There was a recently a blizz post where they admit that the end-game item hunt isn't as compelling as they imagined it would be. I think a lot of us that have been playing since beta or day 1 are really starting to see that.

That is, unless you're making hundreds of dollars doing it. That's different.

Try Hardcore. Suddenly, it's fun again. DooMer had it right, from the start.

Hardcore has always been the way to go with a game like this. I respect people that choose not to play it, but fuck you're missing out on a lot of fun. Its insane how many close calls I've had on my 58 WD, I can't believe I haven't died yet. Multiple times I nearly just took my hands off the keyboard and gave up because I was certain I was dead. Its exciting and rewarding when you take on a tough champ pack and question whether or not you are going to make it. Knowing that 40 hours of play time could go down the drain at any point will give you much more excitement than constantly doing the normal mode grind.

I'd love to be able to play Hardcore, but frankly, I'm not good enough. I die frequently on Normal (not as much as I once was). I'm getting better, but to have to be really good at this game for it to be fun is a bit of a downer. I think a game should allow you to suck, but still have fun...

There's also the issue of having to play chicken with your internet connection. Many great Diablo 3 players have lost their HC character due to lag spikes or disconnections.

Finally made it. Lost my first at level 52 in Halls of Agony to a Dark Berserker champion pack. Vortexed into a clusterfuck of arcane beams and desecrate without any cooldowns up.



I don't think I have the time or patience to make a serious push in Inferno :\

:up: Congrats, I never tried hardcore because I figured I'd just be playing the beginning of the game over and over haha. I imagine Inferno would definitely be an exercise in frustration.

Patch 1.0.4 Systems Preview: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/blog/6923456 ... -8_10_2012

It's definitely not too little, but I'm afraid it is way too late. Many people have quit already and the 4th week of August means many more will be distracted by GW2 [I know I will be]. Still, a lot of good changes in there.

Yeah, I quit this game at level 48 on Nightmare. Just didn't have lasting appeal...

1.0.4 Legendary Item Improvements: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/blog/6923457/

Some crazy stuff in there. Reading the 1.0.4 previews, I can't help but feel this stuff should've been in the game at launch, not added in a patch 3 months later.

Can't wait to see those flashy new item graphics rubber band all over my screen.

As a reminder, these changes will only affect Legendary items that drop after the release of patch 1.0.4. This includes items that haven’t been identified yet (as items are rolled when they drop). With the extensive changes being made we can’t exactly translate old Legendary items to new. What might have been a decent item could become worse if we re-roll it, and vice-versa.

I'll probably wait for new content before coming back but all these changes are in the right direction finally. After I beat Darksiders 2 there is the new WoW expansion in a month.

I'm surprised to see so many "legit" Diablo fans praising these class buffs/content nerfs. Generally speaking, when this kind of thing happens in WoW, it causes hardcore players a great deal of grief.

Diablo and WoW aren't the same kind of game. WoW needs to be carefully balanced around PvP, raiding, solo play, everything, because there is no way to take the MMO aspect out of the game. The entire thing is embedded within a community that needs diversity but equality.

Diablo simply needs to be fun. It doesn't matter if a venom hydra wizard can kill diablo in 20 seconds if a chakram demon hunter can do roughly the same thing. But if a fire mage could solo raid bosses, there would be no reason to bring healers or tanks. If a prot paladin could outlive any other class in PvP, every arena team would have them.

Diablo content should be hard, but the characters need to feel fun and overpowered or people aren't going to play it. Especially when every time you find a fun way to play, Blizz ends the party.

I just started playing Diablo 3. Got a new PC after being out the PC gaming world for about 2 years.

Gotta say. It's quite addicitve. I also got The Old Republic, which I thought I would love. However, I do not. It's quite dull.

Cheers.

Again, a great change. Capping MF is smart as I hate using it and would always prefer having defensive or DPS stats instead.

I thought it was odd that killing a fat, ugly, slob of a monster named "Jay Wilson" got me a Feat of Strength acheivement. Now it makes much more sense.

I'm quite surprised at the level of unprofessionalism in that whole mess. The guy gave his honest feedback and they're acting like children who just got their sand castle knocked over.

Not much of an apology. He spends the vast majority of the post promoting the new patch and whatnot.

They're also banning people from the forums for posting anything with a negative slant in that thread.
