I want both of these games. I'm afraid to hope for anything so I'll wait til Blizzcon and believe it when I see it.

The blue warpaint is very reminiscent of scottish warpaint (famously seen in the move Braveheart) but seems like that block color style was used more for the D3 Barbarian, rather than D2. The D2 Barb looks like he is wearing something closer to viking or norse paint/tattoos. Since it might be difficult to recreate exactly what you are looking for, a nice compromise might be an enlarged rune tattooed on your forearm in blue. Then it will be recognizably Diablo, and also have that Barbarian blue warpaint style you are looking for.

Diablo at its core has always been an ARPG dungeon crawler with heavy emphasis on item hunt. It would be a risk to deviate from that original model, but the culture surrounding those kinds of games has changed. I'm hoping to see a nice heavy ARPG element with that item hunt still present, but I really want set items and legendaries to change, I want runestones, and more build customization, I want to explore more zones and meet new characters and get good character development, and I want a creepier atmosphere.
Act V Reaper of Souls was heads and tails above the vanilla game in terms of characters, exploration, writing, and spookiness, and even the new zones were really interesting and creepy. It felt more like an M rated game. I want more time to explore and flesh out zones with things to do (questing perhaps?) I don't want an MMO, but I'd like a similar kind of experience, only with single player. I guess a bit like the Witcher, tho that would lose the top-down look of a dungeon crawler.
I'd love to see less quest driven dialogue that beats us over the head with telling us where to go so much that we could go through the motions asleep. Having to think for even 5 seconds about where we are, what we're looking for, and where we should be going would be an improvement. Diablo 2 never had a blinking yellow circle on the minimap telling you exactly where you needed to go. D3 was a little too linear with leading you through campaign by the nose. Also bosses were always too easy, normal mode was too easy. I think there was too much emphasis on making the game too accessible for new players. People aren't stupid, they can learn new things without it being dumbed down.
I'd be incredibly disappointed if the nephalem became an evil character, and I'd also be incredibly disappointed if everything was retconned. I LIKE the characters, I LIKE my characters, and I want them to do well. Making us choose between good and evil sounds lame tbh, because it's always been a game about maintaining the balance and fighting the minions of Hell. I don't want the characters I've grown to like to be forgotten, I just want them to be written better. I want the game to get a great lore treatment like so many of the diablo novels did.
This got a little long lol, but I'm very passionate about the characters and world, and I want to see more of it, and to see it handled well.
Edit: I personally don't much care for PVP, but I want it to be added to the game because I know a lot of people missed that. Also I think D3 still has a lot of cool end-game content that should stay, but some that needs heavy revision.

Quotes and direct reply don't seem to be working for me BUT-
I haven't played D2 in at least a year, so I see how some hints would be easy to miss, but I'm hesitant to be 100% sure about anything.
I like a lot of the possibilities brought up here: I'd love a D2 HD release, and I'd love an open world type of game, the only thing I want is for D3 to tie up its loose ends, which will hopefully be done with a DLC.
I'm cautiously optimistic, because we've been burned at every blizzcon since Reaper of Souls and Necro, but very hopeful that this time they're actually serious with some announcements lol.

That said, the only thing I would really change for the difficulties is to make it harder to reach T6, I honestly think this progression should take months and I worry about the longevity of the game when people are farming T6 first week. I don't care how people play, I don't even care if you bot all day and fill your bag with the best gear possible because it doesn't affect me, I just want the game to succeed and be popular for years because I love Diablo.

Much of D2's appeal to many players was it's 'wild west' online presentation. The lack of rules and oversight. The lack of DRM integrity. If an online game launched these days with the same sort of chaotic online structure, it would likely fail. D2 launched back in an era before many homes even had internet, or PC's for that matter. Software companies didn't understand nor appreciate how much a popular online game could be ravaged by nonchalant players and 3rd party bottom-feeders.
Much of that chaos was fun, I admit. But nowadays, a major online game IS going to have some presence of a DRM strategy. I hope more people start appreciating D3 for what it is and cease sneering at it for what it isn't.
Mar 4, 2014Not only that but from my understanding there's a lot of torment legendaries that are locked to RoS and the current torment-only legendary pool is pretty low so your bound to find repeats.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Feb 28, 2014Or you could just play the game with A a new character, or B just play the game with your current character because as you said everything will change come ROS.Buying ROS is like buying a Tabula Rasa in Diablo 3. You're resetting most of the bad choices the design team made in Vanilla and fixing them to work for you.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Twoflower : The new loot is light years ahead of Vanilla, the only real problem is the BOA and the extremely frequent Smart Drop. I haven't found a Legendary that is useful to any other class besides my wizard when on my wizard. I'd sometimes like to find some gear for my Barb too, but with the way Smart drop is working it just isn't possible which sucks. When you get ROS and start leveling through 60 you'll see that your gear becomes very useless quickly. Your damage will see a bump,yourtoughness your healing all will see a bump. Maybe you have some pretty good gear, and are just getting someshitty RNG rolls. IknowI've found a lot of useless items, but I have been able to find a few upgrades here and there. They'll come. At least it wont be500 legendaries till you see a .1 damage increase like vanilla.

As for 2.0, I'm actually having fun. Currently playing my dh/wiz til RoS for barb.
Found some bracers last night with +Area Dmg, 500 int, 300 vit and CHC.
Feb 28, 2014You talk about no long-term motivation past 20 hours, but looking at your gear you can't have played much yet. After playing 20 hours you'll see most of your gear replaced, maybe except for Unity and Skorn. It's also not raining legendaries; about 1 per hour, and while not every legendary is game-breaking, about every 2 hours I come across a legendary that lets me switch to a completely new build. If that isn't fun and long-term motivating, I don't know what is.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Yeah, you're entitled to your own opinion, but there are only 2 other people on these forums who share your opinion (brx, who is clearly nothing but a troll, and Shad3slayer, who's suffering from the 550% MF to 0% MF problem which needs some time to adjust). The vast majority of D3 players is absolutely amazed by the patch, all my friends are coming back and playing it right now (and enjoying it a lot). Obviously the drastic changes (BoA, AH shutdown, some builds removed) will scare away some players, but the game is just evolving. If you don't like it, I'm sorry, but the points you raised in your post are just difficult to accept realizing (by looking at your gear) that you clearly haven't even played 10-20 hours into the patch. But it's okay, I've uninstalled games after 15 minutes, no one forces you to play it. Move on. You won't convince us to stop playing though :-)
Feb 28, 2014OP I'm just not sure you're going to find that a majority of people agree with you. I didn't dump a lot of time into D3 before because I felt like I HAD to spend money on the AH to get good gear. I didn't feel like farming for hundreds of hours to get a few upgrades.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Now the game is a lot more like D2 (which I personally love). You will upgrade your gear (starting from scratch) much more frequently, and with different combinations of rares, legs, etc. I've put more time into D3 in the last three nights than I had in the previous year and a half.
So for me, I couldn't disagree with you more.
As for the AH, I'm glad it's gone. Anyone who says the AH is a social or mutliplayer tool is like saying Craig's list and Facebook are similar.
Feb 21, 2014What I look forward to the most, is that I can finally play the game to get nice loot. Instead of playing the AH or be super lucky.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
More build diversity, especially when you consider certain legendary effects.
