hmmm... maybe i will buy it within a few days. i really want to play it now.
i'll give this game another whirl once diablo dumbed it down for all the WoW crybabies, i'm on act 4 inferno at the moment and i'm not having fun considering it's just repetitious kiting and putting up with unavoidable 1-hit kill AoE spam all day, not that it matters much as the repair costs are a nice goldsink whenever i'm sitting on top of 10 million gold which i've accumulated by selling shitty gear on the AH to stupid kids that can't wait to catch up with me.
haven't seen a single set or legendary drop though, all the gear i find is fucking retarded (+experience on lvl 60 items, all the wrong stats on class specific gear 95% of the time, the remaining 4% and 1% are either pretty good or have shitty RNG'd diceroll stats which i just end up salvaging).
inferno isn't even hard, it's just a gearcheck; hell was also pretty hard until i replaced all my level 20-30 gear with level 50 gear and i just breezed through that bitch like i was wearing rocketboots n shit.
at the moment somebody who bought the game has to give you their guest pass to play the starter editionis there a trial run? I WANNA PLAY TOO GAIZ D:
WoW had a more lenient curve regarding difficulty/gear, standing in the fire wouldn't instakill you, and you could avoid the fire; in diablo the fire instakills you regardless of how good your gear is, and you can't even escape it; especially with all those CC affix rares and elites.The gearcheck isn't likely to change, it's how diablo is..you're supposed to mindlessly grind for gear / upgrades so you can kill the next boss. It's not even cleverly disguised in WoW, you farm what you can till you get gear to move up to the next farming point.
