Haha. OP here.
By "A couple drinks", I meant "I am loaded as hell". Appologies for that. I don't think I've ever drunk posted before in my life. Yikes.
Thanks for responding anyway, fellows.
Those quest rewards were meant to be a one-time permenant increase (like the +30 to life quest in D2). Just little, but worthwhile, rewards that make you want to go back and do quests you may have missed. Like some of you pointed out; as it stands now there is 100% no reason to do a quest EVER. Which surely doesn't add to the overall D3 experience.
I don't really (and have never really...) had an opinion on the darkness/ whatever in D3. In my opinion D1 was the only entry in the series that achieved perfect hell-like atmosphere. But I have never played WoW, so I guess those who have might be more intune with similarities...
Hierophant, your break down of class-specific items was spot on. Couldnt agree more.

Thanks for responding, but that is exactly the unproductive responce I would like to avoid in this thread. Serious, what does that accomplish?Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
The Game lacks a bit of soul and substance, but I think it is slowly improving with each patch.
What would you REALLY like to see added into the game? Dead babies on spikes and hung off gallows (Diablo 1 style) isn't going to make the core machanics of this game any more entertaining and enduring....is it?

(Defining worthless attributes on a legendary meaning; Strength being rolled on a Wizard Only helmet/ off hand. It is absolutely inraging to see such things roll on these extremely rare items and instantly makes them almost completely useless. Surely this can be prevented/ waaay less likely? I really don't see the purpose of it continueing to exist.)Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

This is an honest request after months of playing Diablo 3.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I have been playing/ loving the Diablo series since by dad bought a Diablo I demo CD rom at a grocery store a million years ago.
When I saw the Diablo 3 trailer, I bought a brand new computer to support it. Two computers later, Diablo 3 was released, and I have been playing it on and off since with very mixed feelings.
One thing that I feel has not been brought up very often is the idea of reward for quests completed. I know comparing Diablo 3 to Diablo 2 is a common occurance, and often to dubious conclusions, but regardless of that; making quests worth doing is something very much worth looking into.
Even a long quest that resulted in a one time reward of (for example)":
-A 1% increase to attack speed?
-A 1% increase to crit. chance?
-A 5% inrease to crit. dmg?
-A +10 point increase to a attribute of the players choosing?
-A 1-10% chance of a unique/ set item being rewarded?
-A random gem drop (like hellforge in D2)?
SOMETHING to make quests worth doing? SOMETHING to make the game feel rewarding.
Which brings me to another point of interest;
Ledgendaries. Another controversial, but integral subject.
I (and I think most people) feel that finding a legendary item should be a rewarding prospect. However, the current system with all it's random rolls and luck result in (in my experience) something along the lines of a 1 in 100 chance of a legendary being even remotely useful/ valueable. 1 in 100 being a generous ratio.
perhaps the rolls could be tightened up a bit to SLIGHTLY work in the players favor of a Ledgendary item to be worth the effort of hunting it? A slightly higher chance toward worthwhile attributes as opposed to useless ones? The same idea should go for crafting (If an alternative to the GAH/RMAH is sought after, which I think should be).
This post/ spelling/ grammer is all over the place due to a few Friday night drinks, but I assure you (this being my first post ever...) the ideas and advice are sincere and come from someone who has loved this franchise more than any other for my entire gaming career. Just want to see it bloom into it's full potential. Thanks, if you manged to read this far!
