    I wont buy RoS because i just cant seem to see where the competition is in the game, and where the goals are.

    With trading you had goals. You could be lucky finding a awesome item, thanks to the rng gods, or you could grind items to sell, so you eventually would be able to afford that upgrade. Today you can only pray to the rng gods for better loot. There is too much singleplayer over this game, with the new BoA system.

    Furthermore i have always disliked the decrease of the party rooster from 8 to 4 people, and the loss of focus on bosses to find loot. I fondly remember the baalruns, mephruns, diabloruns, and cowruns for xp. Somehow it just worked much better with 8 people, and the manual rooster creation, with gamenames and the possibility to add passwords

    posted a message on The RMAH Destroyed Diablo 3 and I Told You So
    I have a hard time seeing how this game will keep players interrested more than a month or two. There are no goals, no real competition, no trading anymore. Its basically a single player game where you grind the same areas over and over indefinently. As soon people stop getting upgrades somewhat often you will propably see the playerbase fade away.

    With the RMAH you would always be able to sell the good/decent gear you found because there was always people less geared than you.

    The fact that some flipped items and earned alot og money and gold doing so, really didnt affect people much. The items just ended up costing the amount it was worth. I think the people that was angry was mainly jealous because they didnt get to grap the cheap items themselves.

    posted a message on Now that the RMAH is gone, how did you do?
    I accept alot of people dont like trading, but for me that was a huge part of what made the Diablo games fun. You grinded for hours and hours to find a few items you could use, but alot of items you could sell, to buy better items for your character.

    When you play games you need goals to reach, and trading items was a big part of that for me. With trading gone im also done with the game. Im not angry or anything. The game just doesnt have any worthwhile goals for me anymore with the removal of trading. I dont see the point of the game anymore.

    I can easily kill the endboss on normal mode.. i dont get any more satisfaction of killing it on torment 5.

    posted a message on So do people here actually like the game?
    Trolls have always been a part of blizzards various forums, so i guess you just have to learn to live with it. Personally i just ignore the troll posts. As for all the complaining i have to agree with those people, eventhough alot of them are just raging instead of complaining in a constructive way. I wont buy the expansion if they keep the BoA system. Trading is something i really enjoy, and have enjoyed in D2 and i simply dont understand why blizzard want to remove it. It really feels like most people enjoy trading, but didnt defend blizzard when a small group of loud people kept pushing for a BoA system. Sadly blizzard seems to have ended up listening to the small loud pro BoA minority. As many others i have had my fair share of fun with the game so i dont feel cheated.(the game was best in the beginning before everything was nerfed and dumbed down imo.) But i also think this game could have been soo much better if just they had developers with extensive and personal experience with D2, and knew what made the game soo successful for so many years. D3 RoS seems like a "use for a month and then throw away" game. I really cant see any lasting endgame in its current implementation.

    PS: This is not an ironic/offensive question, im just asking because I really need to know as craft/gems upgrades/enchants all need gold but I dont know how much
    looking at krips stream it doesnt seem like gold is that useful. He started from nothing and he already sitting on 50 million that he cant really use for something useful.

    RoS feels to revolve around selffound now. Its basically a single player game from the looks of it.

    Quote from Serpenth
    I stand by my theory that this game received such harsh criticism partly because half the people that bought it thought it was WoW with a different camera angle.
    With all due respect i think you are very wrong in this. Its more the opposite really.
    People wanted a upgraded D2, with manual trading, with runes with charms, with some kind of PvP, with releveling purposes. Instead you have a game that is very similar to WoW in its current implementation. You have the WoW gear obsoletion in RoS by moving from lvl 60 to lvl 70. Its just like a new tier in WoW. You have the instant respec at max level. you have the obsoletion of every item but legs.

    Mind you the game is not bad. There are many worse games out there. I just feel alot of people think the game wasn't what they expected considering the enormous popularity of D2 throughout more than a decade.(which is almost unheard of in the history of computer gaming)

    The big problem in teamgames is the 4 player cap. You wil always have leechers, or just passive players in your games. You had that in D2 also. But the difference was that even with 4 people afk there would still be 4 other people killing mobs and so on. In D2 you werent as vulnerable to AKF'ers/leechers as you are in D3. If just 2 people are afk, your killing speed is heavily limited compared to D2.

    Initially i was like "OMG i need to get into the beta! Cant wait!"

    After watching streams for several hours im more like:
    Same old same old.
    1: Get to lvl 70 in a few hours
    2: Use a few hours getting major upgrades replacing all your old items.
    3: Farm bounties and rift forever.
    4: After a very short while, skip yellow and blue crap items and only pick up legs.
    5: DE 95% of the legs you find and use mats to reroll stats on your current items.
    6: Keep doing this forever and ever.

    No PvP
    No trading
    No economy
    No playing with more than 4 people
    No ranking to work towards
    No laddders


    It just doesnt look like there are much replayability in the game outside the first few hours of gameplay at lvl 70.

    Well this means i wont buy the expansion. Wasted enough time in D2 trying to advertise my loot, trying to find good deals on the trade chat and trying to avoid the vast scores of scammers. I could always go to third party sites and sell my stuff, but it just seems soo timedemanding compared to the auction house.

    I think many will want the AH to come back once they realize the pain it is to trade using tradechat alone.

    posted a message on Your biggest dislike in the game?
    The thing i dislike the most was how much they nerfed the game. In the beginning it was tough... and i mean really tough to progress on inferno. I remember how i could somewhat easily complete act 1 but got completely obliterated in act 2. Slowly though i geared up and progressed like everyone else.
    I understand many believed it was too hard in the beginning, but i really dont think such huge nerfs was warranted. The natural accumulation of better and better items for less and less gold would help people gear up to progress eventually.

    Lack of a ladder system is also a big problem for a item accumulation game like D3. Its no surprice that it is near impossible to find useful or sellable items nowadays, because the items you find, have to be put up against the combined amount of items every single D3 player have found during a whole year of grinding for items.
    If you dont reset, or give people the choice to play on fresh servers once in a while, the whole item grind becomes pointless as the posibilities for finding useful items diminish every day.

    Lastly i think items stats have been handled poorly. there arent really much choice. you got to have high main stat, all resist, vit, on almost every item, and it quickly becomes boring. A chest without sockets? utter crap. A chest without all resist? Crap, and so on.
    I want choice back. It would be cool if you could use the combined all resist from 4 of the items you wear for example, or have a combined amount of 6 gems in your gear set. This way you have more choice and a chest without sockets might be useful to you eventhough it doesnt have any sockets, because you allready have 6 gems in the other gear you wear.

    posted a message on What's up with D3 ?
    Its because they know D3 was overall a failure and didnt have the longvitity D2 had.(success economically, but a failure gameplay wise) To me it feels like they have given up on D3 for PC and is hoping to revive it for the expansion.

    About the childish crap like costumes and other superficial stuff i guess it earn them a good amount of money as kids are less critical towards this stuff and is easily being sucked in to buy this crap on their parents creditcard. Afterall there are a whole lot of kids playing computergames, so you got a huge market here. Like WoW it really does feel like blizzard is focusing on this group rather than the more mature group of gamers. I mean their games have become more and more childish. Especially WoW.

    Looking at activity on streams, xfire numbers and so on, the people playing the game keeps diminishing.
    Atleast its very rare there are more than 2000 viewers looking at D3 streams on twitch nowadays, and half of those streams doesnt even show D3, but some other games.
    I remember the first 3 months D3 was one of the most viewed games on twitch.

    Kinda funny.. and kinda sad.

    For the past month i have earned more than 100 million gold just spending 5-10 min a day, buying and selling sub lvl 10 items. from personal experience these are basically the only items i can sell, unless you stike jackpot(happens every 50 hours og gametime or so....)
    On top of that these sub lvl 10 items sells way better and way higher than top tier items. Some is worth millions. I guess its because people like to twink and duel, or level fast, but it does show the crazy overflow of top tier items we have in the economy atm. Its ridiculous how difficult it is to sell your stuff now. Everyone have everything it feels and very few cares to buy better stuff as they can faceroll everything. This is a real serious problem, and i doubt an introduction of even better items will fix it.

    posted a message on So whats the point in playing anymore? (constructive no flame please)
    I have the same feeling about the game. It feels like its pointless to play, and i didnt feel that with diablo 2. I think there is 2 very fundamental reasons for this.

    Reason 1:
    In D2 you often farmed with other playing cowruns/diabloruns/baalruns. It was very varied. sometimes you got into a great group, where people socialized abit, and generally had fun, or a highly efficient run where a few teleporters found baal's room quickly and could deal out a huge amount of dmg. Sure some leeched but it didnt matter as the XP bonuses by playing in groups was better than playing alone. In D3 i never play in groups and when i have tried it it has been highly inefficient. To me this is a huge problem with D3. They really need to promote groupplay much much more, and introduce 8 player mode.

    Reason 2:
    In D2 there was actual rewards to relevel multiple chars of the same class. Partly to try new builds, partly to unlock certain 1 time only quests again, ect. You dont have that in D3. Level a class one time and you can try all the builds over and over again and there is no statdistribution. Some people like this but it actually hurts the game that there is no reason to relevel characters.


    But the main difference i think, is that the incentive to play with others to optimize your playstyle is not resent in D3. You often just play alone because its faster and more efficient.

    Quote from Zero(pS)

    The game is only not ok for those who care about what's "most optimal" and what's the "best way to play the game", which is a very negative way to view games nowadays, imho.
    I have said it again and again. People WILL NOT play the game the way its most fun for them. They will often end up playing the game the way its most efficent for them, and then grow bored quickly instead. Its human nature to strive for efficiency. Especially in a game like diablo, which is all about grinding. Thats why its very important to make groupplay more efficient than singleplayer.
    Same thing happened with WoW for me, when Blizzard, nerfed the raids into faceroll mode, and introduced LFR/LFG/faction change/realm change in both PvP and PvE. Suddently there was no/very little incentive to socialize, and treat people with respect.

    I also have to agree that farming is becoming very very boring because of how rarely good/sellable items drop. You can easily spent 10+ hours farming without finding anything useful.

    I honestly dont think the AH is to blame. In D2 you had several sites like d2jsp which basically functioned like an AH, and that didnt made the majority of items worthless. The main problem is that only a very few statcombinations are of any use in D3.
    A weapon without a socket or high crit? -> crap
    A chest without high all resist? -> crap
    A ring/amulets without any of the following stats: CC/CD/AR? -> crap
    Shields? -> crap
    Shoulders without high main stat+high vit+almost max all resist? -> crap.

    posted a message on There's nothing legendary about a pair of old socks
    Personally i think it has come to a point where its almost impossible to find a useful item you can use, or sell for more than a million on the AH, and so the whole grinding becomes irrelevant.
    I earn more gold spending 10 min a day buying selling lvl10> items on the AH(+50 mil in 3 weeks sofar.), than i do spending several hours grinding for items in inferno act 3.

    The game need a ladder reset, runewords, a new tier of gear to grind for, or charms... something that makes it possible not having to play 50 hours just to find one useful item as it is now.

    Im not stuck in the 90s, so I can enjoy D3 for what it is and not grasp at an old, outdated, "good-for-its-time" relic.Im certain D3 will be better than D2 ever was.

    Lots of the good stuff from the 90s havent been implemented though, and thats a big mistake.

    No Ladder
    No runewords.
    No PvP until 1.7
    Only 4 players max instead of 8? big mistake.
    heavy gold inflation as there is no gold sinks, or alternative currencies
    Very little reason to team up
    Removal of the usability og gold and magic find + a stupid cap.
    No manual stat distribution as you are leveling up.
    No infinite dungeon system.
    Too much emphasis on weapon dmg and primary stats, which forces you to focus on only specific stats.
    No funny weapons/items with special skill abilities(D2 teleport spell on a runeword comes to mind)
    Poor combat against botters, resulting in a heavily inflated economy.
    Little reason to level a new char as you can change your skills at a whim.

    @Coldhatez: The main reason i used a LoH gem was for survivability before the patch. I just couldnt keep my life up without it, so i was kinda forced to use it instead of a emerald. I could try finding a amu with high crit chance and high LoH instead. That was actually a good idea

    You guys all get to keep your paragon system and we get to get a benefit from it too.
    I agree i dont see why a cap is needed, especially considering you already have diminishing returns.
    But using blizzards logic, why not put a cap on defensive stats also then? Aparantly they think diablo players can only have fun if they only have to care about dps stats.

    Ladder not fun? Please stop telling us what's fun.

    Watching a handful of nutters that no-one else even has a chance of competing with racing to the top of a paragon-level ladder is fun for you? I'd have to see a vote before I could believe you weren't in a very small minority.

    Unless you're seriously suggesting that they were saying that ladders in general were a bad idea? You're not, are you? Because that would be very embarrassing.
    jeezz......why is soo many thinking its all about racing to the top? I couldnt care less about who gets the 100 paragon levels first. The reason a ladder is great is that you get to start over from scratch with many others, and best of all with a fresh economy. You will be able to sell stuff that arent sellable atm, because people wont have the best gear yet.
    You know currently less and less items can be sold simply because people keep improving their gear and selling their old. There is no items that leaves the economy but only items that enters. In the end you will be left with only the very best items that can be sold because of this fact.

    "With the Paragon system in place, we’re capping Magic Find and Gold Find to 300%"
    Well, we need clarification if they plan to rescale MF now that it is capped. I believe I have read somewhere MF in D3 is not capped but there is maximum amount of MF obtainable by a character that was around 425. Also, those 300% are from gear and Paragons levels, therefore, there will be another 75% granted by NV stacks.
    While this is, potentially, nerfing few players who could get max MF gear and run efficiently Act2 or higher, majority of players will not be impacted because they could not afford such gear in the first place.
    Finally, you should also take into consideration that they are increasing drop chances and quality of drops in this patch to make it more rewarding.

    Im happy how the whole patch and especially Paragon idea panned out. Gimme teh patch nao!
    unless they do something about item swaping this will be heaven for script kiddies. Heck i will propably get a script myself and then carry around a cheap MF set in my bags. Afterall that is way more cost effective than to buy great items with MF, this patch as the MF on the items will become worthless over time.

    I played D1 and D2 as much as anyone else. That isn't a relevant point to make and it doesn't help your credibility, as D1, D2, and D3 are similar, but extremely different games.

    magic find already have diminishing returns, so you wont see legendaries drop left and right. But its a real shame to remove 2 more useful stats on the gear.

    That will finally kill the game for me. MF is a great thing to have in diablo and it helps you make choices when you gear up. MF/GF vs dmg/defensive abilities. MF is a big part which makes diablo fun.

    As a D1 and D2 player this removal of MF makes me very very sad. :((

    If i could i would get down on my knees and beg them to remove the cap.

    How does Blizzard do it? They make a game with all these annoying small things that they know players will hate. Then they wait for a certain big game like GW2 to come out. And THEN they pump in this miracle patch in the same week as the GW2 game releases, a patch that could have been out months ago.
    I dont think they make changes people will hate on purpose, but i agree that it seems pretty clear that the big changes and patches always comes out when other big games is being released or have open beta weekends.

    Quote from Bodycount1

    That being said.. with gold prices at $1.00 per million.. i'm shocked AH prices haved went up more than they have already. When supply is plentiful, prices should go up. If the U.S. treasury prints 1 trillion dollars *extra* than they should.. the value of of the dollar will go down thus it costs more money to buy the same thing. It's called inflation. With all these gold farmers out there with 100's of accounts using bots farming gold every day, we should be paying a lot more than we do now for items.
    Only a small amount of people buy gold, and only a small amount of people have hundred of millions of gold. That leaves some 99% of the playerbase that have less than 10-20m gold. Naturally the ultra rich coudnt care less for the 1-10m items, so they will ignore them, and naturally the pricerange for these items will keep being in the range of the 99%ers. Its how the system works, and very similar to real life. Take the most sought out houses/apparatments in the world. They can sell for up to 1 billion dollars, like the very best items in this game just keep rising in price.

    Basically you are angry that you cant get items which are out of your pricerange. You can choose to keep complaining about that or accept it.
    I myself cant afford items above 2-4m a piece, and i have to accept that. Do i want those 20-200m items? Sure! They have awesome stats, but they are also soo rare that only the most hardcore people can afford them, or the ones that are best at trading for profit on the AH.

    I have noticed though that the quality of the 1-3m items is slowly going up, so my gear quality will natually go up... like your gear will. You just dont have the patience and apparantly want the best gear NOW!

    Ohh and you are free to flip items on the AH too. Noone is holding a gun at your head, preventing you to do it also.

    You would be surprised to much power supply and demand has.
    People simply wont keep up putting overpriced stuff on the AH, when it wont sell.
    At some point they will say fuck it and put the items up at a price that will sell so they can get rid of it.

    The AH is very selfcorrecting, and i see trends on how certain items keep falling in price while the very best items keep rising in price. Its perfectly normal for a system like this.

    Quote from Mahoraba

    Quote from Bilge

    Fascinating. I didn't realize that having better gear lowered the amount of health elites in act 3+ have to the amount those in act 1 have, allowing you to farm act 3+ just as fast. Thanks for this insight into game mechanics.

    Better gear doesn't allow you to one shot Act 1 any faster then you already do, It does allow you to "One shot" or in better terms burn a pack down even with the harder of affixes in seconds, not because of "amazing DPS stats" but because of both defensive and offensive stats allowing you to straight burn the pack down quickly. This assumes you're not a horrible 1h/Shield Barb or Monk that plays in such a way that they just live forever and do close to zero damage, a play style like that I could never play. Not fun.

    http://www.diablofan...al-farming-run/

    As i've shown above I clear on average 32 Elite packs, 4 goblins and 2 bosses in a span of 45 minutes normally, you would be surprised how much you can just stand still and kill a pack with 300% Crit Damage, 30% Crit, 900 All Resist and 2.6 Life Steal.

    Sure, they have more health but they do not take longer to kill for me my Act 1 clear that I use to do isn't shorter then my Act 3 route and it doesn't kill as many Elites either, they're around the same clear time, even if Act 1 was 10 minutes faster and killed the same amount of things (Which it doesn't) it would not be better because 10 minutes isn't three times as fast as my Act 3 clear.
    You are very correct and also why its faster for me to do act 2 instead of act 1.

    At some point your gear is good enough to steamroll a higher act and when that happens, its simply more efficient than to just stay in act1.

    As others have said. Farm the highest act that you can easily steamroll.

    The last week i have tried to farm all the good places in act 1 and act 2 just to see what is best.
    My conclusion is that act 2 is better, but only by a small margin.
    Act 3 as a DH is pretty damn tough so no reason to do that. It seems you really have to get kickass gear to make act 3 viable. And by kickass gear i talk about +500 millions worth of gear.

    So for now im sticking to act 2.

    posted a message on When they change MF/GF...
    In my humble opinion the worst thing they can do is to add a MF switch button. First of all i think its stupid and second of all i dont want to run around with a crummy set of blue MF gear each time i have to open a chest or finish a champion.

    what i hope they will do is to zero out your MF for 2-5 minutes each time you switch a piece of gear. Its simple to implement and it stops people from gearswitching.

    Second of all i think chests should affect your MF. Right now even replenishment chests are worthless 19 out of 20 times. They should let your MF apply when you have 2-5 NV buffs. Again simple to implement.

    Quote from cardrel

    I would rather hunt down a piece of gear that is going to benefit me IN COMBAT, then hunt down a piece of gear that is only going to benefit me after the thing is dead. With these talent trees, it lets everyone go for whichever build they want, without being hindered by trying to stack things that make the game harder. And as for balancing the Dmg vs MF thing, - this is in regard to gear swapping macros. Idk, it was just an idea.
    If you want to seperate MF from gear completely there is zero reason to have MF in the first place, and there is zero reason to implement what you are suggesting.... which is dumb. This is Diablo and its built partly around MF. Removing that aspect is a big nono in my book.

    Again just zero out MF for 5 min everytime you change a piece of gear. Its a simple timer that has to be implemented, and it stops people from switching to MF gear at 5%

    Quote from Iracor

    Except that by removing MF from gear you're removing a key element of the game. Magic find is about striking a balance between it and your damage/survivability. If you just let everyone have a type of magic/gold find through talent trees it removes a key gameplay mechanic.

    Basically, Blizzard would not do this. They're focused on finding a way to reward people who gear for damage/survivability/MF as opposed to people who have two sets of gear that are built around damage/survivability and another set with just MF.
    I can only agree. MF should be something of a choice when equiping gear. DPS/survivability vs MF/GF.

    The simple thing blizzard should do was to just zero out MF/GF for 5 min everytime you change a piece of gear. simple and easy to implement.

    Quote from jwylie311

    Wanting a gear switching button means you want to equip your best DPS/defense gear, lower an enemies health to 5% or lower, and equip extremely meaningless and poor items that happen to have high MF for the killing of the enemy.

    That's f*cking lame. This would remove the entire idea of trying to build a nice MF set with minimal DPS/defense loss.

    Is that what you losers want? No set of MF gear with minimal DPS/defense loss? You don't want to have a whole new and fun theorycrafting strategy to work on?


    UGH
    im with you all the way. Its quite horrible that blizzard even consider a switch button like that.

    Having a MF button and essentially make MF swapping a requirement would be the worst choice they could do. I did it in the beginning but it was utterly annoying to do and you died from time to time, so i choose to get items with MF that i could fight with also, like in D2. Honestly this is how it should be.

    Making yet another stat irrelevant on our gear is not a good solution. Soon we will end up with only 4 stats that are worth using which will make it even more boring. MF on gear should be something that people thrive to get.

    Very nice post about MF,
    This is why i come to this forum. To get relevant and nicely researched information about the game mechanics.

    Having 200 MF myself unbuffed the numbers equals pretty accurate what i seem to experience also. It will give you a few extra Rares, but the impact of MF seems somewhat small. I wonder if this is a thing blizzard will look into´, and maybe buff the efficiency of MF.

    If you have followed the AH prices you will notice that medicore items are worth jack shit now and only really good items rise in price. If you want to compare it with AH his gear is propably only worth 200k now.

    There is a stream on twitch currently where some monk cleared act 2(maybe more i dont know) with gear worth a total of 200k.

    Ok with the new dropchances of high lvl items in act 1-4 how many more items per hour do you have to find in lets say act 2 compared to act 3 to make it worth it.

    The new approximate drop rates are as follows:

    Inferno - Act 1
    • iLvl 61: 17.7%
    • iLvl 62: 7.9%
    • iLvl 63: 2.0%

    Inferno - Act II
    • iLvl 61: 18.6%
    • iLvl 62: 12.4%
    • iLvl 63: 4.1%

    Inferno - Act III and Act IV
    • iLvl 61: 24.1%
    • iLvl 62: 16.1%
    • iLvl 63: 8.0%
    It might seem easy just looking at the iLvl 63 items and say you need to find twice as many yellow items in act 2 to make it worth farming here instead of act 3, but what if you also include the droprates of lvl 61 and 62 items?

    $1/million sounds about right.

    But with the rumors about duping/exploits, where people have gotten billions of gold i fear the gold inflation will be insane.

    Its very possible a minority sits on a humongous amount of gold atm just waiting for the RMAH to go live. When they deside to put that money out in the current economy i think the price for everything will skyrocket. Furthermore simple script bots who farm gold seems very common, and very simple to make, so thats another hit for the value of gold.

    posted a message on Critical Hit Damage > Attack Speed ?
    When i check which items are best with or without SS i always first check the item without SS.

    Then i switch to SS and immediately go into my bag and then hover/unhover over the item i want to check. The longer it takes for the dmg gain to break even compared to the item i have equiped, the worse it is imo.
    For example you dont want an item that can only give you more dps when your crit chance is 80-90%. ON the other hand if the dmg gain breaks even a few percent over your base crit chance without SS then i would say its better.

    It might not be the best method to quickly check items but it works for me.

    I actually like the extra repaircost as long as they nerf the dmg mobs does, As it is now i still get oneshot as a DH with ~350-400 all resist and 32k life at certain mobs in act 3. Take those soul lashers(i think thats the name), They move very fast, and can hit you from across the room with their tongue. Unlike archers they dont have a casting animation for the tongue and the tongue moves 2-3 times faster than an arrow so its just impossible to dodge it, and they oneshot me eventhough i have invested quite alot in defensive stats.
    I dont mind ranged mobs that oneshot me, but atleast give me the chance to dodge their volleys.

    posted a message on Do you think d3 will last as long as d2?
    It all depends on replayability.

    In D2 it took weeks or months to reach lvl 99. In this game the time it takes to reach max level is nowhere near D2. Thats one nail in the coffin for the lasting of this game.

    Hands down the most important thing that will deside if this game will stay popular is the economy. D2 did this very cleverly by having runes/runewords, small/large/grand charms, aswell as certain legendaries like stone of jordans. Instead of gold these items worked as currency. In D3 you only have gold as a currency and i think that will be a problem. There arent these items that you can grind for like you could in D2. In D3 either you find the item you are looking for or you dont. In D2 you could slowly grind towards that hard to get item, by finding usefull charms, Stone of jordans, runes and so on, and then sell a bunch for your sought out item. I really doubt that any amount of gold would get you a hold on a great windforce or something similiar, simply because gold is too easy to get. Most likely these really hard to get items will be sold for real money and that will keep most away from trading the lvl 60 gear. This is quite a problem as its very fast to level to 60.

    The lack of magic find boosting on your character is also a big thumb down in my book. I loved this aspect of maximizing MF and grinding bosses. Playing and looking at high level streams, bosses seems to drop worse loot than champion mobs and rare mobs. That just seem wrong.

    Also the fact that once your level a class you can play around with the skills. In D2 you had to start over if you. f.eks wanted to play a fire sorc instead of a cold sorc. That in itself made you want to replay the game.

    Finally this is also partly a Activision game(dont be naive thinking they have nothing to say)
    Knowing Activision they will do everything they can to squeeze every penny out of this franchise. Im sure this game could be waay better than it is but they will keep the good stuff back, for future expansions. I think we will see introductions of runewords, i think we will see good old farming of bosses for loot, and boosting, i think we will see lvl 99 grinding that will take ages, but they hold it back for various expansions, to farm peoples money. Activision are experts at doing this.

    Edit: Of course they keep ressurecting each other in every boss fight like a hundret times. Blizzard should have really made it so that you can only ressurect other players in a boss fight one or two times and after that, he stays dead until the event is restarted.
    Well you wipe alot on tough content so i dont see why that is bad. Sofar they have still spent way less tries on these bosses than what guilds are doing against WoW HC bosses.
    I also dont like the fact that you can ress during fights, but looking at high level streams it really seems like blizzard have designed the game around this aspect.

    Running past mobs might be cheesy but it happened all the time in D2 and D1.

So THEY didn't do it either. Thus, they really didn't achieve much. I hope they had fun too, but call it what it is, and don't take credit for something you didn't do.
    Getting a world first, whatever it is is all about teamwork, and organization. Athene has a way to create just that around him and his goals, and thats why he keeps getting various world firsts. The fact that so many people wanted to support him in this is actually an achievement in itself.

    Personally i think the biggest achievement he did was to raise around $15000 to charity during the whole event, which is pretty awesome to do.
