Man, I wish we'd get the Classic Butcher as a skin for Heroes of the Storm.

Just a super, super low poly skin. I'd be down for it.

Each dungeon level should be made to look like it does in Diablo 1, from what iv'e seen so far on the ptr is that each dungeon level looks like a normal Diablo 3 dungeon other than the visual filter that was added for this event. Blizzard should make it so that it's like a completely different Act with the classic Tristram town, and cutscenes, it would be badass.

I do wonder how much work it takes to directly port something over from D1 to D3. I'm not great with stuff like this, so I honestly have 0 idea :p

They mostly reused the assets of D3 wtih only minor changes to some monster appearence, in terms of visuals. i wouldn't say I was amazed with this decision but I can understand that for an anniversary event it would be a waste of time and resources to recreate D1 in D3 (and much more to recreate it as a standalone) and it is an adequate reminder for those who played the original of what it felt like (at least I got all the good vibes with the sounds, the items, etc), so I'd prefer they work on the new content they announced rather than working on a full recreation of D1 and by it further delaying content that is already late.

Very fair point, tbh. If they put a huge amount of resources into D1 event, especially given how much hiring they have done of late for Diablo, we may be delaying something huge (expansion/D4). I'd rather have either of those earlier than the event :p

It probably would look horrible if you directly grab assets from D1 to D3, at least because the resolution they were intended to be used with. Also, D1 was a 2D game and everything was drawn for that so it would be clunky, to say the least, to reuse them in D3. As it stands, they would be better off recreating everything and if they don't make money from that then there is not much reason why should they invest that much resource in it.

Yeah, the unannounced content is probably there too, although I'd think that those who were hired for that aren't exactly in the same team as the current developers of D3 and creating (or recreating) something in D3 would eat up resources from that part. Also, on the note of something huge, I don't see them coming out with an expansion at this point. Although I may be wrong, they were releasing content that seemed to be part of a scrapped expansion (mostly cosmetic/new regions), they will release a new character without expansion and these seems to be just drops to keep up the interest for the title until they have something to present, which, if it is a new game and they still hiring senior members (like a senior game designer for content/narrative), will be rather far down the road and we may not be seeing anything from it in this decade (which I hope not will be the case and we'll hear from it in the next 1-2 years).

Yeah, when we interviewed some of the developers, they seemed very set on the idea of recreation for D3, rather than simply pasting D1 into D3.

I don't know, it seems a bit too generous term for what we got on the PTR. Maybe calling it a "recreation" was a mistake on their part because if we're looking at it this way, then it is disappointing in almost every corner. If they were to call it an "homage" or something like that then maybe the fans had reasonable expectations towards it and didn't get that much negative feedback already even though it isn't even out yet.

I do wonder if over-hyping the announcement has caused this, though. Like, let's be honest, people were expecting a huge announcement. I heard talk of it "MUST" be Diablo 4, it "MUST" be X. I mean, people were expecting one of the biggest announcements at Blizzcon to be for Diablo, so no matter what Blizzard did, it wouldn't be enough. I'd say a fair number of people went into that event testing thinking "This isn't D4", "This isn't a remaster". 

Know what I mean? It was almost doomed to be criticised hard, no matter what.

Yeah, it was, but I think that is because it is Blizzard and people are always expecting to be amazed by their work. About the hype part, I think maybe this video summarizes well what happened, and although I do think that it was mostly the community's doing, Blizzard could have handled it much better.

Definitely agree and, on the video, was an interesting watch. I do wonder if Diablo-hype is basically just doomed for a while until they announce D4, basically.

I started playing this on the PTR and I'm wondering if the only way to play through all 16 levels of the labyrinth is to do so in one sitting. Seems crazy that there is no way to save my progress of completion, only having my character progress saved. Am I missing something? I can't even leave the game running or I'll be disconnected after inactivity.

Probably, at least if we by the loudest people, although usually those are the ones that are disappointed, so there is a chance that even a D4 announcement can get similar results by that standard :)

No, you're not missing anything. Although the original Diablo had save functionality and you could unlock different routes these things aren't there in this homage. On the other hand, it isn't that long either. You can rush through it within half an hour and I don't see anyone spending more than two hours even if you're going everywhere/killing everything. It's not ideal, of course, especially if you count this as a remake, but if you play is as a D1 themed rift or something like that, you'll probably get the hang of it :)

I feel like, if even a D4 announcement can't generate hype properly, Blizzard might as well just throw their hands up in their air in desperation and make a new game.

Oh, no, I meant that there is a probability that there would be negative feedback even for a D4 announcement. Not getting any hype (not even negative) may as well mean the end of the franchise in this form, since that means that people not interested enough in it even to hate on it at least. I hope that we'll not getting to this point and there will be a next game in the franchise (I would even love a SC2-style Diablo-themed game :))

I'm still hoping for a Diablo MMO, tbh. 3-way faction system of Angels, Demons and Nephalem. I'd so be down for this.

      Don't miss out on your chance to grab one!
      The only thing more elusive than a Rainbow Goblin in game is a Rainbow Goblin in real life, but here's your chance to grab one!
      To celebrate the Season of Greed, we are releasing a robust and thorough Goblin farming guide for your murderous, loot-craving pleasure! It will take you through a tried-and-tested goblin farming route, suggest some suitable builds and equipment adjustments for the purpose, and even shed some light on goblin farming metagame and etiquette.
      But enough talk - it's your turn to take blade and spell to their mischievous hides! While using our route (or your own!), take a screenshot with your Season 14 character and a double goblin spawn - and post it in the comments below. Your post will act as an entry in a random raffle to win one of the 20 plush toys we will be giving away.

      For the general rules of our giveaways, please refer to this post. The post-specific rules for this giveaway are as follows:
      You need to be on a Seasonal character. Make sure we can see your character and the goblins in the screenshot. (Console players, do your best with the pause screen, if necessary - we understand it is slightly more difficult to do this than on PC.) The giveaway will end on July 2, 2018 at 23:59 CEST. Multiple entries will be disqualified. Winners will be chosen at random after the contest ends. Grab your guide, grab your nephalem and get finding! You might even be lucky enough to find a Rainbow Goblin in-game and outside - as Abd Al-Hazir put it - a ludicrous notion, truly!
      This contest has now ended - winners will be contacted via PM once we have filtered spam entries, multiple entries and so on. Please note that this can take some time, but we will post here once everyone has been contacted.

      Check out our latest guides for Season 14!
      The latest season of Diablo, Season 14, launches today and we've prepared a list of all the best builds for you to get started with! Check them out and get ready for some greedy gearing with Deadset!
      Greetings, fellow denizens of Sanctuary! The 14th Season of Diablo brings a thematic concept to the forefront, starting off with the Season of Greed. For the duration of Season 14, all Treasure Goblin spawns will be doubled. While this won't shake the foundations of the established endgame, it will surely provide a handy treasure burst right at the start of the Season, as well as a shortcut to populate any of the missing cosmetic pets in your collection.
      -Deadset
      Non-Meta Fun Builds
      One of my side-projects during the Season 13 downtime was to investigate some of the more unorthodox build paths for all classes. This resulted in the addition of one extra, non-meta build per class - and more could come over the course of Season 14 if you find those diversions enjoyable!
      Seismic Slam Barbarian - a ruthless visual feast of a build, this cold-focused Barb spec is surprisingly tough and efficient; Shield Bash Crusader - your best bet if you want to pound demon heads in Greater Rifts, if a bit on the clunky side; Chakram Demon Hunter - the ninja star-throwing counterpart to multishotting builds, with comparable AoE and more fun visuals; Tempest Rush Monk - a fun and under-appreciated build that balances the fluidity of rushing through enemies with some carefully timed bursts; Generator Necromancer - a unique take on Inarius gameplay, focusing on lightning-fast scythe attacks and intensive resource interplay; Grasp of the Dead Witch Doctor - a no-cooldown, no-resource take on making corpses rain from the sky; Energy Twister Wizard - a surprisingly undervalued, but horrifyingly potent on the time-bending, whirlwinding destruction from seasons of yore. Why is Patch 2.6.1 a Great Time to Come Back?
      Patch 2.6.1 sees one of the biggest rebalancing efforts to the game since Patch 2.4, the strongest content Patch of the Reaper of Souls cycle. It builds on every good foundation set by it (class diversity, options for underused skills, the introduction of mechanically interesting items) and skyrockets it to post-2.6 damage standards. If you have ever craved a patch where multiple builds are considered top tier GR pushers and practically dozens of combinations are completely capable endgame farmers, this is the one.
      Basics Guides and Conquest Guides
      Before moving on to class impressions and recommendations, I just want to give a quick pointer to the new basics and conquest guides that I compiled recently. If you are new to the game, returning after a long break, or simply have friends that you want to get into Diablo, give those a read:
      Beginner Seasonal Guide - an introduction to Seasons, efficient leveling, crafting and gearing; Bounty Farming Guide - how, when, which bounties to do and the builds to do them with; Regular "Nephalem" Rift Farming Guide - quantity, quality, and methods for Torment rifting; Greater Rift Farming Guide - rewards, competition and strategic considerations for GRs; Conquest Guides for Season 14 - the fast track to the Seasonal Journey completion. As a guide hub, Icy Veins receives a ton of messages on a regular basis for topics like these - I hope they are of use to the community and answer a lot of questions for Seasons to come!
      Barbarians
      Beginner's Guide to Barbarians - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Raekor - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 14 Barbarian with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Immortal King (or Raekor) - Hammer of the Ancients Endgame Build  - A top tier, visceral build that emphasizes melee devastation and pulverizes his enemies to the ground with Hammer of the Ancients. Support Barbarian - Group-oriented build that the entire team depends upon for scouting, long-range monster pulls and protection from harmful crowd control affixes. Raekor - Furious Charge Endgame Build  - A spec that mixes the powers of two sets, combining the all-around utility of IK with the agile Furious Charge devastation of Raekor. Might of the Earth - Earthquake Endgame Build - This spec favors devastating large areas over precise shots, exerts a masterful control over the battlefield and sports a very satisfying rotation. Wrath of the Wastes - Whirlwind Endgame Build  - With a playstyle distilled to its simplest essence, the build opens runs with  Whirlwind and mows enemies down in endless, spinning destruction. Frenzy/Thorns Legacy of Nightmares  - More durable than most Barb builds, this spec nails the brutal hand-to-hand melee feel, slicing enemies at incredible speeds. Rend Immortal King  - Nearly forgotten, but certainly not powerless, this exotic build bleeds enemies dry with the DoT powers of Rend. Crusaders
      Beginner's Guide to Crusaders - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Akkhan  - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 14 Crusader with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Akkhan - Condemn Endgame Build - This build is the embodiment of the melee spellcaster fantasy, exerting powerful crowd control over monsters and decimating them in waves of holy destruction. Akkhan - Blessed Shield Endgame Build  -  This build plays on the archetype of using the shield as a weapon, charging it with holy might and reaping an entire field of demons with a single, mighty toss. Akkhan - Holy Shotgun Endgame Build  - The Holy Shotgun Crusader is a tanky, impenetrable bulwark of steel that absorbs blows and retaliates in blasts of pure, radiant vengeance.  Blessed Hammer Seeker of the Light - The reigning champion of many Seasons, the Hammerdin build is still a beast in terms of AoE damage and solo GR pushing potential. Thorns Invoker  - Likely the tankiest build in the game that is able to push into GR110+. Tough, focused and dead simple, this build almost Thorns itself to the absolute endgame. Sweep Attack Rolands  - This Crusader build revels in high-density rifts, shredding demons to pieces with the highest attack speed possible to the class. Bombardment Legacy of Nightmares  - The Bombardment Crusader spec takes assorted legendary items into a highly mobile, auto aiming and visually spectacular Thorns combination. Demon Hunters
      Beginner's Guide to Demon Hunters - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Marauder  - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 14 Demon Hunter with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Natalya/Marauder Sentry Endgame Build - This build focuses solely on the Sentries, providing Demon Hunters with a cold, calculating playstyle cloaked behind a wall of turrets and animal companions. Marauder - Cluster Arrow Endgame Build  - Requiring a deep understanding of DHs - the need for positioning and strategic companion placement - this build rewards you with great GR potential. Unhallowed Essence - Multishot Endgame Build  - This build embodies the lone, brooding archer that reaps entire screens worth of demons in massive, fiery bursts of arrows. Natalya - Rain of Vengeance Endgame Build  - This build transforms the elegance of Strafe into a potent tool that resets the cooldown of Rain of Vengeance, resulting in a potent, bursty playstyle. Shadow - Impale Endgame Build  - The Impale build emphasizes on singling out and bursting down priority targets, resulting in a ninja-like, elite hunting playstyle. Grenades Unhallowed Essence  - A deceptively simple build, whose sustained grenade damage and tanking potential outdoes many of its flashier counterparts. Fan of Knives Legacy of Nightmares  - One of the more exotic specs in the game, the LoN FoK build thrives at low health values and turns them to its own advantage - playing with permanent crits. Monks
      Beginner's Guide to Monks - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Inna - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 14 Monk with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Sunwuko - Wave of Light Endgame Build  - This unique ranged Monk playstyle blows demons up in screen-wide, incinerating beams of searing light. Support Monk  - Group-oriented build that the entire team depends upon for healing, short-range monster pulls and damage reduction from regular attacks. Uliana - Seven-Sided Strike Endgame Build  - Widely regarded as the most satisfying build of the class, Uliana enriches the Seven-Sided Strike visual with Exploding Palm detonations. Raiment Shenlong - Generator Endgame Build  - The Monk's bread and butter, this build pummels enemies into the ground with the sheer might of the primary fist attacks. Sunwuko - Lashing Tail Kick Endgame Build  - Building on the classic Monk image, this spec jump in, whirlwind kicks the demons' teeth in, and jump to the next pack of monsters. Exploding Palm/Mystic Allies Inna  - In this Monk take on a summoner build, you rally spiritual fighters at your side that burst entire groups of enemies with Exploding Palms. Necromancers
      Beginner's Guide to Necromancers - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Pestilence - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 14 Necromancer with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Pestilence or Trag'Oul - Corpse Lance  - This build alternates long scouting sessions while waiting on cooldowns with the utter devastation once Devour meets Land of the Dead. Rathma - Skeletal Mage - If you like to keep a tight rein on your minions with precise commands, leading the menagerie of undead at your side in a resource-fueled frenzy, this build is the one for you. Command Skeletons Inarius  - Turning the skeleton warriors into a vicious, unrelenting superior to Bane of the Stricken, this build is a Necromancer's one-way ticket to the absolute endgame heights. Skeletal Mages Trag'Oul  - This is the alternate take on the Mages build, specializing in extreme speed farming, while still offering capable GR pushes. Bone Storm Inarius  - While it took an undeniable nerf, this build is still one of the most relaxing, farming-appropriate melee builds of Necromancers. Corpse Explosion Inarius  - An underappreciated offshoot to the close range Inarius variants, this build is among the most visually appealing and satisfying Necromancer builds out there. Witch Doctors
      Beginner's Guide to Witch Doctors - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Zunimassa  - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 14 Witch Doctor with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Arachyr - Firebats Endgame Build  - Requiring minimal upkeep, this build spins a circular, no-aiming-required wave of Firebats obliteration around you. Simple, neat, and utterly effective. Helltooth - Gargantuan Endgame Build  - This staple summoner build offers laid-back playstyle with automated minions, excellent sustain and protective options, and even some space for crowd control. Jade Harvester Endgame Build  - One of the oldest examples of interesting set execution, this melee spellcaster trades the safety of range and hexes for aggressive dives and DoT consumption. Zunimassa Gargantuan Endgame Build - This build thrives behind a thick wall of Fetish summons and is accompanied by lumbering, destructive Gargantuan brutes in a pure minion playstyle. Legacy of Nightmares Spirit Barrage Endgame Build  - Emerging from a convergence of obscure mechanics, this build offers a unique, spell-heavy, bursty playstyle that produces some of the most spectacular visuals of the class. Wizards
      Beginner's Guide to Wizards - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Delsere's Magnum Opus  - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 14 Wizard with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Firebird (or Tal Rasha) - Meteor - Reaching for the heartstrings of Meteor lovers, this build channels torrents of arcane energy to conjure destructive, burning meteorites into a pure visual feast. DMO - Frozen Orb - Combining the Frozen Orb nostalgia of sorceresses past with the forgotten power of Slow Time wizardry, this build leaves enemies helpless, watching their frozen death creep ever closer. Vyr Archon - The oldest devotees to the Archon playstyle: Vyr and its complementary Chantodo sets got an awesome boost of power in Patch 2.6.1. Tal Rasha - Explosive Blast - Aside from its distinct cannonade of arcane blasts, this build is very attractive to Wizards due to its ability to include Sage's set for materials farming. Arcane Torrent Tal Rasha - Spawning off the addition of Manald Heal this guide offers not one, but three very fun, tanky, non-Archon lightning variants to build around. Conclusion
      In short, Patch 2.6.1 is one of the best times Diablo 3 has experienced in terms of build diversity and sheer endgame potential. A living proof that pure numbers patches can sometimes work wonders. Have fun and good luck in Season 14 - I leave you with my hour-long overview of some of my favorite builds in the latest patch!
