Changes and stuff:

- Make the 2H passive innate and remove the movement slow
- Completely redesign several abilities and runes, some of the laws and abilities like Consecrate are embarrassing
- Buff the wrath generators and their respective runes
- The passives need another go, a good half of them are brutal
- Make shields block some of non-physical damage that make melee hard to play

Can't say I disagree, but I also don't think they are gimped. I agree the 2h option should be innate, but not remove the movement speed penalty, just a 10% (instead of 15%) reduction that can be overcome by using additional gear/paragon to get back to the 25% cap. Wrath generation, maybe a small boost, but not much. Every class has some weak abilities, Crusader is no different. Shields don't need to block elemental damage, that's what resists are for.

Everyone seems to be using a different Crusader build, that seems to work. I don't even use Judgement and I do just fine. Again, I know plenty of people playing Crusader and not having the same issues you guys are referring to.

People need to remember that this is the first pass on Crusader...they have had 2 years to learn the mistakes in the other classes and are still working on them. Crusader had a ton of positive feedback in the RoS beta and were receiving high praise on the design of the class.
It's still very early, there is still gear and build combos to be found.

I'm not having a problem with it, the class itself is just really underpowered compared to others. I don't really care what random internet people say about how fast they level, their problems are not readily apparent while leveling.

Who is going on about how fast they level? You only referred to getting the Crusader to lvl 70. So I referenced that, as I have done so too. And I'm finding it definitely more productive than the Monk, which I finished Act V earlier yesterday before finishing up my Crusader. I find them to be about on par with the Barbarian, and my Barb was well geared from 1.08. But I find the Crusader to be far more fun and versatile than the Barbarian, but I'm still spoiled from the OP WW Barb build from 1.08.

Redmask wrote on Apr 6, 2014, 16:34:
Anyone can can keyboard bang any class to 70 anyways. They are noticeably slower than pretty much any other class at clearing bounties/rifts and their survivability is not really any higher. In the time it takes to run Torment I bounties I'd already be done and started another on my DH or Wizard.

Definitely disagree with you there. Their survivability is excellent. Maybe you don't have the paragon levels, maybe you have shitty gear, maybe you are trying to use a gimped build or you are trying to play a difficulty you have no business being in. I don't know without seeing your character sheet. But your opinion here seems to be quite contradictory to my own experience and most people I know playing the Crusader, which just makes me think you are doing something wrong.
I am playing through Act V Torment 1 (entirely at lvl 70, my other classes all started Act V at lvl 60) and mostly with level 60 gear still and I'm having zero problems surviving or dealing damage.

At TII+ for grouping I find them to be a drag on the group, their only real assets are two crit runes, one of which is sure to be nerfed.

On one hand you are saying their Crit runes are overpowered and going to be nerfed, on the other hand you are saying the class is underpowered...which is it? If you are using the 5 sec crit rune for Laws of Valor, then you are likely a selfish player...as the Answered Prayer Rune for the Nephalem Glory orbs is stronger especially for grouped play. 3 stacks of Neph Glory on full up time for 4 players is far better. Your comment of them being a drag on the group and also your comment about only wanting to play the class you feel you can gear up the fastest, also leads me to believe you are a selfish player that isn't really looking to just enjoy the game and playing with friends.

Redmask wrote on Apr 6, 2014, 16:34:
Why all the complaints about the writing? All of the game's predecessors weren't exactly Hemingway either.

People want them to do better.

So tired of hearing about the story. Diablo 1/2 were never about the story. The story has always been thin and simply to supply the environment. Diablo 3 they actually went way above what was needed as far as story goes. Is some of the writing bad? Yes. But its a fucking video game, not a novel. There are so very very few video games that I can refer to as having a great story with strong writing. After you finish the game once through, do you really go talk to everyone and listen to everything or even give a crap about the story? No. Auto-Skip Cutscenes and a lot of Spacebar.

Well all I can say is, I got my Crusader last night to lvl 70 on Torment 1, killed Diablo and started Act V without a problem and was still using a lvl 61 Thunderfury. He rarely dies and destroys everything. Once I get a new lvl 70 weapon it's going to be ridiculous.
Here is the link to my build. Majority of my gear is lvl 60 still.

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Krovven-1128/hero/45015283

Forgot that I equipped that new axe before I logged last night, I've yet to use it. I just enchanted it as it dropped for my Monk earlier in the evening.

Not saying they don't need work, they do, but if you are having that much problem with the Crusader, you are doing something wrong. I know plenty of people that think the Crusader is OP, especially at lower lvl's.

There isn't a bug with that achievement, that was fixed quite some time ago.
It's still there, believe me.

Ok, so how about "Grand Lorekeeper of Sanctuary" achievement, have you completed all the needed achievements for this one? If so, is it marked as complete, or incomplete because of the JoC achieve?

Also, a Blizz post here from 3 days ago regarding this and other achievement errors. http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/11161436067?page=26

This is extremely old news. This is exactly the reason Humble changed the way the redemption of games works in the account management screen, what like 6 months ago? Instead of giving serial numbers to be activated (that could be resold), you have to enter your Steam info and assign the games to the account. Or gift them directly to a friend to be activated on their account.

News Comments > Diablo III Reaper of Souls Launches; Future Plans Outlined
32. Re: Diablo III Reaper of Souls Launches; Future Plans Outlined Mar 26, 2014, 05:56 Krovven
 
So right after making my last post I logged in and played. Still on Torment 1, and was going through the area after Blood Marshes...up to the Ram. I first got a Rare 2h that was about 2500dps with 1000+ Int, no socket. Was an upgrade over my lvl 60 offhand and 1600dps wand with socket. Not long after I got a M...Reaver 2h axe, no socket that was 2600+ dps, with int and vit. I used that and 10min later I got a Scourge 2h sword, 2600+ dps, lots of int, has socket, 3000+ life on hit and an effect of 20% chance to trigger a demonic rage. Freaking sweet weapon. The thing explodes with this awesome green effect constantly anhilatating everything within about 5-10 yards.

Upgraded my Bracer with a rare, upgraded my belt with a new legendary (dps loss, but was huge toughness increase). Think I upgraded my shoulders with a rare too...now I have 600+ dps, forget latest # as I upgraded a few gems right before logging out, and about 3.5 mil toughness.

Good times. Hopefully will have time to finish Act V to
tomorrow.

I hit lvl 70 this afternoon in Path of the Drowned (Blood Marshes) and still playing Torment 1 as a Wiz. I'll keep it on T1 until I simply can't progress without dying repeatedly. It's only been mini-bosses giving me a tough time. Elites/Champs and Rare mobs have not been an issue.

Logged on when I got home from work, a couple hours after launch and had no queue or lag issues.

Started up Act V campaign on Torment 3, a friend joined and we did up to the Cemetery before he had to log. The mini-bosses dps output is insane compared to everything else. We had zero problem with trash and elites, then got destroyed many times over by Drygha. We dropped to T2 and finished him off. Once I was playing solo, again having no probs with trash and elites, then the next mini-boss (similar to Drygha) was a PITA again. Now down to T1, I did Lord Wyndmere (sp?) (forget his name) and that was another bullshit fight with respawning trash mobs, 2 mages channeling a shield on the Lord (that respawn) and the Lord would 1 or 2 shot me. I moved on and cleared to Urzael and he was easy compared to the mini-bosses. I was barely hit and never died, killed first try easily.

Methinks some balancing issues need to be taken care of.

Overall, loving the new act and the follower side quests and all the events that were in Westmarch. Wrapped up before starting Blood Marshes and I was lvl 68 already.

The timing of RoS kinda sucks for me however. I just started a new job in another town and I move next week. So aside from a few moments here and there I'm going to have to wait until the first week of April to really be able to dive in to RoS.


The plus side is I'll be avoiding the inevitable queues and server blips for the first few days.

There's already way too much XP. Playing through from start to finish on Hard (which let's be honest is really Normal) netted me fifty seven levels.

Ignoring your snide comments, for people that actually like the game...the thing is, Paragon levels no longer have a cap. Once you reach 800, every Paragon level point goes straight into Core stats category. It entirely depends on the player, but I'd say the average player that didn't only just get into the game is sitting somewhere in the 150-250 Paragon range, with plenty of people both above and below those numbers. There is still a long way to go to 800+. Any xp multiplier is a bonus, for both new and existing players.

My point was that there was no substance to what he posted, so saying "I do not like D3" was just as meaningful. Typically when I post about the game, I have something concrete to add.

Exactly. And he had nothing concrete to ever add before because as he just admitted he had only just bought the game a week or so ago. Then even now all he could do was gripe about Blizz having a poll on the new skills, because that was somehow a bad thing.

Likewise, even though I don't like PoE, I have made a few comments about it in the last couple years, but I don't repeat myself like a broken record about PoE's problems and praise D3 in every PoE related thread.

You can't unlock the mystic to mod equipment until you've played through act5 once.

Not accurate. She becomes available during Act 5.

Spoiler text
You first encounter her on the quest Souls of the Dead, in Gideon's Row of Act V after you have killed Drygha. She can be found hiding under a pile of corpses in the same area. She will accompany you for a short while (not fighting) and then will return to the Survivors' Enclave to join your Caravan.

Verno check my DH, search D3 Bnet for Krovven#1128. I'm using a Grenade build, but I've also gotten a few pieces of decent post patch gear.

The Cindercoat has +18 or 19% Dmg to fire skills, and 23% reduction to the cost of those skills. It was a drop I got while on my wiz, so it doesnt have Dex and only 1 socket but it still is better than my old Inna chest because of the stats. Add in the Grenade passive for more dmg and explosion range and I can spam Grenades for a long time without running out of Hatred. And I use Smoke Screen to avoid Dmg and get out of enemy CC abilities.

If you think I post nothing but positives maybe you should check the thread about Aus D3 servers from yesterday. I'm sure you already have and are just talking out of your ass as usual.

Aside from that...how is it shocking to you that someone that likes the game posts positive things in threads related to that topic and discusses those things with others that are also enjoying the game? You sure are special if you think this is some sort of abnormality.

Wasting time and energy constantly going out of your way to trash talk things you don't play and don't like, that is social abnormality. Considering you have now admitted to having only just bought and played the game recently, means you spent the last year and a half going out of your way trashing a game you hadn't even played, yet had claimed to. All the while trying to derail those D3 related threads into your praise of PoE because nobody was talking about it in PoE threads. That's just sad.

There is a "Force Move" keybind option. I find it hard to play without it as trying to click move during combat (to get out of poop) often doesn't work as you are just clicking on another enemy or a breakable etc.
