    Crusader can wield two-handed weapons in one hand, while using his shield in the offhand.
    Awesome!

    Oh yeah...I forgot. Aside form the Act, the class, the mystic, we also have 10 additional character levels and with it new skills with their corresponding runes for the expansion.

    I hope there's more than that though. The free patch (Loot 2.0, Paragon 2.0, Nephalem Trials, Loot runs) looks really great so the expansion needs to bring something more than that unless the expansion is really light and costs 25% of the vanilla like phatosen said, I mean D2:LoD had the runewords which broken as they are, changed D2 forever.

    Blizzard will definitely announce more expansion content at Blizzcon. That's the place for which you save the juiciest info.
    Josh stated that they picked only a few topics to talk about at Gamescom, and that there's a lot more to the expansion. Also, whoever thinks the game will cost less than 40$ is quite delusional. xD

    Does anyone else love how delightlfully awkward Josh is? It may have been nerves, but he seemed so unpolished and all over the place. I get the vibe that he is a fan just like the rest of us and was geeking out during the whole thing too. It was refreshing and made me feel like the game is in the right hands now.

    The game is in the right hands. Whoever made the call to let Jay go and bring Josh in did both the company and the community a big favor.

    Quote from ruksak


    This end game aspect is the most intriguing to me of all the systems introduced. I truly hope the devs let their imaginations run wild on this idea and they present us with something far more impactful and dynamic than the Uber event, which fell a little flat.

    I can't agree more. D3 is in dire need of complexity, and systems that will appease to a somewhat hardcore type of player for a prolonged period of time. These Nephalem Trials certainly seem like a place where you can go completely off the rails and use your imagination to craft a meaningful and rewarding experience.

    His charity thing is very legit and he's the number 1 donating streamer. He won a few hundred thousand, I believe, on poker and from what I remember donated everything, not 100% sure anymore. He also does science research and so on. Also spends the majority of his time theorycrafting so that he can then troll masterfully. To truly troll you first have to know something to perfection and he is the king of it.

    Very well said. I only followed him when he came to fame in the early days of WoW, and behind all that trolling and silliness he was always a really serious gamer and an amazing professional. That interview was great.

    posted a message on Loot 2.0 and AH predictions
    Quote from JKlimek

    The problem with game changers in self found is that unless your (shared) stash is full of "what if" accessory equipment, that game changer you found is worthless until you loot all of the other equipment to swap your build over to :) That's why the AH is so awesome. If I want to toy around with builds, I can spend an afternoon tweaking and getting the right equipment from the AH right away. Without the AH you really wouldn't even have people trying out non-cookie cutter builds because of the sheer amount of time it takes to find the right equipment (in game or third party trade).


    Except you won't need a full set of gear to successfully play a specific build. One item can make you change at least a spell or two with the way this new loot works. Also, you will have the enchantress to tweak the stats on the items to your liking.

    I also very much disagree about the AH, but that's probably because I'm biased and absolutely hate that it's been implemented into a game without bound on equip items.

    Quote from shaggy

    None of that matters if the self-found experience is rewarding.

    I don't need/want 500k DPS and 12903821903821 million EHP.

    What I need/want is to be able to find enough gear to move forward in the game on my own. I'm not in a race with anyone. I don't care if someone else uses the AH and "wins" the game faster. All I want is for the self-found experience to be good enough that I can immerse myself and truly feel like I can tackle the game on my own if I so choose.

    As long as the self-found experience is rewarding many people will forget the AH exists and it won't matter what the AH kids are doing and they can keep having fun with what they find to be fun.

    That is a dream that's quite possibly coming true with RoS. With smart loot, legendaries rolling on all levels and great new end-game farming additions, it seems like the enjoyment you get from actual gameplay will drastically increase.

    For me, the beauty of a self-found playstyle with a working itemization system is in the way you suddenly change your whole build and experience new ways to play your class whenever an upgrade with a sweet new affix drops for you.This keeps the game fresh and satisfying for a much longer time.
    Relying on your own personal luck and skill to progress through the whole game will always have you more immersed into the world, as well as being more attached to your character. Not to mention the rush and the feeling of accomplishment that follows a great drop.

    Maybe so... but if blizzard was smart they would refresh existing areas to make me actually WANT to start new characters and play through non end game.


    Well, they seem to be adding Nephalem Valor to lower levels, so leveling will definitely feel more rewarding, especially with the Loot 2.0. Plus, with Paragon Levels now being account wide, you will probably be able to put a ton of stats into +experience and quickly move to end game.

    Can't really see them revamping vanilla acts in any significant way.

    Nice catch, Edriel!
    Loved your ideas, so it's great to see something similar being implemented into the game. The more randomness to the world the better.

    I know some of you will hate me for this, but (as some of you might now by now) I really consider every minute of development time on PvP a waste. PvE >>> PvP for me.

    However, I'm pretty sure you'll all be happy (and I'll be mad) at Blizzcon. I think the "Nephalem Trials" mentioned on the official RoS page sounds very much like PvP.
    to me Neph Trials sounds more like a LAdder, or an endless dungeon they've been looking into. Trials seems to make me think you'll go through waves or levels of an endless dungeon and there will be a leaderboard as to whose gone farthest, shortest times, most gold earned, best item found, y'know something a bit more competitive but not PvP like.

    Yeah, Trials are definitely going to be an end game PvE system.

    No need to worry, Bagstone :D

    Josh > Jay

    Josh seems to "get it".


    Pretty much obvious by now.

    On topic, hell yeah I want to see PvP, in whatever form they decide to bring it to us. Doesn't have to be too glamorous or anything, but I hope they will balance it so it requires skill and time to master. Really hoping they share some news about this at Blizzcon.
