Best bagel I've ever tasted (and the only ones I always buy) are fresh from Fairmount Bagel here in Montreal.

I haven't put in any Demon Hunter time lately in the beta, does it play any better since the retooling? It was a really awkward skill/dual resource mix that just didn't flow well.

It start getting better once you get the first rune of Rapid Fire. Really didn't like the DH at first - but when I went back later, found it enjoyable.

As a side note, you can start the pre-download if you've signed up for the annual pass...!

Yeah, and why should we even have "classes" anyways? You like having to level up separate classes, be my guest... just don't force me to do it.

In fact, why do have levels? I want my character to have every skill at the start of the game

And loot. I don't want to go through all that tedious killing monsters for it. Just give me a full Tal's set, a HoZ, a few HOTOs, a couple Nigmas...

Seriously? Not gonna even bother with that one...

You do realize that, if you want, you can have a separate chars for all the different "builds" you want to play.

You like having to level up again simply to try another type of playstyle for the same class...go ahead, be my guest...just don't force me to do it.

Then what would be the point? Let's be real. Nobody's going to waste their time making a new same class character from scratch in Diablo 3.

Anyway, the most fun I had with Diablo 2 was, like PHJF, building up new characters from scratch ESPECIALLY when I got new low to mid-end uniques and sets to try out. Diablo 2 wasn't all about the end game - at least for me. For me, level 90 was game over. It was time for a new build. Rune hunting wasn't all that appealing...

In Diablo 3, people are going to be spending 90% of their time in Hell/Hell (or Inferno whatever they call it now) and you'll probably end up seeing crazy item inflation like you do in WoW especially with the new Auction House.

I mean, if that's the case then I hope Blizzard has big plans for end game content besides fem-Diablo runs.

And no, PvP doesn't count.

What would be the point? The point would be...YOU enjoying the game the way YOU want it.

You just said: "the most fun I had with Diablo 2 was, like PHJF, building up new characters from scratch... "

You will still be able to do that!!

What? Are you saying, that because you're not OBLIGATED to do so, that you won't enjoy it as much??!?

Hey...I find a different weapon...I might go down a difficulty level and try out a different playstyle - but I won't be FORCED to start from scratch to do so!

If I play my Monk by myself, I can have my "solo" build with Dodge/AOE and whatnot...but if my friends come online and we party up, I'll be able with my same Monk to switch to a heal build to help out! Choices! Ain't it grand?!

As for End Game - that's what Inferno is for.

For those that don't know, in D2 (and D3), you had Normal, Nightmare and eventually Hell - all as a progression (ie: Act 1 of Nightmare was just a bit harder than last act of Normal...and it kept on progressing).

With Diablo 3 - once you beat Nightmare - you then end up with Inferno. That'll have a flat difficulty level (and rare drop rate) ACROSS the whole game! IE: If you want to farm whatever, you could farm any boss in Act 1, and you'll have the same chance to find that rare (and the same level of difficulty) as if you were farming a boss in Act 4!

So the solution to you screwing up your build is to remove builds and just let people tinker? Part of the reason I played so much D2 was because I had tons of builds for tons of characters. I had a trapsin, a clawsin, a hammerdin, a zealot, a fball sorc, a blizz sorc, a wolf druid, a summoner druid, a poison necro, a summoner necro, an elemental druid, a javazon, a bowazon, a spearazon... etc...

And I built them all, I had specific gear for them all, and they all had specific play styles crafted through use and time. I didn't just TP and swap out my runes or whatever the hell D3 is proffering.

You do realize that, if you want, you can have a separate chars for all the different "builds" you want to play.

...I really wish these games would take a page from EQ2 and UO, which have the best crafting, and put more effort into it.

Any quick link/description of these systems? A quick google didn't help me find anything that gave me a good idea of how different their system are (were...).

What was your position on the whole Michael Richards (Kramer) racist tirade? That blacks needed to get a thicker skin?

Stupid question (maybe)...I haven't followed up at all with Skyrim - but one of the things I didn't like with Oblivion (not that I played it a lot) is the fact that the mobs in each region were dynamically changed to always be at your level (or something).

Anyone knows if it's going to be the same with Skyrim (out of the box...I know there is probably a mod out there that changes this...)

This is a really smart move.. But I don't know why anyone outside of PR/press uses the word 'free' to describe a 144? Dollar expense...

Depends how you see it. If you always planned to keep on playing WoW anyway, and wanted Diablo III...you're basically getting 3-4 months free.

Yeah...did some more searching this morning, and apparently, it's under the Camera menu. Guess they wanted to be different than all the others!

I'll give it another go when I get home today I guess. It did look pretty interesting

Tried it...and after about 5 minutes, gave up on it.

Why...? Cuz there ain't any friggin Invert Mouse option! I just can't play without that...

Makes me wonder what other basic feature they figured they could go without.

I dont know how people even play WoW in moderation, as it is a game that is specifically designed as a time sink and 99% of the high-level content REQUIRES that you spend a significant ammount of time every day to even see this content.

Actually, all the bitching and moaning from the "real gamers" about the "dumbing down" of the game is actually to address that specific point. To ensure that not only the top 5% (or whatever) of gamers that play crazy hours and raid non-stop, but that pretty much anybody can see end game content and get the same gear (10-man and 25-man now share the same loot tables) without having to be crazy raiders...
