you know... maybe el'druin doesn't work anymore since he took up post as archangel of wisdom? perhaps thats why he couldn't harm Malthael, and maybe since it's just wisdom now it can't harm angels or somethin?Posted in: Lore & Storyline

come adventure mode, you won't need to worry about gold... monsters drop it, whites turn into gold piles sometimes, and otherwise doing bounties / quests will yield enough to keep you going. i believe it was the OP that said it'll just come down to mats. personally, i started stocking mats after i hit Plvl100 some months ago.. i mean it doesn't seem like much, but i got like 6500 of both tears and exquisite essence. if anything, invest gold into that. the only thing that will really suck to get is the new stuff. but enough time will go by that you can actually acquire enough. i expect that RoS will take up a lot of my time once it launches. i expect i'll be collecting blues again until i get at least 1000-2000 of the new magic crafting reagent.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

lmao. "how my stash actually looks" almost made me shit my pants as i was just letting out a fart, TMI, i know, but i wanted you to know that. i've found that all the items i find are good in some way, but i know that even though some of the numbers are green, i'm losing too much from something else, whether it be CC or CD, or just a good roll on my old item that i just can't replace... i've since scrapped an insane amount of items from my stash, that hurt, but, the way i look at it is come RoS, everything you own is going to be trash, once level 70 gear starts to drop. i understand it hurts to get rid of the stuff, but everything you DON'T NEED or DON'T USE ANYMORE, just scrap. i have what, like 2 full rows clear now? and i still have at least 2 or 3 columns on a few of my less played characters stacked up. it does suck, i'm not entirely sure 1 more tab is gonna cut it, to be honest.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

if you want to collect a lot of common debris, the best thing for you to do is get your mind out of the ZPOOOOOOOOOOMBBBBBGHHGG SUPER FAST RUNSSZZOBZBZ!!! that isn't helpful anymore. that being said, the quickest way i've found is to just play through an act, or at least take your time while clearing areas to look for weapon and armor racks. they removed the chance for them to be legendary drop spots, but they do drop the occasion rare. the reason i say use them, is because they drop white and gray items. salvage these items, and get anywhere from 7-10 common debris per item. a few spots i've found that had an abundance of these racks are: halls of agony in act 1, terminus areas in act 2, battlements / stonefort in act 3, and mostly anywhere in act 4. happy huntingPosted in: Diablo III General Discussion

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.
