i still don't understand why uniques were called uniques in D2. How is an item unique if every item that drops is exactly the same? (yes i know dmg, armor, and values could vary)
seems like an oxymoron...

I think the huge difference between D2 and D3 is how you progress. In D2 regardless of what gear you acquired progression didn't end when you killed diablo or baal in hell. You could still keep leveling your character to 99. In D3 once you hit max level your character progresses by acquiring items which can be done without even playing the actual game. You can deck out your alt with all ilvl 63 items as soon as it hits 60. There's zero endgame replayability. Atleast in D2 when you finished playing your character and made a new one. Even if you bought the best gear possible for your alt you still had to actually play it if you wanted to get it to 99. unless you botted to 99 >_> I don't know about all of you but generally when i play a game doesn't matter what genre. A good game gets me so addicted it's all i can think about all day and i'll sit there and play for hours on end till my eyes bleed. I'm definitely not addicted to D3 =( i want to be i've been waiting 10 years to be...Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

- Soulbound or account bound items
- New interesting classes
- Better story
I'd go with BoE items that are account bound after equipping on one of your characters. but only for whatever the highest ilvl is at the time. Of course that still doesn't solve the gold inflation issue of not enough "DECENT" gold sinks in the game.
Definitely new class or classes and i could care less about the story. Yeah yeah yeah all you lore freaks want a great story to play through. Unfortunately you'll play through the story in what? 4-10 hours max? then play it again and again for another 500hours? Yes complain about story all you want but when it comes down to it. The story isn't why you keep replaying the game, if it was most of you would have stopped after beating normal.
anyway i'd like to see an overhaul to the itemization...bottlenecking people into certain builds and stats just plain sucks...

So i was thinking alot about whether or not i'm enjoying progressing through inferno. I think on one hand i do enjoy it as it's a challenge, but i wasn't sure if i enjoyed it more then say leveling to 99 in D2.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Completing hell difficulty in D2 was extremely easy and it was the grind to 99 that took some perseverance. Even if you managed to finally reach 99 with your character, you started a new one and did the same thing all over again. Pre-LoD grinding to 99 was a feat that few had done and after the LoD expansion it made it easier but it was still something that took weeks or longer based on your playing time. In D3 our endgame is progressing through inferno. Sure it was supposed to take a long time and though not everyone has done it the real task of D3 is acquiring the items to progress through inferno. But once you kill diablo on one character and have act 3-4 on farm. Doing the same thing with another character is not that far off compared to trying to level another character to 99 in D2.
So though you've probably already casted your vote. Even if you haven't completely inferno difficulty yet as i haven't. Which do you prefer for your endgame? Grinding to 99 or inferno difficulty?
My answer is probably grinding to 99. As much of a chore as it felt, it gave me something to strive for and i felt rewarded on a daily basis. Seeing my gold go up doesn't feel as good as seeing my character level increase and the overall power of my character increase.
So though in some of my post i said otherwise i take back many of the things i said. I still find this game fun but i feel a sense of stagnance at times. I still have alts to level and my barb still needs to kill diablo but there are times where i feel my daily gain in gold or items just isn't enough to make me feel like i'm getting anywhere.

Well atm i'm only at $23 because i sold a few items at the beginning and now just use that balance to buy and sell and find a few upgrades for myself. I found it alot easier to find items on the RMAH for cheap compared to the GAH. Most of the items i purchased for like $5-10 are worth around 10mil on the GAH. Generally, i'll try to sell most of the items i find on the RMAH first and if it doesn't sell then i may lower the price or put it on the GAH. Even if the item only sells for a few bucks i still find it easier on the RMAH because the prices on the GAH inflate at a rate faster then i can farm...Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

i understand the image but i don't understand the reason for the thread...yes he likes playing the AH that's great. Probably alot more productive then farming.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I guess it's better then a "i hate playing the AH" thread...

i can't handle act 3 champs yet but i did try a build very similar to this in act 3 for shits and giggles. I was able to kill all normal mobs but most champs wipe the floor with me. Although i didn't have any defensive passives and i had revenge instead of ignore pain. I think i'll give it a try again with more tweaks to my build...i can farm act 1 and 2 though pretty easily with the build.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
185% crit dmg
17% crit (this will increase to 27% when i get a mace or axe)
no regen or LL
After reading this though i think imma try get some lifeleach into my build and add more damage and probably ignore pain. I was trying to stack LoH but i'll probably try for more LL and see if my damage is enough to power through the 80% DR on LL. Quick question. What is your resistances at and are you able to do act 3 and 4 with this build? with warcry(impunity) my lowest resistance is at 800. I'm kind of thinking of dropping some resistance for more damage...possibly rings, amulet, helm or possibly for a life leach might belt. nice post btw...i love merciless assault, only last week did i actually try to work it back into my build but i've been doing a charge/sprint build. I'll probably give berzerker rage a try for more dmg and take out sprint for battle rage.

Well imo it's nice to know that i'm getting ilvl 63 items when farming act 1 or 2. Whether the stats are any good is the question but atleast i know their dropping, instead of farming my ass off for weeks getting nothing and wondering whether or not any of those 1000 rares i got were even a ilvl 63 item.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
And btw it was technically the community that asked blizzard to allow us to see the ilvl of the items. So if your gonna get mad then blame the community for asking for it in the first place.

You can still make alot of money if you know what your doing. For drops sure you need a bit of luck but like GT4 said you need to do alittle bit of research. Find out what types of builds each class is using and what stats are best for those builds. Many people vendor or salvage items that could potentially have been good for another class. My friend made a barb first like i did and vendored a ton of items that monks or DHs could have used because the only thing in our head was. We need str/vit/ra items and LoH. that's all we knew.Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands
So do your research and figure out what sells and what doesn't. Once you acquire a decent amount of gold whenever you have a chance, play the AH. Sometimes people put items on the AH for prices that are much lower then what they could potentially sell for because they don't realize what they have. Especially now with ilvl 63 items dropping in act 1 many players will be getting items that will sell for alot but they won't price it for the right amount.
I've actually been doing it on the RMAH. I had a decent amulet that i sold for $50 and i used that money to start buying and selling on the RMAH. I'm definitely not rich but if i keep at it i'll get there.

What a stupid concept. Grind. So you can grind. So you can grind.
Grind in a diablo game? what? There was no grinding in Diablo 2 wtf is with this grinding in diablo 3? this is an outrage, Nobody told me there would be grinding. I want my wow endgame back where everytime i kill a boss i get points to spend on items that don't increase or decrease in value. screw this stupid game.
