Nerf Skeletal/Summoned Archers!
Nerf Skeletal Archers/Summoned Archer! This is some serious bull!@#$. After grinding season 8 since it's beginning I had finally managed to get some half decent gear for my Wizard. I was running some 70+ G-rifts, pushing my limit. I was running a 73 G-rift without any problems - until I got to the last level. There were these summoned archers everywhere! Up until that level I had had very little problems with tanking both ranged and melee attacks, but for some unknown reason, those god damned archer could somehow kill me with 2-3 shots. And they're everywhere too! impossible to avoid. It got to the point where I wiped the rift because I would be killed as soon as I re-spawned. I have had the same problem on regular toon. No matter how well geared I am, it only takes about 2-3 shots from a Skeletal Archer to kill me. It's a Demon Hunter that I've been playing since the very first day of D3's release, and to this day it has never seen so much as a trace of decent toughness. So I figured that's just the problem with DH's, or that's just a problem with my build. But after gearing my Wizard and learning of this amazing thing called Toughness, I have realized that no matter if I can tank several arcane sentries, exploding elite packs, or massive onslaughts from various minions there will always be one of those cursed Skeletal Archer in some damned corner somewhere, ready to kill me with just a few shots... So I'm asking you to either get rid of the completely, or nerf them to a reasonable level. Or you could just make it so that there are less of them. I mean they're everywhere! I can't be expected to clear every single minion on my DH just so I won't be shot from behind, when fighting an elite/rare. This sucks more than the US election... Sincerely, Sedach.1
Diablo 3 and RoS account!
I dont know if this is a bannable offence, so I beg the moderators to not instantly ban me if I violated the laws of the forums! Please! This is about Diablo 3 and RoS. I know it is sad what I am doing by I am trying to do it purely for the love of my friends, you the players and Diablo 3 that became a game we can finaly LOVE. Here is the deal. Out of the three of us, one of our friends cant possibly buy the game to play it with the two of us. We did the calculations and he cant afford it. If he tries to change a job, he may end up being jobless yet again ( the glory of living in a decaying country) So, I came here, to beg on my knees for a kind soul that stopped playing the game for good, or someone that knows someone that dont need their account, or someone willing to share an account so we can play a bit of D3 with a mate that cant do it otherwise. I understand that there is a high chance of me being banned, mocked, trolled and ridiculed, but at this point, I am sadly beyond care and hope. I am just trying to fit a friend in the game so we can experience a fragment of D3 while we can. I hope that I dont get perma banned cus we are in a horrible financial situation :(1

Why is D2 so much better than D3?
I've been reading comments on the forum and replies to news from blizzard and i've noticed that a lot of people are comparing D3 to D2 and saying things like "D2 is so much better" or "if they made D3 more like D2 it would be better" or my favorite "the people working on D3 sucks bring back the D2 team" my question to these people is why is D2 better? now don't get me wrong i love D2 and i played it for years but the game had a lot of problems that people tend to overlook because the demands on a game wasn't as high when D2 came out and was played as they are now in the D3 era. But ill make a few points that in my opinion are shortcomings of D2 when compared to D3 D2 is much more repetitive - you teleport to boss, kill boss, create new game and start over and almost never get any good drops or if you're farming keys same thing but u get a torch at the end which until recently wasn't even tradable Drop and trade systems are totally ruined - high runes almost never drops, but runewords are relatively cheap in trade so why even farm them, good legendaries are not as rare as high runes but they are not worth as much in trade, now i know this is because of cheaters and dupers but still you didn't see a lot of that when D3 had trading and even less now :P Gear is almost the same for everyone - when gearing a D2 char for endgame PvE its almost the same gear for everyone (i'm generalising a bit now but not a lot... enigma/CoH, +3 skill amu with HP or Mara, SoJ/ bulkhatos, char specific weapon or Botd if there aren't any, verdungo/arachnid, skill L charms and HP/res S charms, and so on) if you don't count char specific items you could take almost your whole gear from a barb and put it on a paladin and it would still work good, some pieces would even work from barb to sorc, not enough for a functional char but still, oh yea and sets are mostly not even used in endgame but sometimes good to use before u get endgame gear PvP is alright until... PvP is pretty good, a bit of unbalance but still fun and really hard against good players, and a lot of time, planning and theorycrafting goes in to ones PvP gear, thats until the FoH paladin enters the game, FoH palas only purpose is to ruin PvP for everyone else (1shots almost anyone long before they come in your line of sight by rightclicking anywhere and you would think this is awesome in PvE but its not, cause its single target only) and yet almost everyone seems to have one PvE - ridiculously easy - when you have some of your endgame gear PvE becomes to easy, all bosses are no threat at all and the way leading up to them is a bit annoying and takes some time (most of that time is waiting) and some enemies have immunity to your element at hell difficulty (there are ways around that) but still easy and thats if you're not a hammerdin, when you are a hammerdin it's superduper easy we are talking normal difficulty in D3 easy, you have high res and armor and block so you're really hard to kill, you have high damage and nothing is immune to a hammerdin i don't even think anything has any res to hammerdins. now you have some uber bosses that are hard if you're not geared or specced for it but again if you are specced and geared for it (smite pala) its easy as hell again spec diversity and balance - now the spec diversity is nice, all classes have 3 skill trees and for a few of them all 3 skill trees are active skills some have a tree with only passive skills or party skills, and even within these 3 skill trees theres a lot of specs to choose from (for example a sorc can find like 3-4 specs only in the fire skill tree) and now when they added token of absolution (reset stats and skills) its fun to experiment and not worrying about spec not working and you have to make a whole new char, the only problem with specsand balance is that no matter how good you make your spec and gear, paladins are always gonna be better, that goes for PvP, PvE and Ubers. leveling was weird - lvl 1-24 a bit slow, lvl 25-85 super fast, lvl 85-89 a bit slow, 90-99 super slow Oh and about the D2 team, they tried to make a few games as Flagship Studios(one of them a D2 lookalike named mythos) but failed miserably, they had some good ideas with hellgate: london (mainly taking the D2 gear and drop systems and put them in a shooter) but a lot of the game was flawed so that failed aswell (i think that if you take the idea of Hellgate: London and make a new game from it now it would be awsome), now bill roper is on the marvel 2015 team and he's doing a good job there anyway, what i'm trying to say is don't judge D3 against the nostalgia you have for D2, it will never live up to that, as separate games they are both good and have their own pros and cons but when you compare them both to each other D3 will win from almost all aspects of the game if you look at it objectively31
Diablo 2 vs diablo 3 and future of franchise
I want to tell my 2 cents about d3 vs. d2 and future of franchise.As you can see,I don't have so many hours in-game like others and didn't gear all my characters full.As much as I loved d3 and tried to enjoy it,I just couldn't hold it anymore.So now I'll explain why... 1.Atmosphere/dialougue/story Yeah,I think we all saw that coming.The music in this game is always so casual and boring it just fails to have some impact on player.Now don't get me wrong that's only 60% of music(excluding act 5 soundtrack which was best in my opinion and act 1 tristram theme) but it's just...meh.Dialogue also feels forced and most of time tries to be humorous but fails.Characters in towns are rambling about some unimportant stuff which leads to a sense of separation from main story.For ex. some merchant says something like how this woman gives him bad look and he wonders if she has some foul intentions.Wtf?!An angel just crashed and destroyed half of cathedral and there's Wortham burning few kilometres of New Tristram and that's best you have to comment?Story was ok at best,but lore books suffer from same as dialogue,although I loved the parts which weren't explained in great detail in previous games(Lilith,Inarius,Angiris council etc.)Also there are corpses and blood in this game but who forgets when you entered jail level in d2 where you seen people torn apart by torturing devices or blood boiling in depths of monastery catacombs?I've got shivers everytime when I enter cathedral in d2 or d1 but here...no.Lightning and gamma/contrast could be also toned down.Diablo 3 was only scary to me in act 5,especially Westmarch heights when you hear that mumbling voice or act 4 silver spire levels where you could hear angels scream...Now that all evils are loose we could see many things like Azmodan turning back from Diablo which leads to hell civil war,Imperius own pride leading to his battle with nephalem and his downfall,angels reuniting again after getting two new aspects from Lightsong and so on. 2.Monsters/monster affixes/combat I just hate moster encounters in higher torment difficulties.In diablo 2,encounters were much more personal and when you come to an elite you really need to think and use some strategy to finish them off.That was primaraly beacuse of great modifiers like light.co.pois.fir. enchanted,imunnities etc.I didn't like any of modifiers in d3 except arcane enchanted,desecrator and avenger.Here when you hit T6 all monsters in a way become mob packs and if you are geared right you just blaze through them.That's it.No strategy,modifiers don't mean anything just blazing.Now of course there are exceptions to this rule-above mentioned arcane enchanted and desecrator enemies requires you to be careful so that's only strong point.Yet strangely enough combat is damn satisfying so you wont be able to stop for hours.35% of monster design is unmemorable(anarchs,lacuni huntress,exarchs,ice porcupine) while others are great(blood seraph,blood golems,collosal golgors,death maidens,deceivers...)What bothers me,and I loved that in d2 are monster deaths.Can you remeber how oveersers skin was melted when you defeated them?Here in d3 I like how collosal golgors explode in pile of bones and flesh.It's just nasty.I would really love to see more gory animations,but since we probably won't get another expansion I hope we'll see it in d4. 3.Skill tree/passives/stats Now, along with combat this is too best part of d3.The way they implemented % of weapon dmg goes to skill power is great and always ensures that every skill is valuable and good in specific builds.The only thing d2 sucked at beacuse some skills only purpose was synergy.However there is room for improvement.They could go as far so every skill has sub-skill which alters some things like piercing,AoD,projectile dispersion etc.Runes should be here too but they would make more noticable change to skill like permanent buffs,extra summon,dmg to life convergance etc.Characters stats should also return.Passives also. 4.Itemization/end game/RNG/difficulty Again,this is were d3 sucks a big one.There's no more item atributes like crushing blow,magic find,skill grant...I liked that legendary and set effects in d3 ,and they should return but that was only good thing in uniques.Charms,where are they?Runewords are also a must,more than any.They could also implement new items such as power stones which would grant you bonus atributes to character and all new powers and skills non-specific to any character.Also they need to rework RNG system which is really bad in this game.I want to feel rewarded when I find powerful items,not see them raining like candies from sky.Blood shards MUST be out for good.They are ridicolusly OP.Right now I acquired whole Marauders and half of Vyr's arcana set with almost no problem.Gambling was fine in d2.Loot hunting should be just as it have ever have been.I understand that not everyone has 15 hours a day to play,but you really shouldn't be playing diablo if you can't give your time to this game.Whole end game concept shouldn't be there,I mean rifts and grifts.They are great leaderboards wise,but items can be acquired through normal means.You do rifts to acquire items and blood shards ,use them to acquire sets and so on.It's a vicious circle.Regarding the end game it should incorporate something similar to nephalem world challanges.The concept would work like this:you activate specific challenge and whole game world changes,bosses gain new abilities,are randomized,sometimes you have to slay their unique minions in order to get to them etc.When you finally defeat them you would get some parts of ancient nephalem device which would last about 1 month in game time before vanishing but in turn would boost your core stats,abilities ,magic find and other useful effects.This would make challenge good for replay value.Another type of challenge would incorporate some RTS elements but nothing too hardcore(this is ARPG game at its core) where you could build some villages and machinery to do siege battles against Prime evils itself.Interface would be still diablo-ish but you could always stop game time and plan where your followers could attack via some sort of siege wheel where you could access tactics on go.Again these are just 2 types of challanges I came up with but with little brainstorming there could be much more.This is what I want in d4.Again you could go casual loot hunt whenever you want.PvP should also return but with more depth(clan wars,specific PvP items).There should be less difficulties-normal,nightmare,hell,madness and destruction.All items should be worked around that to avoid power creep. Things that should return Kanai's cube-although nerfed-for me no need of that upgrade rare item Pets-useful for gold pickup but with some QoL improvments(gems,materials pickup) PvP Things that shouldn't return Achievements-seriously,except for bragging there's really no need for this Destuction's end In the end I'm really hoping Blizzard will get their head out of their a**s and turn this franchise in what it used to be.People say that we have waited d3 for 10 years and d4 won't come anytime soon but just remember d2 came after 4.If nothing, I'm really hoping for PROPER REMASTER of d2 with maybe two prequel acts.Please Blizzard don't make this franchise fall in dark just as Aidan did.And my fellow friends tnx for taking time to read this post.19
Diablo 4? Hold your horses Blizz
After beatdown D3 receives for its shallowness you want to further destroy once great franchise? I would think twice. So far Path of Exile is doing better job despite being free than what you guys doing for money. Concerned fan17
Diablo 3 vs Titan Quest
have you played both of them and if so: which one did you enjoy more? I think overall TQ is the better game. Now dont get me wrong, I think D3 is awesome, I enjoyed it very much. But the main thing that TQ shines with is variety. There are so many more class combinations you are able to try out. In D3, after you have tried every class and cleared at least normal with a few of them, you feel kinda 'meh, now what'. Sure, you can go try harder difficulties, but that only works if you really enjoy the fact that it just becomes harder. Is there any Nightmare+ exclusive content, like new bosses? There sure is in TQ. Also in TQ you can just try more classes and their combinations. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the TQ campaign also longer than D3's? I am not sure. Overall, after having tried out all 5 of the classes and played a monk through nightmare, the games gives me no more reason to play it anymore, but that's just me.81
Remastered Diablo & Diablo 2
I've searched this forum, and got no near match for what I'm looking for. I wish to encourage Blizzard to take their off time on a saturday, and start a little kitchen project of sorts, and rebuild Diablo 1 and Diablo 2 with Diablo 3 graphics. Same Story/Items/Skills/Maps, everything exactly the same. Just use the new engine. The reason a remaster will be good, is because players (like my girlfriend) want to catch up, or some simply want to refresh their lore about the game series. Problem is, if you look at the previous games through a 24" monitor, your eyes tend to start bleeding after 30minutes! And playing in a window is like playing pacman, except you chew on Wirt's leg. Face it, those games were awesome, we would gladly like to see that experience in HD. Think of it of a way to say thank you for being loyal customers. Would prolly shed a tear if this should ever surface. Tell me what guys think? Maybe a little blue post tease? PS to all haters & Idolizers, previous diablo games were not perfect, or solid at release. Doesn't anyone read patch logs? If you sqeeze them together, you get something that smokes Decard Cains' journal to smithereens. Thus, just be grateful the internet is still open source, and that theres power coming from your wall socket.63
