Re: Diablo III + Reaper of Souls (multi-platform)

I might pick it up around Xmas for 50% off.

Would never pay even $15 with no new content being added.

There are a couple new zones being added, but I think everyone gets those.

Re: Diablo III + Reaper of Souls (multi-platform)

I played many hours of the necromancer on the pc in the beta. It was fun, but ultimately the style did not lend itself to how I like to play Diablo...when the next season comes out I will probably play the Demon Hunter again, and wait until this drops under 10 bucks. 15 bucks is just too high for a new character that borrows from other classes.

Re: Diablo III + Reaper of Souls (multi-platform)

Yea...I've seen a lot of comments on the $15 being a tad too much. Right now one can pick up the whole game for $25-$30 or wait and see on the "Next Ultimate Edition" with the Necromancer included.

Re: Diablo III + Reaper of Souls (multi-platform)

Considering I bought both the PC and console versions and don't think $15 is going to break my bank.

Re: Diablo III + Reaper of Souls (multi-platform)

For those who care, the X1 DLC for the Necromancer will have Achievements

https://www.trueachievements.com/gam...nts#h6DLC_6138

Reasonable list in my opinion too.

Re: Diablo III + Reaper of Souls (multi-platform)

Well after investing several hours into the Necro so far, if you are looking to replay the Necro from D2 then you are going to be disappointed. I believe that Blizzard mentioned a while ago that they wanted to re-imagine the idea of what a Necro is plus the Witch Doctor has pretty much replaced the play style of the Necro of D2. So set your expectations before you go in.

The Necro's poison skills are pretty weak and not that impressive. You can add poison damage with other gems (Efficacious Toxin) and gear that's available (Andariel's Visage, Mad Monarch Scepter, etc.) and Kanai cube their effects but there is no Necro set gear that focuses on on poison. Hopefully they will add one.

In my opinion this character's strengths are more in line with that of a Vampire and less a Necro and are highly focused on the Corpse Explosion build of D2. The focus is on physical damage you do with bone and blood. You can go on controlling armies of darkness and you can certainly make a hoard of minions but the strongest builds right now are not pet builds its physical builds.

Once I got over the fact that this is not a D2 Necro and the play style does take some getting used to it is a fun character to play and gear out especially when I started trying to work in the poison gear without breaking Necro's the set gear boosts.

That being said its still a strong class and probably the strongest class currently dealing out the most damage with the right set gear.
Expect to see a lot of Necros topping the leader boards when season 11 starts.

Re: Diablo III + Reaper of Souls (multi-platform)

Interesting review and thanks for the input. I've held of but have seen some positive feedback. Getting the two slots for him makes no excuse of "I don't have an opening"....I only played Diablo III when it became available for the console (on the 360 at the time0 and don't really know the history of the Neco.

But sadly I've seen some posters on a few diablo Communities via PS4 posting pics of their obvious "Cheater Mod Set" which those clowns have poisoned the game....I might get back and see if I can find a friend or two from the past who might run with. Thanks for the input.

Re: Diablo III + Reaper of Souls (multi-platform)

I finally bit the bullet and just cleared out my entire stash so I could gear up fresh. I really didn't see the point any longer in holding onto gear I was not going to use. I had also ran low on materials trying to cube everything so I had to stop to just clear out the clutter. I may get back to cubing everything after I build up materials again. If its not ancient or greater I'm not keeping it.

Also heard rumblings that since this DLC did so well that they will be looking to add more DLC characters. Perhaps a return of the Amazon!

Re: Diablo III + Reaper of Souls (multi-platform)

I believe given the choice of new characters later vs getting "Diablo IV" out the door....the overall verdict would be Diablo IV. And as I recall they hired some people for high profile jobs and speculation was working on a new Diablo game. But then again Blizzard has Overwatch going and there was something mentioned a month or so ago they had like 200+ openings for future projects.....so who knows.

Re: Diablo III + Reaper of Souls (multi-platform)

New Season starts tonight!!!!

Everyone do themselves a favor and try out the season. It starts you fresh, no loot...no money...no paragon...nothing.

But there are steps that let you earn a full green set for the class you choose to play as (most will do the Necro I would imagine)..and the game feels new and fresh when you start a season...

My friend, son and I are all rolling 3 fresh Necromancers....

Re: Diablo III + Reaper of Souls (multi-platform)

I tend to always play solo and I have never gotten much more than 200 before getting a bit bored with the season.

Re: Diablo III + Reaper of Souls (multi-platform)

I'm so tempted to start playing the season but my wife is going to kill me if I spend the time I spent to platinum this game. I don't want to get sucked in...

Re: Diablo III + Reaper of Souls (multi-platform)

My son and I managed to hit the 3rd best in the world 2-player season leader board tonight on our ps4's...we also are the only two players both running necromancers in the top 20. Already at paragon 600, and got my second primal ancient already. We both think we can hit GR100+ with another 20 or so hours of play.

It is MASSIVELY refreshing they managed to stop all glitching for top level gear that plagued the ps4 leader board in season 10. I think I am the only person in the top 50 on two player right now with a primal ancient. This time last season there was a guy with 10.

Also last season I played a Demon Hunter and was only able to solo into the low GR90s...The Necromancer is so op right now compared to other classes.

Re: Diablo III + Reaper of Souls (multi-platform)

That's just awesome Fox...Congrads to both of you......job well done....

I "Finally" started mine yesterday with my first Season...what a nice refresher of starting out with nothing. It reminded me of when I first got the game for the 360 and having noting when I started my first character...no stash, no gems, no set pieces, no mega Legendry's to fall back on...I loved it

And I like the Necromancer as well. The skills are good and reminds me of playing the Witch Doctor with the "Pets". That early on exploding corpse skill just wrecks everything. I haven't looked up what all the skills and passives do; just reverting back to testing them all out as they unlock which is fun to do. My grandson came over while playing...he has Diablo also...and he's getting it. I haven't had a "Fun Character" like this since playing the Witch Doctor whom I just had loads of laugh with.

I'll continue with Necromancer and eventually start a non-season. The only sad news from last night I did die twice....at the hands of The Nemesis. Once at Level 8 and the other Level 17. He's tough at early levels although I almost had him at Level 17 when I used the Raise the Army of Dead or whatever skill it is. Grandson actually suggested the trick of killing the Golem and then raising him which I did....it was an insane Battle-Royal going on....

The Season armor set is built around the pets build, so it is perfect to work out a pets build now to get ready for it. The key to the full set is Skeletal Mages...so you really want to start working that one into your build so you get use to casting it during a fight.
Also make sure you try out Bone Armor if you are having toughness problems...30% damage reduction...and easy to maintain.
