You say that barbarians can't use magic; but they can. They can infuse their weapons with magic (the Berserk skill). Some of them use druidic powers. At least one of them uses necromancy, who also uses a druidic ability. Maybe not all of them can, but we know some does. And we know all of these from Diablo 2. You know, the game that introduced the barbarian race into the lore. Before you call people "blind", you could have done some research before saying that barbarians were not supposed to be magic users.Posted in: News & Announcements

Does the concept of classe archetypes ring any bells?
Am I actually arguing with actual people about this? This is surreal.
There was a barbarian who can summon demons and explode their corpses. He also used a druid spell (Arctic Blast). His name was Nihlatak. There were other barbarians (council of elders) who casted a druid spell to shield Harrogath. Does these still in your classe archetypes? Druids can materialize hundred of pounds of matter above the ground, it was the Armageddon spell in Diablo 2. If some barbarians are capable of casting druid spells, why a nephalem, a race much more powerful than an ordinary human, can't?

And I think you fail to understand that the characters in Diablo 3 are not ordinary humans. They are nephalem, a race more powerful than the angels and demons; and we don't know the limits of their power. So you can't argue what the barbarian in Diablo 3 can't do, because you have no basis for that argument.Posted in: News & Announcements

There is no justification for barbarians to materialize boulders from the sky beyond "we thought it was awesome".
You guys defending this are only making the whole d3 situation more weird.
Berserk: A powerful but reckless attack that increases damage and attack rating but decreases defense rating. Attack: +100%, Magic Damage: 150%, Mana cost: 4, Recieves bonuses from Howl (10% Magic Damage per level), Shout (10% Magic Damage per level).
In Diablo 2, barbarians were able to deal magic damage and they used "mana", which is used for magic. There were also barbarian elders who managed to summon a shield around Harrogath. Nihlatak, even though he is shown as a necromancer in game, was one of the barbarian elders.
Even if we ignore these, in Diablo 3, the barbarian character can summon the first barbarians, can cause an earthquake which can freeze or burn, can pull his enemies to himself with by stomping his foot into the ground ect. And he is a descendant of the most powerful race in the world. I think we can say that, even if barbarians as a people don't use magic (and they can, see above), that doesn't mean barbarian in Diablo 3 won't too, as he is a nephalem.

Demon hunters can shoot balls of lightning from their bows which electrocutes everything in their path, but it doesn't effect his/her friends even though they wear heavy metal armor. Right. Ok.

You know Diablo 2, good. And you know closed battle.net, also good. Then you should also know that closed beta supposed to prevent hacks, cheats, and dupes happening. You should also know that it didn't. What happened is, people duped items, hacked items, used cheats like maphack, even tranferred their open battle.net characters to closed battle.net after a ladder reset. I don't know how they did that, but they did that and ruined online experience for so many people.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Now come 2013, Diablo 3's console version has an offline mode. And do you know what happened? Hacked and duped items. Again, people managed to play with game's files and managed to alter online play. But it doesn't, we have seen it on 2000's, and we see it now.
Imagine that you are playing happily with two of your friends, and opened the game to public for the XP/MF bonus. Then someone with a 100% movement speed and 1billion dps guy joined your game, and started clearing every single area without you. Then called you all noob and leaved. Would this be fun? (In before telling us not to open it to public: Why should we punished if some people abuse the game? Isn't the people stealing our fun are to blame? ("The thief was not to blame at all?" as said in my country.))
Let's say you are staying clean, no dupes ect. Then a guy joins your game and you play together for some time. When you return to the town, he drops a weapon which will give a huge bonus to you (but clearly not hacked) and tells you he doesn't needs it so you can take it. Would you? How would you know if it is duped or not? If you take the item, can you say you are clean after that moment?
Now you ask for an offline mode for Diablo 3. Even though we have two examples of how this can ruin online play for whole community, do you still want it? Can't you see why people defending online-only requirement? Blizzard's only reason can be DRM, we can't know that; however, we can see that it also benefits us, the players.

[Spoiler] Reaper of Souls Secret Level, New Demon Hunter Visual Tier, Over 140 Legendary Screenshotsposted a message onGold will still be used for unsocketing gems, enchanting etc. Right now, unsocketing marquize gems still costs 5 millilon gold, and everytime you enchant the same item, it costs more and more. So we will want gold.Posted in: News & Announcements
Bounties have nice gold rewards, and as far as I remember, rewards from quests are also increased (but that was from Gamescom, it might have changed and needs confirmation). And even though you can't sell legendaries, you can still sell rares or crafting materials.

Toughness is introduced so you won't have to know the calculation for ehp or use any ehp calculator. You can still check your resistances or armor from the "Details" tab.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

And that was their intention: destroying cheesy builds. You can still use CMWW if you want; you just won't be able to perma-freeze anymore, which trivializes even the most difficult encounters. And now, people who hates or got sick of CMWW can actually use other skills and won't be pigeon-holed into one skill set. Wasn't that something pretty much everyone wants?Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

If this is a serious poll, why there isn't a "no" option?Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Secondly, Diablo EULA strictly says that selling stuff outside the game is illegal. So every transaction done with real money on your site is against the agreement and may result in temporary or permanent ban.
And what is your plan in case of scams? I understand that the trade will be done in the game, so trading with gold will pretty much secure; however, when real money is involved, the buyer might not pay the price to the seller after he/she gets the item. What will you do in this case as the service provider?
