I will say if you're looking for a better story try out Path of Exile.
But the last two Diablo games (Diablo 2 and 3) have been able to maintain their ability to figure out how to keep their endgame content not so boring despite it just being grinding for better gear.
I will say I'm trying my best to try and not get back on this Season, there is only like 3 days left and at least being on the leaderboards is good enough for me..... this time.
This is the First season I've even actually tried to "compete" in.
I'd be more than happy to jump on Season 7, but I have to debate if I want to still be a Barbarian. As that's what I've been for D2 and D3.
I really would wish they'd come out with a new expansion to either bring Runewords or a higher tier of items to D3, I find it rather typical to have to use Green Item sets for almost every build.
I liked the approach Diablo 2 and World of Warcraft took where you would use Uniques, Mystic and Legendary items.
I do like the approach D3 used with Legendary items that gave close to twice as good rolls, but I still feel they can do so much more...
I don't even want PVP in the game, I just want a little more.
They stole the whole rift idea from Fate... lol
Jewels it feels like they took from Path of Exile.

I tried PoE along with a few buddies. We just couldn't do it. I didn't like the general clunkiness and lack of polish of the overall game (as a regular D3 player) and my buddies couldn't get into it either as it felt 'distant' or not organically connected or something (as non-regular D3 players). We all uninstalled it within a couple hours.

I hear it is good and deep (more similar to D2 I hear), it just didn't have "it" for us.

Diablo 3's problem is there really isn't much of a variety of end game content. Each different thing is going to have optimal builds, so to change things up there needs to be more stuff you have to do at end game. Right now it's something like 80% greater rifts, 15% Torment rifts, 5% bounties. A lot of people are just using their torment rifting build on bounties since it works well enough and you don't need to do too many of them... so all that really matters is making a torment build, and a GR build. Torment rifts and GR's are pretty similar too, torment rifts are just stupidly low level GR.

Diablo II got around this somewhat by making varying loot tables (different areas/bosses had different chances for item drops), and by elemental immunities. A cold sorc couldn't run an area with a lot of cold immune monsters.

There are a couple current builds that rely on the ring set (Litany of the Undaunted and Wailing Host?) that don't rely on 6pc, but I know there are only 1 or 2 (Crusader and...DH?). There are also of course combo set builds of course. While it would be great to have more variety, it is certainly better than vanilla, when everyone had the same yellow sword, or maybe a really well rolled echoing fury, manticore, etc.

On my DH all I switch out for Rifts and bounties is my Amulet, GR ammy is a Anc. Hellfire with 18% fire damage, 10%CHC and 800 something dex socketed with BOS lvl 69, rifts and bounties get Squirts necklace with 78% GF and Horders gem lvl 50, I also swap out my wolf for the ferrets and COE in the Kube for Averice band, I get a laugh out of watching my pet Skull scurry around the screen picking up gold, he will even go off screen to get to some gold in a location I can not reach but is with in pick up range like the mill in Dulgar oasis, I can be at ground level and the skull will go off screen back to the path that leads to the lower levels of the mill to pick up gold that is on screen, Mobs can not hide from my Multi shot!

While I will use a different build between GR and bounty/rift at season start usually (chicken build for WD for example), once I've gotten more to end game and I'm not running as many bounties, and more importantly, I've leveled up a faster class, I'll usually go lazy route and not switch. E.g. - the last couple seasons I've leveled up a 'sader and he finishes torment rift/bounty fast enough. Wizard is pretty quick too, and the whole firebug don't matter at torment.

T-minus 2 days until I get a whackload of mail in-game. I should try and fire it up tonight or tomorrow and clear out that stash. Maybe I'll pull an all-nighter tomorrow. Planning on seeing Star Trek, which I didn't have high hopes for, but it appears to be reviewing well.

off-topic since I mentioned Star Trek. Where in the fugg were all these young hottie geeks when I was growing up? For the last Star Trek movie the theater was packed so I ended up on the side aisle near the wall. Next to me were two illegals that were geeking the fugg out on Star Trek, Cumberbatch, etc. I kept chanting "I'm married and I don't like jail" whilst rocking myself through the movie with the hand blinder up. tongue.gif

Seems they are doing some big changes on firebird's set, let's see if it will work properly this time and if it still can do GR90+ if so i may reconsider doing another Wyz on S7:D

I know you can skip them automatically, but they still interrupts the flow of gameplay. I miss how in Diablo 1 and 2 I could just go to a boss and fight it without my character pointlessly staring and waiting for the boss to recite its latest poem before the fight.

Yeah sounds a lot like last time after Season 5. FB changes, twisted sword changes, etc.

Quick question, since this is my 1st season run. With it ending Friday, what happens to my stash if I convert to a standard character? Should i start extracting all I can and junk the rest? I've been hoarding items a bit and not sure there's enough room to merge seasonal and standard stash if it works that way.

I only played end of S5 and all of S6. What happened in S5 end to me was; i got a mail in D3 inbox (the mail alert shows up when you make a game, pub or priv no matter) listing all items i had on seasonal stash, as i choose some of them they appear in the character's inventory (not stash) and then i moved some to stash and saved them, others sold/smashed for gold/materials. Not to worrie if you can't select all items listed in one go, you can do it several times.

More experienced ppl might explain it better then me ^_^ but that sums it up i think.

.... i didn't choose to reqoute Skye.... wth xD
sry wasn't my intention

Zaen pretty much nailed it, I would just add that you have I think 30 days to collect it or it will disappear in to the void (it might be 60)

I cleaned my seasonal stash out of all non ancient items and even some ancient that I will never use, as for non seasonal gold, I have way more than I will ever spend as long as I keep playing the seasonal game___ mostly.biggrin.gif

I finally have enough gold to not worry anymore after a few more lucky Vault finds. Not as much as many of you I'm sure, but still more than enough for what I do in my spare time lol.

Glad my stuff won't just disappear too, that's what I worried about mostly. Still won't use most of my junk, but I plan to extract all I can. Once I'm not seasonal again, will my extracted powers carry over? I presume all seasonal is grouped and entirely separate from standard. So each season you're completely starting from scratch. That's all fine and well, just like to know what I'm getting in to lol. Looking forward to S7 so I can start from the beginning like everyone else and not feel so hopelessly behind biggrin.gif
