Act 1 I'll give you. It was brilliant. It got us back into the world in a nice callback to act 1 in Diablo 2 in atmosphere. Act 2 and Act 3... not as much. Belial's plan was silly, and Azmodan broadcasting his stuff to you was tactically unsound. Sure, his sin is pride and the essence of D in Leah might have caused it, but it's still poor.

Act 4 is pretty epic, and the ending was heartwarming in a way. Unfortunately, it's too short, and that's actually the real strike against the story-- it's not long enough.

Best story was probably Diablo 1, imo.

My shield is next on the list, so hopefully I can get a better deal in the next few days, THEN its on to my helmet.
Hmm, speaking of that, maybe I should blow some gold making a radiant star, but I'm not keen on how much it costs. I guess I have one Star one in my weapon right now. And those damned tomes.

Plagued maybe. Desecrate, don't even bother. If you really want to up your life sustain, then you might want to stalk the AH for a dagger and maybe attack speed stuff. The faster you attack, the way more effective life on hit is. I guess I don't have much myself-- I really only have attack speed from my rings, but they sure helped.

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/blog/6968...stem-8_20_2012

wow, i like this one. now magic finding is better...i think. and you can look forward to do something
more after you're level 60. leveling up Paragon! pretty cool idea. i hope this will makes a lot
of people to continue having fun while hunting for rares and legendaries.

Not sure how I should feel about this, as the system makes you feel like you have to focus on 1 character instead of playing whatever you wants. It could be good, but it also feel like a grindfest when you look at the final bonus.

So it seems they do know the lack of progression is what stops me turning the game on.

It's not an isolated problem, I assure you. At least this does address some of the concerns, and hey, stat advancement!

No matter what anyone says, just having that bar fill up and the little character decoration thing is good enough for me.

Good addition.

So here I was reading the positive reaction to the paragon system over at the blog; felt like it was filling the gaping hole left by the trolls, whiners and other garbage. And wouldn't you know, something else fucks up.

Remember that video with Brevik? Well... http://www.gameranx.com/updates/id/8...ck-that-loser/



Oh blizzard, tsk tsk, stop reading your forums yo.

Progression, even if token is good, but it'll trivialize the content. This won't work without more difficult content to tackle with the new power.

And the cap on MF is just awful. The epitome of pvm gear in Diablo 2 was to have stacked mf and killing power. MF should never become obsolete, because you'll always want to farm to trade.

Without balance, then it's just appeasing the complainers that simply couldn't think out of the box and want it all handed to them without effort. Yes, enrage timers and stupid combos need to go, but you can't just nerf content so drastically and give such a large buff.

If this levels only provided mf, mf was uncapped, game was slightly easier, I'd prefer that.

As a side note, I'm trying to buy a hamburger on the AH, and I keep getting sniped. Wtf? Why is it so overpriced?

Also, I tried Act 1 Inferno with a lulzy build of Sweeping Wind/Air Ally/FoT/Cyclone Strike. Added in the fleet footed passive to go faster. I just keep spamming cyclone strike and they all die. And gold is easier to pick up. Maybe I don't need sweeping wind for this.

Diablo 3 Progress kinda works like sc2ranks. It has fun stats, though sadly it doesn't list percentiles. http://www.diabloprogress.com/hero/a...0/hero/5464643

lol...there just always something wrong @ Blizzard, huh? if it's not one thing, it's another thing.

also, the main forum is blowing my mind off sometime. more and more whining and
crying and complaining...ugh. that kind of brings me back to a quote my political professor
once says to me @ my college: "the masses are @sses!" and he is so damn right too.

Huh, so apparently we're getting the patch today. Or at least for us here in the Philippines, later tonight.

That's a LOT of stuff there.

Good thing I cleared Inferno just before this. So then people won't get to say "omg you only cleared it when it was easy"

Actually, I did... since 1.02 was harder and I didn't do it then.

Kind of bugs me that I can't actually SEE the changes while at work (stupid office security settings). Anyone post the list of changes here?

Wow... to think something as simple as the Paragon System can entice me to restart my Inferno run again. Not like I can test the changes once the patch hits (out of town). Still, Blizzard is one of those game companies that are actually willing to introduce new major game mechanics in patches, which is good for longevity.

Also, METEOR buffs. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Much obliged.

Ugh, while I'm not too surprised at what was done with the Wizard class, the changes to the Demonhunter skills pretty much make the Tank build I'm using much more harder, ESPECIALLY since Caltrops can literally no longer proc skills.
