After really digging into TL2, I will never touch D3 again.

I'll probably pick it up and I agree you definitely get your moneys worth if you enjoyed the game. I had about 200+ hours into. This game was great when the loot was new and when they were throwing out updates for better gear to drop, you actually had a reason to farm. Sadly now its like 25 cents for 10 million gold? Really no incentive to farm when you can spend $5 to steamroll the game.

Damn, I quit this game cold turkey but they want me to come back

 

  • The expansion is called Reaper of Souls.
  • The new, playable, mid-range melee class is The Crusader. Focuses on flails, shields and it is inspired by Diablo II's Paladin. Uses "Wrath" as a resource.
  • The level cap is increased to 70. This means new runes and skills for every class. And hopefully a fresh economy on the AH.
  • Act V (probably Westmarch) will be dark, filled with graveyards.
  • The final boss will be Malthael, the angel of death.
  • New monsters will include some nasty fallen angels like The Seraph, The Summoner of Death, The Executioner or the Death Maiden.
  • New endgame feature - Loot Runs: These runs will be completely random dungeons, with several levels and a random boss at the end. Clearing them would take 15-20 minutes.P
  • A new ally, The Mystic will appear in town. He's capable of rerolling one of the stats on rare and legendary items. Similar to World of Warcraft, he can also transmogrify (change the look of) items.
  • The Paragon level system will be now account wide, and no longer has a cap (you heard it right).

Say goodbye to the Auction House come March 18th, 2014:

 

http://us.battle.net.../blog/10974978/

 

 

When we initially designed and implemented the auction houses, the driving goal was to provide a convenient and secure system for trades. But as we've mentioned on different occasions, it became increasingly clear that despite the benefits of the AH system and the fact that many players around the world use it, it ultimately undermines Diablo's core game play: kill monsters to get cool loot. With that in mind, we want to let everyone know that we've decided to remove the gold and real-money auction house system from Diablo III.

We feel that this move along with the Loot 2.0 system being developed concurrently with Reaper of Souls™ will result in a much more rewarding game experience for our players.

We're working out the details of how the auction house system will be shut down, but we wanted to share the news as soon as we made the decision in order to give everyone as much advance notice as possible. Please note that the shutdown will occur on March 18, 2014. We will keep everyone informed as we work through this process.

Josh Mosqueira and I wanted to provide everyone with a little more information behind this decision, so please have a look at the video, and stay tuned to this site for further updates in the months ahead.

Wow huge news. They're pretty much throwing everything out the window. New Loot system, new paragon system, no AH. Sounds like a new game

All I know is that Josh Mosqueira must have an easy job considering that he just has to reverse most every decision made by Jay Wilson. It'll probably be another year or two before Josh has to think-up something new beyond the opposite of whatever Jay did. :booty:

Makes sense.  They've already raked in a fortune from it.  Removing it will spur more sales for the upcoming expansion (and possibly generate new D3 sales, too).  And Hearthstone is taking over as their new microtransaction cash cow.

Yea, they really need to change things up if they are removing AH. Hell, AH was only reason i was playing towards the end.

AH got me to start playing. i was able to recover the cost of D3 and Starcraft 2 expansion. I lost interest when my items (which weren't very good to begin with) stopped selling. I was hoping to buy the D3 expansion with BlizzBux, but that won't happen, now. It's a good thing, though, as my priorities for playing were bass ackwards.

I'm not a hardcore player at all, but part of the fun of playing Diablo 2 was finding rare/set items.  I never even beat the game on anything other than normal.  The low level rare items I was able to find, along with trying different builds, was enough for me.  I'm in Act 3 of Inferno of Diablo 3 and neither my brother nor I have seen a single legendary or set item yet.  Ridiculous, and also means that I have no desire to even try playing with a different character class.  I don't think I'll waste my time playing again unless I hear feedback that the upcoming changes have  seriously and impressively changed the way drops are done.

Don't worry, when you do get a set item or legendary it won't do your character any good at all. The last time i played i got 3 set pieces in a 5 minute window, but they were all junk.

This right here.

 

Diablo 3 made item finding extremely easy, but most of the items are crap. While Diablo 2 made item finding, such as finding 3 legendary/set items, take hours upon hours. Then you would finally find one .... and it'd be crap.

I think you mixed up the numbers.  I found at least 1 decent unique every other run in Diablo 2 but it takes forever to get a shit legendary in Diablo 3.

I can't argue the shit legendaries in D3. Yet what are we talking about. Every other run finding a decent unique you can use or trade? Not to mention have to trade a full window of them to get a bump up to the next level of items. Heck most of those items were just dropped on the ground in "free games" for a reason.

 

Think of it, where are you in the game? Searching for items for the Wizard you have 100 hours in? Right now you are trying to find that 250 ed 6os eth colossus and runes to match to make yourself better. Welcome to what D2 was as well, an item search for something you will never find.

I don't know what you're talking about, that's what I was saying.  You said it was easier to find legendaries in D3 than D2 and I was disagreeing.

From what I can tell, most of these new features will be free in a patch releasing at the same time as the expansion.

It's cool they're trying to improve the game and all, but it's too little too late for me at least.  Blizzard has just lost me as a customer for the time being.

The patch seems interesting, hopefully they give us a release date at blizzcon and maybe tell us stuff we don't know. The new itemization or Loot 2.0 will decide if I get the expansion though.
