Do people enjoy punishment? You do not have a trinity of healer, dps, and tank many are used to. It's not like they are going to be jumping specs between each fight... I believe it is meant more like you join a game, see your team, customise your character to match with their skills or abilities, then embark on the quests. If something isn't working right, you can switch up the skills, but you lose the Naphalem Valor from the unique monsters you killer previously, so it is best to keep your skill for the duration of the game.

Are there any deals for D3 right now? Not CE though. And anyone besides Murlock think D3 won't be on sale after launch for awhile?

 

I'm not sure if I should pre-order when the game comes out a week before a school test worth 40% of my mark. And 3 weeks after the test I'll be on vacation until the middle of July. So I won't get to play much until then. And that is why i'm asking if I should pre-order, or wait.

Blizzard titles really don't go on sale often, especially shortly after release. If you can stand waiting, just wait it out. But I'd suggest shelling out the $20's thumb.gif

I've had mixed thoughts about the nephalem valor system but I obviously haven't tried it myself and there isn't enough info for me to pass judgement on it yet. 1 pro is that it encourages you to stick with a skill build but a con would be to just leave the game and kill another rare or champion monster pack to regain the buff. I can't imagine it being that difficult to get the buff back.

I'm also doubtful that you'd be able to find DIII on sale for a few months at least. You might be able to find it here and there for like 50 bucks but that would be about it in my opinion.

If It's on sale for $50 again, then I may pre-order. But it is only $10... And I'm not 18 for a few more months biggrin.gif Does it matter if I use fake info on my Blizzard account? And do they allow you to change it if you contact them about it?

I have no idea and wouldn't suggest doing it even if you could.

Don't they use the ESRB in Canada, just like the US? If so, it's only rated "M", which is 17+.

We might have to be around level 55 to get out of nightmare according to this blue post.
Quote:
In my actual experience (admittedly, with a full build that reflects where the game was in difficulty a month ago), I had to push my demon hunter up to level 32 to get out of Normal, and up to 55 to get out of Nightmare.

And here is further explanation as to why PvP will not be available at release.
Quote:
We want PvP to be incredibly challenging and fun, but we want to avoid turning it into a truly competitive leagues/ladders eSport. We just don’t think Diablo gameplay is very conducive for that type of controlled environment where balance is paramount.
That said, we want to develop PvP as an engaging and rewarding system. What we don’t want to do is take a traditional eSports approach to PvP, where balance will become so important to a competitive ranking system that solo and cooperative gameplay feel a bit neutered as a result.

We want your characters to feel totally imba. Then we want you to enter some Arenas, send the scorched remains of other players’ corpses flying, and let the satisfaction wash over you — until your opponents take similar care of your hero, that is.

More info at this IncGamers links. Level 55ish, wow. This probably only applies to your first character though, before you get higher-end equipment for different classes etc.

Can someone explain the difficulties, is it simply changing the difficulty before selecting a quest in the character menu then the difficultly changes?

So if you have a 60 character you can make the game "inferno difficulty" and then go farm and stuff the hardest difficulty stuff?

Or can you make a new character and play the entire game in inferno difficutly?

I've never played d2 so im just wondering but i did play the d3 beta and saw where you could change difficutlys

You unlock the difficulties in the order of Normal, Nightmare, Hell, then Inferno.

You must beat normal before your character can move on to nightmare.

After beating a previous difficulty with say your witch doctor, if you make a new barbarian, he does not have that progress. He needs to beat normal for himself to unlock nightmare.
