Sep 8, 2010i tend to love casters as well, but i like to save the best for last.Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands
so assuming the 5th class does indeed use a bow, my play order will be:
>--monk (gnarly fella, but appears difficult to use with the assassin-like combos),
>--witch doctor (i know i'm contradicting myself here since he's a caster, but i'm not feelin' him),
>--5th class (can't wait to finally see what it is!),
>--wizard (love the character, hate the name! i'm used to a wizard being a geriatric sage).
Aug 24, 2010i think pets are an awesome idea, although i'm sure many people disagree.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
only thing is i would prefer it as a main trait of a specific class as opposed to a mandatory feature for everyone.
in neverwinter nights 2, many of the classes had minions/familiars/pets and it just took the glory out of having one.
i think hirelings are better in that sense because it feels as though you're simply adventuring with another player and the uniqueness of certain classes (i.e. the witch doctor and possible "hunter") are preserved.
Aug 23, 2010i like your idea of "adrenaline" where the character's proximity to enemies governs the rate of regeneration. up until now the whole point of a ranged class is to stay as far away from enemies as possible so this means that the player will have to manoevre back and forth from their enemies if they want to execute more powerful skills. it makes for an interesting and unique style of gameplay.Posted in: Unannounced Class
also the fact that an increasing adrenaline globe has the added advantage of warning the player that enemies are nearby, and represents the heightened senses that nature/range themed classes innately have.
i think it would be cool if the final class has a "pet." having one powerful companion is a great contrast to the witch doctor who has multiple weaker ones.
Aug 23, 2010to be honest i don't really like the idea of health globes. it reminds me of the multi-platform game "marvel: ultimate alliance" where life and energy crystals would automatically fly from a vanquished enemy into the nearest character.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
i kind of felt stunted in between battles when i didn't have enough health or energy.
potions may be lame, but i'm sure going to miss them! i don't like the idea of not having direct control of when to replenish health/resources for my character.
Aug 23, 2010this came to me in a dream and i think it was inspired by the word "talisman" which came up in an interview with jay wilson.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
this is a late-game quest and involves the player obtaining a mysterious amulet from an npc. it could be anybody but lets say it's a chick. she doesn't know much about the amulet herself, but says that her husband received it from a strange mystic who told him that it would protect him on a mission - which turns out to be the very same quest the player is charged with.
she recounts that her husband dismissed the mystic's advice as the amulet only bestowed minor enchantments and warns that this arrogance resulted in her husband's demise.
for all intents and purposes i'll say the object of the quest is to locate and destroy a boss deep in the wilderness (or dungeon or whatever). the enemies in this area turn out to be exceptionally strong as they are corrupted by an unknown power. fortunately the player is accompanied by a large group of npcs who have also ventured on the quest and help to destroy the hordes of super-powered creatures.
the players themselves will be reluctant to equip the amulet as it has extremely low stats (possibly only adding +1 life) and it would mean sacrificing a more powerful amulet that would undoubtedly be available in the late game. plus the fact that the enemies are more powerful so you'd be tempted to wear only the best gear.
before the player approaches the boss's lair with the group of npcs, s/he will be prompted to equip the amulet if s/he hasn't done so already. once they're in the lair they'll see the boss with a group of cultists or other spellcasters performing a weird ritual. the boss will exclaim something like "ah, more puppets for the show" (lame, i know lol) in a creepy and ominous manner. suddenly all the friendly units are possessed and turn into hostile enemy units - the amulet having protected the player from corruption. our character will then be forced to destroy everyone, including the boss on their own.
now this is where it could go two ways. the dark energy that corrupts the npcs could suddenly unleash a whole lot of cool buffs from the amulet, increasing damage output, life and resistences (to make up for the empowered enemies) and disintegrate once all the enemies are dead. or it could simply remain a dud and the ensuing battle would be more challenging and fun for our characters. which of the two do you guys reckon would be better?
any thoughts? has this been done before? i wouldn't know because i don't play any other rpgs outside of diablo ii: lod and final fantasy.
