I have no doubt runes will be reintroduced at some point. For D2 they added a whole other reason to keep playing. And they could have easily fixed the duping solution over the years.

why can't barbs have mana? certain skills require the use of magic...make sense...they just can't use them regularly and magic is only to buff physical skills. also cube was great for combining items gems, runes, etc and for rerolling charms. what about opening cows and ubers?

the lack of cube is weird to me and i'm very unsure how they will implement those aspects if they haven't already taken them out.

while i'm on the tangent of ubers...i think it would be sweet if there were some kinds of global/server events that would either happen randomly to a game or there was an active way of making such a thing happen. process to launch the event should be longer then ubers. difficulty required to beat event should be extremely tough and require aspects of different classes to beat ensuring a social dynamic since chat is limited to guild and in game players limited to 4. by different classes i mean 2 or more to ensure dynamic.

Aaaand Delayed to Q2 -_-

Apparently Blizzard's definition of "Early" is as loose as their definition of "Soon"

I agree with most of that. I look forward to DIII's version of ubers or he secret cow level. Not to mention the inferno difficulty! The game should be plenty hard and challenging.

I've been meaning to check out the first Torchlight because it is apparently made by the guys that originally developed Diablo. I haven't bothered mostly because I'm busy with Dota 2 and the DIII beta plus it is single player only. I've heard good things about Torchlight, though.

Isn't this par for the course when it comes to Blizzard? (even before the Activision merger)

Only thing Diablo 3 related is that they're now targeting a Q2 2012 launch and that Beta testing is going well. http://files.shareholder.com/downloads/ACTI/1687027976x0x541608/d4938540-d45e-4b5b-87a9-f605bd542852/ATVI%20C4Q11%20Slides.pdf

Also, Torchlight really is a great game. If you're looking to dungeon crawl solo then by all means, play Torchlight thumb.gif

It probably is. The thing is though, Bashiok (CM on official D3 forums) slipped that they were going for a Q1 release in one of his posts, and then minutes later pulled it down and changed it back to "early 2012". Thus the community was expecting Q1..

Here's to hoping April release smile.gif

Yeah I just updated the OP with a link from PCMag explaining the game won't be released until at least April. Thanks for the link though.
