    Actually if they are both DH/Wiz/WD they would have a much better time getting started in Inferno.
    As I said before melee requires a shit ass ton more gear than ranged to be equally effective :(

    Def nothing wrong with what Blizzard is doing. It was very clear to me as I looked at the FAQ before doing anything stupid.

    Holy shit someone actually bought my Zunimassa's Vessel for fifty bucks! I don't use Paypal though so basically it's just a different kind of gold for me to get better gear.

    Good for you Pr0n.

    Nothing sold on the GAH for me in the last couple of days.
    Didn't matter if I put them up really cheap or not.
    Everything came back so I tossed 10 items back out their today and 6 of them sold in 5 minutes. :wtf:

    Only thing I can figure is that someone came along looking for inexpensive items to resell at a higher price.

    I found a nice spear I could use on the GAH. Unfortunately it's 2 billion gold. :laugh:

    I played last night, and there were a total of 500 Public games. Usually that number is around 2000 and it's peak was 14K games after release. I am not sure if that is due to Blizz trying to balance server loads, or if the game is just dying.

    To me it seems like it is starting to die. I still have fun playing multi, but something is up.

    @ZZZ : Number of games or number of people in games?
    I can see how many people are playing in public, but not how many games there are.
    Currently is at ~1350 in games.

    Game needs a DOOOOOM level because inferno's just too easy. :p

    BTW : Thanks for the pants ZZZ :toast:
    My gems feel much safer in my new pants. lol

    Diablo 3 is the only game in existence that makes you more manly if your pants are bedazzled.

    So the fact I put two different colored gems in my pants makes me more manly?
    Oh yeah ... :rockout:

    I need better weapons. As I gear-up for survival my DPS is taking a rather nasty hit. :/

    People in public games. Unless everyone is playing Single Player, which I doubt.

    Glad those pants fit you better. Gotta bling them out with some Star level gems though.

    I'm already broke from making flawless square gems. lol
    Radiant stars are 20M each on the GAH.

    Well not that high level, a basic star is only 80K to craft I think. Last I check they were selling for 600K.

    last time checked, buying from the GAH and selling the parts you have is cheaper than making them yourself

    I can say that RMAH and increased repair cost sucked the fun out of Diablo 3 for me. I barely even play these days, and its just grind grind grind for monies :/

    I find that after they halved the wear and tear repair costs, it is reasonable now and I have no complaints about repair costs... RMAH is annoying, but I use it as a second in game currency, therefore I sell stuff in RMAH, then buy stuff with that battle.net balance etc

    I biggest complaint at the moment is act 2+ elite packs in inferno. I find the game oversimplified and repetitive with low re-playability it seems, while DII was repetitive, I enjoyed playing again, I can't imagine doing normal,nightmare,hell and Act 1+2 inferno with another char without going crazy

    I don't bother soloing anymore. It's not that I can't, it's just a grind.
    Playing with TPU'ers and friends is a barrel of laughs though. :)

    Played with Urlyin, Asrock and his wife earlier today. First time I saw such massive party slaughter (us not the mobs) :laugh:

    If you start from flawless squares, it will cost about 500k in total for each star you made. that is assuming you farm gems and tomes by yourself.

    It's really not any different than the previous Diablo games, but you didn't play them. they are farm games once you hit max level, it is what it is. Just like some people get bored with BF games because all it is is playing the same maps over and over with no story being told when you play. It's all really in the eye of the beholder here.

    After 1.0.3 I haven't really hit a dead end with either character. Remember, this is Inferno, you aren't suppose to breeze through this last difficulty.

    Personally with either of my classes, Inferno is actually easier solo. The more people you add, the more tank like your tanks have to be. Which is fine for those that want to be super tanky, but for those melee that don't want to be forced to be a ranged character just to drop down good damage, it sucks for them. Solo things have less life so easier to burst down, granted my Barb isn't burst anymore so I don't really care how many people jump in, I'll just keep using LoH to keep going.

    The funniest thing happen today: was MF/Ging and came to this from Cemetery (look @ the area title, then @ the names of the monsters):

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The whole are was like that and, as far as i could tell, all the names / jobs were different. the area elite was the game director :laugh:


    This was probably already noticed before but, just in case it wasn't, here it is.
    1Kurgan1 and cadaveca say thanks.

    LOL yeah, I got to Development Hell earlier too, for the first time. All of the monsters there are named after someone from their staff.

    Dunno if this was the 1st time or not because, before, i was trying to not get killed but now that rarely happens @ this area so i can afford to take a better look @ stuff such as the monsters names :laugh:

    There is also a QC dungeon with the quality staff members in it.
    I've only run across the dev and qc dungeons. I don't know it there are more.
    1Kurgan1, HTC and cadaveca say thanks.
