Do you deserve something for your time? yes absolutely, my idea would be some new artisans to trade in over max xp for some epic cosmetics or trifecta items (for a lot of work) or follower upgrades (give my templar whirlwind tongue.gif ) or something, but I don't think getting such a high paragon level that you can find every new Legendary 10 minutes after the expansion hits is what should be the reward.

Paragon didn't screw over anyone as everyone started fresh regardless of hours. This is different, as some people who had tons of high paragon characters are blindly being rewarded for choosing multiple characters vs just one.

I somewhat agree with you. I can def see your point. Thing is though is your reward was having perfect MF/GF on a HIGHLY inbalanced OP farm class...meaning you theoretically could have banked an absurd amount of real money while everyone else who chose to NOT play barb (such as myself) were trudging trying to stay afloat (the beauty of pre-patch buffed monk). So you have no sympathy from me tongue.gif

Just think of it as objective rewards "get a character from each class to lvl 60" etc... lol. For me it was the opposite though. I had like 300-600 hrs on monk before paragon even came out (forgot how many exactly), so when I hit 100 paragon, I was ecstatic to be able to forget about him and move on to another class. After all, when you hit 100... why would you continue to play the character and not start a new one? ...the answer is efficiency. You were addicted to grinding the loot and with the OP barb class you were literally doing it 2-4x better than any other class out there.

Also, Paragon points will be spent individually per character - it has been confirmed in an interview. Which means that you may eventually end up with, for example, Str and defensive stats pumped into your Barb and then have your Wizard built entirely as a glass cannon.

And of course the other bonuses. They should (and most likely will) make up for the 'potentially' lost paragon points.

And I have to admit, from my point of view I'm pretty fine with where the system (yes, a lot still speculated to some degree but the general idea will remain) stands.
Well if it indeed works out as you have explained, then I would be fine with that. However, from the information I have read, it doesn't. Again, its all speculation though. From my understanding, they said all the stats would be account-wide, meaning no per character uses. I do recall them saying you can respec the points though, so if you DID want to go main stat on paragon points, you wouldnt be stuck with a particular stat forever if you so choose. Dunno though... the progress blizzard has made so far I have to say I am liking it. So i'm sure this will all be just fine.

Each Paragon Level adds one paragon point to all your characters. You can distribute them differently for each character

Personally I wouldn't care if the Barb was OP or not, I only roll str classes.

You got lucky with your choice then lol. Looking forward to our race to 100. In reality though I think I will be able to hit paragon 100 by the 15th.
