    As much as i loved diablo 2 and its expansion. i'd really wished that its long awaited successor would get a 3d instead of 2.5D view.

    so many diablo copies have come since then that its just boring now

    nevertheless i will give this a shot.

    me and my friends did a 4 man multiplayer and, being Monk, I was much stronger than everyone else so I was being a bit of a dick

    so when it came to skeleton king, they all declined the thingy and I had accepted it so it was just me soloing skeleton king, and I actually managed to do it on 4 player difficulty

    I'm contemplating pre-ordering this now. I completed the beta as a Monk who I will be playing as in the full game if I get it. Punches were nice and satisfying and felt like they had some meat to them. I tried playing as a Demon Hunter after but the class seems so boring in comparison and doesn't have the same 'oomf'.

    Does anyone know the level cap for the beta?

    Level cap is 13. Also I found monks and demon hunters to be rather boring, but they seem to get more fun as you level up and unlock some better abilities. I'll be rolling Sorc(fuck wizard) as main for sure.

    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.
    The health globes makes it a cake walk. I bet even on higher difficulties they just heal the shit out of you.

    "Hurr I bet harder difficulties are going to be easy!"
    Knowing Blizzard I can assure you, you'll be crying for those healthglobes to drop on inferno difficulty.

    I didn't say it was going to be easy, I probably won't play inferno on my first playthrough, but the one below it. I'd much prefer the none c/d pot mechanic and no health globes.

    You know how Diablo-type difficulty levels work, right? They're successive playthrough with enemies at higher levels and better loot. And health globes are way better than mashing the potion button.

    One of the most boring parts about D2 was going back to base and endlessly stocking up on pots just so you could spam them through on a bossfight and then teleport back and buy 20 more pots. I love the new system.

    Potions added that extra difficulty on top though since you only had a certain amount and it wasn't full heal crap.

    And what makes you think health globes are going to give you full health?

    Maybe not at later levels, unless they scale with level.

    Since there are lots of items that increases the health gain from globes by X amount(not even percentage) I can assure you they won't give you full health.

    Arcane Torrent: Hurls a barrage of arcane projectiles that deals 175% weapon damage as arcane to all enemies near the impact location.
    Death Blossom rune: Unleash a torrent beyond your control. You no longer direct where the projectiles go, but their damage is increased to 670% weapon damage as arcane.

    HOLY FUCK.

    Are the characters you play in the beta transferable to the real game?

    I don't want to restart my level 13 Monk and Barbarian.

    Nope, everything is whiped. Don't think they've said anything about achievements though. It's just a few hours though, it's not that bad.

    Correction: Achievements are whiped too.

    I've cancelled my pre-order, the game just seems mediocre in my opinion. Nothing has really made me feel 'holy crap this is Diablo III' or even that excited at all whilst playing. It's remarkably polished and runs very nice, but the concept of having zero offline mode bringing latency lag to a (mostly) single-player experience just ruins it for me.

    I really hate the lack of singleplayer.

    There was open and closed bnet for single/multiplayer in D2 so why not do that in D3?

    I'm not so sure I'm getting this on day 1 either anymore.. It's fun but I'm not sure if it's full price fun.

    It's connected to their servers so if your downloading and try and play you'll get latency lag

    I'll try to buy this game on day 1, My sister is really looking forward to it, but I don't have much money for it. My brother is also looking forward to it but he's going to South Korea during the release. Diablo 2 was a great way for us to bond, and we're hoping this game is has a similar reaction. It's a lot harder to communicate with each other since we're all over the place, but if we can find a time slot where we can just settle down and play, it will all be worth it.

    Will there still be weapon runes?

    (Considering there are gems)

    Edited:

    Because I can't wait to farm endlessly to find this

    It is always interesting to see how many El Runes it would take to create just one Zod via Horadric Cube transmutations. If you are only counting the El runes, it would take exactly 14,281,868,906,496 (14 trillion).
    However, El runes alone won't cut it. In addition, you would also need 362,797,056 Chipped Topazes, 120,932,352 Chipped Amethysts, 40,310,784 Chipped Sapphires, 13,436,928 Chipped Rubies, 4,478,976 Chipped Emeralds, 1,492,992 Chipped Diamonds, 497,664 Flawed Topazes, 165,888 Flawed Amethysts, 55,296 Flawed Sapphires, 18,432 Flawed Rubies, 6144 Flawed Emeralds, 2048 Flawed Diamonds, 1024 Topazes, 512 Amethysts, 256 Sapphires, 128 Rubies, 64 Emeralds, 32 Diamonds, 16 Flawless Topazes, 8 Flawless Amethysts, 4 Flawless Sapphires, 2 Flawless Rubies, and 1 Flawless Emerald.

    That fucking rune man.

    I think the game is way too dumbed down. Lack of uniqueness for the character is one major
    point here. Its just bash a few buttons, level up, select newest skill / rune and continue.
    Feels like they ripped the very heart out of diablo.
