    It was a crazy run, I think 3 other set pieces dropped for the others in the group too. Done a few runs since and the normal RNG is back for me.

    Everyone links shiny stuff they get, and I feel like Charlie Brown in the Great Pumpkin... "I got a Rock"

    With the new loot buffs, i got a RNG goldmine today, first rift 2 Set pieces about 2 minutes apart , last chest we opened and then the rift boss. 2nd Rift, another set Piece. That equaled my total set pieces found since ROS launched, all in less than 30 minutes.

    just like real life, when your young, you dont have money to buy everything you want, you save and save and work hard to get the few things you want...as you get older you get more saved, you can splurge on better things.

    posted a message on Massive XP nerf?
    oh noes, it will take an hour to gain a level instead of 30 minutes, give me a break, these new Paragon levels are way easier to gain than the old ones, but everyone QQ's when blizz goes to fix the problem that should of been done awhile ago, with all the buffs, extra xp out there, i felt it was TOO much, I hit level 60 on a fresh toon at the beginning of act 3 of the first play through, thats sad in my opinion, seeing everyone at these crazy Paragon levels before ROS even hits, is ridiculous too. I am glad to have the XP nerf, Make it so we actually have to grind out some levels again.

    posted a message on RMAH gold price going up?
    I have been slowly selling off all my old gear, and RMAH the gold from it, I was never one to have top tier gear or anything, but I am happy to have gotten close to $30 so far, just need to grind up some more gold, like another 100 mil and i may pay for my Reaper. I had cashed out my initial D3 investment plus another $200 back in the early days from 3 sweet drops. so all in all I have to say I will miss the RMAH a bit, but am more than happy with the way that D3 is going as well.

    posted a message on Is this Diablo anymore?
    Its so funny that most people that seem to revel in the glory of Diablo 2, are still acting like the angst filled Teenagers they were when that game came out. D2 had some good things going for it that we lost (Skill Trees, Ladders, Runes, and for some Hostile Mode) but, with the losses of those things, came the clean up of many more bad things... Duping, Scamming and Griefing.

    I can without a doubt say that I would play D3 over D2 anyday, and I had countless lvl 99's back in the day. Take of the nostalgic glasses and look at it for what it is, and you can see its a much more polished game, esp. now that 2.0 and Reaper are here.

    posted a message on Loot 2.0 and AH Removal... my thoughts
    Some of the loot 2.0 ideas have been implemented into the console game, the increased power of legendaries, the frequency of drops, etc. Even if it is geared more for casuals, its showing how easy it is to get the gear and overpower the fights.

    I have completed all the Belial and Azmodan achievements on my way thru Inferno , those should not be easy things to do. I pop Archon and melted Azmodan without even having to move. Yes, its on Normal difficulty, but Its still shows the dumbing down of Diablo that is coming. This follows the track record of Blizzard with what they did with WoW, making it so the masses can do everything in the game.... all the way to the "end game".

    As for my son playing the game, I agree it is up to each parent to decide, my wife and I have decided that this is more of an arcade type of bashing blowing up stuff... to be honest, its a more complex version of the Skylanders games, which he has played for countless hours and you bash/kill/blow up the enemies... Diablo just has a darker theme, and alot of cartoon blood/gore.

    posted a message on Loot 2.0 and AH Removal... my thoughts
    Ok, I have been around Diablo since the original, played a good amount of D2, and tons of D3.

    I also played WoW from Vanilla into Cataclysm. I raided regularly, and enjoyed the old challenges of WoW where not everyone got the bosses down, and having 3 or 4 pieces of Epic gear meant something,...not where everyone can get the Epic loot for doing nothing, like it turned into.

    Diablo is going down the WoW road with Loot 2.0 and the AH removal... and the Console version is the perfect showcase of this.

    In the beginning of the PC version of D3, it took a few hours/days of loot/gold grinding to get my characters ready for the next level of difficulty, especially to move from one act to the next in Inferno. I enjoyed the challenge, every new drop that you could either sell for a bit of gold or equip was exciting, it got you closer to moving past the next barrier of advancement.

    Fast forward to the Console version... I am playing a Wizard on "Medium", which is a normal/mp3 equiv. I get Legendaries regularly, I havnt put alot of time in, but with the exception of the Diablo fight in Nightmare mode where I just needed to gem up my health, I have not even had an issue with a fight. I am in act 3 Inferno, and have not even had to retry a boss fight more than 2x to complete them. When I beat the game on Inferno, I will bump the difficulty, but really, the first time thru I shouldnt pwn every enemy in sight, I shouldnt already have 116k DPS, and 45k health.. I should have to work and grind to get that!

    This is what Loot 2.0 and the AH removal will do to the PC version. It takes all the loot hunt fun out of the game! Its turning it into why I quit WoW, Welfare Loot, everyone gets legendaries, No one has to work to get good gear... No need to worry about trading, you will get all the gear you want. I have found 2 set patterns, 2 other Legendary recipesabout 15 yellow BS patterns, 8 JC patterns, including 3 of the Marquise. I have a 1400 socketed 1h weapon that dropped at the end of HELL...

    For those that say I could be lucky... I will point out that my 7 year old son, is halfway thru act 3 in Nightmare mode, doing it all self found, no help from dad, and he is just mowing down the bosses and packs like nothing, granted he is playing on "easy", but seriously, he is only dying when he doesnt get out of the fire or arcane beams.

    Everyones QQ about how the AH ruined the game, and how you cant find gear, get ready, you will get what you want, but sadly, after the initial excitement of the good drops in the start of the game wears off you will realize that all replayability is GONE.

    Just my opinion, I enjoy d3 as it is now on the PC, challenging and a reason to play to get that better loot, whether to equip on my main, give to an alot or sell on the AH to build my gold stacks to buy better gear if needed, there is a PURPOSE to play. I have seen the future of D3 via the console, and it makes me realize that Blizzard has caved again just like it did with WoW, and dumbed another game down for the masses.

    posted a message on Diablo 3 PS3 Boxart and preorder details
    Quote from Jamoose

    Who cares about an item you get if you pre order? i don't understand...

    @HolyCrepe: I don't think so... I'm pretty sure they will launch the PS3 version alot sooner than the PS4 release. I might be wrong though... Oh well.

    I think with it being announced at the PS4 reveal, the PS4 is the one they will release first, PS4 is only ~6 months away.... It will most likely be out Late Oct or Early November.... now if that gets delayed till Dec or beyond, then the PS3 one will be out first to cash in on the holiday season in full.

    My point was to say that the games release date would probably be the PS4 Launch date with it being a launch title, and the PS3 version would come out either at the same time or shortly after to help drive PS4 sales.

    I would bet that Diablo 3 is a PS4 release title, and the PS3 version would release at the same time or shortly thereafter.

    that in Act 1, Leah is staying at the Inn? Shouldn't she live with Cain? He raised her, he has a nice house, but forces her to live at the Inn?

    Sorry, too much time on my hands today, and sorry if this has been brought up before.
