I liked the game when it was in closed beta. But currently the economy is totally screwed, and massive inflation is taking place on gear/skill gems. Things you used to be able to find for relatively cheap are outrageously expensive. I expected this to happen, just not as bad as it currently is.

A few months before the end of closed beta, you used to be able to get some OK end game gear for like 1 GCP per slot. Currently even a skill gem like Lesser Multiple Projectiles, that either makes or breaks your build is being sold for 2 GCPs!! Those used to go for 1 alchemy orb prior open beta, or 1/12th of what they are going for now. My cold-crit shadow won't make it past act 3 without lesser multiple projectiles, I've convinced myself its a losing battle.

Even at the current prices for orbs, almost nobody is using them, because I think people generally hate gambling, and they look at it more as a currency item, than a crafting item.

Considering all this, ill probably be back in 3 months after things settle down. I hate early launch in games like this, things are far too competitive, and I don't have the time to compete on these kinds of extremes.

This is forcing players to pick up and use what they find, because they don't have anything of barter value to trade for anything decent. I personally don't think this game is easy enough where you can do that with most builds, and someone's definition of easy, or doable might very well be my definition of impossible, and when I say impossible, its not literally, it just means its impossible for my patience to endure kiting around for 3 minutes just to drop elite mobs than can 2hko you. More like a 10 minute fight for bosses. Sorry, I'm not gonna play the game like that, and in closed beta I didn't have to, because low level rares were very cheap.

Also starting over from scratch really sucks. I had gotten in the habit of acquiring gear/gems for my future builds, that way its progressing is smoother. But currently its harder than I remember it ever being just to due how whack the prices are. The state of the game as it is currently is no fun for me. But it will eventually balance itself out like D3 did.

simple. dont pay stupid prices. if you've played CB, you pretty much know what fair prices are. people are trying to rip off noobs because they have no idea what the currency situation is like. things will settle down once people get to know their currency system better.

yah wasnt too happy about a few of the nerfs with 0.10.0 i'm a totem user, and 2nd totem just got alot more complicated then it was in beta. i heard alot of complaints about chaos inoculation as well and that nerf looks pretty harsh as well.

is it just me or have they actually made necro pets even dumber then they were back in CB? maybe it's just because of the minion instability nerf that amplified the problem with the pet AI, but i can barely kill anything these days as a necro. zombies pretty much refuse to attack anything that is not actively attacking them. and flat out refuse to attack ranged mobs even if they are being shot at....

I'm finding the game not nearly as enjoyable as it was before, and I got nobody to team with. I refuse to team with random people just due to the way loot works.

Prices are MASSIVELY inflated on skill gems and gear, as much as 10-15x more expensive than they were in closed beta. Trading with other players is currently pointless. The economy is just a train wreck, and its mostly due to nobody burning the orbs, and everyone trying to trade them for gear and skill gems. So there are far more orbs than there are people using them. The thing is, I knew this was going to happen. And this is part of the reason I'm not enjoying the game.

If anyone was thinking about playing the game, I recommend coming back in 3-6 months after the economy has settled down and prices are more reasonable for skill gems and gear.
actually the economy is inflated mainly because most everyone is playing hardcore, which they didnt do in closed beta. Also, the game just now released to the noobs, so people are trying to get theirs rather than offer fair deals. I personally even paid one alch for a fork just because at that exact time... i really needed it. Basically, right now all the people that played CB are trying to get one over on all the noobs... so prices are whack right now. It will even out as soon as more people know hoiw the game works.


EDIT: just got into game. so even tho i was #13,000 or something the wait isnt too long.
I have personally used a lot of the alchs/chromatics/ and chaos orbs ive found... other than trading.

Crazy though. Tried to log in a bit ago and i was #13,000 in the que!! wow thats a lot of folks trying to get in that they dont have capacity for... they are "in the process" of adding more capacity.

Had a lot of fun in the past two days. Lost two characters in Act 3 already rolleyes.gif I'll get the hang of it sooner or later. I'm surprised a lot of people are complaining about the economy. HUGE DEMAND/NO SUPPLY, what did you expect tongue.gif

Is it just me, or does this game sometimes present as a mirror image of the way it was on previous playthroughs, at least on certain maps or areas? I could SWEAR I was traveling left-to-right in my last session to get to the waypoint I just started from. But now, continuing to travel left-to-right just took me back to the start of the map headscratch.gif

Also, what damage type do Wands do, when used as a ranged weapon? I'm using a wand to shoot stuff, but see no mention anywhere what type of damage I'm doing ... is it just regular physical damage? And are all wands the same in terms of the ranged damage they deal?

I highly recommend downsampling in this game if you have a lot of GPU power. Presently playing at 2880x1800 downscaled to 1920x1200, my cards still barely break a sweat, and the game looks noticeably crisper.

Does anyone know how to make the cursor larger? Mine is so small I lose track of it ALL the time. It's hella frustrating ...

What does the stat 'quality' mean, btw?

And my last n00b question (for right now tongue.gif) does the inventory size ever grow, and if so, when? It's seriously like RIDICULOUSLY small ...
