Re: Diablo 3 Preview

Me and Wedge hammered that beta, completing it on each of the classes available, more than once sometimes lol!

Really looking forward to the release, didnt think I would enjoy D3 as much as I did so far as ive never played 1 or 2 and I couldnt get into other games of the same style (ie torchlight).

Thanks to the WoW annual pass, ill have the game the second of release, and for free too so ill be there with my monk asap

Is there different realms like in WoW or do you start your own games like in Diablo 2? How does it all work? Would be good to get it so we can all play together if we want.

You start your own game and just either invite friends from within the game or start up a party first and then pick which chapter of the story you want to do.

There seems to just be area servers, Eu, US etc. For the Beta we had to play on the US server because the EU was down. I think all it really affects though is the real money auction house feature as it is essentially a single player game so no need for multiple servers like wow.

I could be wrong however lol

Re: Diablo 3 Preview

Well if that's the case it sounds a lot like the old diablo.

You had offline characters and online characters and then you could join other peoples games or make your own game. Do you know if you have offline and online characters still or is it just one set you can take either off or on?

Yeah, it's essentially a single-player game that your friends can join in and as Wedge has mentioned in the review, as more friends join, the monsters get harder. Who wants to play with themselves anyhow

Re: Diablo 3 Preview

you have 1 persistent character rather than offline/online ones. Due to the RMAH thing they're implementing everything will be checked online so no naughty haxors give themselves some uber loots offline then try to flog it on the auction house.

I think that all of your characters are permanently online, I remember there being a bit of controversy over it when it was first announced.

And yeah, its a hell of a lot more fun playing with others, unlucky for those 'forever alone' types

Re: Diablo 3 Preview

Has anybody pre-ordered this and from where? Sarah, I know that you've got it free from WoW but anybody else?

I'm deciding between Amazon and just getting it from Bliz directly.

I would go with Blizz direct tbh, especially as they are opening up the installer a few days before release so you can get into the game itself quicker come release date.

Buying from blizz directly will be your quickest way of getting it. Granted it may not be the cheapest but you can pre load the game now, the installer unlocks on the 14th and 00:01 on the 15th the game will go live, no where else can really compete with that.

Mine's with the WoW annual pass too.
