post #2641 of 29880
When Diablo II came out I was upset they adopted a noob system that just gave you skills for doing nothing but leveling up. Considering how well that turned out in the end, I guess I'm just willing to trust them this time.

I'm with you there. I've had my reservations about the skills system but Blizzard has never let met down before and I've got 0 reason to think they will now. Not to mention it is growing on me in the beta. Pretty sure that when the full game is out and people start actually leveling into the 30's and 40's the skill system will be vast and versatile. To me its like anything else in the beta; just a taste for you to get an idea of what it is and how it works.

I'm guessing you meant, "I really just can't imagine a max'd character complaining about having a diverse arsenal that not many people use an identical build of..."

And the complaint isn't that the character has a diverse arsenal, but that no choice is given about what is in the arsenal, or when it is added, and that in the end, every arsenal will be the same. I can not only imagine, but can completely understand that that doesn't bother some people or that they like it. I'm having difficulty imagining that imagining that it does bother some people or they don't like it is that hard. smile.gif

Not yet!

Don't be able to for another 4 hours or so. D:

I'm sure I'll like it though, it will probably confirm WD being my second class I'll make.

For someone who is an apparent member of the sentence police you sure do write things that are extremely difficult to read. thumb.gif

Sure every arsenal will be the same, but very few people are going to be picking the exact same skills/runes to use once we leave beta.

And what were the chances of seeing a hammerdin opposed to a... paladin?
Probably 3/5 were hammerdins.

Point being EVERY skill I've see thus far in D3 has it's use. None of this Holy Bolt nonsense that no one uses, or Necro's Teeth skill. Just a waste of space.

Not the sentence police, just clarifying what I'm responding to. The sentence police would just say something like, "...you sure do write sentences that are difficult to read." If your previous beard comment went past me and you thought that I was trying to insult you, I wasn't. I just didn't get it.

As far as what I've written being hard to read, this isn't a right and wrong topic. It is more complex than that, so i can't really explain it by making a series of insults and saying, "You're wrong."

For example:

Assuming this is true, the arsenals will still all be the same at any given level, and there will be no choice involved in which unlocks you get or when. In some games, that isn't an issue to me. In a tower defense game like Defense Grid: Awakening, you unlock towers in a set order and you change which towers you use on a mission to mission basis. I like Defense Grid: Awakening. In a game like this, the absence of choices in that regard is an issue to me.

Blizzard made a choice in the development of this game, they knew that those choices would have consequences - they would make the game appeal more or less to some people than others. They'll have the opportunity through patches and expansions to make changes that change who the game appeals to. They did it throughout the life of Diablo 2. Those choices changed who continued playing and who quit and who came back. If I'm lucky, something will change and I'll pick it up.

I've started to irritate my friends because I bring up Diablo III everyday and they don't get what the big deal is. I got one of them to preorder though haha. You have people to play with upon release? There is another kid that I know who is just as into as I am and we plan on sinking a lot of time into the game, we could use another reliable friend or two to game with.
By gothic I'm assuming you mean dark and while I do generally agree that the game may not be quite as dark as DII, I seriously don't understand why it bothers so many people as much as it does. We have seen only bits and pieces of the game for ourselves and everyone jumps to conclusions assuming the rest of the game is going to be as "bright" as the beta is. The fact of the matter is that there have been short (very short, really) clips of the game in the spotlight vids that look pretty dark and grim as far as I'm concerned. I'm talking like dark, rainy, foggy, moody atmospheres that are just mind numbingly awesome and gripping. Look at this below video and pause/watch it at 1:04, 1:18, 1:48, 2:41, etc. If you need the game to be any darker than that then just turn down the brightness/contrast on your monitor. Seriously, I've beaten the crap out of a dead horse on this one and I can't believe I took this much time to reply to the same topic again.Edit - New Witch Doctor spotlight vid!
http://www.ign.com/videos/2012/04/23/diablo-iii-witch-doctor-spotlight-video
Edit 2 - LOL this WD vid is amazing holy crap.

Leme be your #3 friend for release biggrin.gif

Also thanks for the heads up on the witch doc spotlight vid gona watch it when I get off work.

Barbs rule.

Think SC2 for a sec... every terran player has the esact same arseanal >_> as another terran, its his choice what he uses in his build. Every build has a counter, theres very few units in sc2 imo, but every time I see it theres things in peoples builds that are used or planned at the spure of the moment.

same with diablo 3, theres an huge range of build types and counters. Builds are not limited in this game to one being the overall best build.
Runes each having different effects on each ability, each having their own effect in pve/pvp. each having their own counters. if this is not diverse enough, the items you wield the enchantments you use, the team mates you have with you with their own builds complementing yours. this game will for the most part be VERY different with every players experience. If one was to google Barb builds, blizzard supplies 9 different types, and thats not even all of them.
