    as long as one of the properties is: Replenishes Quantity.

    If, IF there were rare/uniques bolts and arrows I can almost guarantee that you'd plop it on your weapon and it would never run out. I can't imagine the pains of finding more unique/rare bolts allllll the time.

    Quote from "Arbedark" »
    Welcome to Diablo 2...

    This is exactly how rares are already.

    The only slots where rares can't compete are Body Armour and Shield, for every other slot rares can be the best in the game, if they spawn with the correct mods of course.

    I disagree.

    Yes, for certain classes a rare can be used for certain spots such as a trapsin using a +2skill +3ls claw, but a barbarian wouldn't do that. Neither would a paladin or an amazon. In most cases its doubtful that a rare will be your item.

    In very specific cases yes, rares are used and even magic such as the +skill, fcr, 2os tiaras.

    I want it like classic D2 where you could find a range of rares tha were better, not just the top .01% of rares that need every mod just so.

    Other than it not being out yet and we haven't had a second huge update?

    I'd say with what I know, corpses disappearing.

    I'm sure I'll change that opinion depending on how development goes. I'd love to see rares like in classic D2 be more powerful than uniques in the end game.

    Battlemage!

    Sorry, but that thing was such an ass kicker in WoW.

    I made my pvp mage with around 12.5k hp in season 1, but I couldn't manage to possess the power of one of them.

    "#3 - Diablo 2 CLASSIC "Yellow" Flavored items

    It was an utter shame to see these items goto crap when Lord of Destruction came out. These were by far one of the main reasons for me to go magic finding, and actually have FUN while doing it for hours, days, and weeks on end. I am not exactly sure what changed technically from classic yellows to expansion yellows but whatever it was, was not a good change. I think too many prefixes and suffixes got added into the mix, some worthless prefixes and suffixes got added, some combinations of prefixes and suffixes that should not be allowed were allowed, or just all of the above.

    The bottom line is, when LOD came out, yellow/rare items ceased to be of any real value, and it was a real shame because they were the most unique items in the game, probably of any game! These are the items that made people envious over another character. When you would see a Barbarian with AN AWESOME-UNIQUE-ONE-OF-A-KIND RARE/YELLOW executioner sword/lance, or you would see an awesome gothic bow, or a DUAL LEECH RING, and no one else in the world had it! And this one person that had it wouldn't trade it for all the SOJS in the world...It was inspiring! and truly TREASURE! It made you green with jealousy so you would immediately go out magic finding for hours where the person said it dropped HOPING, HOPING, waiting, and waiting with anticipation that it or something like it would drop, and most of the time it wouldn't or maybe you would end up finding something equally awesome or for another class. These Diablo 2 Classic rares were unique, one of a kind, and oh so fun to go hunting for.

    When Lord of Destruction came out pretty much EVERY new yellow that dropped was crap and all the craze was now about uniques (Gold colored) that every single person could have and look the same in, set items, uber gemmed/runed items etc. Don't get me wrong, all those items are fun too, but nothing beat that feeling of having an AWESOME RARE that was useful and people envied you for and spent their own time trying to find its equal or better.

    People like having the thought in their head that when they go out to magic find they could possibly get lucky and find an item that nobody in the whole world has, and it's unique and their the only person with an item exactly like it and that it is extremely useful to some build, be it a cookie cutter build or a crazy build.

    It's not much fun to go magic finding if you already know that whatever drops someone or thousands already have it, and you are going to look almost the exact same as them once you min/max your build. This is kind of what killed the fun in magic finding for me, knowing that all the rares I found would be crap and the stuff that was useful, well..hundreds of thousands of people also had access too and already had.

    Bring back the old Diablo 2 Classic rare in Diablo 3. Magic finding and overall game play is so much more fun when you know you can get lucky and find the right amount of stats/modifiers on an item to make people jealous and give them motivation and hope to go out and find their own unique treasure to compete with yours."

    I couldn't agree more. I want to see rares become an ultimate end game. For example, lets say your average rare is worse than the average unique, but you could have some rares eventually topple the uniques from GG items.

    Take a look at his whole thread its a good read even if I didn't care much about music and character voices.

    They want D3 to be playable by most people, so I'm going to go out on a limb and say if your computer was purchased after D2 was released and you didn't completely skimp you'll be fine.

    The demands on your computer should be much less than games like WoW. Good thing, because I don't want to get a gfx card. I do love my 4gb of ram... well if Vista didnt eat up a good 1.2 or so.

    Eh, I could deal with it, but I'd prefer maybe we had certain skills for certain situations to mix up usage of skills/spells rather than forcing it in a combo system where spell a led to spell b being usable then whoa! spell c.

    posted a message on PvP Still a Work in Progress - Ideas
    I'm hoping that it becomes more involved like the pve battles we saw. Generally, pots weren't a pvp issue, but everything seems to be a 1hit kill or a 2 hit kill with crazy poison damage.

    I hope they keep such an array of specs though, especially things like auradins being a spec developed from gear.

    Zombies picking up the limbs you chopped off and using them as weapons.

    That along with those A4 monsters that ate bodies and spit them at you. I'd love to see a more graphic version of that.

    posted a message on Unique items should be a lot rarer
    Quote from name="Elfen Lied" »
    I like collecting runes and gems and putting them into items. And wouldn't mind seeing it again.

    I hated how 1.11 rune words were so insanely powerful that all other items were shit compared to them. A single item could be more powerful than an entire set of 6 or 7 items, even one that added +5 to all skills when you pieced it all together. That is just stupid. No single item should be more powerful than 6 items combined.

    Agreed. I like the idea of runewords, just not them being crazy overpowered like in D2.

    Maybe you could limit it like you could games in D2. Say, only people within 5 levels of mine can join and a max of however many. Then teams could be formed if needed, uneven if necessary.
