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!This comment was edited on Feb 27, 2012, 22:20.
