    Yeah most of his deaths are him just being gung ho. But comparing how easily his DH folds compared to a Barb is a night and day difference (even without me being tanky). He had a group of 4 champions jump down on him and basically kill him instantly. When I went to revive him I had to kill them, with my life leech I don't even think they moved my life bar. Just seems DH is a stick back class, can't Rambo it as much.

    Yes, I am quoting myself.

    I got to play for an hour after I got home, which is pretty much all I wanted.

    Since I am now a hypocrit for buying Diablo 3 even though it has 100% on DRM and I railed Ubisoft for this exact thing I will be buying some Ubi games in the near future.

    Hello Rayman: Origins!

    Finally finished normal. Here's my barb with no buffs. Battlerage gives him about a 100 dps damage boost. My stats look pretty weak compared to some of yours. And I haven't invested much time in gems even though I have a boat load of them lying around

    ps. Cinematics are so great in this game.

    How has everyone been spending their gold? Other than 2 rings I bought in the beginning, everything has gone towards my blacksmith.

    I went to the new cow level, called Whimsyshire, it's pretty hilarious. It's pretty expensive to get there though.

    I started over with a monk. I thought the barb was tough, the monk is a freakin' lawn mower. lol
    So far my highest "slaughter" record is 44. I think the best the barb did was about 21.

    Now I'm stuck trying to beat Belial. He kicks my ass before I can get him even 1/4 down.

    Urg, i hope this 'server maintenance' doesn't become a popular thing. I play during off peak hours mostly and that seems to be when they do they most maintenance.

    It's only been 4 days since release :eek: also I think that after a cpl of weeks things will be alot more stable, remember this isn't WoW and woth WoW EVERY Tues is either server main. or rolling restarts. Each server also has 10s of 1000s of players on them whereas D3 any game running will only have 4 at the most. I think alot atm is the login servers as the game is so new that millions of ppl are playing non stop every day since Tuesday.

    Maintenance will likely end up being weekly after they get the bugs worked out and server loads normalize. Same as WoW.

    I'm doubting that will be the case since the server loads won't be as great. We'll see though, if they incorporate maint without servers going down, then they can't maint as much as they want.

    Agreed, expecting server upkeep to be similar to Starcraft 2, I think it's just the AH and server errors causing the issue really.

    How does the game handle level differences of characters in MP?

    It increases the difficulty of the mobs. Basically the more people that play the harder the game gets.

    I understand that more players = harder/more mobs, but how does it account for level differences? Say you have 2x 20th levels and 1x 30th level playing together.

    Monk is 24th, Barb is 18th.
    Can you go back and forth between SP and MP with the same characters without screwing up your SP game?

    Yeah, seems easy enough. Your character might be higher-level than needed though. :p


    AS Mailman said, you can "change quest", and select one of many checkpoints for each chapter of each act, and even some shorter events, so if palying MP you g oa bit far, adn you want to trverse back a bit, you can just select that proper quest point.

    I've done this a few times now, can be really hard to try to keep playing with 6 different people!

    I know yesterday me and reayth were playing MP and he is a lvl 9, I am a lvl 5 and we were getting our ASSES handed too us in the cathedral. It seemed like every enemy was a lvl 10-11 and I hardly was doing much damage. I finally started using a arcane explosion which did a good number of damage but does not last long due to mana levels.

    Okay so right now I only see public games on the menu. I assume I just need to give you my battle.net tag to get invited to private games?
    If so, it's Kreij#1784
