Saying that, I wonder if the problems people are having on Inferno are not so much the difficulty spiking, but the fact that often you're in a random party with people all using their favoured personal skills.

I think it's partly that people don't use Monk/Barbarian because they have trouble in solo Inferno. In a team, they'd probably do quite well, but nobody wants to take that leap.

All credit to you, fella. I can't even imagine how you've managed that. Especially with all the latency issues. Every time I've played a HC character, it's always been in resignation that I would be let down by bad kit eventually, but lag would probably get me first!

Heh, unfortunately my ability to play has been near zero lately so I'm stuck half way through Nightmare on Hardcore. Killing the final boss on Normal was hard (I'll save spoilers for those still playing through for the first time) and I reached a new level of emotional instability throughout the fight xD

I'm thinking my streaming may not come for a veeeeeery long time at this rate. Hopefully the whole "monk is under powered" stuff will have been sorted out by the time I reach that point :P

How much gold you pulling in now? Do you find that those ridiculous prices on the AH are reachable for you now? My house-mates and I keep looking at items and thinking "wtf, no way can we ever get that amount of gold".

A good party is definitely a precondition of doing well on hell difficulty though!

Agreed. Currently going through Normal with my house-mates and we can already see how much more difficult it is than on our own. On harder difficulties I can see us really having to work together.

The first person to do it probably deserves a real life monetary prize just for being a boss at Diablo :-P

Haha. I'm hoping to get to Inferno with my hardcore character and then I'll probably start streaming when I do, just so the internet can share in my pain when I inevitably die xD Currently half way through Act 3 with him, only had a couple of close calls when my ping shot up.

Life can be real hard without a tank! >.<

Try soloing as a Demon Hunter. I've made it to act 2 and only died twice, way too many close calls though. I think I may end up ruining my "Vault" hotkey before the end of the game xD

Started a Monk on hardcore, only played for an hour or so with it last night. I'm not expecting to get far, anything after Skeleton King will be a bonus tbh :P

*fanboy stamp approved for above comment*

As a none fanboy, I have to agree with Revan. This is my first Diablo game, but I can already see it's turning out to be pretty nice.

I'm playing a Demon Hunter and right now I am in love with Twin Chakrams.

I'm also playing Demon Hunter, but I've only found 2 usable weapons so far (played for 1 hour 30min), so currently with a very sub-par crossbow.

For teaming with my mates, I was thinking of playing a Witch Doctor simply because they seem they'd be hilarious when they've got all their summoning abilities equipped. But a build like that would suck quite a lot in solo.

My one and only gripe with the game so far? People skipping event/boss scenes.

Going through solo for the cut-scenes/etc, when I go through with friends we're probably going to skip them.

I honestly don't see what's so great about it. And judging by the metacritic score (3.4/10), neither do most other people.

There's been a lot of hate over the servers being unprepared. The game itself is really nice, just people aren't being given a chance to try it out, so they're raging over it. People are also complaining about "bad graphics", which is a ridiculous thing to say, the game looks fine.

3. Lucius Dominitas. I can't stand him, he's more annoying than a Himoura. Drove me away, and probably several others.

I've said it a few times before, but, this. He is the only person I've ever snapped at OOC over their play style (I know, "bad Nathan") and I left Giblot because of it.

Edit: Deffo embarrassed by the number of times I've posted to this thread now. What a fanboy! >.<

Knowledgeable individual who specialises in a specific subset of gaming literature ;)

Amazon pulled off a seeming miracle with regards to the British postal service. They posted Diablo second class (or whatever they use for their free posting service) this morning, it arrived at my house today. Looks like my evening is sorted :D

So how many people are playing this at midnight?

I wanted to, but Amazon only sent out my pre-order today, so I've got to wait a few days before I get it :(

And what i heard about that so far have not made me interested so far.

Agreed. But worst of all: it isn't being developed by Bethesda. Almost worst of all: it isn't using Skyrim's engine, it's using SW:TOR's engine. So it's very likely not going to have any of that Elder Scrolls feel to it.

Might not be much info, but all the info I've heard so far makes me completely uninterested in it.

I may have got slightly addicted too...

Completed with Witch Doctor, Demon Hunter, Barbarian & Monk. Maxed Witch Doctor and Demon Hunter. Wanted to complete it with Wizard too, but they shut the servers before I went to bed and then I was working until the servers closed for the end of Open Beta :(

Demon Hunter and Monk seem a little over powered. I hardly ever took damage on my Demon Hunter because of the damage I could dole out at range (Rapid Fire ftw). Managed to get a 110 kill streak on Jar of Souls with the Monk, which seemed slightly silly - and that was only at level 7ish. Witch Doctor and Barbarian seem pretty well balanced, however.

Did anyone get to try co-op? I felt the difficulty scaled pretty well. Nightmarish monsters around most corners with one co-op buddy but they seemed pretty easy to kill if you both used your skills together.

Obviously they want you to use only one skill from each skillset and maybe that'll be fine later on, but right now it just feels a little dispiriting.

Yeah, at the moment it seems a little naff, but I can imagine once you get to higher levels the choices of skills and their runes you have will make for vastly differing builds between players of the same class (if it's balanced well, obviously).

You managed to try many classes out? I've not been able to log on much, so only tried Witch Doctor and still not finished the beta with him.

There you go. Apparently beta is only available on the US servers for now, so go to Options, Account and change your region to "The Americas". This solved it for me.

You then have to create a BattleTag. The link in-game didn't work for me, if it's the same for you, go here:

I was then able to log in successfully :D

The Beta only starts at 21h CEST, so in almost 6 hours. Meh :p

Yeah, I had planned to be able to play when it went live. Unfortunately my download speeds have been abysmal and am still downloading after ~9 hours :(

Sir, you have just utterly ruined any plans I had for this weekend! :-P

Glad I could help! :D

Currently downloading for the open beta weekend. Will probably try out Witch Doctor first, not sure after that.

Luckily for me I live with 3 guys who are also downloading, so I've got a ready made party :D

I've not played either of the other Diablo games but I'm told it's pretty similar to games like Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, which I loved, so hopefully I won't be let down.

Weird, MT now have a region in the far north.

We're just too cool to stay dead ;)
