Hello, Dfans(and potential Blizzard lurkers)! With the new Dev Blog Post I started thinking of the UI visualization of all the stats and bonuses that will be in the game. What I want to see from D4 is a mix between D2 & D3. From D2 I want to be able to tell how much damage my selected skill actually does and from D3 I want the lengthy list of all available bonuses. But I think this could be taken a step further. We should be able to minimize/hide and reorder some of the bonuses or even categories; on top of that I think that a "Favorites" tag is going to be extremely useful if you wish to keep easy track of specific bonuses from various categories.
Here are some screen shots to refresh your memory:
My mock-up for D4: https://i.imgur.com/Svrislh.png Here you can see how every skills has damage/cs/duration also listed and those numbers are updated accordingly depending on your items and selected stats.
What are your thoughts? Personally, I think the current Attack/Defense is way too bland. I see from the screenshot
honestly i like this idea. BUT, i feel like blizzard is going the lazy-casual route and "dumbing down" stats in general instead of expanding on them. this really frustrated me with the update and i REALLY hope it changes before release. Give us back complicated stats! We aren't kids! the game is called "devil" ffs. lol
PS. i didn't realize these forums are mostly 'dead'. But the Blizzard D3 forums are extremely active with discussion of D4. you should copy-paste this there for more feedback. Here you might get 2-3 comments over a month lol.
ya i remember too man. i came to this website everyday and had tons of conversations about D3 years before it came out. This was THE site to visit for any diablo related news, even more so than blizzard's own website. Now its the opposite. This forum (as a whole) is 99% dead and blizzards D3 forum is constantly blowing up with D4 conversations and news.
I definitely prefer this website's feel and layout to blizzards. but if you want to actually talk with a bunch of people, this isn't the place anymore and won't be again. The creators of the site clearly stopped caring about growth a long time ago and are just keeping this site alive on life-support. lol
