Nahhhh, that's the beauty of Diablo. The issue with D3 is there's lots of farming, but what you get after that isn't really worth it. Many articles and players are making this well known, and maybe in the upcoming AMA on Reddit tomorrow we'll see if they have any changes planned.

worth spending 300-400k on a random blue weapon with crappy stats and only attack speed @ around 820-875dps considering my two current 1h'ers are very good 640dps each?

HUmmmz, or spend all my money on a rare one with hopefully the best stats and only buy 1.

Monk btw

if one's goal is to only finish the game for it's story, then yeah it is very boring unfortunately. i kinda wish the whole game is a bit longer or was hoping the harder difficulties offer some unique story/side quest.

I uninstalled everything, deleted all leftover files/folders and went through the registry removing all of diablo/blizzard/bnet junk and tried to re-download and install but no dice, being looped around again .

I think I am going to just remove it and play it one rainy day in the future, I have had enough of this!

Hey guys..I'm not sure if this happens to anyone here but during ACT III (at the beginning when I have to light the beacons) I get huge FPS spikes when lots of mobs are around. I thought my 6850 would handle this game easily. Any suggestions? (All settings are on high and AA = off) I tried turning down the settings to medium but that didn't do much.

What do you guys think of this?

Or should I wait until newer tech comes out? Thanks!
I started playing D3 on my old Asus GS1 with NO problems... and that thing is WAY under spec. 1.8 dual core, geforce 9500m gs, 4g ram. So just buy a new gaming laptop and you should be fine! I bought my asus back in like 2007-2008... I have since moved to playing on my new desktop... but for stating off i didn't have any lag or anything... granted I had to use the lowest of the low settings... but still... it was LESS than the min req and still ran fine.

NOTE: I only played halfway through act one. I'm sure once I hit the large swarms and things in the latter-game it would be a bit choppy

it's nothing like what i'd have expected coming from D2, they totally took away all the fun stuff that was in D2
i don't mind the short and badly written story line
i don't mind the AH
but i do mind, not being able to STAT my own character as we did in D2
as some have complained in the B.net forum, by lvl 60 we are all just cookie moulded builds, unless you have good gear then your character is of the same build as everybody else
in D2 we had all kind of crazy builds like all DEX for a Barb, or all INT or all VIT for tankers, or a combination of 50 / 50 this and that, or some other combos
in D3 no, we have no freedom, we are just factory pre-made rolleyes.gif

I agree with Bobo that these were all KNOWN issues, however, that does not remove the fact that they were poor decisions by Blizzard.


Sadly while I have been waiting for D3 since first finishing D2, I am already somewhat over it. I never expected that I would say or feel that for at least a few years, and it is almost ridiculous that I feel that way within the first month. From a Diablo 1/ D2/ D2: LoD veteran with several thousand hours invested in those games, it kinda brings a tear to my eye thinking about it.

The nostalgia of D2 is personally what I feel has tarnished D3 for me. I now doubt that ANY game will have the same impact and staying power it had........for ME.

To add on to the complaints AllGamer stated above, I loved being able to spec my characters EXACTLY as I saw fit. Glass cannon/ Vit heavy/ Pure Energy, or a mix of each. Allowing me to make mistakes, and learn from them. Granted, that does not make for a fast progression through the game if you build a toon poorly, but it makes it YOURS.

This change is one that I have been dreading since they first announced it. There was no need to dumb the game down for players new to the Diablo franchise, however they did it anyways. What SHOULD have been done is that we should have been given the option of how to build our characters. Call it an "Elective Mode" for stat allocation if you will, but allow us to choose automatic or manual stat allocation. I also believe that the whole level 60 thing is ridiculous, but, again, I have been expecting/ dreading it since announcement as well, and that to be honest I can live with (just barely). We should have stayed with 99, this being Diablo, and not WoW : Sanctuary, but that is just my opinion.

Speaking for myself, the automatic stat allotment removes the feeling that it is MY character. I have no choice of which skills to choose from. I have no input how he/she turns out. There is no possibility of using skill or tactics in allocating more of a certain vit / str / etc. to add life/ dmg/ armor/ etc. None. I have somewhat lost all connection with my toon, and really have no feeling of satisfaction over making them.

That is NOT how I felt in D2. When I created a character, and leveled them to 99, I felt a sense of accomplishment and pride. Now, I feel very detached from them. There is no feeling like that for me. Nothing. It is completely gone.

It has been replaced with a 10 point achievement. sadsmiley.gif


Let me make it clear that while I have very big complaints about this chapter in the Diablo franchise, I DO, in fact see it as a good game. One that COULD be made tremendously better, if certain issues are addressed. As far as those other issues with the game, there are many areas that need to be tweaked, but that is not something I have time to delve into right now. Another night perhaps.

DPS is automatically calculated for you which means...1199 > 1148 even with attack speed...The only argument for attack speed would be if you had + Life/Hit gear which, you've said nothing about so, ultimately, the first bow is the best.

I'd like to be VERY clear about something...Nobody actually leveled their character from 60-99...If you claim you spent any effort on this, that's a bold-face lie.

Baal runs on Hell were the staple of EVERY SINGLE player 60+...There was little to no effort put into the entire process...It was a rush to 99, period...

The sorc popped in and TP'd to the Baal room for you...There was a portal waiting that you just seemingly hopped through then bam, time for minimal effort.

In this game, you actually have to put effort into leveling...There are no Baal runs where the Sorc does the work for you.

D2 made many of you LAZY and this is reflected especially on the forums...And somewhat, here.

Leveling in D2 was not this spectacle or difficult by any means...It took about 30 runs with a solid group and when you hit 99, that was that...In fact, you can still check it out today on the USLadder...

Hell, is also NOT difficult by any means in comparison to Inferno ~ Which, considering I JUST played D2 with my 99 Sorc, it's the exact same concept game to game with the exception of the frost skeletons/hydra etc which, if they had in D3, quite frankly, I'd stab my eyes out.

D2 was a great game but, it had some SERIOUS faults which, none of you seem to address EVER...Both games have issues.
