels a leg gem to a current level you are playing at. Thus it would leave the player option to play the adventure mode. Cydaea's gift could be lootable as well.


    We just disagree. That's fine :)

    @TheLordOfTerror


    I clearly haven't been clear enough as I've always thought that player can't just simply farm Acts 1-3 or to do only Act 3. Player could restart the campaign but isn't granted with new act 1 reward before he have cleared the Act 5 thus finishing the campaign. So basically we have been thinking the same from the beginning.


    Sure, the another route is to let player to play one act here and another there but it definitely shouldn't lead into a situation where player always farms the same Act. So it's harder to design if we went like adventure modish way which either of us wanted anyway.


    Yes, the campaign would be playable with greater rift level scaling and resetting the quests. We can forget the rewards but now there's absolutely no reason to visit campaign with an endgame character and that's a problem for me.


    @Autocthon


    The Endgame Campaign Mode could be handled as the current game modes are handled. You could start it, have a month break from it doing adventure mode rifts and continue it when you feel like to. I understand that campaign is not for all but surely it spawns some interest as Diablo 3 forums have given +45 votes, r/diablo +100 votes and r/diablo3 +60 votes for this.

    Some Excellent analysis! Even so good, it makes me a little depressed as I remember that only QoL suggestions get through if any.


    First I got to say that I never thought player would choose an act. While it would be also an interesting way to deal with this, it would need rewards equally interesting and farmable (as Act V and Act III rewards). However, this was always meant to be played as a whole campaign.


    1. I agree that Cydaea's Gift would be a badass item. And I agree that RNG could be painful here. Maybe always allow new Gift but make the imbued item a purple colored unique item, of which player can wear only one at a time. Meaning that character isn't ruined if RNG hates him/her.


    2. I've started to think about having Urshi's Gift :: Player may update one legendary gem instantly to the same level he/she is playing the campaign through. (If player plays GR80 campaign, he/she will be granted with level 80 cabable Gift) It doesn't take as much time to level one Gem to 80 than to clear two acts in GR80 level.


    3. It could be from another pool. Maybe something like GR90 reward. There should be some another reward also to make Act IV interesting even if the Stash tab is acquired already. Maybe one granted Primal item? RNG problem but farmable.

    Now that the only challenge is in the Greater Rifts, what if we had an endgame campaign mode, where we could play the campaign from the beginning with our endgame characters? The rewards would be granted after each act, some of them once and some as many time as wanted. The Act V reward is granted according to a gr based difficulty level.


    Rewards can be adjusted, of course. Now there would be a way to get stash tab in non seasonal too.


    Note that unlike in gr, now you can deal with the gr70 difficulty level with your gr67 character as there is no timer. Death's breaths would drop along the way and player could change between game modes when desired. Wild idea: double the bounty materials gained if died only 1, 2 or 3 times during the campaign.


    Once you've defeated Malthael in the normal campaign or in the adventure mode, the endgame campaign mode becomes available at your campaign mode slot.



    EDIT: New ACT 2 Reward:

    Urshi's Gift :: Player may update one legendary gem instantly to the same level he/she is playing the campaign through.

    ACT 1 reward is granted every time the campaign is played through but player can wear only one item at a time that's imbued with a Gift. The item becomes purple colored Unique Legendary when Cydaea's Gift is used to it.


    What do you think?

    Blizzard is big enough to do D2 remaster, D3 patches and next Diablo game at the same time. Improving D3 doesn't take anything away from other Diablo titles.

    Some great ideas and I would gladly welcome those as well. Blizzard should see that it is everything that makes loot and builds more exciting that keeps players engaged rather than adding nice but irrelevant additions like set dungeons and challenge rifts.

    The Armor-Gemslots are definitely a something thats a little boring right now.

    Agreed. And they are also poorly balanced compared to each other. Weapons also use mainly only emeralds while it would be great to have some other options too.

    Would be nice to have crafted gear too, similar to D2. Maybe you could reforge rares in the cube for a guaranteed stat or two based on the gems you use, with the rest being random, like D2 crafted items.

    Definitely yes! In D2 the crafting was cool. In D3, the crafting is nothing you use after leveling.

    I'm not partial to the rune or runeword examples you've provided, but I think the system makes sense and it would provide diversity. I'd prefer the bonuses to be on the combat side of the spectrum vs. the utility side of the spectrum.

    It's great that you see the potential behind the controversial (or boring) examples. Agreed that combat side of spectrum makes them more desirable as a system.

    There's nothing so badly wrong in D3 that couldn't be fixed. Besides, there's is great chance that D4 is not even as complex as D3. In worst case the Diablo series suffer the fate of Warcraft series where last proper Warcraft is released somewhere in 2003.
