    Default Your thoughts on Diablo 3's future

    Diablo 2 had a slow start and thanks to the expansion(s) it became a breakthrough game. Diablo 3 currently has nothing to really/truly play for. The new RoS expansion DID bring a new class and game-changing features. However, still there is no pvp, just grinding the same acts over and over.

    I just wanted to know your guys' thoughts on what you think the future of D3 is like. Maybe you heard rumors or know information regarding the direction D3 is heading? Maybe you are just a pure mmo/diablo/blizzard wiz and are pretty certain you know the game will end up being dead/breakthough?

    There is PvP?
    Nek the brawler sends you to the arena.
    also with the arrival of RoS you can grind adventure mode/rifts now (woo less monotonous grinding)

    ah yeah, im aware they have the brawls...but that's like meaningless duels with people. Doesn't fit my "personal" definition of pvp. But yes, you're right, it IS pvp haha

    The game seems to be going in the right direction, not sure if it's really reached its destination yet, but it's certainly getting there. Legendary items are still mostly just stat sticks, they need to add more unique powers to the ones that have nothing going for them in a big way. There still needs to be some kind of inter-clan trade system so you can at least trade with friends now that everything is BoA. Classes still need balancing on higher torment levels since you get more and more pigeonholed into specific builds instead of being able to continue experimenting.

    They hinted at some new features coming so that's always good, of course they hinted at PvP coming and that never did show up so we'll see how that turns out. Ladders are supposed to come back, they said there will be special ladder only goodies though, no idea if that will be gear or just cosmetic stuff but if they add special gear to ladder it's going to bother a lot of people (including me). The last thing I want is for them to add special gear to ladder again, I can't stand when different modes become mandatory because you can't get that special gear any other way.

    Other than all that though the game is fine. It's certainly infinitely better than vanilla was and I don't regret purchasing it at all. I sound like I'm doing nothing but ragging on the game but it honestly is a great time, I just like to get all my grievances out of the way first.

    It's great if you just want to beat the shit out of your friends for a couples hours lol, but from any kind of competitive stand point it is lack luster.

    PVP is still pvp regardless of if it is lacking don't say it doesn't have it because it does.

    Still needs better loot and more skill customization. The 2.0 patch and the expansion are a great start but I think there's still 1 more planned expansion and the game might actually be great after that.
    My feet hurt and I'm having trouble peeing.

    idk why people expect a single player game with optional multiplayer to have stuff like in-depth PvP and "endgame".


    Currently playing: FFXIV (Elucifer Arclight, Leviathan server), LoL (Trash Tier Waifu, NA server), SMITE (Zacewing)

    more skill customization than there already is? lol
    maybe more runes would be nice, but there's already a lot of builds available, especially with these new build changing items that can drop.

    never played diablo 3 but from what I have seen, I am not that impressed with it really. if you got bored of diablo 3 before the expansion hit, you will get bored of it soon enough. I don't want to spoil the ending but I don't think a story content expansion will work very well. A free or cheaper expansion in the lines of new features is what this game needs. of add A revamp of the skill system to give it more variety is sorely needed. Maybe add another class in the mix.

    It's got longevity for the hardcore players, like D2 still does.

    I like the rune system myself, It's a interesting way to dink with skills without having to use skillpoints.
    I just wish there were more layers to runes
    ie
    Arcane orb
    Frost rune
    lobbed rune (slightly smaller but can go over/through walls)

    As a simple example.

    They should add more acts one in a half year maybe! But it is on the right direction now, i hated it when it was first released but now im in love with it lol, it kinda remind me more of diablo 2 but not exactly, stil act 5 was short .. i hope they will add more maps atleast (kinda boring to play same maps over and over), and maybe the pvp system diablo 2 had but i think it can get better than it already is!

    By the looks of it, they most likely be adding more stuff in the future. So far, imo, its heading towards a good direction. Slowly but surely.

    Ladder is confirmed to be added in their next big patch(not the next patch) - dont know when.

    Although im not a big fan of ladder, but theeres a quite decent group of people who enjoys them.

    p/s: crusader is op with the thorn build, check on youtube lol.
