Diablo III Reaper of Souls Launch Party

Blizzard will host a launch party in Los Angeles this evening to kick off tomorrow's launch of the new Reaper of Souls expansion for Diablo III, their action/RPG sequel. The add-on should go live around midnight eastern time, and right around that time Game Director Josh Mosqueira and Senior Technical Game Designer Wyatt Cheng will be on the Diablo Twitch channel to celebrate the launch. Word is: "Josh and Wyatt will be coming to you live from the altar of the Vibiana to share the highlights of the evening's event and give a deeper look into Reaper of Souls and its development." This page has launch details for Reaper of Souls, including when it will be live in various territories.

I'm playing D3 right now for the first time & pretty much enjoying it. I'm level 21 Demon Hunter. I have a few legendary items I guess you're supposed to keep those.

I think I'm gonna sit out release week since the servers are usually pooched and see how reviews shake out. I've been enjoying Diablo 3 again which is nice but the same time Adventure/Bounties would need to go really far to keep me playing. Combat is super fun but I just find myself bored with the games systems after some paragon farming.

So yeah, gonna wait and see what people have to say about the length/quality of act 5, how the Crusader is and how bounties affect long term play.

Yes, I'd love to see a company (like Crate/Grim Dawn, Relic/TL) take what Blizz did with D3's combat and over-the-top ragdoll physics and apply it to an ARPG that actually has you build a character that you care about because you actually put some thought into the build.

While I do have fun sending baddies 30' into the air with D3, I don't feel any attachment to my character(s) as pretty much everything is automated and there is no accountability behind building a character, no sense of ownership.

D3 is fun, but after about an hour or so of playing I find myself exiting to play something else out of boredom, even with coop. Fun but very shallow, which can be good at times for short bursts extreme demon killing.

Not to be debbie downer either but the buzz around the Crusader class wasn't very good in beta. Supposedly very slow and underpowered compared to other classes. Some of their loot seems to have the 1.0 design mentality too "remove X crappy downside from Y ability" instead of doing something really cool.

I'll be anxious to hear what people here think of them once they get into Torment. After playing a Wizard it is really hard to play anything else, they are just too damned good.

I’m off work tomorrow so I’ll be on tonight since I’m west coast. My plan is to play the Crusader all the way through tonight and get up tomorrow and finish it off. Since I play a Monk and a Barb, I will give you the feedback you’re looking for.

I’m really hoping the Crusader is not what you are saying. I have always preferred the Paladin when playing. So it will be a hugh disappointment if this class is underpowered. I’m already concerned about this class not getting the 30 percent damage resistance like the Monk and Barb has.

Any takers on you know who showing up and giving us all crap?

I did some paragon leveling this weekend and was really enjoying the game. Got a few legendary drops, one of which was a nice pair of burning boots, and crafted (dropped pattern) an awesome set wand for my wizard. Probably need to work on my wizard's build some though. I can do massive burst damage, but I run out of mana fast and have to real watch my cooldowns.

Firewalker boots are awesome indeed ,) BUt as for Wizard equipment.. I crafted me an extremely powerful 2 handed axe from a unique plan I found for my wizard... I know.. 2 handed axe, wtf right? But look at the stats...

http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/eRe4s3r-2812/hero/2477561

It's gonna be a while until I find something that can bring me back to wand and off-hand with that kind of damage boost.

Aside that I have been really unlucky with drops for my Wizard ;/ But I can run around and not be MANA starved ;p Also Archon is only there for the on-cast-damage boost. Usually I have teleport there.

Compared to my DH anyway

http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/eRe4s3r-2812/hero/2045101
(Note the Amulet and Cloak which gives me 3 immortal wolves ! ;p) And as I found only physical damage boosts, all my skill are focused on physical damage where possible...

For the record, my Wizard, With Doctor and Barb are 100% AH free.

Plans include sitting in Act IV around 830pm on Torment 1 with the Demon Hunter and waiting for the global comment saying it's live. Cautiously optimistic the launch will go off without too much of a hitch. I can hear someone screaming ERROR37 in the back of my head somewhere though. Wish that voice would stfu . I will def post my thoughts sometime Tuesday; I will not be touching the Crusader for a few days.

I plan to level one of my 60 chars to 70 before starting a Crusader. Marquise gems (current maximum level and ludicrously expensive) are supposed to drop like candy from level 65 onwards, which should make leveling faster. Helmet with biggest ruby, and hellfire ring, always. Liquidated all my radiant star gems on the AH before it went away, to have as much cash for the money-sinks as possible, so I'm currently rocking a sad set of flawless squares

Well the 12 14 year wait is fine by me, I am glad I decided to miss out on the last two years of torture. How did you all do it?

I been playing on and off (casually) the last two weeks leading up to the expansion which I will buy, sometime next week, after the 1st long maintenance outage, and 6 hotfixes. In the mean time, I'm having fun replaying all neglected characters, I brought them all to 60 in Master mode in 2 weeks.

It's an okay game now. I did miss the combat animations. POE still wins hands down on total immersion / support factor.

Blizzard , please do hurry up with the LVL 90-100 Necromancer Expansion, can we get it within 2 years? do we have wwaaaiiit agggaaiiinnn to play mundane characters leading up to this final xpac?

Not upgrading here. Not unless there are more changes. And PvP. I consider myself a hardcore Diablo player/fan.
I have a nifty blue line!

As mentioned here, you can ignore D3 and try Path of Exile. PoE is on-line only, a deal-breaker for single-player. It is free so you aren't out much.

PoE is probably more similar to Titan Quest than Diablo, which isn't such a bad thing. Easy sign up, no CC-req'd and a 5Gig download.

Yeah please do, I'd appreciate it. I'm sure Blizzard will address any problems it has over time but I'm really iffy on how much I want this expansion right now. Let us know how the new act is too!
