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.

I don't know, leveling just for the sake of leveling is not what I bought D3 for.

You don't like the extra bonus for leveling? And I don't understand why would it be a bad thing anyway. I don't force myself to reach Paragon 100. It's just there to show me that there is anything for me to gain while hunting gears.

On the topic of Tank DH, isn't the proc chance is lower, but they are doubling the LoH, Crit, and Life steal amount on weapon already?
