Touché good sir...

Stoked to play some beta tonight smile.gif (provided maintenance does indeed finish at 7pm and isn't extended)

Thanks for the update and patch notes! smile.gif

Nice that they added hardcore and all you need is a level 10 char. I remember seeing lots of people complaining that you had to play through the entire game just to get it.

Also pretty interesting that magic and gold find is now averaged between all the players regardless of where you are in the game. It makes it a bit easier so that the char with most magic find doesn't have to last hit the monster but if you are doing runs in a full game you're going to need a lot of magic find. It also says the average won't be displayed in the UI which I don't like. I wonder why that is.

Hey,

Play D2 LOD a lot.

Will one be able to play D3 stand alone, ( on my PC, without connecting to Battlenet) are will I have to pay Blizzard to play on-line even if I play alone.

If it is not on the screen by the time I get my finger off the button, It is not fast enough!

Hi there. A connection to Battle.net is required but it is a free service. You'll be able to host your own game and make it private so you can play on your own if you like. They require Battle.net to stop piracy, doesn't bother me because I always played on B.net anyway.

Zulli85 just said you have to login to Battle.net to play. thumb.gif From there you can play offline or privately. Are you asking about systems that don't have an internet connection?

You login to B.Net and stay logged in, there is no playing offline whatsoever. You can indeed play alone but you are still connected to B.Net.
