Just for reference, I jumped in and did two Greed's Domain runs. I went from 4 million gold to 62 million. 62 million! This is out of control.

For reference, I only played Torment 2 (400% more gold) with my decent Lvl 70 Wizard. If you want to know how to get to Greed's Domain fastest, simply go to Halls of Agony Level 2 and find the guaranteed Goblin spawn somewhere on that floor. With the temporary boost, you always get 2 Goblins to spawn and it seems to take 10-20 Goblins to spawn a portal.

Anyway...totally crazy how much gold you get. Patch 2.1 is good overall...although I wish I could just do Greater Rifts whenever I wanted and be able to pick the difficulty.

Well, it's not like gold is really useful anymore, it's more of a hindrance than anything, for crafting/repairs/gems.

Also, login wait time when I tried to get on Battlenet, I guess everybody is trying to get a look at the patch tonight.

*EDIT* Hrm yeah can't even connect now. Oh well, I'll try later in the week.

Ah, "this post" link in the corner my bad.

Also, figures blizzard would just make the old versions worthless.

"-Upgradeable Legendary Gems added as a drop from G-Rift Bosses. Once you have one it will not drop again."

Wtf? Once again, Blizzard seems to think people play only one character. Considering it costs 10 million+ to de-socket a gem this seems like a huge mistake, oh well.

Two chicks at the same time, man.

Not a terrible idea, but I know for a fact that costs significantly less than a billion dollars, and depending on location/quality, may be had for free.

Hrm, I'll have to check out what actually made it into the patch, but I'm still leaning towards not bothering to play Seasons or any of that crap at all.

Also, are old legendaries that got new powers, ie. Depth Diggers, supposed to be patched, or only new dropped versions?

Rofl, 970 million. The human race is insane.

What would you even do with almost a billion dollars? Besides pay (assuming you don't abuse some insane loopholes) a lot of taxes. That almost defeats the purpose of most human existence.

Wtf, I admit I've not been paying a ton of attention to Elite:Dangerous coverage, but I watched that video... that game looks like it is going to be amazing!

Yet another game to add to the digital pile.

*EDIT* What the shit? The beta is $75.00 ? I assume the retail price will be less, and this is to discourage people or something?

Nearly unplayable, I'll have to fiddle around with them some.

*shrug*

I liked AP. The ranged combat was pretty lackluster but using a stealth + melee build was a lot of fun. AP also had the best implementation of choice & consequence I've seen yet. Almost every choice you make has some sort of tangible gameplay impact. The dialogue system was interesting as well, placing a great emphasis on reading your opponents, figuring out their personality type and telling them what they want to hear.

Same, AP was a pretty good game and whatever version I played back in the day was patched enough to not be an issue, bug wise. I did a stealth/zero kill run through, not counting maybe 1 or 2 cinematic kills, if I remember correctly.

That GOG sale has some classic stuff.

Yeah, I already own more than a few of those titles, and I'm tempted to pick up the Crusader games(No Remorse, No Regret) finally. I loved those back in the day. I keep hearing that the controls are terrible though in these versions, hrm. *coin flip*

So. You are one of those heretics.

Joking aside, I own a PS3 also, but I can't tolerate shooters on a gamepad. Mouse/KB is way too ingrained in my muscle memory now after decades of gameplay. Hopefully Destiny makes its way to PC at some point.

God, so glad Pillars of Eternity is getting close to retail release, but FOR THE LOVE OF ODIN, get a real editor on that article, RPGWatch!

"unusuable appearance" ? Surely the author meant to say "unusual" and just ran a simple spell checker over the article.

Personal OCD attack aside, game sounds great, I cannot wait to play it.

ps. also, "being an even bigger thread" *threat* ... Dammit. Painful to read. Some excuse given if English is not the author's first language, but still.

This is a good thing.

Yeah, you and apparently many other people like sitting around trading for hours or days, that's not for me. I'd rather be able to actually play the game and find items/materials for crafting(although crafting should be a distant second), but the extreme randomness of the crafting drops make it a waste compared to using them as currency.

Downloaded the patch, tried to play a little... their servers are still crappy, it seems. Desync and disconnect often enough that it makes attempting to play pointless during any sort of "regular" hours.

Passive changes seem pretty good, crafting still seems horrible, still forces people to be merchants/traders more than adventurers.

If anyone buys this, is this the same game again? Or anything truly different?

I wonder this myself. I know the engine is the same, and almost all of the units are the same, but are at least the maps new? After the last game recycled maps from all of the previous games, I'm a bit wary.

They've been selling basically the same game for years. I would recommend NOT buying this, unless you've never played the previous games at all. They are running this engine and gameplay style into the ground, through the crust, and most of the way through the mantle at this point.

If that's a real story, that takes some serious damned dedication, one would assume.

News Comments > Diablo III Gold Bonus
2. Re: Diablo III Gold Bonus Aug 21, 2014, 19:44 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
Yeah, the patch 2.1 notes have pretty much killed any desire I have to go back to D3. Exclusive Season only content, some of the BEST changes on CONSOLE ONLY, better drops in rifts only, instead of across the board in Adventure Mode (the better gameplay experience, in my and other peoples' opinion), etc.

I could probably tolerate the crappy Season only legendaries not being released to "normal" players for months, if they didn't also release some pretty damned good console only changes at the same time. On the plus side, the D3 console developers seem to really be on the ball, so good for console players.

Wow, I'm a little surprised so many people liked BL2, it put me to sleep. I couldn't even finish one character, and I had like 3 max level, loaded out guys in BL1.

Something about the gameplay was just lacking for me. Console-centric menus and inventory didn't help much either.
