News Comments > Diablo III Reaper of Souls Launches; Future Plans Outlined
28. Re: Diablo III Reaper of Souls Launches; Future Plans Outlined Mar 25, 2014, 22:44 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
I haven't had any real issues with the servers so far, just a little bit of lag here and there that's probably on my isp's end.

However, the HP scaling in Torment 1+ seems to be completely insane. Torment 1, fighting a certain miniboss, my Barbarian was level 65 at the time, and the boss had over 330million hp, according to the health bar readout. That fight easily took 15 minutes on my admittedly lower-end dps barb( about 150k at that time, bad luck finding weapons).

Also, Act 5 seems to be AoE or go home. Every other creature spawns 4-10 of smaller creatures, and there are a few chain spawner scenarios where you can end up with dozens of trash mobs running around, soaking up damage. On the plus side I do see a couple exp farming strategies in the future, when you have some decent gear.

Got to level 69 before I had to take a break and go get some exercise and dinner, DPS is up to around 260k now with 2 socketed 1handers(rares, no good legendaries yet). My drop luck seems to be even worse than 1.08 so far.

Easily the most dangerous affix seems to be those homing Ice shards, that not only start doing damage instantly when you are in the radius, but they also slow then freeze you even as you start running. Those + vortex + waller or jailer = usually a death for my Barb, even with 280k hp, 800 all res, 78% armor reduction. Not sure if the damage portion of the ice is bugged or what, but it's way higher than the poison/fire damage affixes by far.

The maps so far have been pretty good, packed with creatures once you get past the very first act 5 zone. There seems to be a lot of side areas/mini-quests available too, I've been going for a complete clear of Act 5, but you can definitely speed through to the mini-bosses/boss if you wanted to.

Barbarian definitely feels weaker in the expansion than vanilla D3, but that's partially due to my generally shitty equipment as I level. Avalanche is beastly though.

I can't believe it didn't work like this in the first place... glad I'm taking some time off from GW2 for D3, they can patch all this shit up before I get back.

I'm almost finished my first run through and I'm 51 atm. So can I play with people running harder levels or do I have to grind those out alone first?

You can join a multiplayer version of any quest you have already completed, or join any friends' game in any quest period. You cannot start a Torment level game until you are level 60, but you can join one earlier(not that there is any point aside from getting carried/leeching)

I don't know about non-expansion people joining expansion games, etc.

Error 37 called, and wants to stop you from making the mistake of playing a Blizzard game on launch day... even if just expansion

Ah yes, I had forgotten about the reliability of the D3 servers under launch day load... hrm.

I have put entirely too much time into Diablo 3 already, so I already have 5 pretty well geared 60s, one of each class. It seems best to play one to 70 and finish Act 5, unlocking the Mystic, THEN going back and starting my Crusader.

Then the Crusader will have Jeweler/Blacksmith/Mystic, 4th storage tab, and I can easily steamroll him to 70, potential weaknesses be damned.

Although I do feel a cold coming on, I wonder if I will be too sick to go to work tomorrow?

Sooo.... is Payday 2 even worth it? I hear that game is a bit of a grind, and the developers keep changing the game mechanics.

Anybody actually own the game and still play it?

I know there is a free weekend going on, but I've already spent my video game time so far on D3/GW2

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.


Exactly, you won't miss out on much aside from excessive lag and some last minute bugs requiring hot fixes. I am debating not even buying it for a week or two, just to save myself the aggravation.

Lol. I went ahead and bit the bullet since it was 19.99 and I'm enjoying it. Can't decide on a class though. Everywhere you look, everyone sings the praises of the Wizard, but I found it just kind of boring after about 15 levels. I had more fun on the WD and Demon Hunter, but Demon Hunter seems to be the redheaded stepchild of the game.

All the classes are pretty lackluster at low levels, honestly. The game doesn't really start until you are 60 and have all your abilities, in my opinion.(or 70 in the expansion) At that point, currently, the wizard starts to really pull away from the other classes.

In spite of that, the game is probably the most playable it has been since release day right now, and all classes have at least a few builds that are viable up into Torment 1 or 2 at the least.

Demon Hunter will require more kiting on your part, since it's a dodge based class, with no inherent damage reduction like the monk(the other dex/dodge based class)

Fucking George R.R. Martin... finish the BOOKS before you contemplate raking in movie level cash, please.

The last thing fantasy readers need is another Robert Jordan dying before he even finishes writing the main series.

Although Song of Ice and Fire has really been going downhill in quality, it'd be nice to get an ending.

News Comments > Guild Wars 2 April 2014 Feature Pack
4. Re: Guild Wars 2 April 2014 Feature Pack Mar 20, 2014, 21:16 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
I'm still relatively new to GW2, but I really didn't think the Trait system was that confusing. Who exactly was spending less than multiples of 5 in any given trait line? The giant hexagons every 5 points seemed pretty straightforward. I'll have to wait and see, I guess.

Forcing people to do dungeons to get some traits seems like it will end badly. Currently it's near impossible to find groups for some dungeons at most times of the day, compared to WvW or PvP where you can easily play basically 24 hours a day if you wanted to. At least on my server.

Then when there is a group for a given dungeon, they only want Berserker Warriors with 6k Attack, etc.

I assume the cost to buy those same traits is going to be prohibitive, or requires excessive grinding of some new drop.


Still, the grandmaster traits don't sound half bad, although the last thing necros or mesmers need is any sort of buff.

Hrm... couldn't really see a ton of gameplay in that video, but the game is going to have to be pretty badass to make a dent in the Diablo 3 / PoE / Grim Dawn world.

Sacred 1 = not bad.
Sacred 2 = terrible DRM, had to skip it.
Sacred 3 = simultaneous release on consoles? Uh oh.

Good, but something tells me not very many developers or Gog themselves will spend a lot of time/money making linux executables for old games.

Still, limited selection is better than no selection.

Aaaaaand I forgot about this (IRL issues), and I forgot to sell my gems, and to look for anything worth grabbing.

Assuming you buy the expansion(ie. level cap 70) nothing was worth buying on the AH, since you cannot use the mystic on legacy items.

If you are not going to buy the expansion, then still you most likely didn't miss out on anything worthwhile, not counting some perfect stat roll Mempo or something that somebody was giving away. Even without the expansion, lifesteal is reduced 90% at level 60, making most of the "great" legendaries a joke in 2.0


All that said, I've put in probably 30 hours on patch 2.0.x; I'll most likely buy the expansion. I only have around 17 million gold( no real GAH/RMAH use during their lifespan), hopefully Blizzard doesn't raise crafting prices too much.

Ahh, EQ, you evil son of a bitch. How many days of my life were thrown away punching alligators in the face and running from Sand Giants?(Monks ruled)

One of the greatest memories of my video game life was when I killed my first Sand Giant solo in EQ.

Probably the worst video game memory I have is also from EQ, camping the Beholder's zero weight bag for my monk for like 12 hours straight before I quit and uninstalled EQ forever.

So many cool aspects to Everquest, so many horrible design decisions, in hindsight at least.

Looks pretty good, if the price/drm aren't ridiculous I'll probably pick it up.

Magicka had some great aspects, good netcode. I don't see Arrowhead doing anything horrible to the Gauntlet formula to ruin this game, and they have slapstick violence down pretty well.
