    Default upcomming diablo expansion and a quick question

    Wondering if anyone is planning on playing it and your thoughts on d3's future? I'm fully aware it's considered a "bust" right now especially when compared to it's predecessor, but i've read that d2 also had a slow start? Considering Blizzard is running it maybe it's got a decent chance?

    I've personally played it and really like the mechanics of the game, it's really the only isometric wasd game that feels polished. I really want to try it out again because of the new crusader class. My damn account got hacked though.

    Speaking of which, my quick question is if you want to play the new expansion, do you have to purchase the original game as well? I really don't feel like spending 80-100 dollars to play a game especially since i've actually already bought it and would have to re-purchase it (account got hacked).

    edit: just saw they are selling a specially priced bundle for everything @ 60 bucks...not so bad

    Well yeah... you need the original game in order to play the expansion.
    So far I'm enjoying the 2.0.1 patch a lot, but I'm really interested in Adventure mode and Nephalem Rifts, so I'll probably end up buying the expansion EVENTUALLY, not at release.

    Runs where everything is randomized: the map, the tileset, the light color, the monsters that appear, the end boss. It's like a completely separate dungeon. From what I have read it will be added to D3 classic, without the expansion, so that's exciting.

    Personally hoping D3 goes on sale soonish here. The recent patch from what I've read has made the game a lot better and worth the $40 price tag, however I still can't afford that right now sadly. I could $30 or less though, so Blizzard if you're here, psst, send me a coupon.

    The new patch definitely makes it a lot more fun now to play. Been enjoying the new Barbarian and the new Wizard a lot. You should get it when you can.

    It's nice that the game finally comes out of beta though I don't feel like paying another 40 Euro to get the full game. True, the loot system has been improved but in the end it's still the same, boring grindfest without any sort of end game content.

    You just grind gear until you reach a point where the upgrades you can get aren't worth the effort so you stop playing because you realize there's no point in getting new gear, it's even more pointless now when you can't sell your Legendary/Set items. My guess is that most people will get bored of RoS after a month or so. What's the point of grinding gear in a game with no end game? They should at least introduce PvP to keep some people people hooked.

    Don't get me wrong, I welcome and enjoy the new changes and I'm glad Blizzard finally did something with the things peple complained about since the release but I doubt 2.0 and the expansion will be enough to keep people interested in playing this game.

    Hmmm I could possibly do this provided one gets in stock. Wouldn't be such a problem if it wasn't early in the month still.

    Thanks I'll keep an eye on this.

    Edit:Found $10 at the pumps today, so if that wasn't a sign I don't know what would be. Probably wont get RoS for a few months though.

    The Barbarian seems to have gotten slightly more tanky from what I played. I still had old Loot 1.0 equips though, so I was less so. Also, if you haven't played D3 in a while, your runes might show up as "New!" Even though you've seen them before. Some of Barbarian's skills will cool down faster.

    Question: How much of the new content that comes with Reaper of Souls will be available to people who only own the base game? I just got the base game and will only get the expansion mid April or something. Am I just missing out on Crusader class and Act V or some more stuff?

    The Mystic that can enchant your gear and can also change the appearance of it like in wow , no idea what its called >.< . But ive seen a video of the enchanting and i dont like the way its done , the gold amount increases the more you use it .
    Adventure mode for bounties and better loot and gold , blood shards to buy legendaries maybe from an NPC . Nephalem Rifts to get the blood shards from , those are randomized dungeons with random bosses and possibly even quests .

    They also said there is a lot more to be shown about the expansion and that what they released so far are just the main features of it .

    The latest patch feels more like a Diablo game now. IMO, this is the good time to get that game.

    Im not a fan of Blizzard but i know that how shit their initial game is, they will deliver eventually

    D2 was crap unti LoD expansion anyway, i hope this time it will be the same as well.

    Regardless, cant wait for the expansion

    The game is really great now! It should been done like this from the start. I just started to play a few days ago again and i love it. The loot system is amazing now, i have 5 legendarys now lol. Can't wait for the expansion. I will buy it when they release it. It feels more like diablo 2 now. I can say it is worth to buy the game now!

    Yeah the latest patch completely changed the game for the better. Personally I'm getting really excited to play a crusader, I've only got 1 level 60 currently and don't want to play in fear of burning myself out on content. That being said RoS comes out on my birthday so it should be a good day.

    Well, well. I agree that the game is REALLY fun again but the loot system is still flawed in many ways.
    Once you get geared (I'm averagely geared actually, currently a bit below 200k dps and nearly 1m toughness buffed) it's really difficult to get upgrades especially since they nerfed a lot of affixes on the weapons, more so on rare items. In fact, this renders most rares pointless to a point where you should not even pick them up ._.
    You basically always wait for the next legendary drop, they should do something about that. Also a lot of the new items are WAY inferior in terms of stats (Blizzard wants to get away from critdmg/critchance apparently).

    As I said before, I'm still really enjoying the game, just once you get geared your opinion might change a bit

    I already bought the expac, loot 2.0 fixed the game. It was always good, just so hard to find gear. Worth the 40 bucks, plus the pre order loot is cool.

    They want people to find gear so they can actually play the game. Think of how pointless it would be to play the game if you got the absolute best shit in a few weeks.
