Sigilstun: Great to see you again, what have you been doing in the mean time?  Can we find you on steam or something when you aren't around here?

In late D2 LoD, Uniques were the best thing, some sets later could be good, but most guides said, get these uniques or runewords.  D3 was all about "start with this 6 piece set" then you need certain things, and not too many builds.  Also you could just push a button to change over ..

D2 could have used some Quality of life stuff .. i'm sure a lot will happen between now and then.

It's got to have the loot hunt.  If it doesn't have that, it won't much interest from me.  I will still buy it, but I won't invest thousands of hours into it like I did with 2 and 3.  Hell, I still play D2 today for the loot hunt.  It never really gets old.

If they take the best parts of D2 and D3 and combine them, we will have a winner!

Fingers crossed, will wait and see I guess :)

I hope they do something to improve HC play. I would like to see some form of D2 like action, you lose the character
but not the gear. It takes forever to upgrade your Leg gems and they can be gone in an instant.

DITTO! I only gemmed one HC char and lost her to a disconnect. It took a long, long time to level a dozen gems to even 80-90 area. I never had the patience to try that again.

No I mean they seem to be bringing back so many things from D2.

Shit...even Duriel is back.  I killed that maggot around 40 times already. 

Next they will tell me they are bringing back Kaa.

I remember initially loving D3 as it referenced a lot of Diablo1 which I hadnt heard of in ages.  But the campaign mode for all its fun, wasn't fun the latter times going through it, and wasn't there in end game which was just random stuff.  Diablo2 didn't really have end game, we just kinda made it up and redid stuff we wanted.

The vacuum of new info will get people's imaginations going.  In the mean time, play things that are out, or are coming out.  I'm looking forward to Halo Reach coming to PC after 10 years next month!  and maybe Red Dead Redemption 2 after the early people finish their alpha testing.

Yeah, this was the impression I got, which is part of why I'm hyped. :D

Read the Itemisation post.  Looks really encouraging that it's going to be less like d3 and more like d2.

At least you're not going to be forced into the same gear.

I like the latest update on itemization.  Mr Llama had a video explaining it pretty well too.  More like D2 and less like D3 is good to me.
