Great game... but the AH and Items are ruining the replayability of this game tbh...

You can get pretty much everything for cheap now so they basically removed the one thing that D2 was, which is item hunting.... Normally it would take you days/weeks/months to find some decent unique's and some more days to trade it to the item you wanted. Now you just hop onto the AH and there are 1000's of the item you wanted and pretty cheap too. There is no need for trading games anymore so they took out the social part.

Items are just boring in D2 you would hunt for super unique items now you're just hunting for some generic rare item and hope you get the correct stats.

No more chatting in chat rooms like in D2 frown.gif

Don't get me wrong this game is great for the first few play trought but after that i think it just missed the biggest part of what D2 was about.

EDIT:

Oh and i forgot... no more ladder resets....

So I was debating playing more Diablo 3 today, or stop and go watch Avengers Assemble a second time. Since the next showing is in 4-ish hours, I have time to play some more Diablo 3.


And then, this drops.

...I think the game is telling me to go watch Avengers.

I find the blacksmith crafting system rather pointless in this game when you got the AH. I'm guessing it's for low levels and ppl to waste of a lot of gold on crap items
Umm... the items generated are rare and random. You just have to level your blacksmith. I am currently using 2 items from the trusty blacksmith still. Granted im only lvl 35... but the rares you can craft have random stats just like a drop.

Just ingame options, really. Everything on high with anti-aliasing checked.

I agree. I like the idea of the auction house somewhat though... but I think they should regulate it. Like legendary or set items you shouldn't be allowed to purchase from the AH.

The main thing that ruined this for me (and like you, i'm not knocking the game completely because I have still dedicated every waking hour to it since release) is that there is no character customization. A player who has no idea will be practically just as good at lvl 60 and a player who is on point because every ability is unlocked once you reach a level. I like how in D1 and D2 you assigned points when you level up for a complete customized character build. That is the biggest negative for me. Now, the only thing that makes or breaks your abilities... is how good your gear is.

Man, what a disappointment
I think the crafting is more or less to fuel the auction house. I was dissapointed how easily it was to aquire rare items though. Playing through normal with just a couple "increase chance for magic drop" items i had every slot in my stash (literally the entire stash capacity possible) FILLED with rares on an ongoing basis. It was to the point where I would have to list rares in the auction house for 1000 buyout prices just so i could make use of them all, and since you can only have 10 auctions at a time, it makes it hard.

The blacksmith crafting though is more or less gambling until you get something you want, then with all the extra useless crap, you sell at the auction house. So I think that's kind of the point... I don't know what they were thinking when they made it though. Rare items are too abundant, and the auction house is not set up very well.

New blizz quote on the subject of the hacks:
Quote:
We've been taking the situation extremely seriously from the start, and have done everything possible to verify how and in what circumstances these compromises are occurring. Despite the claims and theories being made, we have yet to find any situations in which a person's account was not compromised through traditional means of someone else logging into their account through the use of their password. While the authenticator isn't a 100% guarantee of account security, we have yet to investigate a compromise report in which an authenticator was attached beforehand.

If your account has been hacked, please view the previous post for information on contacting our support department.

It was Wayyyy too many at once and at the same time. It seems the attack was very orchestrated
It seems to me like it's the most logical way to go about it. Build up a list of accounts and passwords, and then hit them in a rapid succession before word can spread and people can change their passwords, add an authenticator, etc.

its not just the HUGE cost to upgrade the blacksmith though, for the raw materials you need to forge your gear, you need that yellow tooth thingy.

I forged a lv 1x helm and it required 4 of those teeth and a bunch of subtle essence (which can be had for next to nothing)

Now, assuming forging a high lv rare item also takes 4 teeth only, which you get from salvaging 4 other crap rare items that you have. the cost of upgrading black smith is what? 10k from lv 1 to 2? 2x k from lv 2 to 3? just at what blacksmith level do you get to forge all kinds of rare gears anyway?

next thing you know, you invested 100k in upgrading blacksmith, salvaged 4 rare items, just to find out the new rare item you forged is also crap.

these rare items go for ~80 gold to say ~300 gold at NPC venders. If you're lucky, you can get one that could sell for 4-6k in auction house.

Just how many of these gears with good stats does it take to make the amount you used to train the dam blacksmith? AFTER taking into account the odds of getting good stats from the forged gear? also AFTER the deduction of the potential value it has from selling to NPC (technically making 4 teeth instead of selling the rare items straight to NPC is a cost of $500-1500)
