sorry i had to wipe my eyes from laughing... dude, RoS is adding 10 more levels... items right now might seem like toilet, but they have crazy potential. they didn't want people stacking CC CD and IAS anymore. that's boring. really really boring. so is buying all of your gear on the AH. i'm glad they're getting rid of it. as far as loot 2.0 is concerned, i agree, but i also disagree. the mechanics of the game have changed, therefore you don't NEED the damage stats and all that res anymore. i've found some complete ass items so far. i've also found some pretty good ones. with 10 more levels, those items will get that much better. 800+ mainstat and 800+ vit on 1 item? yes, please! kindly do us all a favor and simply play the game, or don't, but for christ's sake keep it to yourself. <3Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

i got a plvl100 WD, i'm less than thrilled about the damage that they've been reducing on their skills and such, so i'm not 100% sure i'm gonna stick with that til i get some play time in. either way, i'll start by getting my WD to 70 and learning the new content / story. that saturday, LAN at my brothers house, and we're all gonna start crusaders. if i like the crusader more than my WD, i'll switch to crusaderPosted in: Diablo III General Discussion

i do like the idea of doing a trade type thing, though... or how about removing the buy out feature? this way you actually have to wait, and it'll be what people are willing to pay for it... still, the problem lies in people simply playing the auction house to get money to buy gear. that's the real issue. doing that long enough gives you retarded amounts of gold, which you can then use to buy items and flip them. it just needs to go. or, keep the AH, but remove RMAH and make items worth something, make it possible to find useful items. if that were the case, people would be able to acquire their gear by game play if they choose, or sit around on the AH for hours and acquire their gear that way. this would satisfy the AH users who wanna play the AH instead, and satisfy the people who want to actually play the game and find good stuff. the only difference is, gear wouldn't be so retarded expensive, which i think is how it should be. less demand for certain items would cause them to be a bit cheaper, allowing newer players to put together a decent set of gear for 500k or so after leveling a character.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

removing the AH is essential to the survival of D3... RoS will offer better and more accessible loot through farming. farming is what you're supposed to do in this game. it's what made D2 so good... getting those perfect items to make your character a beast. the issue here is that people want everything now. if people don't get it now, they don't play. blizz wants customers, so they're doing what they can to teeter on the fence of just having an NPC with all the perfect legs for sale for no gold, and just making items accessible through hack n slashing through the hordes of hell... honestly, putting work into my character and PROGRESSION are the things i'm looking forward to playing. not to mention there is gonna be more skills, a new class, and more story. this is what makes diablo diablo. anyone who played D1 knows that RoS is a step in the right direction.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

i'm thinking the new loot system paired with endless paragon levels and the additional 10 levels will completely negate everything everyone has found thus far. i play diablo to kill stuff, to collect items, and "finish" my characters by making them as strong as possible. trading is a means to an end, which alot of people don't seem to grasp. feel free to trade with people, that's why they're making communities and clans... it's not a difficult concept. play with friends, trade with each other. play a pub game, and trade the items you find. the idea behind all the changes they're making is that people will be able to FIND things. that's why D3 vanilla sucks. you can't simply find items, which in turn drove the AH prices through the roof. that, plus greed. don't get me wrong, i want good items and i want expensive items (they sorta go hand in hand, no?) check this. you kill monsters to find stuff instead of flipping items on the AH. flipping items on the AH isn't "playing diablo" this is what they're trying to fix.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

yes. yes, this.Quote from ruksak
This is why I like this website. The odd discussions that spin-off. I really missed it.Quote from Dimebog
But D3 is not a remake of D2, it's a sequel. Understand the difference between a remake and a sequel. Both concepts exist in games as well as movies.
Yes, I understand the inherent difference between a remake and a sequel. Toward the example of Robocop/Diablo 3; Robocop wasn't produced by the same minds that gave us the original. A new vision was applied to the movie, differing greatly from the first version.
Diablo 3 wasn't a "remake" in the traditional sense, no. It is a sequel. But I apply "sequel" specifically to the story. The story of Diablo 3, as tepid and luke-warm as it is, bears the only part of D3 that should be referred to as a "sequel".
The game itself is a remake. From top to bottom, it was remade. To seek broad, mass appeal? To easily port to console platforms? Sure. Yep. I believe the previous two bolded sentences to be EXACTLY what caused the Diablo franchise to derail. I believe that corporate influences whom perch well above the design/dev team had clear financial goals set in place. "Goals" which interfered with the production team being capable of producing the best Diablo game they could.
I sense a new "goal" being preeminent with the coming of RoS. A goal to make the best Diablo game. For core fans. For PC players. For the OG fans whom chomped at the bit for years waiting for this thing. I like what I'm hearing and I'm very excited.
I have gained some prospective, however. Skyrim. What a great game, aye? Heck ....I played the heck out of Oblivion a few years back. Finally boght Skyrim. Really fun, played it to death.......for about a month and I haven't felt even a slight urge to play it for a LONG time.
Diablo 3.....it's good enough as is, even with all of it's issues, to have replayability and interest from me after almost two years and 1,500 hours of in-game play. Not a bad accomplishment for such a demonized dev team.
Is using the word "demonized" while describing the D3 dev team a pun? Not sure. Really really not sure.

@RasAlgethi24 do you actually have the RoS beta? if so, how do the skills feel as far as damage compared to other classes? also, how are WDs getting health back these days with the lack of LS? it seems only acid cloud and plague of toads are the only skills that proc LoH, though i could be wrong there.Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura

how does everyone feel about them dropping more damage off of skills, and the recent changes to honored guest and spiritual attunement? i don't see alot of videos of WDs for RoS... are they really that strong? i'm noticing a bunch of buffs to the other classes damage on skills but they keep knockin the numbers back for WDs... thoughts?Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura

i'm not sure what it is you're saying here. the 0 dog build wasn't broken, it was intended, otherwise it wouldn't have been possible. also, you can only do the build with a "specific legendary or two" already... therefore i'm confused because your thoughts are contradicting themselves... there are no broken game mechanics at work here, just a simple application of the appropriate gearing and skill build to create a powerful buildQuote from Rasako
sounds like the guy is just here whining like a bitch and doesn't even realize that the build has just changed and may require a specific legendary or two to pull off instead of cheesing it and abusing broken game mechanics. working as intended imo
