Can't recall if it was a tweet from Josh or the blog post he made. But everyone knows this O.o Plus like every time on the official forums is asked what patch 1.09 will have or what will it contain they always start their comment with something like: "We do not yet have any information that we can share about future patches after patch 1.0.8"
I'm not trying to be argumentative here but....how the hell did you extrapolate "everyone knows this" from innocuous statements like "We do not yet have any information"?
Though I am not disagreeing, many of their statements in this regard have been eluding toward itemization being (potentially) only inclusive only with the xpac.
"It's true that we haven't announced any major content patches, but I wouldn't say that we're not working on anything. We have mentioned several times that we're working on itemization, updating the Paragon system, the Mystic and more."
I wonder how that Paragon allocation system will work. On the screen, points are allocated to STR, but what if you play INT classes as well. Common sense would be that this allocation is character-based...
Stat allocation means that you will get to choose on which attribute you want to spend your stat points on.
I'm excited. I was not a fan of the D2 Paladin but I think the Crusader looks interesting enough. Would love to hear more about the Loot Runs and enchanting features as well. All in all I like what I see so far.
We've heard about a hundred times now that D3 is not meant to become any competitive, e-sports like game, so if you're waiting for that, please move on. I got what I wanted; self-found would've been nice but seriously, just because I got only 9 out of 10 things from my x-mas wish list, I'm not gonna kill Santa.
Except not everyone's x-mas list is the same.
I can bet you there's a lot of people out there that are waiting for more than a loot/power reset to get them to buy the expansion and invest a large amount of hours into it.
Blizzard never ruled out the ladder, nor have they claimed that there will never be a competitive side to D3. E-sports is not the only way to keep the community thriving, and I'm hoping that they will be addressing this at Blizzcon, with more details about the end game content that they have planned for us.
With that being said, new Paragon changes are awesome! There seems to be more than one way to customize your stats and character with it. Really a great and welcome addition.
Paladin was one of my favorite classes in D2, and I love to play a shield wielding character, so win-win with the Crusader. I hoped for the Druid but he would simply not fit the tone of the expansion. The dark, gothic atmosphere returns to Diablo, and that's a big, big plus.
Also, this new, seamless transition between areas that they've shown is quite great. I'm still hoping that we will see the quest system redesign, with actual rewards, meaningful random quests and other cool stuff. If they announce a couple more interesting features like a no story mode and porting through the acts the game will sure be worth the 40$.
