    Quote from "NuZZ" »
    I liked the minigame puzzle of configuring space for your items...

    Everything has to be easier for the casual gamer! :mad:


    Grid based inventory, ffa loot, permanent character stat choices... these are the things that made Diablo 2 such a great and open game, anyone who played Diablo before the "modern RPGs lol" will agree with that.

    posted a message on The Good the Bad and the Ugly
    Post here one good thing so far you've seen in Diablo, one bad thing you'd like to see changed, and one ugly thing with Diablo (this could be good or bad, example: omg rainbow! ew)

    I'll go first.

    Good:
    The same top down gameplay with a few added features like health orbs.

    I think the way they've implemented the 3D is acceptable and could quite possibly be excellent.


    Bad:
    Any hint of respeccing of characters will burninate this game :( I think someone stated the devs seemed indifferent towards the threat this poses.

    I want to have a Javazon a Dex-Bowzon/Vita-Bowzon etc, not just a Zon... if this is the case I will be done with the game after making 5 characters, why make the game so pointless and linear? This isn't WoW, I want variety.


    Ugly:
    The cinematic death moves (ripping the barbarian in half) looks awesome, but they must be careful with this feature as it could go either way.

    Quote from "Rift" »
    Synergies which were introduced in patch 1.10 for DII were a particularly awesome addition to the game.

    No :(

    They completely pigeon holed you into being "the fire sorc" or "the lightning sorc"

    There were great hybrid builds back in the day, like orb/TS or orb/Hydra or the infamous monster murdering Nova build sorc with fire spells to kill lightning immune mobs.

    The way the game is configured now you MUST get all the lightning synergies to be useful, and many many many of the spells that used to be effective for sorceress (Hydra, Nova, Orb, Chain Lightning, etc) are almost completely useless.

    Every patch in Diablo 2 has brought it down a peg, the runeword additions in 1.10 were nice even though they should have made droprates a bit higher and tried to combat duping.


    Forcing the entire tree to work around a single spell like "Blizzard" or "Lightning" completely detracts from being a cold sorceress.

    Cold should not = Blizzard, it should = any combination of spells you wish to mash together into your playstyle.

    If anyone had any doubts I think that completely clears it up :)


    Sorry if this has been posted before, didn't seem to catch it anywhere.

    posted a message on Looting System
    I can't believe the amount of carebear in this thread.


    Diablo is about items, it's about anarchy, it's about being the top dog.

    This is WoW's loot system, this is one of the most fundamental flaws they could have made second only to a 3rd person MMO-esque view system.


    Screw the pretty colors and bunnies and rainbows, I'll take all of that in a second if it means we get to play Diablo and not some carebear "everyone wins" game.

    posted a message on D3 Graphics
    If anyone responds with "I wish it had the WoW 3rd person perspective" I will murder you.


    The graphics look great, I hope they tone down the color a bit though like the option says with a redo and up poly count a bit.

    Also the textures are a bit bland, but that is probably still in the works.

    It is possible that Dictionary.com uses the most searched term from the previous 12 hours or something to come up with the word of the day.

    We all know every dufus on a Diablo forum has been searching that term repeatedly today :)

    Last night the d3-general was the only one giving an error message, d4-general and d5-general were not... I tested them myself.

    posted a message on Poll: Thing you Wish most for D3 to have
    Am I the only one who would be appalled if they made D3 3rd person 3D... just like WoW?

    Or are there any people out there who still want the top down fast action birds eye view game that I remember with such love...


    That is my greatest fear, that Diablo 3 becomes WoW 2.0, it scares the hell out of me.

    posted a message on What's the first thing you would do if D3 is announced at WWI?
    I'm pretty sure I would knock over my chair as I leap screaming into the air, upon smashing my head on the ceiling I would fall to the ground. My next instinct would be to grab my phone and call my D2 buddies and scream once again.

    After all of this, and convincing my family to not call the paramedics I would make plans for a "Diablo 3 Shelter" not too dissimilar from a bomb shelter in which I will live the first 6 months of Diablo 3 without leaving.


    Then I'd play the waiting game.. :)
