I'm level 49 now and finishing up Act 3 on Nightmare. I've been doing it solo so that I could get more XP, but it just takes sooooooo long to clear through all the trash. I hate leaving a map that hasn't been 100% discovered. Found some great high DPS weapons lately, so I have been putting them to GREAT use.

New to the franchise, and haven't had a lot of time to play so far, but I am LOVING it! This is the kind of game that makes me long for more free time!

What's everyone's battle tags? As I said, I'm not too far into the game yet, but I'd love to start building our friends lists and getting some co-op games going!

Pip#1962 is mine.

Feel free to add me and put that you are from AF in the message.

I don't get a ton of time to play, but I am more than happy to group with whoever if I am on.

Lmfao, tell me about it. All my buddies have moved onto Inferno, so I'm stuck playing on my own. My play time is going to take a massive cutback starting today, so it's going to be a while before I even hit 60. I'm about halfway through 52 on (beginning) A1 of Hell.

I wouldn't worry too much about lack of playtime. Here's the new Diablo3:

Act1: Fight the maintenance server boss to login to Diablo
Act2: Fight the ability to patch game boss endless loop
Act3: Fight the euEN usEN boss
Act4: Fight the stuck at login screen retrieving your hero boss

I have yet to have any of the issues you just described. In fact, I had my very first lag stutter last night while playing, but it lasted all of like 2 seconds and that was that. I really have zero issues while playing D3.

Blizz must really not like you folks lol.

Lol, I'm convinced that Blizzard has a grudge against some of you. I logged on at about 9 PM last night w/o any issues.

I hate that it puts you in general chat. Now I have to deal with all those clowns trying to sell fake gold and child porn, but I did meet a cool guy who gave me a bunch of free items.

Yeah, I immediately leave general chat. Ugh.

Also really my issues haven't been that bad, and having played wow for years (recently quit for good) I am used to patch day bugs and inconveniences.

Hmm, I've never been in general chat, and I don't get automatically placed in it either.

Also, while I don't think I've had as much trouble with lag as NoNameFace, I usually have a good bit of stutter when I first log in. It also tends to slow down when I run into my first group of monsters (I've died from this a few times). However, I usually attribute this to trying to run a very heavy-graphics game on a laptop.

EDIT: Ahh, I see, the new patch automatically puts you in general chat. That's annoying.

I don't know, I typically get that slow down on the first mob too and I always put it down to lag rather than my PC not keeping up.

Still in Act 3. Might be the last person who bought the game on release day and hasn't beaten it yet. XD

Lol, dang. It's ok though. I've been stuck at level 52 and A1 on Hell for a while now since I haven't had time to play.

Finally beat Normal! The cherry on top was the final boss dropping a rare Monk staff that doubled my damage output! 499.93 DPS in the early phase of Act I Nightmare. Not bad.

If anyone cares, here's my build/layout:

Granted, I'm much much further along, but my DPS is nearly 7K. I believe it's 6975.06. At least that is what it was the last time I checked, which was last night.

Wow!! Thanks for sharing your build. I've got a monk (lvl 24, Act 2 normal) and appreciate the look into what you've done! Just wish I had more time to play!

Wow! Are you a Monk as well? Did you get your weapon from the AH or in-game?

My friend did actually find one when we were playing co-op on normal. They must be extremely rare though, because that's the only one I've seen.

Nah, I'm a Barbarian, which is now level 54 (half way to 55). I bought my main hand spear off of the AH, but my off-hand I found.

I'm sure you already know this, but the Monk class only requires DEX + VIT. The game is pretty straight forward in the sense that certain classes only require specific stats to be upped. Wizard/WD = INT + VIT, Barbs = STR + VIT, Monk/DH = DEX + VIT.

I have found two legendary items, both of which were for Barbs. I guess we'll just chalk that up to dumb luck. I sold one of the legendary items for 85K, the other I still currently use, which is my gloves Tasker and Theo. I found both on 4P co-op Nightmare A3.

Indeed. Most of my items add to DEX. The stats aren't quite as simple as you say though, STR increases Armor and INT increases resistances. While DEX is obviously the primary stat for Monks, it's not smart to entirely eschew the others. Btw, I bought a new staff on the AH last night that upped my DPS over a thousand.

Nice. I'm still looking for my first legendary, still A1 Nightmare.

You can worry about resistances once you get to Inferno. You won't need it from Normal-Hell.

I bought D3 a few days ago. I played it most of the day today. My Monk is now level 24. I wasnt very impressed with the game at first, but now that im fighting massive packs of mobs, its much funner. The boss fights are more WoW-style, as opposed to D2 style where you just bash them.

The skill system is different. It lacks character customization, but i can switch skills for different fights if i choose to, allowing me to solo more content than in D2.

Honestly i would rather have had another Diablo 2 expansion, and have D2 cleaned up to how it was on patch .09. Im not impressed with the 3D graphics. I like D2 style. Add a few more Diablo 2 characters, more acts and difficulties, and im a happy player. D2 remains my favorite game of all time.

But i do recommend this game.

The skill system is different. It lacks character customization, but i can switch skills for different fights if i choose to, allowing me to solo more content than in D2.

Honestly i would rather have had another Diablo 2 expansion, and have D2 cleaned up to how it was on patch .09. Im not impressed with the 3D graphics. I like D2 style. Add a few more Diablo 2 characters, more acts and difficulties, and im a happy player. D2 remains my favorite game of all time.

But i do recommend this game.
The only bosses that really require any strategy are act bosses, which are only four


. The rest can be ground and pounded. The game is tons of fun, especially if you play with friends.

My biggest complaint is the difficulty. Normal mode is super easy, to the point of being dull, in my opinion. Now, I wouldn't normally mind that at all, except you cannot choose your difficulty level in this game. You have to play through on the easy difficulty first,meaning you need to put in a decent chunk of time before there is any challenge. That would be bad enough, but from what I gather, you must start on normal mode for each new character, meaning that I will never get to try the other classes unless I can bring myself to get through normal again.

Any particular reason you're spoiling the names of the bosses? You may wish to go back and edit your post.

On an unrelated note, has everyone seen the plans for Patch 1.0.3?
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/blog/6262208/Patch_103_Design_Preview-6_6_2012#blog

- changing Inferno drop rates
- upping power of Legendary items
- lowering difficulty of Co-op mode
- adjusting Inferno difficulty
- upping item repair costs for Level 60 characters
- reducing effectiveness of Increased Attack Speed
- reducing Artisan training costs; also, reducing gem combine costs from 3 gems to 2

Interestingly, the one that really stuck out to me over all the others was the last one. I'm not sure what to think about the gem combine reduction. It's been 3 gems to combine up since the very beginning. This is a pretty big deal.

Patch 1.0.3 Design Preview - Diablo III

- changing Inferno drop rates
- upping power of Legendary items
- lowering difficulty of Co-op mode

I honestly didn't think that it was a spoiler. It's not as if I told you what occurs prior/post fight. Stating names is only obvious, especially when it is listed all across the game even without fully logging in.

In any event, I am excited to see any changes to legendary items. Some of them are extremely worthless and should not be (for obvious reasons).

Well, be that as it may, we have a few people in the thread who have stated that they don't even have the game yet. I know when I have yet to get a game, I want to know as little about the plot as possible and take precautions to avoid spoilers.

I got it free for agreeing to a 1 year contract with Blizzard. While D3 is a fun time killer IMHO it's not all that. I definitely would never of paid for it though.

Spilling boss names isn't a spoiler. Every one of them are considered part of the lore. Strats for them will eventually be found all over the net.

The more i play Diablo 3, the more i am getting bored of it. Its just not that addicting. My Monk is lvl 30 now, and im dreading logging on. Diablo 3 feels like a spinoff of Titan Quest but in an evil environment.

All of Blizzard's games are very addicting and fun to play. Diablo 3 is the first i am disappointed in.

My point was that if you've played any of the previous Diablo games, which you should have, you would already know all the names that I listed. Nobody should be jumping into D3 without having played the first two.

Again, names are not spoilers.

I happen to know several people who have successfully jumped into D3 without playing the first two. Why is that such a big deal?

And considering how drastically the plot changes late in the game, I think the name of one of the bosses could indeed be a spoiler to what happens.

I feel like the thread has gotten a bit hostile, which I certainly did not intend, I'm just trying to keep the plot elements out of the discussion, to spare the people who haven't purchased the game yet.

Anyone have thoughts on the changes from Patch 1.0.3?

The concept of the real-money auction house is pretty nuts - apparently people are paying hundreds of dollars for top-shelf items! Almost makes me want to play full time and forget about a job.

You would be surprised. I know someone who has not done anything with his life since we graduated from high school ages ago, but has found various little ways of making money via the Internet. Now with the release of the USD D3 auction house, he has been raking in the money because all he does is sit at home and farm gear to sell. The last I heard, he had just sold a legendary item for $125. I have no idea why ANYONE would pay real money for a virtual item.

Definitely agreed. I'm not paying a red cent more for this game than the $60 I already shelled out.

By the way, you never answered my earlier query - why should people have to play the first two games before playing this one? I was a D2 fanatic in high school, but I never played the first one. Should I be disqualified?

I must have missed it. My mistake. Haven't been on much around here lately. It's all about the storyline. That's why I said it would be stupid to jump right into D3. If you played D2, you at least should know everything about where D3 was headed, and that includes all the bosses you would eventually face.

The game has more or less died down dramatically since release. They nerfed Inferno because people whined and complained about how difficult it was. That was like a slap in the face to the people who took the time to figure out how to beat it (myself included). Haven't played it since.
