Diablo 3

20 posts in this topic

Hi everyone

Here you can post your Diablo 3 screenshots, stories and discuss diablo 3 related stuff.

i'm going to start:

I played a lot of Diablo 3 so far, soloed most of the first two difficulties, and I decided to join some public games when I started the Hell difficulty. All went well and I got into a group of 4 players, when suddenly a fifth one joined. We played with 5 people without any problems.

I hope 5 player groups is something Blizzard will still implement, seeing the functionality is there and everything works just fine. Being able to group up with 1 of each class would we awesome.

I only managed to finish the game on normal (2 player coop, Barbarian and Demon Hunter). I'm probably going to play on Nightmare and beyond at some point, but so far there's just no time :P

Having played both Diablo 1 and 2 over the years, I quite enjoyed D3. It's certainly very dynamic and well polished (not that I'd expect any less from a Blizzard release).

I was a bit disappointed with the story (some parts of it kind of made me cringe, which is sad). Also, normal mode felt a bit too easy. I know there are three more difficulty settings (and Hardcore, too), but it's kind of sapping my motivation to go through it all again with just slightly more difficult mobs :P

No screenshots for now.

How lucky you are to be able to play with 5 people Posted Image

As for myself, I have finished Diablo 3 in normal mode only today. To my defense, I have been busy working on these forums for the past 3 weeks Posted Image In any case, having never played Diablo before, I found the experience quite enjoyable, although the game is very easy up to this point. I would like to take the time to run the game in the harder difficulty modes, but I'm afraid that Mists of Pandaria is not going to leave me much time.

Here's a screenshot of my worthy barbarian beating up Diablo:

lol you are playing with the standard UI!

Also, I think MadMonk is playing with 5 people by using the public game system.

Yes I am, but groups have a maximum size of 4 so it still shouldn't be possible. When we were in a town there were only four banners around the portal, the fifth guy didn't have a banner.

! ! ! SPOILER ALERT ! ! !

(Secret Cow Level)

Most of you have probably already seen the youtube videos, but here's some screenshots that I made while farming it for items (Hell difficulty).

I relly like the way it looks, it's relly funny. The unicorns, cuddle bears, happy clouds and pinatas make it an awesome place to visit (LEWTZ!).

And the map just makes me smile everytime I open it.

You got some Photoshop skills!

On a more serious note, this boss looks just like one of the raid boss from Mists of Pandaria (check your Dungeon Journal).

Finally just killed Diablo on my level 32 Wizard. Found him very very easy and one shotted the fight. A lot of the Diablo boss fight tactics are very "Warcraft" so are pretty easy to pick up.

Am very eager to start working my way through Nightmare mode now which is hopefully more of a challenge.

From http://diablo-3-down.../diablo-3-demo/

How to get Diablo III trial?

If you want donwload Diablo 3 Trial version we havem’t good info for you. Unfortunately to download demo you must special trial keyword. You can get it only for people who bought original version of Diablo III. Ofc Diablo 3 trial version is for free. But ony for key owners.

Think you're all out of luck on the trial - unless you know someone who bought the retail copy of the game that can supply you with the key.

EDIT:: Looking at the English on that post / site, I'd seriously doubt it's legitimacy.

If Im honest I'm not sure what all the hype was about. I went through normal pretty quickly and although the story was quite good I don't think I'll be playing much harder difficulties.

The drops I kept getting where pretty useless for my demon hunter and I still went through the game pretty easily. Know of a few people who've completed the game on various difficulties, sadly it just seems a bit repetitive to me, without much interaction with others.

I co-op'd half of normal just to try playing with other players but even that didn't me interested for long. I think the game is too linear to play numerous chaacters at numerous difficulty levels doing the same things over and over without much character progression.

I was a D2 fanatic since 1.03 ladder... and actually i was in major hype for this D2 since 2008. Well, it's been a major delusion to me. Dunno why. It's a good game, but maybe i expected a bit more from my favourite trademark.

It's a fun hack'n'slash, but it can't really steal my soul like D2 did almost 12 years ago.

Sad :(

I might be wrong, but I'll hazard a guess that 12 years ago you were in a different place in your life, which probably made you more susceptible to being "hooked".

Surely you're right. A different age means also different perceptions of everything. I was a 16 years old teen when i was buying diablo 2 at the game store... now it's slightly different.

Maybe i got blurred memories... or maybe some nostalgia of the time i passed in d2... dunno.

I can't feel the same way, or even similarly... and that makes me sad.

Of course I don't want to whine / blame Blizzard... :)

I played the game, beat normal through inferno. Now I'm done, I'm not playing it through 500 times, then complaining that it's getting old and I'm outraged. I think I got my money's worth.

I don't get the point of buying stuff off the RMAH, but I do know I made enough off of the it to pay for my copy of D3, so my entertainment was free :D

I should take your point as a very smart idea... i have to get more loot and get my money back with RMAH.

I think the issue with Diablo 3 and people's dissatisfaction with it is one of unrealistic expectations.

We've gotten used to a certain type of gameplay over the last years from World of Warcraft, and we somehow, perhaps subconsciously, expected that Diablo would deliver something very similar.

Instead, Diablo III, as far as I can tell, has stayed very true to the heart and soul of Diablo II. Of course, some changes have been made along the way (personally, I find most of them to be improvements), but it's essentially the same game.

I'm not playing Diablo III anymore because I'm too busy with Mists of Pandaria testing, but on my way through Inferno I never found it necessary to use the auction house (the real money one had not yet been implemented). So, that is one concern I absolutely don't share with people, namely that the RMAH is somehow ruining the game.

I think Diablo III will have very good longevity and I believe there is a great number of people, part of the "unspoken masses", who are still happily playing the game and will do so for a very long time.

It's just jaded veterans that had a nostalgic feeling about Diablo II, and we thought we could get that back despite the fact that we were mostly in our teens when we played Diablo II and things are now very different for most us.

And of course, some players who never played Diablo II and were used to the style of World of Warcraft might be disappointed as well.

    • Firebird's Finery Future, GR NS 120 Clear
      By Stan
      Firebird's Finery will see some changes after Season 6. Quantum Warriors managed to clear GR 120 with their non-seasonal characters!
      The Future of Firebird's Finery
      Blizzard isn't satisfied with Firebird's Finery, because of its bugs. They decided not to punish players that made use of the unintended bugs and the whole set will undergo an overhaul in the next patch. The set will remain unchanged until Season 6 ends.
      Virnethael
      Firebird's Finery has been the focus of a lot of community discussion since the launch of Patch 2.4.1. As the patch and current Season settle in, we want to take a moment to share development insight on what's coming for this powerful class set in the future.

      Firebird’s Finery has come a long way since its original implementation. We’re really happy with its theme. It’s the Fire set for Wizards and puts you in a place where you can burninate all the things. That’s awesome, we like that, and we want to preserve that feeling. On the other hand, we’re not happy with the bugs we’ve encountered and it’s become clear we need to take a new approach. We’re working on a fix that will be introduced in a future patch. 

      So, what does that mean for Season 6? There are a lot of players who have pushed hard and reached high ranks with these unintended bugs. However, we don’t want to punish players for working within the parameters given to them. To that end, the current functionality will remain intact for the duration of Season 6. Once these bugs have been resolved, you can expect that the power level of Firebird’s will be much more in line with other sets.

      GR NS 120 Clear
      Quantum Warriors <WQW> managed to clear a Greater Rift 120 in just 13:38 on the European server with their non-seasonal characters. Chewingnom explained on reddit how they made it and pointed out the differences between their and other 4-player groups. The composition includes an Energy Twister Wizard and three support characters. What's interesting is they used a healing support Crusader build.
       
    • Quin69 Clears GR93 For Rank 1 World
      By Blainie
      After the previous record holder managed to clear a GR93, it looks like Quin69 has managed to get back on top of the ladder with a clear only 13 seconds faster than the old record. Check out the full clear video!
      The previous record holder was Michael (https://www.twitch.tv/rajimike) who also managed to clear a GR93, but only completed it in 14m 24.30s. Quin managed to clear the rift only slightly faster, completing it in a time of 14m 11.333s.
      Quin used the Uliana's Exploding Palm build to clear the rift, as Michael did. If you want to check out our version of it by Deadset, you can view it here.
      If you want to check out the video, you can view it below from his YouTube channel:
      If you'd like to see more of Quin, you can check out his stream.
      Note: For those of you wondering why Quin sometimes pauses the game, it is due to the huge amount of mobs that need to be pulled. It can sometimes take the game time to process what is happening, so to avoid lag he pauses the game and allows it to catch up.

    • Diablo 3 Chinese Microtransactions Detailed

      East, Always... into the East. -Marius in Diablo II
       
      Well an interesting piece of Free-to-Play Diablo culture has just crept into our collective laps! 
       
      I would imagine that many Diablo 3 players, such as myself, are extremely curious about the "other" Diablo. The other Diablo is the totally Free-to-Play version made for China. Many of us have heard the tales of being able to buy Stash space, or a set of crazy Wings. Well, Reddit user Apspd has managed to provide the Diablo community with some detailed pictures of the mythical shop. 
       
      What will probably strike many readers is the radically different look that most of the cosmetics have from those we have here in our Diablo. The wings and pennants and portrait frames look foreign (sorry) and interesting. Always the allure of what you cannot have I suppose.
       
      The original Reddit thread can be found here and I have linked the albums containing all the images below. 
       
      Wings
      Stash and XP Boost
      Pets, Pennants and Portraits Oh My!
       
      So what do you, the reader, think about these transactions being offered? Would you happily throw money at the screen to have this option? Let us know in the comments below!
    • Diablo Team Members Have Their Five-Year Anniversary Swords Made Into 2.4.1 Transmogs
      By Realbookwurm
      What do you get for five years of service at your job?
       
      I have often praised Blizzard for being a company with an outstanding culture. Not just you, the great community that have formed around the company, but also their internal culture. One great example of this is their years of service program which rewards long-term employees with unique and iconic items. 
       

      Nevalistis
      In 1996, we began a long-standing Blizzard tradition. For those who don’t know, Blizzard awards Legendary swag to employees for their years of service. The most iconic of these awards is the 5-Year Sword, an honor that many members of the Diablo team have earned in their long tenure. (Source)  
      The Diablo team have managed to make this particular tradition even more epic, and have committed two unique transmogs to the Diablo game in Patch 2.4.1. Those two unique transmogs are modelled on the swords given to members of the Diablo team. 
       
      The transmogs seem quite rare according to the post, and sound like they only drop from the person who was actually given the sword in real life. Considering the entire Diablo team can be slayed in game, it is easy to figure out where to get the drops, if you're lucky enough.
       
      You can head over and read the full post here. 
       
      What do you think about this tradition, or the idea of the Transmogs that are now a part of Diablo? Let us know in the comments below!
