Quote fromI get scared when i see your avatar. Where is that from?
The movie Tetsuo: The Iron Man. It's from a scene where the dude's penis has just turned into a power drill.

Damn, you know everything.
Quote from "rrock54" »How is d2 runewords at all relevent to d3? Runewords are in place in d2 so its viable to see more added, but not really needed.
Quote from "in0luck" »Nonsense, manual stat enables pally to play differently, without it there would be no hammerdin, smiter etc, and hammerdin have to adjust their stat for different purpose, not every hammerdin does baal run all day. As for the items, I agree runewords ruin the game, but everyone has the same item is not caused by having the same stat, its because they made runeword ridiculous overpower compare to unique.
Quote from "Ferret" »Except for this: Log on to B.Net right now. Wait until you have 5 Hammerdins in game (Takes about 5-30 second, so be patient). Now ask them... what weapon are they using. Four will say Flail Hoto, and the fifth will say hes getting one too when he can afford it. Ask again, this time what armor they have... all of them will tell you they're using AP Enigma, except for one MP Enigma. Hello item customization? Much appraised and hardly seen.
Now ask them about skills they invested in, I will shit a brick if one is out of the ordinary, not to mention he will immediatley get mowed down by the others and told to remake the character.
As for stats, seeing as they all have similar gear and skills, this one won't be hard to figure out.
Now can anyone point out the flaw we have here, the main reason why there is no need for this so-called customization? They've all done the same thing! Congratulate every single one of them now to let them know they have all achieved exemplary uniqueness compared to the other thousands of Hammerdins.
Here's more food for thought: this whole thing will probably never happen. The uniqueness of each character allows them all to use the same botting programs with the same results, so you won't get an answer from them. At the end of the day they all notice they have leveled without playing, and utterly convinced that it was their true talent at this game and their perserverence, the don't even say thank you to the damn computer programs that actually did all the work for them. :mad:
How's that for a slice of uniqueness? So many options to do it different from everyone else, a whole 510 statpoints, or chances, to set yourself apart from the rest, and yet everyone will have nearly identical stats.
Yet we have the same group of people lament over the loss of the unique runewords that were so unique that nearly every character had the same weapons, when Runewords were one of the reasons the whole act of statting a character became redundant. Thanks to Runewords, you can now even choose to make a character with only Vitality stated, that's awesome, and I am sure this will exceed any other player's idea of how to set up a character by far.
I don't understand some of you claiming to have played so much D2 without realizing this: You create a character, get the items and do BASIC MATH to figure out how much of what stat you need to get your gear on and have decent life. The whole system is so basic that friends and me actually never had to collect stats until 75 and bug character equipment, we did that off the top of our heads as we were leveling.
D2 was truly unique. Not the way that everyone stated the same points and skills, and not by making everyone aim for the same gear. D2 was unique because it attracted so many different people for so long and was fun to play, but how much fun did that Pally over there have dying in Baalruns until 75 have? Not much, until he was finally able to stat the minimum amount of points to be just like every other Paladin.
Quote from "Kenzai" »Darkness is a tiny part of the whole thing but however... I dont think anyone wants to start a graphic debate, right?
Im personally fine with the amount of darkness.
Quote from "TheBloody-Nine" »I'd say they have listened a lot to the petition signers. Have you seen the wiz trailer? It's dark!
+darkness and candle-/torchlight
And the wiz spells look amazing. Question is, who will roll any other class when every other skill we've seen so far is dwarfed by what the wiz showed off?
