Diablo 3 new patch


Monte Carlo

Recommended Posts

So the new D3 patch with some free, early 'Reaper of Souls' content / changes is currently downloading. This patch is the size of the internet (OK, it's 11.74 GB on top of a whole load of other stuff that Blizzard swamped my puter with).

 

Anyhoo glancing at the patch notes it appears you can make your own group / guilds etc.

 

I know there are some fellow ARPG fans here, in fact some of you are my current D3 friends and I have some of your loot which I put on the auction house might have lost.

 

So who is up for a new guild / group using this feature?

 

I'll be playing on both PS4 (with MC Junior) and on PC depending too.

11.74 GB? Are they finally making the game able to play offline? If not, it's bat****crazy for a patch O.o People with traffic quotas would be not very happy...

Does it have PVP yet? Items that matter and make sense (i.e. not just stats hoarding with swords for sorceress)? The RMAH should be closed in the near future, are the drop rates fixed yet? And I presume the whole "all skills accessible all the time with minor delay" thing is still present. As is the laggy serverside singleplayer, huh? Sounds like fun.

There's some sort of server issues and the update won't update. Pffffft.

Blizzard server issues during a big update or something? Shocker. :biggrin: Could be lots o' folks trying to DL it.

Could be. Point is they often have issues being ready. Not saying they're the only ones - many do these days sometimes - it's just amusing, especially when I was a part of it many times.

I used to have 99% achievements and only had like 2 or 3 left. Now it's dropped down to 45%. lol

I usually play solo, but I maybe up for that new guild of yours!

It's great that D3 gets this big wipe (disguised as 2.0) and gets lots of new stuff to do. :)

I had a blast on the PS3 version as compared to the pc version due to the better loot, so I look forward to this patch, the release of the expansion and the PS4 version especially since it plays wells on a controller and would really enjoy a clan/guild of members here to play with.

Well after about three hours of playing, I probably have at least 25-30 upgrade items for my characters. Legendary drops have all been upgrades. Also had the below flail drop for me for a crusader which I'll keep for now until the expansion is released.

 

Crusader Flail. No idea if it's good or not.

The crafting has changed heaps. I just realised all my Tomes of Secrets have changed to Demon Essences. There's no more pages or books anymore. And a few of the salvage items have changed too. Interesting stuff. Also, there's a new White Gem called the Diamond.

 

Had a blast playing this. Considering I gave up on it nearly a year ago, I was really dreading the expansion thinking it wouldn't add much to the game. Now, it's like a whole new game. The new achievements kind of give away parts of the story, but I'm really looking forward to see how it all plays out. I'd say it's pretty damn good and can't wait for the expansion. Although, it does feel like you're playing part of the expansion already with how much has changed.

I've played around in it for but half an hour, and everything is just new, new, new! :w00t:

As I have level 60s of all characters, I decided to give my wizard a go this time. She had to drop exactly everything that she once was (at least she got to keep her beautiful voice, the same actor that was the evilest of evil in Aang: the Last Airbender). I started from the beginning of Act 1, picked Master difficulty and attributed all those paragon points, redid the passives and picked new left and right attack skills. Out she and the scoundrel went, and they met a world of push-over zombies. Soon I found my first yellow, only to realize I needed to configure the settings of my gaming mouse before I went utterly mad. I'll probably crank up the difficulty to Torment next time. I love where all this is going, though. One kind of potion, one kind of crafting mat. My invo is smiling broadly.

No Crusaders until the XP in March. I echo the comments above... the new team have made it more, well, Diablo. Combat is much more fun now, and I liked the way you can customise your toon using Paragon points. The drops are more intuitive and the optimization makes it feel much purdier. Bravo!

 

And behold, StuG the barbarian!

Interesting changes, I'll patch it up over the weekend when my bandwidth cap renews.
