    Yeah the game has been turned into easy mode. I hope on the higher difficulties health globes don't drop, makes the game so fucking easy.

    Also it's annoying how the health pots instantly heal you, rather than slowly healing over time.
    im 70% sure i read from a blue that the beta is on a lower difficulty than normal mode

    The strategy of placing portals near the entrance to boss fight rooms for you/you and your group to use. Don't get me wrong, this makes things easier, as does the whole "you can discover rare items without using scrolls" thing, but I dunno, part of me thinks the game is way too easy compared to Diablo 2.
    "Placing portals outside boss rooms so you could run away made things harder"
    Wut?

    The health globes are there to make things harder. The potions are on a long cooldown, so you have to risk taking damage or getting killed to heal.

    I haven't heard this at all.

    And I also don't like the fact people keep spreading this without any basis...

    Please someone find the source for that.

    Tried out all classes except the Barbarian. I was originally going to play Witch Doctor at launch but now I'm leaning towards Demon Hunter.

    From what I understand normal is easier than previous games and designed to be the easy mode, while all the other difficulties are ranked to provide more challenge. That's from Zarhym but I doubt I can find the post right now.

    Monk for me. One of my favorite fantasy classes and I love its implementation in the game.

    I don't know if it's easier than normal, but I do know it's only part of the first act equivalent of up to Blood Raven or Tristram in Diablo 2 on the easiest of 4 difficulty levels.

    jar of souls event makes me wonder how you're supposed to get the 20-in-one-blow achievement

    i used the firebats as a witch doctor and only managed 13

    i might need to try it now that i'm higher level but still

    Highest I've gotten was 13 at once with Monk. 20 seems a bit far-fetched.

    I only got the one-hit kill thing by using environment shit on zombies. Wasn't 20 though. The skeletons in the Jar of Souls event are waaaaay too strong to kill all at once at that level.

    So yeah, maybe power level to as high as possible, then go back and do the event.

    The best way to get the 20 in one shot would be the runed Arcane Orb on the Wizard.

    Good thing Blizzard is stressing the servers though. Means (hopefully) a lot of day one tears can be avoided.

    I've been looking, but I want to see what people here think/know.

    Do my achievements carry over? Like Betamaxxed and such. I like the sigils and things you unlock and hope I don't miss out because I didn't max all the classes over the weekend and such.

    I played the Barbarian earlier, he's pretty fun. The attacks all have a good weight to them, you can really feel those hits sending demons flying.

    So for the classes we have, are there any more that will be in the full release, or do we have them all? Feels like we need the Paladin or something for another melee class.

    I saw a blue post too, but they never mentioned that and just that everyone would start on equal footing.

    That can mean character wipe, full wipe, or whatever, y'know?

    It's safe to assume that nothing you do in the beta will have any effect at all once it ends.

    I leveled up my character to 13 in anticipation that he'd carry over. That kinda sucks. Also is there any way to get a normal attack as a skill? Doesn't make sense to have a weapon with fire damage when it all gets converted to poison or physical when I use my abilities.

    Only way I found out was to turn Elective mode on then set your left-click as right-click, making left-click bind to attack.

    i think the enchantment carries over to the ability. the monk's first secondary ability seemed to vocalize elemental weapon bonuses fairly well

    You can instantly make your game public by the click of a button.

    a.k.a

    You're always playing D3 online. (cheat prevention and such)

    speaking of which i hope more yellow items drop earlier, because it kinda sucked to never see any until the boss
    Yellow is rare right?

    I got one or two of those dropped during the game, before the boss.

    Yeah, you could just use a hero and item editors to make your hero strong as hell. I remember someone showing me a item he made in some item editor, it had so much extra stats that the font was so small that it wasn't readable
