    I know quite a few still playing, but I'm probably done visiting this clubhouse, too many tears. I keep checking back to see some posts I want to respond to, but mostly just people complaining.

    finally took down Ghom. took me about 10 tries. twice he was down to less than 10% health then enraged. I went nuts and changed every skill into pure DPS, surprisingly that worked!
    This is the first time ever that I actually feel a sense of accomplishment in this game.

    that's why i stopped posting... because i have nothing good to say and didn't want to ruin it for everyone else.

    honestly though i am so very disappointed in this game i don't even know how to put it into words. I simply can not see how anyone can consider this a true successor to the series. it has been lobotomized and neutered beyond recognition. it was fun for 40 or so hours, and as Kreij has highlighted time and again - 40-60 hours for a $60 is no slouch. however, 40 hours before boredom sets in with a diablo game? that is simply unacceptable imo.

    idk, I still enjoy the game, but it is def not where it should have been

    My cousin though, was fed up and quit, he did have ~140 hours played at LEAST. But he's the kind of guy that sticks to a game for at least 6~9 months and diablo 2 was a game we sticked with for many years, not a few months

    Still, I am eager to get back to montreal and play some good DIII

    OH there is no question that far fewer people are playing. I know that has a lot to do with AH liquidity. Not to mention all the bad patches, lack of end game, and horrible loot tables....yet I still play. :laugh:

    I had about 8 real world friends and 15+ iFriends, of which 2 play.

    I do exactly what you have been doing when I'm not enjoying a game anymore. And I think at the hours you got invested, 40 is a bit low, I can see how you would be disappointed. But it gets my goat when I know some of these people are griping when they got 100 hours into the game, not many games now days get you that much playtime, and if they do, at that point I'm happy to say I got my monies worth and move onto the next title rather than complain about it.

    I personally felt the same way about D2 as you feel about this game though :laugh: Guess it's just all at how you look at it. I know D2 had a bit more replay-ability if leveling interested you. But I was more after atmosphere, D1 was so dark, and I see that back in this game. I didn't really enjoy D2 much and having that atmosphere back I really enjoy this. But yeah, it's just all how you look at the different aspects of the game.

    I still think the game is great fun to play, I'm just burnt out on it with over 200 hours.
    I definitely got my money's worth and don't regret the $60 price tag at all.

    Sure, there are things I wish they did different, but this is the game they developed and it's a lot of fun.

    LOL!

    Seriously though, Jay Wilson is a douche. I read the reddit Q&A and he just basically response every question and criticism with "I know better".

    in other words - we hear your complaints but are going to ignore them, because we already know what's best. we'll tell you we appreciate your input, and then explain why we're right and you are wrong. **pat pat**

    they're fixing legendaries and giving level 60 chars something to do that isnt item farming.


    i see nothing wrong with that.

    PVP is going to absolutely destroy this game. It happened to WoW, it'll happen to Diablo for the sake of "balance"

    Since D3 is not an MMO like WoW, why do you think this will be the case?

    Because the balancing act for PvP will directly effect your ability to progress through the game in PvE. Once Blizzard starts playing the numbers game with class abilities for the sake of PvP combat, it usually doesn't end well for the PvE side.

    To get more specific, depends really on what build you prefer. All I can say are general things (and I've only been able to reach up to Maghda in Inferno). Get at least 500 resist, 25k HP, 10k DPS, 6k armor. In my case I have around 600 resist, almost 30k HP, 15k DPS, and 7k armor. Remember life on hit too, although I only have around 352 LoH. Thorns are a great bonus too, I have 1290 thorns damage for my barb.

    it's been made clear since before release, that pvp and pve balance are two different things, so: no.


    neither do i, it's the least they could do. and that's nearly a literal statement :(

    Just build a WW Barb, or some flavor of it. Most barbs I see in act II/III/IV are WW.

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/barbarian#bhYkVR!XdY!ZcZbcb

    30k+ hp, 600+ AllRes, 500+ LoH, 8000+ Armor, 20k+ Dps, CC 30% (before buffs), CD 200%, IAS-nice to have
