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

Actually from what I'm reading the older legendaries should go up in price too. Brimstones are sometimes made when they are broken down and those are used to make a few legendaries and the set items. Since the new legendaries are going to be pretty good it's unlikely they will be broken down very often if at all sending the prices of those Brimstones skyrocketing.

People are already starting to buy up the brimstones. They used to go for 80 to 100k, now they are apparently going for 400 to 500k each.

Well, I guess there's that then. I only ever had two legendary drops, and they both sucked.

I never made it very far into Inferno because I never used the auction house, and hated the combination of shitty affixes that elite mobs had in Inferno. I'll try my hand again after 1.04 drops.

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

so here's a funny story...

My buddy has been playing a hardcore character, a barbarian. He is up to level 53 with him. Well he was playing 2 nights ago with a group of random people. He wanted to take a break, so he just hung back for a few minutes. During this gaming session, he had his volume turned down on the computer. His TV was on and some movie came on that had Angelia Jolie in it. Apparently he got distracted, because this is where she shows her boobs. So while he was hanging back, sitting idle, with his sound down, he watched the part where she showed her boobs. At some point, some guy he was playing with trained a few elites right past him. One of them started hitting him and ultimately killed him, all while my friend was distracted watching her boobs. When the one guy asked what happened and why he died, he told him "Angela Jolie's boobs!"

A lot of class changes have been posted, and should all be up by the end of the day.

Hmm I wonder how the wizard energy twister nerf will effect my CM build. I may need a higher crit rate.

Hopefully they do something good with the WD... The wizard notes didn't seem too promising.

my only level 60 is my Demon Hunter, so that is really the only one I care about right now. Blizzard screwed her over in 1.0.3, so lets hope they are gentle this time.

maybe instead of 2 ferrets...she will only have 1 now
maybe she will only be able to use 1 hand on the 2 handed bows
instead of jagged spikes, she will drop whoopie cushions

Having played a Demon Hunter after playing a Witch Doctor, that class isn't broken. At all.

I also hate my WD. He's great at running away though with spirit walk.

its interesting reading the notes because i didn't realize some skills were popular. for me, i use spike traps almost exclusively with my DH. i find it interesting that not a lot of people do though.

The new Paragon system coming in patch 1.0.4 is designed to address Magic Find gear-swapping while providing players who’ve reached level 60 with an extended progression system.
Here’s how it works:

After you hit level 60, any further experience you earn from killing monsters will begin to count toward Paragon levels
There are 100 Paragon levels
Every Paragon level will reward you with:

Core stats such as Strength, Dexterity, Intelligence, and Vitality in amounts similar to what you’d gain from a normal level
3% Magic Find and 3% Gold Find


In addition, a distinctive increasingly-impressive border will surround your character portrait in the in-game party frame to denote your Paragon progression, with a new frame earned after every ten levels. Your Paragon level will also be visible to other players wherever your normal level is shown

Queue the pissed off people who spent money on magic find on the rmah lol

If you get to paragon level 100 you will be MF capped so no need for MF gear.

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

ok 1.04 did drop. Marked improvement.

I was able to do the siegebreaker run with my DH, something that in 1.03 was just not possible. also, i had 3 weapons drop with over 800dps. none of them were any good other than damage, but since i only saw about 3 the whole time prior, this was a huge improvement.

also, Co-op is doable again. the level scaling seems fixed. Overall, a very enjoyable experience.

trying to finish Rage then i'll be back to full time D3 for a bit.

Has anyone played their WD after the patch? I am tempted to try a pet build but I don't know if I want to buy all new gear.

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

I played last night for a couple of hours with my level 60 DH and the game has improved with this patch. I like the paragon system.


however, it may be a little too late for me. They should have made these improvements a few weeks ago and I would probably still be playing. With Torchlight 2 coming out soon, I am going to give that ARPG a fair shake to see if it gets it right from the get go.

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

from the patch notes, it seems like there were no class changes?
Are they still planning to implement class changes? WD needs alot of help.

There were a ton of class changes, with WD getting the most attention: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/blog/7029347/7029347#classes

My old HD went kaput a couple weeks ago, and I'm not sure this is worth a reinstall at this point. Especially with Dark Souls coming out tomorrow. Too late for me, I guess.

I tried playing for a few minutes yesteday and ended up quitting after killing a few regular mobs in act 3. I think the patch came way too late for me. I should probably try to kill Diablo before I uninstall.
