im sorry to tell you that none of those things increase like they did in D2.
the ONLY thing that changes from solo to co-op is monster HP and monster Damage. that is all. the drops, chance of drops, amount of monsters and gold do not increase at all. it was made this way to avoid making co-op the end-all for item hunting.
also unless you have a group of friends to play with, playing solo will yield better farming because your MF/GF isnt averaged out between the group and you'd be able to kill faster since monster hp is increased by 110% PER person who joins in Inferno and damage by 15% per person also. (it was 6.25% dmg increase in Diablo 2 per person)

I got in the beta just after it was moved to later level.
Is it true that it also provides a movement speed buff while it's active? I've heard numerous people mention it before but the tooltip doesn't mention anything about a speed increase. If so, how much is the increase?
Also, could you cast physical realm (or spirit realm spells) while you were in the spirit world?
yes. it does in fact grant you extra speed. sometimes i would use it just to move a little faster through hallways and such that had no mobs. although how much speed is beyond me, it doesnt seem like a lot. maybe like a ~40% boost or something for 2 seconds isnt much but it helps get out of those sticky situations even faster to make those 2 seconds really count

With some information out may or maynot be correct about how hard monsters hit in Inferno will WD pets still be viable?
JayWilson:Yes, pets scale pretty well in inferno. You do have to refresh them, but they are useful for tanking mobs
So, all we have to be concerned about is pets accidentally pulling in mobs. I'm sure Blizzard has this one figured out, be pretty glaring omission otherwise.
wow awesome. this makes me feel A LOT better about them. esp if you get the 3 trinity of passives to keep them alive. jungle fort Zhandler Bad med

huh? how on earth are you 'spamming' those CD skills when it takes MINUTES to kill mobs in inferno? yes even regular mobs. and champions/rares will take even longer so since your not killing anything your CDs wont be reduced at all in the timeframe that your attacking. no idea how your thinking you will be able to kill inferno mobs in seconds. so you wont be able to spam any of those CC's or escapes. you can CC once and escape ONCE everytime the CD is up, no sooner since you wont be killing in less than the CD's are.
If it takes you minutes to kill normal mobs... you need to gear up. The game is designed to be a jump-in-and-play sorta thing, you will not need to play for hours to reach the next stage in your quest line.
He probably got the idea from watching videos online/doing theorycrafting/analyzing game design.
Stop hatin' wishedhehadbeta.
lol.... so WHY would it take a long time to beat inferno if you can kill mobs so fast? simple, you WONT. if you watch the videos of inferno you'll see the characters hacking away over and over and over and nothing dying. im nevar hatin, just trying to assist people in their wrong way of thinking. even with the absolute best gear in the game you wont hack through mobs like you can in normal.

You noticed how slow zombies are? Kitting them will be like a piece of cake. It won't matter much if i got those skills on CD or not. It will definitely work at least for act 1. Even if it takes me a few minutes more to beat mobs, in the end, i will make up lost time when my CD's will be reduced and i will be spamming those bad ass skills.
you do realize their aggressiveness and speed and abilities will increase 10 fold in inferno right dude? and escapes doesnt = killing faster. you dont put much thought or logical strategy into your builds ive noticed. you just think about how the abilities work and not how mobs will react and how hard they will be/how long it takes to kill them, its very clear from the builds youve made. dont want to turn this into a flame fest im actually being sincere. there are many strategies that just plain wont work in inferno at all. the grave injustice/petless WD being one of them

Since creature AIs improve in Inferno, so might pets'.
random out of no where speculation with absolutely nothing to indicate it please. and make that a double.
perhaps we get giant flying birds as pets in inferno? u know, just cuz i want one so it could happen

I will be one of the ones who disappears. I may still come by occasionally, but I know from my past I generally stop visiting game websites once the game is released. There may be a few things I look up here after the game, but I doubt I will post at all after release.
ya pretty much the same besides a few build threads. i never visited forums until this one. when i became completely bored of WoW and obsessed with D3. i dont see any need to post about the game if i have it to play, lol

Another thing is, what about upgrading the jeweler, if your interested in gems in Inferno, though I think it might be important to ensure your survival. And your forgetting craft costs, which can range from 40k to even over a 100k per item, and then you'll need to keep crafting to get the stats you want. I'm hoping gold will be very scarce, so it'll at least have value, unlike D2.
im not going to try and craft the perfect gear for my first playthrough, or even try for high rolls. just craft a couple of each at the most, or even just one of each to get some decent gear so the first playthrough wont be impossible. ill be stacking pure damage and xp gear from normal through nightmare then switch to defensive stats from hell onward. obviously if some gear rolls all crap/useless stats id have to keep crafting.
(yea yea bla bla "omfg if u think u wont need defensive gear in nightmare your high", please... you didnt need it in D2 u wont need it in D3, overestimating hell and inferno is one thing but nightmare is just "normal mode" while normal is "easy mode")

Jun 12, 2012Burzghash posted a message on Power for money ? Is that ok with the D3 Community?Some things to note:Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
1. Paying real money for items is going to happen, whether Blizzard officially sanctions it, or not. Through the RMAH, players can at least be guaranteed a safe, expedited experience.
2. 'Pay 2 Win' means nothing in the context of D3. Who are you paying to win over? Diablo? Is Diablo going to be mad that you're buying items to kick his ass harder? Is it Tyrael? Is Tyrael offended that you have besmirched your honor by spending real money for items?
3. PvP will feature automated matchmaking. You will only ever be matched against people of approximately your same gear level, with an internal ELO rating matching you against players of comparable skill. If you buy power, you'll simply be matched against more powerful people. Completely negating any claims of 'pay 2 win'.
For some games, involving real money is an actual detriment, which has the potential to harm gameplay and fun. Diablo 3 is not one of those games.
Jun 12, 2012If blizzard does this often enough... it won't be that bad. They just need to ban gold sellers before they hit $60 earned back. Even if they are able to sell enough to earn $55... eventually it will become unprofitable when they keep getting banned.Posted in: News & Announcements

While I kept coming to Diablo 2 over many years, Diablo 3 got boring really quickly.
I understand that this game is still ok for WoW players. The game was, after all, made by developers who have not worked on previous Diablo games. But for me who grew really tired of WoW over so many years, this is not ok.
It's just way too much like WoW. You rush to lvl 60 then it becomes endless farm for gear.
There's not even enough variation. For example the spider cave in Act 1, there are only 4 variations of that map. They call that random generating maps? Pathetic.
Anyone in EU wanna buy a CE with 3 lvl 60s?
QQ more. If you don't like it get off our forums. Really why do you think we give a shit about your opinion. You sure as hell wouldn't give a shit about mine. So keep it to yourself and uninstall and remove yourself from the forums.
Save me the headache of ever having to read another shitty post. So terrible in fact i responded just to say this.
Jun 9, 2012We? you mean the small minority that posts on forums while the real majority is actually playing the game?Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
If d3 was almost exactly like d2, people would complain that nothing changed. People would complain no matter what.
I call it COD syndrome. Call of duty modern warfare series started out with everyone loving it, then mw2 came and people complained about the similarities and some differences, then black ops, and people complained that it was too similar, then mw3 came and people further complained that it was too similar.
The point is that even if a game is similar to its popular predecessor, people will complain about lack of changes.
TL:DR People will complain whether it was exactly like d2 or 100 percent different.
